    I like the endorsement he got today from their governer. He could really gain a lot of cross over votes in Kansas- a big "red" state.

    Obama 2008- Dallas, TX supports you!

    That's what I like to see. Men, women, black, white, all different races, young, old, and most importantly, open to new ideas and a new perspective!

    Stick to the game plan Obama. Don't be distracted by the dirty campaigning in Florida. Everyone knows Hillary can't keep her word or tell the truth. There isn't a level the Clinton's won't stoop to.

    I bet the same attorney they used in Nevada is already filing papers for Michigan and Florda delegates to be seated.

    America knows better and surely there has to be something or someone big enough to stop them. I'm counting on that to be one and the rest of disgusted Americans...no one wants them back in the White House except those people who are so blinded by Clintonitis they can't smell the coffee.

    America needs you Barack!
    IF you snubbed HRC good for you. I believe from what I have seen it was an oversight but it does not matter to me. Why should you go run up like a good little boy and shake her hand after what she and Bill have done to you.
    Most of us will never vote for HRC no matter what. We have had enough dynasty and corruption from the Clinton and Bush years to last a lifetime.
    March on Barack for truth and honor in American politics.

    Great speech, I watched it on the internet on CNN.com

    It is so wonderful to see Governor Sebelius and Senator McCaskill joining Barack during this event.

    How old are you Joe? Only kids type in all caps. Grow up.

    The Obama folks may be saying that the Florida primary is just a beauty contest, but each one of us know that they are combing over the Hispanic exit poll numbers with a fine-toothed comb. Based on the Florida numbers, he is BOMBING with Hispanics.....this was the warm-up for California, and unlike the well-to-do, college kid, and African American sets, Hispanics are not seeming to be buying what the Senator is selling.

    Joe, you're an ignorant fellow. It was a national ad. It ran here in Nevada too. Is there any reason for him to run an ad in a state where he lost already? No. If you actually did research on your candidates, you'll see how ignorant you really are. The fact of the matter is that Hillary tried to spin this faux win to her favor. Funny, she didn't do that in Michigan where she nearly lost to Undecided! She can't divide the Democratic party and then expect to unite them against the Republicans and we'll lose the White House for another 4 years.

    Actually, these were NATIONAL ads, and thus, along with all other candidates' national ads, were not against the rules. But you go ahead and worship whomever you choose. In the end, what is right prevails. Calling names make you feel better does it?

    Joe: Easy there killer! It's more important that we have a Democrat in the White House then whether someone ran ads in FL. I understand your emotion though. Glad you're a Dem at least.

    I guess he and the media will have to play the race card again. I can hear it now, he and Oprah will now have a Hispanic Accent on the campaign trail.

    Joe Please grow up. You can't live your life with all this resentment. I don't want you to get ill because of resentment.
