"Michelle LaVaughn Robinson, young lady of the south side, for as far back as 25 years, you have not exclusively been my significant other and mother of my youngsters, you have been my closest companion," Obama told the main woman, situated before him dressed all in dark. 
"You went up against a part you didn`t request and made it your own particular with effortlessness and coarseness and style and agreeability," he advised her, at one bring up out a cloth to touch away tears - as the horde of 18,000 cheered fiercely. 
"Another era sets its sights higher in light of the fact that it has you as a good example. You`ve did right by me. You`ve made the nation glad." 
It was in Chicago that the Obamas met, that their little girls were conceived, and as the president place it in a Facebook post in front of the discourse, "for Michelle and me, Chicago is the place everything began."

"Of all that I have done in my life, I am most glad to be your father," he said - as Malia, wearing highly contrasting, shed a couple tears with her mother`s arm around her. 
"You are savvy, and you are delightful, however more critically, you are benevolent, and you are astute, and you are loaded with enthusiasm," Obama let them know. "Also, you bore the weight of years in the spotlight so effectively." 
Lastly, the 55-year-old president swung to Joe Biden - who alongside his better half Jill he depicted as a moment "family," drawing yet another overwhelming applause for the VP. 
"You were the main choice I made as a chosen one, and it was the best," Obama told Biden. "Not on the grounds that you have been an awesome VP, but since in the deal, I picked up a sibling."
