The Democrats as always have the better music groups and entertainers in their conventions than the Republicans do.

Watch: John Legend sends a message

Clint Eastwood singing just doesn't cut it anymore!!

    They're right we have better music than the Republicans.

    However, even that is not going to make us vote for Obama.

    DEMOCRATS AGAINST OBAMA.......will unite and VOTE NO OBAMA.

  5. Ex-Republican for Obama

    This is the kind of thing a Republican Strategist has on his mind?

    I wonder why people such as myself are abandoning the GOP party. Gee, I really wonder? God save us all, the GOP is so shallow and out of touch with what matters in the world today.

    Obama-Biden '08!

    Is this another "oh poor us" pity party from the RNC?

    Great tunes at the DNC!! Even better...my satellte TV people are providing a live feed of the convention. No commercials, no so called expert opinions and no spin! Absolutely wonderful.

    Probably nothing to do with this post – but I've been watching CNN's coverage of this DNC convention and I have one question: "DO YOU HAVE NOTHING ELSE TO TALK ABOUT BUT HILLARY CLINTON???"

    Why on earth do you continue to dig into a dying story – there must be something else out there that you can talk about!

    Dems pretending they're one of "the folk." It's really tiresome. And the church stuff. I used to think they knew and valued the importance of separating church and state.

    Guess not.

    I think I understand. You know MSNBC is blatantly liberal, so you are forcing us to go watch them by posting this sort of crap.

    Sneaky!

    Not only do we have better music, we have better ideas & candidates!

  13. No longer a democrat

    Well it looks like if the black people have taken over the democratic convention and thats the way its going to be if Obama wins. The rappers will be taking over and our kids will be learning from them. What is American coming to? Its really becoming third world and we have the democrats to thank for that. Is this the way you want the most powerful to become? We had better do something and make sure this man is not elected in November so bring our country down.

    Come on people come to your senses and lets get back on track.

    I'm sick and tired of hearing about how democrats are divided and Hilary Clinton delegates not being satisfied.. This is the democratic convention, please cover it and stop the smear campaign against Barrack Obama

  15. An Independent Hillary

    Granted, Dem's do have all the cool music. Too bad most of the party guests aren't cool. You gotta love them Dems – not!

    Yeah, like it's the musical acts that helps one make the ultimate voting decision.

    The Democratic party also has alot more Diversity than the Republicans.

    Rollins is just a piece of trash pure and simple. Rich trash but still trash.

    And I'll try this again, all those pro-Republican posts with hispanic monikers (Chula, Humberto, Luis), you guys are all anglo cowards.

  19. Tex Ann gone independent

    Imagine what those groups cost and imagine who is paying for them. Imagine the big blow-out expensive parties all week, and who is paying for those. It somewhat offends me that the DNC is spending the kind of money they are on all the convention hoop-la. Are they there to party or are they there to develop a platform and select a nominee? I just don't see the need to spend that kind of money. This should be a no nonsense business deal. If the delegates went to party, then they shouldn't be delegates.

    I loved the John Legend song. The Republicans can say whatever they want but the Democrats know how to party.

    If musicians ran the country we would all be speaking German.

    the music is good but you do not want to get side tracked with the music remember the issues are what we want to hear. the other thing i think people fail to realize is that the bill clinton was also seen as helping the blacks as well as the blue collar whites during his run because of our econonmy obama should be viewed in the same way
    obama needs to point to specifics of what he is going to do and connect this with how this will help us the people

    TO ALL 'HILLARY SUPPORTERS'...IF YOU THINK YOU ARE GOING TO TORPEDO OBAMA'S ELECTION SO YOU CAN VOTE FOR HILLARY IN 2012...THINK AGAIN!!! WHO THE HECK DO YOU THINK IS GOING TO HELP YOU ALL VOTE HER INTO OFFICE??? DO YOU THINK ANYONE THAT SUPPORTS OBAMA IS GOING TO VOTE WITH YOU??? DO YOU SERIOUSLY THINK YOU WILL BE ABLE TO VOTE HER INTO THE WHITE HOUSE ALONE? IF YOU THINK THAT YOUR IGNORANCE IS SHOWING....NO OBAMA......NO HILLARY!!!!

  25. would you?

    who is doing the moderation on this site CNN? Nancy Pfotenhauer?
    geeez, you post all these stupid and hateful anti Obama post, but your afraid to post any comments about the 59 LOBBYIST and Bush men running McCain's camp? you keep putting up stories about Hill, but not a word about McCain's DRAFT? i wonder if those of you who are doing the moderation have Draft age kids...wonder, if Mccain gets in and you ship your sons and daughter off to war if then you will look back and think "may be we should have been more objective and honest about Mccain, may be we should have posted that comment when we had the chance..." dont regret in retrospect...take action NOW... CNN
