    After hearing Obama's speech, I will vote only for Obama.
    Even if these papers show Hillary had only one year of true experience, I don't want anymore of her lies and dishonest ways.
    She's ruining this country.

    The documents may not find anything incriminating, but will definitely point out that the only expereince she got while first lady, was picking out the White House christmas tree – and not negotiating peace in Northern Ireleand or anything else of high level relevance.

    This is funny. Barack Obama wants Republicans to vote in the Democratic primary???

    Does Barack Obama know that Republicans are strong with regard to their love of country and that, after watching Barack Obama defending his church minister who appears to have been preaching hate and what many view as ANTI-AMERICAN sentiments from the pulpit, he is unlikely to get any Republican votes. Rather, I think people, including Republicans, will vote for Hillary Clinton to keep him from having ANY chance of getting into the Oval Office.

    The Republicans already cleaned up the closets of the Clintons for years. Obama still have many skeletons to show the country. The Wright fiasco, the porks for University of Chicago Hospitals, where his wife is the VP (on leave). True bonanza for the Republicans.

    Can we please see Obama's schedule for the last 12 years? I'd like to understand his 130 present votes in the Illinois Senate and his mediocre record as a US Senator? And can I please see as many tax returns as you are demanding of Clinton?That will help me believe Obama is really willing to be transparent.

    "The wisdom of judgement" words of Senator Obama today describing the vote to go to war which by now we all know he voted against but Senator Clinton voted for pales by a twenty year vote Sunday after Sunday after Sunday of not getting up from his pew and walking from his church. Can you imagine if he deplores all that he has heard over the years the weekly explanation and confusion to his children. You know the curriculum in Sunday school if his girls attended was tilted in the same direction as the church.Yes he did not choose his grandmother but he did choose his reverand. His wisdom of judgement now scares me.

    These Clinton Haters are so funny. They should really watch their words, alot of what they say is offensive. Not to mention, if Hillary gets the nomination or wins the Presidency, there will be alot of back tracking and denial on past inappropriate comments. Reminder here, we are trying to stop the hate. The same people that say racism, sexism and ageism is a big issue, are the same people causing the hate, causing the divide. Be more thoughtful on your responses then a knee jerk reaction remarks.

    I hope people leave her alone for a while! I don't get this, why the media and the Obama maniacs are not asking him to release his records? Can anyone please tell me?

    To those beggining for party reconcillation I commend you. However, I am an independent voter supporting Hillary Clinton. The DNC has done to many stupid things for me to support them should Obama be the nominee, but I wish you all luck with your party's success.

    Thruogh the word of God, that men are not perfect.

    We learn to forgive and forget. Slavery was not nice and yet we live together, fight together and in some cases die together.

    America is greater than the sum of it's parts. \

    Let us rise up and work together and restore America to her greatness.

    Go Obama..

    Maya – yes we know if he did or did not, he was asked about specific sermons he did not hear them (surpirse sometimes a representative/senator will miss a church service as part of their job) so he did not hear those specific sermons, he did , however, state he had heard similar speeches. Now for those of you who are calling the church racist I defy you to stand there and tell me your church has never said a racist thing. I grew up a southern baptist (as an older adult I have since converted to Catholicism) and I heard similar things, from the opposite perspective, spoken EVERY SUNDAY in those churches so do not get so holier than thou.. the fact is folks the people of Mr. Wright's generation WERE and to a large part STILL ARE racist, on both sides, so do oyu suggest we do not follow the bible and honor or fathers and mothers (who are, afterall from that generation)? Believe it or not, with the exception (apparently) of the radical right, most people can hear something spoken by a pastor and not automatically believe it is the perfect truth, most people can still respect someone without agreeing with everything they said.. where I am from we call that being an adult.. I guess that makes me one of the Obama cult? rigggggght

    We are so tired about hearing what people are saying about the Pastor and his remarks about Hillary and his views!!! She has on numberous occasions and still trying and I know won't stop trying to bash Obama.. You are on the same team, just different views.

    Stop the hatred and just know that all people are entitled to their opinions. Just becuase something is said, doesn't mean all is in argreement..

    I am so proud to be an American and with Obama heading us, I beleive we would wind up in the right direction. (CHANGE IS KEY< AND A MAJOR FACTOR for all of us). The world views he had to oppose upon us before we were even ready to deal within this at this segment of our lives (racism). This only shows us this is what is needed and people need to be able to accept us for what we are, what we know, how we do certain things and how we live. We are all products of God and some have more obstacles then others to bear...

    Let him judge and make this a smart campaign!!! Let's help the people and stop the hating.........

    I am glad some documents were released and that CNN is reviewing them. I bet you won't find anything of much interest or relevance, because these docs were released to placate the public and bolster Hillary's claim of transparency.

    Let's see something of substance for a change. Not a diversion, not a smokescreen – recent tax returns would be good, donor records, if complete, would also be informative.

    Hillary is so busy, though, we probably won't see any additional records released until April 23rd, at the earliest. How anyone could vote for her is beyond me.

    To Hillary supporters, can you please say something about your educational background before posting and calling Obama a lier and other insulting remarks. Example: I'm currently attending college.

    Do you really think Hillary would care about "every vote counting" if she didn't need them so badly? She will do anything to win, and this is just the latest ploy to gain votes. I wish she would just get out and stop dividing the party; if McCain wins in November Dems can and should blame Hillary Clinton.

    Wow. CNN will scour documents to find anything on Clinton just to take the heat off Obama. Only Obama could sit in a church for 20 yrs with his mentor spewing anti-American and racist sermons, have him as one of his campaign spiritual advisors, and get free air time on national tv with a presidential back drop to give a 37 min speech on himself and his views and his lies. Then he and the DNC want to alienate all the voters in Michigan and Florida b/c he's scared he will lose in a revote. If McCain or Hillary did any of this stuff their political careers would be over.

    Michigan and Florida will go Republican in November. Good job Democrats. You are such morons. The media is so biased they forgot how to report the news with both sides commentary. Great. 4 more years of Bush style politics. Thanks a lot. Losers.

    What's the point? These documents will only demonstrate the fact that she was just the "first lady", and I use first lady lightly..... Let's see the tax records.........that's the meat and potatoes of Hillary and Bill.

    Obama supporters wouldn't be putting so much pressure on Hillary to release these documents and their tax returns if they weren't hoping to find some mud/dirt to throw around to cloud the issue about who is the better candidate. Obviously he needs something to direct attention away from the scandulous speeches of his "mentor". Neither he nor his wife and children certainly weren't faithful church goers if he was unaware of these hate filled sermons.
    And, not rich, etc., with $900,000.00 on his tax return and a wife making $120,000.00 a year? Obama supporters and CNN need a reality check.
