VIEWERS' GUIDE

* The partisan rhetoric is likely to heat up as the party officially renominates Clinton.

* After days of high-profile activity in Chicago, Gore gets his chance to stir enthusiasm within the convention hall. That has never been his forte, but he could benefit from signs that he has improved as a speaker.

* Four years ago, Clinton broke with tradition and made a brief appearance inside New York's Madison Square Garden minutes after he was nominated. Could he and his aides have a similar surprise in mind tonight?
