Sights and sounds of the DNC
'Mom In Chief" Michelle Obama Signed, Sealed, and Delivered!
Yes, Democrats want to get out the vote.
They want to inspire those that worked to elect President Obama in 2008 by energizing them to knock on doors.
Our First Lady's speech certainly will do that.
Most importantly, she touched our hearts.
Her words weaved a tapestry about the Obama's journey together that allowed them to understand our lives.
They had student debt, a mortgage, and struggled to make ends meet.
She said her husband took a job as a community organizer which paid far less than another he could have taken because he was concerned about other people.
She explained that Barack Obama's idea of success is 'not how much money you have, but the difference you make in people's lives'.
"Being President hasn't changed Barack.
Mrs. Obama said ' being president doesnt have to change someone that has strong character, but it does reveal who you are'.
Well, tonight's speech by Michelle Obama revealed that this race is entirely about character, integrity and empathy.
The Obama's are there to work for us. Excellent speech! Very inspirational.
