    This shows that Obama has substance compared to Hillary Clinton.

    He just needs to avoid stooping to her level with negative attacks on ads or campaigning coz i think that's what put people off in PA.

    Way to go Obama...I wish the rest of the superdelegates will follow suit and stop the unnecessary delay that is giving McCain a headstart. Democrats should not be divisive and vote for McCain if their preferred candidate does not win the nominations.but should rally behind whoever wins.

    That's because we've seen and heard much of it before, in prior races. And, we know there is no Santa Claus.

    Barack is a high quality individual. But if you've taken the time to read his books and listen to his speeches, it's hard to find any "there" there.

    This doesn't mean that the other senators have a lock on seniors though.

  12. WOMEN OF NEBRASKA FOR OBAMA

    BRAVO AUDRA!!!! You have been a bit hesitant, but you can see now that even in PA, Obama was a powerful force. Even in a state Hillary claimed as her own, Obama's strength of character, highly ethical stance and calmness in the face of unrelenting attack has been recognized by 45% of the voters!!!

    Didn't California move their pripary to an earlier date of Feb 5th? Along with some other states. Why was CA not penalized like MI and FL?

    I think the end might be near for Hillary. She did not win by a big enough margin in a state thats constituents were tailor made to the demographics that favor her. Exit polls from other primaries showed Clintons strengths, and she should have won by at least 20%. I think the superdelegates have seen and heard enough from the Clintons to see that they are just damaging the democratic party and building up the Republicans campaign. If they want to win the election they have to end it soon.

    Superdelegates need to come out and stop this nastiness from the
    Clinton campaign, which will in the end achieve just one thing: damage the likely democratic nominee to the extent that he will become non-electable. All thanks to the Clintons' mentality that the end justifies the means.
    It is time for superdelegates to come out and support Obama.

    The fact that Hillary raised a couple of dollars just made me reach into my purse just a little bit deeper. I've given a small donation to Obama already but I realize that he cannot be out done, so I'm giving a little bit more.

  22. SO IT BEGINS...

    IT SHOULD BE APPARENT TO ALL OF US AND THE TALKING HEADS THAT IN THE END IT IS STILL THE SUPERDELEGATES DECISION AND NOT THE CANDIDATES. IF LEFT UP TO HILLARY SHE WILL BE TAAPING ON THE JUDGES SHOULDER AT OBAMA'S SWEARING IN.
