Among the people party leaders are counting on to unify the Democratic party at its convention in Philadelphia this week is Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren. She delivered one of the prime speeches Monday night, coming right after First Lady Michelle Obama and before Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders.

WBUR's senior political reporter Anthony Brooks, who is part of our team covering the convention in Philadelphia this week, joined Morning Edition to discuss the opening night's speeches.
