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.
