|Have something to tell us at The Call? Drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll post it to our blog.|
The Democratic National Convention comes to a close today with President Obama laying out the case for his re-election. It brings to a close two weeks of speeches and politics from both parties. Did they make a difference to you? Your thoughts below.
On the final night of the Democratic National Convention, President Obama will accept his party's nomination and outline his vision for America for the next four years. Obama's address in Charlotte, North Carolina will bring the DNC to a close.
Democrats sought to win over Americans this week by defending President Obama's handling of economic and social issues. Speeches from former President Bill Clinton and First Lady Michelle Obama made headlines across the country. Will it make a difference?
What do you hope to hear from President Obama tonight? What were the highs and lows of the primetime speeches this week? How will you remember the 2012 Democratic National Convention? Did it influence your vote?

Michelle Obama and Bill Clinton clearly spelled out the difference in the philosophy towards governing of the two parties, in the case of the democrats that vision is inclusionary in all aspects of social as well as economic justice and fairness.
Their speeches didn't make a bit of difference. This Clinton has his signature on many things that he should be called upon for because he is part of the problem.
They should all dispense with the constant lies.
Obama and Michelle seem to have these visions about the next four years.
When does this happen? Is it when they are boarding the Jets or landing.
Broken promises for sure.
For this president to tell us the same things he did when he was running the first time is just not to be believed at all.
They have been on a vacation since the beginning of his administration.
i would like to hear him say he was quiting and transfer all his delegates to Hilary
One word describes DNC, the new Comedy Network show. And that word is "bloviation.
"To bloviate is to speak loudly, verbosely, and at great length, without saying much." That pretty much describes Clinton and Michelle Obama's act.
It will also describe Joe "Buffon" Biden's and Barack's act tonight.
I am so proud to be a Democrat..proud of what we stand for..I'm sorry for people like Roy who feel marrying someone you love is a disgrace. That's a shame.
Obama is a gem. He keeps going after what's important to people....those people that don't think health care is important, have probably been fortunate enough to have never needed it or been denied health care.
I love Obama.
bill clinton said it all. It comes down to what kind of country we want to live in - the "you're on your own" country envisioned by Republicans, where the wealthy and the corporations rule and the working people pay and suffer, or the "we're all in this together" philosophy, which includes a safety net for the elderly, the young, the disabled and ordinary folk. to me the choice is clear.
Bill Clinton was inspiring last night. There is a strange wave of conservatism taking place in this country.
He gave me hope that America could set an example for the rest of the world.
Hillary Clinton for President !
I have found that President Obama has acted with professionalism in trying to solve problems in the face of many instances of immaturity by the Republican Congress. As a reference, there are many examples of this behavior by Senator Minority leader Mitch McConnell and the Congressman from South Carolina Jim DeMint of "you lie" fame.
I found it very telling that for the Democratic Convention they had former President Clinton in a featured role, yet there wasn't even a mention of the most recent Republican President George W. Bush at the Republican Convention. Was he even invited to go to Tampa? Former President Clinton did compliment former Presidents George W. and George H.W. Bush for aid work to Africa and charitable work in Haiti and Asia last night though.
