    All of the die-hard Hillary supporters that are switching to voting republican are pure fanboys/fangirls. Im willing to bet that everyone doing that has no idea what Hillary's policies were. Its pure stupidity to call yourself a democrat then vote republican because your choice did not win. Its really immature. Im moving to Canada or England if McCain wins, because it will reinforce the growing feeling that most of America is retarded.

    WooHoo!!! I've been a Biden admirer since Iived in DE for a few years in the late 80's. He's always seemed like a regular guy you could watch a ball game with over a few beers, but he's a pit bull when it comes down to the dogfight. I've been saying Obama/Biden for months now!!!!

    BIDEN voted for BANKRUPTCY REFORM. He's a corporatist dirt-bag. And Obama chastised McCain for voting for the same bill. Hypocrisy much?

    Good. Biden is the best VP choice out there. This ticket beats Kerry/Edwards and Gore/Liberman. It will obviously beat Mccain/Romney. America cannot afford to let Mccain win.

    Obama/Biden 08! Thank the lord!

    You thought the recent Russo-Georgia conflict was bad, wait till Denver! Dang, might as well give the south and west back to France and Mexico, cause Biden can't carry a feather for us.
