Among those speaking are Newark, New Jersey Mayor Cory Booker; San Antonio, Texas Mayor Julian Castro, who is giving the keynote address; and Maryland Governor Martin O’Malley.

Also speaking are former Florida Congressman Robert Wexler; Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid; Independent Rhode Island Governor Lincoln Chafee, a former Republican; Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel, former Chief of Staff to President Obama; Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick; Lilly Ledbetter, the woman who is mentioned as the name on the Equal Pay Act for women; the brother of Michelle Obama and the sister of President Obama; and finally, the distinguished First Lady herself!

It will be an exciting evening for Democrats, and Independents alike!

    Hello Professor,
    I just spent a long holiday weekend with my family and returned back to Columbus late last night. Had a great time.

    I watched a little bit of the convention tonight too and I cannot see how any critical and clear thinking human being cannot agree with the platform I heard tonight.

    So to conclude with my choice of the potential future Democratic Presidential contenders; I have to go with my own Maryland Governor Martin O’Malley.

    As you know I co-write on a blog started by a retired History Professor in Toledo, OH along with another. He is a lawyer in England but got his law degree from the University of Maryland…..where Martin O’Malley was a classmate of his. O’Malley is a good of man as any who is in line for the next National Challenge.

    I have already, a number of times, pointed out that Martin O’Malley is a great choice to consider for President in 2016. If you look back, I mentioned this several times, so absolutely agree with you!
