Though Hurricane Isaac successfully delayed the official start of the Republican National Convention in Tampa on Monday, the spirit and excitement of the delegates attending the convention has not been dampened.

Some Republicans already may be thinking a couple of years beyond the event.

Also thinking ahead are Illinois Democrats, as they prepare for the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, N.C.
