Is Obama shaping up to be another Dukakis?

CNN

Watch John King at the magic wall.

(CNN) - Watch Chief National Correspondent John King provide a historical analysis of presidential primary results in Pennsylvania as he explains why the Clinton campaign may be trying to cast Sen. Barack Obama as another Michael Dukakis in the minds of the Democratic Party’s superdelegates.

    Something is definitely wrong with Obama when he spends 3x more in PA and looses...he is running out of air to keep his speeches aloft.

    Obama is now a fatally flawed candidate.

    The tide has turned on Obama, Rev. Wright, Ayers, McClurkin, Rezko and the whole lot.

    HILLARY 08!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    If Hillary loses and you don't vote for OBAMA and you don't vote for McCain, you have wasted your opportunity to chose the best candidate and one of them will still become YOUR President.

    Obama insulted the people of Pennsylvania...........

    that should tell the Obama supporters what kind of person he is. He lost ours & many others' vote .
    America does not need a president who insults the people.........

    Think about this fellow Americans.

    Now Stongely for Hillary Clinton

    what is the deal with the three abercrombie & fitch t-shirt wearing guys behind Obama in his PA concession speech? who set that up?

    CNN actually rejected an earlier comment I made because I called them the Clinton News Network...so they just proved my point even more. I think that if Obama should win this nomination (and he will), he should be sure to refuse to have anything to do with CNN...MSNBC is at least somewhat fair in their coverage.
