4:00 pm
it's a different vibe. as the night progresses, although bernie sanders is important and elizabeth warren is important, the biggest feature of the night belongs to michelle obama. a lot of people you can boo. one person you ain't gonna boo is michelle obama. >> what's the most important speech tonight? >> the first lady is probably the most important in terms of motivating the voters and a person who can make a very strong case for hillary clinton, to motivate the obama coalition, women voters, african-american voters. in terms of getting the loud, very small minority of folks who have been boo'ing here, causing trouble here, bernie sanders has a big role to play. he seems prepared to do that. >> john podesta. a big kick-off this hour, campaign chairman, 67 years old, has known hillary clinton for more than 20 years, worked with bill clinton in the white house. chief of staff for crucial years. obviously, this will be -- here he is, coming on out.
4:01 pm
let's listen to john podesta with his crucial speech here, the campaign chair. >> hello, democrats! i want to begin by saying thank you to all of you across the country who have volunteered your time, donated what you could. signed up at hillary you have voted to make hillary clinton the nominee of the democratic party. this is your victory! and to everyone who supported senator sanders, this is your victory, too! i've known bernie since i was a young staffer for senator pat leahy and he was mayor of burlington. he stood up to the special interests and fought to give the working people a fair economy and bigger say. those are the same values that
4:02 pm
he brought to this campaign and our party and our country are better for it. donald trump has different values. he built his career by ripping people off, stiffing contractors and skipping out on his bills through bankruptcy. he is too erratic, dangerous and divisive. with a blue collar dad and a pink collar mom, i've had the honor to serve two great presidents who fought for working people and met the challenges of their time. now, like all of you, i'm working to elect a president who has the experience, vision, values and grit to make progress in these turbulent times. that person is hillary clinton. hillary will be a president who
4:03 pm
gets results. she'll take on powerful special interests in a rigged system to make our economy work for everyone, not just those at the top. and she will be a champion for our children and our families. with your hard work, we can build a better future for everyone. steelworkers and school teachers, farm families and military families, the forgotten middle class and those who have been left out and left behind. and immigrants. people like my family and yours, who struggle to get here, who built this country and who love america. that's who we're fighting for. that's who this election is about. that's why she picked tim kaine as her running mate, a man with a passion for service. and if we work overtime, work overtime for the next 105 days, we will succeed in making history and elect the first woman president of the united
4:04 pm
states! thank you. >> that was john podesta, clinton campaign chairman. i'm back here with my panel. david, we did get the cheers there, tim kaine, hillary clinton. you got the cheers on this floor. >> they did. [ inaudible ] we're going to hear a lot of contrast. >> and not afraid to be critical of trump. coming out erratic and dangerous. those are the sorts of words we'll hear tonight. i imagine they'll pale in comparison to what we'll hear from elizabeth warren. >> we've seen video after video attacking donald trump, which questions hillary clinton's interview on "60 minutes" a positive figure not willing to attack trump. every single surrogate is
4:05 pm
attacking him repeatedly. >> bakari, that stood out last week, about attacking hillary clinton not being for donald trump. are we going to see that as much tonight? more criticizing trump than for her? >> you'll see people attack trump's xenophobic rhetoric, trump university, you won't have the chants of "lock her up" from the floor, a lot of the foul language that may have been seen on signs and posters throughout the arena last week. i would encourage democrats, and i think you would agree with me after you have bernie sanders and after you have elizabeth warren to pivot, to start talking about the new can as in america. we need to steel a mantra from ronald reagan. it's morning in america again, to paint that clear contrast again between what donald trump was last week. >> the bar is very, very high for her. our poll this morning had her coming into this convention.
4:06 pm
she's going to hope for a convention bump. but with the most highest unfavorables since we started doing that poll question here at cnn, the bar high. >> she should be grateful she's running against donald trump. polling between conventions is useless. if we believe the polling, john mccain and mitt romney would both be president of the united states. >> it's significant because this is the first post convention bounce we've seen in nearly two decades. >> that's absolutely not true. >> since 2000, yes, it is. first six-point convention bounce we've seen since 2000. go read cnn's articles. they say that. that is the truth. >> john mccain had a five-point lead on barack obama and lost that election by seven points. if it gives you false hope in this period of time, that's great. it didn't mean anything before and doesn't mean anything now. >> it is true on favorability, terrorism, who is best able to handle the economy.
