    Obama didn't steal delegates from Michigan. Michigan screwed up by moving their date. DUH!! At least the votes count now or would you rather they didn't. Get over it.

    Charlotte,
    Please tell us how ignorant, blind, and uncaring about her country Hillary is when she endorses Barack Obama. If she is so smart and the best person for president, why can't she see what a "flake" Obama is?

    The new Genographic shows taht human beings are one and have even traced the genetic history of some white people to Africa and explained it is migration in many thousand years that made people to scatter all over the world.
    Obama's victory may be a closing of the circle. A Black man in WhiteHouse?It is mind boggling. May America be able to learn about the undercurrents of what is going on.

    This si hoping he won't be knocked off like Kennedy,Martin Luther King Jnr and others.We should all shout in the world it is anew Dawn!

    I am truly ashamed of my country and the DNC of which I am no longer a member. This will be the third time they (party elites) selected a loser. Remember when "every vote counts" was the party motto. It went down the toilet this time around. Votes don't count unless you vote the way the DNC wants you to.
    Howard Dean – a loser himself – created this mess and nows wants party unity to help him look good. Not a snow balls chance in____.
    Unity will come in Nov. when McCain wins!!!

    CONGRATULATIONS TO AMERICA. For the first time in my adult lifetime I can truly feel patriotic. All the times I have been made to feel less a human being or American. All the times during the civil rights movements when I was one of four black kids in an all white school being spit on, beat on and other shameful things. Michele, I know what you meant. And thank you for saying those words because for those who were on the other side of racism, they will never know what you meant. NOW our children along with others of color know that this country has to accept people of any color to one day be the President of the United States. THIS COUNTRY does not belong to one people. Black, white, red, yellow we are all one. Thanks to you and Senator Obama.

    I am glad he beat her because she really thought she would get it. I guess she could at the convention if the super delegates changed their mind.
    Most of all, I hope he doesn't think he has to pick her for VP. I think she would hurt him after he took office.
    She would do anything to make her look good, if that is possible.
    I am a registered republican woman 69 years old and she didn't fool me.

    Might I suggest that instead of changing the total Superdelegate count on your screen, you let us know who the superdelegate is that has made a decesion.....

    Hello Mr. President. Please, please, please, make good decisions during the remainder of the campaign and then in the White House.

    Notice how it says Obama will "claim" the nomination because he's not actually winning it. No one got the needed number of pledged delegates. Don't forget, the super delegates votes don't REALLY get cast until the convention, if they would be needed.

    I think it is very bad of the news networks to keep anouncing that Obama is allready the nominee before the polls have closed. And you say that you all are not biased??????

    remember JFK was a one term senator with no expierence, and he became a great president, so all you hillary supporters wake up and smell the coffee or are you so vengeful that you will cut off your nose to spite your face grow-up .......... it time to let go of that fear and walk into the future
