Perhaps I'll get "in on the party" when it comes to town in two months from today:

Former President Bill Clinton and Sen. Edward M. Kennedy of Massachusetts
will serve as warmup speakers at the Democratic National Convention in
Boston next month, the Associated Press reported. Clinton is scheduled to
speak July 26, the opening night of the convention, while Kennedy will
follow July 27. The vice presidential pick will speak July 28 and
Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry will close the convention
July 29 with his acceptance speech. Republicans, who will assemble in New
York on Aug. 30, will hear from a trio of speakers that day: former New
York Mayor Rudolph Giuliani, current Mayor Michael Bloomberg and Arizona
Sen. John McCain. First lady Laura Bush, Secretary of Education Rod Paige
and California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger will address the audience the
second night. Vice President Dick Cheney and his wife, Lynne Cheney, will
deliver speeches Sept. 1, as will Democratic Sen. Zell Miller of Georgia.
On the final evening, New York Gov. George Pataki will introduce President
Bush, who will close the convention with his acceptance speech.
