    Just ask the CNN pundits.... the votes don't matter.

    No one needs to vote, or if you do, watch the returns. CNN can tell you right now what the result will be.

    If Obama gets the popular vote, but looses the delegates, Obama wins.
    If Obama looses the popular vote, but wins the deletates, Obama wins.
    If Clinton wins the popular vote and wins the delegates, Obama wins.

    Don't believe me? Just ask Gloria Borger. Clinton could take this by 10 pts and 100 delegates and Gloria would explain how Clinton lost.

    Obama is saving America's butt by generating interest in the democratic process. A process that white males have drained dry, and a process that is in need of a new facade. He is the purple ink on the thumb that the world sees when it puts American democracy under the microscope. What does Nuri al-Maliki think about all this?...

    CNN's latest general election polls showing Obama has beats McCain by 8 points. Hillary vs McCain 50 to 47. Obama is the better candidate in the general election and better for America. With Clinton, we would see continued gridlock and partisanship in DC. Obama gives us a different path forward!

    I dont think any of the remaining canidates are worth spit. Why is it that every election we have to pick between the lesser of all the EVILS? We need someone who will restore the rule of law,restore our rights and have these crminals running the whitehouse and the rest of the government prosecuted ! I dont hear any of these canidates talking about doing that. You know whats just as bad is I dont hear any of you so called news people talking about it either! The Bush library should be the prison library!

    Obama secured endorsements from: Janet Napolitano, Democratic governor of Arizona; Kathleen Sebelius, Democratic governor of Kansas; Claire McCaskill, Democratic senator from Missouri; Tim Kaine, Democratic governor of Virginia, and Ben Nelson, Democratic senator from Nebraska.

    What do all these states have in common? They are all states that George W Bush won twice. If you’re the next generation of Democrat, trying to appeal to the centre of the country, Obama is your candidate. Clinton takes the party and national politics back to the polarised red-blue ideological past. The danger of this is that if you are someone in the middle – on the purple edge of the red-blue divide – then the polarising nature of Clinton might mean that if she were the candidate you might vote Republican. Obama is the salve for this syndrome.

    What I want is a candidate who can stop saying they are representing the Republicans, or Democrats. It would be nice if they all realized that they shouldn't be representing their party-they should be representing everyone's party. Conservatives are too conservative, and Liberals are too liberal. I am really on the fence. The candidate covering the most bases seems to be Mike Huckabee. I have never voted Republican, but I am considering it, because he seems more independent in nature.

    I was a Clinton supporter through the 90's, but I have been disappointed in the Clinton behavior and attitude of the past few months. Obama has a depth of character and a sincerity that is foreign to the Clintons. He will get my vote.

    Well once again Caroline Kennedy came out from under her rock to support Obama. And Ted Kennedy the moral authority you know Mr. Right is telling us that he is the candidate of change. Ted should know. And Oprah who was in LA this last weekend telling the hispanics and blacks that Obama is their candidate. Where did Oprah build her school – oh yes Africa. I didn't see her in the projects in New York or East Los Angeles building schools for poor Hispanics or young black people. She did say our kids are to spoiled with their tennis shoes and their hip hop music and wouldn't appreciate the essence of what she was trying to do. Her mantra for years has been women, she makes all her money off women, it is women that have made her a millionaire, and we have for the first time in the history of the United States have a qualified woman running for President and who does Oprah support, a black man. What does that tell you about Oprah.

    Well, I see Obama helping John McCain because if he wins McCain will be the next President.

    It seems quite clear that now that Americans have heard Obama's message they are quite clear on whom should be the next president. Clinton Had the name regocnition fro so long Why won't the media stop trying to say what did Bill do to hurt Hillary .. Why not now that we've heard Obama we like everything about him ... Obama's getting his own votes..

    Why is that CNN does not talk about those who are in support of Clinton? Those of you who state that CNN is biased ... seems true to me. I will vote for Clinton tomorrow, because I know her caring of the people and children is true. I know she claims she'll do this that and the other, and I truly believe she will fight for us and what she believes in.. She will not be bought and can handle the Republicans. If she wins, and I hope she does, our country needs her, nothing wrong with Obama, he's just in to many pockets on both sides. Not a good thing, he can be swayed easily. I want Hillary, Bill made a big mistake during his Presidency, he got caught. Many other didn't They're not as clean as you think. BESIDES i'M NOT VOTING FOR HIM, ING For I am voting for Hillary, and I hope she wins and she will! go Hillary!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Clinton always answers the questions and doesn't dance around them like Obama. Also Obama and his people have been attacking Hillary since he won in SC Obama is the one that has the attitude. The news just doesn't show that because they are all biased towards Obama.

    Clinton you have my vote
