The Best Political Team breaks down Obama's big win in South Carolina. (Photo Credit: AP)
John Edwards is the Ralph Nader (Spoiler) in 2008. Selfish, self-centered; does nothing for uniting Democrats. John “Spoiler” Edwards beginning to look more and more like Bill Clinton: Saying and doing anything to get elected, no matter what the results indicate.
It means this guy is acceptable by blacks, whites, latinos and every other person. Remember, Obama makes the whole world more interested in this race and that brings more respect for America.
Nothing it is like the others that many people are making since the begining. Carolin has got a lot of respect among people, but it does not mean that people will follow her to Obama!
Don' t care they both are irrevelent. Make them feel good now they will not win the nomination.
HILLARY all the way!
It means he has won his second (out of five primaries) with an overwhelming African-American vote.
Blogging that the Media is stealing the election is not working – call them instead and tell them we are sick of their inaccurate accusatory fairy tale comments about Senator Clinton.
It means that 80% of African Americans supported Senator Obama in South Carolina, what a surprise!
IT MEANS NOTHING. It means the election continues and may the best man or woman win!
It means that 80% of African Americans voted for him because he is black. No one can convince me otherwise.
Super Tuesday will tell us more.
Caroline Kennedy endorses Obama:
This further enhances Obama's image as a wholesome American Presidential Candidate . Most importantly it gives credence and authencity to American's belief that Obama is a movement of hope that will bring unity and fulfill the American dream.
While he speaks from the heart he has an intelligent mind that has laid out "must do" things on Health care, Economic policy, Iraq policy, Education etc. He has always maintained that "we went into Iraq carelessly but we have to come out very carefully"
It is highly commendable that the Democrats have come out in large numbers, with great enthusiasim to participate in the primaries. However Obama does not get enough credit for this. By endorsing Obama Caroline Kennedy has recognized this movement.
Thanks and regards Naga
Why won't you post my comments – this is what the rest of America is thinking?
NO CLINTON DYNASTY!!!
Stay strong over the coming weeks! You know the Clinton's will fire back with lies and distortions. However, it will be hard to spin a 28 point loss!
The country is ready for something new and fresh; to be united NOT divided.
Hope is a powerful message that the Clintons cannot destroy. The country is ready Barack Obama!
Martins comments are a reflection of how the race is shaping up.
Anyone who says that Obama didnt win South Carolina because of the black vote is simply misguided.
As an Independent, leaning Democrat, I find this somehow very disturbing...
The Political Affirmative Action Candidate, Mr. Obama, remains an empty suit that grabs the microphone, gazes up at the clouds, speaks to the clouds in paragraphs or books, and is never seriously questioned or made to answer about anything. It's all hope, change, hope, change, hope, change...
I HOPE that this situation will CHANGE, and the people, certainly the press, which has already anointed him, will begin to ask some SERIOUS QUESTIONS for a CHANGE!
Re: S.C. with 80% of the black vote for Obama... certainly no racial bias there? Additionally, there are perhaps 2 or 3 other states, in the South that are very similar to S.C.; that would be Georgia, Alabama and perhaps Mississippi.
I find it very troubling that anyone can get 80% of the S.C. vote and we still have people saying, "I'm glad that America has rejected race as an issue in the election process."
Think about this: The blacks came home for OJ and the blacks are certainly comin' home for Obama...
It means CNN's bias is working. Hope you're all proud of your 'journalistic' ethics. NOT.
Think of how the Clinton's must think when you take their good name and let a bunch of runaway 'journalist' cheat the American people out of their choices for President with your slanderous accusations against the President and Senator. Of course, if you had to report only on the news, you would have too much void air time. So, let's attack without evidence the Senator Clinton.
America is sick of it.
The number can be obtained by calling information.
Wow, what happened to the first Amendment?
I agree....the media wants Obama....and that is that....who cares what Americans wants.....by the way...we want someone who will be experience to fix the problems of this country....not just sound good giving speeches!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Call the Clinton's and insist they stop lieing, cheating, manipulating and destroying. Then get on board the hope express – join the future and leave the past behind.
The American people are smarter than the media gives us credit for. Well, they obviously weren't smart enough in South Carolina but that was a given, we knew what was going to happen there.
It's a sad day for south carolina......
Open Letter to CNN: This week, I stopped watching your television coverage of the presidential election. I found in its place refreshingly unbiased coverage on other networks, including, to my surprise, FOX. I read recently that CNN dismissed James Carville from its team of "analysts" as a result of complaints from Obama. However, everyone left on your team is openly hostile to Hillary Clinton, especially Carl Bernstein. It's a disappointment to me, as I used to watch CNN religiously because you were a straight news source. No longer. Ciao, hadios, shalom....another viewer goes to FOX.
How can anyone in their right mind endorse or vote for obama???
I'm suprised that CNN have not picked up on this.
on February 25th, Tony Rezko goes on trial facing federal charges of major corruption. The Chicago Sun-Times reported on Saturday that Barack Obama has just been identified by a source as the unnamed "political candidate" referred to in a document that outlines the case against Rezko.
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
