Michelle Obama takes aim at President Trump during her Democratic Convention address.

Former 1st lady Michelle Obama has maintained her mantra of going high when others go low. “Going high is the only thing that works,” she said on Monday night.

In the keynote address of the first day of the Democratic National Convention, Obama hailed Joe Biden as a “profoundly decent man” and highlighted his experience as vice president under her husband’s administration.

Obama said that she’d seen Biden at work and that he’d proved himself capable of handling the demands of the job. She cited several of the Obama administration’s achievements as evidence of Biden’s aptness for office, from expanding health care under the Affordable Care Act to rallying allies to combat climate change.

“I know that regardless of our race, age, religion, or politics, when we close out the noise and the fear and truly open our hearts, we know that what’s going on in this country is just not right. This is not who we want to be,” Obama said. “Donald Trump is the wrong president for our country. He has had more than enough time to prove that he can do the job, but he is clearly in over his head. He cannot meet this moment. He simply cannot be who we need him to be for us. It is what it is.”

“If you take one thing from my words tonight, it is this,” she continued. “If you think things cannot possibly get worse, trust me, they can; and they will if we don’t make a change in this election. If we have any hope of ending this chaos, we have got to vote for Joe Biden like our lives depend on it.

Obama called on voters to rally around Biden, evoking the 2008 and 2012 turnout that took her husband to the White House. She discouraged voters from not voting as a protest of Biden’s nomination in what seemed to be a reference to the Bernie Sanders supporters who loudly voiced their discontent with Hillary Clinton’s nomination in 2016.

“This is not the time to withhold our votes in protest or play games with candidates who have no chance of winning,“ Obama said.
