    Bernie Sanders supporters in San Francisco were ecstatic to see the onetime presidential hopeful take the stage one more time Monday night at the Democratic National Convention, but it wasn't the speech they were hoping for.

    After an extended ovation, Sanders told a raucous crowd in Philadelphia it was time for the Democratic party to unite, that Hillary Clinton must win.

    "I'm depressed because I fought hard for Bernie Sanders," said Katherine Robert, a volunteer at Sanders' San Francisco headquarters.

    "I believe when he says he will work to get her elected," Robert added. "Will I vote for her? No way."

    Some Clinton supporters hope Sanders' endorsement makes a difference.

    "She has to do a lot of work to bridge that gap," said Veronica Vazquez of San Francisco. "She doesn't galvanize young people. She has an uphill battle."

    Brian Dill, of San Francisco, said Sanders' backing is key for the party as a whole.

    "He gave a lot of hope," Dill said. "He's still going to have a voice moving forward, that voting for Hillary will help him achieve some of his objectives."
