    President Bill Clinton can cry or say what he thinks about his wife's failure, it is his right to express his opinion. However what we know is that today American people are thirsty for CHANGE. Without doubt, Obama is bringing this Change we really need in our country. Obama is the symbol of american union ( republican and democrate people or independent persons...). We thank God for His gift.

    To the person said that you believe a lot of the statements are "borderline racist."

    Well, I do believe that a lot of these comments are BLATANTLY SEXIST!

    Was anyone watching Charlie Rose when he asked former campaign consultant for President Clinton and friend of Senator Clinton, what he would advise Sen. Clinton to do now, given Obama's reported lead? His advice was to show her vulnerable side. The coffee shop 'moment' came less than 24 hours after that advice. Genuine emotion or political strategy???

    Obama cannot keep saying he's going to CHANGE things without saying exactly WHAT he wants to change, why, and when. Change from what – to what? The news media needs to CALL HIM OUT on what he means by that word. Define it for us. It's too simplistic just to say we're going to change things. We need to prayerfully consider who we'll vote for, and that person needs to hold the Constitution dear. It has served our nation well thus far.
