    RE-BROADCAST HILLARY'S SPEECH. AND CNN AND OBAMA SHOULD APPOLOGIZE.

    Obama knew that Hillary was speaking and still chose to start his speech. That was a risk he took, and CNN should not have fallen into his trap. What an adolescent!

    Thank you Wisconsin!

    To all of the Bill Clinton supporters on here, 9 states in a row since Super Tuesday! Obama has won 24 of 35 states so far and leads by more than 120 pledged delegates with more coming tonight.

    The Clintons were winning the polls in Wisconsin by 10-15% for all of 2007 and their lead slipped to defeat in 2 short months in 2008. How can you explain how she lost this much support in such a short period of time?

    The Clintons started to run some pretty funny negative ads which shows that they are willing to rip apart the democratic party that I love in order to win for themselves.

    There is a lot of work for Obama to do in the next few weeks. The polls are tight in Texas (with a 4% margin of error and 10% undecided voters it could go either way, especially with such a large latino community) and the Clintons are winning in the polls in Ohio and in Pennsylvania. Please continue to make donations to his campaign because he will need all of the help he can get to overcome the status quo candidate.

    And while Hillary grasps at straws, she will do her best to divide the Dem. Party. Why is she running for president again? To make the U.S. a better nation? Right....

    CNN, can you write more on this? You only wrote down 2 sentences. I am sure there are more stuff for you to write on this topic.
    CNN – the world is watching you!

    LOL

    It's about getting your rear end kicked, Hillary. Changing slogans once again? Sure sign of desperation.

    It's over. Drop out.

    I want to see HILLARY'S speech re-broadcast in full on CNN, ON AIR. Not some video clip. If you are going to broadcast Huckabee's speech, Hillary should get the airtime.

    Hillary is an intelligent candidate, but today is Mr. Obama's day. He is the candidate for change and the candidate to best unite this country.

    Thank you everyone in Wisconsin for giving us this wonderful evening and setting the stage for our future. The future of this nation is so important and the people will decide.

    Thank You!!!!!!!!!!!

    You go girl. You are absolutely right. Substance over rhetoric any day. Keep up the fight. We know you could do a great job as president.

    I don't feel it was right of you to cut off Hilary's speech and then give Obama full coverage. No wonder he is winning, you give him more coverage. It should be equal time. People are not getting to hear her full speech, so they are going with what he says. I enjoy your election coverage more than other stations, but you need to equal up the time for the canidates.

    Hillary the HOPE of 08

    I will vote words with content over just words. Who would have ever heard of Mother Theresa if she just said, "love/peace' or Gandhi if he had just said "justice" or who would have remembered MLK if he had just said "I have a dream" without his marches and putting his very life on the line. :(

    Whoever the next president is it will be a change but the transformation of America will take disciplined, sustained effort – every day hard work!

  21. pj

    how could she not say a thank you to the 43% percent of Wisconsin voters that came out to support her?? forget the lack of decency to congratulate obama, what about those blue collar americans who came to your rally's and supported you? too sore to say thank you just cause you lost, again?
    shameful.

    Shame on you CNN. I am sick of how you feature Obama on the network like he is Jesus, rising again. SHOW THE FULL CLINTON SPEECH.

    Remain surprised at the Obama campaign ability to avoid the tough questions we should be asking of someone with such limited experience. What is it with the media and this guy? We're reminded of the movie "The Candidate", when the Robert Redford character says, upon winning, "Now what do we do?" Hey we elected an inexperienced guy 8 years ago, remember? His name was George W. Bush.

    This countrys voters are disgusting for their 'reasons' for voting for a President. Shame on those who think it only takes words.......Senator Obama will fail to win the White House and if I lived in Michigan or Florida I would surely vote Republican.

    I wonder how many voters in Michigan were registered Republican and voted for Obama............

    They are setting him up for failure!
