Bill Clinton urges voters to back the 'real' Hillary

Bill Clinton urges voters to back the 'real' Hillary

"You know it because she's spent a lifetime doing it. I hope you will do it. I hope you will elect her. Those of us who have more yesterdays than tomorrows tend to care more about our children and grandchildren", Bill argued. We talked to one organization who says their phone has been ringing off the hook since the speech. More partial to pantsuits in her Secretary of State days, Clinton has worn versions from de la Renta, Armani and Susanna Beverly Hills, among others.

Former president, and husband to Hillary, Bill Clinton, made a moving speech during the second day of the Democratic convention, in Philadelphia.

The images used by several papers were captured during Bill Clinton's keynote speech Wednesday evening at the Democratic National Convention, during which he outlined in detail Hillary Clinton's accomplishments as a lawmaker, mother and wife. He cast her as a lifelong champion of social justice, in ways and in places that most people have never seen.

Last election all we heard was "the first black president", and many people voted to put Barack Obama in office for that reason. This really brings it all full circle for me to get a first woman to be nominated as president of the United States of America ... Mrs Clinton initially believed his denial and supported her husband publicly.

"But it was Hillary Clinton, in an interview with Tom Brokaw, who quote "paid tribute" to Ronald Reagan's economic and foreign policy".

He spoke of her work on behalf of poor children, African-American children kept out of schools and imprisoned with adults.

Clinton said he saw Hillary again standing at the opposite end of the library and she was finally staring back at him.

Some of the things that he has said about her over the years are so touching that we couldn't help but gather a few of our favorites to share.

"She's insatiably curious, she's a natural leader, she's a good organizer, and she's the best darn change-maker I ever met in my entire life", he said. "In the spring of 1971, I met a girl", he said.

"As San Antonio Express-News photo editors, who also ran a lead image of Bill Clinton explained", the Chronicle wrote, "the Democratic nominee appeared on screen, rather than in person (as is tradition), which played into the decision".

He had triumphed in speeches to Democratic conventions, and he had bombed. Whether through thick or thin, still or choppy waters, Bill's adoration for his wife and his continual fight to help her (as she helped him!) are simply exemplary.
