Democratic National Convention Day Two: Bill Clinton tells the story of ‘the real’ Hillary Clinton on historic day

What happened on the second day of the Democratic National Convention:

• Former president Bill Clinton sought to humanize his wife with a personal, folksy account of his wife’s lifetime of public service.

Hillary Clinton was officially nominated for president and will be the first woman to lead a major-party ticket. In a show of unity as a member of Vermont’s delegation, Bernie Sanders moved that “Hillary Clinton be selected as the nominee of the Democratic Party for president of the United States.”

• Many speakers celebrated the history making fact of a woman nominee, and Hillary Clinton appeared at the end of the night via video to say to little girls, “I may be the first woman president. But you’re next.”
