Here's 3 celebs likely to come to Charlotte


Which celebrities will make it to Charlotte for the convention?

Well, you have to figure that those named last week as national co-chairs to President Barack Obama's 2012 campaign would be good bets to be here.

Politicians, natch, make up more than half of those on the list of 35.

But the co-chairs also include actress Eva Longoria (above, John Shearer/Getty Images for VF), one of the stars of "Desperate Housewives" and a leading Obama supporter and fundraiser in the Latino community - a group of voters that, according to Time magazine's current cover story, could decide the presidential election.

Another co-chair who might be seen around town come September: Caroline Kennedy. The daughter of JFK and Jackie is an author, lawyer, and president of the John F. Kennedy Library Foundation.

Representing both Hollywood and Washington on the list: Kalpen Modi, better known as the actor Kal Penn. He's a former White House staffer. And he starred in TV's "House"; the award-winning film "The Namesake," about an Indian-Amercan family; and the Harold & Kumar big screen stoner comedies.

Politicos on the co-chair list include Gov. Deval Patrick of Massachusetts, Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel, and Sen. Jeanne Shaheen of New Hampshire.
The only North Carolinian on the list is retired teacher Ann Cherry, who taught music in Eastern North Carolina public schools for 30 years. She's a volunteer leader with the Obama campaign - one of five volunteers from key battleground states to make the co-chairs list.

The Main Guest will attend the DNC as usual in cognito. Bring your Rosary.
