CHARLOTTE, N.C. (WOOD) - Former Michigan Gov. Jennifer Granholm knows how to rev up a crowd.
She spoke Thursday night at the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, N.C. Thursday night.
Granholm energized the delegates with a sharp-tongued speech about President Barack Obama's decision to bail out automakers General Motors and Chrysler, and Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney's opposition to the plan.

Granholm, now a Current TV host, ripped into Romney's California home redesign, saying, "in Romney's world, the cars get the elevator, the workers get the shaft."
Fist-pumping her arms and waving them over her head, Granholm brought delegations from Colorado, Virginia, North Carolina and more to their feet as she recited the number of jobs saved in their states by the bailout.
By her speech's end, her face and neck were crimson from shouting.
"America, let's rev our engines!" Granholm said as the crowd started chanting, "USA!"
