Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice had more to say than the usual praise for the Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan ticket, she went personal about her life growing up with segregation.

The tragedy of September 11, 2001, the 2008 economic recession and the job stagnation are dragging the American people down, but in Rice's view, America has a way of, "making the impossible seem inevitable."

She spoke about growing up in Alabama in the midst of segregation battles. "A little girl grows up in Jim Crow Birmingham...her parents can't take her to the movie theater or a restaurant," she said. "But make her believe that even though she can't have a hamburger at the Wollworth's lunch counter - she can be President of the United States and she becomes the Secretary of State."

For Rice, it deoesn't matter where you come from, "it matters where you're going." And America is going places if she has a leader that can lead her there.
Rice's message was of hope and the possibility of success despite all odds and that the one to answer the question of, "where does America stand?" is Mitt Romney.

Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan will rebuild the foundation of our strength - the American economy," she said.

Her speech brought the crowd to its feet many times and should make Romney double check his own speech for tonight. He has a lot to live up to.
