ROUGH CUT (no reporter narration) Story: Delegates chanted "Hillary, Hillary," as U.S. Senator Barbara Mikulski put Clinton's name forward for a state-by-state roll call at the Democratic convention in Philadelphia. After a long battle with U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders, Clinton has more than enough delegates needed to win the vote and be the standard bearer for the party against Republican nominee Donald Trump at the Nov. 8 election. Sanders has endorsed Clinton, a former secretary of state and first lady, but some of his supporters have protested in Philadelphia against her and the party establishment for seeming to back her during the bitter Democratic primary fight. The nominating process on Tuesday was expected to take around two hours. Sanders' name was also put forward for nomination but he does not have the delegates to win. Supporters of Clinton, who was also a U.S. senator and first lady to President Bill Clinton, say her Washington credentials show she has the experience needed for the White House during troubled times, as the United States tries to speed up its economic recovery and faces security challenges abroad. Detractors view her as too cozy with the establishment, and say she carries political baggage dating back to the start of her husband's first White House term in the 1990s.
