Booing Obama

Via egalia from yesterday:

Mark Hemingway at The Corner: I just returned from the Clinton rally, and I don't know if this really came across on TV but there was a surprisingly audible number of boos every time Obama was mentioned. There were also a lot of people who didn't clap for him. . [T]he boos sort of took everybody in the press area aback when she first mentioned his name."

I tuned into the C-SPAN broadcast and noticed what sounded like booing beneath the cacophony of whistles and cheers at one time. Egalia, however, posted a Fox News video in which you can hear a baritone harmonic of boos when Hillary mentions Barack's name during the 1:24 minute clip.
