ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: U.S. Democrats prepared to nominate their candidate Hillary Clinton to become the first female presidential nominee of a major U.S. party on Tuesday (July 26), a historic moment that Democrats hope will help eclipse rancor between her supporters and her rival in the primary contests, Bernie Sanders. Vice President Joe Biden toured the floor of the convention Tuesday. Biden said the party was unified and that Sanders supporters would rally behind Clinton. "I do not think there's any fracture in the party. I wish we could put something on every Sanders delegate walking into a booth. If we were able to find out, I bet you everything I have that hardly anyone's going to pull a lever for Trump," he said. "At the end of the day, Bernie and his supporters did more to change the party than the party did to change him," he said. Sanders, one of the main speakers on the first evening, portrayed Clinton as a fellow soldier in his fight for economic equality, but some of his supporters booed the mere mention of her name. He and the other main speakers on Monday, liberal favorite U.S. Senator Elizabeth Warren and first lady Michelle Obama, offered stirring endorsements of Clinton as the party tried to push through the discord and find a common goal in beating Republican Donald Trump in the Nov. 8 election.
