    If these two would team up, Clinton for President and Obama as VP, it would be a historic event. A true vote for change.

    Obama has carisma and desire to help the world, and Hilary has the connections and experience to effect the change.

    I am now sure that Hillary is the next president of this country. She LOOKS and BEHAVES as one already. Obama might be a good candidate, but the problems of this country are so great, I am not willing to risk it on someone who obviously needs to be more polished in Washington, middle America and in the world affairs.

    What are each of them going to do to address global warming?
    Will they involve Al Gore?

    Why do they step around the emigration policy of laws already in effect, but not enforced

    I love how every sentence that exits Hilary's mouth is met by applause. Quick lets flash to Susan Sarandon.

    These 2 candidates are trying to show democratic unity. The need to the American people to forgive the bad blood of the last debate and the need the news anchors to focus on something that WE want to hear.

    CNN tried to jar that wall of unity and it didn't work. Obama attempted to call him on it. Unlike the republicans we are down to 2....It HAS to be about the issues now.

    The republican debate was disgusting! uncontrolled and full of babble.

    No more Bushes or Clintons as Presidents "EVER", this is a republic not a monarchy.

    Both families (Bush and Clinton) should get out of and stay out of politics.

    Hillary is amazing - great answer to the Bush & Clinton family topic!!!!

    Somebody remind Hillary it was her husband's tax increases that brought about the last recession and that it was the Bush "tax cuts" that got the economy back on track! Where was her "voice" in the Senate?

    Hillary's answer to the silly Bush/Clinton argument was fantastic. I think that was a terrific response.

    Illinois is Barack's home state, and he claims to have made Health insurance available to all, WRONG!!!! My premiums went UP!!!!!! Beware of hollow answers from Obama.

    I will certainly be voting for Huckabee, the only really cares for the common hard working American.

    HIllary – Obama / Obama – Hillary....either way they need to be running mates NOW and blow the Republicans away. HIllary and Obama in the white house together will restore the deep gaping wound in America created by the bush administration!!!! I pray this is how it plays out...Hell McCain will die before November hes so old and Romney wears that funny underwear!

    She's the clear winner. Masterful!

    People should know that Hillary was absolved of every single charge leveled against her during the previous clinton administration. That's part of the problem – and also the strategy of the right wing.

    Hillary is the right person for the job and is ready to bring dignity back to the United States. Whatever we do a Democrat is a MUST!

    I think Obama is answering intelligently and providing logical well thought out answers. Mandates on health care which Clinton wants will lead to people paying fines and still not having health care. Barack Obama has it right and is absolutely winning this debate.
