Obama urges Americans to back Clinton, slams Trump

If you've watched the entire Democratic convention so far, and not just the big late-hour speeches, you've seen a constant drumbeat about Hillary the mom, the children's advocate, the woman who bounced back after the defeat of Hillary-care to win the enactment of health insurance for children. "Democracy isn't a spectator sport. What makes us American, what makes us patriots, is what's in here".

President Obama praised Clinton, whom he beat in 2008 to clinch the the Democratic nomination. "It was tough, because Hillary was tough".

"Bernie, your campaign inspired millions of Americans, particularly the young people who threw their hearts and souls into our primary", Clinton said.

Her high-stakes remarks follow a rousing speech by US President Barack Obama, who said there had never been a man or woman more qualified than Mrs Clinton to serve as president.

Clinton didn't speak in 1992 when her husband was first nominated as a presidential candidate.

In an implicit attack on Trump, Obama said traditional American values held by his grandparents - such as modesty, honesty and kindness - continue today and that "anyone who threatens our values, whether fascists or communists or jihadists or homegrown demagogues, will always fail in the end".

"He loses his cool at the slightest provocation.Imagine if you dare, imagine him in the Oval Office facing a real crisis", Clinton said. Bill Clinton addressed the DNC Tuesday night, while first lady Michelle Obama spoke Monday night.

Wednesday night, the convention heard from President Obama, who gave a glowing review of Clinton's performance as a Secretary of State.

"We are not a fragile or frightful people", he added. We're not a frightful people.

"Our power doesn't come from some self-declared savior promising that he alone can restore order as long as we do things his way". We don't look to be ruled. On Thursday, Clinton's goal was to paint a more hopeful, optimistic vision of a nation that comes together and is, as her campaign slogan puts it, "stronger together".

"I won't be surprised to hear her come out with strength and grace", said Janine Boyd, an OH state representative from the Cleveland area.

At the end of Obama's speech, Clinton - the first woman to win the presidential nomination of a major United States political party - arrived on stage to deafening shouts from the party faithful. But you can be damn sure I'm never gonna lose because I've been outworked. Virginia Senator Tim Kaine, a relative unknown, got his first prime-time introduction to a national audience as he accepted the nomination as Clinton's running mate.
