    In other words to sum it all up....no one on both sides has any balls to impeach our dictators?

    It is far better for McGovern to keep his mouth shout, and let people think that he may actually know something, rather than open his mouth and totally erase any doubts that he knows anything at all.

    This is clearly a popularity contest, sure I'd vote for Mike Huckabee if I was selecting a next door neighbor.

    Thank you Senator McGovern for taking a principled stand. We need more Statesman with courage to come forward and make themselves heard. I suspect this sentiment runs deep among people and leaders of both parties. I hope this will bring other leaders from both parties forward to speak out.

    CEO and founder of RxPop.com says, “U.S. citizens are offered a health care system that is not only disgustfully inadequate and inefficient, but a complete and total moral ignominy. If the U.S. cannot adopt a more economical and stabilized health care system, citizens should be able to turn to Canada for help. Denying them this right could cost them their lives and that is unacceptable!”

    Over 46.6 million Americans are uninsured, with 15.9 percent of Americans lacking health coverage.

    Census data show that 46.6 million Americans were uninsured in 2005, an increase of 1.3 million from the number of uninsured in 2004 (45.3 million). The percentage who are uninsured rose from 15.6 percent in 2004 to 15.9 percent in 2005. The number of children who are uninsured rose from 7.9 million in 2004 to 8.3 million in 2005.

    My fellow Americans, wake up! It’s time for drastic change in U.S. Health Care Policy.

    Be sure to checkout a nice collection of videos featuring U.S. politicians speaking out on our nation's Healthcare Crisis at:

    No democratic candidate is going to destroy thier chance to reach across teh aile and get something done after they win the Whitehouse in November. This is the type of arguement youll hear only from somebody who has nothing to lose. And the american people would stand to loseas well, when things become even more partisan than they already are, with such punitive actions – even if Bush deserves it.

    It would serve everyone best if you let Bush be remembered on what he has done to our world and let that be punishment enough for such an arrogant self-centered fool.

    Let him be forgoten, or worse.

    At some point people in this country are going to have to WAKE UP! Our country is slipping so fast down the stinker and it seems as it everyone is sleep walking as if nothings happening. As the saying goes you have to STAND FOR SOMETHING or you will fall for everything. TAKE A STAND....if any President ever deserve impeachment more...Clinton had impeachment troubles over lying about sexual favors...my God how much worse is all that the Bush/Chenney admin has done to us: Lying to Congress about the reasons for going to War, Violating the geneva convention and thus possibly daming our brave military because if we don't honor the codes of war then neither will other countries and not to mention violating the laws by leaking confidential CIA information and lying about. On and on they continue to destroy our already fragile country. Will we just continue to allow it?

    I am watching the rerun of the debate. I am saddened that Hillary threw such a low blow on Jon Edwards. Perhaps, she and Mitt Romney could combine their resources to continue to mudsling, versus addressing the issues.

    Obama / Edwards should be the ticket for 08!!!

    Hey voters out there! Politics is complicated subject... Politics is not about looking good or trying to lecture people...Obama is the one beeing artificially prop up, not Clinton. The latter can actually do the work and bring us back to stability and confidence. Gop supporters and Independents are voting for Obama because they want somebody that they can easily tear down during the general election.. Think about it! In real politics race can not play a big factor, but experience count... This is the first nation in the face of the planet... Carefully select a 'Leader', not a talker or an immature.. Let us not mention Edwards; he's looking @ obama shoulders for running mate like last time; but this time he is not getting.. Even the most sublime forces of nature will not let it happen or let America in the hands of 2 immatures!! If they get the nomination, that will be it for the Democratic party!!! Thus, I'll be campaigning and voting for McCain or any other GOP nominee..This is not personal or the race for the Senate.

    I want to see if John McCain after NH is still a smart ass.

    Serge Smart ass comments are getting annoying as Hillary.

    Hillary and Obama plan to pull the troops and and let Iran take over and control most of the world oil with nuclear weapons is scary.

    Hillary is the only one who has been making posityive changes for the past 35 years. It is not just a n inspirational speech for her. Experiance is not leprosy .

    Do't you want an experienced, well informed neuro surgion to operate on your brain rather than a likable , inspirational speaker who promise to make change.

    It will be interesting to see if John McCain is still a smart ass after New Hampshire.

    Since Obama is preaching about giving government to the "people" I do wish someone would ask Obama what he has ever done for the citizens of Southern Illinois. Maybe he is well known in the Chicago area but there are many people in the state who do not live in Chicago. What has he done for those people? As you know he is a Senator from Illinois. His work for the state can't hold a candle to what Senator Durbin has done. I feel all who hear Obama should seperate his speeches from his actual actions.

