A great speech from Michelle... or whoever

Michelle Obama, it was generally agreed, gave a great speech at the Democratic convention - certainly it was much better than the speech given the previous week at the Republican convention by Melania Trump, large parts of which were apparently lifted from a speech given a few years ago by Michelle Obama.

So it is quite an achievement on the part of Michelle Obama, to be providing the best bits for her own party and for the opposition, and it would be even better if she actually wrote these speeches herself, but then how many public figures of any kind do that any more?

We know that Melania's speech was written by someone else, who came out and confessed to her plagiarism of Michelle Obama, though it might have been more accurate for this speechwriter to state that she confessed to her plagiarism of Michelle's speechwriter.
