Given Michelle Obama's clear purpose to identify herself as "one of you," during last night's Democratic festivities, the choice of "American Girl" (Tom Petty) as Hillary's introductory music seems like a really poor choice. Just reeks of the subtext, "here's the white, fair-haired, REAL American girl. Sure, Michelle's like us too, but..."
Yeah, it's nitpicking, but this convention so far just seems riddled with mistakes.
