Some NC 'Women for Hillary'... aren't

(CNN) - Hillary Clinton’s campaign released a list of 100 North Carolina “Women for Hillary” Tuesday, featuring 98 of the state’s most prominent Democratic women – and two men with gender-neutral names.

North Carolina Public Radio and the Raleigh News and Observer report that Dana Cope - president of the State Employees’ Association of North Carolina – was inadvertently included in the press release of women backing the New York senator.

Also on the list: Ashley Thrift, a Winston-Salem lawyer and chief of staff to former North Carolina Sen. Ernest Hollings.

The Clinton campaign told the News and Observer: "We are proud of the broad support Senator Clinton has from women... and men across North Carolina."

    To all Hillary supporters:

    When you lie to yourselves, make the lie beliveable, that way people don't think you're insane, which if you're still supporting her you probably are.

    For 35 years of experience. I thought that she would have been able to run a better campaign. I am concerned now for her electability?

    Pray that her political credibility, survives.

    We all forget that NC votes republican in the general election - Dems: enjoy the primary.

    The "elite" don't get it! Elite people have never had a reason to
    "feel bitter'. Most of us at one time or another have felt "bitter."To sayyou have not ever had that feeling would be only hold true for
    the priveledged, rich, and clueless of Amerca's best elitists Obama who has been given the gift
    to be able to tap into feeling people's hearts and feelings in the
    bottom of the gut and souls.

    The young, also might not have felt, bitter, yet. Maybe you felt it when their parents were losing their jobs and insurance and pensions.
    Some young people have felt it.

    Yes, Americans are awesome, great people, who are survivors that can make lemonade our of lemons and accept their life with the help of hobbies family, and religion. We have pride and we can survive the
    sins of our governments "elite" souls.

    Did anyone say, "BOSNIA!"

    She's the Cliff Clayborn of politics with all of these tales. (the character from Cheers).

    I wish women could see that she is not pro-woman at all; just pro-special interest.

    Her greatest cause is herself, and the unsuspecting women supporting her, are being used as pawns. At least Jim Jones told his followers what was in the kool-Aid.

  7. Obama Supporter in NC

    This sounds alot like the Mayor story. She was suppose to have 100 mayors get together who were supporting her in PA. Only 19 showed up. ( I bet one of them that didn't show was Mayor Nutter hhhheee)

    LOL
    This woman will stop at nothing to win. Pathetic.

    Skipper, FYI. Us bible hugging, gun totting small towners in NC are bitter.

    To the Elite! Vote for Hillary because I am not.
    I will vote for Obama no matter what the news media says. My
    decision is already as firm as it was on Day 1. I don't care what
    they say about Obama.

    Come'on HRC supporters....can we now agree that the Clintons have revealed that they are willing do and say anything to get re-elected?

    Before everyone go off on a tangent remember this election is about “us” not our preferred candidate. Sen. Clinton ran a hard fought race, but now it’s time to unite the party. Dems 2008

    I hope those poor woman were not sucked in with Obama's Charade and mind manipulation. and falling for his lies, untruths twisted facts.

    He is a speech with empty promises.

    The gender card is all she has, but it is weak, because she hasn't fooled enough woman (I'm sorry, Hillary prefers "girls") to make this nomination's outcome any different from what we have all know it would be, since before Obama won Texas and Vermont.

    Gosh, does this really matter at all? You Obama lovers really need to take a chill pill! I think you're having a reaction to the kool-aid. Why don't you spend as much time researching BHO's bio as you do making such hateful, divisive comments?

    Let's talk issues. Hillary is the best for our military. She is best for our economy. She gets things done.

    I will vote for Obama if he gets the nomination, but I really don't believe in him, but he would be better than Obama.

    I'd just rather not vote for the lesser of two evils.

    People are allowing the media to "swift boat" Clinton.

    If you are republican then it makes no difference what is typed here, if you are wanting a break from the conservative concept we've had the past seven years then we have to come to grips with facts. More than the gallop poll has shown Hillary Clinton carries a disapproval of the American public of over 45%. That's not far from the current presidents popularity. Throw in those new voters registered in the past ten months and the independents that feel she's not capable of drawing bi partisanship, finish with those left that do not like her husband or what an infidelity back in the white house and it's pretty self evident – she cannot win in November. Finally throw in that she must carry the popular vote of have super delegates vote her in – which if that happens, more than the 28% of those who say they won't vote for her will leave the party. The odds are just way too long – Bottom line is it's time to come together as a party or face another four years with what we've had.

    Isn't Senator Hollings from South Carolina? Looks like the Clinton is not the only one who is confused.

    I am one of the NC women who is NOT for Hillary! Should I vote for someone just because she is a woman...of course not! I'd love to vote for a woman, but I'll wait untill a qualified woman runs for the office. And Hillary is not that woman.
    I'm an NC woman for Obama!

    This is just too lame and funny....Obviously they purposely did this because if it was a mistake then there are some people on that campaign that needs to be fired immediately. If I were the 2 men, I would "denounce" and "reject" my support of Hillary.

    Dems when voicing your positions PLEASE avoid belittling the other candidate. We are all in this together!!! Nothing good comes from name calling.

    Lets bring this race to an end and unite as one!

    In reading some of these statements it seems that alot of the Obama supporters are just as "bitter" and equally as big babies as he is...

    I can't wait to NOT vote for him...
