US first lady Michelle Obama has said that the four years of presidency has not changed the personality of Barack Obama and she loves her husband today more than she did when they married 23 years ago.
"When people ask me whether being in the White House has changed my husband, I can honestly say that when it comes to his character, and his convictions, and his heart, Barack Obama is still the same man I fell in love with all those years ago," Michelle said in her speech at the Democratic National Convention here.
Seeking the re-election of her husband, Michelle asked audience to stand together for the man they can trust to keep moving this great country forward. "My husband, our President, President Barack Obama is that man," she said.
Michelle said Obama started his career by turning down high paying jobs and instead working in struggling neighbourhoods where a steel plant had shut down, because for him "success isn't about how much money you make, it's about the difference you make in people's lives".
"He's the same man who, when our girls were first born, would anxiously check their cribs every few minutes to ensure they were still breathing, proudly showing them off to everyone we knew. That's the man who sits down with me and our girls for dinner nearly every night, patiently answering their questions about issues in the news, and strategising about middle school friendships," she said. "That's the man I see in those quiet moments late at night, hunched over his desk, poring over the letters people have sent him. The letter from the father struggling to pay his bills from the woman dying of cancer whose insurance company won't cover her care from the young person with so much promise but so few opportunities," the first lady said.
