Well, There You Go

That wasn't so hard, was it?
Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton's name will be placed into nomination at the Democratic National Convention, a symbolic move approved by the Obama campaign in an effort to soothe a lingering rift with Clinton supporters.

"I am convinced that honoring Senator Clinton's historic campaign in this way will help us celebrate this defining moment in our history and bring the party together in a strong united fashion," Senator Barack Obama said in a statement.

The decision was announced on Thursday afternoon in a joint statement from the senators.
…"With every voice heard and the Party strongly united, we will elect Senator Obama President of the United States and put our nation on the path to peace and prosperity once again," Mrs. Clinton said in a statement.
In her further quest to totally destroy the Democratic Party, Clinton—who is herself a superdelegate—will reportedly cast her vote for Obama and ask her supporters to follow suit, and, after the state-by-state roll is tallied, "Mrs. Clinton is expected to turn over her cache of delegates to Senator Barack Obama." What a horrible, horrible woman.

Btw, I love this bit from the linked article: "To see if it unfolds as the Obama campaign hopes – free of acrimony – tune in on Wednesday, Aug. 27." Just gotta get that last dig in. It's only the Obama campaign who wants things "free of acrimony." Clinton, well, she just loves the acrimony—which she has demonstrated repeatedly by trying to negotiate a solution that honors both the nominee and her supporters. Cheesus.
