California Senator Dianne Feinstein, who hosted the recent Obama-Clinton meeting, told a TV audience she believes the two former rivals should combine forces in order to present a truly united Democratic ticket. “Hillary Clinton is well known, certainly she had the popular vote in this election. That is something and that is something tremendous.” She insisted there was no intention on her part to dictate to Obama, but “ll I can say is I agree with (Pennsylvania Governor ) Ed Rendell, that if you really want a winning ticket, this is it.”
There is little doubt a portion of Hlllary Clinton voters are alienated and will either sit out the election or vote for McCain in spite despite their spite hurting their own interests. People allow emotions to take over their common sense when it comes to voting. Regardless of what Obama desires, he might well take the Feinstein advice.
