Scenes from the trail: Sen. Clinton arrives in Florida

ALT TEXT

Sen. Hillary Clinton arrived in Sarasota, Florida Sunday for a fundraiser. Democratic presidential candidates have pledged not to campaign in Florida this primary season because of national party penalties on the state for its early primary date, but they are allowed to attend fundraisers there.(Photo Credit: Mike Roselli/CNN)

    If Americans are smart, they will ignore the likes of Obama and Hillary and vote for the real change candidate, Mike Huckabee. He's the only candidate seriously looking out for the best interest of all Americans because of his support of the FairTax legislation that eliminates the IRS.

    Hillary is running scared! She abandoned the people of SC that voted for her. She did not even stay back to say thank you to her supporters. Rather, she decided to campaign in Nashville, TN. How ungrateful! Where is the beef ?

    Obama is a nice guy and a great speaker...but there's no experience and little substance. I'm a Republican supporting Hillary. She will win most of the states on super Tuesday and will be well on her way to victory.

    IT'S ALL ABOUT TRUST ! IF CANDIDATES AGREED NOT TO CAMPAIGN IN A STATE, AND ONE OF THEM DECIDES TO THE THE OPPOSITE, IT SHOWS WHY A LOT OF PEOPLE HAVE BEEN SAYING THAT SOME CANDIDATES WOULD SAY ANYTHING TO GET ELECTED. OUR WORDS SHOULD BE OUR BOND! IF YOU CAN'T BE TRUTHFUL TO A COMMUNITY OR GROUP THAT WE BELONG TO, HOW CAN YOU BE TRUTHFUL TO A NATION OR THE REST OF THE WORLD

    you people discuss me. The hatred you all have is sadning. Hillary is not a hateful woman, you are.To all the people out there that continue to bash and call names. It will come back to you all someday. Mom used to say, if you haven't got anything nice to say about someone–don't say nothing. Remember when you were kids, remember saying, stick and stoned can hurt you, but names will never hurt. Lets all stop all this hatred and start respecting and love one another. Lets rid the world of all the hatred. Lets stop throwing stones.We have enough problems in this world. Lets stand together in harmony! I thank you all for your time listening to me.

    Florida citizens are USA citizens and deserve to be reconized. The true value of a candidate is in the ability to see all citizens as valuable, not just a delegate endorsement. Hillary is a smart woman and sees the worth of all.

    Why didn't Hillary speak up about the unfairness in Florida months ago? She must be afraid that she will lose without it! Hopefully, people are waking up about the sleeziness of the Clintons.

    Obama 08, YES WE CAN!

    A lot of people that make that make their informed statements here, don’t have a clue what their talking about. I voted early, and sure enough there on the Florida ballot where the names, Edwards, and Obama along with Clinton. Sorry Mark, you’re an Idiot. If it is any consolation you are not alone.

    OBAMA IS BREAKING THE RULES HE IS NOT ALLOWED TO RUN ANY COMMERCIALS. BUT HE IS DOING SO ALL OVER THE STATE.

    THE DNC CALLED OBAMA AND TOLD HIM TO PULL THE ADS. HE DIDN'T AND THEY ARE NOT DOING ANYTHING ABOUT IT. I WONDER WHY?

    BUT THE DNC ALLOWS THE PEOPLE RUNNING FOR PRESIDENT TO RAISE MONEY IN THE STATE, BUT NO RUNNING COMMERCIALS OR CAMPAIGNING.

    SENATOR CLINTON IS DOING NOTHING WRONG. BUT WHAT OBAMA IS DOING IS BREAKING THE RULES THE DNC SET UP. HE IS TRYING TO GAIN AN UNFAIR ADVANTAGE BY CHEATING.

    No matter what state you are from, everyone's voice should be heard. No one should have the right to stop someone's voice when selecting who they think will lead the nation with the true interest of all Americans! Look around, this is The United States of America, the country founded with freedom at the heart.

    Clintons cheat again. They are so arrogant to believe many people will not realize she is running against no one! They continue to underestimate American people. Since Bill loves music, let me dedicate these “Police” lyrics to Clintons:
    Every move you make
    Every bond you break
    Every step you take
    Every smile you fake
    We’ll be watching you!

    Obama is running ads on CNN. CNN is a national channel. Florida is part of the nation. That is not the same as campaigning in Florida. Over a year ago the rules were decided. If Florida would have waited 1 week (or longer) they would have delegates. They CHOSE to make their own rules. They CHOSE to lose their delegates. The Florida Democratic Party is the issue, not the candidates (except that HRC apparently cannot keep a simple promise – change the rules if you're not winning)
