Clinton to get roll call at convention

Hillary Rodham Clinton's name will be placed in nomination along with nominee-in-waiting Barack Obama at the Democratic convention in Denver.

The move is intended to unite the party after a divisive primary fight.

Democrats will officially nominate Obama at the convention but the state delegations will do a traditional roll call for his vanquished opponent as well.

The rivals-turned-allies agreed to the arrangement after weeks of negotiations.

Some 35 million people participated in the Democratic primary. In a joint statement, Obama and Clinton said they wanted to "honor and celebrate these voices and votes."
