It's the final day of the Democratic National convention in Philadelphia. Tonight, Hillary Clinton will formally accept her party's presidential nomination.

Last night, President Obama urged the crowd to carry on his legacy, "It's been you who fueled my dogged faith in our future. Even when the odds were great. Even when the road is long." He echoed his 2008 sentiments by bringing back his most famous theme: "Hope in the face in the difficulty, hope in the face of uncertainty, the audacity of hope. America you've vindicated that hope these past eight years."

We check in with our WBUR reporter in Philadelphia and two congressional representatives on their take of the proceedings so far.
