President Bill Clinton will play a prominent role at the Democratic National convention this summer, several Obama campaign and party officials say.

The former president will formally nominate President Barack Obama for re-election. And he will use a prime-time speech to argue that Obama has the strongest economic vision for the country's future, the officials say.

Clinton will speak on Sept. 5. That means both Obama and Vice President Joe Biden will speak on Sept. 6, the final night of the convention, before a crowd of about 70,000 people at an outdoor stadium in Charlotte, N.C.

The officials requested anonymity in order to discuss Clinton's role before it was formally announced.
