Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia: All you need to know

Democratic national convention is all set to nominate Hillary Clinton as the presidential nominee of the Democratic Party. There is no denying the fact that the Democrats seem a house divided, nonetheless the way Bernie Sanders has stood behind Hillary Clinton makes it clear that his supporters including fans and delegates will come around to support the former Secretary of State.

Bernie Sanders tried his best to keep his fans and supporters calm during the Democratic National Convention underway in Philadelphia. But apparently his fans and supporters who had supported him solidly have felt betrayed by the recent email leaks.

The leaks suggest that Democratic leadership did everything possible to support Hillary Clinton against Bernie Sanders and often used the official Democratic Party machinery to beat Bernie Sanders. It is amazing that despite latest disclosures Bernie Sanders has stood solidly behind Hillary Clinton.Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia

In the meantime Hillary Clinton will formally be nominated as the first woman presidential nominee in history today. Reports suggest that following the roll call vote, the theme of the night will be “fighting for children and families” and many speakers are expected to focus on gun violence across the nation.

As far as leading speakers at the Democratic National Convention today are concerned, former President Bill Clinton will be delivering his tenth consecutive convention address. The former president arrived at the convention in Philadelphia on Monday and was seen watching the program from the stands at the Wells Fargo Center.

Besides Bill Clinton other featured speakers include mothers who lost their children to gun violence such as Eric Garner’s mother, Gwen Carr; Trayvon Martin’s mother, Sybrina Fulton; and Michael Brown’s mother, Lezley McSpadden. Meanwhile President Obama is scheduled to address the convention Wednesday evening and Hillary Clinton is expected to deliver her nomination speech on Thursday. Bernie Sanders has already addressed the convention.