4:07 pm
he bounced on 15 metrics. it means something when something is happening that hasn't happened since the year 2000. >> independents, coming out of the convention that's where we see the big swing. they swing significantly toward donald trump. she needs to get those back. >> this is a bounce. that's what this is. what we don't know is when hillary clinton gets her bounce, where does the race settle down? >> do you just go back to where you were before? >> there's no doubt we'll continue to look at that after hillary clinton has the opportunity to have her bounce. i do think, though, what we were just discussing before about the what you're going to hear and the balance, yes, you're going to hear as you heard from some surrogates trump attacks. the xlint clinton campaign is very eager, because of the unfavorables, to put hillary clinton out there as someone who understands the economic pain.
4:08 pm
they don't want donald trump to be the only person in this race that gets to own the anger vote. they want her to tap into that in a way that expresses she understands economic from us ration. >> that bernie sanders' job tonight. >> correct. to quickly talk about that bounce again. back in 2000, george bush had an eight-point bounce. we saw al gore, so they neutralized each other. with that being said you brought up the point of senator bernie sanders. i was reading reports that he was still writing it at 6:00 pm. this is his and his alone. i expect a lot of fire works from him today, talking about the issues that were talked about earlier today on a platform. bernie sanders is responsible for the platform. >> one bernie supporter said he's worried when he comes with his full-throated endorsement there that there could be boos from this crowd. >> where you've heard boos is when it's time it's been quiet.
4:09 pm
when he comes out in this crowd, people are going to cheer. bernie sanders approval ratings among hillary clinton supporters are very high. i would be very surprised to hear that. >> even if you do have boos, it is not in any way a ted cruz moment. he is upping his endorsement tonight, whatever he has to do to get people on board. >> bernie sanders does not have complete control of bernie sanders supporters. it doesn't translate that way. he's doing every bit he can right now. you're right, i think he will amp it up and accelerate it to try to bring them aboard. there are die-hard bernie sanders supporters that don't want to hear that. >> the next speaker will be linda sanchez. a lot of people speaking spanish today. >> well, yeah. this party is a big tent party this is not anything that we do that's patronizing or woo
4:10 pm
voters. >> to nominate hillary clinton, the next president and tim kaine, the next vice president of the united states. i want to share a little bit of my story because it's an american story. it's the sorry of millions of latinos and latinas across this country. i'm the daughter of immigrant parents from mexico. they came to this country and worked hard every day to provide for me and my brothers and sisters. my father, ignacio, was an industrial mechanic. and my mother, maria, became an elementary school teacher after raising a family. they owned their own home. they sent all seven of their children to college.
4:11 pm
my mother and father saved and sacrificed to achieve the american dream for our family. they weren't given their success. they earned it. donald trump believes mexican immigrants are murderers and rapists. but what about my parents, donald? let me tell you what my parents are. they are the only parents in our nation's 265-year history to send not one, but two daughters to the united states congress.
4:12 pm
like my parents, hillary clinton believes the united states is a country where people of all backgrounds can make a home and a better life. but that america isn't possible if we allow donald trump and his republican party to build a wall that divides us. i stand here tonight as the chair of the congressional hispanic caucus and a proud congresswoman from california, but most importantly, i'm here as a mom. we all want what's best for our kids. we want our children to grow up to be healthy, successful and kind heart. our job is to nurture them, be good role models for them to follow as they grow. i will be the first to tell you that being a parent hard. but donald trump is making it a whole lot harder. he has taken the low road time and time again. he has been vulgar and he has
4:13 pm
been intolerant. as we say in spanish -- [ speaking spanish ] he peddles fear intestine security to divide the great people of this country. tell me, what kind of example would we set for our children by allowing a bully to sit in the oval office? we know that our children aren't born with hate or racism in their hearts. they learn it from watching the world around them and following the example of the adult s in their life. too many of our children and watching and learning the wrong lessons from donald trump. we've seen it at an indiana basketball game where a group of white students started chanting "build that wall" to players from a predominantly hispanic high school. this is the behavior that donald trump inspires in our youth.
4:14 pm
a trump presidency would be a signal to our children that we condone this kind of behavior. that is a message i refuse to accept. who we vote for says a lot about our values. there are few moments in history that have an impact on the trajectory of the world. i believe that this election is one of those moments. our children are watching us. their future depends on the outcome of this race. do we want a responsible leader or a loud-mouthed bully? do we want a president who respects women or calls them names and devalues them? do we want a president who appreciates the chiropractics immigrants make to our country or someone who villifies them? hillary clinton is the only choice for president. she is a president we can be proud of.
