    The Unconventional Diaries: Optimistic Democrats look past a shaky start

    Banners are hung, Wasserman Schultz resigns, protests are underway and Bernie supporters are on the ground in Philadelphia. Yahoo News has enlisted participants at the Democratic National Convention representing different viewpoints and roles to file daily diary entries on their experiences in Philadelphia. Despite all of this, I’m still smiling because I’m reminded how much I love seeing all the people who come to Democratic Party events, especially those who I don’t often see because they work all year for their home state parties.

    New Clinton VP pick Kaine tried to shame Congress into action on ISIS

    Nobody knows better than Hillary Clinton the steep political price to pay for voting in favor of an unpopular war. Clinton’s 2002 “yes” vote on legislation permitting George W. Bush to hurl America’s military against Saddam Hussein’s Iraq helped smother her 2008 presidential hopes. Kaine has bluntly told colleagues who are worried about the long-term political fallout of voting yes (or no) to a war on ISIS that ducking a vote now amounts to cowardice and sets a terrifying precedent for unchecked presidential war-making power.

    Trump uses DNC email leak to court Sanders fans

Bernie Sanders’ supporters who feel their candidate didn’t get a fair shake in the primaries.

    Hillary Clinton picks Tim Kaine for VP

    Hillary Clinton announced Friday that she has picked Sen. Tim Kaine of Virginia as her running mate, making a safe, centrist choice that will likely disappoint some in the progressive wing of her party. “I’m thrilled to tell you this first: I’ve chosen Sen. Tim Kaine as my running mate,” Clinton wrote in a text message to her supporters Friday night. In a later email, she said she chose Kaine because she was confident he could step in and be president at a “moment’s notice” and because he is beloved by his staff and Senate colleagues.

    Tim Kaine through the years

    Hillary Clinton announced Friday that she has picked Sen. Tim Kaine of Virginia as her running mate, making a safe, centrist choice that will likely disappoint some in the progressive wing of her party. The pair is set to campaign together in Miami on Saturday and then head to the Democratic National Convention next week. Kaine offers Clinton many strengths as a running mate: He has foreign policy experience from his time on the Armed Services and Foreign Relations committee in the Senate, he can boost her chances to win the battleground state of Virginia, and he has a squeaky-clean, nice guy image that could help Clinton with her trust issues among voters.
