Schneider: It’s two against one – and Clinton’s not the one!

MYRTLE BEACH, South Carolina (CNN) -
This debate clearly proves Obama is the frontrunner - at least in South Carolina. The other two candidates are teaming up on him, and it's a role he's not accustomed to in debates. Hillary Clinton has always been the center of attention. How things can change!

    I was torn between Clinton and Obama before the debate. I came away though, VERY impressed by the only adult in the group, Sen. Edwards. He just has to step back, stay rational , and let the other two tear each other apart.

    I'm glad you are bringing out the dispute between Clinton & Obama. Personally, I'm sick of Hillary & Bill Clinton stabbing Obama from all sides. I feel very sorry for Obama. He doesn't need to say a word to Hillary when she begins jabbing. I think if he just stayed silent that she wouldn't have much else to say. She is changing what he stood for in the beginning. I believe the Clintons would do anything & I truly mean anything to be in the White House. I wonder just what their reasons actually are for wanting this so much. Quite honestly when the fall elections roll around if Hillary is on the ballot I'm voting Republican. I'm exhausted from it all.

    Thanks for all your hard work with the issues,
    Rosanette Lind

    It would be a DREAM for the Republicans if Hillary won the nomination. She's devisive, she can't bring people together and she's MORE OF THE SAME. If you all want a Republican in office AGAIN, then vote for Hillary. She will NOT win the general election, because she appeals to only SOME Democrats. The Republicans would not want Obama to be the nominee because he will unite this country and Republicans will vote for him. Republicans voted for him in Illinois, and he currently has the support of "red state" governors including North and South Dakota...PEOPLE WAKE UP!

    Obama 08!

    The SC debate clearly showed Obama inexperience. Finally more people realize that experience does matter most especially for the position as President. Hillary was clearly the one with detailed and knowledgable answers to the tough questions and issues important to the American public.

    Hillary will never go back in the White House. Our country is not a dictatorial or a monarchy, or a kingdom Cliton-Bush. GO Obama GO. Go in the White House. The majority such Democrats, Republicans, and Independentas support you. GO Obama GO in the White House.

    It's funny, the democrats have gotten REALLY divided here. I support Obama, but feel like Hillary is Bush or something. Odd, huh? Originally I supported her, but lost respect for her when she never complimented Obama, pretty much brushed him aside as a nobody and then went out and made inaccurate criticisms and tried winning on a policy of negativity and "getting real".

    I don't know, I almost feel like I wouldn't be able to vote for Hillary in a national, even though I know I should for obvious reasons. Obama had better win here, I don't think she has a real chance of winning a national election. I'm a diehard democrat and feel this way, I'm sure a number of other folks do too. More frustrating, she would probably never even give Obama the VP, because she can't stand being outshined by a charismatic leader like that.

    This is the attitude that frustrates me, she walks in there like she already is president and is infuriated that anyone would try to take that away from her. IF she does get the nomination she had better give him VP, otherwise forget it.

    If Obama gets SC, I think he could do well on Super Tuesday and hopefully take the nomination.

    It clearly proves, that Obama has no real program..."Bill Clinton" or "I'm a victim" are his only words to defend his candidacy...It's not enough. In politic, you shouldn't judge people on a color or a gender.The most important thing is what they propose and how they explain it.
    I like Hillary Clinton not because she's a woman, but because she has more than a dream to give, she can make it...
