Barack Obama accepts Democratic nomination

In a 40 minute speech in Charlotte, North Carolina, President Barack Obama accepted the Democratic Party's nomination.

The president's speech concluded a night that featured a much different John Kerry from what people saw in 2004.

Former Michigan Governor Jennifer Granholm addressed the crowd and she delivered an energizing and hard-hitting speech, including the line: "In Romney's world, the cars get the elevator and the workers get the shaft."

Other prominent speakers this evening included Carolina Kennedy, Montana Governor Brian Schweitzer, and former Florida Governor Charlie Crist.
