The star power was in full force Wednesday night at the Democratic National Convention with a theme of "Working Together." 

President Obama and Vice President Joe Biden addressed the convention to support Hillary Clinton's candidacy. They spoke about the challenges this country still faces.

They also spoke about the need for well-paying jobs, criminal justice reform, and the threat of ISIS. President Obama argued that Hillary Clinton is the best person to take all these challenges. 

"Nothing truly prepares you for the demands of the Oval Office. You can read about it... you can study it... But until you've sat at that desk, you don't know what it's like to manage a global crisis, or send young people to war. But Hillary's been in the room; she's been part of those decisions."

Clinton's running mate, Tim Kaine, delivered his speech for the first time as the Vice President nominee. Clinton supporters were eager to hear what he had to say. 

Mary Alice Palacios, a Clinton delegate said, "I know they share the same platform so I think that's gonna be positive I just want to get to know him." 

The final day of the convention begins in a few hours. The goal throughout the DNC has been to unify the party, by turning Sanders supporters into Clinton supporters. 

We'll see if that plan works Thursday night when Hillary Clinton delivers her speech and closes the convention.
