    All Liberals are lost souls...when they actually realize what's going on in the world, they will become Republicans! Neither Hussein Obama or Bill, I mean Hillary will be elected...you're wasting your vote and you better brace yourself for immediate taxes!

    You guys are all blind. They are both CFR and I'd like to invite you all to look up what that means. It's time we really clean up the government.

    Why has education not been discussed by ANY campaign? Don't they realize that ignorance is our biggest foe; that they mortage crisis is due in great part to it?

    Yes it would be pretty much over if these two ran together of corse that would mean one has to swallow their pride.

    Sure it took a Clinton to clean up after the first Bush. But that same Clinton brought about the ascendency of Bush II. Do we think the first Clinton has changed? Let's not set ourselves up for another NeoCon failure.

    eliminate the trillions of $$$ spent on the war and we could then afford universal healthcare!!

    The empty argument that the Bush & Clinton families have occupied the White House too long is just that. You go Hill, clean up the latest Bush mess!

  15. The Truth

    honestly, Hillary looks like the type that once she gets into office she'll neglect those that got her there. Obama is sincere and that's what we need! LATINOS for OBAMA!

    Hillary is more of the same of Washington. Her experiennce as first lady is what?

    Tell me you don't see something wrong with this:

    Bush – Clinton, Clinton – Bush – Bush.... and then Clinton again?

    I am just now starting to pay attention to this: as in NJ we will vote next week. Hillary is very eloquent and speaks substance. While Barak is great at delivering speeches, he is not so polished and eloquent when he has to speak on his toes! It is clear he is fairly green. Some questions seem to stump him. He is not as comfortable as she is. HIllary seems to know her stuff like the back of her hand. My first impression is that he needs a little more time, maybe VP for now.

    OBAMA for president, Hillary as Vice President!

    To be frank Obama seems like a bit of a Bull___ Artist. Seems like he just makes jokes, sits back and let's Hillary make the most significant points. He doesn't say anything really worthwhile. He speaks well sure, but I don't want someone in the White House who justs SPEAKS well.

    So far, I believe Hillary to be the victor.

    Lol....that was good. Did ya hear that? "It took a Clinton to clean up after the first Bush and now it will take a Clinton to clean up after the second Bush." I like that. I'm still voting for Obama though.

    Quote of the night: It took a Clinton to clean up after the first Bush, it will take a Clinton to clean up at after the second Bush.

    What about the environment and our dependency on oil?

    Hillary's Bush clean up concept is too ambitious even for a Clinton [cleaner]. If that's why she is running, then her cause is in vain. Sad! Sad!
