Hillary Clinton's running mate, U. S. Sen. Tim Kaine of Virginia, has been described by critics as a snoozer of a choice who could fail to inspire the more liberal wing of the Democratic Party, blue collar workers and others.
 they describe a deep thinker with a light touch — a person who reads dense books on philosophy for fun but also jams on harmonica with any band that will let him play along.
Friends and supporters believe Kaine's varied interests and personal background — he's a Harvard Law grad with a blue collar upbringing who served as a Catholic missionary — will help him connect to voters around the country.
After serving as a Richmond city councilmember and part-time mayor, Kaine became the Democratic nominee for lieutenant governor when the presumed candidate dropped out following a cancer diagnosis.
 when he was mayor of Richmond, Kaine caught heat from gun activists after using city funds to transport participants to the Million Mom March gun control rally in Washington, D.
The Democratic National Convention opening Monday in Philadelphia is Clinton's chance to hit reset after a vigorous primary against Bernie Sanders and the unlikely movement that formed behind the Vermont senator.
Democrats had expected a smoothly choreographed display of party unity that would contrast with last week's bumpy Republican National Convention in Cleveland.
 Democrat's hopes were dashed Sunday when DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz resigned under pressure over hacked emails.
Party leaders showcase their nominees, and the prime-time speeches by the candidates and prominent politicians win some of the largest television audiences of the campaign.
Democrats also will adopt the party's platform, which lays out policy principles but has no binding effect.
The Wells Fargo Center, home to the NHL's Philadelphia Flyers and the NBA's Philadelphia 76ers, is the convention site.
Democrats are hoping that city's historical role in the founding of American democracy will serve as a powerful backdrop for the themes they'll highlight.
At the GOP convention, a striking number of prominent Republican lawmakers and party leaders were nowhere to be seen, including the party's previous two presidents and its two most recent presidential nominees.
The convention was rocked Sunday before it even began by fallout from 19,000 hacked Democratic National Committee emails published online, some suggesting the party favored Clinton over Sanders in the primary.
First lady Michelle Obama is set to speak Monday.
Kaine, who made his debut as Clinton's running mate at a joint appearance Saturday, will give a speech introducing himself to the country.
The well-dressed men who gathered in Cleveland's Ritz-Carlton bar after Donald Trump's speech accepting the Republican nomination for president prefer the term Europeanists, ''alt-right, or even white nationalists.
Several gathered in the luxury hotel well after midnight following Trump's Thursday address, a fiery appeal they said helped push the Republican Party closer to their principles.
On his social media accounts, he posted pictures of himself wearing a red Trump "Make America Great Again" hat at Quicken Loans Arena.
Asked to respond to the white supremacists presence at the convention, campaign spokesman Jason Miller said: Donald Trump has a lifetime record of inclusion and has publicly rebuked groups who seek to discriminate against others on numerous occasions.
Sean Spicer, chief strategist for the Republican National Committee, said convention organizers release credentials in large blocks to state delegations, special guests and media outlets.
"Nearly 180,000 illegal immigrants with criminal records, ordered deported from our country, are tonight roaming free to threaten peaceful citizens," Trump charged in his speech.
 a message, combined with the Trump campaign's repeated brushes with white supremacist material on social media, has drawn criticism from Republican leaders.
There are no indications Trump himself has consciously courted these groups, but the series of errors, compounded by Trump's muddled condemnation of supremacist supporters early in the campaign, have forced allies to answer uncomfortable questions as Republican leaders try to improve the party's standing with minority voters.
Spencer and a handful of like-minded friends, most wearing convention credentials and Trump paraphernalia, said the nativist overtones — and the series of tweets over the last year — marked a clear nod to them.
A hospital treating four people wounded by an ax-and-knife-wielding man who attacked people on a German train last week says two of the victims remain in intensive case.
Wuerzburg's university hospital said in a statement Monday that "the state of health of all patients has stabilized but the risk of complications remains substantial."
Officials say the man who blew himself up near a music festival in the Bavarian town of Ansbach, wounding 12 others, was known to police for low-level drug offenses.
An emergency response coordinator says paramedics working at a music festival in Ansbach were quick to react to the blast that killed the attacker and wounded 12 people in the Bavarian town late Sunday.
Bavaria police said in a statement Monday morning that security staff noticed the man with the backpack near the entrance of the concert site in Ansbach, where some 2,500 people were listening to music bands on Sunday night around 9:45 p.m.
According to witness accounts he briefly leaned forward at 10:10 p.m.
When she was about 14, Hillary Clinton says, she wrote to NASA volunteering for astronaut training.
More than a half-century later, and after much hard work, much determination, and most of all, many, many obstacles — some undeniably of her own making — Clinton is no closer to actual space travel.
Americans first knew her as a governor's working wife in Arkansas, then as the nation's first lady — half of Bill Clinton's "Buy one, get one free" bargain.
Touched by scandal, she nonetheless emerged to become a hard-working senator, the first first lady to gain elected office.
 she reinvented herself again, becoming Obama's secretary of state, traveling to 112 countries.
 there's also a sense of impenetrability, exacerbated by Clinton's penchant for secrecy — a characteristic that's led to her greatest vulnerability now: the email scandal.
Comedy aside, the ambition tag has dogged Clinton, 68, as if it were a bad quality rather than a necessity.
The satirical website The Onion captured the irony: "Hillary Clinton Is Too Ambitious To Be The First Female President."
