Last night, Hillary Clinton became the official Democratic presidential nominee, and the first woman ever nominated by a major political party for president.

Former President Bill Clinton delivered the keynote address. Overall, his speech — in which he promoted his wife as “the best darn change-maker I ever met in my entire life” — was well received.

NPR's Asma Khalid joins Here & Now's Robin Young to discuss last night's events, an emotional moment between Bernie Sanders and his brother and the speeches President Barack Obama and vice presidential pick Tim Kaine will give this evening.
