I understand the campaign’s desire to have a little symbolism, but for me this is a tad over the too-obvious line. But I digress.
Many are wondering whether a little speech will help persuade Hillary Clinton’s die-hard fans to join with Barack Obama to sing together in a spirit of harmony and peace for the good of the party in November?
Some looking in from the outside have reason to doubt that will happen. And there is evidence to suggest that, with groups posting information about organized protests before the event, the atmosphere in Unity may not be as welcoming and warm, shall we say ‘uniting,’ as the Obama people would like.
The question I wonder is this — after Hillary Clinton asks her legions, again, to give their full support to Obama, will they do it? Or will they, as some polls suggest, vote for John McCain instead?
I don’t even have to hear the speech to give anyone pondering this “choice” the two words that should seal the deal for voting for Obama — Supreme. Court.
Just think what the Supreme Court of the United States would look like if a GOP president gets to appoint the next justices — we don’t need any junior Scalias or Alitos moving in. I know John Paul Stevens is hanging on, hoping that a Democrat will move into the White House in January. He’s great and I hope he stays on the court for long time, but the man is 88 years old.
So, check back tomorrow for the MOMocrats take on the Unity, New Hampshire event. You know we’ll have some interesting things to chat about!
