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.
