Byron York: At DNC, a day and a night for Bernie people to vent — PHILADELPHIA - The Bernie people lined up in long, triple-deep columns in a cavernous room at the Pennsylvania Convention Center Monday afternoon, waiting to hear Bernie Sanders tell them what he would do.

Sanders tweets a burn at trolling Trump after DNC speech — Moments after Bernie Sanders finished his address at the Democratic National Convention Monday evening, his Twitter account fired a direct shot at Donald Trump, who had been live-tweeting the speech. Speaking to the delegates gathered in Philadelphia and audiences around the country, Sanders urged Democrats to unite behind Hillary Clinton, who is expected to officially become the party's nominee this week, while panning Trump.

'Bernie started a revolution, he can't stop it now': Sanders backers still refuse to quit — PHILADELPHIA - For diehard Bernie Sanders supporters at the Democratic National Convention, nothing he said in his Monday night speech will convince them to vote for Hillary Clinton, or to quiet down during her all-but-guaranteed nomination this week.

Fed rate hike didn't ease financial pressures — One of the main arguments for the Federal Reserve to raise interest rates and deflate financial bubbles lost some of its strength Monday with the release of government research that found that the December rate increase didn't ease pressure for investors to take excessive risks.

The Democratic Insider Convention — The Democratic National Convention is featuring not only many of politic's biggest names, such as President Obama, first lady Michelle Obama, and former President Bill Clinton, but also Hollywood luminaries. A dozen A-list celebs - including starlets Lena Dunham, Demi Lovato, Chloe Grace Moretz, Katy Perry, Eva Longoria, Alicia Keys and more - will speak or appear in Philadelphia in support of Hillary Clinton and the Democrats.

How Tim Kaine's position on abortion is worse than Hillary's — There aren't many politicians whose position on abortion is more extreme, or more deplorable, than Hillary Clinton's. She is a long-time defender of partial-birth abortion, was instrumental in removing the word rare from the Democratic Party platform's safe, legal and rare language on abortion, and she is now calling for repeal of the Hyde Amendment, a bipartisan rule that for 40 years barred taxpayer funds from being used for most abortions through Medicaid.

Division and denunciation on Dems' day of unity — If anyone was expecting peace and Democratic unity at the Democratic Convention this week, in contrast to days of GOP turbulence in Cleveland last week, they were surprised upon arriving in Philadelphia. The Democrats' theme on day one of their convention was unity, but it was a hope that got no further than the rhetoric and was certainly not manifest in the mood at the convention arena.

AFL-CIO's Trumka calls Trump 'wrong, wrong, wrong,' praises Clinton — AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka blasted GOP nominee Donald Trump Monday, and rallied to presumptive Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton's side in a speech at the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia. Working people are strong, and Donald Trump is wrong, wrong, wrong, he said. Trumka with a barnburner of a pro-Hillary speech and the boos are getting quieter.

Former Dem faith director condemns plot to attack Sanders' religion — PHILADELPHIA - The former director of Faith Outreach for the Democratic Party absolutely condemns an alleged plot by a Democratic operative to undermine Bernie Sanders by questioning his religion. I can certainly say from first-hand experience that I was part of a campaign where it was a solemn vow in no way, shape or form to use faith as a wedge issue, Rev.

Sanders efforts to avoid protests sway some delegates — PHILADELPHIA - Bernie Sanders' campaign is working with Hillary Clinton's to minimize dissension of the Democratic convention floor, changing some delegates' minds in the process. Following a day of dissent in Philadelphia, the Sanders campaign sent texts to delegates loyal to the Vermont senator asking them not to protest on the floor Monday night out of courtesy to their candidate.
