Leach to speak at DNC

A source in the Obama campaign says former Iowa Congressman Jim Leach, a Republican from Davenport/Iowa City/Harvard/Princeton, is scheduled to speak Monday night at the Democratic National Convention. For those of you who hadn’t heard, back on August 12 Leach endorsed Obama. 

The theme of Monday night’s convention is "One Nation" and Leach’s role as one of the Republicans now backing Obama fits into that theme, according to the source.
