    I bet most of the people watching will support Obama, but they won't be old enough to vote or even registered... HAHA....

    any campaign that relies on votes from young people are kidding themselves... ask Al Gore, and especially, John Kerry!

    Interesting since Obama had declined to appear a few days ago.

    I have marked my calendar for today. This is the day when I said that, if Barack Obama is nominated and, by chance, wins the General Election, he will be one of those Presidents that everyone denies voting for when he finishes his term.

    Didn't obama say that he didn't want to be on colbert show? I guess he changed his mind. He wanted to send his wife originally.

    Some of posts over the past week have been so mean-spirited and self-absorbed that I've come to the conclusion that a lot of Republicans are posting phony hateful messages, pretending to be Democrats, just to try to set supporters for Clinton and Obama against each other. "Waaah – If my candidate doesn't win, I'll vote for McBush" ? Get normal, no Democrat would risk leaving the country in the hands of Ditto.

    Nice try but it won't work folks. When the decision is finally made, Democrats will focus solely on taking back our country from the corporate thieves, hate-mongers, and incompetent fools who only care about themselves.

    I'll look forward to seeing both excellent candidates on Colbert and ignore the media pressure to rush the democratic process to judgment!

    This guy is such an embarrasment. He's always copying Hillary. She was announced to appear on the show several days ago and Obama said he wouldn't be on the show. Now all of sudden he's going to do the show. I guess he wants to cry some more about the unfair debate. Poor baby!

    If Howard Dean wants a nominee now, what is the sense of having a nominating convention?

    Will Hillary and Bill accidentally become the Ralph Nader of this election? They did a lot of good work in the past. Even if they can't catch up in delegates, they do have a right to keep running, but will ego and need for attention help be that tiny difference, the tipping point, for Republicans to win the White House again.

    NObama is dull, and has no sense of self nor sense of humour.

    Dull, Dull, Dull.

    Go Hillary!!!!

    If he has strings attached, Rev. Wright can act as puppet master.
