Burying the Hatchet
Posted on Jun 5, 2008
Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton met face to face on Thursday to discuss how they can best unite their campaigns and the Democratic Party. Clinton has wavered on whether she would like to be vice president, and Obama has appealed for patience on the matter. Still, if the subject didn’t come up, it would certainly have been the elephant in the room. Unless John McCain was hiding behind the couch.
Democratic hopeful Barack Obama has had an unannounced meeting with his defeated rival Hillary Clinton.
The talks came two days after Mr Obama effectively clinched the nomination for November’s US presidential election.
A spokesman for Mr Obama said the two former opponents met to talk about bringing their campaigns together and uniting the party.
