"She never missed a time to vote - ever".
Bernie Sanders loyalists warned that the Democratic Party could rupture over the nomination of Hillary Clinton after a volatile night that saw a large group of Sanders delegates and supporters exit the party's national convention to stage a sit-in at a nearby media tent. This has rallied her supporters while triggering a wave of furious protests among the rest.
But then Hillary Clinton made an unexpected visit via satellite. Can she live up to that promise?
But when Sanders urged his delegates to back the Clinton- Kaine ticket, there were boos and chants of "we want Bernie".
"A 30-minute meeting turned into two hours because she listened to us".
"This isn't about being politically correct", Sybrina Fulton, Trayvon Martin's mother, said in reference to Donald Trump. "It is an honor for me and the people of Ohio".
"We are embarking on a convention today that - thanks to the great efforts of Secretary Clinton, her team, Senator Sanders, his team, and the entire Democratic Party - will show a forward-thinking and optimistic vision for America, as compared to the dark and pessimistic view that the GOP presented last week in Cleveland", the statement read.
Five years ago, Debbie Wasserman Schultz was put in charge of the Democratic National Committee to usher in a new era for the party. What do you make of that?

"The system is rigged".
"I have decided that in the interest of making sure that we can start the Democratic convention on a high note that I am not going to gavel in the convention", she told the Sun-Sentinel, a newspaper in her district. They colluded to spread false rumors about Bernie Sanders behind his back.
Our fact checking team will be working to verify claims made during the DNC, as they did during the RNC. At the convention, each state's delegation is required to have delegates vote according to the state's primary election. He campaigned to "end welfare as we know it", and once in office pursued economic policies dear to Wall Street's heart: trade deals with Mexico and, much more disastrously for American manufacturing, China; repealing the Glass-Steagall Act; and declining to regulate derivatives.
RT: Clinton has been harshly criticized for her role in the Benghazi affair, which led to the murder of U.S. Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens after Islamic militants attacked the American diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya on September 11, 2012. "I'm gonna tweet that right now", Colbert remarked. Her passionate pitch for Clinton on opening night won praise even from Donald Trump, who turned the other cheek for once and ignored her digs. And so all of their questions have been pointed toward that.
"I think people were hoping we could sway the delegates and show that there really is a movement here", said Alexis Holmes, a school janitor from Carbondale, Illinois, who has been protesting in the city since Sunday. Why did we overthrow the Gaddafi government in Libya, turning the place into an absolute hellhole and opening the door wide open for ISIS and destroying the country. Clinton did the same in 2008 in support of her then-rival, Obama.
The Post quotes Julian Assange, the founder of WikiLeaks and its current top editor, who said that the release [of the DNC emails] on Friday was the first in a series. Ramirez-Rosa said he'll vote for Clinton, but she needs to reinforce opposition to the Trans-Pacific Partnership. Each speaker or set of speakers was placed for this objective, to reintroduce Hillary Clinton to the public-not as a hypercompetent diplomat or a steely-eyed legislator, or indefatigable presidential candidate, but as a relatable, good-hearted, and fundamentally decent woman.
It took two tries for Clinton to get here, but get here she did. She's the devoted mother who gave her all to raise their daughter. That alone should disqualify her for the presidency.
I began to question whether these folks were real big-D Democrats with a sense of loyalty to the party and its platform.
