Obama vs. the other guy, 2008

Hillary to Hit the Campaign Trail

Barack and Hillary

Apropos of my post below on President Clinton’s hard feelings, Hillary is having no such issues, and is scheduled to campaign in Nevada.

Hillary Clinton will campaign for Barack Obama this Friday in Nevada and hit the Miami area on Aug. 21 for a fundraiser and rally as part of a pre-convention unity swing, according to people close to Clinton.

“She’s flying solo,” said a source familiar with the events, although there’s “a chance” Obama could join her in Nevada.

The former first lady is also kick-starting her long-dormant leadership PAC to dollop cash on congressional candidates who have called her for support, Clinton told a group of about 50 backers who gathered today in the offices of the Philadelphia law firm Wolf, Block, Schorr and Solis-Cohen law firm.

Interesting that there is a possibility that Obama could join her on the campaign trail for that stop. It probably wouldn’t hurt to sprinkle in a few additional joint appearances here and there, even if their (national) value diminishes the more frequently they happen. At least there is one Clinton being a team player.

  1. Hillary’s being a lot way more mature than Bill is, and I give her kudos for that.

  2. I never thought I’d say this, but couldn’t come a moment too soon – we are starting to need her.
