Pitching the country on Michelle
Subject: Pitching the country on Michelle
I"m pretty sure it's unprecedented, the nominee's wife introducing him, but if not that, CERTAINLY, this long, flattering speech introducing the wife of the nominee is unprecedented. It's a smart tactical move, though. There is the very real need to sell White folks on the idea of a Black man for President, and selling them on his wife is probably a need too, especially since she's been cast variously as an "uppity negro" or "angry Black woman" in the media.
