    This to you, New Democrat and everbody else that says that they won't vote at all if their candidate does not get the nomination. What would you accomplish by doing this besides silencing your voice. The Republicans that I know in my state are livid that they have McCain as their nominee. But, they are not saying that they are going to stay home in Nov. They are banding together to unite their party. Whether it is Clinton, Obama or McCain, vote for the person that you feel can do the best to unite the country and get the job done. If we really felt that experience is better than change, then Bill Clinton does not win in 1992 as a then unknown governor unseating an incumbent President. The change in 1992 that Bill Clinton represented in 1992 is exactly why I registered to vote. I see the same message with Obama and so does a lot of other people. Clinton and Obama both have lit a fire in this party that we have not had since '92. Keep the fire, take back the White House.

    Keep em coming! Who won Penn? I would say reducing a forecasted 30 point win by Billary to 10 shows clearly. As these young voters (the ones that were playing video games and paying absolutely no attention to the news the last 15 years) now coming to voting age learn more of the shennanagans(?) of the Clintons over the years, and are now witnessing it first hand (Hillary...DUCK!) will realize she should be rendered ineligible to hold any office. She scares the hell out of me! Obama clearly won the state.

    When the pressure's on, the Clintons' become Republicans using negative and underhanded tactics.

    On another note, have the Clintons' promised Candy Crowley anything? Her reporting is more biased than the network she reports to.

    Wrong move.

    Why is he being endorsed?

    it is common sense that he should not be endorsed after he rudely spoke to the people of Pennsylvania.

    We do not need a president who slams the American people. And he knew what he was saying.

    Strongely now for Hillary Clinton!!!!!!!!!!

    Oh yeah..oh yeah...its our birthday...its our birthday!!

    Go OBAMA!
    I predict that John Edwards will endorse Obama right after he wins North Carolina...and Indiana. That should put an end to this Democratic war. And I predict that John McCain will be way easier on Obama then Hillary will. If she has done nothing else she has Vetted Obama and made him more experienced. Oops! there goes that complaint/strategy from the Clinton team! :)

    I have no regrets about casting my vote for Senator Obama. Two weeks will be plenty of time for him to convert a 4 point deficit in Indiana to a win and he will win handily in North Carolina. The only possible way for Senator Clinton to become the nominee will be if the superdelegates go against the popular vote and pledged delegate votes which will be in Obama's favor. If that happens, you will witness the utter annihilation of the Democratic party.

    I just donated for the 3rd time today to Barack Obama's campaign because I do not want an experienced liar to run our white house.
