Evening Wrap Up.....

the 'fist bump' or 'dap' controversy just won't go away.....


Hillary Clinton faces the largest campaign debt, ever, rumors are past 30M once the filings are with the FEC. Obama will have to help her out with fundraisers, etc., but she will be on the low list of the totem pole. With a 50 state strategy and the DNC for much needed funds, this will take precedent.

Besides the $11.4 million of her own money that Mrs. Clinton lent her campaign, she had about $9.5 million in unpaid bills to vendors at the end of April, according to her most recent filing with the Federal Election Commission.

It is unclear how much debt she will ultimately report, because the campaign is still adding up the figures for May, which it must file to the commission by June 20. But Mo Elleithee, a campaign spokesman, said, “We don’t expect the debt number to look significantly different than it did on our last report.”


George W. Bush, our president's approval rating is at an all time low. nuff said.


Obama Campaign has hired a team to track down internet smears

One word, no two, ABOUT TIME.

This is one thing that I never understood about the Obama Campaign, that is how can you let these email/internet smears just stay out there. There is STILL, even after the Reverend Wright fiasco, close to 20% of the population that believe he is a muslim. This need to be addressed NOW. And yes, I am glad that it is about time.

Barack Obama is recruiting senior staff to a new unit which will combat virulent rumour campaigns on the internet that threaten to cost him votes in the presidential election against John McCain.

The unit is part of a huge expansion of Obama's campaign team as he shifts from the Democratic nomination race to the campaign for November's election.

As well as the rumour-mongering problem, units are being set up to deal with other perceived vulnerable points, including off-the-cuff remarks by his wife Michelle. McCain's wife, Cindy, questioned Michelle's patriotism in February after she said: "For the first time in my adult life, I am proud of my country."


Unity for Change

This is starting nationwide on June 28, 2008. These are house parties, the ones organized before the primary season to introduce many to Barack and Michelle Obama. These parties were also used as fundraisers.

Pakistani leader says Obama must change course

Embattled, U.S.-backed Pakistani Pres. Pervez Musharraf Saturday warned Barack Obama that if he wins the White House, he'd have to change his policies towards Pakistan.

Musharraf, whom President Bush considers one of America's closest allies in the war on terrorism, denied that Bush gives orders to Pakistan, a charge that's constantly levelled against both men.

The Pakistani president also used his first press conference in six months to reject speculation that he's about to be forced out of office, rumors that have grown so strong that Bush called him at the end of last month to pledge continued American support. Musharraf came out fighting, saying that he isn't willing to accept the newly elected Pakistani government's plan to reduce him to a ceremonial role.
