Some sad faces in Hillaryland

From NBC/NJ's Carrie Dann
DENVER, Colo. -- On the night of a powerful message of unity delivered by a resolute Hillary Clinton, you'd think that the New York senator's former staff members would be uplifted, inspired, and energized.

Not so much.
 
"Where's the nearest river I can throw myself in?" asked one forlorn former aide exiting the Pepsi Center.
 
"I might cry," said another.
 
"Let's drink."
 
Former staffers agreed that Hillary Clinton's speech was on-point, effective and exquisitely delivered. But their frustration over her endorsement of Obama, rather than the nominating speech for which they long worked in vain, was palpable.
 
Some said they might not attend Obama's Invesco Field speech on Thursday at all.
