To a nation short on job security, President Barack Obama has his night to protect his own.
Obama's speech at the Democratic National Convention on Thursday will be about promises he says he kept, and the hope he wants to stir once more.
He will take people back to the start of his presidency to make a case why their lives are better, but his bigger imperative is to sell himself as better for middle-class America than Republican Candidate Mitt Romney.
On Wednesday, it was former President Bill Clinton who came out swinging on Obama's behalf.
Key Democratic Party insiders said that Obama will be building on the momentum laid out by the 42nd President who took the GOP to task for creating the country's economic mess.
Ohio delegates told WBNS-10TV that they want to hear what Obama will do if re-elected.
"The last couple of nights, it seems every other word was Ohio. So, I really think it would be good if he could talk about college and talk about how to get a lot of college graduates to work. I'm excited for that," Jake Young, Ohio delegate.
Tei Street is a delegate representing District 12. She said it's critical that Obama articulates what he has done to turn around the economy.
"I also think it's important to continually remind people we inherited a mess, and so I want him to tell us how we go forward from here and what we should expect in the next four years," said Street.
Obama told supporters he regrets having to move his acceptance speech indoors, but said he couldn't risk their safety given the possibility of severe weather.
Obama told supporters he wouldn't "let a little thunder and lightning get us down."
