The Obama people now are in the uncomfortable position of needing Hillary far more than she needs them. The pressure is great to choose Hillary Clinton for the second slot on the ticket. People know that Obama is capable of oratory but incapable of judging and choosing wisely. The elitist charge still hangs about him like the vapors of an expensive perfume. The racist tirades of Obama associates Fleger and Wright have embarrassed Obama and angered the voting public.
Never before in America has the saying been as true as it is under these circumstances.
"Behind every succesful man is a woman."
The slap that obama felt may have stung him, but it was needed, and well deserved.
