After President Obama delivered his speech at the Democratic National Convention on Wednesday night, First Lady Michelle Obama had nothing but praise for her husband.
The First Lady tweeted at the end of the night, “That’s my man! Your truth, dignity and grace reminds us what real leadership looks like. I am always proud of our @POTUS.”

Both Michelle and Barack Obama both delivered impressive speeches at this year’s convention. Michelle’s speech also earned her a shoutout from Vice President Joe Biden. When he addressed the convention, Biden said:
‘And Michelle…I was talking to Barack today. It is no longer he who will give the best speech, we know who did that. You were incredible Monday night…Barack and I married way up.’
Both President and Michelle Obama spent ample time in their speeches emphasizing the faith they have in Hillary Clinton to lead the United States. Michelle called Clinton the only person “who I believe is truly qualified to be president of the United States.”
President Obama recalled himself and Clinton running against each other in the 2008 presidential election:
‘Now, eight years ago, Hillary and I were rivals for the Democratic nomination. We battled for a year and a half. Let me tell you, it was tough, because Hillary’s tough. Every time I thought I might have that race won, Hillary just came back stronger.’
‘But after it was all over, I asked Hillary to join my team. She was a little surprised, but ultimately said yes – because she knew that what was at stake was bigger than either of us. And for four years, I had a front-row seat to her intelligence, her judgment, and her discipline. I came to realize that her unbelievable work ethic wasn’t for praise or attention – that she was in this for everyone who needs a champion. I understood that after all these years, she has never forgotten just who she’s fighting for.’
Obama also echoed his wife’s statement that Clinton is the most qualified person for the job of running the country.
