Hillary Clinton Nominated Amid Protests From Sanders Supporters

(Worthy News) - Hillary Clinton was formally declared the Democratic presidential nominee on Tuesday evening, amid protests from supporters of Sen. Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.) and efforts of party leaders to unify Democrats behind the former secretary of state.

Former president Bill Clinton delivered a speech chronicling his first meeting with Hillary through her time working at the State Department, offering a personal perspective of his wife and highlights of her political resume in Tuesday night’s keynote address at the Democratic National Convention.

“She is still the best darn change-maker I have ever known,” Clinton said of his wife on the second night of the DNC in Philadelphia. “You can drop her into any trouble spot—pick one—come back in a month, and somehow, some way, she will have made it better.”

Sanders put Hillary Clinton over the top in a roll-call vote on Tuesday when he joined with the Vermont delegation to declare that all votes be moved to nominate the Clinton for president. Clinton became the first woman to be nominated for president by a major party. [ Source ]
