    The super delegates better wake up, Senator Clinton has the popular vote. If the DNC supports the popular-vote loser this will ensure a losing outcome in November.

    America will not support poor judgment plus no experience! Senator Obama’s race will be a repeat of the 1972 election.

    A great victory for USA and a great win for Hillary

    There is no doubt in my mind that Hillary should be the candidate this fall,

    Obomus is a loser., Hillary is a winner.

    Let's go with a winner

    Angry Clinton supporters tell party leaders: 'Let's go McCain!'
    Is this not a failure?!

    Why would any person, in their right mind, suddenly be PRO WAR and ANTI HEALTHCARE?

    4 years of more Bush is NOT the right thing for the Democratic Party.
    Should we not stand for our believes, against the Republicans, regardless of the outcome in this nomination?

    I hope that clinton will win the nomination. At the same time, Obama is also a deserved candidate. But the advantage of Clinton become a nominee, two presidents can rule the country with good prior knowledge which will reduce world terrorism.

    Hillary is beating Obama in Puerto Rico with a huge margin! If Obama is claiming he is the front runner, why he still at this point in the race, cannot close the deal? If he's that good, shouldn't he be winning Puerto Rico today? HILLARY '08

    "Clintithmatic": The math by which you declare victory in the popular vote by counting elections where you were the only candidate on the ballot, count primaries where there will be no presidential election, and do not count caucus states that do not release popular votes where a majority went to your opponent. Ahhh, if only I could get the IRS adopt this math with my tax return.

    The people who are most affected by the poor economy are saying that Hillary is the best candidate to win the white house and can turn around the economy to a better future. Rich people are not backing her because they are scared that they will loose their wealth if Hillary wins.

    Don't quit Hillary. A lot of real people love you. If you don't win that is because the media is bias and sexist but definitely not racist.

    Hillary 08!!!

    Who cares? PR shouldn't vote in the primaries since they don't vote in the general. Makes no sense.
