"Happy Birthday Mr. Next President"

debrazza (Jed Report):
Barack Obama turned 47 yesterday and to wish him a happy birthday, he got the best present any kid can ask for: money. And a lot of it. Thanks to a coming together of Obama and Clinton donors, Obama was able to raise $5 million yesterday at a fundraiser in Beantown.
The festivities adroitly featured that terrorist fist jabbing duo of Harry Connick, Jr. and daughter singing happy birthday to the Senator next President.

John Kerry delivered some funny lines.

"I asked Barack what he wanted for his birthday and he said, just three things: 'Indiana, Colorado, and Virginia.'"

"John McCain is looking for someone for vice president who has more economic expertise than he does. So congratulations to all of you, you're on the short list."

And the donors had a love in.

"Her own exhortation to her supporters, plus the sense of urgency about doing everything we can to help Barack Obama become the next president of the United States, has motivated an awful lot of us," said Steven Grossman, a leading Clinton fund-raiser and a former chairman of the Democratic National Committee. "We all wanted to make a dramatic statement that we're with him every step of the way."

"We've stopped thinking in terms of Hillary people and Obama people," he said. "What was good about this was that we got everybody involved."

Who said Barack couldn't bring people together to spread peace and harmony?

I think I see the sky opening up, light coming down and celestial choirs singing right now as a matter of fact.
