Even before tonight's opening session, the Democratic Convention has seen its first casualty. National Committee Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz took the fall for some 20,000 leaked emails showing some staff members favored Hillary Clinton and wanted to sabotage Bernie Sanders. Schultz, who is a Congresswoman from Florida, told her state's delegation today that Clinton asked her to serve as a surrogate "so that we could make sure that she is able to help build on the progress that we have been able to make for the last eight years. Because we have a lot of work to do, we have so much to do and we have to make sure that we move forward together in a unified way."
