This year, as we mark the ninety-sixth anniversary, we do so on the cusp of making women’s history and American history once again. For the first time, a woman has been nominated for President of the United States by a major party. And I believe the next President of the United States will be addressed as ‘Madam President.’ Regardless of how one intends to vote, the extraordinary march of progress and the importance of this moment in our history cannot be denied.
With her acceptance of the Democratic nomination for president, Hillary Clinton has made history. But she is the first to remind us that this election isn't about her or about any individual candidate. This election represents more than a choice between parties - it is a question of whether we will abandon the values and strengths that have always made our nation great or keep faith with them.
We’re here to nominate Hillary Clinton because of her ability, her experience, and her vision for our country. We’re also here to show America why Democrats up and down the ticket are ready to lead.

Let us shine a light for the victims of gun violence, from Aurora to Newtown, to the ‘Emanuel Nine’ to the ‘Orlando Forty-Nine,’ and in all those other places where people ought to be and they gave their lives being where they ought to be. From Alton Sterling and Philando Castile to the five fallen officers in Dallas, and all the many thousands whose stories we didn’t read about in the national news.
From the James Webb Telescope to the ‘W-First Mission’ and Satellite Serving Lab, the employees at NASA Goddard have a proven track record of bringing innovation, new technologies, and economic growth to the private sector that helps America maintain its global leadership in science and technology.
