My friend Robert Rouse got inspired to create a video after Obama's victory speech last night. Robert's very talented with putting together these homemade videos and half the time he's the singer as well. (I'm not sure if that's him this time or not; I can't tell.)

Robert writes, "After hearing last night's victory speech, I was inspired to create a new video. If you enjoy it, feel free to use it and pass it around. Let's work together, because together we will stand - every boy, girl, woman and man."

That seems as much up to the Obama camp -- and they are not yet not separate camps -- as the Clinton one. There are real issues at stake here, including the fact that both candidates put forth weak healthcare plans -- and that Obama's is the weaker of the two.

I think both campaigns are handling this end game badly -- to the detriment of the people. Especially given the Obama campaign's prior history regarding declaring the process over before its time, this demand to get on board first and solve the issues later is grossly insensitive and is causing more division, not less.

They should be treading more gently and magnanimously -- if they're secure the win is really theirs, they should be able to afford that.

That said, I don't think that it's going to work to have Hillary on the ticket and that camp should be remembering more why they wanted her on the issues and fighting for those and be less wedded to her as a standard bearer, despite that she's got majority support.

Hillary's people should concentrate on fixing the process and securing gains on the issues -- especially focusing on those things that make the bulk of the Obama supporters a little uncomfortable about his positions -- if the Obama supporters have even stopped to look past the hoopla down to the brass tacks.
