I know that following my post from the other day with Michelle Obama’s speech from the DNC runs the risk of turning this into a political blog but watching the speech it was amazing how well she connected the values that Republicans reportedly espouse (hard work, sacrifice, not complaining about one’s social position) to the goals of the Democratic party (ensuring that everybody has a chance to succeed through hard work and sacrifice). It was also amazing to see a political speech that didn’t rely on lies (or even “spin”). Even if I could have done without so many references to being a mother, this is going to be a tough act for the rest of the speakers at the DNC to follow. Maybe they saved the wrong Obama for last.
I’ve heard that this guy was pretty good, too.
