In a show of unity, former presidential candidate Bernie Sanders nominated his rival Hillary Clinton on Tuesday at the Democratic National Convention.

Bernie Sanders stood up at the end of the roll call of states and asked delegates to accept Hillary Clinton’s nomination unanimously and by acclimation.

“I move that Hillary Clinton be selected as the nominee of the Democratic party for President of the United States,” Sanders told the convention.

The move came as Sanders attempted to settle down his rowdy supporters, at times getting booed by his own backers as he called for Democratic unity.

Despite the criticism Sanders received from his supporters, the senator put the Democratic Party above his own ego. Sanders, who has been treated terribly by the DNC and former chairwoman, Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, had every reason to trash Clinton and the Democratic Party.  However, unlike Senator Ted Cruz who used his appearance at the GOP Convention to serve his own ego by trying to undermine Donald Trump, Sanders showed class and respect for the nominee.
