The blog at the Humphrey School of Public Policy (Univ of Minnesota) published a fascinating comparison of Ann Romney's and Michelle Obama's convention speeches.  Each speech was assigned a grade level following a standard criteria.  Romney's speech was written at a 5th grade level, Obama's at a 12th grade level.  Fascinating.
