Updated: 09/06/2012 - The Democratic National Convention chair Debbie Schultz is steering a tightly run ship. Every speaker is on message. Forward. Being a woman is no longer a pre-existing condition. Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act. Health care reform. Forward. Marry who you love. Women make their own choices. Forward. Strengthen the middle class. Forward. This is the message the Obama campaign wants Americans to hear. And so far, every speaker has stayed on message.
