PHILADELPHIA (Reuters) - The head of the Democratic Party resigned on Sunday amid a furor over embarrassing leaked emails, hoping to head off a growing rebellion by Bernie Sanders supporters on the eve of the convention to nominate Hillary Clinton for the White House.

Lingering bitterness from the heated primary campaign between Clinton and Sanders erupted after more than 19,000 Democratic National Committee emails, leaked on Friday, confirmed Sanders' frequent charge that the party played favorites in the race.

In a statement, DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz said the best way for the party to accomplish its goal of putting Clinton in the White House was for her to step aside. Sanders had demanded earlier in the day that Wasserman Schultz resign.

The furor was a blow to a party keen on projecting stability in contrast to the volatility of Republican candidate Donald Trump, who was formally nominated at a raucous convention in Cleveland last week.

It also overshadowed preparations in Philadelphia for Clinton's coronation as the nominee to face Trump in the Nov. 8 presidential election. She will be the first woman nominated for president by a major U.S. political party.

The four-day Democratic convention will open on Monday. In some good news for Clinton, The New York Times reported that businessman and former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg will endorse her in a prime-time speech on Monday, saying she will be the best choice for moderate voters in 2016.
And the Sunday talk shows already gave us a glimpse of the love fest they are going to give hillary. There will be no disparaging comments from the left wing media at this coronation.

More proof that the Democratic party is not democratic.

One can only hope they push the Sanders people to far..

And all hell breaks loose!

They called the RNC convention "raucous"

My bet is this DNC convention will make ours look like a slumber party.

Ted Cruz: I'm not a 'servile puppy dog'

What say you, Bernie?

Bernie Sanders - "Arf Arf!!!!"

Bernie Sanders to delegates: Please don’t protest on convention floor

Quote:
Sen. Bernie Sanders sent a text message to the leaders of his delegation pleading with them not to protest on the Democratic convention floor Monday night.

“I ask you as a personal courtesy to me to not engage in any kind of protest on the floor,” he wrote in the text message to his delegate whips. “Its of utmost importance you explain this to your delegations.”
Line of the night...

Last night, Bernie exhibited all the qualities of a very obedient Revolutionary.

Biden and the President spoke last night. Virtually overshadowing the VP nominee on what was to be HIS night. And Bernie left the party. All in all a good night for the convention. A total love fest for the DNC with hugs and kisses and sweet smiles between normally scrapping politicians many of whom despise each other.

It reminded me of the Adult Films Awards a few weeks ago. Everybody smiling lovingly, complementing each other all nite as if they were a cohesive family of relatives and good friends. However sweet and polite at the evening ceremonies,,,; we all know they spend their careers screwing each other.
