Michelle Obama comes to Hillary's rescue

Unfortunately, Hillary Clinton's name was met with boos and jeers from a restless crowd at the opening night of the Democratic National Convention, despite calls from Bernie Sanders for unity.

But she only was able for First Lady Michelle Obama as she gave a rousing speech that earned laughter and applause from former president Bill Clinton in the auditorium. Mrs Obama drew regular comparisons between Mrs Clinton and Republican nominee Donald Trump - without mentioning the billionaire businessman by name.

She said the US needed a president who knew issues could not "be boiled down to 140 characters" and urged voters not to believe anyone who said they could make America great again - because it was still "the greatest country on Earth".

Mrs Obama also praised Mrs Clinton for advancing the cause for women with her nomination so "all our sons and daughters can now take for granted that a woman can be president".

Mrs Obama reassured the perturbed crowd, like she had reassured for her husband eight years back that the candidate they had come to cheer is the right candidate for United States.

However, outside the hall more than 50 protesters were detained while showing their anger at Mrs Clinton's nomination.
