I was in tears!!! What a beautifully written, heartfelt speech. What an amazing moment for her, and through her for me, to be living in this moment when the first African-American president of the US is a real possibility. As a minority living in this country and grateful for all of its opportunities, I truly believe that the people of this land can come together and make significant progress in the many difficult challenges facing us now. With a family like the Obamas in the White House, I am confident that we will have true leadership, something we have been lacking for so long now.
I am so proud of this country right now, so proud!!
And those two girls are SO CUTE!!!!!
p.s. It was also wonderful seeing Ted up there looking strong and determined.
Definitely a well-done speech. I was laughing at how some pundits were dissecting it and critiquing - really, it's the speech from a prospective First Lady! It did exactly what it should do by giving us a personal side of the candidate, a glimpse of his family, and more about her and her life.
Even though I'm not voting for Obama, I do like his family and his girls are just adorable!
It was an outstanding speech - I couldn't have been happier. Moving, real, and down to earth.
We watched it on MSNBC, and they pretty much let the speech, speak for itself. There just wasn't anything to criticize in that. When I heard that PBS (Wallace) & Faux News were saying that it was horrible - it just sealed it for me. It was clear they got their talking points before hand, because their comments were almost identical. I never watch faux anyway - but it was disappointing hearing such partisan non-sense coming from PBS.
