    I totally agree the Rules are Rules we dems need to quit bickering. Yes it is unfortunate that we had 3 great candidates this election but lets face it do we really want bush Jr in office? The war will never end with McCain and more innocent people will die. We need to support the party regardless of who wins.

    I agree that Obama and Hillary supporters should be more respectful, but Hillary is fighting Barack unfairly. She knows that he wants to run a clean campaign, and so she throws the kitchen sink at him.

    That's why Obama supporters have to be more agressive online, because HILLARY won't fight fair.

    So if she is going to run a slash-and-burn campaign, we're going to give her a hard time.

    I also don't like her disloyalty to the DNC, and her loyal Democratic base.

    If Hillary lightens up on Barack, we will lighten up online. So if you support Hillary ask yourself about her character, which by the way, Hillary supporters never talk about her character, instead of focussing on Barack.

    I know CNN is looking for something to take the heat off Obama. Nothing will beat Rev Wrightgate.
    Looks like McCain is going to be president (if Hillary is not the nominee).
    Hope the superdelegates use their common sence as the rules say they should (independent thinking).
    Thanks to Obama we now have a Black vs White race. Guess who will win?.

    many democrats have historically not believed in the concept of "the media" as an agenda holder. Watching coverage here has been enough to convince me that, for a variety of reasons, the media all to often becomes a participant rather than an observer. On this topic – if there are questionable things in the record, don't bury it; if there are not, don't be silent. Do what you do – observe and comment neutrally, son't manufacture or ignore stories

    This election is a reality show....WHO CARES ABOUT HER TAXES AND DOCUMENTS?

    All politicians lie.....voters just need to figure out the lesser of 3 evils at this point.

    I am glad Hillary is doing this, now we can see all she did as First Lady and why she is more then qualified to be our next President.

    I am so tired of Obama and his speech and his race issues that I will gladly pay for his plane flight back to Chicago so he can return to being an community activist. Just get him out of my sight – please.

  10. Took my comment out on MIchigan CNN????

    Now there is going to a big deal about Hillary's schedule and tax returns. How come no one of Obama's supporters cares that Florida and Michigan will lose their vote? If the shoe were on the other foot all of you would be screaming at the top of your lungs. Shame on Obama for not agreeing to have their votes count. I thought from hes speech yesterday he wanted to be a healer and not a divider. Off to poor start Obama.

    It's laughable when the Obama campaign asks for tax returns when all he's done is make public his last couple of tax returns while the Clintons have over 20 years of tax returns made public.

    The Clinton team said they will be released on April 15. I see no reason why she should release them earlier just because Obama is being a whiny baby about it.

    List of donors is a matter of privacy for the donors. I'm glad the Clintons have some sense of privacy for their supporters rather than releasing lists just to appease some people who think they're frauds.

    Gimme a break! All this asking for taxes and donors is distracting from the real issue of the economy and the war – the issues you know that Hillary is better equipped to address, rather than Obama who will probably just make another pretty speech.

    This was the least of the four requests I wanted to see. I want to see her and Bill's tax filings(see how much Dubai is paying them for influence), Clinton Library Donor Lists (selling presidential pardons), and her earmark pork requests(to see what Lobbyists she is involved with) in that order.

    Very good. It is obvious due to the volume of the information that she has a lot of experience. She was had a much more active role than the typical first lady during her terms. Hopefully, this will put a lot of speculation to end and we can continue on to the nomination of the first woman President!

  14. SHE LEADS

    I think it is good that we will able to see what she accomplished in the White House as First Lady.

    Democrats need to rally behind Hillary, now that Barack will be vilified for the rest of the campaign by the Republicans.

    Do you see why Clinton stayed in the race now?

    The right will use Wright to get McCain in the W.H.

    Hmmm...the National Archives can release 11,000 documents today but Hillary can't release her joint tax returns since becoming a senator, or her congressional earmarks, or the Clinton Library donor list? What is she and Bill hiding?!?!

    Now let's see what her actual experience entailed.

  19. April

    She didn't complain about Michigan and Floridia, until it was TOO late.. She was the only one on the ballot,and she wasn't supposed to be! She is not following the rules, and now she is blaming Barack. It's not going to work!!! As for this situation. YEAH WHERE ARE HERE TAXES, and why don't Clinton supporters ask valid questions? Instead they take every thing she says as 'gold'... By watching The Clinton Chronicles, a film made independently BEFORE she ran for nomination, making it obsolete as 'propaganda'... any fool would know better than to vote for any Clinton. Hillary is a liar... Or GO watch "Hillary Clinton: It's All A Lie"... made by a former Clinton Supporter!!!

    Find the Truth Before you Hire another Bush to do the Job!!!

    There will no news in these documents being released, because Hillary really didn't do anything while being a First Lady.

    We need tax returns for the past 6 years. Period.

    Good, maybe this will put a end to Hillary's critic's calling for proof of her experience. It a shame some of the documents have re-edits and other information crossed out. CNN says it is currently reviewing the documents and I'm sure other news agencies are too. Hopefully we will get the jist of her co-presidency years experience before the Pennslyvania primary. Eleven thousand pages huh, The Clinton's are skilled at illusions and its great the Clinton Team saw the documents first before the news agencies. I smell a Clinton ploy with the release of these pages, they don't let anything out without a calculated reason. Lou Dobbs, read those pages good buddy!

  22. PA for Obama

    Hillary is feeling unusually confident and arrogant. Her lethal political operatives are up to something in PA. They are making sure that she wins by hook or by crook. Help America get on a healthier track by ridding us of Hillary. Invesitgate the Archives and don't limit your investigation to the boundaries set by the Clinton operatives.

    Let the dumpster diving begin! I can see the media flipping through the documnets now slicing and dicing to find the dirtiest angles possible. I wouldn't be surprise if we see headlines later today or tomorrow about what HIllary's eating and shopping habits. It still amazes me how fearful the media is with a strong female candidate. The more they tried to buried her, the stronger her will and tenacity is and the more I'm convinced that this woman's got what it takes to be the next president of the United states. Hillary for President!

    Hillary didn't release these out of the goodness of her heart, I believe a Conservative group has to sue for the right to have these files released from the National Archives. This is only a fraction of what they are still after.

    These will show nothing, Camp Clinton will cherry-pick out dates and meetings with important people and Camp Obama will point to just what groups/lobbyists had access to the First Lady.

    I do not want to see her schedule, I want to see her actual foreign policy accomplishments that she has so clearly stated makes her the best qualified candidate for president. Where are the actual documents that back up her touted claims of resolving foreign national secutiry matters? Oh yes, I remember they will not be released until some time in November after the election. How convienent!! I am laughing so bad I cant continue.
