Tonight in Philadelphia: It's Up to Hillary Clinton

Hosted by

To what started out as a divided convention, President Obama summed up the week's most important message in three words, "Don't boo. Vote." He acknowledged the troubles of some Americans, but said Hillary Clinton is uniquely qualified to continue the progress made during his eight years. He invoked Ronald Reagan's "shining city on a hill" in contrast to Donald Trump's dark vision of "a divided crime scene." We hear how Joe Biden, Tim Kaine -- even Michael Bloomberg — helped set the stage for tonight's acceptance by the first woman nominee for the White House.
