CLEVELAND - The 2012 Democratic National Convention wrapped-up Thursday night with Vice President Joe Biden and President Barack Obama giving their acceptance speeches. President Obama spoke for just under 40 minutes, and told the delegates, as well as millions more watching, that his policies have America on the right track toward prosperity. Mr. Obama asked American voters to give him another term to accomplish what he promised four years ago.
