Is Hillary Clinton’s candidacy Constitutional under the 22nd amendment? The 22nd amendment ratified in 1951 holds that “No person shall be elected to the office of the President more than twice.” There is no language in the 22nd amendment which says that married couples can serve four terms. What will Bill Clinton ‘s role be in a Hillary administration and his comments that when you elect Hillary you get “ two for one” supports the conclusion that he in effect will be serving a third term as a co-President in violation of the Constitution.

You must at least admire Obama for not bring up the Clinton scandals: Whitewater, missing law records, making an impossible $100,000 profit on a $1,000 cattle futures investment,Travelgate, shady agriculture secretary, looking thru 900 FBI files on Republican officials etc, etc, etc. How quickly we forget.

oprah should be impeached for her racist support of an untried and inexperienced candidate, who but for his color is her motivation. consider where this candidate comes from, a state where top officials languish in jail, pols licking their chops for a chance to rape this coun try, a state that is the the cradle for the mafioso type.this islamic offspring cannot be trusted to further this country in its present values.

I thought NY guilt ridden liberals loved black people so much! So why did NYers cast their vote for a rich white woman?

Another Election Night Blunder - Emily Carlson
Another election night, another wrong projection.
Late Super Tuesday, the Associated Press jumped the gun, calling Sen. Hillary Clinton the Democratic primary winner in the state of Missouri.
An hour and twenty minutes later, they withdrew their call. Another hour and twenty minutes later, the AP gave the state to Sen. Barak Obama.
The blunder brings back memories of the 2000 presidental election, when the media declared Florida to Al Gore, then withdrew the call and awarded the state to George Bush, only to then declare the state undecided.
The aftermath of the mistake was ugly. Democrats and Republicans alike were irate at the media. Many voters went to bed thinking Al Gore was the winner, only to wake up to see the state was undecided. The public couldn't understand how the media could screw up so bad.
Eight years later, many viewers are still skeptical when the networks declare a "projection."
There is no excuse for these kind of mistakes. The public looks to the media for the facts. They want to know the truth. When colossial mistakes like calling a state for the wrong canidate happen, the media's credibility chips away. Viewers don't forget when huge blunders are made, and it takes a long time to earn that trust back. There's really no excuse for it to happen again. This election could be the most watched/higest voter turnout in history. The media should be extra viligant to make sure the same mistakes don't repeat themselves.
