Obama and Hillary Will Campaign Together

It looks like campaigning for the general election is now truly in full swing. Yesterday, Barack Obama announced that he was opting out of public financing, much to the chagrin of public financing advocates. Today, the Obama campaign announced in an email that he and Hillary Clinton will campaign together and their first joint appearance will be June 27.

Obama’s campaign disclosed the joint appearance — but offered few details…

Yesterday in a conference call with top donors, Hillary “urged her top fundraisers in no uncertain terms to throw their weight behind Barack Obama.”

I am going to do everything I can to ensure victory for Senator Obama,” Hillary told her fundraisers on the call. “I am asking each of you to do the same. I really believe we’ve got to see a Democrat sworn into the White House this January.”

The call, which I was able to listen to in its entirety, left little doubt that Hillary was unequivocally signaling to her top financial supporters — who are being actively courted by Obama — that the time had come for them to do their part in getting him elected President.

Hillary added that “the stakes are too high” to do anything but “do all we can to elect Barack Obama President,” in order to “turn the economy around” and “protect a woman’s right too choose.”

I think there is no mistaking at this point that the party is coming together and the goal is certain — we must put Barack Obama in the White House. Clinton supporters who have been on the fence need to think long and hard about what is at stake. John McCain is NOT and option in November.

Does he intend to keep the NCLB ? We don’t know his details and specific’s concerning .To many general visions that need details for clarification and Clinton can help him.
