    Didn't the pundits say she will win in Pueto Rico with a wide margin? So, why did her win all of a sudden become so much news and why is there so much excitement as if it was a suprise and not predicted?

    Unfortunately the results in PR mean nothing. These Americans have no say in the general election. Hillary tring to claim that this win means something is nothing more than a hollow claim

    But she only got only 20% of the turnout she had expected. So this is no real victory for her.

    Puerto Rico boosts Hillary's self-esteem.
    Hope she will remember that!

    Clinton moves way ahead in the popular vote now and should be the nominee. What many are not considering is that the vast majority of states Obama has won are states that the Democrats will not win in the general election: Mississippi, Georgia, Alabama, Iowa, Louisiana, Kansas, Oklahoma, And, the Bradley phenomenon kicks in in the general election, not the primaries which means his polls are way lower than those published. HE CANNOT WIN!!!

    I hate the way Obama has been shoved down Americans throats.I think more people would have voted for Clinton if the media has for months stated over and over how Obama is the choice to vote for.I am a Democrat that will either not vote this fall or vote Republican.This whole process has been one sided. If someone had held up a sign that said.."shine my shoes"the backlash would have been something else.but not much was said about the "iron my shirt " deal.Shame on the media...!!!!

    they dont count in the GE anyway..but guess what happens on tuesday?..a nice double win for Obama to end the primaries..hahaha.

    There is a reason why Obama has done so well in the north mid western states...and thats because there is little racial tension in that region of the country. Those people are much more sensible, thank god!

    I read the topic of Obama tagging along to Mt. Rushmore. Does he ever have an idea of his own?

    "With 85 percent of the precincts reporting, the Puerto Rico vote count showed Clinton with 219,536 votes, or 68 percent, to Obama's 102,304, or 32 percent." This is another landslide! Superdelegates must wake up to the reality. Hillary resoundingly got the popular vote, the will of voters, the will of people! We are democratic Democratic Party; we cannot overturn the will of voters, the will of people! (like Pelosi et al. have been saying all along)
    Even Karl Rove's own Electoral College analysis shows Hillary clearly beats McCain while Obama LOSES to McCain!
    What's the point of the historic one, if he LOSES?
    Hillary will be the true meaningful historic one, because she will WIN!
    Nominate Hillary.

    Yes We Will!
    Hillary '08
