Hillary Clinton Claims the Democratic Nomination

Hillary Clinton claimed the Democratic presidential nomination on Tuesday night after decisive victories in the New Jersey and New Mexico primaries, and quickly appealed to supporters of Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont to unite with her against Donald J. Trump.
At a rally in Brooklyn, Mrs. Clinton took the stage with her hands clasped over her heart in gratitude, then threw open her arms in joy and savored a long moment as a jubilant crowd waved American flags and chanted “Hillary.”
Reaching for history as she became the first woman to win a major party’s nomination, Mrs. Clinton pledged to build on the achievements of pioneers like the 19th-century leaders at Seneca Falls, N.Y., who began the fight for women’s rights in America.
“Tonight caps an amazing journey — a long, long journey,” Mrs. Clinton said, nearly a century after women won the right to vote nationwide. “We all owe so much to those who came before, and tonight belongs to all of you.”
She also lavished praise on Mr. Sanders, saying that their “vigorous debate” had been “very good for the Democratic Party and America.”

How Hillary Clinton did it the second time around 

Even before the polls closed in New Hampshire, Hillary Clinton knew she was in for a very bad night.
The establishment worrywart caucus was freaking out, and the media was rife with speculation of an imminent staff shake-up. Was she once again being set up for a fall, a lumbering front-runner about to be toppled by a charismatic outsider?
Her answer: Get me a bigger plane.
Robby Mook, her penny-pinching campaign manager, blanched. But Clinton insisted that she did not want her aides trickling back to the Brooklyn campaign headquarters, one by one, nursing their dejection. Everyone wo

uld fly together.
As 30 or so aides boarded, Clinton and her husband, former president Bill Clinton, stood at the top of the stairs, shaking each one’s hand and thanking them.

What are we going to call Bill Clinton if Hillary is elected president?

 Hillary Clinton Just Made History. Watch Her Speech Here.

Listen to the candidate as she becomes the presumptive Democratic nominee for the presidential race.

Thirty minutes before polls closed in California, Hillary Clinton gave a victory speech in Brooklyn. Clinton had a total of 2,383 delegates after winning the Democratic primary in New Jersey and secured her spot as the Democratic presidential nominee, making her the first woman to do so.
She even changed her Twitter profile picture.
