    I thought Wolfs comment on Hillary being naive was a cheap shot! I wonder if he would have made it to her if she was a man.

    Tonight the Democratic Party makes history. We are Proud to have Sen.Hillary Clinton, & Sen.Barack Obama representing us.It is a Blessing to hear two highly Intelligent Democratic Candidates Square off. It is time for change in this Country; So many people are suffering to the lost of jobs that are sent overseas for less wages. The housing foreclosure Problem in this nation is perturbing. The question now is which Candidate will lead our country forward. “I must admit”, Senator Barack Obama has captured lots of attention, and his Persona has opened up a lot minds in a positive direction. This is truly a definition of a Leader this is an Epiphany of a President…..

    Thanks Obama... Lets just censor the free world. Government shouldn't regulate our entertainment and especially the internet. I don't know about everyone else... but I have my kids block off of all channels except ones showing children oriented content. This is a personal issue not a governmental issue. Parents need to take control. The government can't wipe your A S S too!

    All the respect for Obama voters. I do not hear inspiration and hope. War- important topic and very realisticly handle by Clinton. It will take months and more $$$ to end it. She is making sure that in the future budget everything will be covered. It's simple economics. Clinton – a great leader.

    This is one Democrat who will consider voting Republican for the first time if it is McCain vs. Clinton.

    Hillary won't pick Obama as you can't run with the more popular person on the bottom of the ticket.

    Hillary, Commander in Chief, with no experience. God help us!

    Obama is clear on his stand and precise on pointing differences with Clinton. On many issues – Clinton is more like in between Bush and Obama!

    Wow! I was really waiting for the vice president question to come up!

    I feel like I'm looking at the first woman president.

    Right on, Detric G! But being my age (senior), and having been there in 1968 when Bobby was campaigning, Obama reminds me so much of him, and the vitality he gave to America. He is the first Obama – but is very reminiscent of Bobby.

    The moderation has been HORRIBLE!!! How dare he try to pit them against one another! The LAST thing we need is any more mug slinging!

    Now he possibly won't be right on Day 1 although he said he would be right on Day 1??

    If Clinton is on either side of the ticket, I'm leaving the democratic party! after what? 32 years a faithful voter? you go girl! destroy the party in full!

    there are plenty more who are considering leaving because of Clinton's divisiveness

    January 31, 2008 09:49 pm at 9:49 pm |

    Is it jsut me, or does Clinton have an extremely annoying, patronizing laugh?

    Wolf continues to annoy. But these are important questions and we need to know how these two people differ. Health Care alone! How is that we are the last civilized nation on earth (unfortunately, I use the term loosely) that does not co-ordinate a universal health plan for all? OK. Our taxes will go up. But have you have a major medical crisis lately? Increased taxes will not be a even a drop in the bucket. Nearing $100 K now just for heart stents – not talking chronic care, just an incident . . . what happens to those without insurance – or $ means? This one issue solved would create peace of mind, lessen fear and create a mentally healthier society – which THEN could take on ALL the other issues with vigor and unprecedented energy.
