The scoop from Washington

Obama to headline Democratic National Committee fund-raiser in NYC Wednesday

| 11 Comments

UPDATE -WASHINGTON---Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) headlines a fund-raiser in Manhattan Wednesday night to benefit the Democratic National Committee and the Democratic 2008 nominee--who on Wednesday should just about be Obama. The smallish event--about 100 people--will be hosted by Jane Hartley and Ralph Schlosstein at a home near Park Ave. and 75th. Even though nothing is official yet, the Obama folks are running this joint event. On Saturday, Vice President Gore and DNC chair Howard Dean raised DNC money at a private dinner in New York.


OLD WASHINGTON--Andrea Mitchell, interviewing Obama senior foreign policy adviser Greg Craig on her MSNBC show, just connected the dots that may give a clue to how likely presidential nominee Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) and his tenacious rival, Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-N.Y.) give a show of unity after Obama is expected to claim victory Tuesday night in Minnesota--at the site of the GOP convention.

The Democratic National Committee has an event in New York on Wednesday and Craig just confirmed that Obama will be there. And Clinton is also expected to be in New York on Wednesday.

Both Obama and Clinton will address AIPAC in Washington on Wednesday morning.

Dear American Voters,

Hon. Senator McCain and Obama, besides each having many attributes and characteristics. The critical differences in my professional, political, and personal opinion are as under:

1. Presidential "Temperament and Composer".
2. Little Washington "insider Versus outsider" connectedness.
3. Vision and mission for our nation future rather than past.
4. American policies first USA centric than other countries centric.

In my professional opinion one senator has it and the other does not. We need one for our Greatgrand Nation to address our all these challenges with a fresh, clean and new slate.

God Bless America. its diverse people, and our Greatgrand Nation.

Yours truly,

The Clintons had again moved the goalposts in getting the Michigan and Florida delegates seated, and Obama has again to prove he has won the nomination. This is like the sixth time the goalposts have been moved. More of this refusal to give him the victory after he has won FAIR and square by every metric--including the popular vote--and this senior citizen Asian American feminist will lose her cool and ignore the Obama campaign's pleas to be reconcilatory. Millions of us citizens will march to Washington DC to demand that the Clinton dynasty be forced out of town and that the winner be named. Enough with cowardice in the face of Clinton bullying and dynastic entitlement! The US is a democracy where the Constitution and rule of law reign, not Bill and Hill. The Party elders should pay attenttion to our escalating frustration. The next civil war will be in the Democratic Party.

THE DEMOCRATIC NOMINEE HAS SPOKEN, IT'S TIME FOR MCCAIN!
MCCAIN DOESN'T HAVE MUCH OF A BRAIN!

lin--didn't the Obama team get what they wanted on Saturday?

MILLIONS AND MILLIONS OF CLINTON DEMOCRATES WILL NOT VOTE FOR OBAMA! HE WILL SURLY LOOSE IN GENERAL ELECTION, THANK THE BIASED CHEATING DNC WHO STOLE VOTES TO SUPPORT OBAMA!!!!

THEY PURPOSLY TOOK DELEGATES FAILRY WON BY SENATOR CLINTION AND GAVE THEM TO OBAMA!!!!

VOTE THEM OUT NEXT ELECTION!!!!

DNC Committee awarded to Senator Obama not only the delegates won by Uncommitted, but also delegates won by Senator Clinton. This decision violates the bedrock principles of our democracy and our Party.

SUPPORTERS URGE SENATOR CLINTON TO RUN AS INDEPENDENT

In general is Obama has used Poor Judgment REPEATEDLY! Obama proved Rev Wright was correct!!! Politically correct, that is. The fact that it is "painful" and took 20 years suggests he agrees with these racists "under the covers". He resigned not necessarily because he wants to but because it is the only course open to him. Imagine if the roles were reversed and John McCain had attended a white separatist church for twenty years. Would his resignation after two decades cure the concern that he had lived some sort of weird double life, cavorting with racists but talking about equal opportunity in his public life? He’d have been forced out of the presidential race by now. So the question remains: was Obama the least observant church congegrant on the planet (racism and anti-Semitism at Trinity? No!) Or a hypocrite.
WE DO NOT ACCEPT OBAMAS POLITICAL DAMAGE APOLOGY!!!

SHOCKING what Obamas really think of white folks

unfortunately when Obama said some Americans are bitter he wasn't to far off the mark. Now people are using the DNC as a reason not to vote for Obama?! Like Ed Rendell her own backer said the difference between the decision Clinton supporter wanted and the one that was given would've been a net of 4 delegates... she was down 107 at the time. Whatever the case She still got Mi and FL votes that she agreed would not count before the primaries started, to count. Mi and FL were not Obama's fault if both candidates hand campaigned there and he had lost by 55 to 40 the headlines would be the same! Most realists realise that Clinton lost this fair and square. If you don't think so ask yourself what the case would be if the roles were reversed... Obama would've been forced to drop out this race a long time ago by party officials but cause Clinton has run a smear campaign her supporters are so much against Obama (for no apparent reason... people even say they won't vote cause of the DNC... really does that make sense, I don't see DNC on the ticket)that they were treated with velvet gloves.

SHE WOULDN'T RUN AS AN INDEPENDENT, IT WOULD BE POLITICAL SUICIDE!
LEARN TO BE A GRACIOUS LOSER, YOUNG PEOPLE ARE WATCHING, HILLARY
IS SETTING A BAD EXAMPLE, AND YOU ARE TOO!

I AM JUST UTTERLY DISAPPOINTED IN HILLARY AND HER SPEECH TONIGHT. I PRAY THAT YOU ALL ARE NOT ASKING OBAMA TO ASK HER TO BE VEEP. HE WOULD DO JUST AS WELL, IF NOT BETTER, WITH JOHN EDWARDS. SHE IS A SPOILED BRAT AND NEEDS TO LEARN HOW TO RESPECT OTHERS. I AM A PROUD BLACK FEMALE THAT EARN MORE THAN $50,000.00. WHAT CATAGORY DO I FIT IN? I ALSO AM A LEO (8/9/?) SO, I KNOW THAT OBAMA IS SERIOUS ABOUT EVERYTHING THAT HE SAIDS. PLEASE, UNCOMMITTED SUPERDELEGATES, ENDORSE HIM. JUST IN CASE HILLARY HAS SOMETHING UP HER SLEEVE. AND DO NOT WORRY ABOUT THE ELECTIONS, HE WILL BE JUST FINE. FOR EVERY HILLARY SUPPORTER, HE WILL ENCOURAGE 3 OTHERS (REPUBLICAN, INDEPENDENT, NEW VOTER, YOUNG VOTER) THE LIST GOES ON. AND I FEEL THAT YOU ALL KNOW THIS ALREADY.

I can not vote for a candidate who plays it safe and says nothing. I will write Hillary's name in. No Hillary No Vote....Beware the movement is growing!

We have been betrayed by the Democrats. If they can turn on each other they can turn on us! Be very afraid!

Obama moves right and hands Israel the West Bank and all of Jeruselem in a single NEOCON kissing speech. No surprise here.
Anything it takes to win is fair to Obama . Just throw 6 million Palestinians under the same bus.

For those who may be attending the convention in Denver:
