There is no level of corruption that seems to matter. There is nothing she can do that will turn the media against her. Hillary Clinton makes history as first female presidential nominee – but is met with fury by Bernie Sanders supporters who walk out of Democratic convention.
Hillary Clinton became the first woman to earn a major party’s presidential nomination on Tuesday evening as Democratic delegates officially gave her the votes she needed to win the election.
‘History,’ was what she tweeted with a photo of herself on stage at a rally.
Bernie Sanders made a surprise appearance and moved to have Clinton named the nominee by acclimation after she had more than enough votes to win.
He joined his home state of Vermont, which passed the first time around in the roll call vote, for the history-making moment.
‘I move that all votes, all votes cast by delegates be reflected in the official record, and I move that Hillary Clinton be selected as the nominee of the Democratic Party for president of the United States,’ he said.
The gesture was to be a signal of unity and reconciliation during the fractured Democratic Convention.
His delegates, on the hand, were not so moved to accept the result of the vote. A group of them walked out in protest after Clinton officially won the nomination.
Not that it will stop this steamroller, but Julian Assange: ‘A lot more material’ coming on US elections. I wonder if he will include material on Trump this time.
