Senator Hillary Clinton paid tribute to her friend and sister Representative Stephanie Tubbs Jones calling her National Co-Chair her sister and her friend. Senator Clinton regarded Representative Tubbs-Jones as a friend and sister. During the Primaries where Senator Clinton and Representative Tubbs-Jones were under enormous pressure. Representative Tubbs-Jones was being threatened by African American leaders with a Primary and with threats to her political future. Hillary told Stephanie Tubbs-Jones to leave her but Stephanie told Hillary “When I am in it I am in it.” She sounds like Senator Hillary Clinton. They seemed to have a lot in common.

I am surprised but not shocked that this primary did the damage it did. I mean Black leaders threatening people with Primaries. I feel bad because most African Americans didn’t know this was going on. Several women who love Hillary as a sister like Representative Shelia Jackson Lee and Stephanie Tubbs Jones as well as Representative Charlie Rangel were all threatened. This is unacceptable. It’s also going to make White people threaten White candidates who supported Obama which is happening now. There is no Party Unity in the Democratic Party and that is thanks to Senator Obama.
