In fact, Tuesday’s evening was successful, joyful and unforgettable. The presidential election is really exhausting business, so, such a musical event is the great reason to relax and show each other the mutual support.

“It is not true that our best days are behind us. It is not true – unless we give it up. Don’t give it up. Grab it.”

Chelsea Clinton, wearing a T-shirt bearing her mother’s face, told the audience:

“What is at stake in this election is the future that we want our children to grow up in and whether or not we are going to have a country that we all can be proud of because all of us can be ourselves.”
