Party Unity in NH, as Clinton Talks and Obama Says "She Rocks"

Note: Please upgrade your Flash plug-in to view our enhanced content.

Former rivals Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton appeared together for the first time since the Democratic primary ended. Clinton pledged to throw her full support behind Obama. (Video by the Associated Press.)

By Shailagh Murray
UNITY, N.H. -- Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton launched her presidential campaign as the prohibitive favorite, but today she passed the torch to rival Barack Obama in their first joint public appearance since the Illinois senator clinched the Democratic nomination.

The event launched a new phase of the 2008 campaign, with Clinton now one of Obama's most powerful surrogates, a vital link to the 18 million voters who backed the New York senator during the primary season. Obama needs these Democrats in his corner now, to beat GOP Sen. John McCain in November.

"I know Senator Obama. I've served with him in the Senate for four years. I've campaigned with and against him for lots of months," Clinton told a crowd of 4,000, who had gathered in an elementary school field on a steamy afternoon. "So I've had a front row seat to his candidacy. And I've seen his strength and his determination, his grace and his grit."

Some of her supporters weren't quite ready to let go. "We want Hillary!" a handful of Clinton fans shouted during her speech. "It's over!" an Obama voter shot back.

"We cannot let this moment slip away," Clinton pressed. "For anyone who voted for me and who is now considering not voting, or voting for Sen. McCain, I strongly urge you to reconsider. I urge you to remember what we are standing for in this election."

When it was Obama's turn to pile on the plaudits, another voice in the crowd yelled, "She rocks." Obama answered, "She rocks, she rocks. That's the point I'm trying to make."

Re: No Deal

As I declared, this year's election was over when Senator Obama wrote a $2300 check as a "gesture" to Senator Hillary Clinton.

It could be acceptable if Obama offered such "gesture" to Hillary right after the nomination fight or even before hiring Solis Dolye. When voters complained, then Obamas wrote $4600.

Obama does not have any fundamental, basic morality and human dignity. If you betray such basic morality, then you are not worth of being any politicians. Voters want real people who have sense of morality and loyalty.

If I were Hillary, I would not accept any offer of being his VP or "compromise" any offers whatsoever. She fought hard, under such constrained rules, to prove that Obama is not qualified. Putting a one-line "VP job" does not help her political career.

This year's Election depends on Independents and Women. Voters do not buy any false promises or compromised deals that offend our basic principles and values as Americans. If Obama thought that Hillary can be retired by money, then he made a serious mistake by selling voices of 18 million voters.

The Democratic Party also should pick a different date for its Convention: Obama is neither Black nor Liberal. Do not insult Dr. Martin L. King's legacy of Civil Rights Movement in the United States. Dr. King's message of "hope and dream" has nothing to do with Obama's message of "change"--if you remember how many times he has changed his words and deeds so far.

Obama has this election wrapped up.
Why? Because he is offering REAL change that represents Democratic values.
That's why.

People need to leave Michelle Obama alone... Cindy Hensley McCain has a horrible history of theft, stealing from charity, drug abuse, plagiarism, covering up extortion- all this despite the fact she grew up filthy rich and never had to work a hard day in her life. Why would someone with everything risk losing everything and how did she get away with what would put a common person in jail?

Dear Alan. You are so wrong it's sad. Obama has won in RURAL (not Rule) areas all across the country. If it was not for small town rural areas Obama would have lost. Look at NH, Nevada, Iowa, Montana, Alaska, Idaho, Maine, Hawaii, Wisconsin, Missouri. Now I might agree that in the south it was a bit different but that is simply because many white southerners are still undereducated and subsequently racist. I am not sure how much education you have Alan but you seem to not be well informed although I give you credit for reading the post.

Again this is phony--no deal. If Obama offered Hillary VP as a "symbolic gesture"
--at least before hiring Solis Doyle--that might have worked.

This is why the Democratic Party will lose again. You can't wear make-up if you do not have a face.

Hillary was beaten by a rookie Senator. In this context, the real question is why she got ONLY 17 Million votes. The best thing Obama can do is play nice with Hillary for a while, and then freeze her out of his campaign. Involving her corrupts his brand as a new kind of Democrat who can transcend the outmoded liberal-conservative divide.

