Michelle Obama at the Podium

Lots of Americans found out just what a great speaker Michelle Obama is. She brought the crowd to its feet when she praised Hillary Clinton and Joe Biden and spoke of her love of her country:
All of us driven by a simple belief that the world as it is just won't do — that we have an obligation to fight for the world as it should be.
That is the thread that connects our hearts. That is the thread that runs through my journey and Barack's journey and so many other improbable journeys that have brought us here tonight, where the current of history meets this new tide of hope.
That is why I love this country.
If her job was to draw a connection between her family's life and the lives of families everywhere, then she succeeded. I saw tears in a few eyes as she spoke of her parents, brother, husband and daughters with pride and warmth.
