(Newser) – Many Hillary Clinton supporters still won't vote for Obama despite her calls for unity last night at the Democratic Convention, the Washington Post reports. "Even if she can move on easily, that's not as easy for everybody else," said one Clinton supporter. Dissatisfied loyalists set up a Clinton campaign museum, led a parade, and lit thousands of candles in a park.

"We are on the same team, and none of us can sit on the sideline," said Clinton. But while some delegates agreed it was time to endorse Obama, others will defiantly throw their weight behind John McCain. "I hate Obama so much that I'm going to devote as much time to McCain as I did to Hillary," said one bitter Clintonite. (Read more Hillary Clinton stories.)
