(Newser) – After Bill Clinton's warmly received speech at the DNC Tuesday night, Meryl Streep took the stage, followed by Alicia Keys, followed by a surprise appearance from the nominee herself via satellite video from New York. She appeared on the big screen after a montage of former presidents, including the one she's married to, and an animation of breaking glass, the Washington Post reports. "Hello Philadelphia, I'm so happy," she said as delegates went wild. "I can't believe we put the biggest crack in that glass ceiling yet." "This is really your victory," she continued. "And if there are any little girls out there who stayed up late to watch, let me just say: 'I may become the first woman president, but one of you is next.’" Earlier in the day, she made history by becoming the female presidential nominee of any major US political party.
