Let Us Talk

Senators Clinton and Obama Will Unite In Unity, NH

  Obama is whispering to Hillary, “Let us kick some republican azz!” And do you see her smiling?  She agrees with him!

How poetic is this?  According to the Obama campaign, Senators Clinton and Obama will travel to Unity, New Hampshire — a small town on the state’s western border where both candidates received exactly 107 votes in the January primary.

The joint rally is the first time the two candidates will appear together in public since Obama clinched the nomination. By embracing Obama, Clinton is signaling to her backers that she is with him and supports him and so should they.

It is also a way to stave off media speculation about tension between the two camps, fed for instance by Obama’s recent hiring of an exiled former Clinton aide to assist his eventual vice-presidential pick.

“She is deeply committed to the task of helping him bring her people back in,” said Matt Bennett, a veteran Democratic strategist and co-founder of Third Way, a moderate Democratic organization. “She thinks all this talk about Clinton ‘refuseniks’ is idiotic and she understands the difference between McCain and Obama is massive.”

Is this symbolism or what?

  3. For Obama’s sake I hope they don’t “bump fists” at the rally! =)

    I can only imagine how Fox News would spin it. “Obama bumps second fist in as many weeks. Could this be the start of an insidious pattern?”

  10. It is indeed symbolism … blunt symbolism, too. Nothing like being hit over the head with a stick. Seriously, though, I’m glad she’ll be out there, stumping for him.

  11. Deanna — nothing suttle about them uniting in unity. They are both great democrats. It will be good to see them together in togetherness.
