ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Democrats nominate U.S. Senator Tim Kaine as vice president by voice vote at the convention in Philadelphia on moments after the gavel went down on Wednesday. Day three of the Democratic National Convention was gaveled to order as Democrats sought to contrast Hillary Clinton's skills with those of Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump. Wednesday's convention events will focus on national security, looking to contrast the 68-year-old former secretary of state's skills with Trump's "unsteady, unfit and dangerous approach," said Clinton campaign chair John Podesta. Kaine will address the convention crowd Wednesday night. Barack Obama will be the highlight speaker as he seeks to boost Clinton's campaign to be the first woman U.S. president, hoping to hand off the White House to a trusted fellow Democrat and stop Trump. Clinton formally secured the Democratic Party's presidential nomination at the party's convention in Philadelphia on Tuesday. She will accept the nomination on the last day of the meeting on Thursday, becoming the Democratic standard-bearer against Trump in the Nov. 8 election.
