CHARLOTTE, N.C. - (AP) - Former president Bill Clinton speaks to the Democratic National Convention tonight and introduces President Barack Obama's name for nomination.

This year's address will be freed of the drama surrounding Clinton's convention speech four years ago, when his wife, Hillary Rodham Clinton, had just lost to Obama in a bruising primary battle littered with hard feelings.

Last night, Michelle Obama used her convention speech to frame her husband as a president who knows the struggles of everyday Americans because he endured them himself. She recalled that Barack Obama drove a rust-bucket on early dates and once rescued a rescued coffee table from the trash.

The first lady also told delegates that she had "seen firsthand that being president doesn't change who you are, it reveals who you are."
