Patrick's speech, about an hour before first lady Michelle Obama, sought to rally the party faithful at the Democratic National Convention. Patrick has been performing a similar role in front of Democratic groups throughout the country, energizing party activists, increasing his visibility, and raising money for his political action committee. Patrick also appeared on cable news Tuesday morning and addressed the state delegation, making a similar argument against Romney. But Tuesday night was an opportunity to showcase his close-up critique of Romney to a larger audience.
