A Place Called Unity
Posted on Jun 27, 2008
Hillary Clinton finally campaigned with Barack Obama, at a rally in the town of Unity, N.H. Never one to miss out on using overtly direct town names—remember Bill Clinton was born in a place called Hope—the Democratic Party may be trying a bit too hard to heal its wounds after a divisive battle in the primaries.
The rally in Unity, New Hampshire, was an opportunity for supporters of the party to come together after the divisive primary battle.
The event follows a joint dinner in Washington where Mr Obama offered help to clear Mrs Clinton’s campaign debts.
Mrs Clinton urged supporters at the Democrat rally to vote for Mr Obama.
“If you think we need a new course, a new agenda, then vote for Barack Obama and you will get the change you need,” she told the cheering crowd.
