What a moving and beautiful speech last night! Michelle Obama’s speech drove 28,003 tweets-per-minute at its peak!
“Today, after so many struggles and triumphs and moments that have tested my husband in ways I never could have imagined, I have seen firsthand that being president doesn’t change who you are – it reveals who you are,” she said.
“That’s the man I see in those quiet moments late at night, hunched over his desk, poring over the letters people have sent him,” she said. “I see the concern in his eyes … and I hear the determination in his voice as he tells me, `You won’t believe what these folks are going through, Michelle . it’s not right. We’ve got to keep working to fix this. We’ve got so much more to do.”
She was so concise, articulate, and energizing, definitely a speech to be remembered. And she looked divine to boot!! So glad that President Obama has such a solid, intellectual partner with a real investment in her position.
