Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick used his personal story to emphasize the importance of the "American dream" as he addressed convention delegates. In three years, Gov. Patrick has gone from being a political unknown to taking a prime speaking slot at the DNC between the keynote and Senator Hillary Clinton's remarks.

Gov. Patrick's speech highlighted Senator Barack Obama's domestic agenda where it overlaps with his own objectives for Massachusetts, focusing on education, green jobs, biotechnology, and the environment.
