The Annotated Michelle Obama
Quite a package at NYT right now: video of Michelle Obama's speech last night, transcript and full annotation by its reporter--also author of bestselling book on the subject--Jodi Kantor. At one point: "Many classic Michelle Obama beliefs in this speech -- wealthy people aren't better, they often just have more luck, opportunity and access." In conclusion: "In contrast to the speech that Ann Romney, Mitt Romney’s wife, gave at the Republican convention last week, Mrs. Obama avoids any kind of political confrontation: No talk of Republicans or Romney or even the other side."
