The popular vote debate

[cnn-photo-caption image= http://i.l.cnn.net/cnn/2008/POLITICS/04/24/campaign.wrap/art.clinton.vote.gi.jpg caption="If Michigan and Florida are counted, Sen. Hillary Clinton is ahead in the popular vote."] (CNN) - Sen. Hillary Clinton is arguing that she is ahead of rival Sen. Barack Obama when it comes to the popular vote.

"I'm very proud that as of today, I have received more votes by the people who have voted than anyone else," Clinton said Wednesday, one day after her decisive win in Pennsylvania.

Not so fast, says Obama's campaign. Clinton's count includes her wins in Michigan and Florida, but the Democratic presidential candidates agreed not to campaign in those states because they violated party rules by scheduling their contests too early.

    I love all the drama. It's great to sit back to watch, listen, and laugh at what is happening to these to democrats. It doesn't matter who gets elected president anyway. There isn't anyone person that can change your life besides you. Stop sitting around on a computer and go do something with your lives. Go to church, go to school, start a business, and stop waiting for the government to solve your problems. Stop being so mad. No one can make you mad, you can only decide if you're mad.

    Why or why does everyone think Obama is the greatest candidate ever? What is he going to change? Someone please tell me! Promises what he thinks you want to hear and can't take any criticism at all. I am still in awe that he took his two daughters to church and had them listen to the awful comments made by the preacher. They will grow up with this kind of nonsense embedded in their mind. Have him explain himself on that one. The commentators are all for him no matter what he does or says. I simply can't believe people can't see that he will get absolutely nothing changed. YES WE CAN! Can what? Everyone would like to see some changes made to health care, oil prices, grocery prices, etc., but this is something that Obama can do nothing about – so why is everything he says "gospel" to so many people. He is so transparant. Seems to have a little of a temper too, which will not be good for the leader of this great country of ours! Someone should ask him the tough questions and see what his answers are. Exactly what will he do, besides CHANGE?
