“Hello, Philadelphia, I am so happy for this great day and tonight. What an incredible honor you have given me, and I cannot believe we just put the biggest crack in that glass ceiling yet,” Clinton, 68, said. “Thanks to you and everyone who has fought so hard to make this possible. This is really your victory. This is really your night. And if there are any little girls out there who stayed up late to watch, let me just say, I may become the first woman president, but one of you is next. Thank you all. I cannot wait to join you in Philadelphia. Thank you!”
