Democratic National Convention

Hillary Clinton shatters a digital glass ceiling during DNC appearance

A video montage played at the Democratic National Convention on Tuesday featuring every single president, from George Washington to Barack Obama. At the end, there was a twist: The screen shattered, revealing a beaming Hillary Clinton.

Fresh off her historic nomination, Clinton appeared via satellite from her home in New York, joined by dozens of revelers. "What an incredible honor you have given me," Clinton said to wild cheers in Philadelphia. "I cannot believe we just put the biggest crack in the glass ceiling yet." She thanked her supporters, and told them "this is really your victory." Clinton also had a special message for 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."
