FLOTUS goes all out in final impassioned speech at Clinton rally
Hillary Clinton's Philadelphia rally on Monday night was the Democratic candidate's final hurrah before Election Day — and the Obamas were there to let everyone know they're with her.
After performances from Bruce Springsteen and Jon Bon Jovi, Chelsea Clinton introduced her father, Bill Clinton, who brought first lady Michelle Obama onto the stage in front of a large crowd at Independence Hall.
Obama, who has been traveling around the country in the past weeks championing Clinton for president, got right to the point about voting and picking a strong leader.
First Lady Michelle Obama: "We deserve a leader who sees our diversity not as a threat but as a blessing."

"We deserve a leader that we can trust," Michelle Obama told the crowd. "A leader that takes this job seriously."
She went on, saying, "We deserve a leader who will ensure that our daughters are safe and respected and that our sons understand that truly strong men are compassionate and kind. We deserve a leader ... who sees our diversity not as a threat, but as a blessing."
Reminiscent of her Democratic National Convention speech, Michelle Obama brought up her and her husband's humble roots, along with Bill Clinton's. She lauded America as a country "where a girl like me from the south side of Chicago whose great-great grandfather was a slave can go to some of the finest universities on Earth. A country where the biracial son of a single mother from Hawaii and the son of a single mother from Arkansas can both make it to the White House."
The first lady made it through her entire speech without mentioning Donald Trump by name.
Barack Obama, who has been stumping for Clinton non-stop in the final days before the election, kept his wife's momentum going.
"I still believe in hope," he said.
He touched on his 2008 campaign theme and urged voters to head to the polls Tuesday.
Alluding to elements of Trump's campaign, Obama asked voters to "reject fear and pick hope."

Since it was a "Get Out the Vote" rally, the president was sure to remind the crowd, "Don't boo, vote!"
