Clinton shatters glass ceiling

There was but one theme to Tuesday's Democratic National Convention, the nomination of the first female presidential candidate by a major party in the nation's history.

The moment came early in the evening as South Dakota put former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton over the top in the roll call vote. In a moment of unity, Bernie Sanders, her rival for the nomination, moved that Clinton be nominated by acclimation as he spoke from the convention floor as a member of the Vermont delegation.

Clinton spoke to the convention via satellite after her husband gave a personal testimony of their life together.

From CNN:

"What an incredible honor that you have given me, and I can't believe we just put the biggest crack in that glass ceiling yet," Clinton said via satellite after a video montage showed the faces of all 44 male presidents before shattering like glass to reveal Clinton waiting to address the convention from New York.
