Hillary Clinton: Listen Up, Little Girls ... You Can Be Next Female Prez

Hillary Clinton made her own dramatic entrance -- via satellite -- at the DNC Tuesday night as she officially became the first woman nominated to run for President of the United States.

Hillary popped up in the jumbotron following a montage of all the previous Presidents -- and the crowd went wild during an awkwardly long 45 seconds of staring at Mrs. Clinton's face in the screen.

"1984"-ish moment aside ... she had a few poignant remarks about the historic moment, and attempted to inspire young women around the country.

Also memorable ... Meryl Streep's intro to a video package earlier in the evening. Somewhere Howard Dean is texting, "LMAO."
