Flashback Friday: DNC of 2008

This week we're taking a look back at the DNC of 2008.

President Obama made history that year as he accepted the Democratic nomination for President.
In our KTVU archive footage we show Hillary Clinton giving support to him. "Whether you voted for me, or you voted for Barack, the time is now to unite as a single party with a single purpose."

Our footage also showed Michelle Obama speaking. She told a story about how Obama drove home from the hospital after their first baby was born "at a snail's pace." She also talked about how he was raised by his grandparents and a single mother.

Obama accepted the nomination stating "With profound gratitude and great humility I accept your nomination for presidency of the United States... I realize that I'm not the likeliest candidate for this office. I don't fit the typical pedigree and I haven't sent my career in the halls of Washington but I stand before you tonight because all across America something is stirring. What the naysayers don't understand is this election has never been about me. It's about you."

Obama went on to defeat Senator John McCain and became the first African American to be elected as President of the United States.
