102 days: Now, the sprint to November

usatoday.com — 102 days. More than a year after Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump announced their presidential campaigns, and after months of bitter primaries that took unexpected turns in both parties, the sprint to November has started.

For Clinton, Obama is an asset - and a challenge

usatoday.com — PHILADELPHIA - Count President Obama as one of Hillary Clinton's most potent assets - and as one of her biggest challenges. Obama-as-asset was in the spotlight at the Democratic National Convention on Wednesday night. The president brought just about everybody in the hall to their feet with a speech designed to boost her with the electoral coalition that twice has elected him to the White House.

Clinton and Sanders: Newfound allies as Democrats divide

usatoday.com — PHILADELPHIA - It's a sign of how divided the Democrats are that Hillary Clinton was counting on Bernie Sanders to put it back together. Through a long and sometimes bitter primary battle, Sanders had gone from annoying critic to increasingly serious challenger for the Democratic presidential nomination.

Clinton goes with her heart on Kaine VP pick

usatoday.com — CLEVELAND - Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump don't share much, but when it came down to picking a running mate, they made similar choices - albeit with opposite rationales. Clinton's announcement that she had chosen Virginia Sen. Tim Kaine for the Democratic ticket in some ways was a parallel to Trump's choice of Indiana Gov.

Analysis: The Republican convention as reality TV. Not in a good way

usatoday.com — CLEVELAND - Perhaps it shouldn't be a surprise that the Republican National Convention nominating Donald Trump for president would turn out to be less like the traditional glowing infomercial and more like a reality TV show. And not in a good way.

Bob Dole: 'Trump's going to make a great president'

usatoday.com — CLEVELAND - The other past Republican presidential nominees who are still around seem sufficiently dismayed by Donald Trump as standard-bearer that they haven't even shown up here for the GOP convention.

Analysis: An embrace for Trump from party leaders. But not too close

usatoday.com — CLEVELAND - They backed other candidates in the Republican primaries, or stayed out altogether. They have had to defend or distance themselves from his most provocative declarations. In public and private, they've urged him to exercise more discipline and restraint.

Analysis: Turbulence inside the hall, around the globe

usatoday.com — CLEVELAND - Donald Trump, unconventional from the start, did the unprecedented on the first night of the convention poised to nominate him for president: He showed up on stage. "We're going to win," he told the arena. "We're going to win so big."

Trump's female strategy: A new tone. Also, Ivanka

wcnc.com — CLEVELAND - Team Trump sees the Republican National Convention as a second chance for Donald Trump to make a first impression with the women who are likely to decide the presidential election.

Trump's female strategy: A new tone. Also, Ivanka

caller.com — The billionaire businessman's standing with female voters, which has hit historically dismal levels, is prompting some of his advisers to try to moderate his tone, hone his message on security and spotlight daughter Ivanka at the GOP conclave that is poised to nominate him for president this week.

@maryetta_mary I don't think Bernie Sanders intends to run as a 3rd party candidate. But agree some of his supporters wish he would. Thanks
