As Bernie Sanders moved Tuesday evening that the Democratic National Convention nominate Hillary Clinton for president, he managed to cast in stone a historic moment in American history.

It's done. A historic moment. I'm a little teary, I won't lie.

Reporters covering the convention noted that the chants and protests that had marred Monday’s gathering were largely absent, and Sanders’ concession at last brought unity to a divided party.

Really? The Dems just made history by nominating Hillary Clinton & there was NO demonstration. They go right to MORE speeches? #happymoment?

Twenty four hours ago the meme was CHAOS and DISUNITY. Tonight, it's UNITY. Stayed tuned: You never know what'll happen next! #DNCinPHL

Totally different than last week. Take note republicans this is what true unity looks like #RollCallVote

That really was a beautiful show of unity, with the notable exception of the die-hard Sanders supporters who staged a mass walkout.
And the 1 minute of unity ends… https://t.co/PUd95F84wA

How much coverage will the walkout garner from the mainstream media? Bernie Sanders supporters who left the convention center in protest shouldn’t be difficult to find, seeing as they’ve stormed the media tent.

There’s so much unity, the police have moved in.
