The Democratic National Convention is set to get under way in Philadelphia Monday and the guest list is a who's who of left-leaning politics in the U.S. But the true guest of honor is Hillary Clinton, who is set to make history as the first woman to accept the nomination from one of the two major parties.
The convention is scheduled to be hosted at the Wells Fargo Center from Monday to Thursday. The Clinton campaign might take a different tone from the Republican campaign to celebrate GOP nominee Donald Trump.
"Donald Trump painted a dark picture of an America in decline. And his answer — more fear, more division, more anger, more hate — was yet another reminder that he is temperamentally unfit and totally unqualified to be president of the United States," Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta said in a statement after Trump's convention speech. "America is better than Donald Trump. Next week in Philadelphia, Democrats will focus on issues, not anger. We'll offer a positive vision for the future based on lifting America up, not tearing Americans down."
