On tomorrow's show, we'll examine how President Obama walked the fine line between hope and reality in his convention speech. We'll review the evolution of the Democratic Party's platform from 2004 to 2012, and discuss the Democrats' embrace of the culture wars. Plus, we'll delve into the political significance of Michelle Obama's description of herself as "mom-in-chief" in her convention speech, and the contested political terrain of motherhood.
