    Senator Obama does not have all the answers, but I feel he is the best person for the job between these two candidates.There is no person in the world truly qualified to lead a nation. Not one country has been perfect. The unfortunate reality is he will not win because he is black. That is the long and short of it. I hope that all black Americans, white, Asian, and Latino, run to the polls to insure this does not happen. Because if not ,as diverse as this country becomes, when an Asian or Latino runs, we will have the same backlash.
    The Republican party should be shown the door for all reasons. Lets hope we AMERICANS keep it open long enough to vote them out. Skin pigment should never enter into our minds when measuring a person for any reason..

    It is Obama who is leading in Colorada and not McCain. Please correct that error at your website!

    The following sentence at your website about the Quinnipiac poll is false:

    "while a new Quinnipiac poll shows the Arizona senator with a 4-point lead in Colorado."

    Obama going dooooownnnn…

    Americans tired of democrat owned congress ruining gas prices (how you can blame republicans is ridiculous) and democrats have had oversight of market committee for two years now and you are blaming republicans for the metldown?

    look in the mirror people, your own party is destroying this country….things were just fine until 2006 when Dems took over! Think about that…

    you are a fool and misinformed person seeing that these problems have been brewing for over two years , it's okay continue to drink the green kool-aid and eat the yellow snow that the republican feed you

    just checked the quinnipiac/wall street journal poll, and it's the senator from Illinois, not the senator from Arizona, whose up by four there. So the poll number is right on the ticker, but the copy isn't.
