Wisconsin voters brave cold; Hawaii voters enjoy warm weather

(CNN) - Voters in the latest battlegrounds for the Democratic presidential nomination faced very different treks to polls and caucuses Tuesday. Wisconsin voters braved single-digit temperatures and a windchill advisory while Hawaii caucus-goers expected to enjoy temperatures in the 80s.

Both groups will shape the course of the tight race between Democratic Sens. Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, while Wisconsin and Washington state voters could help Sen. John McCain finally knock his last major rival out of the Republican race.

    With all the news that Hillary let out the day before the election
    about Obama and his friend Deval Patrick, maybe some people
    will vote for Hillary instead of Obama. Look folks, this is exactly
    why Hillary announced that the night before the primaries. Obama
    in April stated to the BOston Globe that he was friends with Deval
    and that they exchange ideas. Hillary has seen that what Obama
    says, works and she copies and then attacks Obama. It's just
    unbelievable. Her character remains to be scrutinized, not by
    anyone but the voters. Are we stupid???OBAMA for Wisconsin, D.C.
    Hawaii, Texas etc.

  9. anthony for hillary

    a vote for BARACK is a vote for DEFEAT in november.

    GO HILLARY!!! she's tested and ready to continue leading. just ask the majority of NEW YORKERS who elected her – TWICE – to the senate.

    contrary to the endless spin in the MSM, mrs. clinton is the only real hope democrats have this year.

    Michelle Obama made a mistake in words. Basically, I believe
    that she is a good person. How long are we going to drag this
    one on.Forever.Maybe we can send her to prison. Our country
    certainly has a way of blowing things up. Please, people this is ridiculous.

    I hope Wisconsin voters and all Americans will open their eyes and realize a "Bush" or "Clinton" has ruled this country for the past 25 years! We are in desparate need of change, and OBAMA will pave the way for a new America!

    We have a viscious woman running for presidency. I wish we had a better choice to represent us. This is sad.

    God is on Barrack's side, he will win all remaining primaries by God's grace!

    Hillary always makes these sleaze attacks the day before an election.

    She's shameless, and will do and say anything to win.

    She's looking more and more like Bush each day ....

    I think that people are smarter than Hillary thinks they are. At the very least Hillary, you had no right to pick up the first stone and throw it at Obama.....can you say "Yes we can" one more time for you loyal followers?

    When you give Obama a glowing campaign ad about his youth (growing up in Hawaii) why don't you give equal time to Hilary Clinton about her upbringing and college years? It seems that the only thing you find interesting about her is "Wild Bill". Hasn't anyone at CNN read her book? There's a lot of inspirational material there ( at least to another woman) that could make for some positive comments once in awhile. The bashing and sexism in the media is really getting old!

    For the first time you are proud of the country? Forget about the coldwar or how we have liberated countries

    Please Wisconsin, don't buy into Hillary's negative banter. Her campaign has done several things in the past few days are mirror the type of campaign run by Karl Rove. Up until yesterday, I respected Hillary. Now, I'd rather vote for McCain. At least he doesn't take part in the negative politics.
    Hillary borrows phrases from her husband, she borrows phrases from Obama. Did she give credit to Obama when she said "let's turn the page" and "I'm fired up and ready to go?"

    Why are you not even investagating this guys claim against mr obama. If this was the clintons it would be all over the news. If larry sinclare has staded he would take a lie dector test I think you should at least hear this guy out. Please view this guy You Tube conffesion. He is claiming that he had oral sex with Mr obama and did crack cocain. I can deal with the drugs as teen but he was a us senator at this time.

    The us presidecy can not endore this embarsment in the exc branch again. Please look into this. It would be ashame that this story hit the media right before the presidetial elections and the democrats loose the white house.

    Why does Hillary always pull a dirty trick the day before a election?

    I really wish the news media would have given Senator Obama's SISTER in Hawaii as much attention as they gave to Chelsea. Obama's sister is a very intelligent woman and Chelsea won't even speak to the media- go figure!

    Obama '08
