Hillary is supporting Barack, and Barack is chumming up to Hillary in—yes—Unity, New Hampshire today to show the world that the dems are united. Oh, what symbolism! Big news, but what the 24 hour news networks cannot stop jabbering about is the fact that the duo's outfits matched. Per the Associated Press: "Clinton in a powder blue pantsuit and Obama wearing a tie of a nearly identical shade." Was it coincidence? Was it planned? Barack also gave her a kiss on the cheek.
