A delegate holds a collage of Hillary Clinton at the Democratic National Convention in PhiladelphiaBy Amanda Becker and Jeff Mason PHILADELPHIA/WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Barack Obama will highlight Hillary Clinton's judgment and toughness on Wednesday to back her campaign to be the first woman elected U.S. president, hoping to hand off the White House to a trusted fellow Democrat and stop Republican Donald Trump. On a day when Democrats meeting at their convention in Philadelphia planned to tout their candidate as far better suited than Trump to keep the country safe, the Republican gave his critics fresh fodder for attack with remarks that the Clinton campaign said posed a possible national security threat. Grabbing the spotlight at a news conference in Miami, Trump urged Russia to find and release tens of thousands of emails that Clinton did not hand over to U.S. officials as part of a probe into her use of a private email system while she was secretary of state.

The United States, which is accustomed to arriving near the finale, is in fact called Estados Unidos in Portuguese, the language spoken in Brazil.
