RE: What were the major highlights of Democratic Convention Day 4?
Finally the last night of the Democratic Convention happened. A full slate of speakers, including state leaders, some Republicans and her daughter, Chelsea Clinton, preceded Hillary Clinton’s appearance on Democratic Convention Day 4.
Here are the major highlights:
1. Mrs. Hillary Clinton accepted the nomination for the President shortly before 11:00 eastern time wearing a white suit and a wide smile.
2. Chelsea Clinton introducing her mother as “my wonderful, thoughtful, hilarious mother” — in starkly personal terms.
3. John R. Allen, the retired four-star Marine Corps general who commanded American forces in Afghanistan and elsewhere, delivered a thundering endorsement of Mrs. Clinton because, he said, “the stakes are enormous” not to. Flanked by fellow veterans, Mr. Allen said that Mrs. Clinton would use all the “instruments of American power” to defeat ISIS, strengthen NATO, and honor its treaties.
4. “I’m Michael Jordan, and I’m here with Hillary,” Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, the N.B.A. hall of famer, deadpanned as he appraised a perplexed convention hall.
