Former Michigan governor Jennifer Granholm's high-powered, fist-pumping speech to the Democratic convention Thursday night has some calling her the "breakout star" of the evening.

It also has some, like Allahpundit, comparing Granholm to “a pro wrestler emoting during a pre-match interview.” He adds, "It’s not quite Dean-oesque, but it’s close."

"America, let's rev our engines!" Granholm said. "In your car and on your ballot, the 'D' is for drive forward, and the 'R' is for reverse. And in this election, we're driving forward, not back. Let's reelect our great president, Barack Obama!"
