PHILADELPHIA — First lady Michelle Obama offered a glowing endorsement of presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, but the media, in return, heralded Obama.
“This and every election is about who will have the power to shape our children for the next four to eight years of their lives,” Obama said as she spoke from the Wells Fargo Arena in Philadelphia. “There is only one person I trust with that responsibility. Only one person I believe is truly qualified to be president of the United States, and that is Hillary Clinton.”
But, while Obama said she does want a president who is not “boiled down to 140 characters,” she did receiving glowing praise from the media — on Twitter.

I said this in 2012, and I'll say it again: Michelle Obama is a better speaker than her husband, and her husband is a damn good speaker.

Michelle Obama's speech is one that black mothers, in particular, will show to their daughters for a very long time. #DemsInPhilly

Obama sought to throw her weight behind Clinton, despite any discord among the party, as she said, “I’m with her.”
