>> I may become the first woman President, but one of you is next.>> Hilary Clinton secured the Democratic nomination on Tuesday night and was hailed for making feminist history but not everyone was happy about it. I'm Luciana Lopez, here in Philadelphia at the DNC. It was a night of contrast with Bernie Sanders and Bill Clinton urging the party to unite behind Hilary Clinton but Bernie Sanders supporters walked out and staged a protest against what they said had been a silencing of their voices.

Party conventions are typically big kumbaya moments. Everyone's suppose to hold hands and have some smores over the fire. That did not happen today. Instead, we were left with empty seats and a protest right outside. Not downtown but in fact on the grounds of the arena itself.>> For this time, Hillary is uniquely qualified.

>> I was sitting out on a floor with some delegations while Bill Clinton was talking and I heard delegates all around me getting to their feet out of cross lines. Then what about Michelle Obama? Also doing a great job as a model, who's particularly popular. And also seeing people raise signs and banners saying, history toward the end of the night.

When Alicia Keys gave her shout out both Hillary Clinton's supporters and to Bernie Sanders' supporters and talked about the need for party unity. People cheered as well. So out on the floor, it was very much that kind of celebration of party unity that the Democrats had been hoping for.

Even though outside maybe the picture shifted a little bit. It's gonna be much harder for Democrats to project a united threat against he Republicans in November when they're still dealing with this kind of fracturedness inside their party.