4:15 pm
and, donald, let me just say this. america is great. it is the country that gave my family the opportunity for a better life, just like all immigrants who came before them. it is before of our diverse iit. [ speaking spanish ] like i said in the video, hillary clinton is bad ass and ready to lead. let's win in november. >> and you can see there linda sanchez, congresswoman, finishing her feet. many things effective in there. many of them when she brought her sister out and kept referring to donald trump personally. well, donald. well, donald. >> she did. she referenced his comments from
4:16 pm
the day he launched his campaign for the presidency, when he went down the escalator that day in trump tower and talked about mexicans and she put that front and center. we're hearing lots of about donald trump snippets in this convention. mayor of boston, marty walsh, will come out and speak. he's coming out right now. let's listen to mayor marty walsh, boston. >> good evening. good evening. thank you, massachusetts. thank you. good evening delegates. my name is marty walsh and i'm an alcoholic. on april 23rd, 1995, i hit rock bottom. i woke up with little memory of the night before and even less hope for the days to come.
4:17 pm
everybody was losing faith in me. everybody except my family and the labor movement. i followed my father into the building trades when i was 18 years old. labor gave my immigrant family a chance in the labor community got me the help i needed and gave me a second chance. 18 years later, i became the mayor of boston, a city of big dreams and a big heart. as mayor, i work to give everyone a fair shot and a second chance. whether it's apprenticeships, free community college or help starting a business. there's no doubt in my mind that hillary clinton is the champion
4:18 pm
american workers need. she will help workers get the skills, the jobs and the child care they knead to support strong families. she believes in an america that's not just for those with advantages. she believes in an america for those who need a helping hand, people struggling with addiction, moms working two jobs, students in debt, seniors struggling to retire. workers facing layoffs and people like the carpenters and electrician donald trump hired but then refused to pay just because he did. we may not have our names in gold outside any buildings we've worked on. but our sweat, our work, our pride is on the inside of every single one of them.
4:19 pm
hillary clinton knows that. what i learned in my labor family, we are stronger together. this is our choice. are we going to let donald trump stiff the working families so he can make more for himself and the people at the top or are we going to stick together and build an economy that works for everybody in america? i know where i stand. i stand with the women and men of every race, creed, color who built this country. and i stand as a living example of hillary clinton's vision for an america where everyone gets a fair shot and a second chance to achieve their dreams. that's the america i believe in. that's the america i've lived. and that's why america's working people are going to vote and elect hillary clinton our next
4:20 pm
president. i want to thank you and god bless the united states of america. >> passionate, well received speech from marty walsh, the mayor of boston. bernie sanders speaking to 1900 very vocal delegates in this arena tonight, crucial speech as we count down to that. can he get his supporters on board for hillary clinton? we'll be right back. you've wished upon it all year, and now it's finally here. the mercedes-benz summer event is back, with incredible offers on the mercedes-benz you've always longed for. but hurry, these shooting stars fly by fast. lease the cla250 for $299 a month at your local mercedes-benz dealer. mercedes-benz. the best or nothing. safety doesn't come in a box. it's not a banner that goes on a wall. it's not something you do now and then.

4:24 pm
intensity building here in the convention hall in philadelphia at this hour. we are back live at the democratic convention, looking ahead to the big three speakers of the night, senator elizabeth warren, first lady michelle obama and bernie sanders. nearly 2,000 delegates all in this room tonight. the emotion is high. and i want to go straight to our reporters, dana bash, pamela brown, jeff zelany. all have been looking at this crucial part of the story. one of the biggest issues here when we look at this, 44% of democratic voters said they wanted bernie sanders and not hillary clinton. >> that's right. >> you see that sort of split
4:25 pm
reflected here on the delegate floor. >> reporter: that's absolutely right. a week ago, the question among cruz delegates was whether or not they would unite behind donald trump. for the most part, the answer was yes. they wanted to hear ted cruz endorse donald trump. here, what we're hearing from bernie sanders all across the floor from states all across the country, that they want bernie sanders to tell them why it's important for them to get behind hillary clinton, because so many of them are not behind her. i'll show you right here is the california delegation up there. they're sort of up in the stands. and they are perhaps the most boister russ so far. they very divided on the question of whether or not they can get behind hillary clinton. >> you're looking at the california delegation, as dana was speaking of it. the labor union speak iing here.