I'll tell you why to care about stopping the hating on HRC- because for those people who are not as ideological as I am- I feel that I have to prevent another right wing presidency- the level of offence will not likely turn them to McCain, they will simply stay home. And as Barak continues to erode his high moral ground with opportunistic positioning, the enthusiasm among even supporters may wane- particularly the "liberals" who backed him despite his lack of progressive policy agenda- then the turnout advantage disappears and it becomes impossible to win MI, OH, MO, NH and NM, let alone VA, CO or NC.

Why are you so fixated on the hatred that you can't rationally observe that you need the people you are insulting.

I am sorry for insulting you- it was bad judgement on my part. It is just difficult to read repeated accusations, etc. with no foundation and no observations about your own candidate and the way the campaign is being run/ the way his supporters are acting.

UNITY? NO. NOT THIS YEAR.

Follow the money trail. It will lead you to information you need to know about Barack Obama. You may not like what you see.

It's Obama who is fearmongering. He's doing it every day with women on Roe v Wade. Women's issues are about far more than the single issue of abortion. The scare tactics on Roe won't work this year. The Dems have failed women in 2008. Paybacks are hell, but necessary.

UNITY? NO. NOT THIS YEAR.

visit womenforfairpolitics.com

Obama is unqualified and unelectable.

It's a political eternity until the end of August when the DNC holds the convention in Denver when the ACTUAL vote for the nominee takes place. Until then, let the long overdue vetting of Barack Obama finally begin. Anything can happen and most likely will. Let's hope for the total political implosion of Barack Obame BEFORE the Dems foolishly nominate him.

It's Hillary or McCain. Put your country first and party second.

The Democratic party must be held accountable for their failure to denounced the rampant sexism, racism, classism, and voter disenfranchisement continually interjected into this 2008 campaign debacle by Barack Obama, his campaign, his nasty supporters and ALL media. HIllary Clinton was villified 24/7 in ALL media and the DNC stood silent. In fact, the DNC is complicit indisenfranchising voters. It's unacceptable. To vote for Obama is to condone what he and the DNC have done. Don't do it.

The DNC understands two things, money and votes. WE have the power to with hold both. DO SO.

The MEDIA will NOT decide this election, the people WILL. The Obamarama has been a media driven illusion.

While Ariana Huffington is a no-nothing who is famous because of being dumped by a millionaire who thought he could by the California Gubernatorial seat (apparently in CA you have to be a millionairre who also stars in bad action films nowadays...), I think it is important that we don't label her because of her gender- she is not a bxtch and neither is any other woman. A bxtch is a female dog and the whole concept came because dogs can be very promiscous- except that that is much more true with male dogs. Anyway- I think that dismantling the sexism that was allowed during this campaign starts with us, her supporter, never using words like bxtch or ho. Ariana is a moron- but not a female dog.

Was just watching Larry King and that two faced bi**h Arianna was on; of course, being the shrill anti-Clinton rat that she is, for many minutes she could n't say anything nice about HRC, even as they kept playing snippets of the Unity sham today. Finally, she ventured to say that Clinton was a great role model, that daughter who "voted Obama" still admired Hillary etc (she made sure that she was not one admiring HRC).

What a bloody hypocrite, fits like a glove with the rest of the NObama sleazy campaign. This Rethuglican turned democrat nut case, was on the forefront of hatchet jobs against HRC. Her useless website was so full of anti-CLinton drivel day-in day-out, and she was practically sleeping with Chris Matt**ck**hews and Olberfartman in spewing anti-Clinton rhetoric every day. Six months ago, I posted a CLinton supportive post on her lousy website, and they immediately canceled my login, while every roughneck that wanted to call Clinton any sexist epithet was given a green light.

Now this two faced snake is smiling and pimping for NObama so they can have their sham unity and have their sleaze bag elected.

These scumbags must think Clinton supporters are Alzheimer affected, or that we have 2 minutes of memory. Every single word that these rascals have uttered over the last few months, playing race and sex cards endlessly, is all etched in my and I suspect many Clinton supporters' minds.

