Barack Obama and daughters Sasha (left) and Malia watching Michelle Obama deliver her speech at last night’s Democrat National Convention.

How did it go?


11 pm. Stunning, brilliant, moving, passionate and right. Flawless. That was a speech a presidential nominee would be proud to have given. The best speech of the conventions so far. There was an emotional arc and steel to this that was as suffused with patriotism as it was with love. Yes, I’m gushing. But gushing is what I feel. And this is live-blogging. So sue me. I’ve never heard a speech from a First Lady anywhere close to this. Andrew Sullivan, Daily Beast
