Former Michigan Gov. Jennifer Granholm expects the Democratic Party will be united (or at least be on the way to being united) by the end of the DNC

Former Governor Jennifer Granholm says tonight’s roll call vote will give Bernie Sanders supporters a chance to heal.

Sanders delegates booed the mention of Hillary Clinton’s name during the first day of the Democratic National Convention.

Granholm says the Sanders supporters are dealing with a type of grief one gets when, after passionately backing a candidate, you must deal with their losing the election.  

“They got to take some time to be able to absorb that and see it turn,” Granholm told reporters.

The former governor believes the Democratic Party will come together. 

“By the end of this convention I predict that we will be fully united,” Granholm said, before adding, “Or at least well along that way.”

Granholm is a Hillary Clinton supporter who will be speaking Thursday at the Democratic National Convention.
