Clinton fights on, Obama returns to Iowa

[cnn-photo-caption image= http://i.l.cnn.net/cnn/2008/POLITICS/05/20/primary.wrap/art.split.candidates.ap.jpg caption=" Obama campaigned in Montana Monday while Clinton campaigned in Kentucky the day before the state's primary."]
(CNN) - It's all about location, location, location.

Sen. Hillary Clinton will spend Tuesday night in Kentucky to celebrate what's expected to be a big win in that state's primary. But Sen. Barack Obama won't be in Oregon, even though he's favored to win that state's contest Tuesday.

The Illinois senator will appear at a rally in Iowa, where he kicked off the primary season with a January 3 caucus win - a victory that helped propel him to Democratic front-runner status.

Iowa is also a swing state - one President Bush won by just 10,000 votes in 2004, and one the Democrats would love to win this November.

Obama told reporters Sunday that visiting Iowa "was a terrific way to kind of bring things full circle."

    For those of you who will refuse to vote for Obama just because you prefer Hillary are not truly grasping the seriousness of your decision to not unite our party. For you women who thinks Mr. Obama is sexist and will vote for McCain, just remember, Mr. McCain will take away your right to chose and conservatize the Supreme Court and that would not be in your favor. If you want your children, nephew and nieces to be sent to Iraq, vote for McCain. If you want 4 more years of the last 8, vote for McCain, you will get what you deserve because of your refusal to unite and take back the White House. All I heard this morning on the news and read on these blogs is sexism and racism. Enough already. Mr. Obama is winning this fair and square. Mr. McCain called Mrs. Clinton to congratulate her on her Indiana win; he never once called Mr. Obama which tells you a lot about our government. This is the 21st Century, and it's time for a big change. The Bush's and Clinton's have held on to the White House to long. Sorry for my rant, I just got so upset seeing Geraldine Ferraro on TV this morning spuing sexism and putting thoughts in womens minds that they have be dupped... so untrue, so un-democratic. That kind of talk will cause us to lose this race, again.

    Hillary supporters who will vote for McCain in November:

    You are choosing "experience", and ensuring that our troops continue to be sacrificed in a mind-boggingly wasteful war for no reason but to keep our SUVs running. You're choosing political know-how, and blatantly and seriously risking a woman's right to choose.

    Get over your bitterness, join the chorus calling for transparent government, peace, equality, and respect and safety for Americans and America.

    Obama's success is NOT due to some underlying sexism. Every Obama supporter is a would-be Hillary supporter. He is simply the far, far superior candidate.

    C'mon over! No hard feelings!
    Obama for America! Obama 08!

    Barack Obama did NOT make the rules for FL and MI.

    Harold Ickes of the Clinton camp DID vote to punish them.

    The fault lies within the Government of the two states. If you are upset about the outcome, get out of your chair and vote in a new Gov who will not choose to break the rules.

    It IS that simple. I certainly hope the voters are counted also, but I would do everything in my power to make sure those in the gov. that are responsible for this are punished as they have chose to punish you voters.

    Place blame where it belongs!!!!!!!!!

    For those of you who think that we Hillary supporters will 'fall in line' in November, are sadly mistaken. Millions of us will do whatever it takes to send Obama back to the Senate.

    Well then, Christine, you will have no right to be here in a couple of years when McCain is president and we're in worse shape than we are now. Grow up.

    Obama Supporters:

    Don't respond to anymore Hillary posts. It is pointless. This is how she and CNN are able to keep the drama going. It's over, she lost. Enough.

    Let Hillary supporters talk to each other, and don't respond.

    What a shame for the democrats, but we will reap what we sow. If we as a party are willing to nominate an empty shirt as our candidate, we deserve to be led by a republican for 4 more years. I can't stomach voting for this racist, sexist lying man, so I'll be holding my nose and voting for McCain, unless the rules committee seats Florida and Michigan, and the super-delegates get a clue and support the only nominee that makes sense for our party – Senator Hillary Clinton.
