Overall, Obama’s shift in tone and messaging emphasized the failures of the Trump administration and reminded her audience that a second Trump term would mean those shortcomings would continue to have an outsized effect on American life. In underscoring the stakes, she renewed the meaning of the “high road,” redefining it as demanding participation from all American citizens rather than simply grace.

“If we want to keep the possibility of progress alive in our time, if we want to be able to look our children in the eye after this election, we have got to reassert our place in American history,” Obama said.
