    Watched the speech last night. It was a little more generic than I had hoped for, considering what a gifted speaker he is and how much he seems to have a sense of theater (and I mean that in a good way – Presidents should I always understand their role as figurehead). The end of the speech where he said his thanks was fun to watch. He seems to genuinely love Joe Biden and I think that is awesome to see. And I couldn’t help but say out loud, in front of the wife, that Michelle Obama is without a doubt one of the most beautiful First Ladies we have had. And she’s also a rock star. What a role model for women of all ages.

    I’m genuinely looking forward to seeing what they do with the next chapter of their lives.Report
