Clinton: I have enough time

ALT TEXT

    Wonder if she checking the latest polss to see what position she needs to take on the issues. Wonder how many "plants" will be in the audience to ask her the right questions. Apparently she's unable to think on her own.

    What part of this that Hillary doesn't understand. She offers nothing new buth the same old tired rhetoric. The american people is not looking to back to the 90's, those days are over. The sooner she understands this the better off the democratic party will be. To me it's any democrat but Hillary. She needs to get out of the race now, for the good of the party .

    People are crying about experience, but these candidates have old, status-quo, worn out experience. Their so-called experience gives us the same ways of thinking that Washington grooms them to be. Voters want real change, OBAMA 08!

    Clinton is a sore loser. I can't believe people actually support this bimbo.

  7. Cameron,

    I am a female nurse and I know there were thousands of us that could not go to the caucuses last night because we had to work the evening shift(unlike the stay at home cookie baking oprah watching women who made to the caucus and voted againts a woman). And our votes would have gone to Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton.
    I hope New Hampshire women will not let us working women down like the Iowans did. Pls stand up for us in New Hampshire. Thank You

    Hillary is the real deal. The other guys are just eye candy. She has time and a lot of big urban states ahead of her. Who care what a bunch of cornball Iowans think!
    Hillary will win it where it counts. Big population centers where the money and media is crucial.

    The Iowa Caucus was nothing short of a "political carnival" pumped up by the media and yielded few tangible results.
    Obama will be nothing more than fresh bait for the White House political sharks and be completely ineffective Edwards is all fluff and no stuff. If you want a good grin put Edwards in.
    Hillary Clinton is the answer to Americas need for change. She has the knowledge, determination and most importantly she can quickly navigate through the Washington political quagmire while the others spin their wheels trying to get somewhere.
    Go get em Hillary !!!!

    Zohre-

    You are RIGHT! Hillary is the one America deserves, but PLEASE may America get BETTER than we deserve and have someone else?

    I will agree we deserve Clinton, but lets agree we HOPE for someone else (and I hope its Obama).

    She has lots of time to run polls and see what her next face should be....

    Hopefully its also enough time for NH to realize she is not the best for our country.

    HILLARY YOU WILL BE OUR NEXT PRESIDENT!. You are the one with the most experience. Not only that, but I will love to see Bill Clinton in the white house again. I am a conservative democrat, and if you don't get nominated, I will go republican!!!

    Why Americans are listening to that snake oil salesman Barack Obama is beyond me.I dont understand why the Demcrats are always setting themselves up for failure.Barack Obama looks good and sound good but he is just an empty suit when it comes to politics.One experiment namely George Bush is enough for me.Way to go Hillary!

    Mercer, these are the negative political comments that Obama stands against.

    no more Man vs. Woman
    no more Black vs. White
    no more Red vs. Blue

    It is time to unite America. One America. The United States of America.

    This has nothing to do with Hillary being a woman any more than t has to do with Obama being black.

    It is about who has the vision, can rally the country to bring about the kind of change that is necessary. Who can reach across to republicans and independents and make change happen, who is not beholden to special interests and lobbyist. Who can bring about the transformational change required to make america whole again.

    Than PERSON

    Hillary has a true and clear message. Jack Cafferty can complain all he wants (he did enough on caucus night about her).

    Senator Clinton has worked for decades on health care, education, womens right and more. Don't think she'll quit because of a caucus meeting. You're mistaken if you do, and you're even more mistaken if you believe she can't do the job of fixing this whole that Bush left us in.

    HILLARY 4 PREZ

    I hope the people of New Hampshire, South Carolina, California, New York and Michigan all have more sense than those in Iowa. Go Hillary!!

    Hilary is right for once: She has enough time to pack up her bags and go back to the Senate where she will serve the American people outstandingly as the first female Senate Majority Leader during the Obama presidency.

    Go Hilary!

    Please go away HRC...we don't need your divide and conquer politics....we don't need four more years of blame-gaming and the "vast right wing conspiracy."

