    What a joke. Obama is just another typical poliitician. He wants unity with Hillary only to benefit himself. So much for "Change"

    Minnesota and Wisconsin, toss -up states that are now leaning Obama! CNN stop exaggerating and propping up Mr. Chinny Chin Chin! These two traditionally liberal states are no toss up and that Obama is winning them (he won them both in the primaries) is no surprise. When Virginia turns BLUE give me a call

    I like this picture seeing Obama and Clinton united together, if we can get Bill in that picture it will be even better.

    Won't change anything. Cry unity all you want. There is none.

    I hope that Clinton's and Obama's efforts are seen in a positive light so that the Democrats can take control of this wayward country.

    Now that is a great picture! Unity of any kind is great and especially when it involves these two great people. Regardless of you rfeelings for one or the other, one must admit that both wants to bring about change to this country in a big way and they care about what happens to each and every one of us. I'm glad to see them helping one another.

    Look how they positioned the pictured... with Clinton in front of Obama. Interesting.

    If us supporters of Obama help Hillary pay off her campaign debts, she will owe us "Big Time"! So let's do it. The appearance of Obama and Hillary today at a rally in Unity, New Hampshire will dominate the political news cycle for the next 4 to 6 days easy, thereby reducing McCain to "background noise".

    Mitt Romney would have been a much smarter choice for the GOP. McCain's gonna get creamed.

    IMO Hillary is just doing this to stay in the good graces of the
    "Democratic" Party.

    Later they will visit a town called "Reality" in which John McCain
    becomes President of the United States.

    The Dems will never become unified with Obama. Remember many of us will not vote for Obama either way.

    You know, I heard the upcoming election best summed up like this on "Meet the Press" last Sunday –
    It's one that Obama could loose, but McCain can't possibly "really" win.
    It's good to see Hillary supporting Obama, as party unity is the only way we'll be able to spare ourselves from four more years of stupidity and a total lack of concern for what the people in this country need.

    I myself work for a women's crisis center, and our funding has been hurt financially because of the way things have been handled by the current administration.
    We're excited for Obama, Hillary and change!

    This [i]is[/i] a beautiful picture of the two. I can't wait to see 'em together later today.

    Obama and Clinton don't/won't get along, ever.

    Clinton supporters: McCain is our man.

    McCain '08

    Mike, please do yourself a favor and either vote McCain or get over it.

    The presidency is not a seniority contest, if she would have WON the amount of delegates she would be the nominee. She didn't so at best she a VP hopeful and a supporter for OUR NOMINEE OBAMA.

    Obama '08!

    I have to admit, after going through a period of anti-Hillaryness, that they really sort of look like the dream ticket when they're together.

    Great to see Clinton put any bruised feelings behind her and COMMIT to making sure Barack WINS in November. The American people wouldn't have it any other way.

    Moreover, she will be asked to talk a significant role in HEALTH CARE ... most likely as Secretary of Health & Human Services or the new Poverty Czar role. This is her best avenue to serve the country for the next 4 years.

    She can then begin to plan her 2016 run for the white house.

    Definitely a nice picture and God knows it's way beyond time to unite. I don't know about anyone else, but it scares me of the option of having another 4-years of an extended Bush Presidency with McCain. Democrats Unite and Rally support around Obama.
