But when Clinton stepped off the stage and the standing ovation faded into silence, many of her supporters were left with a sobering realization: Even a tremendous speech couldn't erase their frustrations.

    Despite Clinton's plea for Democrats to unite, her delegates remained divided as to how they should proceed.
