    The question is not were all 3 broken into, but who broke into their own info to make it look like everyone was broken into.

    I don't understand why Hillary is getting so much grief for wanting the American people heard. Isn't that what voting is supposed to do? How can these things keep happening with the votes?

    California Independent and everyone else out there; I'm so sick of hearing about the Rev. Wright story. "He who is without SIN cast the first stone".

    If you have nothing to hide, who cares if they see something we already know.

    Good for you, SS. Thank you for calling a full-scale investigation. Let's waste our money and time on another triviality.

    My previous comment was meant for another subject. On this comment even though I am not for Obama or McCain, no one deserves to have their right to privacy violated.

    How much are we going to let the Bush administration get away with?

    It gets worse every day.

    Well, now this is going to really disappoint CNN.
    But I am sure they will find something else to overshadow the Wright’s hate comments.
    They were so hoping that this breach would only be concentrated on Obama.

    The State Department??? Isn't this Condi's domain??? And hasn't her name been bandied about on a couple of occasions as 2nd place on a ticket with McCain??? Keep your eyes and ears open on this one, fellow Americans!!!

    Once again, HRC is trying to pull a fast one.

    Both Michigan and Florida were fully aware that holding their primaries early carried consequences. Both states chose to ignore the rules and now they want to be an exception to those rules.

    Contrary to popular belief, rules are not made to be broken. We have rules and regulations to follow in order to keep everything decent and in order.

    Clinton knows this but she also has something to gain from these two states.

    This was a plan by Hillary to deviate suspicion from herself. When Obama decided to run she sent someone to look at her file first to cover her tracks and bring Obamas file up to see if anything is a weapon against Obama or McCain.

    I don't trust the Clintons one bit. She did it!

    People–your comments are embedded in racism. Keep working to divide the country. Good job.

    Come on people. This is a case of a few bored government clerks looking up significant names. If the truth be told, I bet Nicole Smith, Tom Cruise, and PeeWee Herman were also looked at. Its a non-issue, all three candidates were looked at. Sure came at an oprtune time for Obama though. Get us all to forget Wright and typical white.
