Scoot Show 210pm First Lady Michelle Obama's Speech
Last night on the first night of the Democratic convention – did you get a sense of a united America? Not everyone watches the conventions – but you all hear about and read about what was said. The Democrats are still somewhat divided within their ranks – but do you get a sense there was a message of uniting America? AND: Even if you don’t like President Obama – Michelle Obama gave a stirring speech last night to the convention and the nation. One part of the speech stood out. The First Lady talked about waking up every morning in a house that was built by slaves and she thinks about how her daughters – young black females – play in the White House yard. She said this in a way that made it seem as if she was recognizing that the past is over and we should look at and focus on the opportunities available today. How are you reacting to that part of the Michelle Obama’s speech?
