    CNN:
    You dissapoint me. The Rev. Wright, POLITICS OF FEAR, instead of a picture of Senator Obama with the above headline.......Wonder if Wolf Blitzer, Lou Dobbs, and a few others can resign and head on over to Fox News; you all deserve each other. What gets me the most is that you somehow think this strategy is working for youe favorite candidates, "The Clintons". How much did your network get paid?

    BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA is a flake, is he nothing more than a preacher, that is all he wants to do this will go to the dnc, with howard dean yelling like a little baby (LOL) remember that fla. and mich. will come too play hillary won fla. out right by a big margin and BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA was stupid enough to take his name off the ballot in mich. that is why he and his campaign wants to split the votes what loosers.

    A win is a win! If Hillary-supporters are saying that Guam doesn't matter because Obama and Hillary split the delegates, they should revisit who is leading in pledged delegates! If Obama takes Indiana and North Carolina on May 6th, then that would mean three wins in a row and the superdelegates will trickle even faster to Obama.

    Obama in 08!

    To all the idiots who called other people idiots, it is 7 VOTES not 7 points. Votes are things that people actually go into a poll and decide which person to choose. The island of Guam actually has people, and it is 7 more PEOPLE(=VOTES) who go for Obama than Clinton.

    Congrats Obama. It's been a hard few weeks for Obama. Beaten by the press not for his policies but a series of personal attacks. He has owned up to his mistakes. Anyone of you out there who have not messed up at sometime raise your hands. Yes you hypocrites. It is time to move on. Both Democratic Candidates show great fighting spirit. but it is time to shut things down. Bye bye Hilary

    A win is a win. He gained 7 more popular votes. Is that was the Clintons are going by this week? Obama set up a HQ there to get his name and stances out there. He is fighting a name. That is really all she is. I had a few undecided people sitting by me at the JJ Dinner in Raleigh last night. They thought her actions were terrible. She opted to speak early and take all her supporters with her to an off site event. The event was across the street. The dinner is for the DEMOCRATS to celebrate and to converse with each other. Her campaign and namely, her, has lost sight of what she is trying to accomplish.

    It was 7 votes, not 7%. No bolstering allowed Obamamites. I had conceded Guam to Obama. This one would have been a big win for him 3 months ago. Things are going exactly as Hillary predicted, the more that people learn about Obama, the quicker he will fizzle out.

    A Little History on this Year Presidential Race.

    Hillary will lose out on two ends let me explain why thanks to Bill Clinton and the DNC. The democrat national committee knew Hillary was a polarizing figure to the American people and had lots of baggage that would be used against her in had she won the nomination for president and was their first choice and they the DNC had built this years election process around her.

    The DNC knew about Barack Obama when he gave his speech in 2004 and several high profile people including the Clinton's wanted Barack Obama to wait and run for president "8" eight years from now giving HRC a straight shot at wining the White house in 08 because they new the republicans would not have a chance in hell of taking the office again after a Bush administration.

    Now here is why Hillary will lose out on two ends, she could have had the chance to become the 1st women president of the United States Or 2nd The first women to become the 1st Vice President of the United States. Now she will lose out on both because she chose to run her campaign like a republican which could potentially damage the DNC.

    Obama / Governor Kathleen Sebelius
