    I am one of those old former Democrats that Obama can't reach. Soy Hispano y detesto el Socialismo que Obama nos quire traer.

    Hispanos tengan mucho cuidado con este charlatan.

    Hispanics be careful with this Charlatan. He does not bode well for the Hispanic community.

    The Obama complaint formula:

    If she says it, she's picking on me.
    If she says it, she's complaining about me.
    If she says it, she's whining
    If she says it, I'm whining.

    If I say it, she's picking on me.
    If I say it, she's complaining about me.
    If I say it, she's whining.
    If I say it, I'm whining 000pppps, OOPPs I mean she's whining.

    Mr. Obama needs to read some of these CNN blogs. He will then find out who's complaining and who's abusive. That would be him and his crazy supporters.

    I donated to Obama too for the first time today. Why, I wanted to see how the Clintons would spin the win and what trash they would throw out. They didn't disappoint me, Clinton was suppose to win Penn, I don't know what the surprise is all about, what she didn't do is win by double digets as some are saying, go to Penn State website. I have never been more disappointed with a campaign as this.

    Obama's on a path to destroy the democratic party...By refusing to own up to his connections and allow voters to vet him, he may win the nomination, but he will cost us the White House.. Obama's questionable ties to Rev.Wright are already being used by the republicans..Obama should step down if he can not honestly explain this, Ayers and several other stories that are about to break.

    Maybe you could get to Sentor Obama and please ask him he has not jumped on Clinton about the bold face lies she told in regards to her going to Bosnia and getting off the plane under fire. Reember this, she said "I remember...." Please go after Clinton on this point and show that she is a liar and should not be trusted and will say anything to get elected. PLEASE PLEASE.

    Bark & Michael, both suffer from hoof & mouth disease!! Any super-delegate who votes for Obama is voting for a change in the wrong direction. I don't care who gets elected this November but they better be prepared for wearing a servants uniform with plenty of mouthwash and wipett's available. Bark can walk down the middle of the road since he's the only one that can see both sides. Enough with the whining already!! We like women in pants who know the pain of child birth!! This is a Woman's World and we need to stop catering to these mamsy pansy men who can't think outside the box!!

    Clinton' s last hope is to get super-delegates at a greater rate than Obama but it's going quite the opposite. I think as time goes on the super-delegates are becoming emboldened to go against the Clinton machine. The Clintons' vindictiveness towards disloyal subjects, should they somehow win, has surely been in many delegates' minds. With a victory looking less and less likely and Clinton becoming more and more negative and divisive, hopefully more super delegates will now align themselves with Obama.

    Thank you Audra Ostergard. I hope you can influence other Superdelegates to do the same.

    We can vote early here and my son, in his first election, and I both voted Obama, by the way I use to be a Regan republican, my first election. Obama swayed me over but I refuse to ever vote for Hillary, if she is nominated I will have to hold my nose on election day to vote for the other guy. Anyone who wants real change in this country should and would vote for Obama.

    I just wish WOMEN would come to their senses – just voting for Clintoi because she's a women is just totally non-sense.
    I would love to vote for a female – but one with morals and dignity and honesty – NONE of which Hillary has!
    How Hillary is held in such high esteem is beyond me – she should have left Bill years ago...but we know why she stayed!
    OBAMA – stay on the high moral ground, don't get sucked into playing 'dirty" tactics by the Clinton campaign, keep away for FIXED DEBATES like last weeks shambles on ABC – it was embarrasing to watch, Hillary obviously knew what was coming, and was prepared for her "questions" and Obama's too!!!
    OBAMA FOR PRESIDENT 2008!!!

    Our governor is the super delegate, and he's from the town I live in. Doesn't impress me.

    Obama is the only candidate not guilty in Iraq war. In my view, he is the only one of the three able to legitimately participate in this race. Now, where is our Barbara Boxer? Why has not she endorsed Obama yet?
