Abstract

Eleanor Roosevelt's address to the 1940 Democratic National Convention transformed a contentious situation into a motive for unified action on the part of the delegates, the president, and the first lady. The speech provides insight into the powerful rhetorical resource of time and insight into one of the central rhetorical strategies that enabled ER's expansion of the first lady role.
