    BALLOT BOWL?!

    Can you commercialize this thing any more, CNN?

    Why don't you fill up your Ticker with corporate logos and fancy banner games?

    You know what I'd really like to see on this article is a shoot-the-ducks game and an ad for a dating site.

    I mean, if you're going to call it a "bowl", why not have some cheerleaders dancing??!?!?! That's very informative.

    In the meantime, I'll spend all my time looking at the CSPAN ticker...

    Dear Isaac,

    Clinton era with Bill was fortunately the 'bull' era for the economies of scale thats led to not only posotive Americans financial markets but global markets as well. So we can commend Bill for the budget surplus efforts and but also tribute to a positive financial times globally.

    I rememeber 9/11 as Bush celebrates his victory in Florida, I wondered why Bill did not make border security and national threat a top concern after being provided facts on the actual intelligence. We could have avoided the threat and save lives.

    Recession is the Clinton diversion from the real issues and I am quite certain that once we stop the war spending then we can correct inflation positively. Seriuosly, Hillary is not going to solve the 'recesession' she claims when she supports the Bush war plans in the middle east.

    Hillary flip-flops and should focus on current issues that can help prevent future threats and stand against the Bush doctrine.

    Vote for Obama and we will end the war, bring home our fellow soldiers, focus on American leadership, tackle extremism with allies based on global efforts, secure our borders, divert spending towards health care, education and alternative energy no more war spendings.

    I thank you Isaac for your comment and I hope the explanantion helps.

    Obama/Edwards 2008 equals same result as Kerry/Edwards 2004!!

    Flip-flopping is the same, but then you add in the fact of little experience and no action what do you think will happen!! If McCain or Rommney get the Republican nomination and Obama gets the Democrat nomination we will have another Republican sworn in, in a little over a year!!

    OBAMA CAN TALK A GOOD GAME, I WANT TO SEE ACTION!! HE HAS HAD TWO YEARS WHERE HE COULD HAVE SHOWN THIS "CHANGE", SO WHERE IS IT!?

    A FEW EXAMPLES:

    Saying Clinton made mistake by voting on Iran Revolutionary Guard....Obama didn't vote!!

    Clinton already put through a plan for universal health care, but Obama has just talked about it!! Someone should tell Senator Obama that while in the Senate he can submit bills to make universal health care available to the American people (THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES DOESN'T HAVE SOLE CONTROL OVER THIS)!!

    Obama has talked about bringing people from the other side into his office (i.e. working with Republicans). I remember seeing this from HRC during the 90's, most notable with the healthcare issue. I have never seen Obama work with any Republican to get a bill introduced!!

    JUST REMEMBER THESE TWO THINGS WHEN YOU VOTE!!

    CLINTON STANDS FOR CHANGE THROUGH ACTION....OBAMA ONLY STANDS FOR TALKIGN ABOUT CHANGE!! SO WHERE DO YOU EXPECT THE REAL CHANGE TO COME FROM????

    ALSO REMEMBER THAT IN THE 90'S IT TOOK A CLINTON TO CLEAN UP AFTER A BUSH....I THINK IT'S GOING TO TAKE ANOTHER ONE THIS TIME!!

    I feel most of the canidates are talking about experience and how much of this they have .Our so called president was suppose to have all of this experience and the best part is that his father was the president also. And none of their experience has gotten us no where so people need to stop with I have this and I have that it don't matter. Our presidents experience has gotten us in a lot of mess. We need some thing different and that is Obama. He is the only one that I have seen where he wants to do something different than waht has been going on in the White House and that is nothing but a bunch of crap!

    As pointed out why does know one talk about Obama's religion? He was at an extremist Muslim school but know one seems to knoqw, why? But Romney's religion is all over the place.

    As I read these comments I am dismayed at the ignorance several of them show. From your comments it is plain that some of you people are simply to stupid to be voting. Two quick examples out of dozens I might cite.

    Hey, "Obama Cheated": To begin, the Do Not Call List specifically exempts Political Candidates; and lastly, it isn't a STATE Law it is Federal. Please surrender your voter registration card.

    Hey, "Laz": Hillary had 35 years with Bill in office? REALLY? That would put him in office continuously since 1965? They got married in 1975, so were they shacking up for 10 years? Please surrender your aluminum foil hat.

    George Mcgovern is a sour loser.
    My family and I support our President and commander in chief!!
    We all as a nation elected Mr. Bush and we all should support him.
    He has made some tough decisions that will impact the future of our children and grandchildren and We are convinced he will go into history as one of the best presidents.

    Way to go MR. President, we are proud of you!!!!
    May God bless you always!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Would you vote for Hillary if she wasn't riding the coattails of her husband? Alot of people feel obligated to vote for Hillary because Bill was so well liked. Funny thing is – I was leaning towards Hillary before she and her camp decided to try and blast the other candidates (Obama and Edwards) on a personal level. Doesnt that seem a little desperate? It sure turned me off. Now I have to decide between Obama and Edwards.

