A portrait of two parties

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:


Democrats: One Nation

Republicans: Service


Democrats: Renewing America’s Promise

Republicans: Reform


Democrats: Securing America’s Future

Republicans: Prosperity


Democrats: Change You Can Believe In

Republicans: Peace
