VIDEO: History Is Made As Hillary Clinton Accepts Presidential NominationPosted:
PHILADELPHIA - Hillary Clinton made history Thursday night as she accepted the presidential nomination for the Democratic Party on the final night of the Democratic National Convention.
Every day this week the excitement has been building all for Thursday night, the final night of the Democratic National Convention as Hillary Clinton took the stage for the very first time to speak as the Official Presidential Nominee for the Democratic Party.
“It is with humility, determination and boundless confidence in America's promise that I accept your nomination," said Clinton.
For almost an entire hour, the country listened as the first woman to be nominated by a major party for President of the United States took the convention stage.
Clinton touched on everything from her opposition, to her life, and of course, on all the work she hopes to accomplish in the oval office.
“Well, I will be a President for Democrats, Republicans, Independents, for the struggling, the striving, the successful, for all of those who vote for me and for all of those who don’t, for all Americans together," said Clinton.
But it was the overall message of the week-long convention that took the stage Thursday night.
“Don’t believe anyone who says I alone can fix it," Clinton said.
"The message of the convention, and of Hillary Clinton, is being stronger together and when we’re together, when we bring people together we really can be stronger together," said NJ Delegate, Kevin Brown.
“We have everybody coming together here under this big tent, Bernie supporters, Hillary supporters all with this really climatic moment we’re at right now. We’ve made a lot of progress and we’re ready for this final 100 days until election day," said Senator Cory Booker.
“Let’s be stronger together, my fellow Americans. Let’s look to the future with courage and confidence, America will be greater than ever," said Clinton.
