Surprise! Monday Night’s Speakers Are Running Long

We have our first bit of drama tonight — will the speakers finish on time?

Mark Halperin notes former Congressman Jim Leach was scheduled to speak at 9:52 p.m., Senator McCaskill at 10:02 p.m, Michelle Obama at 10:30 p.m.
McCaskill takes the stage at 10:15. We’re thirteen minutes behind schedule. Does Michelle Obama begin speaking at 10:43? Does she go past 11 p.m.? Do the affiliates cut her off and go to the local news? Does McCaskill’s speech get trimmed? Does Michelle’s brother Craig Robinson cut his introduction?
