    Why doesn't anybody ever say that Hillary is getting the White vote? The White vote is under the guise of blue collar or lunch pail voter.

    Obama can not win in the fall. He can not beat McCain. Yeah for Hillary. She will make a wonderful President of the United States.

    dear ex-Hilary supporter–There is nothing"nice" about senator Obama–its called "politics as usual". Face it–he is NOT above using dirty tricks and negative ads–never was–just fooled some of the people some of the time.

    Well poor gun owner's... the Clinton's put in the 2 toughest gun laws while Bill was in office.... and after running in sniper fire you still believe her...

    Well must be that Pa is not doing that bad, not feeling the house crisis, nor higher gas prices, and they must love the war...

    and thanks for the republican support for a Hillary/McCain ticket

    When people are voting for a person like Clinton you know America is really going down the toilet.

    People! Listen to yourselves! Are you really insulting an entire state of voters simply because they support a different democratic candidate than you do? And you are the *cough* intelligent ones? You demean yourselves far more than you do any PA voter when you stoop to this level. Is this really the message you want to send about your candidate and his supporters?

    Why would gun owners side with Hillary? She can't tell the difference in when she's being shot at, or not. Maybe she should go hunting with Dick Cheney.

    of course the gun owners chose hillary. she's a hunter from way back. a duck hunter! she's one of their kinfolk. she also drinks shots and beers like a lot of hunters. why not vote for her. maybe she'll invite them all to the whitehouse and go hunting with them sometime. they could finish with a shot and a beer in the rose garden.

    if anyone is reading this please tell me why these people are still saying that Senator Obama will still take the superdelagate votes...i really don't know what is wrong with interviewers who feel it is their obligation to speak negative about one or the other...can't they be objective.

    there is also another thing...how come all the analyists are saying if the state goes to either of the candidates that the superdelagates should cast their vote in that direction....wasn't New Mexico a state that went to Senator Clinton...however the whatever he is for the state...superdelagate cast his support for Senator Obama....

    not one person has said anything about that...so what's good for the goose should be good for the gander....

    fact appear that Senator will not win against McCain...i dislike McCain and all that he stands for, but i will cast my vote in his direction because i believe he is more experienced and capeable of leading and protecting this country more than Senator Obama can...

    From a Canadian who has been following your very confusing way of picking a President and I must admit I have a lot to learn BUT
    listen and peruse intelligently the words of each candidate (putting your biases aside) and it would appear to a foreigner – and not involved in any way – that Senator Clinton should be your only choice.
    She has everything that is needed to give the States a better image around the world -poise, personality,intelligence, very approachable and sincere – and adds some lovely colour to the debates!!
    I must state that many of your "best political teams" appear to be extremely one sided in the views expressed and appear to be directly trying to influence the voters of your country. I hope this is not the case
    but the primary system seems to be quite clumsy and the money involved gives one cause to think of better uses for a lot of it!

    one other note to the folks that support Senator Obama....Hillary can bring the economy back to where it should be by using the OLD methods put in place by the OLD PRESIDENT CLINTON, that worked for the ecomomy.....

    exactly how is Senator Obama going to fix our economy...the only thing I heard from him was "WHAT SHE SAID"

    apparently the old folks in pa know which end is up and maybe one day the rest of the country's population will vote for someone based on what experience they can bring to the table and not the color of their skin...neither senator obama nor senator clinton started this, however when over 90% of black voters don't know what senator obama is about, but they know that the color of his skin is the same as theirs....shame on america and the folks that say they are not racists....

    She's no gun owner. She doesn't know the difference between shooting and doing a shot. Boy, is PA gullible.

    I lose all respect for the Catholic church, I can they continue to vote for Hillary?
    From Ohio, Texas to PA...she wins the Catholic votes more than 60%.
    Have the Catholic people lost their sense of morality? Hillary is not even christian...(by practice-where is her church) yet she gets the Catholic vote...

    Could this be racism?
    What's up with the Rural votes as well?

    Obama is inexperienced and naive, that is the price. He has to learn more, arrogant and elitist attitude hurted him. He needs the job training at least 9 more years.
