For Hillary Clinton: A milestone reached, a message delivered


Hillary Clinton fulfilled the ambitions and dreams of generations of women on Thursday night when she became the first woman to accept a major-party nomination for president of the United States. It is a moment that marks a welcome milestone in this country, whatever the outcome in November.

Clinton’s speech was a reflection of her: direct, to the point, a summation of the challenges she’s tackled over a lifetime. The details must come, but Clinton hit on the issues most concerning to Americans: better jobs, more opportunity, a focus on terrorism, along with a vow to make Wall Street and 1-percenters “pay their fair share.” Indeed, the potential costs of her long list of promises are concerning.

She has set herself an enormous task — that she will somehow be able to forge bipartisan compromise to accomplish these goals. But she also deftly made the case that as a veteran of fighting for change, she could bring a lifetime of experience to the cause of changing the status quo.
