Michelle Obama's National Democratic Convention Speech

Michelle Obama, a Black woman, addressing the nation, makes me a weepy mess. How wonderful!
The truth matters. Gratitude. Humility. From the teachers who inspired us to the janitors who kept our schools clean: We learned to treat everyone with respect.

Being president doesn't change who you are; it reveals who you are.

Equal pay for equal work. ... Healthcare reform was the right thing to do. ... Women are more than capable of making their own choices about their bodies and their healthcare. ... Attend college without a mound of debt. ... Everyone to have the same opportunity no matter who we are or where we're from or what we look like or who we love. ... I love my husband today even today than four years ago. ... Change is hard, change is slow, but eventually we get there.
