    ZERO; ZERO; ZERO! All of you knew it before, all! So why crying now? That's the party rules and Florida broke it. How stupid! If Billary where as brilliant as all your supportes wants us to believe,she would have been silent or just given a short statement. That would have been considered brilliant by me. Worst woman on earth!

    OBAMA 08!

    Hillary didn't win anything today in Florida and anyone who says she did isn't very realistic. Hillary traveled back to Florida to claim a victory over a vote that doesn't prove she will be the winner in the general election. She felt compelled to show herself as a winner when over the past couple days, she has been a big-time loser.

    It is sad that she tried to make voters overlook Senator Obama's recent victories. . .but she failed. I suggest all of you Hillary supporters to review the recent videos of this lady, especially the one she held after Obama's win in SC. All of the people sitting behind her looked bored and stuned. . .just hoping she wouldn't repeat her same old. . .same old . . .campaign rhetoric. Boring!!! And where is her husband? Obviously he has been sent away, but I suspect this is too late. The harm has been done.

    There is no way that voters will not forget the shameful behavior of our former president. There is no way that Senator Clinton can overcome her campaign's failed attempts to bring Obama down.

    Compare the rallies of Hillary with those of Obama's where the people are simply reeling with excitement about the possibilities of a future with him as our leader. I simply cannot believe that Hillary will win. Our country is becoming more and more enthusiastic about a new voice in Washington. And it is not Hillary's.

    Sorry, but no win, Hillary!

    Obama all the way!!!!

    Latest poll results from Florida: Hillary won highest in the dementia demographic. A subsection of geriatrics who thought they were voting for Bill.

    The Clintons have gotten desperate. Hillary is even saying that Obama snubbed her. How sad. Hillary why did you snub the voters in South Carolina???

    Wow people are stupid... the same dumb majority that elected good ol' Bush Jr. is going to mess up the country for another 4 years (or even worse, another 8!). Has anyone criticizing Obama even looked at his record? In Illinois he did a lot of bi-partisan work and compromised to make everyone happy. Strange concept, huh? All politicians speak in their convoluted non-answers, but Obama does have a vision and solutions to many of the country's problems. In addition, he's getting endorsements from a lot of politicians... among them Senator McCaskill and the Kennedys!!! They wouldn't put their name on any candidate they didn't think was capable of changing the country.

    I'm 22 years old and live in GA and it's the first time I ever voted. I advance voted early today. I picked Obama because he inspires and when he speaks I honestly feel like he would make a difference and cares about changing the future for young people like myself. Mrs. Clinton to me seems rehearsed and very robotic. I've been watching cnn lately and when Mrs. Clinton speaks she seems fake and calculated. People that like Bill Clinton are voting for her in hopes that he will secretly be running the country for the 3rd time. I've actually heard many ppl say that they are voting for her because of Bill. How is it that someone that has 35 years of experience, just "found their voice" in New Hampshire. Did anybody but me catch that? She must be a slow learner. VOTE FOR OBAMA

    There were also Hillary ads in FL. If a candidate runs national ads she or he can not help it if they show up in FL. Obama and Hillary have run national commercial ads, so Obama haters stop pointing fingers where you shouldn't.

    Hillary is trying so hard to win the race to the White House that she keeps losing her voice.Then all of sudden when she gets a win even when it is one that doesn't count she suddenly finds her voice.How many times is going to have to find herself on the campaign trail.If she has this hard of a time realizing who she is I hate to see her win.She has not forgotten how to be cunning to get what she wants.Not saying she will get it I can't believe that people have forgotten what these two are about.Maybe some are to young to know what they are about but it is not good .And this I'm sure will be brought to light soon enough.

    My son & I saw Obama in El Dorado, KS. It was a wonderfully diverse, excited crowd, from all around the region . . . ready to caucus. Sorry to disappoint all you naysayers!

    Speaking of endorsements, here's what Obama gets from Teddy Kennedy: 46 years of experience in the United States Senate. Except for Senator Robert Byrd, he's the longest-serving United States Senator. Favors unlimited immigration, legal and illegal. He sided with George Bush in pushing the failed NO CHILD LEFT BEHIND. Endorsed and supported loser John Kerry in 2004. And Obama says he wants to bring change and new ideas to Washington!

    Hillary in '08!

    Yes, while obama stayed with with the kennedy's, he ran his ad's in fla. oh yeah let's see who is the insider of politics as usual, seems to me he takes that horse by the rains since he got the endorsment.

    I noticed that the HRC supporters like to type in large caps. Is that because they are the less educated? I think so, just look at what they are saying.
    Billary won Florida, as did McCain. The only rationale that I can see is that Florida is filled with so many elderly demented people, they tipped the scale.

    Yeah and isn't Florida the State that voted George Bush into office. Thanks Florida you have great judgment!

    To all the people who write: "If Hillary wins the nomination I am going to vote Republican," that is the most idiotic thing I have ever heard. I doubt many of the Hillary voters would be spiteful enough to consider the same; that is just naive and ignorant. Maybe it's because some of you are too young to remember the last 7 years, or maybe it's because Obama lost big today.

    Americans voters, especially young voters, don't let the media brainwash you into voting for Obama. Do your research and you will find that he is not the best candidate, especially for young voters. Talk is cheap, so don't be swayed by oratory.

    Obama is now pandering to the Caucasians in Kansas after pandering to the African-Americans in South Carolina – how is that the new type of politics he alleges he practices? I hope the Caucasians and African Americans are not fooled by him.
