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!"

    You know how to anger Obama supporters the most? Have Hillary campaign for him. All their predictions of "she'll have the party go down with her" and "she'll make a scene at the Convention" will be disproven.

    But then again some of them will interpret even these gestures as somehow evil and selfish on her part...

    I am a die-hard supporter of Hillary Clinton and I am still healing my wounds from the primaries... but I have to admit that this a BEAUTIFUL picture...

    This shows that Democrats are united and ready to kick Bush out of the White House for good !

    This is the first time I am going to say this: OBAMA'08 !!

    She should lose Bill, and marry Barack.

    That way she could be First Lady again! 🙂

    McCain is not the man to take us through these uncertain and unhappy times. No matter how much the media portrays McCain as a maverick and a centrist, he is beholden to the same interests as Bush. If Obama is elected, he could create a new democratic coalition which would include significant numbers from all the major demographic groups, i.e., men, women, affluent, poor, black, white. It would rival that of the New Deal coalition built by Franklin Roosevelt.

    How can you vote for these 2. They just spent over a year telling us why we shouldnt vote for the other.

    Bunch of liars... what happened to change?

    This is just more of the same garbage!

  12. No more fighting. Let's unite!

    POST MY COMMENT, CNN. WHy do you post the hateful comments and leave out the nice ones?

    New posters:

    Beware the FAKE posters in here. The ones with hateful comments designed to incite fighting and division amongst Democrats.

    Whether Hillary becomes VP or not, Democrats are uniting, The Republicans posters in here are afraid, and they are resorting to making threats and insulting both candidates in an effort to undermine this unification.

    Don't be fooled!

    Democrats will vote for Obama this fall, as will many Independents and some Republicans.

    Obama and Clinton appear in Unity, New Hampshire:

    Sorry, but I just have to get my two cents worth in here on the Obama/Clinton reunion. Hillary stop this madness before you totally ruin your credibility among people who have loved the Clinton's. I'm afraid I just couldn't help myself and (oh my god) I did watch this train wreck happen all over again. Hopefully, it won't go viral on utube! I'm sure that CNN will never quit talking about these two love birds now. AGHHHH

    From an ex-democrat who is now firing up for John McCain!

    That was amazing! Two very charismatic people on the same page and delivering a knock-out punch. That's what I'm talkin' about.

    Your comment is awaiting moderation.
    I am not a Hillary Clinton supporter, but I was very proud of her today.

    Go Dems you got to love-em!

    That was well done on both sides of the campaign. I did laugh a bit at Hillary's joke "spirited discourse". Overall a very good moment between the two, and if he has to pick her as part of the ticket, I wouldn't be as averse to it as I would have been.

  18. Hillary now for Barack

    I am no longer a member of PUMA and will switch my vote to Barack. I will honor the wishes of the woman that I have supported for so long!

    Obama 08

    Oh, how sweet it is to be united as one and who said it couldn't be done. Hillary Clinton is still a great First Lady and understands the importance of Obama being the next president. So to the Republican party that has laid claim on Hillary supporters, sorry, because you won't get them. Democrats, Independents, Obamacons, Conservatives, Libertarians, ALL, we welcome all for the next President, Barack Obama.

    She just wants her money back and then she will run as Independent against this clown and show him what a winner really is.
    Bill and Hill are going to put Nobama away and send him back to Chicago where he belongs.
    He is the one who has divided the democratic party with his racial baiting, arrogance, and all the lies that he has told and will continue to tell.
    Hillary should really stay as far away from him as she can from now on. One appearance is enough.
    Kick him to the curb Hillary, you can do it all on your own.

    We at the Obama camp really appreciate Senator Clinton's work in rounding up all her crazy liable supporters to vote for him. But she won't get the VP because she is old politics. All is well...

    MCR – "The DNC has too many problems to give Obama a win. Go, McCain."

    Thats right, the Republicans are doing a great job....NOT.
