    I was there tonight ... amaaaaaazing atmosphere !!! Obama will unite this country and if Billaries dirty tricks pay off our family will pay her/them back by not staying home in November but by voting for the Republicans.

    Billary has nooooo chance with her faked '35 years of experience' and all family scandals. She or he ... their co-presidency will fail in November and the Democratic Party would be broken ! How can you lose twice against Bush, how could you lose AFTER Bush. That would not be a viable party !

    Obama is awsome. His policies are exactly what we need. He has my vote!

    Hillary runs away from South Carolina (where delegates actually count) to Tennesee where she knew she would be defeated.

    She chooses to place her name on the ballot in Michigan and campaigns in Florida, where she knew she would win, despite the fact that no delegates are going to be awarded there.

    HIllary Clinton breaks her own party's rule and yet her supporters think that is fine. Is this what we are waiting for? By the way Obama did not compete.

    Therefore, if you want someone who is ethical, honest , and trustworthy, then vote Obama.

    someone from the clinton camp please tell me where hillary clinton would be if she was hillary rodham? This doesn't disqualify her from being a capable candidate, many other things take care of that, but it does show what this election is really about.

    She is so arrogant and a deceiver. Wake up people! Even McCain seems more honest.

    As mentioned in another blog, I am a moderate voter. In the past I have voted mostly Republican, with a major exception, I voted for Senator Barack Obama in the Illinois Senate elections. I am proud of my vote then, and I am proud of my support to Senator Obama now. As a armchair student of history, I look at the past and reflect on the future. I feel that we are in the middle of a historical moment. I see in Senator Obama, an intelligent, vigorous, honest and inspiring individual. He reminds me in many ways how the foundation of the Republican Party was supposed to be, the progressive party of Lincoln and Teddy Roosevelt. I look at Senator Obama and see not a "politician" but a leader who can reach across party lines to moderate Republicans like me and excite us. I see none of these qualities in Hillary Clinton. I sigh everytime I hear about her experience. Facts are facts, her elected experience is less than Obama's. Her so called public service was built on the coat tails of her husband's career. When she tried to reform health care in the 90's, she was not inclusive and alienated Democrats and Republicans alike. Hillary and Bill have always said and done whatever they needed to to win an election. Hillary has always been about herself and not the people she purports to represent. I can say without a doubt, if she is nominated the Democrats can kiss moderates and independents like me goodbye as I will be voting for either McCain or not at all. So I implore undecideds to look to the past as well as the future, because Obama represents both.

    Joe, I was a Hillary supporter and I respect the lady, but currently I am in the Obama side. I did not see any campaign here in FL and that is the only reason Hillary won the state. No matter what, we are Dem and I will vote for whoever wins. I sure don't want another Hell Republican for 4 more years. We already had the Dumbest president in the History of the US for 8 years.

    This race is going to come down to the super delegates. Even if Clinton were to continue in the polls and voting lead nationally, it is only 42% compared to Obama's 32%. Unless she gets 60% of the votes nationally, they will split all of the voting delegates 50/50. That is how the DNC does it!!!!

    What does this mean? The 800 superdelgates and all of John Edwards' delegates would have to fall her way. That is not likely. Obama is racking up the super delegates now that Kenneday has provided cover for those who are afraid of a Clinton backlash. They can now and are breaking to Obama.

    This race will be decided at the convention. There is a wind blowing, it is called CHANGE!!!!!!

    I say all of that to say this; Clinton and Obama supporters chill out and vote for who you think will best serve this country. Please do not base (your vote) on gender, ethinicity, religion, popularity, who can beat a republican or who looks good on TV.

    The economy will turn around because it is a FREE market system, the war will end because the entire nation wants it to end, it is now about finding common ground on when and how, education will continue to be a battle and taxes will always be an issue.

    Most importantly, decide based on who can best lift our country's standing internationally……

    But by all means: VOTE!

    The candidate for change accepts endorsements from some of the oldest slimeballs in politics...Ted Kennedy? Wow...a candidate who talks about "out with the old politics and in with the new", really picked the WRONG man to promote his campaign for change.

    The candidate for change, who wants out with the old politics and in with the new, picked the oldest slimeball in politics for an endorsement. Isn't that being a hypocrite?

    The Clintons probably should thank CNN's now famous 'journalist' Jessica Yellin.

    Obama: I didn't snub Clinton
    Posted: 04:00 PM ET– CNN's Chris Welch and Alexander Mooney

    There were more than 6 hours for voters to make their last minute decision for Hillary.
    Thanks to CNN for the news we can trust!

    The Florida primary didn't matter. Ads or not, Hillary spent time in the state in a week which is larger than any other.

    Great speech by Obama by the way.
