(CN) - A team of reporters from Courthouse News is reporting live from the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia. Tensions boiled over Tuesday as many Sanders supporters continue to ignore his plea to fall in line for Hillary Clinton.
PHILADELPHIA (CN) - Newly minted Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton addressed delegates at the Democratic National Convention live from New York Tuesday night.
"I can't believe we just put the biggest crack in that glass ceiling yet," Clinton said, via a live video feed.
Clinton's speech came over the massive video boards on the stage at the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia, after a short video ran through pictures of all of the nation's presidents. The video zoomed out, showing all of their pictures at once before Clinton "shattered" the image, sending digital broken glass flying.
Clinton became the first woman to earn the nomination of a major political party in the United States Tuesday afternoon.
PHILADELPHIA (CN) - Continuing a night celebrating Hillary Clinton's historic nomination for president, former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright praised Clinton as a hard worker prepared to serve as commander-in-chief.
Albright, herself a pioneer as the first woman to serve as secretary of state, praised Clinton's work in the same role under President Barack Obama and as an advocate for the military and human rights.
"As I travel around the world today, I am reminded how important it is that the person who represents our nation is trusted by our allies, who listens more than she talks," Albright said.
Albright also condemned Republican nominee Donald Trump as doing damage to the country's image simply by running for office.
"He has undermined our fight against terrorism by alienating our Muslim partners," Albright said. "He has weakened our standing in the world by threatening to walk away from our friends and our allies and by encouraging more countries to get nuclear weapons."
Albright questioned Trump's occasional praise of dictators like Saddam Hussein and Vladimir Putin, calling it dangerous.
"Take it from someone who fled the Iron Curtain, I know what happens when you give the Russians a green light," Albright said. "Trump's dark vision of America, one that's isolated in the world, alienated from our allies would be a disaster. We must make sure that this never happens."
Beyond endorsing Clinton's performance in both the Senate and in the executive branch, Albright also told stories of Clinton as a friend she has known for more than 25 years.
She said Clinton did not like the Czech cabbage that Albright made her try when visiting her home city of Prague, and that Clinton honed her management skills as a mother and grandmother.
But she focused most of her speech on Clinton's qualifications to serve in the White House, which she defended as sterling.
Bernie Sanders delegates and supporters have ended their sit-in inside a media tent at the Democratic convention site in Philadelphia, while protests outside have calmed down, too.
Inside the arena, after Hillary Clinton became the first woman to claim the presidential nomination of a major U.S. party, Sanders delegates walked out and held about an hour-long sit-in at a media tent.
Outside, police started detaining Sanders supporters who climbed the 8-foot fences at the edge of the secure zone around the Wells Fargo Center.
