Obama at Unity Event:
“I know that because of the campaign waged by Hillary Clinton, my daughters and all of yours will forever know that there is no barrier to who and what they can be in the United States of America. They can take for granted that women can do anything that the boys can do…and do it better…and do it in heels.”
Amen to that!

“Two well-known New Hampshire Democrats have endorsed the Republican Party’s presumptive presidential nominee. Jim McConaha and Valery Mitchell, who have pledged their support to U.S. Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), will serve as co-chairs of “New Hampshire Democrats for McCain. The announcement comes the day before U.S. Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.), McCain’s presumptive general election opponent, campaigns in New Hampshire with U.S. Sen. Hillary Clinton (D-N.Y.).
McConaha was a political appointment of President Clinton and served as New Hampshire director for the federal Farm Service Agency and was recently a member of U.S. Sen. Chris Dodd’s presidential Steering Committee. Mitchell was a member of John Kerry’s Steering Committee in 2004 and also supported Dodd in 2008. She is a former organizer of the Democratic Network. “It was not easy to step away from my party in the McCain-Obama race, but I want a president whose judgment we know and trust, and a leader who will do what is in the best interest of our country without regard to politics or ideology,” Mitchell said in a campaign press release.
McConaha also cited McCain’s judgement.” “This is the most important job in the world. We need a leader of proven competence, tested judgment and substantial experience in the modern world and, obviously, that is John McCain.” It was also announced that Marcia Moran, of Concord, and David Lee, of Londonderry, will serve as co-chairs of “New Hampshire Independents for McCain.”

One of the few ideas hatched while drunk that still sounds just as brilliant the next day.
“From the Department of Damned-With-Faint-Praise, a group going by the regal-sounding name of the Presidential Memorial Commission of San Francisco is planning to ask voters here to change the name of a prize-winning water treatment plant on the shoreline to the George W. Bush Sewage Plant.”
The plan, naturally hatched in a bar, would place a vote on the November ballot to provide ‘an appropriate honor for a truly unique president….’
“The renaming would take effect on Jan. 20, when the new president is sworn in. And regardless of the measure’s outcome, supporters plan to commemorate the inaugural with a synchronized flush of hundreds of thousands of San Francisco toilets, an action that would send a flood of water toward the plant, now called the Oceanside Water Pollution Control Plant.”

Hillary Clinton returned to the Senate this afternoon amidst applause and cheers. She briefly talked with reporters shooting down VP speculation, saying “I am not seeking any other position…It is not something that I think about. This is totally Senator Obama’s decision and that’s the way it should be.”
On John McCain’s aggressive courtship of her primary voters, Clinton responded, “Anyone who voted for me has very little in common with the Republican party…If you care about the issues I care about and the future that I outline in my campaign, then you really have to stay with us in the Democratic party and vote Senator Obama to be our next president.”
The Democratic leadership was at her side as she made her remarks, so what’s the relationship like for Clinton and her Senate peers now, especially Reid and Pelosi who either came out in support of Obama or pushed for an early end to the primary race? Pelosi did say she believes Clinton “will run again.” Question is, will she support her?

Hillary Clinton is positioning herself for a VP offer, not because she wants it, but so she can reject it.
