Former Michigan Gov. Jennifer Granholm knows how to rev up a crowd.

Granholm energized the delegates at the Democratic National Convention Thursday evening with a sharp-tongued speech about President Obama's decision to bail out automakers General Motors and Chrysler and Mitt Romney's opposition to the plan.

Granholm, now a Current TV host, ripped into Romney's California home redesign, saying, "Siure, Mitt Romney loves our lakes and trees. He loves our cars so much, they have their own elevator. But the people who design, build, and sell those cars? Well, 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.
