2012 DNC Convention: Wednesday Night Speeches



Here are the videos I've been able to find of the speeches that took place during last night's DNC Convention. The DNC apparently doesn't have a system or plan for processing the videos in a timely manner, so I had to use videos uploaded by other people and organizations. The DNC also has not posted the full texts of all their speakers on their website in a handy place, so I have decided not to search the Internet for other sources for the texts. If you want the texts, you'll have to search for yourself.

Some, but not all, can be found on the DNC Convention website



**update** I've found a two part video from ABC News of the events from last night. So, the speeches and parts of the convention that haven't been uploaded by the DNC or others are probably in these two videos:
