Washington: In an embarrassment to the US
presidency, the White House press office has reportedly spelt
First Lady Michelle Obama`s name wrong.

In a media release sent out on Tuesday evening,
Michelle`s name was spelled with just the one `L` -- the error
was committed by an aide in the White House press office, the
`Daily Mail` online reported.

"Michele and I are deeply saddened by the loss
of life, injuries, and damage that have occurred as a result
of the recent earthquake and tsunami in West Sumatra," the
release was quoted as saying.

However, on Thursday, the White House sent out a
corrected version.

As the release was being sent out Tuesday night,
the First Lady was giving a speech at a campaign fundraiser
for California Senator Barbara Boxer.

She said her husband`s presidential campaign was never
about putting one man in the White House, but about building a
movement to restore the American dream.
