Joe Biden's DNC speech: live stream, how to watch, and what to expect

Vice President Joe Biden will take the stage on the third night of the Democratic National Convention, in a night that will also feature President Barack Obama and introduce Hillary Clinton’s own vice presidential pick, Virginia Sen. Tim Kaine.

The convention’s Wednesday theme is "Working Together," and from the looks of the speakers list, which includes several family members of mass shooting victims, gun control will also be a major theme of the night.

How to watch:

The Democrats will have a live stream on YouTube.

C-SPAN will air all convention proceedings on cable and provide a live stream for web viewers.

And CNN will have 24-hour coverage of the convention from Philadelphia.

The schedule:

The convention will be called to order at 4:30 pm.

Biden’s address will likely be between 9 pm and 10 pm.

Other speakers Wednesday include President Barack Obama, Clinton’s vice presidential pick Tim Kaine, as well family members of those killed in mass shootings in Charleston, South Carolina, and in Sandy Hook, Connecticut.

What to expect:

After garnering a lot of media buzz, last October Biden addressed the nation to say he would not be running for president. In January he told a Connecticut news station he "regrets it every day."

But Biden’s presidential aspirations will surely not come in the way of giving a ringing endorsement of Hillary Clinton Wednesday, where he is expected to full heartedly renew his endorsement of the Democratic nominee and her vice presidential pick Kaine.

As for commenting on Republican Donald Trump, Biden has been forthright with his criticisms in the past, lambasting Trump for his foreign policy. Biden is known for speaking his mind, and Trump’s recent remarks might bring that out of him Wednesday.
