Image result for Silenced by the DNCThe most important political moment of the night came when Sanders delivered the full-throated endorsement that the Clinton campaign had longed for.

"Any objective observer will conclude that -- based on her ideas and her leadership -- Hillary Clinton must become the next president of the United States," Sanders told delegates, spurring a cascade of cheers.
After a hard fought primary, he left no doubt about his position on the cusp of the general election.

But all day long, there were signs that many Sanders supporters were still experiencing feelings of anger and loss at the effective end of his "political revolution." Their fury was exacerbated by a leak of Democratic National Committee documents that showed party leaders discussing how to thwart him during the primary.
And even on the convention floor, signs of discord were everywhere. One Clinton supporter, for example, got embroiled in an argument with a woman supporting Sanders, who had blue tape over her mouth reading "Silenced by the DNC."
