CHARLOTTE, N.C. - President Obama delivered his speech Thursday night to the Democratic Convention and to the nation that he deserves a second term in office.
Delegates at the convention seem to believe things are getting better. Iowa delegate Marty Parrish (D) says he believes 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," Parrish said.
Rhode Island house speaker Gordon Fox (D) said he thinks Obama deserves praise for his presidency over the past four years. "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."
Vice president Joe Biden also delivered is acceptance speech for a second term. Nebraska delegate Amanda Houck (D) 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," Houck said. "I think it's important to keep moving forward in this country, to keep the good work that's he's done."
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.
