Fired up for party unity

After Hillary Clinton's speech on Tuesday night, we pulled out the video camera to check in with Obama and Clinton delegates and supporters.

DENVER -- We almost missed it.

While trying to enter the hall for Hillary Clinton's speech last night, we crossed paths with Michelle Obama. After her entrance (and in preparation for Clinton's) the Secret Service closed any access to the hall, so we high-tailed it up to the top floor and managed to find standing room almost parallel to the rafters.

Following the speech and back on the ground, we checked in with some attendees and Clinton and Obama delegates -- all were ready to follow Clinton's call to embrace her formal rival.
