A full-out effort to elect the next U.S. president.

From one convention to the next, amid claims and allegations of plagiarism, lies and improprieties, U.S. presidential nominees bring their speeches, party members to convince Americans their party is better to hold the highest political office.

"I'm more optimistic about the future of America than ever before", said President Obama Wednesday night during the Democratic National Convention where he lauded the record of presidential nominee Hillary Clinton.

"And for four years, I had a front-row seat to her intelligence, her judgment, and her discipline.  I came to realize that her unbelievable work ethic wasn’t for praise or attention – that she was in this for everyone who needs a champion.  I understood that after all these years, she has never forgotten just who she’s fighting for."

While Clinton made a surprise appearance on stage after the president's remarks, she will formally accept the Democratic nomination Thursday night during the final evening of the convention in Philadelphia.
