In a place called Unity

[cnn-photo-caption image= http://i.cdn.turner.com/cnn/2008/images/06/27/art.unity.ap.jpg caption="Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama."]
(CNN) - Sens. Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton appeared together Friday at a rally in Unity, New Hampshire, a town where they tied in the January primary.

Watch: Obama says Clinton 'rocks'

"We may have started on separate paths ... today our hearts are set on the same destination for America ... to elect Barack Obama as the next president of the United States," Clinton said.

Watch: Clinton praises Obama

"We are one party, we are one America," she added.

The two Democrats walked onstage together to U2's song, "Beautiful Day" as an enthusiastic crowd chanted "Yes we can!"

    God, I am so sick of seeing that Blue Suit. Anyway...I don't believe Hillary for one moment. Too much damage done during the primary season.

    I will vote for Sen Obama ONLY IF HILLARY IS NOT ON THE TICKET. If she is his VP choice then he becomes a liar in my eyes. Politics or no politics. I take a man & woman at their WORD.

    Good bye Hillary...you are a FAKE SNAKE

    Seeing Senators Obama and Clinton onstage together made me, as a young woman, burst with pride. So many boundaries have fallen in this race. Let us put aside our differences (they are generally so small), and look to the future. Both Obama and Clinton are forward thinking politicians who are amazingly in touch with what America needs today. Let's not allow neo-con smears and rhetoric color what we really know Obama can do. We know that Obama is a change on many, many levels. Let him be the change we so desperately need. Staying the course has gotten us to this point – a crippled dollar, a banking industry with no regulations, foreign dependance on oil killing us at the pump. Let us remember that this is what 8 years of "staying the course" can do.
    We need change.

    Go Democrats! Hopefully, those pretending to be Hilliary supporters but are really Republicans in disguise will let us enjoy this unity for a while.

    If you missed the rally, you REALLY missed it! There is chemistry and power with these two together! The change we all need and want wont happen overnight but I do believe it will happen on an intelligent, well planned path! They are both a blessing and we would be fools not to accept the blessing for ourselves!

  15. Big Thinker

    If I were Barack Obama... I would run what is called a BLITZ or a FULL COURT PRESS on McCain. I would take Hillary, Bill, and Oprah on a state by state tour where they can take turns either holding the big rally or having the more intimate setting with voters. In Florida for example, you could have Obama in Jacksonville, Bill in some senior citizens home, Hillary can tear it up in Miami, while Oprah gets some excitement in Orlando. THEY CAN PULL OF A STRATEGY LIKE THIS IN EVERY STATE. THERE IS NO WAY THAT MCSAME CAN MATCH THIS KIND OF ENTHUSIASM. LETS NOT JUST TRY TO BEAT MCCAIN.... LETS STEAMROLL THE OLD MAN!!!!

    OBAMA/BILLARY 08!!!!

    Can Hillary Clinton win reelection in New York for the US Senate (2012) w/out the African-American vote? I think that issue factors into her current support for Barack Obama.

  21. Pumas aren't Democrats, So Stop Using OUR Good Name

    I appauled Senator Clinton's help. However, NO CLINTON ON THAT TICKET! I mean its nice now, and its good to have her support, but its a bad idea. Not just because of the things she said during the primary but the Republicans will come out in DROVES against the Clintons. Not to mention, some of the scandals the Clintons may be involved in. Obama needs someone with foreign policy experience and Clinton isn't on the top of that list. Sorry, but I do want to win and I don't see it with Clinton on the ticket. But I do (even though I don't particularly care for her behavior) wish her all the luck in the world with whatever she wants to pursue.

    I'm trying to like her but i just can't. She wore me out during the primaries with her lies, divisiveness, misspeaks, debt ridden campaign.
