    If it is not possible for Clinton to catch Obama in elected delegates, why is she still in the race?

    Obama has 30 victories in the primaries to Hillary's 14? She needs to bow out. Two words that Hillary needs to accept...It's Over!!

    Why should hillary back down and let Obama walk away with the nomination. We will see what happens if Florida and Michigan get a doover. Those states should have been counted anyway. And dont give me the Obama didnt campaign there. Neither did Hillary she just left her name on the ballet In something Obama could have done. Neither one have enough delegetes to win at this point. An Hillary has said congrats to Obama before, she was the first to say congrats to him on Super tuesday so give it a rest. The exit polls should be a wake up call to us democrates instead of throwing names at people democrates better get it together and thats not gonna happen by name calling

    The truth is finally out!!! Barack Obama supporters are wishy-washy and hyprocrits. If she doesnt say Congrats within the hour she is nasty and ungrateful and if she does then she is nasty and ungrateful. This is how Obama is winning, by double standards. He can be as nasty and hateful as he wants and hell always be a saint and Hillary can focus all her speeches on her plans for america and she will always be running a nasty campaign. Get a life I cant wait to see BO lose in November.

    Okay so Clinton by way of her campaign congratulates Obama for his win and Obama fans whine about it. If she didn't congratulate him, Obama fans would whine about it. Give me a break !!!

    A great man said. Politics favors the wealthy, the shameless, and the beautifull. Well, the Hillary monster has the first two of these attributes.

    Hillary doesn't have the guts to congratulate Obama herself because she's got too much of an ego. She just needs to bow out of the race and stop doing damage to the democratic party and this country. We need a leader not a do-anything, say-anything-to-win, dividing liar.

    HOPEFULLY, this "congratulations", coupled with the fact that Hillary did NOT win Texas after all, marks a turning point and we will see her dropping out of the race by the end of this week.

    Did I miss Obama playing the race card? How can he when he is biracial!!!! That would be black and white. You don't get to choose.

    Way to go Billary, way to send out your black campaign manager to protect your racist white financial adviser Ferraro. You make America sick! There is nothing you can do to steal this election.

    Scoreboard Obama

    Heather said: "Ron Paul is still the best possible choice."

    Ron Paul lost to Mike Huckabee, and Huckabee isn't even running anymore.

    Ron Paul has about the same chance of ever being President as Gene Amondson.
