The Democratic National Convention continues with its second day Tuesday, as Hillary Clinton is set to become the first woman to ever win a major party's nomination for president. After an opening night filled with protests and boos from supporters of her primary rival Sen. Bernie Sanders, reports suggested Tuesday that Sanders might be planning to interrupt to the roll-call vote to nominate Clinton to request a vote by acclamation — a move Clinton herself pulled for President Obama at the 2008 convention for the sake of party unity.
However, when Sanders campaign manager Jeff Weaver was asked Tuesday morning whether the senator might be willing to make such a statement, Weaver demurred. "I don't want to give up all of the intrigue yet," Weaver said.
Aside from Clinton's historic nomination, Tuesday's agenda includes speeches from former President Bill Clinton, Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.), Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.), former President Jimmy Carter, U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder, Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards, and actress Lena Dunham. Also speaking are mothers who have lost their children to police violence, including the mothers of Michael Brown, Trayvon Martin, Eric Garner, and Tamir Rice.
