This is not even a matter of taking sports too seriously, but giving them the dignity they should have instead, realising the role of fairness as an athlete scores another point or crosses the finishing line. Fair-play, you know…

Le Reve Brise d’Hillary Clinton by Europe & Us
En prenant pour colistier le sénateur du Delaware Joe Biden, Barack Obama a définitivement anéanti le rêve de ceux qui nourrissaient encore l’espoir d’une seconde place pour Hillary Clinton.

Clinton and Obama rally in Unity

Hillary Clinton is to join Barack Obama at a rally – their first public event since she pulled out of the race to be the Democratic presidential candidate.

The rally in Unity, New Hampshire, is seen as an opportunity for party supporters to come together after the divisive primary battle. The event follows a joint dinner in Washington where Mr. Obama offered help to clear Mrs. Clinton’s campaign debts. Mrs. Clinton is expected to back Mr. Obama’s White House bid at the rally.

At least!!!

Obama helps Clinton with debt

Sen. Barack Obama has asked top contributors to help his former rival for the Democratic presidential nomination, Sen. Hillary Clinton, retire her debt, an Obama campaign source said Tuesday.

Obama did not direct members of his National Finance Committee to contribute to Clinton’s campaign, the source said, but asked them to do so if they were so inclined. Clinton suspended her campaign and endorsed Obama for the Democratic presidential nomination this month.

She has amassed a campaign debt of about $22 million, but about $12 million of that is money the New York senator loaned to the campaign herself. Individual donors can contribute $2,300 to individual candidates. Clinton and Obama have scheduled a joint campaign appearance Friday in Unity, New Hampshire.

Obama said Tuesday that he had spoken with Clinton by phone earlier in the day as well as on Sunday. “We had a good conversation,” he said. “We’re looking forward to seeing each other tomorrow and campaigning on Friday.”

Nothing worse than an opponent who feels sorry for you!!!

Clinton will quit?

Hillary Clinton will withdraw from the race to become the Democratic candidate for the US presidency, and back her rival Barack Obama, her campaign says.

On Tuesday, Mr. Obama gained enough delegates to win the nomination, after the final votes of the primary season. Mrs. Clinton has still not admitted in public that she lost the contest, but on Saturday she will do so “and express her support for Senator Obama”.

Mr. Obama has already announced a team to help select his running mate. Reports that Mrs. Clinton was ready to concede came after she made a conference call to senior Democrats in Congress.

At a Democratic Party event in Washington, Mrs. Clinton will also “express her support… for party unity”, her communications director Howard Wolfson said. Earlier, it had been announced that the event would be held on Friday, but Mr. Wolfson said it had been delayed a day “to accommodate more of Senator Clinton’s supporters who want to attend”.

Hillary had the ability to have a multi-collective voters and supporters often from all sides of the American political life; the big question now is if these people are going to support Obama.

Obama declares victory

Barack Obama has declared himself “the Democratic nominee for president of the United States”.

He was speaking to a cheering crowd on the last day of the primary season, as projections showed he had earned enough delegates to clinch the nomination. Of the states that voted, Montana was won by Mr Obama and South Dakota by his rival Hillary Clinton, US media say. In her own speech to supporters, Mrs Clinton refused to concede and said she would make a final decision later.

Barack might declares victory but the question remains, what Hillary will declare?

US Democrats hold key poll talks

The US Democratic Party is meeting to decide the fate of two states left out of the dramatic race to find its candidate for president.

Both Florida and Michigan were stripped of representation for holding their candidate contests in January, in violation of party rules. Hillary Clinton hopes the party will reverse its decision in the two states, where she has enjoyed strong support.

She is lagging behind Barack Obama in the closing days of the race. The 30 members of the Democratic Party’s rules and bylaws committee are meeting in the ballroom of a Washington hotel.

Outside, about 200 protesters holding placards gathered, chanting: “Count our vote.” The Democratic Party chairman, Howard Dean, opened the meeting, saying the compromises under discussion would probably not satisfy everyone.

Hillary take a decision before it is too late!

US Democrats to hold talks

The US Democratic Party is meeting to decide the fate of two states left out of the dramatic race to find its candidate for president.

Both Florida and Michigan were stripped of representation for holding their candidate contests in January, in violation of party rules. Hillary Clinton hopes the party will reverse its decision in the two states, where she has enjoyed strong support.

She is lagging behind Barack Obama in the closing days of the race. Whatever the outcome of the committee’s meeting, Barack Obama is still almost certain to cross the finishing-line in first place.

Let’s hope that they meet and come to a compromise, one of them has to be the vice president!
