The 2008 Democratic National Convention (DNC) was held in Denver, CO on August 25-28.
The Democratic Party nominated then Senator Barack Obama (Illinios) as their candidate
for President and Senator Joe Biden (Delaware) as his potential Vice President. Obama
accepted their nomination for candidacy and later won the Presidential election, becoming
the first African American President of the United States.
