VIDEO: Michelle Obama's Face-To-Face With A Heckler

CNN has video that lets you see and hear some of what it was like Tuesday night when first lady Michelle Obama confronted a heckler who had interrupted her during a Democratic fundraiser at a home in Washington, D.C.

The news network says it got the clip from GetEQUAL, a group that advocates for lesbians and gays. It was a GetEQUAL activist who interrupted the first lady.