    We don't need four more years of corruption and secrecy, of pandering to the special interest, of lies and cover-ups, of broken promises, and every other nasty thing you bring to the table, including all your thugs and cronies that you hire to do your dirty laundry.

    We don't need you, nasty woman. And no, it's not because you are a woman...it's because you lack morals. You are cold, calculating, devious, and a liar. Goodbye...and hopefully, good riddance...

    May God help you lose in NH as well...God speed, Obama...GL...

    I'm not sure standing in the back of the room holding Bill's coat for eight years is the kind of "experience" this country needs right now. We need much more than another platitude-spewing political hack. Obama offers something new, and that scares the heck out of the Washington establishment.

    Bill Richardson can pass on his second "choice" voters to Obama in IOWA, but not on the national scene where Hillary Clinton reins supreme. The CLINTONs made Richardson what he is today and he called her a “…flip-flop…” on Iraq? Biting the hand that fed you!

    People, polls and pundits have unfairly exaggerated the importance of the IOWA caucuses with its, first choice, non-viability and second choice and artificially early state poll results. Also the caucus was an OPEN poll but the general election will be a secret ballot where all sorts of racism will be let loose by the GOP propaganda / personality destruction machine that will have Obama for breakfast. Then all the Oprah rallies will not be able to put Senator Obama-together-again!

    Super Tuesday is all that matters. Why do all the pollsters behave as if 2008 cycle is like any other? It is NOT! Super Duper Tuesday is different this time and organization and money will matter. Hillary has BOTH on her side and she is doing well nationally so

    Correction: Men are not afraid of women. I would vote for a woman before I would vote for a puppet like Bush. What I will not do is vote for someone who's already had a chance at change. Like it or not, Hillary's had her 15 minutes. I live in America, the most free democracy in the world. I do not live in the Empire of Bush/Clinton.

    Why in the world would anyone vote for yet another dynasty? There have only been 43 presidents in our history. Has anyone ever taken the time to learn about the family lineage of so many of our famed presidents.

    Isn't it time that someone who's family hasn't had a chance at running the country represent the people.

    If you want a monarchy, go to the UK – I hear it works really well.

    Edwards talks of change. Obama talks of change. Clinton talks of change. What are the changes we desire? We can all agree we want to live better, have more money, etc. What are our priorities? What does it mean to live better? It is true that the middle class is being marginalized but should we not look for the causes and address them in a rational manner? The affordability of advanced education along with retraining programs open to all should be one of our top priorities. Why?... because the lack thereof increases poverty and shrinks the middle class.
    Venture capital needs to be focused not on just $30 Million deals and up, but on financing small businesses with seed capital all across the country. This can only happen if you have the right incentives for investors to take the risk. Hillary Rodham Clinton is the candidate that has addressed these issues and has worked on them for years. She established a tangible plan and has executed such in the private sector. Personally, I vote for freedom first, and then my pocketbook. Why?...because without freedom what do you have that is worth having? Without financial security you have no freedom. If you are voting on foreign policy then vote for Dodd as he is the most knowledgeable and capable in that arena. If you are concerned with the financial future of the country and your family, you owe it to dig into Clinton’s policy papers and into her personal history of accomplishment. In this day of 30 second sound bites it’s all about projecting an image. Packaging is nice but did you marry for beauty or did you marry for love?

    I just want to say to all the democrats you better wake up and smell the coffee. With the world in a mess and the United States headed into a recession do you really want someone who has 2 years in the senate and no foreign policy experience. Do you want someone who will tell you hes for change and doesnt know what to say except when his advisors tell him what to say. Do you want someone who brings Oprah Winfrey in to get a large crown and hope the women who likes Oprah will vote for him. Look what is happening all around the world. In Kenya Darfur Pakistan Lebanon Iraq Iran Syria China Russia North Korea and all over the Middle East. Do you want someone who has about as much foreign policy as did George Bush and you see what happened to us. People forget about the nineties When Bill Clinton was in there and how he balanced the budget. Well Hillary is just as good as Bill. Women are being elected all over Europe because the people has found out men just cant do it any more

    Sincerely
    Don
