President Barack Obama is speaking at the Democratic National Convention 2012 in Charlotte, North Carolina tonight.

He was introduced by First Lady Michelle Obama to whom he gave a long kiss. Obama has accepted the nomination to the Presidential Candidacy.

"But when all is said and done - when you pick up that ballot to vote - you will face the clearest choice of any time in a generation. Over the next few years, big decisions will be made in Washington, on jobs and the economy; taxes and deficits; energy and education; war and peace - decisions that will have a huge impact on our lives and our children's lives for decades to come," Obama said.
