    PHILADELPHIA — Virginia Sen. Tim Kaine is now officially the Democratic vice presidential nominee, but party officials intentionally rushed the formal proceedings here at the Democratic National Convention on Wednesday to avoid the boos and protests of Bernie Sanders supporters. “The chair will entertain a motion to suspend the rules and nominate Tim Kaine by acclamation as the vice presidential candidate of the Democratic Party,” said Ohio Rep. Marcia Fudge, who took over as chairman of the Democratic National Convention after the ouster of Debbie Wasserman Schultz this week. “Is there a second?” “All in favor of the motion to...

    Senator Bernie Sanders once again faced boos on Tuesday as his restive supporters continued to raise protests despite his efforts to persuade them that voting for Hillary Clinton is the best way to defeat Donald J. Trump. After making the rounds at several breakfasts, the Vermont senator was met with a loud chorus of boos from members of the California delegation. The booing started immediately, with many people in the audience giving Mr. Sanders a thumbs-down sign. But Mr. Sanders was quick to wave the crowd to be quiet and to chide them for their response. “It’s easy, it is...

    In a speech to his delegates that drew fierce boos and palpable anger, Sen. Bernie Sanders on Monday urged his supporters to help Hillary Clinton defeat her opponent because the alternative is a danger to American society. Donald Trump "is a bully and a demagogue!” Sanders told a packed ballroom full of hundreds of impassioned loyalists at the Pennsylvania Convention Center. “So is Hillary!” were among chants he got in return. More than once they booed when he said her name. The Center City meeting with Sanders' pledged delegates on the opening day of the Democratic National Convention followed a...

    PHILADELPHIA -- Debbie Wasserman Schultz, the embattled outgoing chair of the Democratic National Committee, was forcibly driven out of her own state delegation's breakfast Monday amid vocal and unwieldy protests by Bernie Sanders' supporters. Schultz, who announced Sunday she would resign her chairmanship after emails showed top staffers at the Democratic National Committee worked to undermine Sanders' primary campaign against Hillary Clinton, attempted to talk over a chorus of heckles and boos at a downtown hotel hosting the Florida Democratic Party. But the Florida congresswoman, who faces a newly emboldened primary challenge in her home state, could barely be heard...

Amid ugly scenes, an event organizer repeatedly tried to quiet the crowd, but the boos continued as Wasserman Schultz began speaking. "Shame on you!" screamed some. "You rigged the election!" was another repeated refrain. Many of the vocal protesters were seen wearing shirts supporting Sen. Bernie Sanders.

    This was supposed to be one of the biggest and brightest days for Debbie Wasserman Schultz: day one of the Democratic National Convention to nominate the first female candidate from a major party in American history. Instead, the embattled chair of the DNC has been forced to resign just days after Wikileaks released tens of thousands of incriminating emails that suggest efforts from within to target Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders during the primary. And on Monday morning when Wasserman Schultz got up to speak at a delegate breakfast for her home state of Florida, she was met with exactly the...

    One thing we’ve gotten used during the presidential campaign of Donald Trump is the the presence of huge (sorry… YUGE) crowds at his rallies. It’s been one of the dominant features in all the earned media he receives and keeps the networks lining up to cover his events even as he insults them to their faces. We’re also accustomed to the occasional protesters who show up and wind up being quickly escorted from the venue. But one thing we definitely do not see at these huge events is widespread booing and catcalls directed at Trump himself from his army...
