Michelle Obama's Speech Earns Raves
Stunning, brilliant, moving, passionate and right. Flawless. That was a speech a presidential nominee would be proud to have given. The best speech of the conventions so far. There was an emotional arc and steel to this that was as suffused with patriotism as it was with love. Yes, I'm gushing. But gushing is what I feel. And this is live-blogging. So sue me. I've never heard a speech from a First Lady anywhere close to this.You'll find pretty much the same elsewhere in the Dem-o-verse. I found the "mom-in-chief" bit rather cloying, otherwise it was a home run which included two references to same-sex marriage. Standing ovation, Mrs. President.
