|Clinton steals the show at the Democratic National Convention|

Former President Bill Clinton stuck mostly to economic issues during his speech last night at the 2012 Democratic National Convention. Clinton, along with Massachusetts U.S. Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren, ignited the crowd ahead of the official presidential nomination process.
Clinton's speech, some 48 minutes long, stayed away from social issues like abortion and same-sex marriage rights.
Former Mass. Gov. Mitt Romney and his running-mate Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wi.) were the targets of much of Clinton's speech, which hit back at the GOP ticket by dissecting the Republican positions on health care and taxes.
“In Tampa, the Republican argument against the president's re-election was pretty simple: we left him a total mess, he hasn't cleaned it up fast enough, so fire him and put us back in,” Clinton said during his speech.
Clinton’s speech came the night after First Lady Michelle Obama rallied the convention with a speech that included a reference to her husband’s support of equal marriage rights for same-sex couples.
Tonight's DNC lineup includes Vice President Joe Biden and President Barack Obama, who will officially accept their party's nomination for the fall presidential election.
We're also still waiting to see if Clint Eastwood will make an appearance to yell at a sofa.
