(CNN) - Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid joked on Thursday said the sharp back-and-forth of late between Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama is having an effect on him.
"It makes me bitter," the Nevada Democrat said, invoking Obama's controversial comments that sparked strong criticisms from Clinton and Republican John McCain.
Reid went on to call the prolonged Democratic "healthy for our party," and predicted, "This is all going to be over fairly soon."
SORRY Mr. Reid – damage has been done !
I will NEVER vote for Hill-Bill.
Healthy for our party?? Does any of this seem healthy? I think not. All this is doing is hurting our party and now whomever is the nominee will have many problems to overcome. People hate Hillary, people Hate Obama – that means many people are voting for McCain. So, I dissagree with you Sir, this is not healthy!
I am voting for Obama, however, because I think he is the most mature and has always meant well while I cannot say the same with Hillary.
The sooner Hillary seems that she cannot win the popular or pledged delegate vote the better because this is NOT healthy.
Don't be sure Hillary will loose NC she is only behind Obama 9points now .And she is up in IND,KY,WV,PENN,MONT no wonder Obama supporters wants this ended because if she takes the popular vote then its all about the electorial college vote and Obama hasn't one none of the big electorial states with the blue collar voters which is what it takes to win the general election .The dozen caucases he won doesn't mean crap in general election and the super delegates know that !!!!
Yes, letting HRC self exposure & self destruction will make the party more healthy.
What it really boils down to in this race... is the platform.
Regardless of the political agendas a vote for ...
McBush = more of the same (probably worse)
Clinton = more of the same
Both McBush and Clinton will try the politics of fear to win.
A vote for Obama = more progress nationally and internationally in a time when we CAN'T afford selfish politicians in the white house.
McCain and Clinton are on the same team. They are both about keeping the status quo for themselves and their family. This strategy clearly DOESN'T WORK as it keeps millions of americans stuck in hopeless situations.
Bitter today for a Better tommorow!!!
VOTE FOR HOPE!!
VOTE FOR CHANGE!!
vOTE FOR OBAMA!!!
I am bitter toooooo!!!!!!!!!!!!! However, it will be bitter sweet for the next President of the United States of America Barrak Obama!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Hey reid your days as majority leader are at a end.Id be bitter too.
Bitter. Sick. Disillusioned. Disgusted. Disgruntled. Unhappy. Sad. Depressed. Frightened. Worried. Anxious. Uncomfortable. Nervous. Unsure. Confused. Fill in the blank....
Whatever adjective he could have used, Sen. Obama would have covered how a lot of people in this nation feel. Of course, those are the ones who aren't making millions of dollars and have every reason to be concerned about their present and their future.
Obama 2008. Period.
Debby- No different than Clinton not being able to remember being shot at by sniper fire. I can't remember every party that I have ever been to, but I would remember running to a car under sniper fire. Why isn't that still front page?
Haha, I like his sense of humor. This race is making a lot of voters and supporters on both sides bitter. Two and a half more months of this and I don't think anyone can deny having a bitter taste in their mouths. I will be glad when June gets here and still plan to vote Democrat, regardless of who the chosen candidtate is because this country does not need the Republicans back in and running things!
Does anyone have any info as to the status of the "Peter Paul vs Clinton" It seems we haven't heard very much about this lately. I think the only place I was able to find anything about this potential fireball heading Sen. Clinton's way was on the Huffington Post.
There are so many more really interesting articles on Huff Post that you folks who feel that the Pope's visit is irrelevant can get all their news other places.
Hillary or McCain voters are vomitous. You'd turn your back on the Democratic party and a candidate who's views closely mirror Hillary Clinton's views and vote for a Rapeublican?
Sick little puppies.
Hillary is a Republican in a Democrats clothing (i.e. George Bush's "I don't see anybody coming out of the Dems but Hillary" mini endorsement before the primaries started) She has voted for many of Bushes policies, hell she is the wife Daddy Bush's surrogate son Bill. THEY VACATION TOGETHER!!!! HELLOOOOOOO!!!!!! The plan is Bush Bill Baby Bush Hill Jebby Bush Chelsea... DYNASTY!!! LOL Change is here...Obama '08. Why do you think the Republican put up their duds this year, now they see Hillary Bush is not going to win, she's on a Kamikaze mission to sabotage this race for the next best republican thing...McBush! VOTE FOR CHANGE OR MORE OF THE SAME...Obama 08
People this is no joke some people are truely bitter after losing their job. I'm one of them. Don't get me wrong, when times are hard, God is my only solution. I don't know about guns because I don't have one!
Senator Reid is right.....this is absolutely healthy for our Party
Helps get rid of the Bad Blood....NAMELY the OBAMANITES!!!
Obama doesn't attack Hillary; he just defends himself. With all the stumbling Hillary has done lately, Obama could have slung lots of mud her way, but he didn't. But when he defends himself the news calls it mud slinging by both of them. Get real and be fair.
OBAMA'S TRUE COLORS HAVE ARRIVED---HILLARY CLINTON WILL BE OUR PROUD NOMINEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!! THANK YOU LORD.
My prediction: Hillary will win PA by high single digits or low double digits. Obama will win NC by about 13 points. Indiana will be close. Then the rest of the primaries will run out and in early June the Supers will line up behind Obama.
Yep....bitter is definitely my word for the week. It is good to see a candidate like Obama who can say it like it is. I hope it is over very soon as well. The Clinton's just need to go away....for good!
It's making me bitter, too. But not enough to vote for that doddering hothead McCain. He would be a disaster of Bush-like proportions.
I just want to know for sure that Hillary is going to climb on the Obama bandwagon when all is said and done. If she doesn't, that could spell big trouble for us in the fall. Someone needs to set her down and remind her that she's a Democrat 1st and foremost. Will she support our candidate?????
Hillary needs to step down, but, she's being a typical scorned woman. Afterall that is most of her base or support. She doesn't answer any questions and her campaign is only about degrading Barack Obama! Somebody please put an end to this nonsense of hers!!!
Reid is out of touch with America.
His style of politics is over.
Truth is America is ready for change.
After 20 plus years of Clinton and Bush, we need a government that will listen.
Amen! Finally, someone is showing leadership. Sometime...folks just don't get the hint and over looks the writing on the wall. You don't have to go home, but you have to get the hell off the campaign trail.
This isn’t about Hillary or Obama it’s about us average folks who are looking for a little help. One voice, one nation = change we can all agree upon.
