(CNN) – CNN has learned from a Democratic leadership aide that Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has asked Hillary Clinton to deliver the party’s weekly radio address this weekend in advance of the Republican convention.

Democrats from the House, Senate, national party and the Obama campaign rotate delivering the speech each week. This weekend is the Senate’s turn.

Clinton is expected to repeat many of the themes of her speech on Tuesday, highlighting party unity, said the Democratic leadership aide.

    I don't think that a guy that voted present over 130 as a state senator has the judgment and leadership to be the President.

    Don’t matter how Mr. Obama is playing out on the stage, I don’t trust hem,
    Good at talking, he is only a salesman, not a doer.
    Mr. John McCain is the leader of American with the values which stand for honor, equality and respect to all.
    I cannot believe what Obama wife's comment on "I finally love being an American". My God, if that is how she feels about America, she should go to China or another country to live and she will know what it means to be an American.
    Mr. John McCain is not Mr. Bush; he is the Maverick of true American. We can count on hem.

    INSANITY: Definition;
    Trying the same thing over and over again and expecting a different Result.

    A VOTE FOR McCAIN WOULD BE INSANE.
    It would be more of the same

    After Hilary's speech last evening, I thought how much better her gifts would serve the world if she were to be Obama's Secretary of State rather than Vice President.

    It is ridiculous what the republican had done to this country in eight years. Coming from economics surplus from Bill Clinton to deep debt to China. This republican government is handing their white plate over to China and begging to barrow money from them. This has never been the US. Most of the time it always been the other way around. We are the one that used to lend money to the world.
    These republican think that they have not done enough to the country and try to scare you away from a chance to take our country back. No way, No how, No McCain.

    What to do. If we elect Barack then Hillary wil never be president. Hmmm.....but a Democrat will be better than a Republicant. What to do, what to do. It's a toss up between the old stubborn guy versus the new clueless guy. Maybe I'll just stay home and wait for Her to run in 4 years.

    Obama really needs to put Hillary in a cabinet post. She has so much knowledge and so many people that care about her. Both her and Bill put their feelings aside and endorsed him and for that he should be grateful. They threw a lot of votes his way and that may be the key to his winning. Michelle could have smiled more last night and tonight when the Clintons were speaking. Her dislike really showed. She needs to get a thicker skin (not on her butt...enough there now) & treat the Clintons with respect.

    You think Hillary is being "nice" to retire her debt?!? Where have you been, sonny? Now she and Bill have done their thing.

    Obama wants it to be the Clintons' responsibility to get him elected and unite the party.

    In all my life I have never heard of a would-be president expecting someone else to do his job for him!

    And the Obama followers seem to think this is okay. What is WRONG with them? And what is wrong with Obama?

    Tomorrow will be over in 24 hours, folks.

    Then the real world comes back into focus.

    Biden is a nice guy, but here we have the Peter Principle playing itself out on the national stage.

    Enough with the poor boy from Scranton line. What are these two going to do for America?

    Suffering is not an accomplishment and hope is not a strategy.

    I am a christian Republican woman and I care most about family values. I care about the many American women who were abused and abandoned by their husbands. When John McCain was in captivity his first wife waited patiently for him and never went to bed without worries and saying prayer for him. In the interim, the emotional stress caused her a crippling automobile accident. When he came back, he started having a series of affairs with other women while his wife was still struggling to pay the medical bills with the help of her friends. Then later he abandoned his wife of 14 years and his children so he could quickly marry a rich woman who is 18 years younger than him.
    I value marriage and I will never vote for such an adulterer. McCain ought to be ashamed of himself! and those who really care about the daily challeges we face as women will never vote for this man. I don't want McCain to win so I will vote for Obama, NO McCain!!!
