The coronation of Hillary Clinton as the presidential nominee of the Democratic Party this week has suddenly been overshadowed by WikiLeaks’ release of 19,252 emails and 8,034 attachments belonging to high-ranking staffers of the Democratic National Committee (DNC). The 4,769 delegates that have been arriving in The City of Brotherly Love over the weekend (as well as the American public) have been fed a steady stream of embarrassing revelations by the media.

The emails, which are believed to have originated from hacks to DNC servers in May 2016 by Russian hacking teams Cozy Bear and Fancy Bear, have already led to the resignation of DNC Chair, Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz after several internal correspondences appear to confirm allegations that the DNC were favoring the candidacy of Secretary Clinton over her primary rival Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont.

Sen. Sanders, who has been vindicated by the disclosure, has chosen to remain magnanimous and thanked Rep. Wasserman Schultz “for her years of service.” The Florida Representative also received complimentary remarks from President Barack Obama and Secretary Clinton.

Although her resignation will only take effect after the convention, Rep. Wasserman Schultz will neither speak nor play an active role in the convention. DNC vice chair Donna Brazile has taken over as acting convention chair while Ohio Rep. Marcia Fudge will be taking over the chairmanship of the Rules Committee.

There are still concerns though that a segment of Sen. Sanders supporters will hold disruptive protests against the party leadership throughout the week. However, in an email to supporters, Sen. Sanders has scheduled a meeting with his 1,900 delegates on Monday morning, which will probably dampen any major scheduled protests.

The convention will begin unofficially on Monday morning at the nearby Philadelphia Convention Center with meetings between several caucuses and working groups. Interim convention chair Donna Brazile will open the convention officially at the Wells Fargo Center at about 4 p.m. in the afternoon.

Aside from social activists and elected officials, including President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden, the convention will play host to a number of A-list actors, musicians and sportsmen including NBA legend Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and the Collins brothers (Jason and Jarron), actors Bryan Cranston, Chloe Grace Moretz, Eva Longoria and Tony Goldwyn, and singer Demi Lovato.

 Democratic Presidential Nominee Hillary Clinton
 
Hillary Clintons’ entry into the 2016 presidential election was never in doubt. While her defeat to President Obama in the 2008 nomination race is a distant memory now, her subsequent gracious and powerful endorsement speech lingers in the minds of many. With her extensive frontline and behind-the-scenes political experience, Secretary Clinton has virtually, and quite comfortably, sealed her status as the presidential nominee for the Democratic Party.

Clinton Vice-Presidential Running Mate

 Presumptive Democratic Vice-Presidential Nominee
Current U.S. Senator and former Governor from Virginia
Democratic Vice-Presidential Nominee Tim Kaine
 
The former Jesuit missionary, law professor and attorney once won a record $100 million judgement against an insurance company for discriminatory lending practices. Despite his successful private practice, the call of public service ultimately proved to be too strong for Sen. Kaine, and he was elected to serve as the Mayor of Richmond in 1998. The father of three would go on to serve as the Lt. Governor of Virginia and Governor of Virginia. Today, Sen. Kaine serves in the U.S. Senate and sits on four committees.
