"] WASHINGTON (CNN) - Presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Sen. Barack Obama met with Sen. Hillary Clinton, his rival through Tuesday's primaries in South Dakota and Montana, at her home in Washington, D.C., on Thursday, according to both campaigns.
"Sen. Clinton and Sen. Obama met tonight and had a productive discussion about the important work that needs to be done to succeed in November," the Clinton and Obama campaigns said in a joint statement.
One of the primary reasons Barack Obama is the Democratic Nominee is because the American people are wide awake…We have awaken from our deep sleep thanks to President Bush, McCain, and the rest of the GOP…and listen to us carefully…While we were sleeping the GOP gave our money to the wealthiest people in the country and we want it back! While we were sleeping, the Bush/McCain administration damaged our reputation around the world and we want it restored! While we were sleeping, the Bush/McCain administration drastically reduced the value of the American dollar to make it worth one half the value of the EURO and we want it strengthen! While we were sleeping, the Bush/McCain administration put us in a never-ending, unnecessary war and we want out!! So CNN and the rest of the media outlets, you can try to help the GOP by encouraging division between the Clinton & Obama supporters, please go ahead and try, we will show you in November that we are WIDE AWAKE and we want CHANGE
The nominee still showing her a full respect,i tell you OBAMA is an humble creature and that is why God has appoint him
I truly don't understand why Clinton supporters feel their votes were "ignored." It was a hotly contested race, certainly, but *someone* had to win, and Obama won, not just the overall delegate count but even among just the pledged delegates chosen by the states.
Clinton herself has said that it would be a grave mistake to support McCain. I hope those who had faith in her ability to serve as president will also have enough faith in her judgment to take the time to follow her line of reasoning and make an informed choice in November. To vote for McCain because you truly prefer his platform to the Democratic platform is a rational position; to simply vote for McCain out of spite because your preferred candidate didn't win the primary, however, would make no sense at all.
Well said, Brian. I especially like your argument against Sen. Obama's 'lack of experience'. As though more years in Washington will help. That's all Sen. Obama has to say when McCain argues that he has more experience.
