PHILADELPHIA — An avalanche of balloons capped off this week's Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia, a colorful way to end what was a historic moment when Hillary Clinton became the first woman nominated be president of the United States.

And as politicians playfully batted at the balloons, viewers playfully batted at the sights of seeing the likes of former President Bill Clinton and vice presidential hopeful Tim Kaine frolicking like a veritable ball pit on the DNC stage.

Clinton's reaction to the dramatic balloon drop has been described as "giddy," "joyful," filled with "childlike wonder."
