In 2008, I had a life-changing experience. I rejoiced with my fellow Americans as we watched then-Senator Barack Obama accept our nomination for President of the United States. The energy was electrifying and moving.

You can experience the same thing at the 2012 convention in Charlotte. Sign up now to get your free credential for the convention, and join me in watching President Obama deliver his acceptance speech -- the one that will kick of the last leg of this urgent campaign -- in person.

Here's what happened in 2008: In a packed stadium, my fellow Democrats and I shared an incredibly personal and intimate experience. Before our very eyes, our hearts and hopes soaring, we watched the course of history change. We saw our beautiful country come closer to fully manifesting the promises of our Republic. We were there to help usher in a renewal of our most cherished values: Fairness. The dignity of hard work. The power and integrity of our middle class. The proud can-do American spirit. The elbow-grease willingness to tackle our most intractable problems, and the confidence that we could, and would, steer our great country back on track. It was one of the highlights of my life.

I've been working hard for President Obama since 2007, because he's been working hard for Americans. I'll be at the convention, as an at-large delegate for Tennessee, and as an American who loves her country and wants our president to have four more years to build on his outstanding work. I am so proud of what he's accomplished. He saved the auto industry -- and GM and Chrysler have repaid their outstanding government loans years ahead of schedule. He's helped provide access to affordable health care to millions of Americans who might otherwise have gone uninsured, and put our economy on a path back to recovery.

For women and girls, he's made unparalleled progress -- signing the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act to help women fight for equal pay for equal work, expanding access to preventive health care and contraception, and making a commitment to preventing violence against women.

I have so much excitement and so much hope for what President Obama can do for our country with another term.

I'm counting the days until the convention. I've signed up to do whatever I can to help out the campaign, and I'm not alone. Tens of thousands of people will be there in Charlotte -- people like you who have been pitching in what they can, volunteering their time and investing their energy in re-electing President Obama.

The convention will be an opportunity for us to celebrate that work, our hope, and our commitment to progress, together. It'll also be a great reminder of why we're all in this. If you can make it, I know you'll leave with the same kinds of powerful memories and stories that I have. You'll be able to say, for the rest of your life, "I was there!"

When you sign up today, an organizer will get in touch with more information about the logistics. I encourage you to make travel and accommodation plans right away. Don't miss out on this special moment.
