“Hillary will make us stronger together. You know it because she spent a lifetime doing it,” Bill said in his address to the Democratic National Convention here, hours after the party nominated his wife Hillary as its presidential candidate for the November elections.
“She is still the best darn change-maker I have ever known,” the 69-year-old former president said in a mesmerising speech, asking his countrymen to vote and elect Hillary as the next US president.
Scripting history, the 68-year-old former secretary of state on Wednesday became the first woman to win the presidential nomination of a major US party as she secured the backing of the Democrats to set up an epic clash with Republican rivalin the November polls.
Bill, who was the 42nd president of the US from 1993 to 2000, said, “Hillary is uniquely qualified to seize the opportunities and reduce the risks we face. And she is still the best darn change-maker I have ever known. You could drop her into any trouble spot, pick one, come back in a month and somehow, some way she will have made it better. That is just who she is”.
