China goes abuzz over glamorous new first lady

In China, citizens are abuzz about the country's new first lady, Peng Liyuan. The chatter is especially lively on China's version of Twitter, called Weibo, where users are saying things like "Our first lady finally shines again".

They are also writing "Her shoes are really classic, and who designed her bag?"

Erin Burnett asked our Errol Barnett why the Chinese are such fans of their version of Michelle Obama.
