Fresh quote to clear things up for the record, Michelle Obama said "Of course I am proud of our country."

Whether it is a strength or a weakness, said Obama, a guest host on ABC's "The View," "I wear my heart on my sleeve.

Host Whoopi Goldberg--fresh from a great night Sunday as host of the Tony awards show--tells Michelle--and us viewers that she wants to clear up what she calls "that quote."

Goldberg runs the tape of Obama's most controversial episode when she says "For the first time in my adult lifetime, I'm really proud of my country."

Goldberg notes Obama's emphasis on the word really--making the point that the quote is not so devastating if you take the word really into account.
