Obama to Deliver University of Michigan Commencement Speech

Friday, April 30, 2010

President Obama will deliver the commencement speech at the University of Michigan tomorrow. The university expects a majority of the students to attend along with 80,000 friends and family members. And as Jake Smilovitz, editor in chief of the student-run paper, tells us that expectations run high, considering the school's history of ground-breaking presidential speeches. Lyndon Johnson, George H.W. Bush, and Bill Clinton, and John F. Kennedy have all taken the stage at U of M.
