West Virginia and Kentucky are a joke. They are voting strictly on race. None of these ignorant hill jacks have a clue as to what any of the candidates stand for. Could be that Hillary is a better candidate but they have no idea all they know is that they aren't voting for someone who is black. Sad, very sad.

I guess you obtained this information from...a crystal ball? You read minds? Or perhaps, just perhaps, you feel superior to people from southern states.

What crap... All You Obama supporters do is either parrot Obama's hype or blame Hillary for all the things Obama is guity of.

Of course they know hillary. She's a two-term Senator and was a first lady for 2 tearsm. She's been in National government for 16 years. You know that.

That's why I "hate" Obama his entire campaign is a bunch of con artist games. Double-talk. Obama comes from th IL Seenate, which is a part-time job, and they meed only 54 days a year, and is fueled by Big money from Big Corporations and International Millionaires. he springs on thge scene -- an actor with one con routine, and lie after the next, all the while double talking every point.

You're right it could be that significant portions of those states are racist. Yet if you're worried about racism so much, why have 91% of black voters voted for Obama? Maybe blacks as a race, are more racist than whites? Anyone that votes for a candidate based on race or sex should get out of this country, they are screwing it up.

All this from a Buckeye, like Ohio is so swell, Hell, even Hoosiers are smarter and have better schools than the Buckeyes. And this loutish Ohioan isn't bright enough to note the irony of his supposedly liberal position.
