    She would be a good Vice President. You Hillary Supporters still need to get on board. I'm confused on how you can support John McCain and Not Barack Obama. You were obviously supporting her for the wrong reasons.

    CNN is trash. It is deliberately using words to convey an impression that Obama is rude in dealing with several VP finalists. The fact is, Obama is just following the standard procedure of vetting possible candidates and notifying them of his decision in a polite way. But CNN has an agenda and this is how candidates are destroyed.

    if this is true, senator obama lost more votes than he could bear and we will see a Republican in the White House in January 2009!

    I would have run as an Independent if I were her. I am voting Republican – Obama and his wife are a danger to this country in my estimation.

    Here come the "I'm voting for McCain now!!!" comments...

    Obama and Hillary share 95% of their views.

    McCain and Bush share 95% of their views.
