Gee Hillary how about you release yours as well as the missing transcripts from the whitehouse and all those donors for the Clinton Foundation.
Finally. Oh, and just in time.
Pennsylvania..........vote for Hillary.
Obama slammed the people of Pennsylvania, then to top it off, he 'made light of it'..........basically laughing in their faces.
America does not need a president who insults the people.
Hillary Clinton :)
Good, now where is the Clinton Library Donor List? Where is it, did it get lost in China?
. . .Why is Hillary trying to be so nice now, before the debate?
Hillary goes negative with snarky ads and Obama goes AHEAD in the Polls.
Interesting. People are sick of the old school politics.
Listen up, McCain. Don't make the same mistake...
Great move Obama!
4 million compared to 109 millions, and you can him elitist ???
Wow. From a few hundred thousand to a Million and now to 4 Million. At this rate he will be a billionaire in 7 years compared to the 109 M the clinton made.
HILLARY LEADS IN THE POLLS!!!!!!
CNN WOULD LIKE YOU TO THINK OTHERWISE!!!!
DO NOT FALL FOR IT!!!!!!!
GO HILLARY GO!!!!!!!!
Obama’s tax returns from 1997, 1998 and 1999..........?
I love this...
I'd call that elite... at least compared to me... they all are.
Interesting how so many say the rich don't pay taxes... but here is an example of him paying over 30%....
1.4 Million in Taxes... but people still think the rich don't pay taxes... unreal...
Where's Hillary's? I heard she filed an extension. I smell a rat!
Wow. That's a LOT LESS than Hillary Clinton. I can't believe she's trying to get away with calling Senator Obama "elitist." If anyone is that, it's HER!
Get out of the race Hillary. You're ruining the Democratic Party!
Where is 1997, 98 and 99? Let's see them. You wanted Hillary's pretty bad
Good to see his book did so well and he gave so much to charity.
Ya Ya Ya!!! CNN you are SAD. This media is a waist of time. We all know that you are such a BHO fan. But we are going to vote for HILLARY or Mc Cain in November!!!!!!! Got it! Get it! Goooooood.

Yeah..........real regular folk!!!!!! Hypocrites all of you.From Clinton to Obama to MCain.
By the time he is Hillary's age, he should have at least 109 million
Who is the elitist???
Wow... Thanks for doing the right thing Obama ,... i'll go and get your books,....
who is the elistist??
now who do you t hink will want to serve the people of this country?
someone who makes 109 million
or someone who makes Salaried income: $260,735 a year?
even a blind, deaf, and mute would see, hear and speak the answer...........
$260,735? No way...I am sure there is one of us in this blog who made more than Obama...This man is a rock.
5% for charity and they talk about the Clintons. Cheap MOMO!!!!!!
