It's Friday night!
Sen. Barack Obama and Sen. Hillary Clinton made a trip together from Washington to New Hampshire – and trip to Unity. They had a lot of alone time together. CNN's Candy Crowley was on the trip too and we'll hear her stories tonight.
We want to hear what you think about tonight's program. We’ll start posting comments to this blog at 10p ET and stop at 11p ET.
And don't forget about our live web camera from the 360° studio. We’ll turn the camera on at 945p ET and turn it off at 11p ET.

Happy Friday! And, what a Friday its been on the campaign trail. By now, I'm betting you've seen the video. The priceless moment. Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton together again in of all places Unity, New Hampshire. Smart location. Give your campaign manager a raise for picking that town. (LOL!!) Tonight on 360, hear what both said to the crowd. Is it truly a united front? And, what about Bill? He was MIA at today's event. Will he EVER endorse Obama? Could there be bad blood between the two? We'd love to hear your thoughts. Blog away.
Sticking with the Unity gathering, Erica Hill is looking at the body language on stage. Did you notice all those smiles and hugs. Was it all just for the Kodak moment?
Also tonight, the worst case scenario comes true for one midwest town.

Travel Tip: New Hampshire is as hot in the summer as it is cold in the winter.
Best part of the trip to Unity: The Honorary Mayor introduced Obama and Clinton by telling us he's been a Republican all his life and voted for John McCain in the primary.
Readers Digest version:
She said any of her voters who were thinking about voting for McCain need to think again.
He started with an ode to Hillary, all historical and stuff, and then right in the middle he said, "She Rocks. That's what I'm trying to say."
Oh and a Clinton type dropped by as I was madly putting together a report to tell me that Hillary donated the maximum amount allowed to the Obama for President Campaign.
Also–sit down for this–Guess who else ponied up? William Jefferson Clinton
Wheels up back to DC

Just when you thought it was safe to watch political news again, take a look at those pictures of her and Obama standing hand in hand, and brace yourselves, Hillary haters.
All of you out there who are celebrating because her campaign is over, all of you who danced in your living rooms when she made her concession speech, all of you who said “Finally, the era of the Clintons is over.”
And all of you whose hearts were broken by her defeat; raise your eyes.
Because many political watchers here in DC are convinced Hillary Clinton is emerging from this election stronger than she went in, despite her loss... FULL POST

Apparently nothing untoward happened on the plane because now they are riding in an RV together. Yet another lost opprtunity for a hidden tape recorder.
BTW; the campaign says they absolutely positively did not plan to have his tie match her suit.
I have failed you, dear reader–i tried for substance. I asked a top advisor for the substance of the day.
I pressed another for news of any day.
On cell now to see if i can find any..
