Monday/ steady, measured and well-informed

First Lady Michelle Obama hit a home run with her speech at the Convention tonight, many political observers just saying Wow!  The speech was heartfelt and personal, about her eight years in the White House (‘I wake up every morning in a house built by slaves’), how she and the President had to protect their daughters, and try to give them as normal a life as they could.  She also had praise for Hillary Clinton and for her tenacity in the face of opposition, and unmistakable criticism for Donald Trump : saying that the big issues cannot be boiled down to 140 characters (a reference to Trump’s Twitter messages).  She also said that since the president has the nuclear codes, the nation needs someone is steady, measured and well-informed.  Yes, let’s all agree about that !
