Clinton-Obama pow-wow set for next week for money, of course
According to Mike Dorning over at the Swamp, the former rivals will make a joint appearance in Washington next week before major Clinton fundraisers to bolster support for the presumptive Democratic nominee among the New York senator's backers, many of them still stinging from her narrow loss.
The two candidates also are looking at dates for another joint public appearance soon, a source familiar with the planning said.
Some major Clinton backers have expressed frustration with the Obama campaign. Several backers of the New York senator took offense in particular at the Obama campaign's decision to name as the chief of staff to the as-yet-unnamed vice presidential nominee Patti Solis Doyle, a former Clinton campaign manager who was ousted in February.
The Clinton folks interpret the move as a slap at Clinton and a signal that she would not be chosen as the Illinois senator's running mate.
Mike's got the full story here.
