Scott Brown Praises Michelle Obama Speech

Elizabeth Warren may be speaking in prime-time at the Democratic National Convention tonight, but Sen. Scott Brown, R-Mass., made sure to chime in on First Lady Michelle Obama's Tuesday night remarks. And unsurprisingly, he had only nice things to say. The Boston Herald:

"We've met her obviously and Gail has spent more time with her than I have. She's a striking woman, hard-charging and an exceedingly dedicated family person," Brown said. "Not only did Ann Romney, but I thought Michelle, really made their men stand out. They (the Obamas) raised two great kids. We have a lot in common in that regard. Our family comes first, so I thought she did a good job."

Brown has been emphasizing his bipartisan, moderate and independent credentials in his hotly contested race against Harvard professor and consumer advocate Elizabeth Warren.

When asked how Michelle Obama's speech compared to Ann Romney's speech last week before the Republican National Convention last week, Brown said, "I'm not into comparisons. They're both different people. They have different beliefs, different upbringings, and I thought they both did really well."

In Massachusetts, President Obama enjoys much greater popularity than former governor Mitt Romney (and is expected to win easily in November), and Brown has frequently praised the president.
