    I am a woman but I don't understand women ask for equal rights with men, and wants to be given special treatment in politics. If we cry equal rights, then we should be treated the same way men politicians are treated instead of crying sexism to every word. The republicans whine about unnecessary issues all the time for their political gain by telling lies.

    Taking or requesting “pork barrel” monies for state improvements, is neither illegal or immoral.

    Lying about taking and requesting the monies is immoral. If you are a Republican, you will have to Google "immoral" for the definition.

    Now everyone stated during the primaries that the "fight" with Hillary was nothing compared to what the republicans were going to do to Obama. Why on earth did his intelligent man not get ready for this? This is what the American people like, it seems....smut and lies

    I am very scared of the please Bill!

    Wow, how quickly the "chosen one" has gotten desperate. Should have picked Hillary from the getgo, huh?

    It is a very good thing that Bill & Hillary Clinton are, as usual, campaigning onf the behalf of Loyal Americans. The Democratic Party, my party, are fighting an uphill battle for the 2008 election. I am firmly convinced that Hillary Clinton should be running for the Office of the President of the United States. Short of that Obama should have picked her for the V.P. slot.

    I am so tired of hearing the supporters of the Republican Party bad mouthing the Democrats and trying to make the clear, intelligent liberal position a 4 letter word! Wake up conservative americans and see how your administration has defiled the American name here and abroad.

    Well, I guess if being a rampant sexist won't get the "chosen one" into office, he might as well cozy up to the one man with a clue on how to beat those Republicans, huh?

    The problem is that so many voters, including Democrats, just don't like Obama personally. His overwhelming arrogance and treatment of Hillary Clinton was pretty appalling.

    Bill will campaign for him because he will campaign for the Democratic ticket. Period.

    When McCain and his gang go after Obama over Palin, everyone remembers his obnoxious behavior and unearned sense of entitlement.

    They don't know if they really like Palin, but Obama is UNlikable that it's real easy to vote against him and to believe the accusations of sexism that McCain and Co. are dining out on these days.

    Now you are talking! Bring out the BIG guns!!

    Obama has always needed Clinton and only now he realizes what an idiot he was for trying to cast them out of the party. Bill Clinton is THE democrat. He is the only one that has slayed the great republican war machine twice and lived to tell the tale!

    I am still not voting for Obama after what he did to Hillary but good to see he finally recognizes he did wrong.

    Let's just hope more progressive, intelligent people who care about issues show up at the polls on November 4th. Those who care about our place and image in the global community. Hopefully Bill Clinton will remind the voters of this country what we once were and where we could be again, with a great leader like Barack Obama.

    I realize that Hillary and Bill, as fellow democrats, must campaign for Obama but I still find it difficult to accept. Hillary never lost she was stabbed in the back by the DNC.

    I hope voters understand this and take Hillary and Bills support with a grain of salt.

    Obama is to good for this country. We don't deserve him. Why don't we just allow the country to continue on its downward spiral for another 4 years and by then the rebublicans(idiots) would have awaken out of the nightmare that they put themselves and thecountry in.

    Clinton is a cuckhold. Obama is a Muslim with a Communist father who would not marry his mother. Obama is a bastard is the strictest sense of the word. A rich, elitist one but one no less. I hope they get drunk and do each other in. Neither is a patch on McCain's butt.
    Let's see a Commie daddy or a dad and grandfather admirals in the US Navy. Better choice? You libs are blockheads.

    Why cant the Obama camp change their campaign message from CHANGE to "DONT BE FOOLED" AND CALL THE MAVERICK THE MAGICIAN because John McCain (THE MAGICIAN) is blowing smoke up everyone's you know what!!!

    After all the negative campaigning against Hillary, now she and Bill are needed to haul in the votes.

    Hillary should have been the nominee and now the Democratic party is beginning to see the error of the ways.

    I also see Biden bowing out of the VP nomination and Hillary stepping in the the position.

    Today, he made comments that Hillary may have been a better pick.

    If he bows out, that will be political suicide for Obama. It will definitely show his inexperience in not picking the right candidate.

    Very good to hear, Bill Cinton! I am sure he would like to be part of the White House again. I am sure President McCain will let Bill and Hillary do whatever they like in HIS house..heh..heh

    I just have to say to the people that will vote for McCain...where the#$%# is your common sense. These last eight years have been horrible to the economy and to the world. What makes people think that four more years of the same thing with a few minor changes will fix our country? I remember the 90's with a fondness and I actually had some extra money in my bank account while the 2000's have stunk.

    The people that will vote for the guy with eight or nine houses are fools to think that he thinks like you.
    I will vote smart,
    Obama/Biden in 08!
