Monday night, it was Teddy Kennedy and Michelle Obama. Tonight, the keynote speaker is Virginia's former Governor, Mark Warner. But the star of the show will be Hillary Clinton. How divided are the Democrats? Why haven't the delegates and television audience heard more about John McCain and George Bush? Also, humorist and political commentator Harry Shearer talks about three simultaneous conventions going on before our very eyes.

Tuesday night, Hillary Clinton addresses the convention, and the world will learn how serious the split with Barack Obama supporters really is. The National Convention is supposed to unify Democrats around Obama's presidential candidacy, but media coverage continues to emphasize the continuing tension with Clinton supporters. "To the Point" talks with delegates in both camps. Are the media fanning a controversy that's only skin deep? Keynote speaker Mark Warner says he's not an attack dog. Are the Democrats missing their chance for an offensive against John McCain and George Bush?
