Can I Vote for Michelle?
I don't know about you, but I got goosebumps watching the crowd at the Democratic convention last night. Look around - it truly was a melting pot of ages, genders, race, ethnicities. And I'm not even a Democrat (I've made myself completely useless by becoming a member of the Green Party). When Michelle Obama gave her speech, it restored a little bit of what has been lost over the past eight years. Maybe it was all cliche and convention rhetoric, but dang it, she was awesome.
Wouldn't it be lovely to have a president and first lady who were eloquent and intelligent? Who wish to govern from a place of hope, not fear (even if it doesn't always solve the problem)? Yes we can!
