    To all of the good Catholics: Before you pull that lever for her, just remember how much she and Biil shmed the White House in the Lewinsky scandal. How could you possibly trust someone who lied to you 10 years ago, and lies to you now. Please vote Obama, and keep Hillary, the closet Republican, out of our White House!

    Older votes here are discriminating and they are full of it. If they get off their old, wrinkled behinds and read then they would know his policies.........with that said

    McCain 08'

    Youngsters are too busy staying connected on the internet to be polled. The youth vote will this year be more dynamic and pro-active than it has ever been. I won't be at all surprised if Obama pulls off a youth-driven victory in PA.

    Oh, gee, I wonder which way they're leaning? Hmmmmm. Could it be toward Clinton? REALLY? What a shocker!

    The fact is, the deciding group in PA will be the undecideds who make up their minds in the polling booth. And both sides KNOW that.

    I hope not...

    Old people historically wont vote for the black guy...

    Let's hope the people of Penn are smarter.

    Bill Clinton did recently call all old people who don't vote for Hillary... STUPID

    Yes..Older votes should be smart to choose the right candidate.

    Clintons are crooks and liers.

    The future of this country does not lie with 60+. It is with the young, and they have sided with Obama.

    Oh please! Stop spinning this like "every senior wants Hillary Clinton." There are just as many seniors in PA who want Barack in charge because they know Hillary is a PHONY. Stop with the spin. Hillary WILL LOSE.

    Wow. There's a shock. Older white voters support Hillary.
    That's pretty much ALL the voters who support Hillary.

    Obama gets African American, Educated White, Young White, 50 % White Male. This race is over.
