MYRTLE BEACH, South Carolina (CNN) – Barack Obama is running as a post-partisan - he speaks of building bridges, forging consensus, and moving past red and blue states. It's a very appealing message to many Americans, but can it rally the Democratic base, seething to take on Republicans?
– CNN Senior Political Analyst Bill Schneider
hillary clinton is truly the winner, don't believe the press
I'm traditionally a Republican and he's got my vote!
Now it's Clinton against Edward. Very funny.
Yes it can! Tired of not moving left/right/up/down ... we need to heal and move forward.
OBAMA SCORES AT DEBATE?????????????????????
COME ON BILL STOP BEING SOOOO PRO OBAMA..YOU ARE SO OBVIOUS
BE A MORE OBJECTIVE REPORTER WITH YOUR ANAYLSIS
HILLARY IS STANDING HER GROUND
Obama is not, and never will be, the "Great Uniter" he imagines himself as. There are too many people who vote party lines no matter what – on both sides. They're set in their ways and just because a charismatic black man gets elected they're going to change all of a sudden? Keep dreaming...
He just took a step backwards by invoking the name of Jesus Christ.
I thought our President was the president of all religions!!! Keep the rhetoric to
references to "faith."
They all talk about expenses and the economy. The amount of money that they have all raised to run their campaigns is obscene. This money could be better used in so many ways, have we really come to whoever raises the most money wins???
he is connecting with many of us Americans....
It won't rally anything, and Obama said Jesus, wow something is going on. Hillary is still the strongest runner. She can play bills sax. They better not talk about mccain its Guilliani they should be worried about.
C'mon Bill. When did you become a lobbyist for O'bama???
the dem base wants to win in nov...but we have to look past the primary to the general election, and obama is the one who will draw many diverse groups to him.. realistically, how many republicans would cross party lines to vote for Hillary? They HATE her. We dems will need all the democratic votes plus independents and some republicans to win this election.
Hillary is right. Barak Obama refuses to take responsibility for his record, and that will just not hold up in a general election. How sad that he has consistently done the dirty work for banks and financial companies, while pretending to be for the ordinary working person. The first thing he did in the Senate was get up and speak in favor of the bankruptcy reform bill (on behalf of the banks and credit card companies) and that bill has left millions of consumers and seniors so much worse off. When will the media really put him on the spot about his record?
That's a good question. One would hope that he Democratic rank and file could think about the general. I have an acquaintance, a Republican, who loathes the Clintons, but finds Obama totally unthreatening. It's very telliing....
Slogans are a good introduction. Yet, with democrats, the deeds are in the details. The democrats need an experienced leader that knows policy.
hillary, blah, blah, blah. She is by no means inocent and above the fray!
Large Democratic Majority foos!
Pretty words only. Will do nothing to take on the Rebublicans
Why all these questions about Democratic base accepting Obama vs. accepting Clinton? I feel that Clinton will certainly energize republican base to get out an vote against her.
Hillary's a crook, I'm so tired of her. She has two people running against one, one of whom was an ex-president. This entire thing is ridiculous. I'm so disappointed by this entire system.
This country has been formed from red and blue states but again his inexperience shows that he must not know that !
I wish wolf was tougher and ask the lady about the the lies her her husband is spreding
Edwards is being treated like a red headed step child...ignored and overpowered by his older step sister and black brother !
He just spoke of his Christian faith, but failed to mention that he's in bed with evangelicals from the "ex-gay" movement. Gay americans be warned–Obama is not your man. He had an "ex-gay" hate peddlar Donnie McClurkin at his "embrace the change concert."
Bill – In looking at the blog postings my guess is that the answer is – NO. The base, for the most part, appears to be swallowing Hillary's partisan rhetoric hook, line and sinker!
