    The exit polls showed that only 45% of Hillary supporters will vote for Obama, and I am one of the 65% that will not. Obama supporters have been nothing but nasty and I'll have nothing to do with his campaign. I'll gladly vote for McCain and wait for Hillary to run again in 2012. Obama doesn't have a prayer; he can't win with his cult of blind followers alone.

    I watched the Dems self-destruct with McGovern, Dukasis etc.
    As Newt Gingrich said last week the Dems will go over the cliff to support their candidates. Here we fall againnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn!

    When I heard her speak last night, I thought she is going to anonunce she is leaving the race. Bill's face was all red. He is definitely pissed off. I am a Obama supporter. But if the consitution allows and Bill Clinton runs again for the presidency, I will vote for him in a heart beat!

    I've been watching CNN throughout the primaries and I can say that CNN is pro-clinton network. Here is my brakedown:

    Clinton Supporters:
    John King
    Wolf Blitzer
    John Roberts
    Candy Crowley
    Susan Malvaux
    Lou Dobbs
    Campell Brown

    Bill Schenider

    Obama Supporter:
    Jack Caftrey

    Now you decide!

    Obama, supporters I am watching you on this blog. How you respond on this blog will determine how I vote. So far, I do not see myself voting for Obama. You need to act like adults and realize that you cannot win without the Hillary supporters.

    Hillary 2008/2012>>>>>>>>>!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Not helping your cause. Maybe heading home with your tail between your legs will. Better luck next time. And I hope that time doesn't come. I voted Republican against Bill and I would do the same with Hillary. I will vote for Barak.

    Almost CNN, Almost. Your agency tried to bombard the public with the Rev. Wright issue with the intent of it having a negative affect on Obama but it didn't work. Ha! Ha!

    The United States has recently had a history of electing rather mediocre candidates. That is why Hillary Clinton can't and won't get the nomination. The mediocre trend will continue with either Obama or McCain. Intelligent and hard-working candidates need not apply. There is a dummy-down effect. Just drink a beer every night for the cameras and pretend to be a common every day Joe. The next president is going to confront major economic issues and chances are he will be the candidate of mediocracy. You can read my newspaper at,

    She gave two speeches last night. I truly believe this campaign is all about her. Because a true democrate wouldn't destroy his/ or her own house likes she is doing. She truly like chaos.

    I have to laugh at all the people who say Obama is not electable in the general election, why is that? Because you wont vote for him? Many Hillary supporters seem to be as divisive as she is, they would rather see the party lose than support Obama. Sickening.

    Obama cannot win in November. It is a shame that the party cannot see this. McCain will be the next President.

    7 % of the people in indiana was part of the operation chaos

    read this

    In an e-mail entitled “The Limbaugh Effect in Indiana = 7 percent,” Obama campaign spokesman Bill Burton wrote: “According to the latest exit polling data, 17 percent of voters in the Indiana primary today said they would vote for John McCain in a Clinton/McCain match-up. Forty-one percent of that number is constituted by people who voted Clinton in the primary but also indicated they will vote for McCain in the general election. That comes out to just under 7 percent of the primary electorate the number that may be attributed to a Limbaugh Effect

    It was a good run... time to hang it up Hillary. This is starting to look like an obsession. It's time to put your dreams aside for the good of the country.

    Mrs. Clinton should go home. Florida and Michigan should not count because they broke the rules.. You can't change the rules in the middle of the game. In this race that has racial implications! It would seem as an attempt to do everything possible to keep the black candidate from winning. This is a historical moment in politics, Mrs. Clinton should do the honorable thing and bow out
