A no-traffic-light, one-store New Hampshire town is scrambling to prepare for Friday's joint appearance by Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, the first since she bowed out of the presidential race and endorsed him, reports the Concord Monitor. They're the biggest names to hit town since Arlo Guthrie in 1979, but maybe civic leaders shouldn't be too surprised—the town's name is Unity.
In the January primary, Unity (pop. 1,652) gave Obama and Clinton 107 votes each. "I think that everyone thought that symbolically, that was an outstanding place because of its name and because the result there was similar to what the whole campaign was—virtually an even draw," Obama's New Hampshire co-chair told the Union Leader.
