    I'm glad. And I'm sure he will give her the much deserved respect and recognition for all she's done for this country.

    Good Job Dems.

    Mary I agree that the party chose the wrong nominee.

    But Hillary should do what is best for the Country and not the party.

    That is the difference between a leader and an ambitious politician.

  4. Can the News Media Let's enjoy this moment without the negatives

    tThanks ms. Crowley, for the positive reporting. You have done a great job trying to stay unbias to both Candidate. The Clintons owe to the party to unite the people. They have done a lot of damage trying to win by all cost. They have badly damage Obama and the DNC. We know though that their a lot of intelligent people as we can see from these blog that will do the right thing and vote for change. The know they owe for their children and their country...

    Wolfe,

    Where are you taking your talking points from? Who's saying that
    "the Republicans are better at negative campaigning?" Sounds like you're taking sides by quoting the democrates.

    Come on Wolfe. As a journalist, lay your personal convictions aside. Be tough on democrats, as well as republicans. Just dig for the facts and restore the honor to journalistic standards.

    I do not understand why CNN or the other Network MSNBC, failed to
    fully cover the Democratic Convention! This is a history making convention and I and my friend had to find the exciting events on C-Span
    the government channel. This is the only way we could see and enjoy the Convention properly.

    On the first day of the convention we watched CNN and missed a lot. We did watch your staff talk while the events went on in the background. We sincerely hope you disrespect the Republicans
    much the same as you are doing the Democrats.

    Notice how the McCain campaign is making a fool out of Hillary Clinton...using her in their attack ads against Senator Obama.
    All her nasty campaigning has come home to haunt her and the Democratic Party.
    She is now laughable.

    Why does the media keep harping about the importance of Hillary's speech???

    She was my candidate, not my God. What she says will have no influence on my vote. I will NOT vote for Obama, and it has nothing to do with bitter feelings OR the Clintons.

    I think he made a foolish choice based on pride and arrogance. He could have had 38 million votes right out of the gate, but he didn't want to share the limelight with Hillary.

    We've had 8 long years of pride before intellect, that's enough for me.

    Clinton will do what she has to do to preserve her opportunity in 2012. It is Obama's responsibility to unify the party – not Hillary Clinton's. But, no matter what – Obama is down in the polls – no bounce from Biden...........and..............there are millions who do not support the new and flip-flop improved Senator Obama. He was unelectable in February and he is unelectable now. His new position on issues are NOT close to Clintons. He was annointed by the DNC. If this was a real process, where everyones votes really did count, the DNC/Obama would allow a floor vote between he and Clinton. Whom ever wins – wins and moves forward......vs.........this contrived and bully nominee. Vote for Country – no flip flop – Vote McCain! PUMA!

    This is a real issue here McCain disrespects women. This is a real pattern here and the media is not going after McCain for this.

    Any woman that cares about verbal and physical abuse would never vote for McCain! Just look at poor Cindy McCain John wiill not let her speak a the convention next week in Minn.

    McCain and Romney think a womans place is at home, just look at Cindy she looks like she has had alot of emotional abuse.

    Hillary Clinton had better show up at the event. What message would she be sending if she did otherwise.

    Thank you Hillary! And thank you to the millions of Hillary supporters who are now supporting Obama. We need every single one of you. Don't fall for McCain's insincere pandering.

    Question? How do we know that the 18 million voters of Hillarys' were true Clinton supporters and not deployed from the "LImbaughs Lunatics brigade", that set out to thwart Barack Obamas campaign in Texas/Ohio and Pennsylvania primaries?

  21. McCain 08 & Hillary 12

    The DNC can't lead itself out of a paper bag. It threw Hillary under the bus and for what....a nominee who has no experience and is so far left that we can't see him. Change? Yeah, right - Biden represents change. Yeah, right. McCain 08 and Hillary 12.

    CNN has disappointed me for the last time. I expected full coverage of this convention and its speakers. Yet, I get to listen to all the CNN stars comment of the lack of attack by the dems on the republicans. If CNN actually listened and perhaps broadcasted the ENTIRE convention like CSPAN – they would have much less to talk about and much less air time for its superstars – It seems the convention is more a showcase for all the CNN political correspondents than for the democratic party – SHAME ON YOU CNN – YOU JUST LOST ANOTHER VIEWER
