Hillary Clinton received a thunderous applause and a downpour of balloons on Thursday, July 28, 2016, as she accepted the Democratic nomination for President of the United States of America. The first woman to be nominated for President by a major political party, this marks a major historic milestone in American history.
 
“And so it is with humility … determination … and boundless confidence in America’s promise … that I accept your nomination for President of the United States!” Hillary stated.
 
Her speech recounted memories of growing up and working hard for opportunities. There is no doubt that she and Bill Clinton were setting the stage for history during their time in Fayetteville, Arkansas in the 1970’s though they may not have thought so at the time. Hillary mentioned her start with Bill and how it paved the way for where she is today - “And Bill, that conversation we started in the law library 45 years ago is still going strong.”

Hillary Clinton formally nominated for President of the United States by the Democratic Party
Former President Bill Clinton recounts their time together in Northwest Arkansas

On the night in which delegates at the Democratic National Convention officially nominated former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton as the party's candidate for president of the United States, former President Bill Clinton recalled the couple's early days, including their first house where they eventually married -- now the Clinton House Museum. 

 
By formally securing the nomination, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton becomes the first woman in the United States to lead a major party's ticket for the White House. 
 
As the keynote speaker Tuesday, Bill Clinton shared stories about their life together in Arkansas, first recounting their time in Fayetteville. Both Clintons taught at the University of Arkansas School of Law and Secretary Clinton founded the first legal aid clinic in Northwest Arkansas before Bill became attorney general. They then would go on to serve as the state's governor and first lady. 
 
In the speech President Clinton said:
“[O]ne day I was driving her to the airport to fly back to Chicago when we passed this little brick house that had a for sale sign on it. And she said, boy, that’s a pretty house. It had 1,100 square feet, an attic, fan and no air conditioner in hot Arkansas, and a screened-in porch.
