Though they saw the writing on the wall by January 2008, and thus disbanded, I have to say I'm so glad that, among the other burials that Barack Obama's election caused, putting a merciful end to the self-important whining by Sam Waterston and the center-holding pining by David Broder for Unity08-style solutions was just one more lovely gravestone floral arrangement that looks and smells sweet today.
Obviated by Obama: Unity08
It wasn't long ago that Unity08 was portrayed as a solution to a problem Obama solved himself.
