U-N-I-T-Y spells Unity (, New Hampshire)

Barry and Hill Dawg showing unity in Unity (ZOMG I just got that!)

Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton made their much talked about joint appearance in Unity, NH (get it? They're showing unity in a town CALLED Unity. That works on SO many levels!)

USA Today had a good live blog of the speech from Unity Elementary School. Among the highlights were Obama concurring with someone in the crowd that Clinton does indeed "rock," Clinton calling her campaign with Obama "a spirited dialogue" to the complete shock of the audience, Clinton telling any of her supporters that may vote for John McCain to "reconsider."

Despite all the hype this rally has recieved, I doubt it will have much of a long-term impact on this election. Clinton's supporters knew where they were going within a couple of weeks (to come back from what was likely a tough emotional letdown) after she dropped out of the race earlier this month. Those who decided to come back into the fold of the Democratic party did so, while those who really meant what they said about voting for McCain have joined Harriet Christian and Tracy from West Virginia in going for McCain.

While I'm sure this story will get a lot of play over the weekend, it will have little effect on the Democrats chances this November.

Now that we’re beyond Hillary, we can look forward to the first female VP, Sarah Palin, to become the first female President of the United States in 4 years!
