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."

    sean don't worry Obama's screw up is coming. Obama will never NEVER be America's pres. There isn't enough young or black people to vote him in. Obama is a uniter, he will unite all kinda of democrats and rep and ind to vote against him in the general. Trust me on that one. look at the real new polls....

    Senator Hollings is from South Carolina! Clinton is not the only one making little mistakes.

    I think the expectation of the Clinton campaign is that everyone is dumb....fortunately – it doesn't seem to be true (anymore) – as her poll numbers sink...I look forward to the day when her name is no longer uttered....HRC supporters....Obama has support of Independents....Republicans...and smart Democrats.....Hillary has a small sect of "we want a woman as president" supporters

    Annie Oakley needs to get ahold of those women and teach them why it is so important to vote for a woman.

    WOMEN FOR HILLARY!!

    Hillary – I thought it's not about race or GENDER?

    /sigh

    (can you do anything right? and can you win on your issues/character/experience rather than divisive negative attacks???) Oh, that's right... you misinterpret comments, and then when they are volley'd you say someone else is the "negative" one – rofl!

    I think Hillary/Obama should just be attacking McCain and destroy the GOP!

    Last time I checked, Ernest Hollings was a former SOUTH Carolina senator.

    Desparation has a new dimension in Hillary's camp.

    I imagine her campaign headquarters as a bee colony. Everyone feeding the Queen Bee, and dying in the end.

    Gender card again. If Obama played the race card she would whine. That's all her campaign does. Whine and blame the media. Her campaign is sickening.

    98 bottles of beer on the wall, 98 bottles of beer: if some of these
    bottles should happen to fall, 97 bottles of elitists on the wall.

    Clinton is showing off. That is one of her undesirable character traits.

    Obama BEATS Hillary when it comes to LYING, he lied about not hearing Wright made racist, anti-America remarkd, then admitted later on. He lied about NAFTA giving wink wink to Canada, then admitted later his advisor did it.. He called MIDDLE AMERICA BIGOTS!

    THE BIGGEST LIAR BETWEEN THE TWO OF THEM IS OBAMA!

    Here's a new argument , since they are calling Obama an elitist.

    Lets call everybody on food stamps elitists, that way we demonize food stamps and get rid of another program that feeds hungry AMERICAN kids.

    This doesn't pertain to the article, but really, how could anyone want Hillary to be our President? I disagree with both Obama and McCain on several issues, but I do have a level of respect for both of them... I defintely admire Hillary's service to the country (which can not be questioned in my mind) but truly, she has to be the most quintessential disingenuous, and archetypal "politician" that is working today.... Earnestly, other than nostalgia, what do Democrats see in her?

    Come one.... we should all be understanding. Hillary personally drafted that list after 2 shots of crown royal and a beer chaser. It could happen to anyone!

    Give her a break. She was probably out drinking whiskey with her hunting buddies. Fatigue.

    THis is a good example of accuracy and precision for someone who claims to b the born Commander in Chief!
    She cannot even manage a list of names correctly, but she can tell stories. Bosnia, Nafta, the hospital tragedie, duck hunting, etc...Oh the little poor girl who walked on her bare feet to school.

    This millionaire has no link to reality!
