It takes a president: No. 42 delivers, 44 is on deck tonight

His hair is whiter. His frame and cheekbones are a little more gaunt. And, his voice is raspy.

But, former President Bill Clinton has still got all his classic mojo.

The man who dazzled America with a saxophone solo on Arsenio Hall all those years ago, did it again Tuesday night at the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia.

The 42nd president of the United States shared his love story with Hillary, his wife of 41 years, with the nation, and made the case for why she is not only the most qualified, but "the right one" to become the country's 45th president starting next January.

"You have to decide. You have to decide which is which, my fellow Americans," Clinton said. "The 'real one' had done more positive change-making before she was 30 than many public officials do in a lifetime in office."

"Good for you, because earlier today, you nominated the 'real one.'"

Hillary Clinton became the first woman nominated to a major political party in the United States Tuesday during a roll call vote of the states and territories.

Clinton picked up more than 2,842 delegates to Bernie Sanders roughly 1,865 during an hour-long roll call vote.

Then, the Vermont Senator appealed to the floor to suspend the procedural rules of the convention and nominate Hillary Clinton by acclamation as the Democratic candidate for president.

Tonight, President Obama, the man who defeated Hillary Clinton in the Democratic Party's 2008 Presidential Primary and later appointed her to his cabinet as Secretary of State, will make the case for why she should be the next president of the United States.

Obama will be the final speaker of the third night of the convention.

Here's a list of the other speakers who will take the podium tonight, according to the Democratic National Convention's official website:
