scarlett johansson natalie portman kerry washington democrat national convention Scarlett Johansson and Natalie Portman to speak at 2012 Democratic National Convention   reportThe 2012 Republican National Convention welcomed Clint Eastwood as its headlining celebrity, who then proceeded to give a rather strange speech. The 2012 Democratic National Convention is countering with Scarlett Johansson, Natalie Portman and Kerry Washington.

The three actresses have been scheduled for Thursday night (Sept. 6), according to a tentative schedule provided to CNN by an unnamed source. The Hollywood ladies will follow The Foo Fighters and the DNC officials are hoping to have the three women appear on stage together.

At an average age of 31, the actresses represent two demographics the Democrats need to carry — women and young voters. Are you interested to tune in to see what the women say?
