Hillary Clinton Advisers Leaving Denver Before Barack Obama's Big Acceptance Speech

The Trail reports that some Hillary Clinton top advisers will be exiting stage right and skipping Obama's acceptance speech on Thursday.

Clinton will deliver her speech Tuesday night. She will hold a private meeting with her top financial supporters Wednesday at noon, and will thank her delegates at an event that afternoon. Former president Bill Clinton will speak that night. Several of Hillary Clinton's supporters are then planning to leave town. Among them, Terry McAuliffe, Clinton's campaign chairman, and longtime supporters Steve Rattner and Maureen White. Another of Clinton's top New York fundraisers, Alan Patricof, did not make the trip to Denver.

Unity....ain't it grand?