So, NObama groupie gutter rats, take your sham Unity and stick it up your &*(. That 53% of Clinton supporters' now being for NObama is a typo - they are being polite, and when Nov comes, that will be close 80% who will either vote McCain or stay home.

You continue to insult my candidate for the nomination, even after I and millions of others have accepted your very faulty candidate.

Drop the stupid Bosnia thing:
Embellishing a story is not half the lie that promising one thing on NAFTA and sending your people to tell Canada that it you are not serious is.

It's not half the lie that saying you were going to accept public financing, and basing the difference between you and your opponent in the nomination on it, and then renegging is.

It's not half the lie that saying you backed gun control for the nomination and then mincing words for it to appease gun owners is.

It's not half the lie that opposing FISA in rhetoric but not in votes is.

His lies are policy lies- they impact you and me. Her embelishment was embarassing, but get over it, we've all embelished stories in the past

You need to stop the hating on her. It is offending the 1/2 of us who voted for her. I have been a loyal Dem out of pragmatism since age 13. I have volunteered and marched for things dozens of times- who the hell are you to insult my choice with personal insults rather than any policy arguments. GROW UP. You will lose enough of her voters to lose close states if you don't.

I will vote for Barak regardless- even if I feel that he is all cart and no donkey. However, it is really distressing for someone who has been involved as much as I have to be constantly having to defend my Senator and choice- particularly against those of you who just realized that there is a process or those who voted for W in the past and kinda' jump on the bandwagon.

As it stands my vote for Barak is my last vote as a Dem. I'm done with pragmatism. I'm voting for some ultra-leftie who actually has principles and plans and sticks with them. Barak has neither and thus doesn't have to stick with anything.

In 3 weeks, we've got two great Senators standing together, emphasizing what's important -- a Democratic victory in the fall. They are there, I'm hopeful supporters from both camps will get there. In the meantime, I am grateful to Sen. Clinton for her great speech and vigorous efforts and hope that her own supporters join the Obama donors in helping her to retire her debt. Ironic that those yelling for her the loudest seem to be the ones with their coin purses closed the most.

Obama's life has been scrutinized from birth. Let's put John McCain under the microscope too. Here's a few facts about John McCain:


- In 2007, McCain voted in agreement with Bush 95% of the time.
- Up through May 15, 2008, voted in agreement with Bush 100% of the time.
- Graduated from Annapolis Naval Academy with class rank of 894 ut of 899 cadets.
- Lost 5 military aircraft while a Navy pilot.
- Left his first wife after she was permanently injured in a horrific car accident for beer heiress Cindy McCain.
- For decades McCain has been voting against a woman's right to choose, sex education and contraceptives.
- McCain was one of the members of the Keating Five savings and loan scandal that bilked tens of thousands out of their retirement savings.
- McCain did not support the Lilly Ledbetter equal pay for women legislation.
- Even though he and Cindy's combined yearly income is over $6 million per year, McCain received tax-free military disability pension in the amount of $58,358 for the year 2007 at the rate of 100%. That would be fine if he would support the same benefits for our current troops and veterans, but he doesn't. He was against the new GI Bill and regularly votes against legislation that would help our troops and veterans. Facts are available at www.StopThinkVote.com/votes.html.


There are many strong indications that the military draft is coming back. Read the facts and judge for yourself:

Under McCain's leadership our troops are much more likely to get on-the-job training for years to come. I envision a better future I want for my young sons.

1. Embraced Rev. Wright for twenty years then denounced him and abandoned his Church. I do not think he would leave Wright's Church if he is not running for President.
2. Said would Withdraw military forces in Iraq immediately and now in two years.
3. Will accept Public Fund for campaign and now refused it.
4. Supported gun Control and now applaud Hight Court decision related to Washington DC ban on Gun Control
Watch out how many more promises he would break especially when he were elected President

There have been two presidents who tried to rule essentially as kings, Richard Nixon and George W Bush. Both believed whatever presidents ordered was legal, especially in the name of "national security" or as commander-in-chief. Neither seemed to have much regard for the Constitution. Nixon resigned before being removed from office by Congress. Bush should have been impeached, but the Democrats in Congress have been meek sheep since the late 1990's.

