  2. Zero Respect for CNN

    All other news outlets report Obama with 3 EC votes and McCain with 21 as of 5pm PST. CNN says McCain only has 8.

    What a joke. Report the news.

    Eika, you are an idiot. . Have you ever been to West Virginia? It is a wonderful state full of great people. You are ignorant and obviously should not be making public comment on a state which you know absolutely nothing about.. I voted for Obama and many of my friends did as well. Get a life!

    Haha Erika lacks judgment.

    hmm How old are you? For 1. Grow up. For 2. Wasn't West Virginia the one to push JFK to nomination?

    Immature adults now a-days.

    Um, Erika, McCain hasn't won West Virginia yet.
    And Manchin is a Democrat.
