White House aide praises Obama despite mic glitch

Mona Sutphen, Clyde Williams' wife, a Milwaukee native and the White House deputy political director, praised her boss for his accomplishments despite inheriting "an economy that was completely off the rails" and a government that was "completely rudderless."

"He never wavered from his view that health care reform was a necessity in this country," Sutphen said of President Obama. "He was willing to put everything on the line in order to achieve that."

"Already this law is delivering amazing benefits to the American people."

Sutphen's microphone cut out in the middle of her speech to delegates. After attempts at repairing the mic were initially unsuccessful, she continued to deliver her speech -- without amplification -- to delegates in the front rows to the occaisional smattering of applause.

The mic was eventually repaired, with Sutphen declaring "I'm back!"

"What's very essential to the president's success is ensuring we have partners ... on the state and local level," Sutphen continued. "We really just can't afford a bunch of naysayers who want to just sit on the sidelines."
