    How is the surge now going McCain???????

    How come you're not all over the news telling us how the "surge is working".

    You can sing and dance all you like – it doesn't change the fact the conservatives have ruined the economy and given the US a bad name all over the world.

    Is this true?
    Every time she does this I shout at the TV, "Say it, Obama! Say that when she and her husband were having marital difficulties regarding Monica Lewinsky, who did she and Bill bring to the White House for 'spiritual counseling?' THE REVEREND JEREMIAH WRIGHT!"

    Discontinue your efforts McBush. Obama has already got that group covered. Not A Good Try.

    Why no comments about the pathetic speech he made about the civil right heroes to a crowd of about 100 mainly white men at the same time dissing Obama.

    That was a hoot – dancing to a gospel song. Most people in the Black Belt of Alabama normally vote Democratic

    At 71 years old it's a little too late for John McCain to learn a new dance. He's been dancing the same old tune for too long and he's too old to change. Vote Obama.

    McCain joined in a dance? C'mon, CNN. There was singing and hand clapping. He walked arm in arm with a black woman, and clapped six times, both uncomfortably. Cameras rushed to capture the staged moment. Seems like the audacity of hype to me.

    How can they do this with McCain, a man who has consistently voted against MLK holliday. Why don't the media drop this love fest with McCain and take him to task.

    I think McBush has taken to his heart, Obama's joke that the measure of a "brother" is his ability to dance. So to show African American that he is also a "brother", he is showing he can dance. LOL.

    perhaps if he had not fought a on eman battle in arizona against a public holiday for martin luther king he might have some credibility.

    even when he agreed, it was on the basis of tourism and not the cause itself.

    The Dems in PA can help the party by bringing this primary to a quick conclusion. That is, if they love the party and this nation over their support for Hillary. We all know who has the numbers regardless of how long this campaign goes on. Hillary's chances are so small that a vote for her is to encourage the party to continue to suffer under Hillary's need to win at all cost! T his is common sense, Hillary does not have the number of (a) pledged delegates and (b) popular votes to continue without making it easy for the Republicans to win the general election. I do not hate Hillary!!

    Have a chill pill AZM. This just looks like typical Republican pandering. The guy votes no for MLK day, thus insulting Afro-americans. Now he wants to look hip. He gets to kill two birds with one stone. He can he really cares about the black community and faith-based groups. That smile seems almost genuine. He's getting down. I guess the folks he's dancing with aren't agents of intelorance.

    Oh, I almost forgot. OBAMA '08 ! ! ! B-)
