Sowing The Seeds Of Discord

Obama has done little to make amends with the Hillary camp, and his latest moves - not vetting her for V.P., not consulting her for advice on V.P. candidates, choosing to send out 3 A.M. "phone calls" to announce Biden as VP, refusing to help her retire campaign debt - are driving the PUMA (Party Unity My Ass) wing of Hillary supporters into a frothing rage. As Allahpundit puts it: "The only way this could be more awesomely awesome is if it involved robots."

Obama has sown the seeds of discord himself. McCain, for his part, has decided to provide some water and fertilizer, aiming for a bumper crop.

Bill Kristol, editor of the Weekly Standard, has spent some time pondering the "glass ceiling" for women in the Democratic Party. He also chimed in with helpful suggestions for the PUMA folk, including that that put her name into nomination for Vice President at the DNC Convention next week. He does so in the name of party unity.
