Bill Clinton DNC 2012: Youtube Video, Text, and Analysis

Former President Bill Clinton will address the Democratic National Convention shortly after 10:00 p.m. EST on Wednesday night, the biggest name speaker to address Democrats on Night 2 of the Convention.

Clinton will follow Elizabeth Warren, who is running for Senate in Massachusetts against Scott Brown. Here is how to watch his speech live, and the exact schedule of his speech.

Here are excerpts from President Clinton's remarks to the DNC Convention on Wednesday:

“In Tampa the Republican argument against the President's re-election was pretty simple:  We left him a total mess, he hasn't finished cleaning it up yet, so fire him and put us back in.

“I like the argument for President Obama's re-election a lot better. He inherited a deeply damaged economy, put a floor under the crash, began the long hard road to recovery, and laid the foundation for a more modern, more well-balanced economy that will produce millions of good new jobs, vibrant new businesses, and lots of new wealth for the innovators.

“The most important question is, what kind of country do you want to live in? If you want a you're-on-your-own, winner-take-all society, you should support the Republican ticket. If you want a country of shared prosperity and shared responsibility -- a we're-all-in-this-together society -- you should vote for Barack Obama and Joe Biden.”

BREAKING 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.
