Dear South Dakota:Aside from foster children, and illegal immigrants, the American Indian people are amongst the most under served and valued population within the United States of America.
I also know that class distinctions within our country are usually at the basis of the "hows and whys" of when things become awful for individual families no matter their tribe, race or religion. When you look at the candidates; McCain, Obama & Clinton, you must try to look at what each could do for the whole of our country. It means that beyond race or gender so far Hillary is the only contender still standing, that has effectively supported black & white foster kids, American Indians, Working Class peoples' rights and initiated safety nets for poverty struck families and women. There may be mistakes in her record in her words, but not within her actions and movement toward bettering the laws that govern over the lower classes in our country. Americans must wake up to the extreme class war happening right now and embrace the rightful candidate. Sincerely, Denise from Philadelphia "

Obama - No need to apologise for truth.

The excitement that RC preacherman whose
words (power of words) and delivery were
right on song. Folks across the nation
kept mouthing of a Hillary presidency
and then from left field she was hit with
an Obama. No wonder there is Big Time angst
at what came to pass.

Obama - please don't go to Iraq knowing what happened to JFK who had me cringing
thinking what might befall him - And it did.

Just to go over and the costs associated in
doing so - the wearing of a bulletproof helmet
and Flak jackets for a photo OP is ridiculous.

My fear is that Lieberman's friends will set
up a scenario wherein harm can befall our only
hope for America's salvation.

Gotta purchase that McClellen's book on lies
that went down - got sheep bleating their mantra.

Neocons got Americkanzis in lock step harmony with ME master race.
in der Harmonie mit MIR Vorlagen
IRAQ Invasion and Occupation for Zion
nell'armonia con ME matrice
Scott McClellan finally connected the dots.
Had to be careful around ARI (Lieberman's cadre) not to give evidence of - until his book got
out - otherwise who knows.
OBAMA of Course

CLINTONs' NAFTA just helped multi-national corporations send U.S. JOBS overseas. And NAFTA stepped o0n Unions as well and is the reason Unions support Obama-- Workers know how the Clintons have hurt them-- Obama is for the Average American. The Clintons don't really care about gas prices, the OIL Corporations are the Clintons friends. Obama was brought up with a sense of community and the worth of the Average individual, his mother appreciated the struggle of ordinary working people-- she was an anthropologist and a community helper. Working for the average human being and making things right for them is how Barack Obama was raised how he worked in Illinois- that's what's driving him making things right for Americans that have gone so wrong (gas prices, unnecessary War,jobs lost overseas, predatory lending practices(Clinton is pro-big Business at the expense of working Americans and Clinton pushed for the Predatory Lenders $30 Million tax-payer funded Bail-out). Voting for Clinton is like voting for RePUGnicans.

More bad news for Obama as Catholic priests rants with racial slurs against Clinton? How far will Obama supporters stoop? When does an apology become meaningless?

Iowa and New Hampshire have had a dog this hunt from the beginning. They moved their primaries up as well and werenít punished by the DNC.

Here is the statement from the Clinton campaign:

Press Release
5/31/2008
Statement from The Clinton Campaign on the DNC Rules and Bylaws Committee Meeting

Harold Ickes and Tina Flournoy made the following statement this evening:
Today's results are a victory for the people of Florida who will have a voice in selecting our Partyís nominee and will see its delegates seated at our partyís convention. The decision by the Rules and Bylaws Committee honors the votes that were cast by the people of Florida and allocates the delegates accordingly.

We strongly object to the Committee's decision to undercut its own rules in seating Michiganís delegates without reflecting the votes of the people of Michigan.

The Committee awarded to Senator Obama not only the delegates won by Uncommitted, but four of the delegates won by Senator Clinton. This decision violates the bedrock principles of our democracy and our Party.

We reserve the right to challenge this decision before the Credentials Committee and appeal for a fair allocation of Michiganís delegates that actually reflect the votes as they were cast.

http://www.hillaryclinton.com/news/release/vi...

The argument wasnít as much about seating half delegates as the fact that they TOOK AWAY 4 Clinton delegates. In addition, the uncommitted delegates should have been assigned as UNCOMMITTED, not Obama delegates or not at all. This would have meant that a portion of those would in fact have voted for Obama, but not all. I donít think itís over yet.

17 County Commissioners Endorse Hillary Clinton for President

Commissioners Represent 15 Counties Across the State
SIOUX FALLS, SD - In a clear display of momentum two days before the primary and on the heels of multiple visits by Hillary, Chelsea and President Clinton, the Clinton campaign in South Dakota today announced the endorsement of 17 county commissioners.

"As I travel to communities big and small in South Dakota, I have listened to the voices of so many who are ready for a President who will fight for them, return to fiscal responsibility, honor our veterans and invest in alternative energy production right here in South Dakota."
The list of commissioners who have endorsed Hillary is below.

[There are not enough pledged delegates at stake in Montana and South Dakota to put Obama over the top, but a rush of endorsements by the remaining undeclared "superdelegates" could allow him to claim victory when he takes the stage in Minnesota Tuesday evening.]

This the kind of shenanigan that is so dreary. Why would the Obama camp want you to think he has won now? Why caní he wait until polls are closed? There is no statement from the Clinton Camp that I can find in blogs or anywhere other than this is new spin. The VP slot was discussed weeks ago. No matter what, she needs the opinion by vote. It looks like another attempt to me to dissuade voters.

The AP reportedly put out a poll of probable endorsers, I canít find it. I donít think we got a winner yet. In the mean time see below for where I think all this coming from.

Clinton says she's open to being Obama's VP

By BETH FOUHY and DEVLIN BARRETT
Associated Press Writers
[Obama effectively sewed up the 2,118 delegates needed to win the nomination Tuesday, based on a tally of pledged delegates, superdelegates who have declared their preference, and another 18 superdelegates who have confirmed their intentions to The Associated Press. It also included five delegates Obama was guaranteed as long as he gained 15 percent of the vote in South Dakota and Montana later in the day]
