The team, which is being organized by longtime Clinton staffer Craig Smith is working in conjunction with Obama's whip team to help foster the image of a unified front during a roll-call process Clinton herself has described as an emotional catharsis for her disappointed supporters.
"If people get down there on the floor and want to strart blowing kazoos and making a scene we want to make sure we've got people who stand in front of them with Obama signs," said person involved in the planning. "Is it typical for a losing candidate to have their own whip team? No. But it's also not usual for a losing candidate t get 18 million votes," said the person.
