    Comments such as this are sexist and tasteless.

    My goodness. It's one thing to talk about Brittany Spears' minimal extra fat (I only hope to look that good after two kids), it's a whole other issue to micro-focus on trivial details completely unrelated to Clinton's ability to function as a leader.

    THIS IS NOT NEWS!

    Her laugh sets her apart from other democrat candidates (Obama & Edwards) who are stuffy to be with.

    It is also Hillary's heart and passion towards public service, that sets her apart. Her only daughter has grown up and left home, and public service occupies her time.

    On the other hand, Edwards has 5 kids to take care of, while Obama has 2 young kids. While children are important, they can distract or reduce your passion towards work for the country.

    Hillary 08!

    This is another sexist & unfair attack towards Hillary!

    Edwards said he didnt like her jacket during the CNN debate, and now her laugh! They never say this thing to a male candidate.

    Folks, you are looking at the future of journalism. Issues of consequence such as the Iraq War, SCHIP, the US dollar being LOWER than the Canadian dollar, Blackwater, etc. actually involve the producer of the story to do some research.

    CNN does not have the resources to waste on research or investigation.

    It is so much easier to report on how someone laughs, or how their hair looks, or what they are wearing when they give a speech.

    No research needed!

    Take John Kerry and Al Gore.

    Morph them together.

    Throw on a pantsuit.

    And what do you get?

    Hillary Rodham Clinton.

    Democrats need to vote for the real heir apparent to Clinton-esque charisma- and his name is Barack Obama.

    Most of the negative comments refer to Hillary as 100% calculating, a socialist, etc. I really don't think people have a clue what they are talking about. It's that they don't like her and they really don't know why, so they say these things. I admit that some of her ideas are a bit left of center, however, her voting record is one of representing her constituents who are both Democratic and Republican. That record matters more than anything else. So please all you "know-it-alls" out there, save your comments that are baseless, thank you.

    Would forcing a terrorist to listen to Hillary's laugh over and over again be considered a form of torture banned by the Geneva Convention?

    WE WILL TRY AGAIN.. I HAVE ASKED 5 TIMES NOW AND NO ANSWER FROM A HILLARY SUPPORTER. CAN SOMEONE TELL ME WHAT EXPERIENCE HILLARY HAS WITHOUT USING THE WORDS FIRST LADY OF ARKANSAS AND FIRST LADY OF THE U.S.???? THOSE ARE NOT POSITIONS THAT QUALIFY FOR PRESIDENT. IF THAT'S THE CASE, LAURA BUSH CAN RUN FOR REPUBLICANS IN THE NEXT ELECTION AND BE THE FRONTRUNNER. CAN SOMEONE JUST LET ME KNOW WHAT SHE HAS DONE I THE SENATE OR SOMEWHERE?

    I am so ashamed of this countries politics...my god, people are dying everyday, healthcare is in crisis, my son attends a school with so little funding they don't even offer music anymore, our govt. spies on it's own people, our grandparents have to choose between medication and food, my govt wants to tell me who I should is the "right" god to worship...shall I go on?
    Yet here we sit talking/complaining about a woman's laugh. Like her or not, your colors show when you have to stoop to this. Shame on all of you. Bye CNN going to BBC for some real news.

    My God, you Hillary-backers are morons! She laughed her way out of an extremely important and legitimate question. She was asked why she voted to declare The Iranian Guard as terrorists, but she cackled her way out of the question. Is it not obvious that she is playing into the special interests and lobbyists to send our country into another failure of a war that is Iran? She is no different than Bush. She voted for War with Iraq, and now she is giving the authorization to go to war with Iran. Wake up, you idiots.

    Billary supporters: she is laughing at you! She does not want to answer the tough questions. She does that stupid laugh while she is thinking of how to phrase the fact that she is not going to tell you anything that might trip her up later. She is like a greased pig in the debates. She will not tell you what she will do because you won't like it. Is it possible that she could get elected and never tell people where she stands. We are not that dumb. Are we?

    It's all good. Hillary will still be cackling when she moves back into the White House in 2009. I'll be cackling too!

    That's right. Bush's wife is educated and he is a bumbling idiot with that stupid smirk on his face. Always saying " ya know what I mean". He walks like a cowboy with that stupid wave. My aunt in Baton Rouge was is a die hard Bushie. I think she is disgusted with him now. She won't even talk about him on the phone anymore.

    Since when did Obama become the owner of CNN. If she didn't laugh she would be criticized for that, now that she does you would think you all are planning a tar and feathering party. If so you may as well go after Mr. Obama, the real chicken. To afraid to stand up to the Navy on behalf of an abused Sailor. Is that what you really want in office????

  24. HILLARY IS NOT BILL, L.A., CA

    WOW...CNN DELETES ANY NEGATIVE COMMENT ABOUT CLINTON...ALL I DID WAS ASK A QUESTION ABOUT HER "EXPERIENCE"... IF SOMEONE CAN LET ME KNOW WHAT HER EXPERIENCE IS WITHOUT MENTIONING FIRST LADY OF ARKANSAS AND U.S. BECAUSE THAT IS IN NO WAY, SHAPE OR FORM "EXPERIENCE FOR THE PRESIDENCY????????? CAN SOMEONE ANSWER IF THIS ISN'T DELETED?

    Editor's Note: The comment would have been deleted if there was profanity.

    Oh for crying out loud! This is the dumbing of America and CNN you're the culprit! This is an intelligent issue? Why, oh why, do you think this has anything to do with world events and the future of our children?
    Pathetic.
