CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - Democrats are using one of President Barack Obama's strong suits, that voters believe he understands the problems of ordinary people, to trump his weakest suit, the economy.
Michelle Obama played those cards with force in a Democratic convention speech Tuesday night.
She declared that after four years as president, her husband is still the man who once drove a rust-bucket on their dates, rescued a coffee table from the trash and knows the struggles of everyday Americans because he lived them.
