Democratic Nomination Acceptance Watch Party

Many of us met at the Dodici Coffee Shop on the evening of the final day of the 2012 Democratic Convention to hear the acceptance speech of current incumbent and 2012 Nominee, Barack Obama.

We had a wonderful opportunity to get together with both long time Democratic activists and a few newcomers. The evening included a number speakers including Vice-President and 2012 Nominee, Joe Biden.

Barack Obama gave a great speech that outlined his plans for his second term and our future.
