Why are people calling for her resignation (which I think is smart on her... so as not to hurt Senator Obama) and not calling for Howard Wolfeson at the very least issue an appology for his claim that Obama was acting like Kenneth Starr? Furthermore, why is it no one is saying anything about Senator Clinton's remarks that in effect say Senator McCain would be a better president than Obama? What the hell? I admit I am an Obama supporter, but I used to like Mrs. Clinton until she decided to make this race ugly. I also do not understand why people are congratulating her for playing dirty politics within her own party. Up until the last 2 or so weeks, I respected her, but now she seems determined that if she is not the nominee then she will destroy the prospective nominee.

I just want to say if the shoe fits then wear it on both sides.
This is the way politics run. I will not take sides with either side. If Obama wins so be it, if Clinton wins so be it. It's going to be a long
haul until November.

Hillary comes acxross as a chameleon--she has NO definitive self core and we never know who's going to appear from moment to moment. Her behavior indicates that she will try any trick to win without regard or respect for the people of this country. Her ambition to be president apparently is all that matters. NO ETHICAL conscience is manifested!!

What was said needed to be said and should be said by more of us who can speak and permit Senator Obama to continue on the highroad which is what draws us to his leadership in the first place. NEW POLITICS should be the focus and not more of the "swiftboat" tactics Hillary has adopted!!!

Hey, the truth hurts...if the shoe fits. She called it as she sees it. Too bad she stepped down. The Clinton Camp has called Obama much worse and said and implied worse things indirectly. The 3:00 a.m. phone call ad was done to invoke fear and racism...they wanted you go visualize a "black" man answering the phone at 3:00 a.m. in the morning handling a national crisis. They're not fooling anyone. If you can't stand the heat, get out of the kitchen. This whole campaign is dirty!

Hey, you should all just vote for my wife, Hil. Look, I know she's a monster -- hell, I've been with her for 30 plus years now. Hello? Why do you think I'm a skirt chaser and not a pant suit chaser?

Anyway, it's just not polite to point this out in public.

Vote for my wife and get 8 more glorious years of me!

Oops, Hil's on the other line making sure I'm staying out of the limelight -- I've been reduced to just posting comments to news stories now. Well, gotta go.
