FILE - In htis Sept. 6, 2012, file photo President Barack Obama addresses the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, N.C. A deep obsession with the story of America, who tells it, and who gets to write its next chapter, was a rare piece of common ground that speakers at both the Republican and Democratic conventions managed to share.

Mitt Romney spoke passionately of “the essence of the American experience.” Obama talked emphatically of “the basic bargain at the heart of America's story.” (AP Photo/David Goldman, File) less
