Democrats brought the drama to Pennsylvania and we're only a day in.

Big name political stars -- including Hillary Clinton's former rival Sen. Bernie Sanders, Sen. Elizabeth Warren and First Lady Michelle Obama -- took the stage Monday, but it was the action on the floor that created the most fireworks.

Reeling from the Fallout



The Democratic convention did not get off to a smooth start on Monday.

It started with a last-minute switch of the opening speaker. DNC chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz, who announced that she would be resigning at the end of the week after the convention, decided not to be the one to gavel the convention into session because of the drama surrounding the Democratic National Committee's email leak, which appears to show party officials showing support of Clinton over Sanders.

Instead, Baltimore mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake formally started the convention. And at first, she forgot to use the actual gavel.

Beyond that, the first three hours were full of outbursts and boos from Sanders supporters.

Roll Call Could Get Raucous



The very first hours of the convention were rowdy as the floor broke into jeers throughout several speakers' addresses.

The very first time that Clinton's name was mentioned sparked a round of "Bernie!" chants, which continued for much of the beginning of the program.

The roll call vote of each state is going to pose and even bigger opportunity for any disgruntled Sanders voters to show their displeasure.

Maternal Movement



One of the more emotional moments from tonight's speeches will likely come when "Mothers of the Movement" will take the stage.

The group includes Trayvon Martin's mom Sybrina Fulton, Michael Brown's mother Lezley McSpadden and Eric Garner's mother Gwen Carr among others.

The circumstances of their childrens deaths may be different, but all of the mothers have endorsed Clinton's campaign.

Protests in Philadelphia



Hundreds of protesters took different routes in Philadelphia on Monday and the drama in the city and outside of the convention center seems unlikely to let up.

The demonstrations have generally been bigger than the ones held in Cleveland last week during the Republican National Convention, but like them, there have not been significant reports of violence.

As of Monday night, there were no arrests even though multiple people have been detained, police told ABC.

Bill Clinton Takes the Stage

One of Hillary Clinton's most active surrogates was been her husband, former President Bill Clinton, and now he's headed to the main stage.

He arrived in Philadelphia on Monday and attended a reception for members of Congress before heading out of the facility.

Clinton has a history of making an impact at Democratic National Conventions. His speech at the 2012 convention in Charlotte was lauded after his 48 minute, wonky speech where he made a case for President Obama's re-election.
