FROM CNN's Jack Cafferty:

It was five months ago today that an unknown black senator rode into the all-white state of Iowa and absolutely ruined Hillary Clinton's day. And the day after. And the day after that. And pretty much every day since.

Now it looks like it's about over. It's been historic. And bloody. And very expensive. And despite the open invitation from George Bush to the Democrats to simply walk into the White House, a Democratic presidency starting in 2009 is still a long way from a sure thing.

The breakthrough candidacies of the first woman and first African-American with a real shot for the nation's highest office may have torn the Democratic Party to shreds. Clinton and Obama polarized the electorate. And along the way, it got very nasty. We still don't know what it will take for Hillary Clinton to climb aboard the Obama express, and so far she's done little more than pay lip service to the idea of being a real team player and working as hard to unite the Democrats as she did to defeat Barack Obama.

Unless the Democrats can pull themselves together, the campaign of 2008 will go into the history books as the greatest opportunity ever squandered in American politics.

Here’s my question to you: What's the best way for the Democrats to begin uniting the party for November?

Interested to know which ones made it on air?
