United States first lady Michelle Obama lovingly praised her husband in a prime-time Democratic convention speech as a devoted husband and caring father at home and a "man we can trust" to revive the nation's weak economy as president.
Mrs. Obama, given a huge ovation and describing herself as the "mom in chief," made no mention of Republican challenger Mitt Romney in her Tuesday night speech closing the convention's opening day.

She says her husband reminds her "that change is hard, and change is slow and it never happens all at once" but "eventually, we get there, we always do."
