    This is GREAT news! As one of New Yorks Senators in Washington she has done absolutely nothing! Many of we Democrats throughout New York do not support Hillary for any political office. She's nothing but a Carpet-Bagger and has done absolutely nothing for New Yorkers, except visit The State Fair and stay in Skaneatles!!!
    Joe Biden is a great and best choice!!!

    If there were enough PUMAs with enough guts to go out and work to change the election results, Hillary would have retired her debt by now. The enthusiasm shown by Obama's supporters is directly translated into financial support for his campaign. Positive thinking will always win out over a negative mindset, because it will change minds.

    To all PUMA friends:
    you don't want to vote for Obama who is a democrat like Hillary and whoes policy is very close to that of Hillary (more than 90%) , instead you prefer to vote for McSame who supported Bush 95% of the time. are you sure that you 've made a wise decision?
    if you really support Hillary so listen to her and vote for Obama, and be sure once he elected as president there will be an effective position for her, but in Mcsame adminestration you can be sure that there would be no place for people like Hillary.

    I am very disappointed in the way Obama went about announcing his choice – does he think it was wise to act like some big superstar and drag it out for hours and hours? All it did for me was make me disgusted enough to NOT vote for him. All I can say is grow up and try again when you have. The position you are applying for is not for an inexperienced person. We need a strong leader in this day and time, not a game player.

    "I'm sitting out?" Unbelievable!! People have fought and died for YOUR right to vote! Is any one politician worth betraying the thousands that have died and continue to die for democracy??? Really! Would your HILLARY want this as part of her legacy.

    Dr. Phil is taking new clients.

    Besides SEN. BIDEN DWARFS HILLARY. Don't be confused. Only BILL Clinton plays at Bidens level.

    Besides,how good can she be if she lost the primary to a freshman senator???

    What she learned and what McCain WILL learn is that we had one of the most EXPERIENCED administrations in resent history, and yet the have failed SUPREMELY in everyway possible.


    This democracy. Stop whining and get behind a Candidate that actually knows that Iraq and Afghanistan DON'T share a border.

    For those thinking of going to McCain, I encourage you to see "4 months 3 weeks 2 days". this is what it's like where abortions are illegal. GROW UP!!
