Excerpts from Mrs. Obama's speech.*
When it comes to giving our kids the education they deserve, Barack knows that like me and like so many of you, he never could've attended college without financial aid.
And believe it or not, when we were first married, our combined monthly student loan bills were actually higher than our mortgage.
We were so young, so in love, and so in debt.
So in the end, for Barack, these issues aren't political – they're personal.
Barack knows the American Dream because he's lived it...
And he believes that when you've worked hard, and done well, and walked through that doorway of opportunity...you do not slam it shut behind you...
I know from experience that if I truly want to leave a better world for my daughters, and all our sons and daughters...if we want to give all our children a foundation for their dreams and opportunities worthy of their promise...if we want to give them that sense of limitless possibility – that belief that here in America, there is always something better out there if you're willing to work for it...
Thank you, God bless you, and God bless America.** - Transcript of Michelle Obama's speech at DNC
*Made me think of the Ashford and Simpson song.
**She said "God" twice!
FACT CHECK! I was right in choosing the songs I did. First Lady's False Fairy Tale of Struggle.
