Chelsea Clinton Delivers A Speech For Mom, Introducing Hillary Clinton At DNC

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) -- On the final night of the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia, Chelsea Clinton took to the stage to make the case for why the woman she calls mom, should be the next president of the United States.

She started by talking about the relationship that her mother shared with her young daughter Charlotte.

"Above all, she loves FaceTiming with Grandma," Chelsea Clinton said.

Like Republican nominee Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton went with her daughter for the honor of introducing her as she accepts the nomination of the party.

Chelsea Clinton follows her father, former President Bill Clinton, who spoke about his relationship with Hillary Clinton from the moment they first met.

Chelsea Clinton took the stage with the task of humanizing her mother and making it clear to the people in the arena, and to those tuned in at home, that America should not miss out on the historic chance to elect the first woman president of the country.

"Every single memory I have of my mom is that regardless of what is happening in her life, she is always there for me," Chelsea Clinton said. "That feeling of being valued and loved, is what my mom wants for every child. It is the calling of her life."

Chelsea Clinton talked about her mother's desire to serve. She testified about how her mother worked to help mothers and families that needed it. "Public service is about service," she said.

During the introduction, Hillary Clinton shared a picture of herself, backstage, watching her daughter on an historic night.

"She never, ever forgets what she's fighting for." Chelsea Clinton said. She talked about how her mother would always fight for women, not only in America, but around the world.

She characterized as a progressive who will reform America's criminal justice system 'and who know's that women's rights are human rights and that LGBT rights are human rights."

"I hope that my children will one day be as proud of me as I am of my mom. She makes me proud every single day and mom, Grandma would be so, so proud of you tonight."
