Unity Watch...Obama Forgets To Shill For Donations To Hillary

I'm going to guess this isn't exactly helping heal the rift in the Democratic Party.

It was supposed to be a moment for Obama to soothe some of the tension that still exists between the two camps. It was supposed to be a chance for Obama to solicit donations to help retire Clinton’s campaign debt, that could total $30 million. It was supposed to be all that. The only problem is, he almost forgot.

He delivered a 32-minute speech to the crowd of 1,000 people at the Grand Hyatt Hotel on Park Avenue in New York City, and began walking off the stage to Stevie Wonder’s “Signed, Sealed, and Delivered.”

... Obama seemed to realize he was about to fuel the feud-fire by his forgetfulness, and quickly rushed back on stage, saying, “Hold on a second guys, I was getting all carried away!” And then, the pitch: “Sen. Clinton still has some debt. And I could have had some debt if I hadn’t won, so I know the drill. There are many supporters of mine here who have not yet given something to help her retire that debt.”

In fact, estimates are that the Obama camp has only raised about $100,000 to help Clinton so far.

Hot Air has the video and it's pretty funny.

Obama and Clinton did appear together this morning and since she was standing next to him, Obama apparently managed to remember she existed.

Let's be honest though, when it comes to Sen. Barack Obama...there's only on important man up on that stage and it isn't Hillary Clinton.
