Day Two for the Democrats Last night, Teddy Kennedy passed the torch to a new generation, and the Obamas were the all-American family. Tonight, Hillary Clinton will address the convention, and the world will learn how serious the split with Barack Obama supporters really is. The National Convention is supposed to unify Democrats around Obama's presidential candidacy, but media coverage continues to emphasize the continuing tension with Clinton supporters. We talk with delegates in both camps. Are the media fanning a controversy that's only skin deep? Keynote speaker Mark Warner says he's not an attack dog. Are the Democrats missing their chance for an offensive against John McCain and George Bush?
The longest US war: Will Trump send more troops to Afghanistan? The Trump White House is divided over the Pentagon's request for more troops in Afghanistan—where the US has been fighting for the past 16 years.

Janesville and the American Dream Janesville, Wisconsin is the hometown of Republican House Speaker Paul Ryan. But he couldn’t prevent the closing of the General Motors factory after 100 years.

The Trump agenda: where's the beef? President Trump says big things are happening. After celebrating a House bill on health care, he doesn’t yet have Senate agreement.

Later, terror attacks in Iran and conflicting claims about who’s behind them.
