|Bernie Sanders urges support for former rival Hillary Clinton|
Day one of the Democratic National Convention and much of the chaos exposed by the DNC chief has deflated some of the support from Hillary Clinton. She has to owe up to the skeptical progressives who felt that Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) got shafted by her.
Bernie Sanders, Michelle Obama, Elizabeth Warren, Cory Booker had an opportunity to give their support to Hillary Clinton and Tim Kaine.
The standing ovation Bernie Sanders got shows that he's still a powerful force in the Democratic Party. He mentioned Clinton's name and it somewhat gets applause. He dumps on the media and the agitators hoping for a bloodbath in Philadelphia.
Still bitterness with the insurgent wing of the Democratic Party. Clinton and Kaine will have to find opportunity to make the case.
Bernie lays out the message. He warns Democrats (including Hillary Clinton and Pres. Barack Obama) to find their progressive roots or face a bitter defeat at the ballot box.
First Lady Michelle Obama won the night for the fact that she called for party unity and told a factual statement about the White House.
Conservatives seethe with rage over the true fact that the White House was built with slave blood.
Each of the speakers faced a set of boos from the Bernie Bros. The supporters of Sanders are frustrating but have a point. If the DNC chief Debbie Wasserman Schultz would have stayed neutral, you wouldn't see these concern trolls bemoaning the nomination of the first woman to ever clinch it.
So here's the videos. Love them or hate them.
