(CNN) – Hillary Clinton’s former director of women’s outreach has become the latest presidential campaign staffer for the New York senator to join Barack Obama’s general election team.
Dana Singiser, a former staff director of the Senate Democratic Steering and Outreach Committee led by Clinton, will fill the same strategic role she held on the Clinton campaign, heading strategic management of women's vote outreach.
"I am thrilled that Dana will continue her work with women voters on behalf of Sen. Obama," Clinton said in a statement released by Obama’s campaign Tuesday. "It is so important that we elect a Democrat to the White House, and women will be critical in that effort. I know that the women who joined my campaign will continue to work with Dana and with me to make sure Barack Obama is the next President of the United States."
Former Clinton campaign manager Patti Solis Doyle - who made a headline-grabbing exit from the top spot in after disappointing results early in the cycle - was tapped by the Obama team several weeks ago as chief of staff for the eventual vice presidential nominee.
Other Clinton staffers and advisers to join Obama’s campaign since the end of the primary season include former her former policy director, Neera Tanden.
Yea Obama!!!! Yes We Can!!!!
Way to go Democrats – let's all come together for the GREATER good!! Now, come on Independents and disgruntle Republicans, let's get the best hope for America in office......Barack Obama!
I will not vote for the Dem for the 1st time since I was 18 yrs old and was able to vote. I wish they had a lever that stated NONE OF THE ABOVE
Get a life Freida!
I'm suprised she is still willing to help the little flip flop artist.
One reason he beat her is the Iraq thing and now he's sounding
like John McAcain twin.
I was going to back him because she's behind him but with all
these flip flops, I count at least 4 or 5 major ones, he's saying
what it takes to get elected, anything, good speeches, no
substance, I'm staying home in november.
I am a hard core PUMA for life. I am rasing my kids to be proud PUMAs and we will rail raod any chance that Elitests educated people become president. We are 18 million strong and live in Ohio, south PA, and west VA and most of Apalachia which are key states.
Your just mad that your canidate lost so you are costing the vote of the democratic ticket. Hilary and Obama are so identical. I voted for hilary but i understand that obama is still an inspirational change prophet. Get over teh whole "Obamas not reaching out to us!" WAAA, why should he pay attention to one peticular group that wont make a difference? Get over your stupid ego and just vote democrat!
IN YOUR FACE MCCAIN!
how is this news? it would be more news if she jumped party lines and went to McCain
Please try to hold the hateful comments on this website. It's the "WE" that will build our country up again. It really won't matter who is in the White House as long as "WE" hold them accountable. It is in the long run all about what "WE" do. I would like CNN to require full names and e-mail addresses shown to be able to post comments. Anonymity allows such bizarre and off the cuff comments to be seen. Please think about what we are all saying. It doesn't help to create more division.
Freida- why? What is so wrong with Obama that you would choose to vote for McCain? As a woman, you should know that he has an abismal voting record on issues that relate directly to you: he opposed an equal pay bill for women, he supports overturning Roe v. Wade, he opposes comprehensive sex ed, he opposed requiring insurance coverage of prescription birth control, he opposed Title X, the nation's family planning program. Not to mention he cheated on his wife to be with Cindy McCain.
The list goes on. How can your options be two diametrically opposed individuals?
Excellent decision, it will take the bright minds of of both campaigns to achieve victory for the democractic party.
freida,nyc.we dont want you if you are dumb.
And thats why ur a moron, Freida.
power to the great people of the usa
Freida I mean no disrespect, but I feel sorry for you. You are so narrow minded that you are willing to put McCain into the Whitehouse simply because Sen. Clinton lost? I think that is terrible, anything would be better than four more years of Bush-like policies for this country. I sincerely hope that by November you have changed your mind.
Unless Hillary is VP, Obama will not get my vote or my money!
By the way, BOB, much to your disappointment...this PUMA is
thirty, married with children, and an attorney. Your fantasy that all Clinton supporters are senior citizens, retired, or gay is hogwash. Plus, Obama better hope that he gets the senior citizen vote and the gay vote. Bob, get a life. Obama won, but Hillary is still the better candidate. This last week has proven just how inexperienced Obama is. Hopefully, the DNC will recognize the truth, and put Hillary on the ticket so that Obama will have help in running the country. He will need it if he wants to be a two term President.
If you PUMA people are serious, you are truly misguided.
How can 4 (or 8) years of McCain make sense to you? Even Hillary said her differences with Obama are nothing compared to her differences with McCain.
I hope you are just a bunch of "undercover" Republicans.
Freida in NYC:
It is true that it is your right to vote for whomever you choose, but I for the life of me can not understand your stance of Hillary or McCain end of story. These are two individuals that have nothing in common as far as ideals go but just for spite you would vote for a totally different party. That is just sad............
Democrats are in it to win the election in November. It is time to move on and forget the past. We cannot change the past nor live in the past. It is just what it says it is: the past. As Senator Obama and Clinton came together to win as a party, so must the people. God bless America.
Clinton supporters who refuse not to vote for Obama should just come out and say I'm a racist instead of the BS about his policies because 95% of Clinton and Obama's policies are similar.
Team Obama –
Keep banging away and you'll get the majority of the thinking women.
You'll bring more 18 to 24 year olds to the voting boths than ever before.
You've energized the Democratic base
You're pulling Indepedents & Republicans that have tired of the rhetoric and divissive ways of the current administration and its proxies.
If you stay on message and pursue McCain RELENTLESSLY, he will fall.
Your coalition is simply too broad and too strong. Don't go soft on us.
IT IS SAD THAT U ARE SO CAUGHT UP IN "YOUR OWN WORLD" THAT U WOULD RATHER SEE MCCAIN IN THE WHITEHOUSE. DO U NOT UNDERSTAND THAT HILLARY WILL BE A WORKING AS DILIGENTLY IN THE WHITEHOUSE ALTHOUGH SHE WON'T BE THE PRESIDENT, IF OBAMA IS THE WINNER? LET GO OF THE GRUDGE. IT IS NOT HEALTHY!
You may have some Clinton supporters going over to Obama, but
more will Not. I do not trust this man, he flip flops more than a fish
out of water and this is only the beginning. He is so cocky he makes my skin crawl. He is buying his way into the presidency.SHAME ,SHAME on the american people for even thinking
of putting this man and his anti american wife in the white house.
Hopefull, she will bring in more of Clinton's supporters. While they feelings may be bruised, by voting for McBush, they spit at everything that Sen. Clinton stands for!
