Hillary Clinton's staff is creating a 40-member "whip team" for the Democratic convention to prevent her supporters from launching embarrassing anti-Obama demonstrations during the floor vote on her nomination.
The team is working along with Obama's floor organizers to help present the appearance of a unified front during the roll-call process.
"If people get down there on the floor and want to start blowing kazoos and making a scene, we want to make sure we've got people who stand in front of them with Obama signs," a staffer involved in the planning told Politico.
"Is it typical for a losing candidate to have their own whip team? No. But it's also not usual for a losing candidate to get 18 million votes either.”
Clinton spokesperson Kathleen Strand said: “We have been and are working closely with the Obama campaign to make sure we have an exciting and unified convention.”
