The Democratic Convention Starts Today

And if you would like to take a look at the schedule and speakers who will be appearing at the convention in Philly, here you go!

I'm especially excited to see Anastasia Somoza speak, who is a friend of a friend, and also to see First Lady Michelle Obama!

But I'm sure all the speeches are going to be great, not only because the Democratic convention are typically full of amazing speakers, many of whom will shape and define the party for years to come (remember when most of us "first met" President Barack Obama as a Democratic convention speaker?!), but also because, unlike the Republican convention, where lots of Republicans wouldn't have spoken if you'd paid them in solid gold busts of Ronald Reagan, Democrats are very excited to show up for and participate in the historic nomination of Hillary Clinton!

They surely had a huge selection of willing and eager speakers from whom to choose, as opposed to having to scrape a bunch of Scott Baios from the bottom of the bin.

Let's do this!
