Presidential Poll: Which Wife's Speech Do You Like?

Michelle Obama and Ann Romney both delivered powerful speeches about their husbands during the Democratic and Republican National Conventions. Did either woman's speech sway your vote?

Just for fun, let's pretend that you had to vote for a presidential candidate based ONLY on a speech given by the candidate's wife. 

After watching speeches delivered by Ann Romney at the Republican National Convention and Michelle Obama at the Democratic National Convention, which candidate would you choose?

Your "success envy" (as Lord and Lady Romney so derisively call it) is showing. Perhaps if you defined your terms, e.g., "wealthy bank vice president" (what do you consider wealthy?) and named the "elite" schools which Barack and Michelle attended and the circumstances of their attendance, and listed the source(s) of your "information," your screed might at least appear to have some merit.

You must drink a LOT to Kool-Aid, George - NOBODY started witha silver spoon in their mouth. And Michelle had the 'opportunity' to fine-tune her words AFTER hearing Ann. You are on the left, on drugs, or a simpleton.

George I concur with your original Stance that Michelle Had the better "talk" with the citizens of the United States!!! Anyone that does not know how to use spell check when writing a rebuttal OR comment with hurling insults are in my opinion simple, under-educated and VERY Misguided.... the exact same people who will be looking for a handout after Romney and Ryan rip the rug from underneath their sub-par existence's. FACT CHECK (as we MUST do with Republicans....) Michelle Obama DID NOT attend an Elite High School it was a public school for Above average students..... Barack went to a Prep school on a SCHOLORSHIP!!! please check yourself before you spread silly lies!!!

Damn, Brian! I never would have said a thing on this subject had I realized what a rapier wit you would bring to the field of battle. You are amazing. I stand in awe of your analytical acumen and originality. Kool-aid? What a clever metaphor! C'mon. Be honest. Did you formulate that on your own or did you copy it? "Left, drugs, & simpleton?" Are those my only choices? Brilliant, Brian! Simply brilliant!
