The Democratic National Convention reaches its climax tonight with President Obama's acceptance speech.

He says he will share what he calls his "vision for the future".

It's up to the president to make his own case for his reelection, despite a slow economic recovery that Republicans charge is his fault.

"My main goal is, I think, to communicate to the American people how we can move forward and create an economy where middle class families, if they're working hard and acting responsibly, they've got a shot again," he says.

In New Hampshire, Mitt Romney said he won't watch the president make new promises.

"I think he wants a promises reset. We want a report on the promises he made," Romney said.

Vice President Biden warms up the Democrats who will get into Time Warner Arena.

It'll be standing room only for the president after severe weather forced a move from the much larger Bank of America Stadium.

Delegates say they're confident President Obama will do what he's done before: Deliver a speech that fires them up and wins over swing voters.
