From the Left: The price of party unity is helping Hillary Clinton pay-off her $10 million dollar campaign debt.
Democratic presidential candidate, Barack Obama has asked his finance team to help his former opponent Hillary Clinton pay off a debt of at least $10 million dollars from her failed presidential campaign.
In a teleconference with his top fundraisers yesterday afternoon, Obama asked them to help the former first lady, a campaign spokesman confirmed.
Later at a star-studded fundraising gala in Los Angeles, the Illinois senator, who could become America’s first black president, appealed to those in the crowd who might have supported Clinton.
“I know I caused some heartburn and some frustration,” he said, adding that he and Clinton “were allies then and we’re allies now.”
My advice to Obama’s supporters is simple: DON’T PAY OFF HILLARY’S CAMPAIGN DEBT.
No one forced to Sen. Clinton to remain in the race after the May 6th, North Carolina Democratic primary, when Barack Obama carried the state by winning 56.30% of the vote. This date marked the end of Hillary Clinton’s campaign. Yet, thanks to Clinton’s Herculean ego, she remained in the race another month, racking up unnecessary debts and now she has the audacity to ask Obama’s supporters to help get her out of the hole?
Sorry, but asking Obama’s supporters to make Hillary Clinton finacially solvent again has nothing to do with party unity — it’s bribery.
LSB: Absolutely, 100% correct, couldn't agree more... still, the politically expedient thing to do is to relieve this debt so we can move her off the front page.