    SENATOR JOHN McCAIN MUST STOP BUFFING. TODAY WE HEARD HIS TALKING ABOUT THE MIDDLE EAST. I AM SORRY TO SAY THAT JOHN McCAIN KNOWS NOTHING ABOU THE MIDDLE EAST. NICE WORDS AND GOOD SENTENCES DOESN'T MAKE A POLITICIAN ATTRACTIVE. McCAIN'S KNOWLEDGE IS INDEED VERY SUPERFICIAL. HE HAS NO SOLUTION TO THE CURRENT OUT OF CONTROL SITUATION IN, IRAQ, IRAN, LEBANON, AFGHANISTAN, PAKISTAN, SOMALIA, KENIA, SUDAN, PAKISTAN. YET THE LIST OF TROUBLED COUNTRIES ARE ADDING DAY BE DAY. McCAIN HAS NO PRAGMATIC OR CONSTRUCTIVE PROGRAMS FOR ANY OF THE ABOVE MENTIONED TROUBLED TERRITORIES. ALL WHAT WE HEAR, AS HE SAYS, "HE HAS SOLUTIONS". IS HE DREAMING ?
    ALSO, McCAIN AGAIN AND AGAIN REPEATS ABOUT HIS FOREIGN EXPERIENCES. I AM SORRY TO SAY, MR. McCAIN YOU HAVE NOTHING. YOUR FRAGMENTED AND SUPERFICIAL KNOWLEDGE ABOUT WORLD AFFAIRS IS WORTHLESS. YOU ARE A REPUBLICAN PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE. THE UNDERSINGED, A FLORIDA REPUBLICAN, RESENT STRONGLY TO YOUR LIES ABOUT YOUR KNOWLEDGE IN WORLD POLITICS AND SPECIAL YOUR SUPERFICIAL KNOWLEDGE AND EXPERIENCE ABOUT THE MIDDLE EAST.
    COME PRESIDENTIAL ELECTIAL YOU WILL BE CRUCIFIED BY YOUR OPPONENT AND SURELY AND DEFINITELY LOOSE.
    YOUR BETTER KEEP QUIET AND ABANDON THIS PRESIDENTIAL CAMPAIGN AND GIVE THE CHANCE SO A BETTER CANDIDATE TO CONTEST THE PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION.
    WE ARE FED UP BY YOUR EMPTY AND MEANINGLESS LESTURES.

    If you want more of the same. Vote for the “Other Person”

    If you want no border fence. Vote for the “Other Person”

    If you want Amnesty for Illegal Aliens. Vote for the “Other Person”

    If you want Free Trade that is Free to everyone but the USA. Vote for the “Other Person”

    If you want a candidate who will make you more dependent on the Government, then vote for the “Other Person”

    Congressman Hunter lets his actions do the talking.

    Congressman Hunter had a border fence built in his district.

    Congressman Hunter was an integral part of the Secure the Border Fence Act.

    Congressman Hunter voted against the 1986 Amnesty.

    Congressman Hunter voted against Bad Trade Deals such as NAFTA, CAFTA, and GATT.

    Congressman Hunter just like Ronald Reagan will go back to table to get a better deal for America.

    Congressman Hunter is making a Promise that he will keep to build the border fence in 6 months after taking the Oath as President of the United States.

    If you want more of the same. Vote for another Person.

    Congressman Hunter for President ‘08

    A call to Americans to be better, rise higher and be a world leader is more than hopeful – it is critical to the future of the globe. Diplomacy and high achievement by the greatest superpower is mandatory. The US needs to rise above it's need to be a world beater and become a world builder. Obama represents the first time a politician has shown some guts since Regan. Educate more, reward the overachiever, heal the sick, empower the middle class...stop dumping Billions into hostility and move millions into "buying" support – through health and education. Educated, healthy friends of the US will support strong future economic growth and profound national security.

    Hilary is the old guard...her "change" IS the staus quo – same old regime for 16 years. Edwards...won't beat Obama since he slid into the mud with Hilary. Rally behind hope, rally behind the future. The past has passed.

    Conrad,

    You obviously have gotten sucked into the bogus media hype about this election. In case you haven't noticed there is still a long way to go and many interesting things will happen to surprise/shock you. Stay tuned...

    Thanks God for the 1st amendment which suffered its greatest blow from the McCain-Feingold Bipartisan Campaign Reform Act (BCRA) of 2002.

    Ron Paul: The last sane Republican

    Interesting how, even as our country declines in an abyss of bureaucracy, runaway spending, undeclared wars, and government intrusion, that so many Americans still want big government solutions. It is sad to see in the debates that the Republican candidates bristle and get annoyed at Ron Paul for mentioning the United States Constitution, rolling their eyes and making funny faces as though HE is the radical. How far our leaders (and our citizens) have detoured from the values of liberty and small government and the ideals that people are always smarter and better equipped to solve problems than bureaucracy. I hope we wake up soon.

    McCain has way to many skeletons in his closet and constantly reminds us about his war experience. I respect his service to this great nation, I too am a vietnam vet but as a presidential hopeful he needs alot more that that.
    From taxes to immigration i dont trust McCain.. he spends way to much time with kennedy. Cronyisism at its best. a real insider.. In the Nevada primary I will reject him n Huckster too... One Harry Reid is enough...

    Vote Romney...

    Dear Bruce, Glad to get your attention and thank you for reading. Next step is please keep up the good spirit in reading on about Obama and do undertand the Clinton machine is inclusive of people since 1965 (as you say) in the white house.

    No need to remove hats and lets keep our hats on for the voting day.

    Vote Obama and God bless!

    I would love to hear someone other than John McCain talk about going after and getting Osama Bin Laden. John McCain seems like he is the only one that has not forgotten those men and women serving overseas fighting and dying to protect us. Any candidate that wants to go after Osama Bin Laden is the leader I want for President.

    Come on CNN... Where is Ron Paul in the list. There is a storm coming in this country, and hopefully soon. We're going to make every corporate executive work in a sweatshop... overseas in asia somewhere, where they sent the rest of America's jobs... Ron Paul is the best candidate by far, and becuase he represents all that the status quo doesn't want to accept. We need to get rid of the Federal Reserve... A bunch of cigar smoking bankers, with accountability to nobody, controlling the financial future of the entire country for their own profit! Americans have become so blind... and they live in a media matrix. Americans have now learned only how to believe, and forgotten how to think.
