Stirring speech draws praise from across the political spectrum.
When the Democratic National Convention opened on Monday to a chorus of boos from Bernie Sanders supporters, much of the attention focused on what the runner-up for the nomination would say to calm his faithful following.
But someone else stole the show.
First Lady Michelle Obama won praise for giving a stirring and optimistic speech in which she managed to attack Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump without once mentioning his name.
Praise for the speech came from across the political spectrum:
One of the loveliest things about Michelle’s speech was watching my Twitter feed united in joy for what feels like the first time in AGES.

I’m saying this as a partisan who takes the other side seriously; this speech is a grand slam for Dems. Over the back wall, ball in orbit.
