t's showtime for President Obama. This week's Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, N.C., which begins Tuesday, will give Democrats a chance to rebut the charges leveled by Republicans at their convention in Florida last week, and to try and usher voters into the last leg of the 2012 presidential race on the Left's terms. It won't be easy, says Richard Wolf in USA Today. Obama doesn't lack achievements to tout, but he's got an uphill climb explaining "how hope and change feeds a family — and why a first-term president who has yet to reach his goals for job creation deserves another four years to do so." On deck to help him make the case: Michelle Obama, Bill Clinton, Joe Biden, and of course, the president himself.
