PHILDELPHIA -- Hillary Clinton is up against unrest and anger as the dissatisfied marched through the Philadelphia streets toward the newly-named nominee at the Democratic National Convention on Tuesday.

Many were Bernie Sanders human bumper stickers.

Some say there's no future without their candidate, even though he's no longer one. They're furious about politics, the economy, their lives, and Clinton represents too much of more of the same.

Emotion also moved throughout a hotel conference room. It was a slow build until everyone in the Iowa delegation realized the man who created the movement had arrived.

The homecoming brought out feelings like a long lost relative had returned.

Martin O'Malley, another defeated presidential candidate came by, too. He also felt the affection.

A Clinton fan across the room couldn't help but be moved by it all.

"They're happy tears," I'm a Hillary supporter but it's just seeing all these people here who are so impassioned," said Megan Srinivas, an Iowa delegate.

Sanders left them with one last challenge, to keep their revolution alive by pushing progressive ideas.

And he offered one last emotional thank you.

"You gave us the opportunity to tell the rest of the world that we were a serious campaign," Sanders said. "That's what you did.  Thank you all for that. See you soon."

So that's what's ahead for Clinton. She needs to win over some of these types of people so she can win in November. But she's won the Iowa caucuses and gone further than any woman ever has in this presidential race and has her own movement behind her.
