History-making Clinton hails ‘biggest crack’ in glass ceiling

0

PHILADELPHIA, Pennsylvania: Hillary Clinton on Tuesday told Democrats they had “put the biggest crack” yet in the glass ceiling for women, as she became the first female White House nominee for a major political party. “If there are any little girls out there who stayed up late to watch, let me just say I may become the first woman president, but one of you is next,” she told the convention in Philadelphia in a video message. Earlier the former first lady, senator and secretary of state took a monumental step on her quest to become America’s first female commander-in-chief, by besting party challenger Bernie Sanders. After a tumultuous convention opening, which saw Sanders and Clinton supporters trade jeers and chants, cheers erupted as Clinton passed the 2,382-delegate threshold needed for the nomination. Clinton is expected to address the convention finale in person on Thursday to formally accept the nomination.
