    Both Bill and Michelle better be alert.

    Well I don't think Bill cares if Hillary makes late night visits with Barack.

    Hey Haters for Obama… have you STILL not learned that hating fellow democrats will not win over their hearts or their votes?

    Obama supporters… You keep threatening Hillary with blame for the mess that Obama created. How silly is that?

    That will move even MORE democrats over to the Republicans, or third party candidates.

    IF Obama loses… it will be his own fault for playing the race card, his campaign's fault for disrespecting the party's other candidate, the hateful Obama supporter's fault for their crude, filthy comments denigrating HRC and demeaning her supporters, and the DNC for capitulating and installing a weak, unqualified, inexperienced nominee.

    Black may be the in color, but it is NOT a qualification for office of the presidency.

    The only winner out of all this is HRC. She is the only one who can legitimately HOLD her head high. She was the REAL DEAL for all Americans… not some trumped up Oprah media production. Not some DNC installed puppet. Not some media darling with a flair for spin.

    I'm very honest in saying this. I am an Obama supporter & a 50+ white female. I would be the FIRST to bristle at any perceived sexism & I read/follow the political news appr 6 hours a day. I TRULY don't remember hearing anything awful from the Obama camp – perhaps a mention about "pantsuits" but Hillary joked about them too. WHERE is this hate, etc. that these posters are talking about? My acid test always is – if a Martian landed & you gave him/her the facts, what would he/she think? Bill & Hillary's comments (he's not a Muslim, as far as I know.../ Jesse Jackson, etc) were far more inflammatory than "pantsuits" comments. I DO think Hillary was a much better campaigner (not necessarily CANDIDATE) at the end – I regained admiration for her. But the primary wasn't "hers" just as it wasn't Barack's.

    I just don't get the "cut off your nose to spite your face" that's going on. As they BOTH have said, they're 99% the same on policy. I believe ANY winner will be a one-termer. Our problems are just huge & the vast majority of the electorate will be impatient, forgetting that it took Bush 8 years to get us here. So she just has to sit tight (as I think she's figured out...) and she'll be a "shoe in" in an election or two. And she'll, in the meantime, become an unbeatable stateswoman.

    This ISN'T the time to sit home/vote McCain. We have the Supreme Court, Iraq, the economy to deal with. REAL Democrates won't lose sight of those factors.

    As I've found in life, sometimes you win & sometimes you lose. But we can STILL all win if we get behind the Democratic nominee.

    Or are you posters just McCain people trying to stir things up?

  4. bias killed her but love brings her back

    Back off you HRC haters...

    Every nasty, negative blog causes one more democrat to defect from this hateful disgusting, infauated with Pop stars, party.

    You are doing Obama no favors by trashing Hillary. Too many of us Love her and love our democratic process to allow you all to trash and destroy either.

    I thought this argument was over. Let it go, man! Obama is the nominee. Get some sleep.

    If Obama keeps flip-flopping, he will need Hillary more than ever. The liberal left is angry, Jesse Jackson is showing the growing anger in the black community as Obama continues to turn his back on issues that matter( yes, Jackson may have been caught by an open mic, but does anyone believe he did not believe what he said). Obama needs to drop the attitude and talk to the American people. His inexperiance is showing and soon I believe many democrats will be wishing for Hillary. This democrat will not support Obama until I get a clear answer and a real understanding of him and his policies. We do not need another John Kerry. Clinton may be Obama's only hope.

    You want 20 dollar gasoline, depression and war with Iran? Vote Hobama.

    Guess they only got 100 thousand from the donators. She can't afford to fly other than with Obama to tonights begging session.

    Jesse Jackson tells the truth and apologizes. lololol. The truth sometimes outs.

    So it's pretty clear form the comments here that he shouldn't help pay off her debts when all of her "supporters" are so angry and are going to vote for McCain. If these are truly her supporters, he should just move on.

    I CAN GUARANTEE THAT THE BLOGGERS WHO ARE TALKING ABOUT HOW BADLY HILLARY WAS TREATED ARE ACTUALLY REPUBLICANS POSING AS HER SUPPORTERS, AND NEVER DID VOTE FOR HER. A GENUINE HILLARY SUPPORTER WOULD NOT TAKE THAT ANGLE BECAUSE THEY REALIZE THAT HILLARY AND HER BASE ATTACKED OBAMA EVEN WORSE. HE TREATED HER WITH RESPECT. We are not electing democratic supporters into office, we are electing a candidate. I am for Obama, and had Hillary won, then I'd suck it up and support her. Quit being fooled by the rep machine – most Hillary supporters are on board w/ Obamastar.

  10. haters for Obama

    As a republican I can say that the Obama supporters have been MOST helpful.

    The more they hate their own... the more lifelong democrats decide to leave the party and give Old McCain a look.

    Thanks for the help.

    Obama will lose this on his own. People don't vote for guys who make speeched FOR a person that vote for the candidate. Obama is too far Left and it will easy to expose that for the Republicans no matter what Bill or Hillary say.

  13. mending the bridges he burned

    Keep on hating... all you for 'Bro befor Ho'...

    And then it will be OUR turn to sing: ANYbody but THIS bro and his very ugly Ho.

    Wow isn't the new democratic party inspiring?
    Don't you love all the bigotry and hate Obama inspired?

    Aren't we a sight?
    WHO wouldn't vote for a democrat after the bandwagon, the Pop star production, the race-baiting spectacle, the political raping of the female candidate, the crude filthy strategies to install a puppet nominee.

    Good for them. It's too bad they had to go through a bruising primary to get to this point, but I think the sum of them is even greater than its parts.

    The democratic party is lucky to have both Clinton and Obama fighting for us.

    McCain, on the other hand, is a nasty, ornery, unappealing, overconfident fraud with stale ideas and a destructive agenda. And his supporters masquerading as "Pumas" are no better.

    Amen, gary c. Some people vote with their egos and not their heads, though. Sen. Clinton was a strong candidate, as was Sen. Obama. I will tell the angry Clinton supporters what they would have told me if Sen. Obama had lost:
    "Get over it and vote for the candidate who most closely share's your values". No Brainer.

    Get over it PUMAs. Someone had to win and someone had to lose. The rules were the set before the primaries and the caucuses were the same when Bill Clinton won in 1992. You same people who complain about the caucuses weren't making a peep back then. Only when you lose all of a sudden the rules weren't fair. You are poor sports, poor losers. You sound worse than drunk fanatic football fans crying foul against the refs because their team lost. If the very clear primary rules were followed you would have lost by an even larger margin. But they were revised because you same people whined so much then and then you whine because they were not 150% in your favor. WHAAAAAHHHHHHH, WHAAAAHHHHH!!!!

    The McCain campaign is paying bloggers to pretend to be Hillary supporters and create as much divisiveness as possible among Democrats.

    Anyone who genuinely supported Hillary and her values will not be voting for McCain, not if they're informed and open-minded.
