PHILADELPHIA — First lady Michelle Obama offered a glowing endorsement of presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, but the media, in return, heralded Obama.

"This and every election is about who will have the power to shape our children for the next four to eight years of their lives," Obama said as she spoke from the Wells Fargo Arena in Philadelphia. "There is only one person I trust with that responsibility. Only one person I believe is truly qualified to be president of the United States, and that is Hillary Clinton."

But, while Obama said she does want a president who is not "boiled down to 140 characters," she did receiving glowing praise from the media — on Twitter.

Obama sought to throw her weight behind Clinton, despite any discord among the party, as she said, "I'm with her."
