    I am very sorry to hear the congresswomen death or any death for that matter. I wonder though If Obama shunning her and other black politicians who supported Clinton gave her the aneurysm.

    Man, that's a serious "WOOPS" on CNN's part. Hopefully she pulls through.

    There's no need for negativity on this thread. Tubbs Jones IS known for her ability to defend her constituents, which is her job. Disliking her for doing her job is as logical as writing in a third term vote for President Bush.

    This is why I love America. In a time of mourning people forget about politics and just see the human being. It is good to see.

    All my condolences to her family and may she rest in peace in a better world.

    What a terrible loss for our country. May her soul rest in peace. May her family be blessed and comforted at this time of sorrow. It does not matter what the political views are, a very fine woman has left us. God bless her life.

  13. Dems are stuck in the fix they rigged

    This is sad news.

    My heart goes out to her and her family.

    Watch the HRC haters will say something vulgar about this sadness.

    She's not died!!! She's still in critical condition and I hope she pulls through. She needs to be alive to see Obama get elected and the glory of our nation restored.

    I'm very sorry Stephanie Tubbs Jones is in critical condition. My prayers go out to her and her family.

    Shame on CNN. Journalists are supposed to CONFIRM facts before they report them. A phone call to the hospital is too much to expect from the "Best Political News Team" I guess.

  22. No haters

    Please, for this great woman, stay respectful on this thread.

    No time to make anti-HRC comments.
