-- Even before Sen. Hillary Clinton takes to the floor of the Democratic National Convention in Denver, Colorado, on Tuesday night, several of her die-hard supporters -- and delegates -- are looking for the New York senator to preach party unity.Sen. Hillary Clinton is expected to speak on party unity during day two of the convention in Denver, Colorado.
"The thing that I want to hear first is that she is satisfied on behalf of us and those who sent us that the platform reflects her policy priorities. ... If that has been improved since she campaigned, then that would be a good message," said John Settich, a pledged Clinton delegate from Kansas.
Another pledged Clinton delegate, James Pat Smith, said she needs to "remind people of why Barack Obama is much better than John McCain for anyone who supported her."
"She's going to have to help people remember what the elections about. It wasn't about Hillary; it was about policies," he added.
Allyson Story, an alternate Clinton delegate from Iowa, said she wants Clinton to say, "thanks a lot, and we need to move on to become a united party."
Clinton will call for her supporters to rally behind Sen. Barack Obama, said Doug Hattaway, a Clinton adviser who is part of the team crafting her speech. Watch Clinton walk through the convention stage »
"I think we are going to hear that theme again -- loudly, clearly and in a heartfelt way," he said.
The next day, the Democratic senator is expected to release all her delegates to Obama, bringing her White House run to an end.
For Lynn Wilson, a pledged Clinton delegate hailing from Minnesota, Clinton's speech must focus on the future.
"I want her to set the tone and the future for women, for our daughters, for everyone, for this country. She's going to give us direction; she's going to give us enthusiasm; she's going to make sure we are a united party -- because this is her moment, this is our moment, and this is our opportunity," she said.
A delegate from New York who is supporting Obama said Clinton needs to reassure Democrats that she and Obama are on the same page.
Gustavo Santos said he wants to hear "the same message she spoke to us at the breakfast on Monday, when she talked about uniting people and making sure that all of us have the same plan, and I think she could do that."
"I know Hillary for an awful long time, and I think she could do that," he added.
Other Clinton supporters, however, are still disgruntled by the way she was treated by DNC and Obama campaign officials. Some may even buck Clinton's plea to support the Illinois senator's presidential bid and jump across the aisle. iReport.com: Are you in Denver?
Michael Wagner, a delegate from Washington state, is supporting Clinton. Donning a Hillary Clinton T-shirt and buttons, Wagner said there's a "substantial amount" of Democratic delegates in Denver who will vote for McCain in November.
"I have not made a firm decision. I've been a lifelong Democrat since Bobby Kennedy was around. I've voted straight Democratic. ... It's going to be a pretty big decision," he added. "So I'm going to make my decision ... that I'm an American first. I'm going to vote for whoever is the best president."
Marnie Delano of New York said that nothing Obama could do "could ever make me change my mind. If Hillary isn't the candidate to be nominated, I will vote for John McCain." Watch the McCain campaign discuss attracting Clinton's supporters »
Delano and other Clinton supporters attended an Republican National Committee-sponsored Hillary Happy Hour in downtown Denver on Monday night.
Peter Henderson of Denver also attended the event. Although he is an independent who favors Clinton, he's leaning toward voting for McCain.
Henderson added that many of the undecided and disenfranchised Clinton supporters are looking at McCain as their last option, despite policy differences.
"It's true: The enemy of my enemy is my friend, and it seems like a lot of Hillary's voters don't want to vote for Barack Obama, so they come over to the McCain campaign," he said. iReport.com: Share your reaction to DNC speeches
Barry Terrebonne, a disabled veteran from Cutoff, Louisiana, and a longtime Clinton supporter, said McCain is the lesser of two evils.
"I'd rather vote McCain, because he's the least worst of the two ... because at least I know what he stands on. ... I was in search of a candidate who I could respect and support. ... At least I know [McCain] respects our country."
But Brenda Lin of Pennsylvania said that although she supports the New York senator and her historic campaign, she will not vote for McCain.
"We have reconciled our minds to that, but right now we want to make sure she's on the roll call, she gets her due for all the work and hardship she went through. She did get the popular vote. She deserves to be on the roll call."
"McCain is too conservative. He's too ... right wing ... similar tactics as Bush, similar policies ... and I don't think things are going to change enough ... with McCain. He's going to be pretty close to what we've already had," she said.
