Outgoing Democratic National Committee Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz faced an angry backlash at a meeting of her home state activists Monday morning as new signs of party discord emerged while Democrats prepared to kick off their national convention. As she took the podium at a Florida delegation breakfast, the South Florida congresswoman faced boos, which competed with many of the cheers she received. ... Two of the Democratic Party’s most popular liberal stars — Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders and Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren — will speak Monday during the first night of the party’s national convention, as organizers try to move the focus of the gathering beyond the leak of a trove of embarrassing emails that forced Wasserman Schultz to resign/Washington Post. More here.

Question: Do you think the Democratic convention will be as entertaining for the casual observer as the Republican one?
