Prime-time speakers on other convention events to be broadcast on cable at 7 each night:


Michelle Obama: The potential first lady will reintroduce herself to the nation.

Other highlights: Nancy Pelosi speech, tribute to Ted Kennedy


Hillary Clinton: To be introduced by daughter Chelsea, this is among the senator’s last big opportunities to rally her loyal supporters behind Obama.

Other highlights: David Paterson speech


Joe Biden: Watch for the newly chosen running mate to fill the attack dog role and play up his working-class roots.

Other highlights: Bill Clinton and John Kerry speeches


Barack Obama: He’ll accept the nomination in front of about 75,000 at the Denver Bronco’s football stadium. The pressure is on to top his 2004 convention speech as well as his famous race speech.