    While the American economy goes down the sink and Wall Street plummets this year, it's so comforting to know that we have scores of narrow-minded paranoid dupes who are actively campaigning (especially in the South) against the Mormon candidate. It was the well-concerted effort by many Evangelical ministers in Iowa who thwarted the Romney campaign. We all know Pope Dobson was rooting for the Huckster from the beginning. He finally came out of the closet and is gloating about the "Christian' candidate. I'm just sure the Huckster will use his business savvy to mastermind our complex economy with his divinity degree from Oachita Baptist College. Then, he will deploy his cerebral army of has-beens, like Ric Flair (professional wrestler), Chuck Norris, etc., to sell scores of cheese wiz in the can, by the caseloads to the Chinese, so that they don't just dump their American dollars on the world market, as its value continue to tank. After all, Chuck will give them all a swift kick. Besides, I'm just sure the whole world will magically be charmed by the Gomer Pyle, with the smile and want to buy cloudy Arkansas diamonds at full price. Besides, we don't need no Wall Street elitists, right Huck. Just play the class warfare card. I'm just sure your Jesus would. South Carolina is next. Praise the Lord and stop the Mormon cultist, right?
    And furthermore, the Barney Frank crowd in Massachusetts is hell bent on getting revenge against Romney for his four years of conservatism in the bluest state in the Union. Frank probably called on the scores of jounalists from the Image Maker Machinery, in order to artifically prop up Mc Cain in New Hampshire from not only the newpapers, but to the television media as well, with the silly mantra, "the comeback kid". The forces of both the right wing anti-Mormon bigots and the left wing liberals are committed to stopping Mitt Romney. Romney may be the "rich" candidate, but he earned it and has also worked his gluteus maximus off the most, as well. He has also been the most positive of all candidates. His attacks against his opponents are sound and factual. Sounds like the American way to me. Trust me, once Romney gets bumped-out, the Image Maker Machinery will suddenly commence in drive-by journalism at those candidates they once artifically propped-up. Then, that will pave the way for the Democratic nominee. What a shame. Americans of conservative persuation will have primarily the bigoted wing of Evangelicans in Iowa, South Carolina and many other Bible Belt areas to blame. I know of several Evangelical friends who have already told me they too are discussted with them.
    LET THE FRAGMENTATION OF THE REPUBLICAN PARTY BEGIN.

    I wish CNN along with other news programs would give John Edwards more air time. He by far did better in the debates yet since he is not in first or second position the focus is on the other two candidates. Big mistake. His numbers are climbing. He would be the best person for the job. Is it because he did not take corporate monies or lobbist moneys cause after all the news programs are corporate. Maybe he should be in the pockets like the rest of them in order to gain attention in the primaries. I was one that did not believe that there were weapons of mass destruction (before the war started) yet I had to listen to news outside of my own country to get news that supported by thoughts on the war as our news stations had no guts. I probably will have to do the same thing in regards to the election and as far as impeaching Bush well we would have to impeach Cheney also as they are two peas in a pod so where does that leave us?

    I'm an independent in NH and Mitt Romney blew away the competition tonight. He definitely convinced me to vote for him.

    I was between McCain and Romney, but tonight, Romney strongly, intelligently and passionately showed (1) Mitt is tough on illegal immigration while McCain still wants amnesty and just calls it a different name, (2) Mitt is an economic genius who will cut the income tax and corporate tax, and eliminate the death tax, while McCain has proven to align himself with the most liberal senators against the Bush tax cuts, (3) Mitt is youthful, energetic and a problem-solver while McCain seems a bit tired and petty, and (4) Mitt is a Washington outsider and an institution-reformer, while McCain is an old Washington guy bouncing around the same, failed policies.

    I'm convinced NH saw their man tonight- Mitt Romney.

    McCain's a cancerous time bomb ready to go off. Even if he somehow gets elected, his melanoma is rediculously likely to come back and kill him before he finishes a term anyway. Any doctor who checks out McCains history will know it. Look it up yourself.

    Excellent coverage again, and I enjoyed seeing the ABC debate as I did not have access to that when it originally aired.

    I don't understand how Obama's poll numbers are rising and Clinton's are falling, especially after that debate. She is clearly so many strides ahead of him when it comes to being a pres that can get it done starting from day one. However, I also understand how sick people (including me) are of watching the U.S. deteriorate and would vote for anything that seems non-Washingtonian. Unfortunately, I think with Obama as the nominee, a rep will win the WH unless that goofy Huckabee gets the rep nomination. If Clinton pulls off the nomination, I think she'll be the next pres no matter who the rep nominee is.

    This is like a real life soap opera and I'm loving it. Keep it coming, CNN.

    Lame McCain, thats his name he has no brain.

    Using his mom to slander candidates is as lame as it gets.
    He is almost as embarassing as Hillary

    McCain like a wimp calling names from a safe distance in a school yard.
