One down, one to go. Senator Barack Obama accepted the Democratic Party's nomination to be President last night - next week, John McCain takes the stage.
Obama's historic speech was made before a football stadium full of suppporters, and a Prime-Time audience - on the anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr's "I Have a dream" speech. But Obama only made a passing reference to Dr. King - focusing on sharp criticism of Senator McCain and the Republican Party - and presenting a rebuttal of charges made against him.
Today, Where We Live, Political analyst Renny Fulco from Trinity College joins us to talk about the speech, and it's impact on the race. And, we'll look ahead to next week's Republican convention.
We'd like you to join us to talk politics - whether you're a Democrat or a Republican, independent or undecided, join the conversation.
