(TriceEdneyWire.com) — Former First Lady, U. S. Senator and Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton has finally won enough delegates to make history as the first woman to become the presidential nominee of a major political party.
“Thanks to you we’ve reached a milestone,” Clinton told a wildly applauding and cheering crowd in Brooklyn, N.Y. Tuesday night. “The first time in our nation’s history that a woman will be a major party’s nominee. Tonight’s victory is not about one person. It belongs to generations of men and women who struggled and sacrificed and made this moment possible. We all owe so much to those who came before. And tonight belongs to all of you.”
