Hillary Clinton To Speak On 2nd Night In Denver

HONOLULU (AP) — The plan is for Hillary Clinton to headline her own night at the Democratic National Convention later this month.

The announcement was made by Barack Obama’s campaign in Hawaii, where Obama is vacationing. It’s a nod to Clinton’s strong second-place showing.

The former first lady will speak on the second night, Tuesday, August 26th, the 88th anniversary of American women’s right to vote.

Advisers to the New York senator say she’ll almost certainly not ask to have her name placed in formal nomination.

Michelle Obama will speak on the opening night on August 25th, while the yet-to-be-named vice-presidential pick will speak on the third. Democratic officials say Bill Clinton is also scheduled to speak that night.

Barack Obama will speak on the fourth and final night as the convention moves outside to Invesco Field at Mile High stadium. It will coincide with the 45th anniversary of Martin Luther King’s “I Have a Dream” speech.
