    From what I've read so far, she attended a lot of dinners, luncheons, flights around the country and she went to the ballet. Not much in the way of executive experience so far...........

    I can't believe the Democratic Party has messed things up so much. If the voters of Florida and Michigan are disenfranchised, the Party will be viewed around the world as the most inept party ever. If cousel was involved in the decision to take away the right of the voter to vote, they should be fired from the DNC. Who in their right mind would not want full participation in this process? Get your act together and allow Florida and Michigan to vote and take responsibility for the poor decision you made to exclude voters because of the incompetence of party officials who made this stupid decision based on the states who wanted to have a greater affect on the primary process.

    Very impressive experience related to food..dining and tea parties. I believe Hillary has a great experience in different food in more than 80 countries. understanding different type of foods will help in understanding foreign affairs and conflicts and international relations.

    Well done and taste good Hillary.

    Obama is a whiner and a loser.

    Yep, picking out china and placemats for State dinners makes her qualified for Commander-in-Chief. Her SOCIAL ENGAGEMENTS were vital to the nation's security – NOT!

    Most CEO wives have more "experience" than Hillary.

    Good grief!

    These people complaining about the release of so many documents need to do a little research. Hillary Clinton is not in direct control of all the papers from her tenure as first lady. The National Archives are in charge of reviewing and releasing those documents. Educate yourselves!

    Also, is Obama ready to release the last 20 years of his tax returns? Because that is what is out there for Hillary and Bill Clinton. The only one that is missing so far is 2006. So Obama doesn't really have a reason to be complaining about transparency until he releases all his tax returns from his years in gov't service.

    Find something real to complain about people!

    This is a joke; she is going to only reveal what she wants us to see. We the American people have to wake up before it is too late. Why is it that the news organizations don't release the ongoing scandals involving the Clintons this very moment? Is it because you’re waiting until they are elected into the Whitehouse or is it that they made promises to CNN to provide them first dibs on worthy news. I can't believe any coverage on the ongoing lawsuit or Bill Clintons dealings overseas. What gives? Where is the fair and balanced reporting? By the way if race is an issue I am a white male CEO of a company in New England.

    I have not seen my posting. I have aired my views of this election. This is free speech. The only way that the democrats will win the election is if Hillary is the norminee. No one in their right mind (ie) the suprdeleates wil truthfully vote for Obama. He oes not have the qualities to be a good president.

    Obama has to try and focus on issues that Hillary has no control over.
    Documents are released Happy Obama?
    What about the 300.000 dollars he under paid to Tony Rezko for the property he bought from him?
    Why aren't we asking questions about that?

    Stan- re Hillary's voters on education, I'm an educated RN in NC, we haven't voted yet by the way, I have a Business degree, pursuing an MBA and may possibly go on to law school. How's that for education??? I also keep well informed as to what's going on in politics and the economy, blogs and have for 20+ years. I know fakes and empty words when I see them.

    Obama said there's no talk between his aides and Canadian official, then a week later he had to acknowledge the meeting did occur after the Canadian govt shown the document to prove that. His foreign affair adviser told our European allies not to take Obama's talk of withdrawal of our troop in Iraq seriously as they're only campaign talk. Obama last week denied he had any knowledge that his pastor made devisive, anti-American sermon. Now he said he did. All the above incidents happened within a month time. He claims he is honest and he is the new kind of politics. I think the facts and truths speak for itself.

    Let’s be real. Hillary cannot logically win this nomination using conventional means. Her only option now is to land a KO. She will use every Clintonian wizardry to land a KO on Obama. She hasn’t succeeded so far, and she never will. The only thing she is going to accomplish is to leave a battered and bruised Obama to fight McCain. At this moment Clinton is the best Republican.

    I think Obama had every right to complain... He was honest with the public, he put the cards on the table. If Hillary messed up everyone should know, just like if Obama messed up every one should know!

    When will Obama release all of his tax returns? He only release one year so far. Hillary releases financial and tax information every year as US Senator.

    What Obama really wants is to know how much Bill makes giving speaches and who he speaks to.

    Apparently Obamabots are deaf . Tax Returns will release after April 15, 2008 . After Tax. Obama should release all his taxes from all the years he was a Professional. Common obama you need tp be transparent.

    Hey "Rules are Rules," I thought this election was about putting the best candidate in the White House, not any particular party. If the Dems put forward the third best candidate (of the remaining major party candidates), that candidate will not get my vote.

    Obama, Release all your records: appointments, meetings, trips, fund raisers, all legislation you worked on. Also ALL financial records showing all campaign contributions you received including those from Rezko and Exelon. And detailed records of the fundraisers held by Rezko in his private home for you. And don't forget to include your tax returns for the last 18 years. Be sure to include donations you made to charity and name the charities. Which charity did you give your Rezko donations to? I understand you contributed $25,000 in 2006 to your racist church. How much in 2007 and how much during each year before?

    One more point I would like to make. After Geraldine Ferrao made her controversial comment, Obama immediately came out and said her comments were divisive and ultimately forced Ferrao to resign. If Obama feels so strongly against raicsts comments, how come he could go to Wright's church for 20 years and his sermons are much provocative and divisive. He certainly made a eloquent speech about race yesterday, but he made it only after he's confronted by the media and public.

  21. oh please

    I love that Justin reviewed "20 pages" and called Sen. Clinton a liar. 8 minutes after release, 20 pages out of 11,000...what's that? Like 0.01% of the documents? Way to go Einstein!

    Hillary has pushed harder for taxes to be released than Obama ever has

    If people are going to believe that Hillary's records are doctored in some way, then why are all of these people pushing to have them released? If they find something questionable, the Obama lovers will jump right on it. If nothing is found, it will be because the records were "edited". It's all so convenient.
