Democratic National Convention Starts Monday

If you've got bags under your eyes from watching around the clock coverage of the Olympics, I'm afraid you may have to forgo sleep for a little longer. The Democratic National Convention begins Monday in Denver and the coverage each evening is sure to provide a star-studded spectacle that will feature prominent Democratic leaders and up and coming voices.

Here are just a few of the scheduled speakers:
  • Monday August 25th's headline prime-time speaker will be Michelle Obama.
  • Senator Hillary Clinton will be the headline prime-time speaker on Tuesday August 26th.
  • The headline prime-time speaker on Wednesday August 27th will be Barack Obama's Vice Presidential nominee.
  • On Thursday, August 28th, the DNCC will throw open the doors of the Convention and move to INVESCO Field at Mile High so that more Americans can take part in the fourth night of the Convention as Barack Obama accepts the Democratic nomination.
  • Other speakers will include Bill Clinton, Maya Angelou, Al Sharpton, Al Gore, Jimmy Carter, Teresa Heinz Kerry, Jesse Jackson, Sen. Harry Reid, Elizabeth Edwards, Madeleine Albright, Sen. Joe Biden, Gov. Bill Richardson, Sen. Edward Kennedy and many, many more state Representatives, Senators and party leaders.
Consult your local listing for the exact times and stations where you can catch all the action.