There have been seminal changes in politics and the political parties since the early 1970's. In 1974 the majority of Democrats and a conscentious minority of Republicans were able to unite to bring impeachment proceedings against Nixon. However, Democrats in Congress since 2002 have acquiesed in presidential abuse of power more serious than the Watergate scandal. The Republican party, except for a few libertarians who actually think the Constitution should be respected, have openly endorsed these abuses of power.

The recent flip flops by Barack increasingly suggest he may not quite be the agent of change he offers himself as being. Forget the public financing issue, most of us do not care about this, being of very minor importance compared to the war in Iraq, universal health care, high inflation, public safety, mostly mediocre public schools, etc.

However, anyone who votes for McCain is in a very real sense voting for a third Bush-Cheney term: continuing the occupation of Iraq indefinitely, belligerent foreign policies, favoring the wealthy and corporations, neglecting the needs of the poor and needy, being opposed to meaningful health care expansion, appointing very conservative federal judges and possibly Supreme Court justices, etc.

Dear GOD,
How are you? Of course, good.
I know it's been a long time since we've communicated...
We used to be such great friends...
That whole 'whose Throne is it' thing got waay out of control. I really apologize for the times I sat in it not even knowing you were already there. But I digress

I was just wondering GOD,
now that your nation has granted retro-active immunity to some of my people... (btw God, you know it's funny I used to think other nations were talking about me when they were calling your nation the Great Satan... but I digress) ... the point is: How about you granting me retroactive immunity and instead of opposing one another, I would just work under you - like before - only this time I won't get so full of myself.

Btw: that whole Job thing was not just me... I'm just sayin': if I take possession of the heart and mind of someone, I'd like to know that I'm not going to be punished for it later - after all, it IS part of what I do. I mean you make the laws to break them right? Your nation does.

Anyway, I hope you give it serious consideration (wink, wink) and let me know when I can come sit by your side again.

Racism...and psychology
Why we dislike, stereotype, and hate other groups and what to do about it...
What is prejudice?
Simply put, prejudice is bias. Prejudice refers to the negative opinions, judgments, beliefs, and feelings we hold about individuals because of their membership in certain groups or categories. When these negative views lead us to act in certain ways toward these individuals and groups, the result is discrimination.
Racial prejudice is one form of prejudice. Racial prejudice is prejudice that is based on membership in racial groups. The issue of whether humans are grouped into "races" naturally, or whether "race" is a concept which we use to categorize people but which has no scientific basis, is addressed below.
What is racism?
Racism is racial prejudice that has been incorporated into the activities and procedures of major institutions, corporations, social systems (such as those related t housing, education, and health), and other arenas of major social activity (such as politics, the media, finance, and banking). Racism serves both to discriminate against ethnic minorities and to maintain advantages and benefits for White Americans.
Why should we keep talking about prejudice and racism - aren't they on the way out? Hasn't there been so much change in society already?
It would be nice if prejudice and racism were on the decline. But it doesn't seem to be that way. A 1990 study found that a majority of Whites rated African Americans and Hispanics as less intelligent than themselves. A majority of Whites also thought African Americans and Hispanics are prone to violence and would rather be on welfare than work. These attitudes are not harmless. These prejudices not only are the basis for individual acts of discrimination, but they also allow people to justify unfair and destructive institutional and corporate practices. excerpt from what was Written by ...At the request of the American Psychological Association

but what can we do?

The amount of hate and regurgitated propaganda on this thread is sad for this Clinton supporter. In all the threads I've read I haven't heard one person talking about the issues. Whether it is undercover conservatives or disaffected liberals writing these responses, the fact that people go first with slander instead of intellectual discussion in order to win the presidency is one reason why America is in such a mess.

I'm voting for Obama because of his stance on investing in alternative energy (instead of a lottery like super-battery cell), his position on the war (instead of going to war with all the radical fundamentalists and disaffecting the moderate muslims, try to win over the MAJORITY moderate muslim populations and give them power to police the relatively few radical ones), his position on the economy (try to reduce the gap b/w rich and poor, get a middle class back), and much and many more besides. Note that my positions have never hinged on gender, race, age, or even political affiliation.

