About Governor Granholm's DNC Speech:
“One of the most rousing speeches of the gathering” - The Wall Street Journal
“Pitch-perfect… an address that electrified the convention” - The Nation
“Her speech was short, but incredibly potent… worth a quick look for the history books” - BradBlog

"A truly special event"
- The Economist World in 2011 Festival
