    Clinton's former rivals to her skeptics: Get over it — we did

    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, 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 trailing Donald Trump in the polls.

    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 Wells Fargo Center arena 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.

    Joe Biden DNC speech shows he would have loved to run against Trump

    In a blistering, mocking speech Wednesday, former Defense Secretary Leon Panetta declared Donald Trump dangerously unfit to be commander in chief, accusing the brash entrepreneur of inviting Russian spies to help him defeat Hillary Clinton. “We cannot afford an erratic finger on our nuclear weapons,” Panetta, who also served President Obama as CIA director, told party faithful at the Democratic nominating convention here.

    The former Democratic chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee said Wednesday that the United States should withdraw its ambassador from Moscow if it is determined that the Russian government hacked Democratic National Committee computers. “I think the possibility that [the Russians] are going to try to influence the outcome of American presidential election is totally outrageous and unacceptable,” former Sen. Bob Graham of Florida said in an interview with Yahoo News at the Democratic National Convention. If the FBI conclusively determines that the Russian government was behind the cyberattack on the DNC, there should be severe consequences, Graham said.
