WASHINGTON (CNN) - Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama and his defeated rival Sen. Hillary Clinton Monday announced the location for their first joint appearance - the town of Unity, New Hampshire.
As if the town's name didn't make the message clear enough, the Obama campaign pointed out in announcing the event that the two candidates got the same number of votes when New Hampshire held its primary in January, 107 each.
The Obama campaign calls the event a "Unite for Change Rally."
I’m not interested in the phoniness of some obligatory “joint appearance.” I’m not that easily impressed. Clinton put so much energy and conviction behind her relentless attacks on Obama during the primaries that I’m afraid she’s lost all credibility as a unifying force going into the general election. Which is the real Hillary? Who should we believe? Was she just kidding about all that negative stuff? I don't think so. Now that she’s dutifully sung Obama’s praises in round two of her required concession speech, I think she needs to recede into the background, quietly raise money for the Dems, stop riding Obama’s wave of success as if she’s got anything to do with it, and leave unifying the party to those who haven’t been so hell-bent on dividing it.
Obama supporters.... Hillary NEVER belittled Obama.
Obama belittled her... Annie Oakley comments, brushing her off his shoulders, labeling her a racist and painting her as a washington insider.
IT IS YOUR HATRED THAT DEFEATED HER.
Obama stole this election.
Keep on hating as we keep on defecting.
Why do you think speaking at the graduation was damage control? Clinton made a promise to the young lady four years ago to speak at this graduation. The young lady introduced Clinton as her "aunt", so this was obviously a personal obligation not a political one. Should she have broken her promise?
Denise Quinton you sound racist shut up. You dont trust Obama, its Hillary shouldn't be trust, she is only campaigning to keep her senate job.
Be Honest Denise you are racist and dont want a black man for President.
I can never vote for Obama or the democrats now after the way they trashed, bashed, disrespected Senator Clinton.
The DNC swifboated their own best candidate.
We will not march to their corrupt tune.
I am 53 years old and voted in every election since I turned old enough. For the first time in my life, I will be voting republican in November. Obama is not qualified for president and offers no solid plan, it is all sweet talk.
No, I will be voting McCain. At least the devil I know is better than the one hiding behind pretty words.
The 'plain and simple' fact of this is she lost. Not cheated from her, stolen from her, nothin'. She lost. Somebody had to, and it was her.
Now it is time to start talking about the nominee that the party chose and how we can help him defeat the nominee of the other party, who by the way is not being dragged down by Huckabee claiming that he should have been the nominee.
Alice from Florida,
What is voting for John McCain going to accomplish for you and your love ones? I bet you can not even answer this question. If you guys are not rich then you are a fool like the rest of the non rich people voting for John McCain. You and voters like you are going to see first hand what John McCain is all about if he becomes President. I just hope you don't have any family members in the military because with him in Office you will not see them in a long time or not at all! But then again, you and voters like you will get what you deserve for being idiots!
"appear" is the operative word
Love you, Hillary.
We will remember what they did to you in the booth in Nov.
Hillary will be heading back to the Senate soon... she can start collecting her lobbyist money again and building up her depeletd bank accounts.....
