The Democratic National Convention will be held August 25-28, and we bet a lot of people would love to be there whether they support presumptive nominee Barack Obama or not. And stars are no exception: Gossips are predicting an unprecedented level of celeb sightings next week in Denver.
For some, the stop in Colorado is just another day on the job: Ed Norton has been working on a documentary about Obama, so of course he'll be there armed with a camera, and Ben Affleck will be joining a panel on international relations with former Secretary of State Madeline Albright. And the Black Eyed Peas (including "Yes We Can" songwriter will.i.am.) are headlining a gala for conventioneers who don't mind the screeches of Fergie.
Others, like Scarlett Johansson, seem to be signing up just to hang out without any particular agenda. To no one's surprise, early Obama promoter Oprah will be in for the convention; she even rented a house in Denver instead of booking a block of rooms in a posh hotel.
Will there be any famous people left for the Labor-Day-adjoining Republican National Convention? Sure! Gretchen Wilson will perform and Patricia Heaton and Taylor Hicks are expected to make appearances in Minneapolis. And of course, there's always Ahhhnold!
