Former president keeping a low profile -- for now

DENVER (AP) -- Former President Clinton takes center stage at the Democratic convention in Denver Wednesday night, a night after his wife addresses the delegates.

But for now, he's keeping a low profile.

His spokesman says Clinton has been participating this morning in a panel at an international affairs forum.

The former president plans few other public outings, and no news media appearances.

Matt McKenna says that Clinton understands "this is Senator Obama's convention." He says Clinton is there to "do all he can to make Senator Obama our next president."

Asked whether the Clintons' star power could eclipse Obama during his moment in the sun, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said, "Absolutely, positively not."
