DENVER - The Democratic National Convention's first act is over and today, for a short time, the spotlight moves from Barack Obama to his former opponent, Hillary Rodham Clinton.

With broad and bright strokes, Michelle Obama painted a picture of her husband, giving an intimate look at what makes this first time senator ready to be President.

But before he accepts the nomination, a second leading lady takes the stage.

On Monday, Hillary Clinton told supporters it's time to move on.

"Unite behind Barack Obama," she said.

But planned demonstrations and talk of chaos on the convention floor expose a potential problem for Obama's candidacy.

No doubt, the long primary fight divided Democrats and almost left the party broken, but some of the party faithful here say they sense the mood is shifting.

And as the election draws nearer, they say more and more Democrats will rally behind Barack Obama come November.

Party leaders and Obama supporters say unity will come, but will the bitter wounds heal in time for the elections?
