(ABC NEWS) “We are stronger together,” the campaign slogan says. But the voices of the convention say there’s still strong interest in staying apart.
A raucous Democratic National Convention opened Monday night under conditions previously found only in paperback political thrillers.
The chair of the Democratic Party was almost literally booed away entirely. The city was on a sweltering, soaked and locked-down edge. A massive email hack of the Democratic National Committee was being blamed on the Russians.
A night that was intended to showcase Democratic unity instead exposed the opposite. Mere mentions of the names of Hillary Clinton and Tim Kaine drew jeers and worse from delegates early on.
