    Hillary is still, and always will be the better of the 2 canidates! How many of you singing the praises of Obama also voted once or twice for Bush? You people just aren't that politically smart! I won't vote for him

    Where are the final numbers that can be attributed to Rush's Operation Chaos? Nobody wins here.

  6. ObamaZoombie!!!

    First time donation right here!!! I just can't believe that people would really vote for HRC. She says that she made a mistake voting for the war, but in the next breath says that she would OBLITERATE Iran. WOW!!!! Flip-Flop all over again.

    I am glad PA is over. If I heard HRC say, "My father" one more time.....I would have have lost it.

    GO OBAMA 2008!!! Be an ObamaZoombie with me!!!!

    Who? lol WOW!
    Such a big name jumping on the Obama bandwagon...yet another supporter in a state the Democratic Party won't carry in a general election! When is BO going to win or make serious progress in an important Electoral state, which has even a remote chance of going blue? Face it folks, the guy can't win the big ones...and when it comes to experience and accomplishments, the man has almost none...he's my Senator, and the guy has never done anything except raise funds and campaign...

    Since after the Tx, OH primary, my wife and I have been praying that the people of Pennsylvania be enlightened in choosing the best person who will lead us to a more progressive America and they overwhelmingly chose Sen Clinton.

    Thanks GOD.

    THE MOST DISGUSTING ASPECT OF THIS PRIMARY BATTLE IS THAT IT HIGHLIGHTS THE REALITY THAT BLACK MEN IN AMERICA HAVE TO WORK TEN TIMES AS HARD AS A WHITE MAN OR WOMAN TO BE GIVEN THE SAME CONSIDERATION, RESPECT AND DIGNITY THAT COMES TO WHITE WITHOUT EFFORT. 2008 AND AMERICA IS STILL A RACIST, BACKWARDS, EVIL COUNTRY.

    If Obama wins the nomination, you OBAMABOTS had better dig deep so that he can buy the general election too.

    Imagine hearing HOPE and CHANGE continuously – YUK!

    Ostergard thank you very much for the support of Obama. He is the only one who can put this country back on the forum. The American people need more level minded people like you who have a vision to see beyond tomorrow. Thanks a lot for your support to our movement.

    Most people want the candidates and supporters to keep "fighting." Most people feel this is great for the party and the nation.

    Well, let us wait– "monkey see, monkey do." In months to come, the Dems and Republicans in the House and Senate will be "figting" and I will like to listen to those who say that they should STOP and focus on issues of interest to this nation. Why should they? You have told them to go to Washington and "fight, not get together to resolve issues." So, as instructed by Hillary– keep fighting warriors! All you need is go out and pay $4/gallon for gas at the pump; they will still be fighting!!! God bless us all.

    So I guess if Hillary announces another superdelegate, Obama will announce one also. I do not understand his back and forth tactics. Also, he is talking a lot of trash today now that Clinton won in PA. He might want to calm it down a little because he is being really negative right now.

    Thank you superdelegate, Experience alone will not get the job done. We need someone who have the WILL and the HEART, We need vision and inspiration, we need a new direction. Remember when goliath threaten Israel none of those experience warrior knew what to do, they told David he was just a youth, he did not have the experience yet he was the that brings victory to Israel, The secret to David success he did not fight Goliath the traditional way, traditional politics will not defeat economic/goliath, the old system will not repair Bush mess, We need real change, we need Obama.

    Hillary's decision to destroy her party's chance at the WH to spite Obama, will end in her losing the nomination, and will leave her hard-core supporters in need therapy for years. Obama will still be our next president, because she has lost the numbers game – and that is what the nomination is. Very sad for our party and our country.

    Thanks Gov. B. Henry for supporting Obama, we need people like you help this dream to come. We have some one like Obama who has started the movement of change of politics in white house of which some of us has taken with open hands.

    I believe in Obama he is the guy who can fight McCain.
