It seems like everyone's in awe of Michelle Obama's speech Thursday — even presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

After footage of Obama's speech went viral, Twitter and cable news pundits came together to praise the first lady. So did Clinton, who wrote and personally signed a applauding tweet.

"I'm in awe," Clinton wrote on Twitter.

Obama's speech attracted so much public attention precisely because of how personal it was. The first lady explored how the recent allegations against Trump and his alleged sexual assaults affected her as a woman. 

"It has shaken me to my core in a way that I couldn’t have predicted," Obama said, adding, "Strong men don't need to put down women to make themselves feel powerful."

Though she's not always on the campaign trail, Obama has been a powerful advocate for Clinton throughout this election cycle
