    I received no answer to my questions I asked previously. When did Obama attack Clinton in the NH democratic debates and how many other candidate's spouses received as much airtime and attention as Bill Clinton? I would seriously like some perspective on this. TIA

    What I REALLY need is an in-depth special report (preferably a 3-part series) on the latest ZOO TIGER attacks across America. Get Anderson's "Keeping them honest" team on it (the tigers are obviously keeping something from us), and maybe Amanpour can report on location in Africa or India or wherever the tigers come from. Sanjay can explain to us why exactly it is that it is hazardous to a human being's health to be attacked by a tiger. Do not forget to include a clip from that entire week last year where you reported nothing other than some guy got bit by a cougar since it's human/feline confrontation related. You can follow it up with Lou Dobbs lamenting that, alas, they are not eating all illegal immigrants.

    THEN you can report on the next most important story in the universe, the booing of a TV screen by Hillary Clinton supporters after her rival said he'd be the next president of the United States.

    Scott Ritter US/UN head inspector comes out public in 2002 before the war and states that there is no weapons of mass destruction in Iraq. So checking Senator Clinton's experience and records, she voted Yea for the war in Iraq and helped get us in this mess, and some are naive enough to think she is the right person who is going to get us out of this war. WAKE UP AMERICA.

    No matter who is the coming president the first thing that should be in your mind is what they can do for you. Establishment of the government by the people should benefit the people not themselves !!

    Clinton supporters can boo all they want. They may think Obama can't be the president for change but i will tell them this "YES WE CAN".

    People need to wake up. I'm sick and tired of us sitting around letting politicians have their way with us, we all have to wise up. The Clintons already serve two terms in the white house, voting for Hillary could bring about yet another term. A term of broken promises such as those she promised on healthcare in 1993. We have a long way to go to know who will be the next democratic nominee and i hope all of us are wise enough to know that the best person for president is Barack Obama. I feel in my heart of hearts that he will win. He will make a good president. He is optimistic, he is the one who will bring a new change, a change we can belive in. People look around and see what's going on in this nation, do you want a president who will unite us are a next president such as Bush. Do you want to change or do you want to go on with the same old things. Wake up America. VOTE OBAMA!!!!

    Language in these campaigns are important, but actions are what everyone sees first. I wish the news would show the records of all the candidates. In full view you would then see what each person might do if elected. But our media just keeps trying to create issues, like this one. Tonight the news is all about the "Black" vote vs. the "White" vote in South Carolina. This would not even be an issue if Obama was not black. Likewise during the Hillary rally in New Hampshire a protester yelled out to Hillary, "Iron my shirt." That person would have never yelled that at any male candidate. For the record I would love to have an African American President, or a Women, however after looking at their records I am still not convinced that either are properly qualified. However Hillary does have more going for here out of experience than does Obama. I on the other hand would not be upset if John McCain won the Presidential race. But then again he has more experience than does Hillary. That is after looking at their records.

    Did anyone notice that Hillary mentioned Barack last after her win in NH. Poor Hilalry, she'll do anything to stop voters. 1 month ago she was unbeatable in NH, prejected to win by a landslide. She's down 1

    hillary is all plastic. When she says she cares about people, what she really means is, I pretend to care about people so that I can assume control of the country. She's always thought of herself as better than the rest of us and better in position to tell us how to run our lives. A socialist at heart, it wouldn't surprise me at all to see her set up reeducation camps for everyone who disagrees with her if she became president.

    The job of the president is not to "inspire Americans." It is to lead the country. I do not believe either Obama or Clinton have that ability. I'm not sure who does yet.

    Laugh now HIllary supporters but your day is coming. I talked with a whole lot of minorities today and all of them said they will sit this election out if Hillary Clinton is the nominee.

    I couldn't find one minority who supports Billary Clinton now. Here is a chance for the Republicans to grab African American voters and win the election.

    Let me tell you, my African American neighbor said the New Hampshire Democrats just plain LIED about voting for Obama. Just tell the truth, folks.
    You don't want to be known as a state full of LIARS do you? Just tell the darn truth, please. Nobody will blame you for choosing white over black. That's your right to do so.



    I agree with you, Freddie. I wouldn't vote for the other old womanizer, Rudy Giuliani, but I would vote for any other Republican to show the Democrats that my vote cannot be taken for granted. If they want to choose Hillarly, then their ship can sink with her.

    Obama's charisma will not get this country out of the mess it's in right now. The only thing that will help at all is a candidate that knows what they are doing and that certainly isn't Obama. All of you that vote for him will be voting for the NEXT worst president of the United States. Your choice, vote for someone that can get the country back on track or vote for personality and stay in the rut you're in right now thanks to Bush. Bush and Obama are like two peas in a pod, no difference at all.

    Cheryl wrote on Jan 9th that experience is on Bill's wife's side. What experience. She has done nothing meaningful while in Congress. Being the wife of the President doesn't make her anyone qualified to be President than being the husband of a jet pilot make him qualified to be a jet pilot. She is a smart person yes, but experienced enough for the Presidency no. We are not electing a celebrity we are electing a President. PLEASE think for a minute. Stop with all the trash talking and THINK. Who is the most QUALIFIED. The politician want you to follow blindly done.

    The USA need a honest person as president, to repair the international dammage done by Bush.

    Most People all over the world, have lost the trust on America!

    In the last years anti Americanism came very popular here in Europe and the rest of the world.

    Since Obama became popular most people hope that he will win
    Because he would be a president, in who we in Europe would belive and than we could beginn again to trust in your Nation America.

    Not only because he is honest and good person the view of most people but also because we would see that the American population is ready to make a real change with Obama.

    If Obama would win the election, America will get many lost friends back (me included ) and get also new friends all over the world.

    ONLY Obama can do that!!!

    Americans!!! Please vote for Obama and get the admiration from all over the world!!!

    Which candidate cut a hole in the America flag while illegal aliens cross our border in the background?

    Which candidate wears an eye-patch like a pirate?

    And, did you know there are THREE women in Arizona's Primary ballot?


    Arizona has produced a slew of candidates for the highest office in the nation. That's right, more candidates to choose from. While the country and its political pundits are focused on tiny East Coast states, some ten Republicans and fifteen new Democratic candidates will appear in the Arizona Primary ballot this February. An effort sponsored by The Tucson Weekly, an Arizona alternative newspaper, has opened the gates for a stable of dark-horse candidates.

    As with all politics the sparks are already flying. Candidate Sean "CF" Murphy responds to a political ad filed by Democratic candidate Doctress Neutopia in which she desecrates the American flag by cutting a hole in it.

    No bias. Fake tears. Cross her & you get Arkansas Flu. Clinton supporters accuse Obama supporters of suspicious behavior. Pot – Black.
    How in Sam Hill does a woman, a discredit to the female gender, score so many idolizing fans when her entire record in office, gov. & pres., are ALL lies, manipulation, racist remarks, illegal campaign money, fraud, numerous ethics violations, failed pograms, on board with Walmart who openly abused employees and violated wage laws, an American Flag with satanic stars, open witchcraft practice in the White House, destroyed documents, withheld others....and last but not least Absolutely No positive content in her campaign. What tha.? Are these people paid, traitors, hypnotized, co-dependent or all of the forementioned?
    Does character assassination, rigged voting, and a passel of paid celebrities qualify one to be an honest leader?
