Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama will appear together for the first time before an audience on June 16, reports the Daily News. The goal of the appearance, to take place at the Spitzer-besmirched Mayflower Hotel, will be to encourage her donors to give to Barack Obama.

As we move forward, we invite you to join us for a National Finance Committee meeting with both Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama on Thursday, June 26th in Washington, D.C., to discuss how we can work together to support Barack Obama and the Democratic Party,” Clinton fundraiser Jonathan Mantz wrote. “Hillary ran for President because she wants to put this country on the right track,” Mantz wrote. “She continues to fight and stand strong for our values and priorities and will do everything she can to unify the party and to elect Barack Obama the next President of the United States.”

Clinton’s team is encouraging donors to throw in the maximum $2,300 amount to her former rival. If that’s what it costs to see them get up onstage together and smile and pretend to hug like they are doing in the above picture, hell, we may even chip in.
