    Great to have her endorsement!

    It's going to take people like Ms. Ostergard to continue to light the path for others who are still in the shadows. Especially women who vote for Hillary as if gender was the only issue....

    GRACIAS, Ms. Ostergard!

    Obama 2008!

    Obama's magic number is about 100 now. If the other contests go according to plan, he now needs 100 more superdelegates to get the nomination, out of the approximately 350 available.

    LET'S FACE IT SHE'S NOT GOING TO WIN NC IT WILL BE OBAMA BY 10% OR MORE. INDY. WILL BE A TOSS UP IF SHE LOSES INDY. IT'S GOOD NIGHT HILLARY. LATEST POLL OUT OF NC HAS OBAMA BY 14% WITH 14 DAYS TO GO. OF COURSE HILLARY WILL SAY THAT NC DOES NOT COUNT IT'S A SMALL STATE. SHE ALSO SAID TODAY SHE HAS MORE VOTES THAN OBAMA, IS THIS LADY NUTS. FL. AND MICH. DON'T COUNT HILLARY YOU SAID THIS YOURSELF. I REALLY THINK SHE'S STARTING TO BELIEVE THIS CRAP SHE PUTS OUT. I'M STILL BEHIND IN STATES, VOTES AND DELEGATES AS A MATTER OF FACT THE DELEGATE RACE IS OVER I CAN'T CATCH HIM. BUT I'M MORE ELECTABLE SO GIVE IT TO ME. MAMA TAKE ME HOME AND PUT ME TO BED, I'VE HEARD ENOUGH AND I KNOW WHEN I'VE HEARD TO MUCH.

    GOBAMA!!!!

    He shaved her insurmountable lead to under 10%. That is the TRUE win!!! I am so proud of you.

    **off to donate again**

    And don't feel pressured to debate unless this time the moderators work on YOUR campaign. Fair is fair.

    Hillary can not even unit with her own husband, how is she going to unit the Nation?
    Hillary lied to Ohio and she got away with it. She trick, twist the words to elderly, senior citizens & uneducated voters.
    Hellary is abusing the innocent voters.
    VOTE ANYONE BUT HILLARY

    WOW thanx Dan for this info! (I don't want to be accused of STEALING it from you (gee Hillary has gotten ME paranoid)

    Can I add one thing? It seems when Hillary wins she BARELY wins but look at all of the BLOWOUTS that Obama has over her!!

    Why dont we hear more about these MAJOR Differences in margins of victorys when she is spouting how he can't win anything? Seems the percentage of these states who like HER over HIM is MUCH smaller that the other way around.

    If were reversed she would tatto it on her own forehead.

    Won't debate because he really sucks at them. Take away the teleprompter and the prepared speech and he is nothing. He may inspire but he can't deliver. He lacks the ability to think on his feet. Hillary is very good at debates because she knows what she is talking about on any topic. Hillary has command of facts and figures, nobody knows this more then Obama. If he is the nominee, he will have to debate McCain, he sure could use the practice. I don't trust him at all.

    The Democrats don't deserve the White House if they can't control the infighting.

    Looks like a banner Republican four years will soon start. Get ready for your loved ones to pack up for Afghanistan, Iraq, and God knows where.

    Heil McCain the Insane.

    Quit! You are not electable. The American People don't care for those who find our country with many flaws, attends a "church" which appears to me to preach hate, besides being very new to Washington and wishing to change same? How many times have we heard that one. The American people need jobs and dollars. You can keep the change! You are not getting any of our votes! Hillary in 08!

  23. Insane McCain

    McCain is a little man with a huge ego and and an even bigger thirst for blood. Maybe this will be his vendication for five years of captivity.

    It doesn't look good Dems, because Hillary is a loser, and McCain is a blood-thirsty mangrel when it comes to war.
