THE HILLARY CONVENTION CON: Jonah Goldberg and Kathryn Jean Lopez speculate that of course Hillary’s going to speak at the Democratic National Convention later this month, and her absence from the rostrum–for the moment–is merely a way to build some pre-convention buzz.

UPDATE: AP reports, “Kerry Asks Sen. Clinton to Speak at DNC“.
Jim Geraghty of NRO’s “Kerry Spot” writes:

What’s really surprising about this is that this suggests this wasn’t part of an orchestrated effort to have Hillary make a “surprise” appearance, that it really was a glaring oversight by Kerry, his campaign, and convention organizers. How do you schedule a convention lineup and leave out the party’s most popular woman?
