The Democratic Diamond of Unity

My friend Jon, author of Our Karl Rove, has a good post up about the fallout from the Democratic primary and what it means for supporters of both Obama and Clinton going into the general election.

The key take-away is to acknowledge that if you strongly support either candidate, you're experiencing planned animosity towards the opponent. The sooner Democrats step back and understand that this is planned and not personal (and "see the diamond"), the sooner the Democrats can coalesce around the presumptive Democratic nominee.
The "diamond" is a metaphor for the separation that occurs between candidates during the primary and the desired convergence on behalf of party unity that occurs as the general election nears.
