The Republican National Convention (RNC)

Ann Romney, wife of Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney, left, sits with Janna Ryan, wife of Republican vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan, as she holds her yawning son Sam Ryan at the Republican National Convention (RNC) in Tampa, Florida, on Aug. 29, 2012. Representative Paul Ryan takes the stage tonight to address the RNC with a dual mission: to provide a spark, along with his big ideas about cutting the budget, to energize the party's base.
