    kathleen retired Professional w/woman for obama,
    You always criticize Hillary because of your jealousy. Indeed, you were retired when she is still runing for the hardest job in America.

    Hillary Clinton is finding ways to distract zObama from the campaing but by the Grace of God she will not able to do that. She is very untrue and not trustworthy. She tells lies about Bosnia thinking that it will not come to light. The Clintons can do any thing to get the nomination. Hillary what ever you do you will not succed. You aree a liar,a drunkered and a false person. Stay at home and take care of your living corpse husband.

    Hillary Clinton talks according to her location. In certain parts of the country she may like guns and some other parts she like that whiskey shot. If you running for office you need to know your audience and your location so you can know how to talk when you are around them.

    Hillary is the obvious choice for your Prez. Obama talks out of both sides of his mouth, and stole from Hillary's answers in every debate. Hopefully Colbert's 'bump' will give Hillary more momentum... Hillary is the smart person's choice. Hillary '08!!!

    Why have they waited so long to start releasing the good stuff? America, heads up and pay attention! Lou Dobbs and H and C are gonna spill the beans on Obama. Just a few more days folks and it will be all Hillary. We might save this country after all.

    Michelle Obama – First Lady to be, please keep your hands off your nose when addressing in public. You are so not out of touch.

    Hillary always looks good as she is. Get rid of the Obama negative attacks and media hype and the Obama-zombies hate speech. Just her by herself always shines through.

    Go Hillary.

    I am placing this comment because I am tired of the double standards imposed on anyone of color attempting to succeed. Why is there no reprimand or condemnation of Catholic politicians whose priests are child molesting pedophiles? Why is no one asking Hillary Clinton about her affiliation with a group that garnered support for the PLO while she was attending college? I cant believe that the American people are actually considering John Mccain for President. McCain's policies resemble Bush's to the letter. Do you really want four more years of a Bush like president?

    Obama sucked as usual...Why do people want to support such a stuttering, hum-haw person. Without a script, he is duck out of water.

    Hey Robert in New York, I think you got it all wrong, it has been Hillary who has been stealing Barack's words and ideas. Check your facts before you go on record to criticize

    Hillary please do the right thing, your'e a great candidate but enough is enough, bow out gracefully, don't bring scorched earth to the democratic party. If you really care as much about winning in november as you claim now is the time to show it. All you Obama & Hillary fans keep your eye on the prize. Trust me, the republicans are ecstatic right now, they can't believe that were so dumb as to let them possibly win in november, I promise you that half of these bloggers saying that they would never vote for Clinton or Obama are plants to get us to hate each other, WE HAVE A COMMON CAUSE, WHOEVER WINS THE NOMINATION WE MUST SUPPORT TO CHANGE THIS COUNTRY. bOTH OF OUR CANDIDATES ARE ALMOST IDENTICAL ON POLICY, NEITHER ONE OF THESE CANDIDASTES ARE BIGGER THAN OUR CAUSE, THEY BOTH WOULD DO A GREAT JOB, OPEH YOUR EYES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Not just Hillary and Barrack, but John Edwards showed up too. Though I suppose that aspect of the show is not really as important to the election coverage.

    I'm totally sad that Obama was the only one that didn't show up, but they did save the best for last...

    I like that crazed Clinton woman. Did anybody else notice that she was doing an excellent imitation of the Joker in the debate, satanically grinning while poking Obama with one barbed comment after another? Fun stuff. She wasn't the least bit presidential, but, honestly, I think most Americans would rather be entertained than led. Our future's already Fubar'd. With the Clintons back in office, a proven source of entertainment, maybe we won't notice.

    I wanted so much more out of these interviews! At least they were pretty funny. And John Edwards was good too. Hillary seemed pretty awkward, and her "You can call me at any time... even 3:00 am!" was sad, but she was funny as well. Barack putting "distractions" on notice was good, too.

    It was really nice to see both candidates in a humorous situation and to see that they could both (at least appear to) be funny.
