US First Lady Michelle Obama gestures during an interview after her rehearsal for her speech in the Time Warner Cable Arena September 3, 2012 in Charlotte, North Carolina as preparations for the 2012 Democratic National Convention continue.
Words were spoken at the Democratic National Convention last night, but they weren’t the only ideas communicated. Body language, posture, apparent comfort in the spotlight, personal appearance, and other, less conscious means of expression were broadcast across radio, television, and internet coverage of last night’s events.
