Sen. Hillary Clinton takes the stage tonight and it should be a memorable speech. It\’s been a rocky road since the hotly contested Democratic primaries and some Clinton supporters have resisted the reality that Obama won the nomination. This is a moment for Hillary Clinton to clearly show she wants Obama to win in November and why it is so important to elect a democrat this year. It is in the best interest of all democrats to come together and support Obama and win back the White House or we\’ll continue the Bush legacy and his domestic and foreign policy agendas under John McCain…\”Status Quo\”

Tuesday, August 26: Renewing America���s Promise
Millions of Americans are struggling to get by. The failed policies of the last eight years have betrayed the country���s values and left an economy out of balance. Barack Obama believes a strong economy is unattainable with a weak middle class. Tuesday���s Convention program will feature the voices of Americans who share Barack���s concerns and strongly support his detailed economic plan to grow the economy, create jobs, restore fairness, and expand opportunity.
Senator Hillary Clinton will be the headline prime-time speaker and former Virginia Governor Mark Warner will deliver the keynote address on Tuesday night. Pay Equity pioneer Lilly Ledbetter will also address the Convention on Tuesday.
