    Look people,this is not a race war.Think about it,with all the experience we had in the presidency today,america is down.We got no real friends like the way we use to.The economic is bad,very bad.Our foreign relationship with other world leaders had degree to a point that other countries are looking elsewhere to do business.The dollars used to be the best in the world,now our dollar is far lesser that the euro,what a shame.It's time,to give a new look of change to this country to better the future of ameria.Lets vote for CHANGE.Obama,is the new face.Lets stand behind him a give it a try.If things doesn't workout if he ever a prsident,than the next other 4years we don't vote.It's simple,give him the chance now.

    Louise, that is not rubbish. I have seen pictures of him and he is not even looking at the flag, moving his lips and does not have his hand over his heart. The Pledge of Allegiance is a part of our America, as well as the flag. I guess that may not be important to you, but it is to some of us!!

    Chad, you're the one with the problem. I mean really? You HATE Hillary Clinton? She has so screwed up your life somehow as Senator of New York? Hmmm.....

    Obama won multiple states (2), that's a stretch... and Clinton leading Obama by double-digits in NJ and she's not the projected winner? Looks like those of us who are big Fox News fans finally found a new alternative!

    Actually, why don't we say who we want and why? I want Hillary because I share her philosophy in "It Takes a Village". I became a teacher because I held that philosophy long before her book came out. Parenting is important, but what is a child to do when the parenting isn't there? Sometimes we teachers, a friend, a good aunt or uncle are all these kids have. Her philosophy across the board on children issues such as education and health care; are all the reasons I support Hillary. Other than that; I know both are pretty much the same kind of Liberals. The one thing I know is that Hillary has done a lot for kids in her thirty five years; starting with the Childrens Defense Fund; for children and families who need to face and solve child abuse; because those parents love their kids, but they need to be helped in breaking the cycle. There, now fill me in with facts about Obama.

    It will not matter if Hillary goes on to win 18 States and Obama 4. The media will spin this as an Obama victory.

    Looking Good Hillary.

    Obama has held elected office LONGER than Clinton. I find it very creepy that people feel her tenure as first lady has uniquely qualified her to step into the roll of President without the usual adjustment period that all candidates would face. If her modest duties as first lady of Arkansas and the United States have so well qualified her, then I think she seriously overstepped her boundaries in the White House as someone who was not holding an elected office.

    I have to agree about the media spin...so far to me it seems like a really good night for Hillary...but nothing from the media about this???

    MGS, seriously of all the issues, that is your focus? What a clip of a tape shows, I'm with Mike and Wayne, race and gender will undoubtedly be mentioned. There are people in both parties that have abused these differences, the time is now to drop the nonsense and decide on the Issues, Education, war, economy, health care. As a health care provider who has to make decisions based on peoples' health and insurance I fear the vagueness of Hillary’s plan although I would love to see all my patients covered universally, the holes in her plan I fear will leave many in the cold, concretely, based on what each has said Obama's plan will save the avgas family 300 dollars more than Clinton's and both will require children to be covered. Clinton like McCain is for providing benefits to people with certain conditions, but if you know how hospitals works, getting those benefits is similar to running a marathon, tough, Obama has stuck his neck out and provided details and left room for modification. Hillary was great in 93, fast forward 15 years and she has become inundated with rhetoric and is more divisive then any other candidate, ask yourself, who makes efforts to work with the republicans, who drafts Bill's with Republicans...Obama. Face it people if we want to be united we have to acknowledge that we a not a nation of a singular political party and to realize our true potential of government must realize that too.

    Man, I noticed the multimedia bias as soon as Hillary was in the race. I'm glad people aren't easily led to think the way FOX<CNN and MSNBC would like. That's what happens when rich Republicans buy out news media, including newspapers.

    I am switching to Fox now because I have tried to send through 3 different messages about Obama and his background and previous religious faith and they have all been deleted!!!

    Mike; Just because the Republicans helped Bush rip off the presidency; doesn't mean that Hillary, with her experience will be the same as Bush. For one, she knows how to read because her IQ far exceeds his. Derwin, you've got a whole slew of problems.....

    Not to mention that Obama is committed to children and education. Take a look at his detailed Blueprint for Change if you haven't already. I like his ideas on incorporating volunteerism in schools as well as higher pay and incentives for teachers and proposals dealing with student loan payments. Did you know that he proposes that people who go into public service occupations should be able to use that public service as payment on their student loans? He wants change, yes...but more importantly, he has ideas to include everyone in that change. It's not the government giving indiscriminately to citizens, but the government giving and the citizens paying it forward. Sure it could be called idealistic, but isn't it time for some good old fashioned optimism?

    That is not my only concern. I am proud of my Pledge and my flag though and I don't want someone that might possibly do away with them running our Country!! Hillary cares about our children and our children are our future. She does have experience and I believe will make a change and get our Country in a lot better shape than Bush has!! I am a Democrat through and through and that will never change me no matter what!!

    Andrea, I don't know how old you are, I am forty three. First of all, thank you for answering my question. Yes those are great plans. I also know that Bill Clinton did the same when he was President. In fact your school loan would have been partially paid off if you worked in a high needs area; as I do. But I never went for the claim, because it was my goal all my life to return to where I grew up to teach. See, we're all good. All this hatred back and forth has really been upsetting to me. I mean who do people think support the Clintons? Let's put it this way, Barack is to you what Hillary is to me. It is all good. We both feel we know our candidates, and I will not give up my philosophy or support because we are apparently the generation that is suppose to go off and die or something. Man, I am still young, I care, I am here and I will speak and choose. Just as I expect you to do. Long live the PEOPLE!

    True that Irma! I'm 37. I believe that regardless of who wins this election that strides have been made. The democratic front runners are a woman and an african american man. That means something to me. I am proud to be alive when this dramatic shift in ideology is happening. It totally respect your support of Hillary Clinton, and appreciate you respecting my point of view. I feel that the nation CARES more than they have in a long time. I also feel like that is due in no small part to Barack Obama and his message of change. No offense, but I don't like the way Hillary does business. It bothers me immensely that after pledges were signed stating that the democratic candidates would agree not campaign in, nor seek to include the delegates from Florida or Michigan, Hillary went back on her word and has implied that she will fight to have those delegates from Florida seated after she won in Florida. That bothers me and I don't understand how her supporters justify those tactics.

    Don't you think everyone's vote should count?

    Just because Florida moved up elections does not mean their votes should not count.

    How would you like it if we disregarded you're vote.

    How important could you honestly be anyway ?