4:26 pm
to try to make sure there is no scene tonight? >> reporter: that's right. ambassadors have been working with the bernie sanders' campaign, quietly working the floor, the various delegations, trying to keep the calm. dana mentioned the boisterous california delegation. we spoke to an ambassador in that delegation, who says he has been talking to the bernie sanders supporters who are upset about the e-mails and tim kaine being picked as hillary clinton's vice president. and the message he's giving to those supporters is in the past year the bernie sanders movement has made a lot of headway, we moved hillary clinton more to the left when it comes to minimum wage, when it comes to trade, wall street. so we have made a lot of progress here. you're going to hear a unifying message from bernie sanders tonight. back to you. >> thank you very much, pamela. you see those tpp signs, no tpp on this floor. those are your bernie sanders supporters. hillary clinton, of course, was very much for the tpp.
4:27 pm
now following bernie sanders and posing it. jeff zelany, someone who opposes a lot of these things, is going to elizabeth warren in that crucial prime time slot tonight. >> reporter: no doubt, erin. clinton advisers believe if anyone can turn this room around it's elizabeth warren. i am up on the podium here. she will be speaking just in front of me to my right. from this vantage point there are about -- sometimes it looks like an equal number of bernie signs and clinton signs. the clinton advisers believe elizabeth warren and her message that can be uniquely tailored to this group. she stayed on the sidelines, in many respects increased her value. so elizabeth warren key to uch with an tonight. >> jeff zeleny, thanks. first lady michelle obama going to speaking on that stage and a-list entertainers performing includes demi lo

having acne... ...was always on my mind. so i asked a dermatologist about new aczone dapsone gel 7.5%. i apply it once a day, any time. aczone gel 7.5% is fda approved for the topical treatment of acne for people 12 years and older. aczone gel is a once-a-day acne treatment with clinically proven results. in clinical trials, acne got better for people using aczone gel in just 12 weeks. aczone gel may cause the serious side effect of methemoglobinemia, which decreases oxygen in your blood. stop taking aczone gel and get medical help right away if your lips, mouth, or nails turn grey or blue. talk to your doctor if you have g6pd deficiency. using benzoyl peroxide with aczone gel may cause skin or facial hair to temporarily turn yellow or orange where applied. common side effects of aczone gel include dryness and itching of treated skin. now, i have less acne to think about because i use aczone gel. you could pay as little as $15 for aczone gel. learn more at aczone. prescription treatment. proven results.

4:32 pm
ahead to tonight's crucial prime time speakers, senator bernie sanders on that list. elizabeth warren on that list, reaching out to progressives on the party. getting a chance to have their full say. another of the big themes tonight, the substance abuse, pandemic in this country, a woman who hillary clinton met on the campaign trail will be speaking, talking about that personal connection they had as well as the crisis, demi lovato going to be speaking and performing, talking about her personal crisis with addiction. dan, this is a very crucial part of this program. they are devoting a significant amount of time to it. we'll see a video in a few moments. this is something that hillary clinton believes is very important to be -- again, a significant part of her first night at the convention. >> right. this is not a political issue in the sense she's going to -- new hampshire, a state that's been dramatically affected by this. the hope is that in the long run you can take advantage of this
4:33 pm
platform. >> david, this is something that does touch a lot of americans. you take a look at the statistics, they are stunning. one baby born addicted every 19 minutes in this country in new hampshire, as dan mentioned. you'll see the senator speak tonight here as well. we'll be listening to her. you have half the people in that state say they know somebody who is suffering from an opioid type addiction. >> we sent a reporter up to new hampshire early on to start covering the new hampshire primary. there is a crisis going on here, every candidate is talking about it. you couldn't go to an event in new hampshire where there was not the issue. when hillary clinton went to new hampshire and met this woman who is going to speak tonight, this became a campaign issue after that. not just in new hampshire. she took it all over the country. jeb bush was talking about this and chris christie was talking about this. this was just across party
4:34 pm
