Former Michigan Governor Jennifer Granholm, "where the trees are just the right height," went old school and delivered a barn burner of a speech on President Obama's rescue of the auto industry that had the convention hall rocking before the main speakers of the night. I've never seen her so fired up, she was really feeling it from the delegates.
"Now sure, sure, Mitt Romney loves our lakes and our trees. He loves our cars so much they even have their own elevator. But the people who design and build and sell those cars? Well, in Romney's world the cars get the elevator and the workers get the shaft! You know what I'm saying" (wink).
Granholm brilliantly led a recitation of auto jobs saved in each of the 'battleground" states that brought the convention hall to its feet to a chant of "USA! USA! USA!"
"In your car and on your ballot the 'D' is for drive forward, the 'R' is for reverse. In this election we are driving forward, not back."
