Bill Clin­ton backs ‘best friend’ Hil­lary

Daily Trust - - GOLDEN HARVEST -

For­mer US Pres­i­dent Bill Clin­ton has set out the case why his wife and “best friend” Hil­lary should lead the na­tion.

He told the Demo­cratic con­ven­tion in Philadel­phia that she was the “best darn change­maker I’ve ever known”.

In a very per­sonal speech, he spoke warmly about how they met and her ded­i­ca­tion to pub­lic ser­vice.

Hours ear­lier, his wife be­came the first wo­man to be of­fi­cially nom­i­nated for pres­i­dent by any ma­jor US party. Mrs Clin­ton ended the night with a video mes­sage, say­ing: “I can’t be­lieve we just put the big­gest crack in that glass ceil­ing yet.

“And if there are any lit­tle girls out there who stayed up late to watch, let me just say, I may be­come the first wo­man pres­i­dent but one of you is next.”
