(Newser) – Michelle Obama will take center stage the first night of the Democratic National Convention, the Denver Post reports, while Hillary Clinton will headline the next, speaking on the 88th anniversary of US women’s suffrage. “This year's Democratic Convention is the story of people from across the country who believe it is time for change,” said Kansas Gov. Kathleen Sebelius, a convention co-chair.

Technology will bring “voices of the people” to the convention, “just as the Obama campaign uses the energy of grassroots volunteers combined with state-of-the-art technology to bring people into their campaign” Sebelius said in a statement. Bill Clinton will reportedly speak on Wednesday, the convention's third night, but Sebelius' release did not address that. The event begins August 25.
