CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - President Barack Obama joined former President Bill Clinton on the stage of the Democratic National Convention after Clinton gave a rousing speech nominating Obama to be the Democratic candidate in the November presidential election.

Obama was making his first appearance at the convention where the Democratic faithful have gathered to re-nominate him to be the nation's leader for the next four years.

Obama did not speak to the cheering crowd. He is to give his acceptance speech at the close of the convention on Thursday.
