Leach to speak at Dem Convention
In his latest act or heroism or heresy, depending on your party affiliation, former Republican congressman Jim Leach is scheduled to speak tonight at the Democratic National Convention in Denver.
The evening's theme is “One Nation,” and Leach's appearance is meant to indicate that one nation includes Republicans, at least moderate ones.
Leach is scheduled to appear just after the Ted Kennedy tribute (which may, depending on his health, have a "surprise" appearance by the senator himself) and before Missouri Sen. Claire McCaskill. The night's speeches conclude with Michelle Obama.
