Outside the Obama event in Lebanon, New Hampshire.

LEBANON, New Hampshire (CNN) – Massive crowds continued to show up for appearances by Barack Obama as he made a swing through northwest New Hampshire, reports CNN’s Carey Bodenheimer. In Lebanon Monday morning, an overflow of several hundred who could not make it into the venue were later addressed by the Illinois senator. The Lebanon police department told CNN’s Chris Welch that one man holding an Edwards sign was arrested for disorderly conduct.

    I don't see any huge crowd in this photograph. Hillary's was bigger than that but the media is hyping Obama and hurting Hillary

    Being of rock star quality will not make a good president. Hillary has experience to bring about change.

    I'd like to see the everchanging Obama fighting with Ahmadinejad with his speeches...the job of a president is to make decisions and not speeches.

    Only Hillary can make Ahmadinejad chicken out...
    She means what she says

    Obama's bus is like the great river Nile that once it sets out on a journey nothing stops it , not even the mighty Sahara Desert until it delivers its load in the Mediterranean sea. Obama's bus will not stop until it reaches the White house.

    I hope some of you have been watching CNN tonight. They did a clip on Obama's grandmother living in Kenya. She is 83 years old living in poverty, still working the fields and missing some teeth. this is the testiment to the man. Can you honestly believe he will help the poor in this country, when he doesn't even help lift his own grandmother out of poverty? I am sure he lives in a Mansion, has a nicer lifestyle than most Americans will ever know, and allows his own grandmother to live in poverty. This is the man. For shame Obama.

    Is the american populace showing extraoardinary courage, to vote for a radical voice for change when we are dealing with the unpredictability of the war against terrorism. Is this the right time to turn our own politics upside down, obama style, when we didn't know how a surge would work a few months ago, and we don't know what will be the success of a withdrawal, not to mention teetering Pakistan.

    It shows the extraordinary courage of the american populace. we are not afraid to to take a risk.

    whos' that sap on mbc? we are not fighting a vietnam war. when did ho chi minh bomb new york?

    gjon cima, Hitlery is the biggest coward and chicken I have ever seen or heard of, she is only riding thr coat tails of her adulertous husbnad...Really, tell me what she has done??? I'll tell you NOTHING! He even done less than that. Obuma has bigger crowds, more people want him for the lib nomination and you are just another femanist nazi who hate men. Hitlery would cry like she did today if ever confronted especially by that little weasel Ahmadinejad or Hugosthere Chavez the little fat guy in Venuzuela.

    Obuma will continue tio kick herfat butt all over again like in IA.

    Go Mitt!

    who cares about Oprah? I guess millions of stupid fat people do. People can't you think for yourselves??? you need Oprah to tell you how to live your life?
    please wake up, exercise, lose some weight and look at how the rest of the civilized world is leaving their lives. America is heading in the wrong direction at the speed of life. people live their lives stuck to their television sets and allow the television and media to dictate their lives.
    Oprah is an idiot who forgot how hard it was for a woman to get to the power. I have no respect for her anylonger since she turned her back on Hillary. she should have sided with the women. but she is such a typical stupid woman, she sides with the men, typical women. instead of us smart women to unite together and be strong and unite against the hurt we got from men, we turn against each other and kiss us the guys who hurt us. or maybe Oprah couldn't stand the fact that there might be a woman out there more powerful than she is. I have no respect for Oprah what's so ever. she is an big time idiot.
    Obama stole all Hillary ideas and now he is turning into a major jerk. let's not forget that he put her down on national television many times. I don't like him and I don’t trust him. Hillary will make one good president, but I guess this country is way behind the rest of the world to allow a woman to lead. This country is pretty sexist so I am not surprised you will vote for a black guy who is inexperienced rather than vote for a perfectly good experienced candidate who is a woman. Well, I think you guys are making a big mistake for voting for Obama. On the day when you will have to vote for your president, the majority of people will vote for the white republican guy, and hence one more time there will be 8 years of long recession and republican, conservative and narrow-minded era.
    wake up and smell the coffee and vote for the right candidate who can bring the country back to the glory days of Clinton when the economy was booming and things were good.
    and one more thing, so what Bill cheated on Hilary, how many men out there cheat on their wives on daily basis? or how many physically abuse their wives? please wake up to reality. what's worse cheating on your wife or abusing her physically or emotionally??? please there is at least one case of abuse in every single relationship in this country. but how do you go on with your relationships?? you forgive and learn and go on, because you need each other for different reasons, money, children etc. so think straight before you vote for the wrong candidate just because stupid Oprah said so. Oprah please.. I have no respect for her what's so ever and I am a smart engineer and very educated and well traveled woman. but I know how this world turns and I hate to see smart women turning against themselves just because of jealousy. shame on Oprah. have no respect for her.

    3 things. 1. Why does a president have to be likable? Why not just a good leader. 2. Why is it all I hear from Obama is the word change without any details? 3. Also why is it Obama see a victim that government can only help everywhere he goes?
