According to The Hill, Bernie Sanders' campaign manager Jeff Weaver is appealing to supporters to stop shouting to lock Hillary Clinton up.
"I know emotions are running high right now, but I think people really have to consider the implications of what a [Donald] Trump presidency would mean for those of us who support the kind of agenda that Bernie Sanders has laid out for the country," Weaver, who served as campaign manager for Sanders’s presidential bid, told The Hill in a brief interview at the Wells Fargo Center.
Monday's convention theme is unity. There has been real progress toward moving closer to Bernie Sanders' chief points. We've fought it in the primaries and it's been taken to the streets.
It's time to take it to the ballot box.
UPDATED: John Amato:
Bernie Sanders sent out an email to his delegates asking them not to boo, turn their backs, walk out or be part of any other similar displays of disunity.
Good on him!

Bernie Sanders' fmr Nat'l Press Sec also tries to be a unifying presence:
But let me be clear - NO ONE STOLE THIS ELECTION! Team Sanders we did AMAZING WORK. But we lost. It's a hard reality for some.
