Miami's Manny to speak at the DNC

Miami Mayor Manny Diaz, a Hillary Clinton supporter who had previously declined to endorse Barack Obama, is apparently not persona non grata in the Obama camp.

The Democratic National Committee has announced the mayor, who heads up the U.S. Conference of Mayors, will be among the speakers at the first night of the Democratic convention in Denver.

The night's headliner will be Obama's wife, Michelle Obama. Other speakers that night: former president Jimmy Carter, and Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar.

Diaz, who wasn't immediately available for comment, was also invited to the Republican convention and plans to attend ... so stay tuned.
