Hillary Clinton first woman nominee for president

But Bernie Sanders provided the high drama. During the roll call voting, Vermont passed thus positioning themselves to be the last state voting. Bernie entered the hall and joined the Vermont delegates. After Vermont cast their votes, Bernie took the microphone. What would he do, professors, pundits, and politicians wondered. Bernie moved to suspend the normal rules, record the results of the roll call in the official record, and nominate Hillary Clinton as the Democratic nominee for President of the US. That opened the way for the convention chair to call for a voice vote on Clinton's nomination by acclamation. The ayes had it. And thus was history made.
