Tuesday, July 26, 2016, is the day that Democrats officially changed history when they voted to make Hillary Clinton the first woman presidential nominee. She rallied enough Democrats at the Democratic National Convention (DNC) to win the nomination. After the official head count was taken, Bill Clinton will be the first former president and spouse to make a speech as the potential first gentleman.
The Clintons have made history tonight, moreover, they hope to move forward and put the unseemly events of the convention’s opening day behind them, and focus on the next four months. Rep. John Lewis of Georgia was one of the Democrats that voted for the former Secretary of State. He believes that she is a strong enough leader to bring the people and America together.
The Democratic presidential nominee and the former President of the U.S. will be focused on regaining the trust of the voters. The Clintons make history with a female presidential nominee and a potential first gentleman in the White House. Various celebrities and lawmakers will most likely discuss their personal beliefs for supporting Clinton as the Democratic presidential nominee.
