    Stay away from him, President Clinton. Your legacy is intact - you don't need to kiss Obama's backside - let him go down all by himself!

    Although Clinton bashing has been a favorite pastime of the media and their so called senior analysts, it's the Clinton's who have really delivered for this country. I hate to see the Clinton's helping Obama. Mr. ambitious isn't worthy.

    Bill owes notthing to Obama, whose campaign smeared him as a racist and lauded the Reagan years as better than the Clinton years. The Clintons have worked their entire lives for ALL people and this is how the Next Great Thing honors them? The people see right through Obama.

    Bill, run, don't walk, away from this media-made diasaster in waiting.

    WHY? According to the Obama camp and their fans, they don't need President Clinton. The Obama camp made a concerted effort to demonize President Clinton and turn him into a racist, now Obama needs him? Pulleease.

    I don't see how these two could be Buds( not Budz) that must be a black Kenyian spelling of that word . One is a socialist and for change ( changed his mind on everything) so i don't know what he stands for except hate for america and socialism. That i am sure of. Clinton he is a racist according to the Obama camp and his followers and expecially James Clyburn ( Black leader from south carolina) Pelosi and Reed. So I can't back these two (budz) . Guess I will vote for the old white guy. He doesn't fit either of these two categories.

    G8 world power # 1 with a struggling economy because of our republicans friends. We need to vote change to change this mess with our economy. Vote democratic this November if you want to leave the American dream which is have a job, be able to pay for education, and have a home to live in.

    If they are Budz, then I'll have to vote for McCain.

    Say no more to Clintons in the White House, they are just as bad as the House of Bush.

    CNN, for the love of God please post...
    Is the RNC setting us up?
    John Mccain:
    "McCain starred on that committee, working hand in hand with his new ally, Sen. John Kerry, the panel’s co-chairman, to play down voluminous evidence that size able numbers of men were still held alive after the prisoner return in 1973. One example: At the time of the committee’s hearings, the Pentagon had received more than 1,600 firsthand sightings of live American prisoners and nearly 14,000 secondhand reports. The intelligence officers who gathered these reports from refugees and other "...the Hero?
    "In early 1987, at the beginning of his first Senate term, McCain attended two meetings with federal banking regulators to discuss an investigation into Lincoln Savings and Loan, an Irvine, Calif., thrift owned by Arizona developer Charles Keating. Federal auditors were investigating Keating's banking practices, and Keating, fearful that the government would seize his S&L, sought intervention from a number of U.S. senators"...the experiance?
    "USS Forrestal Mishap July 29, 1967….McCain destroys ship"...the straight talker?
    "US campaign watchdog has accused presumptive Republican president nominee John McCain of violating election laws by accepting campaign contributions from two prominent Londoners"...the "leader?

    I Love Bill Clinton!! I Love Hillary too!!!
    I'm torn between the two but I think I like Hillary better, that's my girl!!!

    Hillary wants health care for everyone, on the other hand Obama has absolutely no health care plan. He can smooth talk his supporters but if you read his health care plan it's just like George W. Bush. No one will be able to afford health coverage.

    If Barack is all about change and saving peoples lives, why wouldn't he want to provide health coverage to all Americans?

    Obama doesn't need to court Bill for what?

    Bill needs to court all the people he has offended during the primary.

    The media needs to stop this, the people don't owe the clintons anything. The clintons owe the people many apologies. When do the clintons apologize to the people?

    I don't understand how in the world would anyone in their right mind actually think that Barack and Michelle would be better at running this country then Bill and Hillary?

    Barack is a President in training, he's learning as he goes.

    First he was for Public Financing now he's aganist it.

    Second he was going to withdraw the troops in Iraq now it may take
    100 years.

    Third Bill is a racist now he's not.

    I actually do not like Obama supporters at all. They want to mess up
    our country by selecting someone with absolutely no experience just like they did with George W. Bush.
