    The way things are going in these Primaries and with the choices available, I have a tough time voting for any of these candidates. OBAMA and CLINTON (cannot believe anything they say) McCain (good guy but might be a little too old).

    Why? Seems premature.

    One thing is certain. Gordon Brown will not ask questions about their pastors or about the stories they told about landing on a Bosnian runway long ago. Too bad we can't watch broadcasts of these interviews instead of that idiotic ABC "Debate" that asked questions about the most irrelevant matters and whose "moderators" failed to lead the candidates into unfolding their plans to deal the complicated issues that face all of us. Of course, the candidates cooperated in the game–Hilary in making skillful attacks, Obama and Clinton both in giving trimmed down versions of stump speeches.

    Mr. Brown will see through Sen. Obama and give his (private) nod to Clinton.

    His country has seen what Muslim extremeism can do and will not tolerate any type of extremeism from an American who has been milk fed on Rev. J. Wright's brand.

    I agree with the majority of the posts. The PM could make much better use of his 45 with Sen. Clinton, by visiting a Star Bucks. She doesn't have a chance and should gracefully bow out for the good of the party.

    No need for Hillary or McSame to bother.

    Obama will be our next president.

    Why would he meet with Obama, he's the biggest liar of all 3 candidates and he doesn't stand a chance in November.

    Here is one question I want the candidates to ask the resident of No 1 Downing street: Are the British ready to compensate Africa and America for slavery, colonization and exploitation?

    It's good for the brits and Americans to talk about "helping" but when can we talk about giving them what is due these countries and people?

    If he doesn't bend over and kiss Hillary's jack boots, her bots (aka Howard Wolf-boy Wolfson) will take out attack ads because clearly he would be against all women if he didn't obey her.....right???

    The British PM could help Obama with his tendency to "mis-speak" English and wind up insulting the voters of Pennsylvania.

    Maybe Dubya is meeting with the British PM to learn the language?

    I want congress to ask Mr. Obama to step out of the race, AND down from the U.S senate, He is a disgrace to the American people! I also say to Hillary and McCain supporters to boycott, Time magazine, and all their partner companys, I have started this in my state. They are showing their anti-american agenda by supporting Obama. I hope cnn has the credibility to post this.

    I hope meeting with the British, goes well with Sen. Obama. "Yes we can"

    The British PM could probably help Obama with that problem of "mis-speaking" simple English and winding up belittling the voters' religious faiths and constitutional values.

    Maybe Dubya is meeting Brown to learn his language.

    Hope HRC will not tell us a day after that she met British prime minister under sniper fire to demonstrate her forein Policy experience.She is capable of saying anything to clich the nomination. Who knows meeting Gordon under sniper fire might help!!!
    Come on HRC and your sniper rhetorics!!!

    I will just add a comment here because CNN won't post mine anywhere else.. CNN I hope you enjoyed the debate last night, I know you are all rooting for Obama and I know you know he got his butt kicked last night. Let's not forget, most of Obama's supporters had NEVER EVEN HEARD HIS NAME before last fall. Wait til we learn more–and expose it–about this shady character 🙂

    It would be great for him to comment on how effective a leader he think either will be with foreign relations. We all know who that is, but I doubt the media would release the truth.
