Hillary Clinton’s historic acceptance speech as the Democratic National Convention has the celeb world buzzing with pride over our country’s first woman to be nominated as a major party’s presidential candidate. President Obama, Oprah Winfrey and more celebrated her achievement with thrilling tweets during her acceptance speech.
She did it! Hillary Clinton, 68, is the official Democratic nominee for President of the United States, and celebrities are cheering on her accomplishment of cracking the biggest glass ceiling ever. The former Secretary of State gave a rousing speech July 28 about bringing the nation together and got into amazing specifics about what she intends to do as president. She made is crystal clear she’s the complete opposite of Republican opponent Donald Trump, 70, in where he says he’s the only one who can fix the country, Hil said it takes a village. How true!
Hillary has had the support of much of Hollywood throughout her hard-fought campaign to get to where she is, even though her onetime opponent Bernie Sanders, 74, had his fair share of celebrity support. But as we all know now, he’s urged his followers to rally behind Hillary in the Nov. election and keep Donald away from such a powerful office. The DNC has been so star-studded with famous faces urging America to say “I’m With Her.”
Great speech. She's tested. She's ready. She never quits. That's why Hillary should be our next @POTUS. (She'll get the Twitter handle, too)

Now that both candidates are official, it’s game on as the march towards Tues. Nov. 8 when America hits the voting booths to decide our next president. You can bet that many of Hillary’s celebrity supporters like Katy Perry, Meryl Streep, Demi Lovato, Lady Gaga and more will be doing all they can to get out on the campaign trail and help convince undecided folks why Hillary is so much more worthy of the Oval Office as opposed to the untested, megalomanic billiionare.
HollywoodLifers, are you Team Hillary in this election?
