  2. New Democrat

    I just wanted to state that I am a newly-registered Democrat and I am an Obama-supporter. I am very enthusiastically supporting Obama and I will be very disappointed if he does not get the nomination as I believe he is the better candidate and has the best chance of winning this Fall. However, with that said, I would certainly vote for Hillary if she wins the nomination – but only if she wins "fair and square." If Obama is ahead in every other category like he is now and then the superdelegates overturn the will of the people, then I will change my registration and no longer be a democrat and I will abstain from voting in the general election. This is not a threat but simply a statement of fact for myself. I could not vote for a candidate who would become the nominee in that way, nor could I be a member of a party that would allow such a thing to happen.

    Gee, you'd think all the supers would retract thier support and wait and see how the candidates sit in July.

    They shouldn't make that decision until after all the primaries are completed and they should wait to see what else comes out on either of these candidates!

    ATTENTION ALL DEMOCRATS: Everyone needs to realize the Democratic Party belongs to the Bill and Hillary Clinton. Stop fighting they can do and say what ever they want and when they want. They can change the rules when it’s necessary, they can lie, cheat, steal and commit election fraud as long as they are alive and in control. I repeat the Democratic Party belongs to them and know one I mean know one can stop them.

    Nobody has power or strength to stop them nobody. All other democrats have to do what they say when they say. The journalism in this country is horrible they are paid for and bought by the Clintons and the GOP. The media tells you how to vote and why you should vote a certain way. They get e-mails from the Clinton staff and give the media there talking points and just like puppets the media goes on the air and perform for her.

    When President Obama is sworn in in January, Hillary will still be running.

    What the matter...? ? Why can't Hillary "CLOSE THE DELEGATES"?? Maybe the see her true side rather than the PA voters whom were apparently blind!

    Me too, Eric.
    I'll bet Obama's total contributions for today were more than Clinton's.
    And if so, his campaign should let people know that.
    You can be sure the superdelegates and party leaders are watching these fundraising totals perhaps even more than the primary votes.

    I think clinton is disgusting – I think the clinton campaign is pulling some pretty dirty toilet water and even though I am a senior citizen I would never vote for he – She is another Bush type liar and sneaky burro!!!!!!!

    It's true Senator Obama closed Hillary lead from 26% to 9.2%. If we can see PA win from another aspect. Then, Senator Clinton should not brag about her win in PA because her lead was built from '90, over last 20 years. Senator Obama can cut the lead within 6 weeks. It's excellent job. 6 weeks vs 20 years.
    It's amazing. Who should question Senator Obama electability? Can anyone else do better than him?

    Pennsyvania was an anomaly for Clinton. It is a sytate that is stuck with the "old tired no change status qou" as Hillary is. Old people are stuck and are afraid of change. We need new blood to wash away the sins of the bush/cheney/republican/conservative debacle.

    Go Barak create a new America.

    yes we can!

    The people who are paying close attention can see how clinton is tearing apart the democrats. Even the NYtimes – who endorsed clinton – agree that she has gone off the deep end with her Karl Rove style campaign.

    All of the SuperD's need to find some backbone and come out of the closet. Those that do not are looking out for their best interest, not the Democratic party. If they had come out when it was obvious that the math wouldn't work for Hillary we wouldn't still be going through this exercise. This only shows me that they are pandering to the Clinton's. At this point they can only allow her to steal the nomination. Rules are rules and facts are facts.

    GREAT!!!!! This is a wonderful thing. Senator Obama is honest, believeable and trustworthy. One cannot say that about Hillary Clinton or her Husband. She has slandered Senator Obama and has just about destroyed the Democratic Party and along with President Bush and his Administration Destroyed America and my issue is Education, Gas and Health Care and Senator Obama is addressing this fact for all the people. Hillary Clinton does not care who she has to stomp on to get back into the WH that family just wants to get in at any cost even if she destroys the party she says she is in. We all must remember she used to be a Republican and she says that McCain and her are very good friends. What Say You! She Can't Be Trusted!

    I pray to God that Obama wins the nomination. If not I will not vote!
