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!"

    I'll be glad when this "unity" thing is over and done with. The more Hillary stay on stage, the more her backers get pi–ed. It's Obama's show. This is Obama's time, the Clinton's had theirs. I'll be glad when Obama and his chosen VP get on the trail, then we can really get this thing on the way.

    What a great day! Great place to unite! Great crowd in Unity!

    And...two great people! I love the color themes!

    Great speeches by Obama and Hillary!

    Let's go Dems!

    I loved Hillary's comment about McSame and Bush – two sides of the same coin... that doesn't amount to any change!!! (:

    Thank you Hillary and Bill Clinton for joining our team!

    Let's go Bam! Need to step it up on McSame!

    Yes I agree that some of these posters must be fake. Of course Hillary said she deserved the presidency, lol. If she didn't feel she deserved it she wouldn't have ran. She wouldn't have let people announce her as the next president of the US. Every presidential candidate should believe with all their heart and soul that they deserve to be president. Next, why would you be so upset and turned off against Barack Obama behind some things his "young supporters" said? As if there weren't the same amount or more of Clinton supporters spewing all kinds of nonsense about Obama. Why weren't you turned off from Clinton because of them?

    I have to admit I'm warming up to her now. If she was more like this during the campaign she might have won.

    Maybe she is the best choice for VP.

    You know the more I see them together, it might be ok. The dynamic duo would surely kick some GOP Butt.

    JB – you are right – those of us that hate Hillary do so not because she is a woman, but because she is the person she is!

    The Democrats may have some problems now but we will unite in time to kick some McCain's butt.

    Congratulations on your first united campaign, Barack and Hillary supporters!

    Now I know that this might just be wishful thinking, but here goes anyway. From today going forward, please folks, NO MORE NEGATIVE COMMENTS aimed at BARACK OR HILLARY. (See I told you it might just be wishful thinking but I am still wishing).

    From this day onward, the only NEGATIVE COMMENTS ON THESE BLOGS, should be directed towards, ?????????? Yes you got it JOHN McCAIN.........Now be truthful, for both Hillary's, and Barack's supporters.......wouldn't this be a wonderful way to GO FORWARD UNITED? From here to November it's UNITED DEMOCRATS against McCAIN!

    I'm still not sold on her as VP. Maybe as an African American their shots still sting a little bit. Maybe by August I will have changed my mind!

    I'm just wondering how much influence Hillary's "unity" will have on Obama when it come time to choosing a running mate? There is something in this for Hillary........and that you can take to the bank.
