A few months ago, the only people who talked about the possibility of a contested Democratic nomination fight extending all the way to the party's convention in August were hopeful pundits, desperate Republicans, and Chicken Little Democrats.
Most of the rational world looked at the political landscape and foresaw a smooth ride to victory for Democrats. They had, after all, the wind at their backs from the 2006 midterm elections, and a Republican President with record-high disapproval ratings thanks to an unpopular war and a tanking economy. The dueling landmark candidacies of Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama seemed an embarrassment of riches, fueling record-breaking fundraising and bringing a flood of new voters to the party.

No country for old men!
Both Fox and CNN had commentators this AM who said that Hillary cannot get the nomination because of the Party's fear of disenfranchising black and young voters...so no matter what else happens, Obama is your nominee....just one more reason why McCain will be elected.
Go to our website Vietnam Veterans against Mccain to see why this guy shouldn't be considered for President.
No TIME, the democratic party could nominate Elmer Fudd and McBush would still be a loser.
Why did you vote down the GI Bill John? Don't send us to war and then forget about us.
Not a hero in my book!
NOT IF HILLARY'S THE NOMINEE. GET USE TO IT, OBAMA HAS TO GO,
Keep fighting Dems!!!
McCain is going to pull off an underdog win in November, because the Democratic Party is imploding from those two. While they continuous try to prove why the other can't be President, McCain will surf the wave of indecisiveness to victory in '08
Here is the official results from PA Secretary of State
Clinton 54.3% 1,237,696
Obama 45.7% 1,043,174
Spread 8.6% 194,522
The question is why is the media reporting double-digit?
But thanks to the media,it has become a three ring Circus and selling alot of news papers and Ad space.Well done.Helping the economy is such a noble cause while you screw the electorate.
Time to count MI and FL Howard Dean and Nancy Pelosi! AND then resign, you have both shown very unamerican views. You both are a blight on the Democratic party,
WE CAN ONLY THANK HILLARY FOR DESTROYING THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY.
Stop The Drama, Drop Out Obama!
I agree. Mc Cain benefits a lot from the Democratic race and he will win in November...
I think McCain being declared the real winner is going a bit too far. However, Mrs. Clinton has clearly demonstrated that she will go nuclear to win the nomination, no matter the consequences for the party.
If McCane wins the general election, Hillary Clinton should go to jail for it.
TIDE IS TURNING FOR HILLARY... TO WASH HER AWAY
PA. Made a big, big mistake. The Republicans are waiting for
the Clinton's Past. Hannity and Limbaughs tactics are working.
Hannity is obsessed with trashing Obama. EVERYNIGHT!
Common sense tells us that the Republicans want Hillary to
win. Google the Clintons. You will see clearly why they want
Hillary to win. The Clinton's past tells it ALL.
Come on people!! There isnt a chance in hell that Mccain wins the general. Just think what will happen when Mccain actually is thrust into the spotlight after Hillary finally gives up. Mccain will look horrible debating Obama. Dem party will unite and destroy Mccain.
Also, CNN and other networks report double digits to highten drama. Networks are a bussiness and they have to push their product. Hightening the drama gets better ratings.
Maybe this one will be posted unlike my past posts. CNN cant handle people talking about their organization.
OBAMA IS STILL IN THE LEAD BY MORE THAN 100 DELEGATES.....WHY DOES HE NEED TO GO? WHEN 6/3 COMES AROUND AND HE IS STILL IN THE LEAD, WILL ALL OF YOU HRC FANS FINALLY TELL HER ITS TIME TO STOP DIVIDING OUR PARTY?I GUESS YOU ALL HAVE BOUGHT INTO HILLARY'S SENSE OF ENTITLEMENT TO THE NOMINATION. THE NY TIMES HAD HER PEGGED DEAD TO RIGHT THIS MORNING. SHE KEEPS CLAIMING SHE CAN WHEN THE BIG STATES, WELL FLORIDA AND OHIO WILL NEOT ELECT A DEMOCRAT IN THE GENERAL ELECTION NO MATTER WHICH ONE OF THEM WINS. AND FOR HER TO KEEP CLAMING MICHIGAN AS A WIN IS RIDICULOUS. SHE WAS THE ONLY VIABLE DEM ON THE TICKET, AND SHE STILL ONLY GOT 55% OF THE VOTE.!!! GET REAL!!
I remember a comedian who said the democrats should be congratulated because they found the only man on planet earth that could not beat George Bush in 2004
Even Kerry could beat McCain in2008"
So why are you sky falling democrats saying Obama can't win????????????????????????????
This way of thinking is currently popular but, in my opinion, is totally wrong. The reality is that the Republicans have nominated an old, ethically-challenged candidate (remember the savings and loan scandal?) who wants to continue the failed policies of a president with a 28% approval rating; even worse, he has stated that he is willing to keep troops in Iraq for another 100 years. The economy is in shambles, and many people are worried about their jobs. Once the Democrats have chosen a candidate, the majority of the American people will wake up and realize that change is long overdue, and it won't matter if the candidate is Obama or Clinton – anyone will look good by comparison! At least I hope so.....
Hillary said she will do anything to win and that a bad sign. She has lied, negative ads against her own party and a trial of debt. Anything is'nt good enough what ever happen to having standards.
Obama gets my vote!
Doesn't matter which of either Hillary or Obama wins, they both lose in Nov. Too many of you emotional Dems will have your feelings hurt from being disenfranchised and you'll sit this one out.
McCain 54-46 in Nov.
If Clinton wins the nod, McCain WILL get my vote. I refuse to vote for a criminal, a liar, a conspirator and a thief, democrat or not.
