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.Sanders, a self-described democratic socialist, has endorsed Clinton, but many of his supporters have not.The Democratic gathering is expected to be a more smoothly choreographed display of unity among Clinton, Sanders and Democratic lawmakers and voters.THE POINTBoth parties use their national conventions to formally nominate candidates for president and vice president. 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. 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.Clinton arrives in Philadelphia with 2,814 delegates to Sanders' 1,893, according to an Associated Press count.
