Hillary Clinton embraced history last night as the first woman to become the presumptive nominee for president of a major political party. Clinton spoke to a huge crowd Tuesday in New York and encouraged supporters of Bernie Sanders to come together to beat Donald Trump in the general election.

Democratic Party strategist Angela Rye and GOP political analyst Paris Dennard join Here & Now‘s Robin Young to discuss.
