The Buzz: Herstory made

He’s with her (and that’s the problem): Hillary Clinton officially became the first female major-party nominee for president Tuesday, after the roll call at the Democratic Party convention in Philadelphia.

Now, all she has to do is bring Bernie Sanders holdouts into the fold, defeat Donald Trump in November, and, in her most daunting challenge of all, figure out a way to keep her restless husband out of trouble.

On the block soon? Twitter released another disappointing financial report Tuesday, fueling speculation that it may soon be forced into a sale.

The 140-character messaging service has been slow to attract new users, perhaps because people can read the latest Donald Trump tweet just about anywhere on the internet.

Lifeline? Fox News Channel honcho Roger Ailes may have been canned for sexual harassment, but Donald Trump says he’s open to hiring the conservative icon to work for his campaign.

Trump did not specify exactly what Ailes would do, or, more importantly, how he’d be kept away from Melania and Ivanka.
