First lady Michelle Obama gave one of the best speeches, if not the best, of the opening night of the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia. It certainly couldn’t have hurt that she was one of the few speakers who could have commanded and end to the non-stop heckling by Bernie Sanders supporters, who were shushed quickly.

Cali Berners just tried to bust out a Bernie chant and got *hushed* with a quickness.

Mrs. Obama went after Donald Trump several times without mentioning him, at one point taking a familiar jab at his “Make America Great Again” slogan.

Especially, don’t let anyone tell you that it needs to be fundamentally transformed. America fell for that one already.
"Don't ever let anyone tell you that this country isn't great." Michelle Obama says. Glad she's finally proud of her country #DNCinPHL

More than a few people noticed quite a turnaround from the person who told the country in 2008, “For the first time in my adult life, I am really proud of my country.”
So it went from only being proud of her country for first time at age 43 to don't let anyone tell you this country isn't great.Which is it?
