President Obama, making his case to the Democratic Convention and to the nation that he deserves a second term in office. Delegates here believe things are getting better, that Mr. Obama just needs more time
"I think the economy's going to take a little longer to correct and fix. And I think he deserves a second term to get out there and get it done," said (D) Iowa Delegate, Mary Parrish.
"Oh I think from where he started his administration in terms of the economy, and where we come from, I'd give him high praise on dealing with that," said (D) House Speaker Gordon Fox, Rhode Island.
Vice President Biden also delivered is acceptance speech for a second term. Delegates say the President has accomplished a lot in one term.
"I support what he's done for health care reform in the United States. What he's done for the economy. How he's protected all citizens rights. And I think it's important to keep moving forward in this country, to keep the good work that's he's done," said (D) Nebraska Delegate, Amanda Houck.
Delegates hope the rousing nomination speech by former President Clinton Wednesday night will sway undecided voters in key toss up states such as Iowa, Florida and North Carolina.
And so the political conventions are history and it's on to the Fall campaign. Highlight will include 3 presidential debates; one vice-presidential debate; and plenty of television ads.
