Bernie Sanders hasn't grown much fonder of the media

Elizabeth Warren and, most impressively, First Lady Michelle Obama.

The self-described democratic socialist laid out the differences between Clinton and Republican nominee Donald Trump on a slew of policy issues, including global warming. "The choice is not even close". A longtime Hillary Clinton loyalist, she was them eight years ago.

Still, with the Democratic convention in its second day, Sanders is struggling to regain control over the supporters he inspired to fight against a "rigged" system during the Democratic primary.

The release of the emails by Wikileaks led DNC chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz to resign from her post on the eve of the convention's start, laying a dark cloud over Clinton in her efforts to unify the party following her tough nomination battle with Sanders.

One of the leaked emails showed DNC Chief Financial Officer Brad Marshall urging "someone" to question Sanders' Jewish faith during Kentucky and West Virginia primaries.

"It's something we respect", campaign communications director Jennifer Palmieri said of the Sanders delegates' noisy support for him. She described Sanders as "beautifully motivated". He recalled 2008, when he was a Barack Obama delegate to that year's Democratic National Convention and anxious that Clinton supporters would never unify behind the party's then-nominee.

"It's an all-hands-on-deck time", she said in a weekend interview with CBS's "60 Minutes".

"I wake up every morning in a house that was built by slaves, and I watch my daughters, two attractive and intelligent black young women, playing with their dogs on the White House lawn", Obama said. "I still believe in miracles". After an opening night filled with protests and boos from supporters of her primary rival Sen. He says Sanders is a good pick to get voters excited about the general election.

Thousands of emails from her subordinates were leaked just days before the convention in Philadelphia, and some suggested a negative view of Sanders, a USA senator from Vermont. "We can have points of view, and debate them, and move in that direction, but think of the consequences". The Clinton campaign seems not to have understood that yet. "I think it's a combination of "you know what, we want to be heard, we want some respect, show that we matter, ' and then it's also the 'I can never be on board with her" mentality".

"It should be an embarrassment", Sanders said. "There's no excuse for it". Moran booed into her water bottle to help the sound echo louder in the arena. "We could use 5,000 more, starting with Hillary". "A lot of Sanders' supporters think they were right all along. This makes them feel better".

Sanders spoke briefly to the Missouri delegation next door, where his remarks were more direct. "Donald Trump is a disaster", he said.

"We're all in this together, " said Hogan, a native of Lake Charles. It began when she was a single mother and got medical care for her child thanks to a health-insurance expansion for kids that Clinton had championed. That's what Clinton did on Obama's behalf in 2008 to indicate their rivalry was truly over. She used her personal story of raising two young African-American girls in the White House to tie her husband's history-making presidency to the history-making bid of Hillary Clinton. "We have come together on a proposal that will revolutionize higher education in America".
