I wish I could have been a fly on the wall in a couple of homes as some folks I know watched Michelle Obama tonight. Could anyone come away from that speech, from watching that obviously loving All-American family, those beautiful little girls with their Daddy and Mama, and not admit, regardless of his politics and how he will vote in November, this man, this woman, are not the caricatures that the wild right wingers paint. Our politics have gotten so crazy. Some Republicans see character assassination as their only winning path in 2008.
This is a good night for our ticket. I believe Michelle's was the most effective speech by a candidate's spouse that I have ever witnessed. She told the story of this good man. America knows more about what Michelle and Barack Obama care about and who they are. The vast majority of those watching will like and admire them. Most folks will agree, they're just people like us who love their country and want a good future for their children.
Way to go, Michelle. You knocked it out of the park!
