It's Bill Clinton night at the Democratic National Convention. The popular former president gives the nomination speech for President Barack Obama.
What to expect from Clinton? A tell-it-like-it-is, conversational tense and tone aimed at helping Obama energize convention delegates, and, more importantly for the president, the voters watching from home — especially the undecided voters.
Clinton's message: Stay the course. Obama's policies have put the economy on a path to recovery. That 2008-style hope is alive in 2012.
Other convention speakers to watch out for on Wednesday include U.S. Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren; women's rights activist Sandra Fluke (Will Rush Limbaugh be watching?); House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi; and Rep. Barney Frank.
While the Democrats are revving up in Charlotte, Ann Romney will hold a "Women for Mitt Rally" in Findlay, Ohio, and Paul Ryan will attend a "Victory Rally" in Adel, Iowa.
And then there is this: The former president isn't the only Clinton at the Charlotte convention. Chelsea Clinton, an NBC special correspondent, will moderate a "Conversations with the Next Generation" town hall hosted by the National Journal and The Atlantic.
