Former DNC Chairman under Clinton: 'Unite behind Obama'

Some of these Clinton-era Obama supporters better hope that Hillary doesn't get to the White House. Vindictiveness has been a hallmark of the Clintons and I can see President Hillary taking her revenge out on some of these people.

The latest "traitor" is former head of the Democratic National Committee Joe Andrew who wants the party to unite behind Obama:


"This has got to come to an end," former Democratic National Committee Chairman Joe Andrew told reporters in his hometown of Indianapolis just days before Tuesday's crucial state primary. He said he planned to call all the other superdelegates he knows and encourage them to back Obama.

Bill Clinton appointed Andrew chairman of the DNC in 1999, and he led the party through the disputed 2000 presidential race before stepping down in 2001. Andrew endorsed Hillary Rodham Clinton last year on the day she declared her candidacy for the White House.

In a lengthy letter explaining his decision, Andrew said he is switching his support because "a vote for Hillary Clinton is a vote to continue this process, and a vote to continue this process is a vote that assists (Republican) John McCain."

"The ship is taking on water right now," Andrew said at the news conference. "We need to patch those holes, heal the rift and go forward to beat John McCain."

On the surface, the Clinton campaign appeared to take the news rather well, simply alluding to the idea that all Americans should have an opportunity to weigh in on who should be president.

But you've got to believe that inside, they are seething. Hillary is just now getting up a head of steam thanks to Obama's Wright fiasco and they had just started to believe that there was a chance they could win this thing.

Then along comes Andrew who says not only is he switching but he will call other superdelegates and tell them to get with the Obama program.

Remember, Hillary..."Revenge is a dish best served cold..."