lines. the state that these candidates spent so much time in it. >> donald trump addressed it, too, but hillary clinton is dedicating a lot of time in her convention, multiple speakers to this issue. >> hopefully it's an opportunity to personalize her a little bit, talk about that personal interaction she had on the campaign trail. that was successful for donald trump, humanizing of donald trump. if this woman can speak to hillary clinton's positive attributes, it will be a very good moment for her. >> i think i'm taken aback. one of the things that you saw last week versus this week, you actually had speakers who went on stage, especially during the first day, who didn't even mention donald trump's name. you have speakers today who are embracing hillary clinton. this moment we're about to see is about to be a very powerful moment, emotional moment. and one that we really want to see more of hillary clinton in. it's a moment that is not draped in politics. this is something that is very personal to so many people. i look forward to this woman's story and this being an issue. if donald trump, god bless him,
4:35 pm
is the president of the united states, i hope he does something not just about this opioid addiction but drugs in general. >> this woman is going to speak. hillary clinton met on the campaign trail, she'll be speaking about her daughter. we just heard that with congr s congresswoman sanchez. how important that is. we'll hear it again later. she is definitely embracing that as the first female candidate here. she is embracing those aspects of motherhood and family. >> she's a mother and grandmother. also children's issues were at the beginning of her career. children's health program in the white house when her husband was president. i do think on this particular issue, this is not about politics. it's about the idea that she has a national television audience, big social media audience to push issues she cares about to try to get something done. >> this is what we'll see first this video then hear from her. she met hillary clinton on the
4:36 pm
campaign trail and asked a question going through a very terrible time with her daughter. and now has to take over basically custody of her grandson. >> that's absolutely right. as dan said, i think this is not just -- you'll start to see this tomorrow night as well. this is about stitching together all the different pieces of hillary clinton's life that the campaign wants to get out this week. he mentioned the children's defense fund work and other work she has done. this kind of plays into that narrative. >> let's listen to the video at the democratic national convention on this issue. >> you know, when i came here to new hampshire the first time in this campaign and heard about the heroin epidemic -- >> also the growing drug problem in our area. >> worry all losing fathers, brothers, sons, mothers. >> the numbers of people who are being affected. >> you have been impact bid your own or someone else's use of substances, would you just raise your hand? i didn't even know what was wrong with me until i found out that i was an addict.
4:37 pm
>> this problem touches everybody. >> my children suffered. my family suffered. >> meeting grandmothers, raising their grandchildren. >> all of my friends are raising their grandchildren because of addiction. >> i think you're very brave and very loving to take on this responsibility. >> it is plaguing families. >> i don't want to go to more funerals. i'm going to one this weekend. >> i didn't know if i wanted to do better. it had full control of my heart and soul. >> i wouldn't have necessarily known that if i hadn't been sitting in a little cafe in keen, listening to people tell me about what was breaking their hearts and what they wanted their president to know. >> we need the voice of those who are using. that is the way in which we can make an impact on this disease. >> we can't walk away from these stories. these are our children. these are our friends, our neighbors, our loved ones. this is not something we can just brush under the rug and wish it would go away.
4:38 pm
we need to drag it out of the shadows, hold it up to the light. >> everybody should feel that they are valued, they are cared about and they have a president who sees them. >> ladies and gentlemen, please welcome pam livengood from keane, new hampshire. >> hi. for my 50th birthday, i got a 2-year-old. you see, my daughter and her boyfriend had a beautiful little boy named francis but they got caught up in drugs. it started with the pain medication she was given after francis was born. and it just got worse. it's hard to explain just how devastating it is to watch your
4:39 pm
child struggle with substance abuse. i know my daughter loved francis but love wasn't enough to take care of him. i started getting calls from child services. and one day, they said francis would be taken away from my family and put in foster care unless he had family who could take care of him. there was no way we were going to let our grandson end up in foster care. so, francis lived with my husband, john and i, until he was 5. his grandfather -- he lives with his grandfather now, who is on disability. and when you're my age, you don't expect to start all over again, raising a grandchild. today, my daughter is in treatment but she has a long road ahead of her. my story isn't unique. this epidemic has devastated communities all over the country. it doesn't discriminate against age, race, gender or income. it affects all of us.
