Unity message from President Obama

I received this message and request for donation from President Obama:

Mary --
It is our collective responsibility as Democrats and as Americans to build a strong party that is well-prepared to win back the White House. I know from experience that’s something we can only do together, Mary, and here’s why:
You and I have the luxury of thinking ahead to the general election -- but our candidates do not. They’re preparing for the next primary contest and spending their time and energy making their cases to voters.
This is important work, but it also puts the eventual Democratic nominee at a disadvantage going into the general election. Our urgent priority is to make sure our nominee and candidates down the ballot have everything they need to take on Republicans and their massive fundraising machine in November.
I will wholeheartedly support whichever candidate wins our party’s nomination. And now I’m asking you, Mary: Will you join me in supporting the Democratic Unity Fund with a $500 contribution today? Our party’s nominee and Democrats nationwide are counting on your investment

The sentence, "I will wholeheartedly support whichever candidate wins our party's nomination" was highlighted.

Good reminder that we are all in this together. Thank you, our once and always President!

No more caucuses

Also, no more Winner Take All in the primaries. Let’s have one person, one vote, and apportion the delegates based on the votes. The concept of winning states instead of votes is diluting the power of the vote in the national elections ... let’s not do the same in the primaries
