Although the major speech on Wednesday will be that of vice presidential nominee Sen. Joe Biden, many in the press corps and around the country will be focused on the words of another Clinton, former President Bill Clinton, who addresses delegates earlier in the evening.
The speech marks another moment in the ongoing discuss that many pundits have continued to harp on, the role of the powerful Clinton family and their supporters in the future direction of the Democratic Party. Senior Correspondent Judy Woodruff reports on what is known and unknown about tonight’s address.
“We do not know what he is going to say,” Woodruff said. “These are going to be Bill Clinton’s word and so whether he uses his time, how much of that time is used to talk about his two terms as president, his wife, where he sees the country going and how much of it is talking about Barack Obama, the challenge coming with John McCain, we have to wait and see. We really don’t know. People are saying, people who have been watching this convention closely really don’t know what Bill Clinton is going to do.”
