The anti-thesis of the hatred and evil that the Republican party has been spewing for the last several years, this is a truly classy woman: Michelle Obama, the First Lady of the United States of America. She is intelligence personified. She is history in the making. She is grace on earth. At the Democratic National Convention, she gave a speech that went above and beyond the confines of our political system – it rattled heaven and shook the world with its power and import.
The story that has brought me to this stage tonight. The story of generations of people who felt the lash of bondage, the shame of servitude, the sting of segregation, but who kept on striving and hoping and doing what needed to be done so that today, I wake up every morning in a house that was built by slaves. And I watch my daughters, two beautiful, intelligent, black young women, playing with their dogs on the White House lawn. And because of Hillary Clinton, my daughters and all our sons and daughters now take for granted that a woman can be president of the United States. ~ Michelle Obama
