This morning he checked out the podium in the United Center, and talked about the difficulties of writing such an important speech.
GOV. EVAN BAYH, KEYNOTE SPEAKER:
But the night will really belong to Hillary Rodham Clinton. The first lady, seen here visiting an art program for Chicago's inner city children, is expected to talk a lot about children in her speech tonight. Some polls show Mrs. Clinton is one of the most unpopular first ladies in modern times.
She has been vilified by Republicans who blame her for everything from Whitewater to the collapse of health care reform.
HILLARY RODHAM CLINTON:
She tested out the sound system today, in preparation for her speech, seen as a chance to reverse negative perceptions of her before a national TV audience.
The theme of tonight's session is the family, a theme reflected on President Clinton's whistle stop tour today. Children reading "The Little Engine That Could" helped President Clinton promote his new idea for education. In Wyandotte, Michigan, the President proposed a national literacy campaign that would recruit 30,000 reading specialists plus thousands more volunteers, to teach America's children to become better readers.
