Hillary Clinton makes history Tuesday night, June 7, 2016, effectively clinching the Democratic presidential nomination, a first for a woman. Clinton speaks to a victory rally in New York soon after New Jersey was declared in her column, but while votes were still being counted in California and four other states.
Clinton walks a fine line in her speech by not offending Bernie Sanders supporters, who are still holding out hope that California will be theirs.
To every little girl who dreams big: Yes, you can be anything you want--even president. Tonight is for you. -H pic.twitter.com/jq7fKlfwGV-- Hillary Clinton (@HillaryClinton) June 8, 2016
