If there’s anyone who took the spotlight and stole the show during the recent Democratic National Convention in USA, no one would contest that it’s Michelle Obama, the First Lady of the United States.
With her finesse, intelligence, and conviction, it is no wonder that aspirants try to imitate her and uhm, her speeches. *coughsMelaniaTrumpcoughs*
Even her own husband, 44th President of the United States, Barack Obama couldn’t help but praise Michelle on her speech.
Incredible speech by an incredible woman. Couldn't be more proud & our country has been blessed to have her as FLOTUS. I love you, Michelle.

Persuading Americans to support for Hillary Clinton, Obama delivered a memorable and emotional speech that brought the raucous audience to their feet.
Obama also took subtle pokes at Republican nominee Donald Trump. And with that powerful speech, she had just become the perfect Trump antidote we have all been waiting for.
But more than delivering a devastating riposte to Trump, the feisty Obama brought the delegates to tears and left us plenty of inspirational thoughts to reflect on.
1.”We explain that when someone is cruel or acts like a bully, you don’t stoop to their level. No, our motto is, when they go low, we go high.”
”In this election and every election is about who will have the power to shape our children for the next four or eight years of their lives.”
”I want someone with the proven strength to persevere, someone who knows this job and takes it seriously, someone who understands that the issues a president faces are not black and white and cannot be boiled down to 140 characters.”
”I want a president with a record of public service, someone whose life’s work shows our children that we don’t chase fame and fortune for ourselves, we fight to give everyone a chance to succeed.”
”I want a president who will teach our children that everyone in this country matters, a president who truly believes in the vision that our Founders put forth all those years ago that we are all created equal, each a beloved part of the great American story.”
”Don’t let anyone ever tell you that this country isn’t great, that somehow we need to make it great again.”
”I want a leader who is worthy of that truth, a leader who is worthy of my girls’ promise and all our kids’ promise, a leader who will be guided every day by the love and hope and impossibly big dreams that we all have for our children.”
“In this election, we cannot sit back and hope that everything works out for the best. We cannot afford to be tired, or frustrated, or cynical.”
”That is the story of this country…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.”
“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.”
