"I think she did good"

I can't say I really liked Michelle Obama's speech at the DNC in Denver. Too calculated (express patriotism -- check, praise Hillary Clinton -- check, present Obama as a regular guy - check), too wifey. She wasn't talking to me, though, and she probably did well with regard to her target audience. The Obamas' daughters are, of course, adorable, and when Obama asked little Sasha how she thought her mother had done, it was very cute when she answered with a, strictly speaking, ungrammatical sentence. It made it sound a little less rehearsed. Sasha, I hope you'll get your dog!
