Feminists catfighting with Obama

That divide in the Democratic Party we talked about the other day?
It's not just feminist vs feminist. There's also still a little left of Clinton-feminists-vs-Obama.
Is Obama capable of reuniting the Democrats?
Today we see another example of the problems he faces:

"According to Rep. Yvette Clarke, D-N.Y., Obama then said, “However, I need to make a decision in the next few months as to how I manage that since I’m running against John McCain, which takes a lot of time. If women take a moment to realize that on every issue important to women, John McCain is not in their corner, that would help them get over it.”

Rep. Diane Watson, D-Calif., a longtime Clinton supporter, did not like those last three words — “Get over it.” She found them dismissive, off-putting.

“Don’t use that terminology,” Watson told Obama."
