I’m still PUMPED after Michelle Obama’s speech last night at the Democratic National Convention.

Her description of her husband before and after he became Commander-in-Chief was so personal. Through telling the world about her belief in and devotion to her husband, Michelle Obama made others believe in him too.
While I continued to swoon over this amazing woman, mother and wife I remembered a blog post I wrote before the Obamas moved into the White House. As a staff writer and blogger at The Times in Shreveport, La., I publicly and shamelessly first gushed over her on our blog for young adults.
