    Don't take Hillary up in a plane with you. If you do make sure you have a parachute. She'll throw you off the plane. Remember what she said about June–well it's July.

    Hillary, Wicked Witch of the West: "I can't wait forever to get those shoes."

    Check and double check before you get on the plane Hill make sure Obama not trying to do away with his clinton problem. He's set up so everyone knows there are "mechanical problems" going on. Okay Okay this comment was not necessary but I felt like saying it with everyone blaming Hillary for his plane problems when she was nowhere around.

    Please Senator Obama do not put Hillary Clinton on
    your ticket. You do not need her and sorry supporters.
    Terry Mac is a slick oil salesman. These people
    only want to use you to get Hillary near the White House.

    I am glad for the unity. BUT, She still does not seem like she is 100% campaigning for Obama. She seems like she still is hoping it will be her, because she thinks she deserves it. I DO NOT. She lost, Obama Won. Further, I will not pay one cent for her campaign.

    Doesn't matter what Hillary does Obama doesn't get my vote. I'm writing in Hillary. All the Obama supporters can say I'm angry and pouting over the Hillary loss or that I'm really a Republican.

    No ... this is a dedicated Democrat who will not vote for someone who doesn't have any experience, doesn't have a voting record of substance, supports a radical nut job for 20 years and doesn't see anything wrong with it, changes his mind constantly and apologizes all the time ... The list goes on and on.

    I see Obama is voting with George Bush (but Hillary is not) on the terrorist surveillance bill-Does this mean we get 4 more years of Bush no matter who we vote for?

  14. division by race baiting ruined Obama


    THE LADY…. and the tramp…

    At least in all fairness… after what they did to YOU, Hill, we can NOW exercise OUR right to (filthy, crude, " free" speech ) and all say : ANYbody but this bro and his (ugly) ho… right back at them.

    What goes around comes around. Isn't the new democratic party lots of fun?

    Don't worry we will remember for you, in Nov… we do not need to play into the game. Obama trashed the rules of civility and party unity.

    The Republican bland is damaged. But the Democratic Party and the MSM has trashed America and this current administration so much that theie Party will end up in the state of decadence with full of people with nostalgia for days past. They are pushing their kind of heroism on people (forget about the ordinary Americans).

    One thing Americans are known for is “generous with advice” this is especially true with this particular Democratic Party this year. They’ve got their king and now they really think they’ve got good advices for everyone. While they want to trash one of the best experienced and knowledgeable and tested and connected to people candidates they have in the Democratic Party. Americans will decide who their real hero is.

    The Democrats just wants to bring back ghosts from the past and make us all relive the past glory. With Hillary there is hope. Their selected king may give hope to some but he is not ready. Is he ready?

  18. Don't capitulate to hate

    Sorry Hillary... but we are looking over Obama's big ego and right through his hype and refusing to be bullied, threatened, trashed, forced, insulted and debased into voting for the lesser candidate.

    Had Obama and his followers NOT played so dirty, crude and foul... we would already be on board.

    But principles trump party any day.

    So even For YOU, Hillary... we won't vote for Obama. If you are VP, I would reluctantly do so... out of respect and admiration for YOU. No other way will I capitulate to this hijacking of a nomination by the LEAST qualified candidate- EVEN if he is a democrat.

    Has anyone informed the Pilot and Co-Pilot of this? Mrs. Clinton will want to be in charge, or at least appear she is in command (of anything: airplanes, American Military, Girl Scouts, Bill, anything!)

    Blah, Blah, Blah. People will vote however they vote. I'm through talking about candidates that didn't win the nomination unless we're talking about VP or cabinet positions.

    I don't care who gets on the plane as long as it isn't reverend Wright.

    I want to get to the debates so the American public can begin to engage on THE ISSUEs and WHAT"s AT STAKE in this election.

    Tickers about NOTHING are annoying.

    You know what, Gary, you get a life. I don't see much difference in Obama and Bush personality wise. They are both arrogrant and get what they want by hook or crook.
    If Hillary can't run, I'll vote for Nader.

  24. shame on the DNC

    Why bow down to the hateful divisive tactics that Obama used to trash HRC?

    Why reward that disrespectful, hateful and crude strategy with a vote.

    Say NO to sexism, racism, ageism and any other nasty personal denigrating and debasing tactics used to secure nominations.

    Obama went too far with his race-baiting... he stepped over the line from civility to unacceptable behavior from a democrat towards fellow democrats.

    Why are so many people pointing fingers at the SUPPORTERS of the candidates on a blog and using thaty as the reason for the reason why they are voting in a certain way?

    seriously, you are going to give that much power to someone on a blog you never even met?

    think for yourselves – don't be a pawn by "the back forth bickering" and what the media feeds you.
