Democrats on Wednesday cast Donald Trump as a threat to the American dream and Hillary Clinton as the nation's only chance to save it.

President Barack Obama called Trump a "homegrown demagogue." Michael Bloomberg dismissed him as a "con." And Vice President Joe Biden, in rejecting Trump, declared that "Americans have never, ever, ever, ever let their country down."

They set the frame for the Democratic National Convention's most important moment: Clinton's speech Thursday night, which the Trump campaign has encouraged supporters not to tune into.

Here's what to watch on the DNC's final night:

Clinton will accept the Democratic nomination and deliver one of the biggest speeches of her political life -- on par with declaring in China that "women's rights are human rights" and more important than her 2008 concession speech in which she declared she'd placed "18 million cracks" in the glass ceiling.

She'll take a page from Trump's book in doing so.

Trump was introduced by his daughter, Ivanka. And Clinton will be introduced by her daughter, Chelsea.

What the two daughters have in common: Both have the capacity to humanize their parents, who are among the least-liked major party nominees in history.

Retired Gen. John Allen, who led the war in Afghanistan, will also be among the night's marquee speakers.
