From NPR

For Michelle Obama, this election is about the kids. On the opening night of the Democratic National Convention, the first lady wove her vision for the next generation with her hope for the next president.

"This election, and every election, is about who will have the power to shape our children for the next four or eight years of their lives," she said, adding that Hillary Clinton is the only candidate "who I trust with that responsibility."

Thank you so much. You know, it's hard to believe that it has been eight years since I first came to this convention to talk with you about why I thought my husband should be President. Remember how I told you about his character and conviction, his decency and his grace — the traits that we've seen every day that he's served our country in the White House.

On Monday night, the Democratic National Convention featured speeches from a string of labor leaders. They spoke for different constituencies — teachers, public sector workers, builders — but together they delivered their unifying message: Clinton, not Trump, is the best candidate for American workers.

"He thinks he's a tough guy. Well, Donald, I worked in the mines with tough guys," said Richard Trumka, president of the AFL-CIO. "I know tough guys. They're friends of mine. And Donald, you're no tough guy; you're a phony."

Bernie Sanders addresses the Democratic National Convention Monday night, after an day of disunity in the Philadelphia arena. Read his remarks as prepared for delivery here:

Good evening.

How great it is to be with you tonight.
