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.

    I wonder if all the Hillary supporters heard about her request, for $2.3Billion in earmarks for the year 2009? Do you know what she plans to do with this huge sum of Your Country's Dollars? She plans on spending most of it in her home state New York, not Pennsylvania, Indiana, North Carolina or any of the other states that she is pretending to care about! If you don't believe me check this out on huff post!!!!! No that is not a typo. it really is $2.3Billion not Million.

    Obama is not mature enough, complex enough, experienced enough, tested enough, or been around the block enough to run the USA. Hillary is. End of discussion.

    Okay- On the other hand Hilliary is 60 years old- like Bill said she 60 and was tired and mis-spoke about the Sniper fire. She was misinformed about the young lady who died because was denied treatment at the hospital, she was not for Nafta but supported it, her Chief Campaign Strategist MP was lobbying for Colombia. She voted for the killing of the 4000+ fine American young men in Iraq..

  3. Celebration

    Less than 280 delegates seperate Obama from the nomination...
    We need a big celebration on May 7th. Then we move on to McCain...
    Moveon.org already started the general election campaign and although they support Obama, but they skipped Hillary and moved directly to McCain...
    Great job
    Yes we can.....

    Not a blogger... just too darn old.

    But, I peruse, to see the spin.

    Obama supporters don't have a clue. They think that just repeating something over and over makes it true. Just like Obama.

    And their biggest spin seems to be their belief that they are educated and intelligent.

    Never have I seen so much ignorance expressed so poorly. I think you are pretending to be something you are not. Just like your candidate.

    If the worst thing the Republicans can find on Obama are comments made by his Pastor, (can you see the silliness here?) we will win in November and Obama will be our next president!!!!!! Yeah!!!!!!!!!!

    The smart superdelegates are holding back, waiting to see when the next shoe drops with Obama. I would imagine some of the supers who have declared for Obama wish they hadn't.
