    Already the slick Obama is taking free airtime to deliver a speech although he LOST Penn.

    What a pompous airbag.

    Too little too late for Clinton. Too bad her supporters are as delusional as she is.

    not only is he going to be another dukakis, but how about mc govern and mondale, lose 49 states. A bigot, racist, and liar is hard to get to the white house. America has been suckered by this guy and it is too late for the democrats to straighten it out, so the gop will win in nov.

    Absolutely, for a campaign that said it isn't about race – as it has turned out – that is exactly what it is about.
    Hillary covers every base.

    He sure thinks highly of himself- he will not only change the country but also the world.

    And yet... He can win ONLY about 50% of the votes of the faithful.

    IF he is so great- why can't he win a clear mandate?

    And we are not even counting Fl and Mi.

    And he is spending record amount of money.

    I will never vote for him because he is a hypocrite that is stealing the nomination by unfair means.

    Clinton is a fighter! She never gives up! Like her or hate her you gotta respect her courage!!! I want someone like her on my team. Snobama would run away when the going gets tough!

    No matter how CNN tries to slice and dice their slanted reporting the bottom line is that Hillary's mouth didn't even come close to the stated expectations reported four weeks earlier.

    Three words!!!!!!!!! YES WE CAN!

    Senator Obama will be our next president.

    You know the great thing? Hillary supporters are so thrilled but 3 weeks ago she had a 22% lead and now she only won by 8-10%. Not looking good when North Carolina is supposed to be in the teens for Obama.

    WOW... maybe CNN should congratulate themselves for giving her a HUGE platform on Larry King last night.... and a nod to ABC for the most ridiculous debate i ever saw!

    Seems the media is not as disinterested as it should be, after all there is one heck of a profit motive for them to keep the circus going. When you rent tents, you like circuses.

    Hillary is and will be a much more solid candidate to beat Mccain than Obama. All Obama supporters have to think hard what makes you support him. He has no experience at all, which can not possibly bring about any change as he claims. In the end, all of you are going to regret and resent about your choice. A vote for Hillary is the smart choice!

    Let's see if people are saying the same things on May 6th when Obama wins Indiana and North Carolina. The media cracks me up with their stupid analysis.
