I think the BBC are nervous about the reports that many Hillary Clinton supporting Democrats are going to vote McCain in 2008 so as to give Hillary another chance in 2012.
"Clinton urges party to back Obama - Hillary Clinton calls on the Democrats to back her former rival Barack Obama for president, at the party's convention in Denver."
"Clinton on 'fight for the future'
Key excerpts: Hillary Clinton
'Hero' Clinton plays killer scene
Diary: Time for red meat
In pictures: Denver convention
'No evidence' of threat to Obam"
Do remember these headlines and the amount of coverage. Take screen dumps of the news headlines because the contrast with the coverage of McCain's choice of running mate and the Republican convention will be stark. The BBC consider Democratic party intrigue and gossip to be more newsworthy than the annexation of territory in Europe by Russia. A story of a snail farting on the Isle of Wight would knock McCain off of the top story. Also expect much coverage of sceptical Democrats and non-McCain supporting Republicans during the Republican convention, in contrast with the almost wall to wall approval Obama is credited with.
