ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton joined U.S. President Barack Obama on stage at the Democratic National Convention, following his speech extolling her qualifications to be president. The two were rivals in the hard-fought 2008 campaign for the Democratic nomination. After winning that election to become America's first black president, Obama appointed Clinton his secretary of state, a position she held until 2013. A former first lady and U.S. senator, Clinton made history on Tuesday when she became the first woman to secure the presidential nomination of a major party. Clinton is scheduled to speak to the convention and accept the nomination Thursday night.
