    Hillary opens the ultimate door for women, but some are still left behind

    President Obama and Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton acknowledge the crowd at the Democratic National Convention on Wednesday. Hillary Clinton is the first woman major-party presidential nominee. On Friday, women will still constitute less than 20 percent of all members of Congress, and Hillary Clinton’s historic achievement doesn’t change the persistence of gender inequality in 21st century American politics.

    What Clinton and Trump will — and won’t — get from classified briefings

    A senior U.S. intelligence official said the briefings would not occur until Democrats wrap up the business of nominating Hillary Clinton, but would not set a precise date. When they happen, they’ll take place at a secure facility, likely with a team of senior intelligence community analysts, on one day or over a few days if a candidate wants to delve deeply into one topic. It’ll be a one-off review of major national security concerns — unlike the president, they won’t get daily briefings through the election.

    Chelsea, once (and possibly future) first daughter

    Chelsea Clinton and husband Marc Mezvinsky arrive at a Met Gala in New York City in 2013. When Chelsea Clinton takes the stage to introduce her mother as the Democratic nominee for president at the convention in Philadelphia tonight, many in the hall and in the TV audience will be remembering other moments in the life of this woman whom they have been watching since she was a little girl. There is the image of the awkward preteen with an unruly cascade of curls and a mouth full of braces, who favored tie-dyed T-shirts and held White House sleepovers, back when her parents fiercely protected her privacy.

    ‘Malarkey’ searches skyrocket after Joe Biden's DNC speech

    Afterward, lookups for the old-fashioned, somewhat corny word “malarkey” spiked more than 17,400 percent on Merriam-Webster.com. Peter Sokolowski, editor at large of Merriam-Webster, pointed out that there are many reasons to look up a word in the dictionary other than learning its meaning, whether it’s double-checking the spelling, reading about its etymology or something else. Biden has said “malarkey” many times throughout his political career dating back to at least 1983.

    'Shameful': N.C. GOP mistakenly claims Kaine’s military pin is flag of Honduras

    Sen. Tim Kaine speaks during the third day of the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia, July 27, 2016. During his speech at the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia to accept the vice presidential nomination on Wednesday night, Tim Kaine was wearing a lapel pin honoring Blue Star Families — like his — which have members serving in the military. The North Carolina GOP, though, mistakenly thought it was the flag of Honduras, where the Virginia senator volunteered as a Jesuit missionary before entering law school.

    Tim Kaine dad jokes flood Twitter after DNC speech

    Tim Kaine kicked off his Wednesday night Democratic National Convention speech as any well-meaning family man might — by thanking his wife and children. According to Twitter, at least, Kaine’s father-figure brand stuck around throughout his speech — and long after it finished — as viewers at home flooded social media with suburban dad jokes about Hillary Clinton’s vice presidential pick. Before Clinton tapped the Virginia senator and former governor to be her running mate, he was not particularly well-known to the general public.

    Donald Trump says he was ‘being sarcastic’ when he called on Russia to find Hillary Clinton’s emails

    Donald Trump says he was kidding when he directly called on Russia to find the estimated 30,000 emails that Hillary Clinton deleted from a private email server she used as secretary of state. The committee’s emails, which were leaked on the eve of the Democratic National Convention, suggested the Democratic Party favored Clinton over Bernie Sanders during the primaries. Administration officials and cybersecurity experts believe those emails, which were obtained and published by WikiLeaks, were the result of a breach of the DNC’s servers carried out by Russian hackers in an apparent attempt to influence the outcome of the U.S. presidential election.

    Coming to you live every morning from Philadelphia, Unconventional is the one thing you need to read to understand what’s really happening at the Democratic National Convention. PHILADELPHIA — How do you solve a problem like Hillary? With Bernie Sanders packing his bags for Burlington, and the party’s presidential nomination finally, firmly settled (even if the last few Sanders stragglers protesting in the press tent might disagree), the attention of the Democratic National Convention turned Wednesday to the unenviable task of trying to persuade the American people to vote for a nominee whom 55 percent of them don’t like and 68 percent of them don’t trust — and who is actually trailing Donald Trump in the polls right now.

    Obama: ‘America is already great,’ vote Hillary

    President Obama formally passed the torch to Hillary Clinton on Wednesday — but not before using it to try to burn down Donald Trump’s hopes of the White House and to light a fire under any Democratic voters inclined to stay home in November. “America is already great, America is already strong,” Obama told rowdy, sign-waving party activists packed into the Wells Fargo Center here, cheering his direct assault on the Republican nominee’s signature slogan. “And I promise you, our strength, our greatness, does not depend on Donald Trump,” he said, to commingled hurrahs and laughter.
