Video: Democratic convention, day 2 recap

Hillary Clinton takes to the stage to rally the delegates as they get ready to give the official nod to Barack Obama as presidential nominee.

The second night of the Democratic National Convention could have been a flashpoint as Hillary Clinton took to the stage .

Many observers had wondered whether Clinton, the chief rival to Barack Obama during the primary season earlier this year, would use her prime-time speech to further her own ambitions more than to support Obama, who is set to become the official Democratic presidential nominee later this week at the convention.

But in the end, Clinton delivered a solid message of support for Obama.
