History made Inspiring quotes by women at Democratic National Convention
They suspect Clinton is corrupt, motivated not dissimilar to Trump by self-interest, and seek to break a system in Washington they no longer recognize as their own.
Hillary Clinton on Thursday night became the first woman to accept the presidential nomination for a major political party in the history of the United States.
Her acceptance speech was the culmination of a Democratic convention that has offered a sharp contrast, in style and substance, to the Republican convention in Cleveland a week ago. Obama noted progress the country has made and said Clinton would take it further.
Hillary Clinton will address multiple audiences on Thursday when she takes the stage to deliver the biggest political speech of her life.
"Our children are watching and the president we elect is going to be their president too", Clinton said, using a talking point that echoes one of her commercials, which in turn echoes a Jeb Bush primary commercial, about how children shouldn't be exposed to Donald Trump. "Instead we will build an economy where everyone who wants a good job can get one", said Clinton, to thunderous applause. Women who support Clinton are certainly trying to make the case that every woman in America should be invested in the outcome of the election.
As they were plunged into darkness and forced to use phones as torches, Clinton whips encouraged loyalists to chant "U-S-A, U-S-A" to drown out dissent - the same jingoistic tactic employed by Donald Trump.
"I say to them: 'You got to be patient, '" Francis said.
Pence spokesman Marc Lotter tells the The Associated Press, "Our events are open to everyone and we are looking into the alleged incident".
Later she took issue with Trump's comments about the military and his supposed superior knowledge about ISIS. "No, Donald, you don't", Clinton said.
"A man you can bait with a tweet", Clinton said in her peroration, "is not a man you can trust with nuclear weapons". She won the nomination after defeating her principal rival, Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders, in the state-by-state process of primary and caucus votes. "I just don't want you to be shot by someone who shouldn't have a gun in the first place". Sanders delegates wearing neon-yellow shirts with the slogan "Enough Is Enough" were sprinkled through the arena.

Democrats are celebrating the former secretary of state's coronation as their party's presidential nominee here in Philadelphia at the Democratic National Convention this week, but they know they've got a fight on their hands in the months to come.
Clinton's top advisers told the New York Times she would highlight the moment of reckoning that they said the country faces - the path of division laid out by Republicans or a way forward, "stronger together".
- Americans don't say, "I alone can fix it" but "we'll fix it together". So let's be stronger together.
Hillary Clinton was never quite going to be able to match the speech of Barack Obama.
At its core, Clinton's speech, like the Democratic convention that it brought to a close, was about what it means to be American - and what it doesn't.
Rather, she's the tough, knowledgeable, practical, battle-tested politician who is now all that stands between him and the White House.
Trump, a NY real estate investor and former reality-TV star, has disparaged illegal Mexican immigrants as "rapists" and criminals, promised to build a wall on the southern border (and make Mexico pay for it), and proposed banning Muslims from entering the U.S. He has called himself the "law and order" candidate, echoing Richard M. Nixon in the turbulent 1968 election. "I will always be profoundly grateful to all of you and to the American people for the last eight years". He had been he first African American president; she could become the first woman to occupy the Oval Office.
"Happy for grandmothers and little girls and everyone in between".
"After all", she added. "Bonds of trust and respect are fraying", according to excerpts released by her campaign.
"The truth is, through all of these years of public service, the service part has always come easier to me than the public part".
"The family I'm from, well, no one had their name on big buildings", Clinton said.
