Tonight, First Lady Michelle Obama took the Democratic Convention to church with a good old fashioned fire and brimstone sermon that provided a strong rebuttal to the Republican Party. Without ever mentioning Mitt Romney, she brilliantly dissected the GOP candidate and the Republican platform; laying waste to every argument that team Romney has put forward in support of their candidacy. She delivered a powerful line: "Being President doesn't change who you are, it reveals who you are." Her charm and warmth were well on display as she drove the delegates to their feet and had the packed Time Warner Cable Arena rocking. The real challenge now is for the rest of the convention speakers to keep the momentum of the First Lady’s speech going for the rest of the convention. By the way Mr. President, you have your work cut out for you come Thursday night. You better bring your AA game.
