The Demo­crat­ic Na­tion­al Con­ven­tion in Char­lotte, N.C., is com­ing up in early Septem­ber. It was only a few short years ago that the con­ven­tion served as a launch­ing pad for the Sen­ate can­did­ate from Illinois who will now be re­ceiv­ing his second form­al nom­in­a­tion for pres­id­ent. 

Will there be any fu­ture pres­id­ents speak­ing at this year’s con­ven­tion to go along with the roster of pres­id­ents past and present? Check out the speak­ers who have been an­nounced so far. And be sure to see our full con­ven­tion cov­er­age.
