FROM THIS EPISODE

Today, Hillary Clinton will become the first woman nominated for president by a major political party. Bill Clinton will speak tonight along with the mothers of young black men killed by police. There are many protesters outside — and, inside the Democratic convention is far from unified. We hear a heart-to-heart between delegates still taking different sides.

Democratic Unity: A Reality or a Dream? 40 MIN, 16 SEC

Last night, Michelle Obama electrified the delegates with an appeal for unity behind Hillary Clinton and pointed criticism of Donald Trump. Today, for the first time, the majority of delegates at a major party convention will nominate a woman to run for the White House. Bill Clinton will take up where Michelle Obama and Elizabeth Warren left off — addressing a Democratic Party that’s very different from the one he led. Even this morning, Sanders was booed by some delegates, when he said that voting for Hillary is the only way to defeat Trump. We hear a heart-to-heart between delegates still taking different sides.

The Age of Clinton 10 MIN, 1 SEC

The DNC will make history tonight by nominating for the first time as a major party a woman for the White House. History will also be made by Bill Clinton, who will be the first former president to speak on behalf of his wife, Hillary. Gil Troy, author of The Age of Clinton: America in the 1990’s, has more on the opportunities and possible pitfalls of the evening.
