After being introduced by military mother Elaine Brye, First Lady Michelle Obama addressed the DNC on Tuesday night, speaking in support of her husband, President Barack Obama, and talking of her own role, including self-titled "Mom-in-Chief."

"I love that for Barack, there is no such thing as 'us' and 'them.' He doesn't care whether you're a Democrat, a Republican, or none of the above. He knows that we all love our country, and he's always ready to listen to good ideas. He's always looking for the very best in everyone he meets."
