“You got the sense when you talk about authenticity, she has it in spades. She has that voice, she has clarity, and she knows what she is out there wanting to do,” Perino, who served as President George W. Bush's press secretary, said. “She was trying to get everybody to really focus and then she had a call to action: Ask for your ballot tonight."

"I think that the DNC, if they look over the course of the night, the first virtual convention of our history, I think they would say that Michelle Obama stuck the landing," she added.
