    If Edwards and Obama would just team up, Hillary would never get the nomination. As stands, Obama and Edwards will split the progressive vote paving the path for President Hillary.

    Edwards needs to drop out of the race, if he really cares about the progressive values he now claims. Otherwise, it's Hello Hillary.

    Thank goodness someone with a brain is beginning to emerge. There for a while it looked like the choice was going to be between hip shooter, two gun O-bomb-O, and the lady that needed a village to raise her husband.

    You know I listened to this podcast and
    even though Barak Obama is in a tie with the other two old guard candidates he got almost no play out of this – Amazing!
    Barak Obama the hottest and most authentic presidential candidate on either side is still fighting against the tide of the old thinking of the status quo warmongers Bush and Hillary.
    Obama is an intelligent, energetic, balanced and couragous leader with a heart for the people. America please don't miss this chance to go with an
    American original – Barak Obams!!!

    It is disappointing that the podcast did not mention Obama's growing success. He is inspiring people to get into the process and offers comprehensive plans on every issue. It is about time that CNN stops characterizing him as a media star or a black candidate. He is the best and most viable Democrat in the race. Face it.

    So far, the only person that has given me a reason to think about politics is Obama. I like what I've seen.

    They are doing everything they can to down play Obama. I pray that people will pick the man with the plan and that is Sen.Obama

    When you have three people with no good ideas it is hard to decide who to vote for in Iowa. If I had to vote in a democratic caucus I would be following Bill Richardson. At least he thinks before he speaks. The other three should follow his example and connect their brains before they tell people what is actually in their hearts.

    Gee what a suprise that Obama is barely mentioned in this podcast even though he is technically in the lead according to this new poll. How about CNN actually providing fair and balanced news coverage for all the candidates no matter if they are white or black. Stop pandering to the old white people you think listen to your podcasts and just assume everyone listens, it's rude not to comment on the full story!!!

    The suggestion of Obama and Edwards teaming up is ridiculous. Edwards is quite different from Obama both in foreign policy and in domestic policy. Obama's too war-happy! I m hoping to see Hilary and Obama bring eachother down and Edwards will be the one left standing.
