1B. Berkowitz questions DNC Chairman McAuliffe.

2. Senator Hillary Clinton [D-NY] warms up Chicago fundraiser crowd for U. S. Senate Candidate Barack Obama [D-IL]; Vision of Democrats based on mutual obligations and Vision of Republicans based on "intolerance," asserts Barack Obama. Obama's general articulateness, charisma and style dominates the stage-- even with Hillary within five feet of Barack. Seeing Barack and Hillary together, and in light of the above, raised the obvious question: if Barack wins and Kerry loses, in November, could Barack be a VP candidate on a Clinton-Obama ticket in 2008? Or would Hillary steer clear of Barack, to avoid being upstaged?
