Clinton Makes History

Hillary Clinton accepts her party’s nomination for the presidency.

On July 28, 2016, Hillary Clinton became the first woman in United States history to be nominated for the presidency by a major political party.

“It is with humility, determination, and boundless confidence in America’s promise that I accept your nomination for President of the United States,” the former Secretary of State said. It was the final night of the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and the crowd at the Wells Fargo Center was electrified.

Throughout the week, Democratic politicians, public figures, delegates, and celebrities came to Philadelphia to express support for the former Secretary of State.

“I hope that Clinton will lead America to higher heights,” said Representative John Lewis of Georgia, “and see that all of our young people get the best education.” Lewis, who is also a civil rights leader and an author, worked with Martin Luther King Jr. to help organize the 1963 March on Washington.


An enthusiastic and diverse group of supporters filled the arena during speeches by President Barack Obama, Vice President Joe Biden, and First Lady Michelle Obama, among others.

“In this election,” the First Lady said on the opening night of the convention, “there is only one person who I . . . believe is truly qualified to be President of the United States, and that is our friend Hillary Clinton.”


On Thursday night, Chelsea Clinton and Katy Pery, among others, took the stage. Excitement in the arena built until Hillary Clinton appeared in a white suit. White was the color worn by women who fought for the right to vote in the early 20th century.

“America's destiny is ours to choose,” Clinton said. “Let’s build a better tomorrow for our beloved children and our beloved country. And when we do, America will be greater than ever.”

On Friday morning, Clinton and her vice presidential running mate, Virginia Senator Tim Kaine, headed out on the campaign trail. They held rallies in Pennsylvania and Ohio, two states that will be crucial in the presidential election. The “jobs-focused” bus tour is aimed at appealing to voters who are struggling economically.

Clinton will face Republican Donald Trump, a New York City businessman, in the general election on November 8, 2016.
