Ok, so I was pretty much knocked out by New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker's Democratic National Convention speech last night.
My thinking was "No way anyone will top that." And with First Lady Michelle Obama coming up next, even though I really like her, she's not previously been known for her soaring oratory.
And then I was proven wrong.
This was the speech of the night. Raising her voice with passion and clarity without being shrill, she evoked the responsibilities inherent in leading the country.
