Who were those guys behind Obama?

CNN

Watch those guys that were behind Obama.

(CNN) - The Internet has been abuzz since Sen. Barack Obama gave his concession speech Tuesday after losing the Pennsylvania Democratic primary to rival Sen. Hillary Clinton.  But, all  the talk hasn't been about anything said by Obama.  Instead, the attention has been focused on the three young men who were behind Obama wearing Abercrombie and Fitch t-shirts.

Watch John Roberts and Kyra Phillips interview "the Abercrombie guys" in this clip from American Morning.

    Dear Sharon,

    A failed campaign is when you are behind in the delegate count, the popularity count and the number of states. You do the math.

    Cranky, cranky.....it is a feature story, not the lead on their program. Lighten up! Lots of us noticed it and it doesn't hurt anyone to ask them what the deal was. It's not like they called it breathless breaking news or anything. It's spring – go have an ice cream cone. You'll feel better!!

    This must be another company will be giving Obama big bucks for the advertisement of their goods. You have to give this guy credit, he knows how to get money. This sure wasn't an accident that they were all behind Obama. Ya think!

    Obama is simply and candidly, UNELECTABLE. He was a great news story for awhile, but that tide has turned.
    Get real independents and dems...vote for a realistic candidate in the election, who can do the job. Otherwise please dont' bother going to those booths...
    Clinton can deliver. Obama, with his huge margin of supporters, money , crazy preacher entourage etc CANNOT even close the primary deal, what will he deliver in office for us? No hope no change!!
    Those are the facts, and the stark reality. Hope , change, sounds pretty but sounds like a fairy tale to me! lol

    Clinton should shake Obamas hand and go to the kitchen because she will never make commander in chief.
