Alison King at the DNC: Day 4

Whether you love Hillary Clinton, hate her or fall somewhere in the middle, it can't be denied that Thursday night in Philadelphia was historic.

On the final night of the Democratic National Convention, Clinton officially became the first female presidential nominee for a major American political party.

"It is with humility, determination and boundless confidence in America's promise that I accept your nomination for president of the United States," she said to roars of applause.

The DNC got off to a shaky start for Clinton, but the party is beginning to coalesce around the nominee.

At the convention, Clinton's former Democratic opponent urged his supporters to unite with Clinton against Republican nominee Donald Trump, who he called a demagogue.

"I want to thank Bernie Sanders," she said Thursday night. "Your campaign inspired millions of Americans."

Clinton made perfectly clear that she will have no problem going head to head with Trump, spending much of her speech criticizing the Republican nominee.

"Do not believe anyone who says 'I, alone, can fix it,'" Clinton said of Trump. "Americans don't say 'I, alone, can fix it.' We say 'We'll fix it together!'"
