DNCC Reveals Headline Speakers

DNCCThe Democratic National Convention Committee released the formal structure and headline speakers for this month’s gathering today.

“Through narrative storytelling utilizing innovative technology, Hillary Clinton’s vision that we are stronger together will come into strong focus for the American people,” they write. “A vision that America is at its best when we work together to solve our problems. We are stronger together when we build an economy that works for everyone, not just those at the top. We’re stronger when we work with our allies around the world to keep us safe at home. And we’re stronger when we respect each other and really listen to each other – when we lift each other up instead of tearing each other down.”

    If Trump has a 10@ edge when asked who is a better job creator then why not show this chart which proves every dem admin has created more jobs for the past 80 years. Nothing is more convincing than a chart, but I have never seen anyone use this.

  2. This forJim and the rest of Haters Please for Once can we All Get Along? I know it’s hard that Mr.Sanders did not win and it was not Rigged because Ms Clinton GOT 4,000,000+VOTES MORE THAN Mr Sanders so did those people have a Gun to their head and Told who to vote for? If you write Mr Sanders name in You Know What You Just Did hell make it Easy on you and others don’t waste your and others Time/Votes just Vote for Trump because writing in ONLY give it to Trump. Please think about it before you go to do your Duty. Thank you anyway!!THINK FIRST!!

  3. I love this line up. So very powerful! Democrats working together. Moving America forward together. We work hand in hand. It is about peace, loving your neighbor and progress.

    I am so proud of the work that Hillary Clinton and the DNC are doing. After watching the RNC, I was scared. I am still scared. But this convention and the Democratic party brings me hope that all is not lost.

    That there are more people who care about uniting Americans and building our country than hating each other, tearing it down and building a wall around the mess that is left.

    I am proud to be an American. I am proud to be a Texan. But my pride was fading. Texas is destroying itself. But with the Democrats, I pray, I will be proud to be a Texan once more.

    Hillary Clinton is so important to lead us into progress. But the down ticket is also very important. Don’t let what happened in Texas happen to your state. Vote. Let’s all be proud!

  4. I know the republicans will be taking notes! To bad they went first, then they could have plagiarized the whole convention. Set back and witness a first class event with substance!

  5. Write in Bernie Sanders…We have to start to make a stand!! No More Elites…

  6. Hillary speaking about bringing families together, a champion for women & children? That’s rich! All over the middle east, she has taken money from foreign govts and awarded them weapons deals through her state dept. Innocent civilians in these places have been murdered thanks to her greed! Look at what she did to the families in Honduras. Go look at her documents on wikileaks, very telling

  7. Philadelphian:

    You could have just written “I voted for Bernie Sanders and I hate Hillary Clinton with a burning hatred for all things Clinton, even when there’s no evidence of it.”

    Hillary wants her daughter to speak for her, and that’s evidence she’s soft of corruption and doesn’t want to win the election? Do you even hear yourself talk?

  8. Trump had Scott Baio last night!! Can Hillary quickly get The Professor from Gilligan’s Island? Maybe David Hasselhoff?

  9. There’s plenty of smart, intelligent women in the world, but that’s not enough to merit such a high-profile speaking spot on the most important night of the convention. It’s ridiculous to claim that Chelsea Clinton is ANYWHERE near as accomplished as the governors, senators, and leaders that filled those shoes before her.

    Chelsea Clinton is no Barack Obama, Ann Richards, or Mario Cuomo.

  10. Philadelphian – did you stop to think that Chelsea is a smart, intelligent woman that has every right to speak for her mother. Any mother would be proud to have their daughter as accomplished as Chelsea to speak on her behalf. I say to Hillary and the Democrats “Way to go”. Can’t wait to hear her speak!

  11. Just laughing at how a Philadelphian could be decrying nepotism. Watch how many Trump children are on stage. I’d say in govt posts, too, but Trump will never get that far.

  12. Does Hillary realize what the optics are of giving Chelsea the second most important speaking slot on the last night?

    It just furthers the appearance of Clinton soft corruption: Of all people in the Democratic Party, Chelsea certainly isn’t the most qualified (or at all qualified) for that slot; the nepotism in naked and apparent. Either Hillary, even with so much at stake, doesn’t care or is so corrupt herself that she’s blind to it.

    I’m voting for her (because there is no other choice) but it’s so disappointing – and sickening – that with the election and even the nation’s fate on the line, Hillary doesn’t make winning the election the priority in everything she does. If that was the priority, clearly she would have chosen someone else rather than use the DNC to promote her daughter’s political career.
