U.S. Senator Dick Durbin of Illinois is going to bat for President Obama, once again. Durbin spoke just before President Obama at the Democratic National Convention last night, and introduced him just as he did at the previous conventions in 2004 and 2008.
He says despite what Republicans are saying, President Obama has put America back on course after the economic downturn.
Durbin says the President's commitment to justice is still worth fighting for. Illinois' senior senator touted accomplishments on saving the auto industry, passing healthcare reform, ending "don't ask, don't tell" for homosexual service members, and making the DREAM Act a reality.
