Wednesday, August 27 - Securing America's Future.
Barack Obama offers a new, tough foreign policy that is neither Republican nor Democratic, but is a strong, smart American foreign policy to make our
country more secure and advance our interests in the world. Wednesday night's Convention program will feature the voices of Americans who share
Barack's vision of making America stronger and safer.
The headline prime-time speaker on Wednesday will be Barack Obama's Vice Presidential Nominee.

those who give so much to secure our nation's future - veterans, active duty military and their families.
Thursday, August 28 - Change You Can Believe In.
On Thursday night, the DNCC will throw open the doors of the Convention and move to INVESCO Field at Mile High so that more Americans can be a part of
the fourth night of the Convention as Barack Obama accepts the Democratic nomination. Obama will communicate the urgency of the moment, highlight the
struggles Americans are facing and call on Americans to come together to change the course of our nation.
Colorado Governor Bill Ritter, Jr. will address the Convention on Thursday night.
Additional details of the program to precede Barack Obama's acceptance speech will be announced later this week.
