The schedule is set, the gavel’s been hammered, and the 2012 Republican National Convention is underway. There’s just one speaking spot that hasn’t been announced yet…and it happens to be right during the 10PM hour on Thursday, shortly before Marco Rubio and the nominee himself, Mitt Romney take the stage, fueling some speculation that it’s someone high-profile.
Buried deep in the convention schedule released Monday is a vague reference to a mystery speaker scheduled for the event’s final evening. “To Be Announced” has a prime speaking slot late in the Thursday program.
