Exit polls: Wisconsin voters split on top issues in GOP primary

    Barack Obama is winning? NO way! You haven't even had a chance to post your "predictions" for his victory before the rest of the country has a chance to vote like you did on Super Tuesday..well, keep up the good work...once Obama is voted democratic candidate he will have his butt handed to him by McCain and your stupid country can have another four years of Republicans....that is what you deserve.

    Wow, so much hate between Americans as evidenced in this blog. Obama will unite us. McCain can join our unity, too!

    Mrs Clinton has nothing going for her but her husband. She might be able to win the election but she cannot govern. She would divide the countyr 50-50 and eight more years of nothing getting done. Vote Obama

    Shannon, thank you for that observation. I tried to write about the same thing, and my comment was "politely" dismissed & not posted.

    The Bush Adminsitration received a healthy economy at the start of his term. Look at the economy know, the Republicans have totally ruin our strong economy with a 9.2 trillion debt. Do we really want four years of the same thing? I think not. There is no way Republicans will win the White House in November.

    I think declaring Obama the winner with 0% of votes counted was one of the greatest media election coverage moments ever.

    Talking to Canadians

    Karl Rove was speaking in Vancouver Canada last night and his
    comments on the 2 Democratic candidates were very enlightening.

    some one on CNN should check it out .... fascinating....

    .... that while Hillary Clinton was absolutely qualified and prepared to be President , her opponent on the other hand has managed to get this far by doing relatively little.

    You can't be serious! McCain can't even get his own party to get behind him, you really think after 8 years of Bush, this country will vote for a very old hypocrite like McCain? And it is illegal to project a winner until after the polls close and the news stations never have.

    McCain is going to give either Democrat a run for there money. I think the Clintons are dividing the party...Obama is trying to UNITE people. The slash and burn politics are not working for Clinton but she keeps trying...this is going to UNITE the GOP thinking the Democrats will be demoralized by all the petty non sense...
