FILE - This April 11, 2104 file photo shows first lady Michelle Obama speaking in the East Room of the White House in Washington. When President Barack Obama travels abroad, getting just the leader of the free world doesn’t seem to be enough. Countries want the first lady, too. But Michelle Obama won’t join her husband when he heads to Asia next week and her absence is likely to sting, especially in Japan. It’s the first of four countries on Obama’s travel schedule and the only one welcoming him on an official state visit.  (AP Photo/Jacquelyn Martin, File)
