Hillary's Night at the DNC
Hillary Clinton has accepted the Democratic Party's presidential nomination last night in Philadelphia, making history as the first woman to be chosen to run for the highest office in the land by a major party in the United States, ABC's MEGHAN KENEALLY, LIZ KREUTZ and JOSH HASKELL report. "Today, we've reached a milestone in our nation's march toward a more perfect union: The first time that a major party has nominated a woman for President," Clinton said. "Standing here as my mother's daughter's, and my daughter's mother, I'm so happy this day has come." http://abcn.ws/2auyZ3H FULL TEXT: http://abcn.ws/2a8DL4o
The wild week of the Democratic National Convention brought anger and unpredictability, loud disagreements and flashes of patriotism and a party exposing its divisions and anxieties for the nation to see, ABC's RICK KLEIN writes. In other words, it revealed America. And when Hillary Clinton made it all official, accepting the Democratic nomination Thursday night, she presided over a party that looked stronger, and potentially bigger, than it did just a few days ago. "Powerful forces are threatening to pull us apart," Clinton said. "And just as with our Founders, there are no guarantees. It's truly is up to us. We have to decide whether we will all work together so we can all rise together." Hillary Clinton used her convention to stage-manage a reintroduction. http://abcn.ws/2aOry6n

The Donald Trump campaign said Hillary Clinton's Democratic National Convention speech was "delivered from a fantasy universe," in a scathing rebuke against the newly-minted Democratic presidential nominee, ABC's BRIAN MCBRIDE notes. "Clinton's speech was an insulting collection of clichés and recycled rhetoric," Trump's Senior Policy Advisor, Stephen Miller, said late Thursday night. "She spent the evening talking down to the American people she's looked down on her whole life." Earlier in the evening, Clinton spoke before thousands at the Wells Fargo Arena in Philadelphia to formally accept her party's nomination. Shortly after Clinton spoke, Trump fired off a series of Tweets, one of which blasted his election rival for "corruption" and said "devastation" follows her wherever she goes. http://abcn.ws/2a45p71 TRUMP VS.

Two days after the candidacy of Bernie Sanders officially came to an end, supporters of the Vermont senator made their displeasure known on the final night of the Democratic National Convention – holding up signs saying "liar" and chanting "no more war" during speeches. Across the Wells Fargo Center, many Sanders' delegates also wore neon yellow, glow-in-the-dark t-shirts with the words, "Enough is Enough" written on them. However, Sanders delegates received a text message from the Sanders organization asking them to be respectful throughout the evening. Despite the message, the delegation from California unfurled a large banner that said "Wikileaks" -- in reference to the DNC email leak scandal -- during a video introduction of Clinton. During Clinton's speech there was sporadic shouting from the crowd that was quickly drowned out by chants of "Hillary." ABC's SHUSHANNAH WALSHE, ADAM KELSEY, MARYALICE PARKS and BRAD MIELKE have more. http://abcn.ws/2auNPaE
