Bill Clinton caught napping during Hillary's historic nomination speech

Hillary Clinton marked her place in history on Thursday night by accepting the Democratic presidential nomination, fighting to shift perceptions that have dogged her for more than two decades on a global stage as first lady, US senator and secretary of state. We did not hear back from the Trump campaign.

"Am I not allowed to respond?".

"I have joined the political arena so that the powerful can no longer beat up on people who cannot defend themselves".

Donald Trump's son has accused Barack Obama of plagiarizing a line from his Republication convention speech when the US President spoke at the Democratic event this week. Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump saw his popularity rise after their convention, and most polls during the week showed him leading Hillary Clinton. "And this is totally unfit for the leadership of this lovely country". But it is a strong sign that there are plenty within the Democratic Party who are unhappy with Clinton as the nominee. On the first night of the convention, Anastasia Somoza, who has cerebral palsy, slammed Trump as a man who "shouts, bullies and profits off of the vulnerable Americans".

The crowd also heard from Khizr Khan, an American Muslim whose son was killed in USA military service. His sacrifice - and that of Khizr and Ghazala Khan - should always be honoured.

Yet her challenge here is demonstrated by the fact that even some local Democrats say their party shares in the blame for rural America's economic and social plight.

"There's something else that my mother taught me: Public service is about service, and as her daughter I've had a special window in to how she serves", Chelsea Clinton said. "That's just not how I was raised".

She told stories of her childhood and was introduced by her daughter.

During the speech, Khan's wife, Ghazala, stood quietly by his side. "You do the arithmetic", the president said four years ago.

"It's true", she said.

"Both groups have strong feelings about what's going on", she said. But here's the sad truth: "There is no other Donald Trump.This is it".

But Trump, he's a businessman. I work very, very hard. "I thought she'd give me a big, fat, lovely congratulations", he said. Trump had led 42 percent to 41 percent last week. But it's perhaps a significant shortfall in the eyes of one person, in particular: Mr. Trump, who had taken to TwitterTWTR 2.02 % to brag about his speech's "great" ratings last weekend.

What political news is the world searching for on Google and talking about on Twitter?

Her 2008 her campaign ran an ad that asked whom voters wanted to answer 3:00 a.m. phone call to the White House after things have gone south in a little-known faraway hot spot.

But most of her New Jersey donors - who have raised more than $5 million for Clinton so far, placing New Jersey as the 12th largest source of cash among the 50 states and the District of Columbia - take comfort in early projections showing Trump's narrow, long-odds path to the 270 Electoral College votes needed to win the election. "I think he's a threat to democracy as we've known it in modern times".

Farner had just made a rubbing of the name of his cousin, Calvin Wilson, who was killed in action in February 1967. If you believe that every man, woman, and child in America has the right to affordable health care, join us!
