Clinton to speak at CA Democratic convention

Bill Clinton has accepted an invitation to speak at the state Democratic convention in San Jose next weekend. State party Chair Art Torres said Friday that the former president will also meet privately with party leaders and officials known as "superdelegates" that could determine whether Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama will be the Democratic nominee.

An estimated one-third of California's 65 named superdelegates remain uncommitted.

Torres says he's also invited Obama and his wife Michelle to speak at the convention, but hasn't heard back yet.

The three-day convention is not open to the public.
