    I would imagine they are specifically leaving all of the people on the VP short list off of the preliminary schedule so as not to tip their hat.

    It’s weird because they already previously revealed that Warren was invited to speak on the first night. Now her name has been omitted from the schedule. A signal? Hopefully.
