Michelle kicks it off tonight…

I’m looking forward to it. Michelle Obama speaks in the 10 – 11 PM slot, preceded by the Keynote Speaker, Julián Castro, Mayor of San Antonio, Texas.

The Convention opens at 5:00 PM when Chair of the Democratic National Committee, Debbie Wasserman Schultz,  brings down the gavel. Harry Reid, Rahm Emanuel, Joseph Kennedy III (one of several in the Kennedy family honoring the late Ted Kennedy) and Kal Penn, among others, speak tonight.

One of the things I like about Obama and the Democrats that I didn’t see with Romney and the Republicans: they have a sense of humor.

Kal Penn will be hosting live coverage of the convention on BarackObama.com.

Quotes of the Day – Diversity of the Democratic National Convention

Remember last week when the Republicans put up black, woman, hispanic and other speakers (in front of the virtually all white audience) and said their convention represented a much more diverse America than the Democrats ever could? Well, they ought to take a look at a convention where the speakers AND the conventioneers are made up out of a great mix of Americans.

“This is truly the most diverse, the most open, the most transparent, the most exciting convention we’re about to undertake. It is big, it is bold, it is beautiful, it is America.”

– Alice Germond, Democratic National Committee Secretary

Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa

“We’re doing things a little different than the Republicans. A lot more delegates, Latino delegates, African Americans, women. In addition to having very prominent roles like the keynote speaker, and in my case chairing the convention, you’ll also see that our platform reflects our values.

“The face of our party will reflect the values of our party”

– Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, Convention Chairman

Makes me proud to be a Democrat.
