    You Clinton slimeballs are really something else. Trying to trumpet your "big win" in Florida. You all have the same level of credibility as your candidate. Losers.

    Can't wait until the Obama rally up here on Saturday!

    If anyone watched CNN last night and saw what Anderson Cooper was saying and how he was saying it, there would be no doubt on where CNN stands! I am glad that Clinton snubed Anderson Cooper and CNN and did not grant them any of her time, given what CNN has been doing to tarnish her image! Reporting is suppose to be an unbiased science, and what CNN has been doing is all biased! Why don't they just come out and officially endorse Obama? It is amazing how much CNN has lost credibility by covering this election the way it has!

    There was a time that the Clinton supporters got on my nerves but at this point I look forward to their comments because I'm guaranteed a good laugh. I support Obama 100%.

    SW Ga,

    It means nothing. None of the candidates campaigned in Florida so Clinton won on name recognition alone. Any of the pro-Hillary posts here that say it was a big win are just lying because they know that Hillary was absolutely routed in South Carolina, which was a actual contested state that was worth delegates.

    It was not enough of what the DNC did to the Florida voters, but what CNN did was just as bad, not covering the success of Hillary Clinton winning the Democrat votes.

    Now even Obama is acting like the DNC, and CNN, and not giving the voters of Florida credit where credit is due.

    Obama is a nothing and those that are following him are following the "Pied Piper". Nothing more! And if by some strange chance that Obama does get nominated, then I plan on voting for the Republican.

    Obama if elected, will have our military go into Kenya and help fight their civil war.

    WAKE UP AMERICA! We DO NOT need a "Rookie" President, who has neither the skills, talent or the experience to lead this country back from the blink of disaster.

    We want Hillary Clinton, who DOES have the skills, talent and experience to lead us into the future and bring change to all Americans!

    To call Hillary Supporters stupid is uncalled for. They know full well there are no delegates, but only implore Obama supporters to admit that a LOT of people voted for her in Florida. That is NOT meaningless to people, especially not the Florida voters.

    Sure, laugh about how this loss for Obama doesn't count but you won't be laughing for long.

    Oh "I hear the winds of change coming"??? What in the world does that mean? Sounds to me like the rhetoric of a high school student council election. Should we vote for the "popular" trendy choice, or should we vote for the nerdy kid who actually has plans for being in office? He says he going to change politics, but he sits next to Ted Kennedy at the State of the Union?? Sounds like HE will do anything for votes.

    Clinton didn't campaign in Florida, no one did. She didn't run ads in Florida. She showed up AFTER the polls closed to say Thank you. Wow...go spin that into how she's evil and twisted and a liar.

    By Hillary campaigning in Florida, putting her name in Michigan's ballot after both Democratic Candidates agreed not to campaign in the two states was a sign of DESPERATION, GREED and comeone who doesn't get the CONCEPTS of importance of DELEGATES. Looking at tonights figures, Obama would have beat her in Florida if he would have campaigned.

    Gotta love the poltical cartoons with a drunk- looking Ted Kennedy waving bye to Hillary in a car, sinking under the water at Chapaquidick.

    Jesse, MN you deserve a medal. You are 100% right, Hillary didn't win anything, it was just a beauty contest, and quite frankly she isn't that pretty so i don't know why she won . This does nothing for the campaign, so we will just have to wait until next tuesday when Obama wins mostly everything!!!

    Obama 08!!

    P.S. Brian i guess you arent smart enough to realize trumpets is a synonym for celebrates, i guess that is the kind of intelligence that favors Hillary and thinks CNN has a bias towards Obama.

    Ha ha!

    If Hilary continue to having to 'get her voice' back, there will come a time real soon when Hilary will lose her voice for the last time, when she finally concede. lol

    Jesse, I will accept your apology on the day after Super Tuesday. Your comments are insensitive and rude, just like Mr. Obama on occasion.
    Mr. Obama is not ready to be President just yet. Have fun at your big rally.

    I see that this race is getting a bit more divisive. I wonder who we are beholden to for that? Billary? I missed them the last eight years, but I've CHANGED.

    Hilly loses in S. Carolina where votes actually count, and she skips the state on election night, to park herself at safe distance in Tennessee. But within seventy two hours, Ms Sour Grapes goes to Florida where votes don't count, to thank the voters there. Meanwhile Billy lets us all know that S Carolina vote, was after all colored by a racial preference. Let's nominate her and weep.

    Hillary broke no party rules, she did not campain in FL. ALL candidates were allowed closed fund raisers there and they ALL had them. The only one that did any "campaining" there was Obama, one of his TV commercials ran in FL. Part of some national package he purchased and of course explanations were given. Hillary arrived in FL after the polls were closed to thank people for supporting her.

    Over 800,000 people came out to support Hillary in FL today, Obama over 500,000 votes, a distant second. A victory for Hillary, you bet! When voters will turn out for you like that with no campaining and no delegates to gain imagine what they will do for her going forward to super Tuesday. FL was an important message state for Hillary, this party is just getting started.

    Go Hillary!

    Obama was down by 17% in SC and Iowa. Yet he won in those states after a week of campaigning–and even routed in SC. Yet you Clinton supporters are so blind you don't realize people voted on NAME recognition and not on issues. That's not democracy, and that's why this race didn't matter.

    I have to agree. these Hillary folks are scary.... It really shows the divisive nature of the status quo. Not an open and honest debate but nasty barbs that sound more appropiate at a football game than a national debate as to what kind of leader do we want.

    I sumise this is why Obama does well with young smart and educated voters. At least they are smart enough to know what is truly important.. Hey Hillary folks... Football game is sunday,, save all your uninformed rants for then

    Yeah for Obama! He's the one!
    Thanks for the shot, CNN.
    Hillary needs to stop being so gleeful about over winning 0 delegates. It's a bit silly.
    I'm a woman and I'm voting for Barack Obama!

    The part about Hillarys voice that you don't understand is that is is coming out of both sides of her mouth. I live in Florida and can tell you that Obama got 31% of the vote without campaigning. Once Obama gets a chance to meet the voters of Florda Hillary's numbers will at the very least even out. Truth and integrity will win out over lies and weak character. Hillary nomination=John McCain President
