Day 4 of the Dems in Philly: Hillary’s Coronation

Thursday night Hillary Clinton officially accepted the Democratic nomination for president.

I know this has been said over and over, but her being the first female nominee was a major moment in American history. And journalistical objectivity aside, as a woman, it felt great to watch.

Embracing that she is the first woman is also so much stronger than when they tried everybody to make it forget eight years ago.

Hillary was in full attack mode against Donald Trump, but also repeatedly emphasized that she wants to be a president of unity – for all “Democrats, Republicans and Independents.”

Before Hillary took to the stage (and before she was introduced via a video produced by none other than Shonda Rhimes), her daughter Chelsea spoke.

Chelsea did a good job of humanizing her mother, who often appears hard to relate to thanks to living under Secret Service protection for the last decades. And boy, who knew how much Chelsea liked dinosaurs.

Given that Donald Trump has recently criticized the military, it gave the Dems and Hillary the unique opportunity to show nationalism and defend the military and veterans. A retired 4-star general gave a speech more fitting two the Republican convention.

And then there was a touching but forceful attack against Donald Trump by a muslim father whose son – an Army caiptan – died in Iraq.
