With Hillary Clinton confirmed as the Democratic nominee, Day 3 of the Democratic convention will feature a speech by keynote speaker President Barack Obama, who defeated Clinton in the primaries eight years ago. Obama will reportedly defend his own time in office and promote Clinton as the best chance of extending his legacy.

Vice President Joe Biden, who some thought might step up to challenge Clinton for the nomination this year, will also speak, as will former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, who at one point considered a run as an Independent.
