    With all of the Hillary emphasis on Michelle Obama's comments about finally being proud to be an American, let's ask her, Hillary, to explain her comments last nigh about "once we start acting like mericans again." Just when did I or the other 150 million + US citizens stop acting like Americans, at least as far as she is concerned?

    She needs to save the little change she has (if any) to pay her debts. I know she is a Clinton, and that they don't bow out without a fight. But she should be smart enough to know this is over. No magic can turn this around anymore, not even 5 more Rev. Wright episodes! The party's unity should not be compromised.

    If I were West Virginia I would be pissed. HRC continues to show that she ONLY thinks you are important if she feels that your state will count during the primaries.

    If she claims she is fighting to the end, why not try and at least make one stop in every state. How do you say "I want your vote" and you can't even come to my state and talk to me.

    Now all of a sudden b/c she is grasping at straws and Tuesday's primaries was a "game changer" as she expected but yet in favor of Obama, West Virginia is important.

    The effort now seems to be futile for 'Hillary'; nevertheless she has been an extra ordinary candidate, and it shows how split the democratic party is now between two best democratic candidates.

    The performance by 'Obama' was just remakable; his speech the best I ever heard; he appeared very presidential. He is the candidate who will join the nation let alone democrats.

    While she "soldiers on", she continues to split the Democratic party. By attempting, to once again, changes the numbers, she splits the party. By her own lust for power, she continues to split the party. The party is over, and it is time for her to exit gracefully..Obama 08

    You can do it Hillary...they are going to have to count FL and MI!!

    Obama will NEVER win the General Election.

    The Democrats will never come together. I, as a life long Democrat will vote for McCain. We have already had 8 years of a President that didn't know anything. We sure as heck don't need another just like him!!

    GO HILLARY!! 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂

    She should drop out , it's hard to see how she could win the nomination. Foe the best of the party the sd should back Obama. This race is allready too long.

    Please tell Hillary to stop taking money from hard working blue collar voters for a failed campain and let them fill their gas tanks.

    A multi-millionaire asking these people for money only to pay her debts.

    She talks about how $70 dollars for a summer of gas tax relief will help them, then asks them to give it to her just does not seem right.

    I hope that the vote fraud that took place last night, in lake county IN is investigated! Add it to the investagations going on now in Texas, and God only knows where else! I also believe Obama should be brought up on charges of inciting riots, Blacks will burn down cities if he does not get the nomination! I hope Howard Dean and Nancy Pelosi put a stop to this blackmail, FYI, NO, Hillary supporters will not come together for Obama, WE, unlike the Democratic party and the DNC , will vote for the LOVE of our country! THEY are the people of HATE.

  12. CNN why are you not posting my comments???

    Race is over .......... if she wants to continue .. we should let her .. no one should stop her .... but anyone with commonsense would know her efforts are futile + she is going bankrupt . yes i agree .. she would win W.V, Kentucky & Puerto Rico ... but the overall winner would be Obama ... she is going bankrupt for god's sake .....

    The only argument she has now is let Fl & MI have their votes seated .....

    good luck to her .....

    She has to think hard herself of her chances to close the gap of 150 deligate count. You have to play by the rules. If she is sure of not getting nomination but want o hurt the party at the end, she should drop out now than taking chances and hurting the party.

    I admire and respect Clinton and have some reservations about Obama – but I am really alarmed that McCain is to old and too committed to war, and he himself says he doesn't understand the economy. He could be even worse than Bush. So it's time for Clinton to step down and both of them start campaigning for Obama. And she has been a terrific Senator and I hope will continue to serve in her admirable style for the next decade or two. That way, we get both of them.

    Just business as usual. Whites vote for Hillary and that is racist. Howerver, over 9 out of 10 blacks vote for Obama and its just a demographic of the electorate exercising their right to choose?

    Any way you cut it, its voting based on race. That is wrong.

    Hillary –
    Just some advice for you : As Democrats, we WILL remember your refusal to accept your obvious defeat in this primary, and the damage you are causing the party and the inevitable Democratic nominee due to your blind arrogance and desire for personal gain.

    Good luck running for any other political office in the future. We will be waiting to vote against you.

    Why???? Give it up Hillary. You're delusional if you think you can win this thing. Kind of like the idea that we'll win the war in Iraq, just give it time.

    I think she should take this opportunity and gracefully exist this race.

    This race is over it is a media gimmick now it is over and for anyone to suggest otherwise is a liar and can not add and subtract!

  22. Marc - Canada supports Obama

    It's one thing to be tenacious and determined. It's another thing to be stubborn, selfish and stupid.

    I predict another victory in West Viginia for Obama and Hillary will go out on a negative note instead of a positive one after her Rush Linbaugh aided victory in Indiana.

    Please, let's not bash Hillary even if you feel she should get out of the race. Hillary has said she will do everything possible to keep our party united by supporting Obama if he is the winner. Thus far it looks like Obama is the winner but if not he has vowed to do the same. Support the Democrat Party.

    Fight the good fight.

    Can someone tell me how anyone could call Hillary "more electable" when she can't even beat Obama. How crazy is that?
