    The parties' national conventions -- Dems, two weeks from now in Denver; GOPs, three weeks from now in St. Paul -- are the most sustained chance they'll have before Election Day to woo viewers at home.



    So they choose a theme each night that they hope, in toto, will present a face that both tickles their core supporters and woos swing voters.



    The Democratic National Convention Committee announced its themes today, and a little bird filled in the tentative Republican themes:



    MONDAY



    Democrats: One Nation



    Republicans: Service



    TUESDAY



    Democrats: Renewing America’s Promise



    Republicans: Reform



    WEDNESDAY



    Democrats: Securing America’s Future



    Republicans: Prosperity



    THURSDAY



    Democrats: Change You Can Believe In



    Republicans: Peace
