    LOLOLOL Clinton earned her 18 million votes, but Obama did not earn his 18 million voteS?!?!? THAT IS HILARIOUS.

    I really am not surprised at the number of people pouting because their candidate lost... after all everyone in america is all about themselves.

    Good luck to those who support John McCain because if you've been tracking his answers to questions at his town hall meetings you don't need to worry about the economy or social security. The reason being, John McCain doesn't know anything about either. Look it up for yourself and read his answer to the social security question.

    Say no now... or watch the democratic party devolve into a band of thugs.

    Don't accept what happened in this primary... it was disgraceful, disgusting, disrespectful, and UNdemocratic.

    Say no to a future of winning by strong-arming, threats, force, race-baiting, insults and demeaning your fellow democratic opponent and her followers.

    The price to pay is democracy itself if you capitulate NOW to the hijacking of this primary by Obama and his thugs.

    Here we go again with "hateful" and "sexism" etc...

    Will it never end? Obama was the one praising clinton while her and Bill threw round after round of mud on him. And once again... sexism probably helped her more than it hurt.. because you know that she got millions upon millions of votes just for the fact that she was a woman.. just like Barack got millions of votes for the fact that he was black. The reality is... sexism.. and racism.. ended up helping both and vice/versa hurting both. Sexism helped Clinton get millions of votes from women and those who stand up for women. And racism helped Barack in places with minority populations, and hurt him in places like Tenn and Kentucky where the voters actually admitted to the fact that they would never vote for a black man. So stop your whining and blind lashing out and start thinking realistically.

    And once again.. Hillary didn't win most of the votes... Barack had more popular votes, and most importantly.. the most PLEDGED delegates.. more than half.. so stop with the "selected, not elected" garbage.. you're just making yourself look stupid. Hillary would have needed a lot more superdelegate votes than Obama to clinch the nomination.

    Why is this big news? They have, and always will have, differences, but they're on the same "plane". Get over it, Clinton supporters. She's already given you your orders unless you weren't really her supporter, but just a faker.

    Also.... you people need to chill out on both the debate comments and the VP comments. There's plenty of time to pick a VP, and I'm glad that Obama is taking the time to make a good decision. As for people complaining why he hasn't debated McCain.. every election the debates start after the summer. This is perfectly normal. Don't worry McCain people... Obama will wipe the floor with McCain.. just like Ron Paul did... look up the republican primary debates and you'll see how Ron Paul schooled him. I'm by far not a Ron Paul supporter.. but compared to McCain... Paul is a genius, and the true straight talk express.

    Why Jackson need to apologize?
    He need to speak the truth.
    You can’t hide the truth forever.
    You can’t keep a good man down.
    The truth will eventually come out.

    Will we see traitors from the Obama side?

    Is Obama traitor hero or heel?

    Good point Mr. Oseki (Norway)...How many on-line Obama bashers are actually Republicans? The immaturity of some of the comments are astounding...

    Please Senator Obama do not put Hillary Clinton
    on your ticket. You do not need her or those sorry supporters.
    Terry Mac is a slick oil salesman. These people are
    not to be trusted.

  19. PUMA HATER

    Does anyone get the idea that PUMAS have never met a book they knew how to read? Or a political issue they understood? Look up the word "ignorant" in the dictionary and you're sure to read "see also: PUMA"

    Please vote for Mccain you pathetic excuses for, ah, Democrats. And in lingo I'm sure you can understand, "don't come back now, ya hear."

    Obama supporters... keep threatening Hillary with blame for the mess that Obama created.

    That will move even MORE democrats over to the Republicans, or third party candidates.

    IF obama loses... it will be his own fault for playing the race card, his campaigns fault for disrespecting the party's other candidate, the Obama supporters fault for their crude, filthy comments denigrating HRC and demeaning her supporters, and the DNC for capitulating and installing a weak, unqualified, inexperienced nominee.

    The only winner out of all this is HRC. She is the only one who can legitimately HOLD her head high.

    Hopefully to talk about the VP job. If she is on the ticket, democrats could have the White House for 16 years

  22. sorelosersgohome

    Yeah, right Clinton soreheads. Vote for McBushbot into the whitehouse so you can pay $7 or $8 for a gallon of gas, have a never-ending war that costs US tax payers a fortune and worse of all 4 more years of Satan incarnate-Cheney using tax payer's money and our troops to set up business in Iran.

    This isn't a popularity contest. This is about the future of this nation. Its obvious you all don't care anything about this country at all.

    If McCain wins – you deserve what you get.... and I suppose you will be whining about that too. You guys are sadly pathetic.

    She should spend more time with him. His campaign spends so much time apologizing and explaining what it means when it speaks , she may have to step into the nomination!

    The vitriol of Hillary supporters who say they'll "never vote for Obama," just goes to show why it wasn't good for the Democratic primary season to go on as long as it did.

    Despite the claims of the Hillary camp that people were "excited" and that it would benefit Democrats in the fall to have her continue "until every vote is counted," what we're seeing is weakened Democratic prospects due to a festering allegiance to a candidacy that was realistically out of the running by the end of February. Had HRC backed out then, we wouldn't be seeing this poisonous fanaticism now.

    Hey Haters for Obama... have you STILL not learned that hating fellow democrats will not win their hearts or their votes?

    Obama supporters... You keep threatening Hillary with blame for the mess that Obama created. How silly is that?

    That will move even MORE democrats over to the Republicans, or third party candidates.

    IF Obama loses... it will be his own fault for playing the race card, his campaign's fault for disrespecting the party's other candidate, the hateful Obama supporter's fault for their crude, filthy comments denigrating HRC and demeaning her supporters, and the DNC for capitulating and installing a weak, unqualified, inexperienced nominee.

    Black may be the in color, but it is NOT a qualification for office of the presidency.

    The only winner out of all this is HRC. She is the only one who can legitimately HOLD her head high. She was the REAL DEAL for all Americans... not some trumped up Oprah media production.
