CNN: "Angry Clinton supporters toast McCain, roast Obama"

Party unity seems to be lacking all around these days ... and nowhere is it more evident than with the Hillary Clinton supporters who are not happy that she was not even considered for the vice presidential spot on the Democratic ticket.

As reported by
The last place Kathy Archuleta could have ever imagined she'd spend the first night of the Democratic National Convention in Denver, Colorado, was at a happy hour sponsored by the Republican Party.

But the 54-year-old Democrat joined several other Hillary Clinton supporters, along with volunteers and officials from John McCain's campaign, at a Happy Hour for Hillary.

The event, sponsored by the Republican National Committee and approved by the McCain campaign, was a chance for McCain and Clinton supporters to come together for one cause: their opposition to Barack Obama's candidacy.
Recent polling data backs up that Barack Obama is not gaining ground during his convention. In fact, he has received a negative bounce since announcing Joe Biden as his running mate. CNN concluded:
As the convention heats up and tensions remain high over how to make sure Clinton's 18 million or so votes are counted, supporters will rally by her side, even if their pick in November is her enemy.
Her enemy? There is a reason politics is called a blood sport.
