    Despite the rhetoric of Obama and Hillary Clinton, they will cater to the corporate interest at the expense of the majority of the American people, because the corporations are funding their campaigns! They are both peddling false hopes! To stop this we must institute 100% public funding of Presidential campaigns and take the lobbyist and corporations money out of it! Also, the only reason Obama won in South Carolina is because Oprah campaigned extensively for him and over 50% of the South Carolina voters are black! We need Presidential candidates like Ron Paul or Mike Huckabee who are really committed to serving the best interest of the American people! WAKE UP AMERICANS!

    Will Jay Leno make jokes about a black president the same way he has done about Bill Clinton or George Bush? I fear race could become a national issue all over again.

    I thought the Obama was running for President of the United States. Barack was been close in all the primaries. He won in Iowa where it clearly was a state that was clearly for those looking at race as an white state. He did well in NH and in Nevada. It is time that we look at him meaning Obama as one that wants to bring the US together not divide.

    Go Obama 2008

    I think race is crucial here,though Clintons are popular in african american but that didn't show up in the polling."This show racial card is working still fine".

    I am from Central Illinois and I am wondering why our state of Illinois was not penalized by the Democratic National Committee for moving our State Primary up to February 5th, but the Committee chose to penalize Michigan and Florida for moving their Primary up?

    Over 92% of votes cast for Obama in Iowa was from Caucasians.
    What's with over 50% of African Americans doing the same thing in S.C.
    What, you think one group is different than the other?
    This is just the type of small minded divisive thinking that keeps bringing this country down.

    Penny- Please keep posting!
    I think i'll plagiarize your copy....sorry!
    If Obama is qualified to win the white voters in Iowa, he is qualified to win the black votes in SC. Why should this be a racial issue?

    We all know that if it was mentioned that Hillary won 80% of the white votes Al Sharpton and Jessie Jackson would be up in arms ready for a march.

    Everybody know that Obama will win because the black vote will be for him. they worked har to get it done. the race card worked pretty well for them.

    So what if Obama won 80+% of the black vote. He also won the white vote in Iowa. In November he will have both white and black voting for him and THAT is what it is going to take to beat the Republicans. Wake up!!

    okay i don't see what the big deal is here,, obviously black americans feel most comfortable with someone who looks more like them,, just like many white and latinos feel more comfortable with someone that looks like them,, that is not racial but personal preference,, it was not suprising that this would happen just as it was not suprising that it happened in N.H. and Nevada,, nor will it be any different when we look back after super tuesday

    The former U. S president Bill Cliton is simply lucky not to have exposed himself before his visit to nigeria. We never knew he is such a " RACESIST " .

    This "RACE" issue, we shuold not forget that " it is the colour of one's hair that determins one's race and not the colour of one's skin ,we have the "white"skin in Igboland and other parts of Africa.
    The "whites" are called white because the colour of their HAIR is white from birth.
    Anyone born with black "HAIR" is a black irrespective of the skin colour or region of birth.

    In reality, the colour "WHITE" dose not appear in human skin anywhere in the world .

    I, challenge the world best known alchemist and cosmethologists to produce a cosmetics capable of changing the so called "white skin" to Black skin.