Funny thing is, I was more a McCain supporter in 2000 than I am now, as he appears to now be running with the very same political mechanics that were instrumental in the current administration's disastrous reign. Also, I don't share many of his pro-war stances, his social beliefs, off-shore drilling initiatives, and gun control stance.

I also volunteered for every Democratic presidential candidate out of pragmatism- they are the closest we get to anyone representing the left in the broken 2 party system since Mondale at age 13. I worked for Jackson in 88, Dinkins (mayor) in 89, B. Kerry in 92, W. Clark in 04...marched for various causes, etc.

So please don't disrespect my choice on nonissue insults- I don't do that to Barak. He has some problems with issues. More rhetoric than tangible ideas. Yet I will be voting for him. I'm still pragmatic. I think you all better learn to be soon because it feels pretty awful to be on this side of the insults.

PUMAs are real. We will not vote for Obama - get that? Pass us off as Republican plants at your own risk.

Obama is the ultimate unqualified political flip-flopper and panderer, par excellence. And he has some pretty crooked friends (see Boston Globe's article from today), makes you wonder how deep he is in all that muck.

No, Hillary should not run as his running mate. She will have to coach the poor sod on a daily basis (remember the 57 states, dead people in the audience, Auschwitz and much more) - Obama is ignorant and intellectually lazy. Let Obama lose the election all by himself and Hillary will be President in 2012.

BTW, people that think Pelosi (the ultimate backroom dealer), McCaskill (the backstabbing panderer), Sebelius (boring as a floor board) can hold a candle to Hillary, you are deluded and delusional. Pelosi and Sebelius both are scions of powerful political families, so excuse me, they did not get to where they did simply on merit alone. McCaskill won her seat by pandering to the liberals and AAs in St Louis - does that remind you of someone you are supporting?

Go PUMAs.

OBAMA HAS CONFIRMED THE COMMON MYTH THAT FOR VOTES POLITICIANS KISS YOUR A*/**.
FEW WEEKS AGO HE DID NOT KNOW WHO HE IS COMPETING WITH HILLARY OR BILL AND PRESIDENT CLINTON WAS A RACIST. WHAT HAPPENED TO THE NOTION OF FIRST BLACK PRESIDENT OF AMERICA. IT IS OBAMA,S RACE CARD THAT TURNED BLACKS AWAY FROM CLINTONS.
IN A WAY THEY PROVED A THANKLESS BUNCH.
TODAY OBAMA IS CROWING THAT AMERICA NEEDS CLINTONS. WE DO NOT NEED TO BE TOLD BY A SELFISH WIND BAG THAT AMERICA NEEDS CLINTONS.
THE FACT IS THAT HE NEED CLINTONS OTHERWISE HE WILL PROVE TO BE A BUBBLE THAT BURST SOON.
I NEVER EXPECTED A POLITICIAN SO KNIVING DECIETFUL AND SHAM.

Today's Unity event felt more like Obama pimping out Hillary. She needs money, he's got. It's Obama saying to Hillary, you want some money go out there and smile and do a nice little dance for me, and don't forget to wear something nice.
I wonder how big the "carbon footprint" was they created by having this little Obaman 'n Hillary show in NH instead of DC? Where is NH anyway?

I feel truly bad for those individuals posting comments that criticize Obama simply because of his given name is "Hussein". These people not only demonstrate to readers their lack of decency, but they reveal their inadequacies, failures, and bitterness in this life.

Sebelius is probably the best female choice, Fallon or Webb for military, Hagel for crossing the aisle, Biden on experience, Hillary for votes or probably the chosen one Bill Richardson for foreign experience, Catholic candidate, hispanic candidate that endorsed him when he saw it was over.

