Andrew Liang, a Scholastic News Kid Reporter from Johns Creek, filed the following report from Charlotte, NC:
The second day of the Democratic National Convention concluded with a riveting speech by former President Bill Clinton at the Time Warner Cable Arena in Charlotte, North Carolina. Other speakers on the evening of September 5 included former Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, and Massachusetts Senate candidate, Elizabeth Warren.
Clinton officially nominated Barack Obama as the Democratic Presidential nominee and fiercely pledged his support to President Obama.
"I want a man who believes with no doubt that we can build a new American dream economy, driven by innovation and creativity, by education and, yes, by cooperation," Clinton said. "I want Barack Obama to be the next President of the United States. And I proudly nominate him to be the standard bearer of the Democratic Party."
