“Unity” in Denver may be more difficult to achieve that some realize:
Brenda Krause is tired of fearmongering among the Democrats.
The 55-year-old delegate to the Democratic National Convention doesn’t think the party — or its unity — is in any way compromised by her voting for Hillary Rodham Clinton at the roll call. . . .
Though the majority of the Democratic Party backs Sen. Barack Obama, an undercurrent of staunch and loyal Clinton supporters say they’ll fight all the way to the national convention, which begins Aug. 25 in Denver, to put her name on the ballot.
While Team Obama was busy jetting The One around Europe, they were failing to quench the PUMA rebellion on the home front:
With the clock running out on preparations for the Democratic convention, advisers to Sen. Barack Obama are scrambling to reach a compromise with Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton to appease her supporters and find roles for her and her husband.
That they’re still “scrambling” two months after Obama clinched the nomination — and barely two weeks before the convention — suggests an alarming inattention to the problem. And the fact that Obama still hasn’t announced his running mate should also worry Democrats.
