Democratic Convention Schedule: Bill Clinton Speech Time, Elizabeth Warren, Barney Frank

After Tuesday night's Democratic Party love fest -- featuring the likes of Michelle Obama and Corey Booker -- how could Wednesday night's DNC be any better?

Two words: Bill. Clinton. 

The Democratic National Convention on Wednesday night will see speeches from big-name Democrats like Barney Frank, Elizabeth Warren, Nancy Pelosi, and everyone's favorite I'm-still-here-guys former president, Bill Clinton. The convention will outline the Democrat’s platform and flesh out the themes of Obama’s re-election campaign.

Still, the DNC will get some hefty prime time competition: The NFL has it's opening night tonight, with the defending champions New York Giants facing off against the Dallas Cowboys.

But Bill Clinton knows how to pull a crowd, I can tell you that much. And, after last night, Republicans better hope that Manning and Romo get in a shootout during their game ... because now the big guns are coming out for the Dems.

Also, here's some breaking news Re: Tomorrow's DNC events:  Due to severe Charlotte weather forecasts, President Obama's prime-time Thursday night convention speech will be moved indoors, from the Bank of America Stadium to the Time Warner Cable Arena. The Obama campaign had hoped to relive the glory of the 2008 campaign by drawing 75,000 people to the outdoor stadium speech.

Below are the speech times for the night edition of the DNC.
