PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Hillary Clinton is ready to face the nation with the goal of introducing the woman that speaker after speaker, including a pair of presidents, have spent days promising the American public they’ll finally get to see: the “real” Hillary Clinton.
In the biggest moment of her nearly 25-year political career, aides say Clinton will lay out a positive vision for the future and detail her proposals to improve the economy, boost security and unite a divided nation. She aims to strike a stark contrast with Republican nominee Donald Trump, who offered few policy specifics in a convention address that presented a picture of a diminished nation.
But Clinton’s challenge has never been her command of policy. Where she’s struggled is in presenting a clear and compelling rationale for her presidency.
