2012 Democratic National Convention
The Republican National Convention has come and gone and now it’s the Democrats turn. The Democratic National Convention is set to take place this week live from Charlotte, North Carolina. The Democratic National Convention dates are September 4th through September 6th at the Time Warner Cable Arena and the Bank of America Stadium. Only the final night will be held at the Bank of America Stadium, home of the Carolina Panthers.
The start 2012 DNC will bring a lot of action to the city of Charlotte and with North Carolina being a battle state, hopefully give Obama a boost. Democrats are pulling out all of the stops this year and tapping some big name celebrities to speak and perform. In addition to the celebrity appearances the keynote speaker for the Democratic National Convention is Julian Castro. Other notable speakers for the 2012 DNC are Elizabeth Warren, Martin O’Malley, Michelle Obama, Caroline Kennedy, Tim Kaine, Sandra Fluke, Rahm Emanuel, Charlie Crist, Bill Clinton, Lincoln Chafee, Cory Booker, Joe Biden and of course President Barack Obama.
As always, the Democratic National Convention will officially nominate the Democratic party’s choice for President and Vice President. Earlier this year, President Barack Obama won the Maryland and District of Columbia primaries, giving him more than the required 2,778 delegates to secure the presidential nomination. He has once again chosen Vice President Joe Biden as his vice presidential running mate in his re-election bid.
As mentioned above, last week the Republicans held their convention and it sure was interesting. The highlights of the 2012 Republican National Convention were – Ann Romney showing the softer side and introduced her husband Mitt to America. Condoleeza Rice delivering a timeless speech that has both parties still talking about it. Paul Ryan taking some serious swings at the Obama administration and last but not least Mitt Romney firing up the Republican party and showing America what a Romney administration would look like. Oh and how could I forget Clint Eastwood’s speech in which he talked to a chair. Yes, he talked to a chair.
