Today sees Clinton sharing the podium with Barack Obama for the first time since losing to him for the Democrat candidacy and the timing seems planned to perfection with McCain currently on the ropes.
This said John McCain is a fighter and he should not be underestimated as the clock ticks down to election day.
A confident Barack Obama enlisted his former rival Hillary Clinton to kick off a frenetic final fortnight's campaigning in Florida today, as the Democratic candidate sought to hammer home his advantage against John McCain.
A rally today featuring Ms Clinton - the New York senator who lost to Mr Obama by a whisker in the Democratic primaries - will be seen as a vital display of unity between the pair at the start of a three-day offensive against John McCain concentrating solely on the Sunshine State.
Ms Clinton's appearance, her first with Mr Obama since June, will be used to demonstrate that the former rivals have buried any animosity between them which developed during their tempestuous campaign for the Democratic candidacy. It is also an attempt to capitalise on the former First Lady's popularity in a state where she trounced Mr Obama in the Democratic primary, even though the contest was declared void after Florida violated party scheduling rules.
