This little town hadn't seen a president since Harry Truman stopped here - that is, until the other day, 10 administrations, three wars and more than 14,000 days later, when Bill Clinton stood up on a flatbed ...

Who is Running: Bill or Hilary?
Hilary Clinton's campaign is essentially Billy Clinton's campaign. The fact that many voters do not see this simple fact raises serious questions about the nature of political education in America. If Bill is responsible for winning 60% of the voters Hilary has won, common sense tells us who is really going to be in charge in her White House. Do Americans want oligarchy of democracy? If they want the former, why don’t rejoin the British Empire? Each time Hilary makes any mistake in this campaign it is Bill who steps forward to correct it. It is equally strange that most women in America think that Hilary’s presidency has relation to women empowerment. It is even more perplexing that the working class should even believe that Hilary, who amassed 109 m dollars in 8 years represent their hope, whereas a candidate who has just paid his college loan is somehow elitist. My 8 years Swiss son laughed at that logic. The American media should change its culture and reinvent itself to become the vehicle of enlightened political education in America. As it is now, it only reminds us of Italian political culture – the lowest in western European political culture – which churns up Berlusconi every eight years.

instead of the Hillbeast attacking OPEC, she, Obama, and all the rest of our elected brains should be going after the oil companies that are sitting on the leases and not taping into the ocean of oil that they discovered under Gull Island,
Alaska in 1972. Once found, they said that the US would have cheap gasoline for the next 200 years. Instead of producing gas for the US they are hoarding it to keep the prices up for their profits.

The Hilldabeast knows the gas holiday is a canard that would never make it past president McBush, er I mean Bush. No economist has endorsed it. The whole thing is another cheap stunt by a desperate candidate. THE HILLDABEAST!!! http://hilldabeast.com/

The media is in the pocket of corpoate America. Why do you think ya never see dead American GI's. America is in a state of denial which will only be perpetuated if Hillary or McCain are elected.

Bill should knock it off allready. Implying again that Obama thinks he is better then the rest.

Come to think of it: you would want somebody in the White House that is acually better then the rest.

Plain old common sense (ever heard of it Bill?) tells you that the one leading the country has to be the best a country has, if not he or she has no business being the leader.

From all the remaining candidate Obama is clearly the best: more integrity, more composed under attack, better able to get people to follow him through a (much) higher charisma level then the others.

A statesman in his speeches and a gentleman keeping the high road when the low road is so tempting.

Sounds to me like presidential material...

Who the heck coined it "The Bubba Tour"? If I lived in N.C. I would be insulted! Did the Tribune Correspondents coin the phrase? I guess the two fabulous Tribune correspondents (Dorning and Parsons) are looking down their noses to call other people "Bubbas"! Nice. They would be the first to call foul and tear into someone in an article if they were called a Bubba.

We Clinton supporters need to contact our Congressmen and US Senators and Howard Dean and insist on Michigan and Florida delegates being seated fairly. No 50/50 split which would cancel Hillary’s legitimate wins.

It is ridiculous for Obama supporters to insist that the "voters" in those states DESERVE to lose their voice because the State Party Organizations broke some rules. When did any of us get to decide when or how we vote in primaries or in the general? Get Real...the voters are always innocent bystanders.

Florida can be counted “as is" since Obama and Clinton were on the ballot and no one was favored.

Michigan needs a revote and since they are going to vote on statewide measures on Aug 5th, there is NO REASON why they can't choose between Clinton and Obama at the same time.

Right now, it is Obama and his supporters who are blocking any Michigan revote or Florida seating for that matter.

WE VOTERS need to write Howard Dean and our state superdelegates and convince them that we WILL NOT STAND for the contest to be stacked in favor of Obama because "his supporters might get upset". Hillary's supporters WILL GET UPSET as well if she doesn't get a fair shake and that includes the votes she got from Michigan and Florida.(The media and Howard Dean act as if Obama, by virtue of being black, has a higher claim than Hillary. Listen and you will hear this outrageous bias everywhere.)

If Obama gets his way, it will be all of us who lose since he will have NO chance in November without the support of Michigander and Floridian voters as well as angry voters such as me. We must promise retribution if Howard Dean and the credentials committee refuse to play fair.

Write congress.org and Howard Dean at [www.democrats.org].

Do this today and pass it on please. Time is running out and the Credentials Committee is meeting at the end of May.

I don't think Obama went to law school right out of college so paying his loans would be right on target with his age. I also think the bulk of the 109m was earned via book deals and speaking engagements by former President Clinton. Obama will make megabucks on his previous books and next book. There must be a deal lurking somewhere. Also, a spouse should help in the campaign. No one questions Michelle Obama's committment to the campaign. Finally, this is not about the empowerment of women; it is about the best person for the job.

HillBilly Hillary and Billy Clinton have taken $109,000,000 favor money from South American governments to undermine the American People and help South American cartels. Hillary must return those ill gotten $109,000,000 favor money immediately. Harvard Scholar Barack Obama will bring unity and scholarship to America. Obama will bridge the gap, befriend our friends in Europe and around the World, and return honor to the White House. America will once again be the respected leader of the World with Harvard Scholar Barack Obama.
Are you really this stupid? Most of the $109 million was earned from Clinton book royalties and the fees from Bill's speeches. It's a matter of public record, so why don't you just look it up? But then it would be harder for you to spread your lying filth on these message boards.

And, just for your information, since I'm assuming you wouldn't understand this, Rhodes Scholar Bill Clinton trumps Harvard "scholar" Barack Obama. Obama was accepted at Columbia and Harvard under Affirmative Action. Had he been white, his grades would have never come close to making the cut. Becoming a Rhodes Scholar is the ultimate testament to a student's genius.

Doesn't matter. Although not illegal, it is still outside the confines of marriage. Also, it is none of my business as President Clinton's are certainly none of your business.

It does matter when its done in the Oval Office, i.e workplace, with a young subordinate. It does matter when it is done as the governor of Arkansas with lower level state employees. I could go on and on as far as Bill Clinton is concerned. Is'nt it great that we don't have such disgusting behavior from our current president?
