    Stupid Obama! Way to divide the party even more. Hillary would have been the best VP.

    This is a perfect match. Why vote for that crazy republican anyways? He seriously said that he would have to get back to a reporter because he didn't know how many houses he owned. Can't wait for a crisis situation if that nut is elected in. Is he going to then say during a crisis: I am going to have to get back to you?

  6. LET'S KEEP IT REAL

    THIS IS GREAT! NOW WE CAN FOCUS ON OBAMA AND THE RACE PUTTING HILLARY AND "HER SUPPORTERS" (THOSE THAT INSIST ON MAKING THINGS HARDER FOR OBAMA AND THE DEM. PARTY AND PROBABLY WON'T VOTE FOR HIM ANYWAY). NOW THEY REALLY NEED TO UNDERSTAND THAT ANY FARTHER DEMOSTRATIONS OR PROTESTS WILL ONLY SERVE TO LABEL HILLARY AS A SPOILER. NOW EVERYTHING POINTS TO OBAMA AND THE UNDERSTANDING THAT EITHER YOU ARE TRULY WITH HIM OR AGAINST HIM AND CAN NO LONGER HIDE BEHIDE EXCUSES THAT MAKES ANY DIFFERENCES AT THIS POINT.

    EITHER YOU VOTE OBAMA OR YOU DON'T, BUT EITHER WAY GET SOMEWHERE AND SHUT UP ABOUT HILLARY SHE IS OUT THIS TIME AND IF YOU CONTINUE TO FORCE HER ON US YOU CAN BE SURE THAT IT WILL NEVER GO GOOD FOR HER IN THE FUTURE AND IF YOU CONTINUE TO INTERFER WITH NEGATIVITY AGAINST OBAMA AND GOD FORBID HE LOSSES HILLARY IS SURLY DONE.

    I SUGGEST "HILLARY SUPPORTERS ALL PITCH IN AND PAY HER DEBT, THE DEBT SHE GOT BECAUSE OF HER LOVE FOR YOU (SO SHE SAID" LOVE HER BACK IN MORE THAN WORDS SHOW THE MONEY! STOP NEEDING SO MUCH ATTENTION IT WILL ONLY TURN AGAINST YOU AS IT ALREADY HAS!

    and this is where the Republicans say – "but, but, but McCain was a POW" – and the Obama campaign responds, "it's over, you're done."

    alexa, you obviously are not a true democrat if you will vote against everything the democrats stand for.

    pathetic.

    I waffle back and forth between laughing so hard my side is aching, cussing and screaming at what has happened to the Democratic party, and wallowing in at least four more years of misery.

    Bush was “The Decider.” Obama has promoted himself as “Decider II.”

    Obviously, people haven’t learned from eight years of Bush’s incompetence. They apparently need at least four more years.

    Obama & Biden = Laurel & Hardy

  14. Biden a Solid Choice!

    Congrats to Obama. He has made a solid choice. Biden is a team
    player who will put the interests of "real" Americans first. I look forward
    to the next few months as the "rulers" of America frantically try to save
    "their" fascist state. True "freedom" for literally millions of Americans is only a few months away. Go America!!!

    Now let's see just how many people would rather choose the polar opposite of Hillary instead of the person who beat her running on the exact same platform. Health Care, Iraq, the economy, the two senators are very much the same breed when it comes to what they both think is best for the country, it's just too bad that so many people will choose to let their personal vendettas get in the way of ensuring that the change they hoped for from Hillary isn't accomplished by the man that beat her.

    It's still speculation.

    Anyone who is still a Hillary backer is a fool. You all are ruining the world. Get over it! She lost fair and square!

    What a poor choice. I am a devout Clinton supporter and how can you not select her as vp? She won the popular democratic vote. How can you not select who somone who won more democrats votes? This was a huge mistake. You now have lost the majority of Hillary supporters. What a mistake. Party divided. Go PUMA. Hillary 2012.

    the best interests of my family comes before all else, and I am thus obligated to vote for the one candidate I know will be the best President: Senator Hillary Clinton

    Good choice, Sen. Obama. Thank GOODNESS it wasn't Hillary. Not that we ever thought it would be. Now her 18 million bitter followers can go home to McBush... if that's what they want. If they truly want change and not spite, the Obama/Biden ticket welcomes them. If not, get lost!!

    Oh, Democrats– get a clue!
