Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton spoke tonight to conclude the fourth and final night of the 2016 Democratic National Convention.
Prior to taking the stage, Clinton tweeted out, "I’m so grateful to everyone who made this moment possible."
About to head out and accept your nomination for president. I’m so grateful to everyone who made this moment possible. -H— Hillary Clinton (@HillaryClinton) July 29, 2016

After officially becoming the first female nominee for a major American party Tuesday, Clinton is appearing at the DNC for the third time this week. On Tuesday, she gave a brief acceptance speech via satellite. "What an incredible honor that you have given me. I can't believe we just put the biggest crack in that glass ceiling yet. If there are any little girls out there who stayed up late to watch: I may become the first woman president, but one of you is next."
Clinton made another surprise Wednesday night, joining President Barack Obama on stage after his rousing speech for some A1 finger pointing.
Thursday's theme for the DNC is "Stronger Together."
Clinton didn't hold back calling into question Trump's vision for America. "He wants us to fear the future and fear each other," she said, before quoting Franklin D. Roosevelt. "The only thing we have to fear is fear itself."
She also did her best to bring comfort to supporters of Bernie Sanders. "I want you to know I've heard you, your cause is our cause," she declared.
Of course, Clinton's speech did not come without some dissension. There were a handful of protesters in the hallway of the building booing Clinton:
While Marco Rubio could have sworn he heard boos and catcalls from his couch.

Other people in the audience protested with "no more war" signs.
Clinton's speech had cutting digs at her GOP opponent Donald Trump. She mocked his frequent use of the slogan "America First" by bringing up the fact that most of his Trump-branded products are made not in America, but overseas.
"He...talks a big game about putting America First," Clinton said. "Please explain to me what part of America First leads him to make Trump ties in China, not Colorado. Trump suits in Mexico, not Michigan. Trump furniture in Turkey, not Ohio. Trump picture frames in India, not Wisconsin. Donald Trump says he wants to make America great again—well, he could start by actually making things in America again."
She also hammered on Trump's propensity to lose his cool "at the slightest provocation."
"Imagine him in the Oval Office facing a real crisis," she asked the crowd. "A man you can bait with a tweet is not a man we can trust with nuclear weapons."
Clinton ended her speech by quoting the musical Hamilton, and transitioned into talking about the real-life Founding Fathers.
"Let our legacy be about 'planting seeds in a garden you never get to see,'" she said, quoting from the Hamilton number "The World Was Wide Enough." "That's why we're here...not just in this hall, but on this Earth. The Founders showed us that. And so have many others since. They were drawn together by love of country, and the selfless passion to build something better for all who follow. That is the story of America. And we begin a new chapter tonight. Yes, the world is watching what we do. Yes, America's destiny is ours to choose. So let's be stronger together. Looking to the future with courage and confidence. Building a better tomorrow for our beloved children and our beloved country. When we do, America will be greater than ever."
Immediately after the speech, Clinton's primary opponent Bernie Sanders tweeted his congratulations, and sent a message of unity that was likely aimed at those of his supporters who have been protesting during the Convention.
Michelle Obama, who wowed the convention on Monday with her own well-received speech, praised Clinton as well.
FLOTUS' husband was also won over.
Unsurprisingly, the candidate's husband was as well.
Trump, on the other hand, was disappointed that his opponent did not talk about "Radical Islam."
The Trump campaign issued a statement calling the speech "an insulting collection of clichés."
