That Friday get-together in previously obscure Unity, N.H., featuring Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton may well be oozing with goodwill.

First came word earlier today that Bill Clinton, the former president who stumped incessantly for his wife and seemed to take none-too-kindly to her defeat at Obama’s hands, soon will be doing his part on behalf of the presumptive Democratic White House nominee.

Tonight came word that Obama would be doing his part to help the Clintons deal with a pressing concern: retire her multimillion-dollar campaign debt.
