If Hillary Clinton was getting new high profile endorsements it would be news. Her endorsements came when there was a mistaken impression that she would have a cake walk. It is not the individual endorsements, it is the number of endorsements of people who are willing to step up against the Clinton machine that is impressive.
thompson or huck all da way baby!!!
MOVE ON AMERICA
I'm getting a little bit tired of exPresident Clinton being portrayed as the black folkes "Great White Hope". I used to Love that man. But I saw the distain on his face when he talked about it being a fairytale that a black man really had a chance to be president of the United States. I changed my mind. No way am I voting for Hillary now! Because Bill would be part of the package. He's for us if we are his pet project, but not when we stand toe to toe.
Hillary Clinton is a lightening rod for all that is wrong with Washington , and brings nothing but more of the same division that results in nothing getting done.
Obama has a track record of bringing people from all parties together to find solutions , and SOLUTIONS is what this county needs right now.
I'm so disgusted with the DNC leadership!!
They have virtually eliminated John Edwards from the competition by leaning on loyal DEM elected officials to pledge for Obama or Clinton and not Edwards.
Because of their fear if he is President–his commitment to weakening the influence of the lobbyists and special interest groups will dry up donations from those very organizations who support the Democratic party.
It's a shame–a truly grassroots organization like Edwards, that was able to beat Clinton in Iowa, and has been labeled as the only DEM candidate who could be ANY of the GOP in the general election–is being ostracized and cast aside by his own party leadership.
I'm disheartened and disillusioned.
If Obama or Clinton run in the general election (even though I'm a lifelong Democrat) I'll vote for McCain or just stay home.
Next time around–I'll be an independent.
the clintons NOW COME ACROSS AS DESPERATE AND REGULAR POLITICIANS .IT WILL BE A MISTAKE FOR THEM TO BELIEVE THAT AMERICANS CAN BE MANUPULATED BY DISHONEST POLITICIANS IN 2008.
