    The media is so desperate of news that they are now manufecturing their own news out of frustration!

    I just signed up on the McCain web site - Democrats for McCain.

    I supported Hillary Clinton throughout the primaries. There is absolutely no chance I will consider BO now.

    It's some comfort that thousands more will do the same.

    Say goodbye to my Dem vote. What a sorry sorry choice out of all the candidates.

    Well nothing against Joe Biden but the wrong person is at the top of the ticket. Won't vote for Obama-already had an OJT president. He's windy, boring and terribly stuck on himself. Last thing I want to hear or see is OBee reading a long speech and /or stamering through questions in a debate. Oh yes, I'm a Hillary supporter. Go McCain!

    I really think Hillary would have guaranteed the nomination. I just wouldn't want Biden for my President.

    Where is the integrity of CNN to allow Obama to let his supporters know before everyone else?

    And now Obama has lost in November. I will vote for McCain. He could have done the right thing and chose Hillary but his ego and arrogance rule his self centered world. No he can't.. No he won't in November. Back to being an Independent for me.

    NOBAMA!

    Probably a good choice. Biden's foreign policy experience could give Obama a needed boost.

    Is this the change and new school, a.k.a., no Washington insiders, that Obama promised us? While I like Biden, he has been on the D.C. scene for decades and voted for the war in Iraq. Just another example of Obama's flip-flop personality. Oh well, kiss the election goodbye, Senators Obama and Biden.

    While I like Biden, he's not Hillary Clinton and so many of us are left with no choice now, but to vote for McCain. Kennedy and Kerry began this story long, long ago priming Obama and using their influence to turn him into the Democratic Nominee, all the while betraying Hillary Clinton along the way. In the end they lost so many of us...

    This was the best choice, this guy Biden is an attack dog, and nothings gets by him.
    The real fight begins today..
