U2 lead singer Bono and wife at Democratic National Convention.
Bono, lead singer of the Irish rock group U2, and his wife Ali Hewson, attend the second night of the 2004 Democratic National Convention, July 27, 2004 at the FleetCenter in Boston. Democrats backed a controversy free party platform on Tuesday as the wife of White House hopeful John Kerry and the son of a Republican legend prepared to share the spotlight on the second night of their national convention. Looking to showcase Kerry's personal side, Teresa Heinz Kerry said she would share personal glimpses of her husband while a parade of speakers spell out the policy differences between Kerry and Republican President George W. Bush. Ron Reagan, son of the former Republican president, will push to lift restrictions on stem cell research that Bush has supported. The research could help treat illnesses like Alzheimer's, which his father fought for a decade before his death in June. REUTERS/John Gress US ELECTION HB/
