The glass ceiling is finally broken in America. The first woman to be nominated for President of the United States is officially Hillary Clinton
Clinton was named the nominee at 6:56 PM, and was nominated by Bernie Sanders
Numerous speeches supported her, especially the First Lady
Controversy over another email scandal caused resignation of the DNC chair
Hillary Clinton is now the first woman to be nominated for President of the United States. In honor of this wonderful achievement, we would like to present the top moments from the convention for Clinton:
The First lady gave an extremely moving speech in support of Hillary, boldly stating “I’m with her!”. The White House has never shied away from supporting Hillary Clinton in this race, helping to stack the cards against the Sanders campaign.
Michelle Obama gave a very passionate address about being a woman in Washington, and how far the family had come and how much her two daughters had grown.
It was an extremely emotional appeal that had little to do with Hillary’s policies.
But, when speaking about Hillary Clinton, Michelle Obama said “what I admire most about Hillary is that she never buckles under pressure. She never takes the easy way out. And Hillary Clinton has never quit on anything in her life.”
Bernie Sanders is a terrific loser. He may have lost this election (likely his last), but he did his duty and spoke very well about Hillary Clinton.
He took the time to prod Trump by saying: “This election is about which candidate understands the real problems facing this country and has offered real solutions – not just bombast, fear-mongering, name-calling and divisiveness.”
Bernie was also extremely candid about his loss and about his feelings toward Hillary Clinton. “It is no secret that Hillary Clinton and I disagree on a number of issues. That’s what this campaign has been about. That’s what democracy is about. But I am happy to tell you that at the Democratic Platform Committee there was a significant coming together between the two campaigns and we produced, by far, the most progressive platform in the history of the Democratic Party.”
In breaking tradition, the Vermont delegation spoke last, represented by Bernie Sanders. He said “I move that Hillary Clinton be selected as the nominee of the Democratic Party for president of the United States”.
3.Debbie Wasserman Schultz Getting Booed Off Stage
By now, Debbie Wasserman Schultz is a household name for her role in the DNC fiasco against Bernie Sanders. She has since resigned her position as chair of the DNC, but she was still set to speak at the convention. She was actually booed off stage by members of the Florida delegation, because she is so strongly despised by the Democratic party now.
4. Another Email Scandal!?
Yes, it seems Hillary cannot catch a break with her emails,a s now a group of Russian hackers have published emails from the DNC. The second email scandal in this election, this has been embarrassing for the Clinton campaign. Thankfully, there are no legal issues with these ones, just evidence of the DNC actively fighting against Bernie Sanders, and fighting for Hillary Clinton.
And here is an extra one for you:
5.Hillary Officially becomes the Nominee
It is truly amazing how far we have come in recent years. In 2008, Hillary Clinton ran for the first time, and received 18 million votes calling them “18 million cracks in the glass ceiling”. Well that ceiling is shattered now, and women everywhere are happy about this symbolic victory.