4:40 pm
but sometimes it feels like folks in washington don't hear these stories. well, last year, hillary clinton came to new hampshire for a round table at my workplace. and she asked if addiction had touched any of us. and as i told my story, hillary listened. she even took notes. and then she did something else we don't see a lot of in washington. she took action. she came up with a plan, one that includes everything from reducing overdoses to expanding access to treatment. to me, that's the kind of leader we need. we need a leader who listens to the voices of ordinary americans, a leader tho treats people with compassion and respect, a leader who believes that, as americans, we look out for each other. i'm not saying that leader has to be a grandmother but it sure
4:41 pm
helps. for me, that leader is hillary clinton. >> announcer: ladies and gentlemen, please welcome senator jean chahine from new hampshire. >> thank you. thank you, delegates. and thank you, pam livengood for sharing your family's story here today. i applaud your courage. democrats stand with you, your family and all families struggling with addiction and president hillary clinton will stand with you and we will win
4:42 pm
this fight together. ravaging communities all across this country. it's a crisis that affects old and young, rich and pour, men and women, democrats and republicans. and it will take all of us working together to defeat it. across new hampshire the awful toll grows each year, 192 overdoses in 2013, 326 fatalities in 2014. and 433 fatalities in 2015. these storyies -- these statistics tell a story of a staggering epidemic, but they
4:43 pm
can't capture the profound human toll. it's not only thousands of individual lives that have been destroyed. entire communities are being devastated. hillary clinton sees the epidemic and its terrific toll because she came to new hampshire. not to talk but to listen. a story i recently heard about a young man full of promise, on his way to college when he suffered a sports injury, got addicted to pain killers, switched to heroin. and now instead of living on the freshman quad, he's living on the streets. panhandling for his next fix. turned away from treatment facilities due to a lack of resources. hillary heard from law
4:44 pm
enforcement, stretched to their limit, dealing with substance abuse. she knows that drug counselors and police officers and others on the front lines of the battle are heroes. they're doing amazing work. but they need more help. hillary clinton knows we cannot continue on this path. she knows because she listened in new hampshire and across the country. she listened. she learned. and she put together a plan to treat this like the health emergency it is. to deploy the necessary resources to fight it. her plan would invest in goals to prevent drug use among teenagers, ensure every person
4:45 pm
suffering from addiction can obtain comprehensive treatment, ensure that all first responders carry narcan, which can stop overdoses from becoming fatal and prioritize treatment over prison for low-level and nonviolent drug offenses so we can end the era of mass incarceration. pay for policing, prevention, treatment and recovery. but sadly, it was defeated by republicans. donald trump certainly doesn't have a pln to deal with this health epidemic that's gripped our country. in fact, donald trump doesn't seem to know what's happening outside of trump tower. and he seems completely uninterested in finding out.
4:46 pm
how can trump represent america when he doesn't even take the time to know america? we need a president who listens, learns, has empathy and wants the same opportunities for all children that she's had. who wants an america where we go forward together. we need president hillary clinto clinton. >> you just heard from jean shaheen. pop star demi lovato, a serious addiction since she was 19, couldn't go more than 30 minutes without cocaine and now is going to come out and speak about that and then perform one of her most popular songs.
4:47 pm
>> i don't recall seeing something like this, starting with the boston of mayor talking about his addiction. >> like millions of americans i'm living with mental illness. but i was lucky. i had the resources to get treatment at a top facility. unfortunately too many americans from all walks of life don't get help either because they fear the stigma or cannot afford treatment. it can lead to devastating consequences, including suicide, substance abuse and long-term medical issues. we can do better. i urge every politician to vote for laws that provide better
4:48 pm
health care and support for everyone. i'm doing my very small part by having the treatment center on tour with me so at least a small group of people even for a brief moment can have the same support that i received. it may not be a lot but we have to believe every small action counts. i stand here today, as proof that you can live a normal and empowered life with mental illness. i'm proud to support a presidential candidate who will fight to ensure all people living with mental health conditions get the care they need to lead fulfilling lives. that candidate is hillary clinton. let's make her the next

women did not even have the right to vote. let us take a moment, if we can, to marvel in the fact that from victoria woodhall to carly fiorina and elizabeth dole, we are finally, in this nation, going to achieve something that other countries have been able to achieve before us, which is have a woman as a major political party nominee. it is a huge moment for the republic itself, whether you  like hillary clinton or not, whether you're torn about going for her or you're enthusiastic. it's a big time, big moment for the united states. >> good point. she will be accepting the democratic presidential nomination. we're about to hear from 10-year-old carly ortiz. she's 11 years old. i should correct that. she met hillary clinton on the campaign trail in february. in las vegas, just before the nevada caucuses. she told hillary clinton at that time, her parents were undocumented immigrants and she feared she would lose her parents. we'll hear a lot about this in

the coming minutes about these hispanics who are fearful of that kind of deportation. >> in the coming minutes and from now until november, this is one of the biggest dividing lines between hillary clinton and donald trump, is the subject of illegal immigration, what to do about undocumented workers in this country. donald trump talking about building a wall, talking about deporting 11 or 12 million of them. hillary clinton, the almost exact opposite approach, talking about finding a way to bring them in to the economy and give them legal status. >> the major speakers, the first lady of the united states, michelle obama, she will be making a very, very strong statement of support for hillary clinton. bernie sanders full-throated endorsement. we'll hear from him tonight and elizabeth warren, she is going to give the key note address. >> those are very important speeches this evening. but also what's very important is will or not michelle obama, bernie sanders, elizabeth warren and others will be able to go out on the campaign trail and get those members of the obama
