DNC first night: Cory Booker rocked the convention hall. Bernie Sanders was a total mensch, and goes down in history a mensch whose grace is unparalleled.
But it was Michelle Obama who stole the night. What a speech! She’s been working eight years towards this speech and this night. Funny, isn’t it? The Obamas are hitting their stride in their eighth year. You kind of want them to stay four more years. I can’t wait to see what they do once they’re out of the White House.
Paul Simon performed “Bridge Over Troubled Water,” and underscored the night with elegance. No musical artists will complain this week that their songs were used without permission, that’s for sure.
Michelle Obama’s speech begins at 14:13.
