The Michelle Obama Speech

Michelle's brilliant speech last night.

In case you missed it, here’s Michelle’s speech in its entirety.  Word is she wrote it herself and worked on it for over a month.  Basically, she set out the Democratic vision–and Barack’s vision–for the country’s future, one that’s far different from the extreme individualism proposed by our friends on the Right.

In the Twitterverse, the speech spawned two great hashtags: #pindropstatus (with a hat tip to Professor Blair Kelley, ’cause Michelle had folks hanging on her every word) and #dropsmic (for that exit music by Beyonce).
