Dem. Women: Ready to Move Forward

The song "I'm Every Woman" fills the convention stadium as Nancy Pelosi and the House of Representatives' Democratic women take the stage. Pelosi, the former House Speaker, introduces herself--noting that her grandchildren call her "Mimi"--before declaring "the Democratic women of the House are ready to join President Barack Obama to move America forward." One by one, she and the rest of the ladies on stage take turns at the podium, pointing to the most important issues facing women and reiterating that "the Democratic women of the House are ready to move forward."
