    Washington Week [#5209H] A day after the Republican National Convention wraps in Tampa, Gwen Ifill travels to Charlotte, North Carolina for a special Election 2012 edition of Washington Week.
    All week a parade of past, present and future Republican party leaders stepped up to the podium at the GOP convention in Tampa to lay out the conservative case for why America needs a new direction and why Mitt Romney is the man for the job.
    The former Massachusetts governor accepted the Republican Party's nomination during a primetime speech Thursday night. Romney was expected to dissect President Obama's record and explain how his administration would "turnaround" America. On Wednesday night Romney's running mate Paul Ryan energized the convention hall with a rousing speech where he talked about the Obama administration's policy failings and how Mitt Romney would not duck the tough issues as commander in chief.
    Next week the political attention shifts to Charlotte where Democrats open their own convention. There President Obama will present his case to America about why he and Vice President Joe Biden deserve a second term and why the Romney-Ryan ticket is the wrong choice for America.
    The president spent this week monitoring Hurricane Isaac and the situation in the storm-ravaged Gulf. He also held rallies in 3 battleground states targeting his message to young people and talking about the important choice voters will have to make in November. In 2008 the college vote helped Obama win the White House.
    Joining Gwen Ifill in Charlotte this week:
    Jeff Zeleny of The New York Times;
    Karen Tumulty of The Washington Post;
    John Harwood of CNBC and The New York Times;
