With Clinton largely absent from the convention stage - she made a brief cameo on stage Wednesday night after Obama spoke - the convention speakers in Philadelphia urged Americans to see beyond what Bill Clinton called the "cartoon" of Clinton created by adversaries.
Wasserman Schultz , D-Fla., who has always been under fire for the appearance of partiality toward Clinton in the Democratic presidential primaries, announced her resignation in a statement Sunday afternoon.

These recently leaked emails are providing political gold for both Republicans and Democrats running against Wasserman Schultz.
Sanders said he was still committed to ensuring Clinton was elected in November over Trump, however he said Wasserman Schultz should be ousted.

Germany has been rattled by four attacks in the past two weeks, three of which authorities say have been carried out by asylum seekers or refugees inspired by Islamist extremism. Merkel, who usually spends the beginning of her summer vacation visiting the Wagner opera festival in Bayreuth and then afterward hiking in the Alps, has thus far spent the break at her home in the Uckermark region outside Berlin.
