Clinton ready to sell herself in biggest political moment

Tonight is the main event at the Democratic National Convention, as Hillary Clinton will deliver her acceptance speech.



Last night, President Obama insisted that no one else has ever been more qualified to become president, including him or Bill Clinton.



Obama said, "I'm ready to pass the baton and do my part as a private citizen. So, this year, in this election, I'm asking you to join me to reject cynicism, reject fear, to summon what's best in us to elect Hillary Clinton as the next president of the United States."



President Obama told Democrats Clinton will do the job "without resorting to torture or banning entire religions from entering our country."



Former New York Mayor and business magnate Mike Bloomberg went a step further in his attack on Donald Trump, calling him a ""dangerous demagogue."



Clinton's running mate Tim Kaine also aimed at Trump's credibility saying, "Do you really believe him? Donald Trump's whole career says you better not."
