Celebrity Reactions to Michelle Obama’s Amazing DNC Speech
Michelle Obama’s speech at the opening night of the 2012 Democratic Convention in Charlotte, N.C. left everyone in awe, including a huge number of celebrities.
It’s being said that if Obama takes a second term in the White House, his wife will be the one to thank after her speech that not only reinstated hope in voters, but also struck an emotional chord with the audience. She didn’t go out to the podium and deliver facts and figures, instead she poured her heart out and turned politics into a personal account. She noted how Obama knows what it is to live the American dream, and wants that for everyone.
So what do you do today when something sparks your interest? Tweet about it, and celebrities sure did.
