Superdelegate deluge

(CNN) - The superdelegate deluge continued Wednesday afternoon with the announcement of two new endorsements.

Luisette Cabanas, an unpledged superdelegate from Puerto Rico, is backing Hillary Clinton. California Rep. Lois Capps is supporting Barack Obama. (Capps is the mother-in-law of Obama Press Secretary Bill Burton.)

So far, the Clinton campaign has released the names of four new superdelegate supporters in the last 24 hours, and the Obama campaign has named five.

    Are people at all concerned that if Barack becomes Pres. the negative effect the Wright controversy will have on him & the Demo party. Now that Obama has denounced him Wright will enjoy writing a bestseller or two about his 20 year relationship with the Obama family. Obama & the Democrats will be the subject of ridicule for years.

    Wish my mom would abort her vote for obama. Similar to how Obama would like abortion available to his children should they make a mistake. No christians will vote for Obama this fall.

  3. Clinton and Obama supporters

    We must win this election...who ever it is. Stop the bashing. Both candidates are better than George Bush...so why are we fighting. Wake up. The republicans want to have us divided. Either way, have hope that this country can get out of this mess we are in.

    God bless america and help us beat John Mccain.

    Look the demarcated party knows who they want in the White House and it isn't the Clintons. The Clintons are trying to force their way into the White House, the DNP has viewed the Clintons as devises and can not bring about the change in foreign policy. They are looking forward to working with Barack on his foreign policy to bring the United States back around because the United States need allies in the region. This thing is much larger than the U.S. even though that is one of the DNP to turn this economy around for the people.

  10. tuff Col. Oh

    how can someone call obama divisive when he's the only candidate who speeks on ending diviseness, i have yet to hear hillary or john mccain speak those words, maybe because they are the ones who are out of touch with the blue collar black/white workers, they were born with silver spoons in there mouth

    Mr. Rove still thinks he's President. A plea to the press: please stop encouraging him.

    as the countdown continues, it appears that even Democrats are weary of the lies that will come from another Clinton presidency.

    I keep hearing and reading about voting for records. There have been MANY presidents who have had records and yet have no true leadership. I want to vote for integrity, values, and a continued guidance for our country to move in the right direction. Name one President who has not show bad judgement at one time or another. ALL CANDIDATES HAVE AND WILL CONTINUE TO. Stop being naive and short-sided just to have your way. Hillary may have a record but she has yet to truly lead with honesty, integrity, and within a value-system I would approve of. Speaking of values...why would you want to overturn a nomination built on the rules you agreed to and promised to follow? Isn't that this the reason why Civil Rights for all people were fought for...to ensure those who were deserving no matter their background would get the opportunity they worked for "by the rule"? Women...you all should know this as much as anyone.

    This campaign season has been so ridiculous, Clinton should have stepped down months ago before if came to this...now we will probably have to take this mess to the convention.

    Obama is the ONLY candidate that has been FULLY tested and tried, having to fan off all of the negative attacks of Hillary and the news media alike especially FOX New Network.

    OBAMA ALL THE WAY!!!!!

    As of April 24th 20 Superdelegates were ready to endorse Obama.
    The first was the Oklahoma Gov.- -Can't remember his name.
    I believe Obama has received 5 or 6 since him. So that means he has13 or 14 left in the kitty. They will be dripping out between now and the NC /IN primaries

    I admire the blogs from the supporters of Senator Obama. However, most of you folks are just too emotional. If you guys really love America, please reconsider your support. If Senator Obama is the democratic party nominee, he will surely lost the general elections to Senator McCain. Lets all support Senator Hillary Clinton who has a very good chance of winning the general elections. One more thing. Have you guys seen the latest polls showing that Senator Clinton is leading John McCain by nine points.

    Hillary Clinton 2008 and 2012 – Solutions not cheap talk!

    Obama is neither authentic nor credible. Wright is right. Obama just says what he has to say as a politician.

    Obama obviously knew all about Jeremiah Wright and his ideology for 20 years. Also, from Barack's comments in San Francisco and Michelle's comments they both agreed with their pastor to a large degree. Then, there is the fact that they have continued there with their two young daughters.

    Interestingly, Obama was most angry about Wright's comments about him. Sounds like an arrogant, narcissistic chip off the old block!
