With the upcoming presidential election getting closer, the Democratic party is holding nothing back when it comes to their convention. Political conventions have long been known as more just a gathering for their nominees, but rather they tend to be “bastions of booze-and-schmooze infused celebrations” and this years’ won’t be any different. According to the Washington Post, the Democratic National Convention, held in Denver on August 25th, will feature Kanye West, Wyclef Jean and N.E.R.D. as performers.
Other celebrities expected to be at the convention include Ben Affleck, Scarlett Johansson, Warren Beatty, Annette Bening, Forrest Whitaker, Maggie Gyllenhaal (co-star of Heath Ledger in the new Bat Man movie, 'The Dark Knight'), Cheryl Hines (of the great HBO show 'Curb Your Enthusiasm') and Ed Norton.