That so called Hillary supporters are threatening to vote for McSame is simply not credible. These are posts from Republican trolls disguised as Hillary women. Note that McSame attacks Obama for refusing public funding after saying he will consider it is simply incredible--McSame accepted public funding for the primaries when he couldn't raise any, then after using that for collateral for a bank loan, and after he began to raise lots, he simply illegally backed out of this contract, for which he can spend FIVE years in jail. This is not the pot calling the kettle. This is the felon attacking a righteous man. I will rather be called "sweetie" by Obama than "C**T" by McSame, what McSame called his second wife Cindy in front of reporters. He's committed adultery, dumped his disabled wife for a 20 year younger multi-millionaire heiress, throws red-faced "F**K You"s around at reporters, witnesses and colleagues, was found guilty of money cronyism and corruption with the Keating Five case, etc, etc. His Crooked Talk Express took the low road a long time ago.

The Repug underground can surf these channels all they want to.
We Democrats as drawing together, confronting our nation's common enemy, the GOP neo-cons, and we're going to defeat them.
Complain all you want, we will NEVER vote for 4 more years of this nightmare.
This country needs to return to its bedrock principles of justice, honor and dignity.
Those principles have had a rocky road the last 12 years, but it's over.
The GOP gravy train is derailing.
Our leaders are summoning us and we will be there to assure them that this is the year the Democrats will finally stand up, be counted and take back our country from the traitors trying to destroy it.
Go Democrats!

Mr. John McCain chose to be the Republican nominee in 2008 despite the overwhelming evidence that the Republicans will be crushed at the polls - simply because 2008 represents his last chance at the Presidency. After all, some Republican would have to fall on the live grenade of the Bush legacy - and McCain - always brave but never smart - charged to the front. He had no choice.

The Republican core is disheartened by the propsect of running against George W's abysmal record of econmoic disarray, foreign policy collapse and Homeland Security bungling.

Independents are shocked at the Republican borrow and spend policies in the Congress and White House and will reject the "old warrior" on the grounds that his avowed economic position of NO EarMarks - is superficial flatulence that does not ever address the underlying economic issues facing the country.

Indeed, McCain's approach to financial rigidity with earmarks - extends to his entire view of politica and world affairs - his understanding is a mile wide and an inch deep.

A superficial dilettante, McCain will attract to the polls only a third of the American Republican electorate and a few thousand former Hillary supporters who think that they matter.

Donna T and Sal

If you were such strong Clinton backers, can you honestly say that McCain's positions on Choice, Immigration, Health care,energy, the environment, the economy and Iraq are closer to what you believe than Obama's? If so, then how could you have backed Hillary? Do you think that 2-3 more Supreme Court justices appointed by McCain will support issues you believe in more than the justices Obama will appoint?
Yes, it hurts that your first choice lost. So did mine, but that doesn't say that Hillary was muscled aside or that she is entitled to the VP spot. To what end ?
She had a huge advantage and for lots of reasons of strategy, tactics and poor planning she lost the advantage and the nomination. It's time to move on and elect a Democrat in November, not a republican out of spite.

Obama is the Democratic nominee for president as such it is his choice for whom should be his V.P.

Hillary is definitely on the short list. But why? Let's be real and honest here. Hillary has attained her positions as First Lady, Senator, and Presidential Candidate because of Bill Clinton. Hillary is not a self-made political figure. She essentially road on the coat-tails of Bill Clinton.

There many self-made women political figures like Sebelius, Peloski, McCaskill, and others that Obama could select as V.P. without the baggage of Bill Clinton.

Posted by: Brandon | June 27, 2008 3:59 PM | Report abuse

Obama must carefully scrutinize the pros and cons of whether or not to choose Hillary Clinton as his running mate. If he chooses her, will Bill's past come to haunt?(I think this is a weak argument.) It is evident that he may not need her political pull; that he can stand on his own. But what about his statements in Unity, NH that Hillary had broken a glass ceiling and that any woman can become anything she wants in his new America? This statement becomes radically untrue if Hillary is NOT chosen as his running mate. He will ultimately send a powerful message to the American people that women can not attain the most powerful positions in our government. I, for one, would feel the betrayal of his words. I'm an Independent voter, not yet decided on my final vote. I'm hoping Obama reads this message from one concerned, well-educated, female American.
