Can you tell us if Hillary Clinton has been given an advance copy of the debate questions when her campaign requested them, as was reported by MSNBC?
The first 'a' in nevAda is pronounced like the 'a' in dad, not like the 'a' in lawn.
Why did Hllary Clinton get so much talk time at the first break and the last word at the end. Was CNN playing the gender card? very disappointing. Also playing the abortion card was distracting to the real issues . Not even one question on a gasolint tax or any incentive to reduce our reliance on oil.We need more single issue debates and real debates not speeches from the individual candidates. Much improvement needed
how did Fred Thompson do in the debate last night?
Why does the main stream media continue to LIE to the American Public? Of COURSE Dennis Kucinich is still on the ballot in Michigan! Of COURSE he is a viable candidate! I guess they figure if they can keep him out of the limelight, and us ignorant, they will manipulate the election outcomes. The public is wising up to these shenanigans. Shame on you all for trying to manipulate our liberties – one of our most cherished duties in the Democratic political system. This American voter wants a president who will use our taxes for peaceful purposes – such as non-profit health care, subsidized education, subsidized green energy job programs, repairing our infrastructure. Rather than the rest who will continue to subsidize Big Business. So much for the "trickle down" effect. Looks like those greedy corporatists decided to keep it for themselves, while fleecing the American Taxpayer!
