The Social Poets: 2012 DNC Complete Speech: First Lady Michelle Obama, Hard Work More Important Than Income: From Denny: This is the speech touted by analysts as flawlessly and passionately delivered. Michelle Obama is definitely President Obama's best asset in this close election. Her popularity soars higher than his by a long shot.
She is also known as the Hugger In Chief, slowing down receiving lines and event visits to stop and hug everyone who wants that close and kindly connection. Kids love her.
Of course, her aides all groan as she takes far too long (their estimation) to make it down the way to start an event. Awesome Hugging is quickly becoming her signature. I find it delightful in a time when society is always too much in a hurry to stop and really notice one person at a time.
It will be interesting to see, decades from now, how her hugging visits affected and inspired some of those kids to go into politics or public service. Remember, it was President Bill Clinton that met President John Kennedy in person when he was a teen. That meeting inspired Clinton to go into public service.
