WASHINGTON (CNN) - One after another, they jumped ship and left Sen. Hillary Clinton's campaign to back her Democratic rival, Sen. Barack Obama. And while the chapter on her campaign may be closed, there are still open wounds over those who've crossed the Clintons.
"So today, I am standing with Sen. Obama to say, 'yes we can!' " Clinton said on Saturday.
Yes, Clinton can support Obama in his race for the presidency. But as for the former Clinton supporters who switched sides, forgiving and forgetting might not come that easily.
The New York Times reported that some Clinton loyalists have been keeping tabs on those who have crossed the Clintons.
But CNN contributor and longtime Clinton backer James Carville told CNN's Wolf Blitzer Wednesday that article is "laughable."
"It's a very silly piece ... There really wasn't a list ... It's laughable. I talked to a lot of people in Clinton land today and they're not even sure what the point of the story was," he said.
One former Clinton adviser, however, said there's no doubt some have forever burned bridges with the power couple.
