DENVER, Colorado (CNN) - Like nearly everything else Clinton-related this week, Hillary Clinton's convention speech remained a question mark until the last minute.
Its content was a mystery to even some of her closest advisers, who told CNN hours before the speech they weren't sure it was finished quite yet.
It was a work in progress until the very end - and one of its strongest rallying cries appeared nowhere in the prepared text.
"That is our mission, Democrats - Let us elect Barack Obama and Joe Biden," the New York senator told a capacity crowd waving signs that said "unity" on one side and bore either Clinton's or Obama's name on the other.
So far, the Democratic convention has been dominated by news of the Clintons. What would Hillary Clinton say Tuesday night? And what would her husband, former President Bill Clinton, say Wednesday night?
Would daughter Chelsea introduce her mother onstage, fueling visions of another Democratic dynasty? And what will happen Wednesday, when the convention roll call will either provide the "catharsis" Clinton predicted it might - or reopen primary season wounds?
