Key moments at the DNC

Khizr Khan, the father of a Muslim American soldier who was killed serving in Iraq, took aim at Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, saying Trump has 'sacrificed nothing,' as he offered his copy of the U.S. Constitution to him. U.S. Army Capt. Humayun Khan (L) died in 2004, when a car loaded with explosives blew up at his compound in Iraq. He was 27. "Have you ever been to Arlington cemetery?" Khizr Khan asked. "Go look at the graves of brave Americans who died defending United States of America. You will see all faiths, genders and ethnicities. You have sacrificed nothing." REUTERS/Lucy Nicholson

President Barack Obama painted an optimistic picture of America's future and offered full-throated support for Hillary Clinton's bid to defeat Republican Donald Trump in a speech that electrified the Democratic National Convention.
He urged Democrats to enable Clinton to finish the job he started with his election nearly eight years ago in a rousing speech that capped a night when party luminaries took to the stage to contrast the party's new standard-bearer with Trump, whom they portrayed as a threat to U.S. values.

And because of Hillary Clinton, my daughters -- and all our sons and daughters -- now take for granted that a woman can be President of the United States," she said.  REUTERS/Scott Audette
