Obama & Clinton Meet to Unify the Democratic Party

by MullOverThis

I don’t think these two have the power to unify the Democratic Party.  They do, however, have the ability to put differences aside and make the best of the mayhem.  Obama and Clinton have negotiations underway with the genius of a familiar attorney to both of them–their book deal patron,  Robert B. Barnett.

Reputedly at issue are some housecleaning concerns such as Hilary’s campaign debt, her role in the upcoming national convention and on the campaign road, and the use of Clinton’s former staff in Obama’s campaign.  My advice to Senator Obama and his assortment of advisors is well represented in a mulloverthis comment posted on the Root:

“…To all Obamaites who think that he can win without the support of Clintonites, think again.  Obama BARELY won the popular vote.  According to presidential history, he did not prevail in enough key states to beat McCain in the delegate counts either.  Hilary moreso prevailed in the “major” states.  Unity–or at least settling for best of the least– is a prerequiste for Obama to be our next president.  So, Obama and his deluded champions need to calm down and figure out how to secure Hilary supporter votes and those of non-war non-Bush republicans.  That is the only way Obama has a chance.  Remember, he hardly beat Hilary, who could follow the leads of the other democratic presidential campaign drop-outs:  Hold a press conference, endorse Barack, and go on vacation. ” 

In other words, Obama needs to try his best to supplement Hilary Clinton’s expenses for the national convention and make Clintonites feel well-adjusted in transitioning to his camp, at least to the millions that will take the leap. Let this quest for unity be a litmus test for Obama’s ability to unify America. 

Obama, we are watching. You ought to be able to converge with one commander-in-chiefing woman.
