Obama Donates $4,600 to Clinton Campaign; Mrs. Obama Pledges Gay Equality
UPDATE: Meanwhile, Michelle Obama promises a gay Democrats group that her husband will fight for gay equality. Given that Mrs. Obama is busy making policy and public statements, Mr. Obama is going to be hard-pressed, in any logical way, to continue to claim that the media and the public must keep "hands off" her comments and not analyze or criticize her. Hey, Mr. and Mrs. Obama, if you jump into the policy stew pot you're likely to get stirred.
This is the most shrewd publicity/public relations move I've ever seen for a mere $4,600.
Barack Obama announced Thursday that he will help pay off Hillary Rodham Clinton’s more than $20 million debt, personally writing a check in a gesture meant to win over her top financial backers.
Obama met with more than 200 of Clinton’s biggest fundraisers at Washington’s Mayflower Hotel, the first step in a two-day push to bring her supporters onboard his general election campaign. Behind the scenes, the two sides were negotiating her future involvement with the campaign.
