Michelle Speaks to the DNCC on My Birthday!

August 25, 2008 will go down in history once and for all as my 50th Birthday as well as the day Michelle Obama addressed the Democratic Convention in Denver, Colorado to explain why her man, Senator Barack Obama should be our next President of the United States.

Since I was celebrating my birthday with my dear friend, Rev. Lavisha Sally Walls Williams, I didn't see the address live, but this morning I read about it and saw video clips. All I can say is "Michelle, your husband will make an outstanding President and you'll make an excellent "First Lady. You already are. "
DENVER - Michelle Obama mixed the personal and the political Monday night in painting a picture of her husband, Sen. Barack Obama of Illinois, as a working-class advocate for the American dream who “will finally bring the change that we need.”
Obama stressed her and the senator’s middle-class backgrounds, saying the couple “were raised with so many of the same values: that you work hard for what you want in life, that your word is your bond and you do what you say you’re going to do, that you treat people with dignity and respect, even if you don’t know them and even if you don’t agree with them.”
She said her husband would rely on those precepts as he sought “to end the war in Iraq responsibly, to build an economy that lifts every family, to make health care available for every American and to make sure every child in this nation gets a world-class education all the way from preschool to college.”
“Barack will fight for people like them and ... Barack will finally bring the change that we need,” she said, promising that the senator would ask Americans “to believe in ourselves — to find the strength within ourselves to strive for the world as it should be.”
