General Wesley Clark, a potential veep for Barack Obama, is pulling out the big guns in going after John McCain and his heavily touted military experience.

McCain frequently points out that he led “the largest squadron in the U.S. Navy,” but Clark said on CBS television that that was not enough to support a claim to the presidency.

“He hasn’t been there and ordered the bombs to fall” as a wartime commander, the general said on CBS. Clark is mentioned as a possible Obama running mate, although he originally supported Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton.

When the interviewer, Bob Schieffer, noted to Clark that McCain had been shot down over Hanoi, Clark replied, “I don’t think riding in a fighter plane and getting shot down is a qualification to be president.”

Seriously, Terry McAuliffe is completely insane.

Politico: Obama’s advance staff is very good at the visuals, and the Unity event is flawless on TV.

Even better: It’s dominating the news cycle without making any news.

And that’s one of the key things Hillary (and Bill) bring to Obama: Whenever he wants to deliver some unadulterated message to the American people, he just needs to drag one of them up on stage beside him and wait for the cameras.

Ironically, the reason the Clinton-Obama pairing is so compelling is largely because of the — vastly overplayed — notion that there’s some question of whether the Clintons really support him, whether they’ll show up, whether you’ll be able to see their fingers crossed when they’re talking. It offers an odd-couple dynamic, and a reason to tune in, for what you’re seeing today: “It’s fitting that we meet in a place called Unity.”

Obama had warm praise for her and seemed to go off his prepared remarks in a couple of places.

“She rocks. She rocks. That’s the point I’m trying to make,” he said in response to a shout from the crowd. Later, he said, “I still don’t know how she does it in heels.”

Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama at a campaign stop in Grantham, Pa., in April. Next week, they'll be reunited publicly for the first time since she dropped her presidential bid.

New York Daily News: Hillary Clinton will join Barack Obama for a joint appearance in Washington next week to persuade her donors to begin giving to the Democrats’ nominee, the Daily News has learned.

It’s the first known plan to bring together the victor and vanquished from the Democrat primary race and put their pledges of unity for the fall campaign into action.

Jonathan Mantz, Clinton’s national finance director, sent top Clinton fundraisers an e-mail today inviting them to the event on June 26.

Politico: John McCain portrayed her as a trailblazing model for aspring female politicians yesterday and now one of his top surrogates and vice-presidential prospects is taking the next natural step and promising that they’ll compete for Hillary Clinton’s supporters.

“I think many of those voters are going to consider and support Senator McCain,” said Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty in an afternoon conference calldesigned to prebut Obama’s speech tonight in St. Paul.

Pawlenty even compared the two senators, saying they shared important traits of experience and tenacity.

“They see and saw in Senator Clinton somebody they value experience in and, in many cases — in terms of her personal characteristics — her persistence and strength,” the governor said of Clinton’s backers. “Many of those same characteristics and more are in Senator McCain. So we think he’s going to be able to compete for Senator Clinton’s supporters to a significant degree when and if she terminates her campaign.”

The Associated Press is reporting:

Barack Obama effectively clinched the Democratic presidential nomination Tuesday, based on an Associated Press tally of convention delegates, becoming the first black candidate ever to lead his party into a fall campaign for the White House.
