Peruse the Republican convention schedule that was released yesterday (PDF) and on Thursday evening you’ll find a “to be announced” speaking in primetime:

The only other speakers to follow “To Be Announced” will be Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida and Mr. Romney himself, suggesting that the unnamed guest may appear during the 10 p.m. hour when the networks all will be broadcasting the convention.

Convention planners have spread the announcement of the speakers for this week’s gathering across a few weeks, slowly revealing the names of those who landed coveted slots. But until Monday, it appeared that all the blanks had been filled in, as most high-profile Republicans already had speaking roles or had explained their absence from the convention.

Guesses run the gamut…

Nancy Reagan?

Douglas Wilder?

Sarah Palin?

Hologram Reagan?

Joe Manchin switching parties on the spot?

Betty White’s out.

Who would be an asset for the GOP Thursday night in convincing more voters turn on to Romney and turn away from Obama? There are very few names that haven’t yet been predicted, so in order to be remotely original I’m left with having to guess either Dennis Miller, Paul Ryan’s mother or Joe Biden.

Have at it!
