Missed the VMAs because I was tuned into the final night of the 2012 Democratic National Convention.
In fact, the whole week was full of energy and hope at the DNC this week and I was truly inspired by many who spoke — the convention seemed to really reveal the heart of America — a major difference from the RNC.
Anyway, I thoroughly enjoyed First Lady Michelle Obama‘s speech, Bill Clinton‘s and Vice President Joe Biden‘s.
President Barack Obama asked America on Thursday night to give him a second term, in a speech reaching back to the touchstone of “hope and change” that propelled him to the White House in 2008, while also acknowledging the unfinished work in achieving that promise. (NBCNews.com)
Here’s that speech below.
