ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: The final day of the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia opened Thursday with Hillary Clinton expected to make her case for the White House on Thursday night. Shortly after the last day opened, singer Star Swain sang the National Anthem. Clinton, the former secretary of state has a hard act to follow after President Barack Obama and his wife, Michelle Obama, and Vice President Joe Biden electrified this week's Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia. Clinton, 68, will lay out her campaign message to Americans as she accepts the nomination to run against Republican Donald Trump in the Nov. 8 election. She needs to make a convincing argument that she can bring about change while representing the legacy of Obama, who is nearing the end of his second four-year term with high approval ratings. She also needs to make inroads with voters who find her untrustworthy or unlikeable.
