Eva Longoria was correct when she told the Today Show that there would be no “empty chairs” in her DNC speech.

The Mexican American actress, and co-chair for President Obama’s re-election campaign, delivered a reflective speech about growing up in a middle class household in Texas and working at fast food restaurants to pay for her bachelor’s degree from Texas A&M University. “I got a key to American opportunity because that’s who we are, a nation that rewards ambition with opportunity,” said Eva.

The Desperate Housewives star also compared the Democrat policy to the Republican’s ‘trickle down economics,' "Mitt Romney would raise taxes on middle class families to cut his own and mine, and that's not who we are as a nation and let me tell you why, because the Eva Longoria who worked at Wendy's flipping burgers, she needed a tax break, but the Eva Longoria who works on movie sets does not," said the star while receiving a standing ovation from the crowd.
