Did you watch? I’m an open admirer of Michelle O, and I gotta give it up for my girl — she was stunning tonight. First of all — that dress. That color. GORGEOUS. Her makeup, flawless. And her words, poignant and resonant.
In case you missed the speech, Yahoo and CNN both have recaps. She shared her family background and her father’s struggles through illness, she explained her attraction and admiration for Barack, commemorated the historic significance of the timing of the Democratic National Convention — the 88th anniversary of women winning the right to vote, and the 45th anniversary of Dr. King’s “I have a dream” speech — and payed tribute to Hillary Clinton to thunderous applause. She said all of the right things to directly address those who would still question her patriotism and pride in America.
NPR has a transcript here. I just want to know — did you watch Michelle’s speech tonight? Did she nail it, or am I just hopelessly biased? What did you think?
