Clinton and Obama Come Together

Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama appeared today in Unity, New Hampshire, their first public appearance together since Clinton suspended her campaign earlier this month. Describing her former rival as an “unstoppable force of change,” Clinton urged her supports to back Obama, obviously, saying, “To anyone who voted for me and is now considering not voting or voting for Senator (John) McCain, I strongly urge you to reconsider.” The Senator went on to equate McCain with George Bush, In the end, Senator McCain and President Bush are like two sides of the same coin, and it doesn’t amount to a whole lot of change. If you think we need a new course, a new agenda, then vote for Barack Obama and you will get the change that you need and deserve.”

Obama took the stage soon after, again stressing the need for – you guessed it! – unity. The Senator also stressed the importance of Bill and Hillary Clinton’s respective roles in his campaign:

We need them. We need them badly. Not just my campaign, but the American people need their service and their vision and their wisdom in the months and years to come because that’s how we’re going to bring about unity in the Democratic Party. And that’s how we’re going to bring about unity in America.

Talking Points Memo spliced together some highlights from today’s event, which we’ve included below. Meanwhile, the politicos appeared together last night to woo Clinton donors over to Obama’s team. And apparently with mixed reviews.

    They’re not fooling me. They can’t stand each other. But I understand it; I’ll help you with your campaign debt (she was going to balanace the budget?) and you and your slimy husband quit dissing me.

    Just what the country needs, a known lier and a “what me worry” lookalike with no idea except we can do it…what the hell does that mean. Maybe that refers to all the wonderful things the Dems have done in the last two years they were in charge…

  • while my nails are drying

    RCVP-you have every right to support and not support whoever you want, but I got to tell you that your post make you look like some
    white trash, squeel like a pig redneck who says shit like”I aint queer cause I don’t kiss em”. Have a little self respect and present yourself in a more dignified matter. If you have an argument against Obama or Hilary then there is an intelligent way of presenting it. I have a pedicure in 30 minutes and my tech hates it when I am late, so try to kill each other until I get back.

    I miss Hillary already. (Hillary, not to be confused with the known liar Bill, who happened to lead our country through 8 very prosperous years). Hillary for VP 2008.
