WOW

Michellepauljrichardsgetty

One of the best, most moving, intimate, rousing, humble, and beautiful speeches I've heard from a convention platform. Maybe she should be running for president. You don't need any commentary from me. This was a home-run. And sincere. Thank God that in the end, the truth struggles out there. Just look at her mother's face.WOW

– Andrew Sullivan

And Andrew has this to say:

It hits you, doesn't it? I'm watching all the usual biography for a first lady and president and listening to her brother and realizing: black Americans - proud, unapologetic, culturally mainstream African-Americans - are now running this show. I knew this was coming. But watching it, even in these tiny ways, is striking.

How great that is; and how long a time it has been coming. Whatever happens in this crazy election season, this matters.

And then this:

There was plenty I didn't like about this night, as you can tell if you scroll down. But it succeeded in the most important task. Michelle did it. She more than did it. She struck fear in the GOP tonight. Their lies about the Obamas will fail. As they should.
