Day Two at the Democratic National Convention
Day two of the Democratic National Convention and the speakers are discussing the following topics, healthcare, education, downturns in the economy, the increase in home foreclosures, jobs moving out of the United States and the rising cost of college.
Tonight the Democratic Party platform for this election is being unveiled speech by speech. This is basically the function of these party conventions. Each party gets a chance to showcase what they believe in and what their candidate will do if they are elected.
There are some headliners tonight of interest. The most talked about today in media circles is Senator Hillary Clinton. MSNBC was reporting that as of late this afternoon Senator Clinton speech was still being worked on. After a very tough and long primary this may be a pivotal evening for the political future of Senator Clinton and for the Obama campaign.
