    I just don't understand. If people are wanting govermental change how can you really consider Clinton. Not only because she lied to the country abount standing by her man, And to New Yorker's Saying i'm not interested in running for presidency I want to help the people in New York, But were is she now. But how can she say she has been working hard for thirty some years in goverment. She was in the White house eight Years and in congress,in New york not arkansas,foe six years but the Government hasn't change at all. The appearence of change at best is what we got. Sorry we don't need another Clinton in control. If Bill had taken advantage of the chance to get binladen we probably would not be in as deep a mess as we are now.

    Where is John Edwards? I am so sick of the media electing the president. John Edwards is mentioned less and less and he IS in this race. Why? You are scared. He is the best canidate and you know it. Yet because you have your prenotioned ideas on who you think should be elected you ignore the other canidates.

    Women for Obama, Like I said, the things you mention were investigated to the max, no proof was found to support the allegations, and believe me, if there had of been any, we would know it!!!!

  7. Clinton Best choice for 2008

    Eleanor Roosevelt taught us that sometimes silence is the greatest sin

    by Mrs. Lyndon Baines (Ladybird) Johnson
    Former First Lady, United States Of America
    Women can move beyond the struggle for equal status and for material goods to the challenges and opportunities of citizenship. Quality of goals and the achievement of goals which will mean a better life for all. For me, it was the beginning of seeing how politics can bring tangible results. I always hope that the very best of our people will go into politics, and I am sure that some of our best are women. So, I say: "Don't hold back. Don't be shy. Step forward in every way you can to plan boldly, to speak clearly, to offer the leadership which the world needs. Let us today earnestly resolve to build the true foundation for Eleanor Roosevelt's memory–to pluck out prejudice from our lives, to remove fear and hate where it exists, and to create a world unafraid to work out its destiny in peace. Eleanor Roosevelt has already made her own splendid and incomparable contribution to that foundation. Let us go and do likewise, within the measure of our faith and the limits of our ability. Let Eleanor Roosevelt teach Us all how to turn the arts of compassion into the victories of democracy.Eleanor Roosevelt taught us that sometimes silence is the greatest sin.

    "Madame President of the United States...it’s an extraordinary thought. We truly are in a momentous time, where a woman’s potential has no limitations," said Streisand. "Hillary Clinton has already proven to a generation of women that there are no limits for success. She is driven by her passion for public service and her belief in the enormous potential of our country. Smart, capable and strong in her convictions, Hillary has transcended the dictates of what is thought to be possible for our time.
    "Hillary is a powerful voice for change as we find our country at an important crossroads. Under her leadership, our country will regain its respect within the global community. She will prioritize issues of global climate change, universal health care and rebuilding a strong economy. After 8 long years, the public will once again have faith in their government.
    "Another former first lady, Eleanor Roosevelt once wrote, ‘In government, in business, and in the professions there may be a day when women will be looked upon as persons. We are, however, far from that day as yet.’ More than 50 years later 'that day' is now upon us…and Hillary Clinton is ready to shatter through that glass ceiling for all women."
    HILLARY CLINTON MAKES HISTORY FOR ALL WOMAN OF EVERY RACE. A TRUE EXAMPLE OF UNITING PEOPLE AND NOT DIVIDING THEM BY RACE. Obama camp needs to start taking lessons from the experienced candidates!
    Hillary Clinton makes History the First Woman to Win New Hampshire Primary
    Black men were given the vote a half-century before women of any race were allowed to mark a ballot, and generally have ascended to positions of power, from the military to the boardroom, before any women .Why is the sex barrier not taken as seriously as the racial one?

    Please, I hope you all wake up and see what the rest of the world thinks of you. I Hillary has done nothing and will do nothing but continue to allienate the USA in the eyes of the world. Do you really think that peoples impressions of you are not important.
    For some reason Americans assume Super Power means military strength, guess what if it does. You were proved wrong.

    It means a country that can defend itself, it is a country that respects the differances between people. It is a country that knows it is okay to disagree. It is a country that puts itself on the line to help other people that can not, at the same time realizing they are not the only country doing so.

    Get back to the prinicipals that built your nation, stop letting the elected people tell you that your bigger, stronger and better than everyone else. Then you will be the Super Power(note a term the US media likes to use) that you were and so badly want to be again.
    This will not come with Hillary in power, it is not about Women, it is about people.

    A couple Dems and a couple Rep. seem to have their finger on the right buttons. Mark my words, the Rep. want Hillary because they know she is the one they can beat. The rest of the world does not want Hillary because they know the chance to fix the damage that Bill and George has done will only get worse.

    It is your choice, but it is my choice to soon stop telling people from other countries that the media is wrong when they ditch the USA.
