Smart Politics study--based on accepted model--finds that Michelle Obama's speech this week ranked as the one written at the "highest grade level" ever for a First Lady at a convention--12th grade, to be exact, a very high mark in politics. Now consider this: It had earlier found Ann Romney's speech last week at the lowest level ever: 5th grade. Barely out of grammar school, if that.
BTW, they also find that Michelle's husband's three State of the Union addresses reached only the 8th grade level.
