According to the demographics, I should be voting for Hillary Clinton: I'm a white, 60-year-old, highly educated woman from the Northeast. But I'm voting for Obama. I've waited all my life for a viable woman candidate for the presidency, but this is not the right woman. I want a woman of the highest ability and virtue, who would serve as a glorious role model to all young women. Hillary Clinton is not that woman.
She rode into power with her husband, and together they've acquired a long and seriously flawed history of self-serving and secretive financial and political dealings. The most cursory research will prove that true. She started out her political life supporting the racist Barry Goldwater. She is as comfortable with deception and trickery as George Bush. When I hear woman saying, "Oh, but that's how you get things done in Washington," I literally cringe.
I am passionately supporting Barack Obama. He can beat the Republicans; she cannot. Obama has attracted Independents and even Republicans to his camp, and in a general election they would vote for him, but not for Clinton. Clinton voted for the war, and has never apologized for it. Obama has spoken out against it from the beginning. Obama brings us hope--and not just that. Take a serious look at his ideas and experience.
Please, I beg of you, Sisters young and old: wait for the right woman. Then we can be proud.

I'm also a white 59 year old woman, retired executive for a world wide company, married to a latin man and neither of us would vote for Amnesty Obama, Amnesty Hillary or Amnesty McCain. Obama is a preacher that wants open borders, amnesty and chain migration. Hillary is the same. As a past business woman I totally understand the bottom line. Not having secure borders and ports is a disaster waiting to happen. Not demanding legal labor for all businesses is not fair to the American people. Two blocks from my house a young police officer was murdered by an illegal immigrant that had been deported twice before. Recently in Minnesota an illegal immigrant school bus driver was in an accident killing 4 children. Three of the four dead children have the same last name. This sort of thing is happening daily. We have an invasion in our own country but those that are not yet touched by it aren't listening. Why are states trying to take matters in their own hands with this issue? It is serious and with the three candidates will get much much worse! Do you know what chain migration is? Look it up. You haven't seen or heard nothing yet.

I am hispanic. And race has nothing to do with it. I simply don't believe Barack is ready despite what he says. The Rezko criminal trials don't make me lean his way anymore.I believe in Hillary because she has shown us what she could do as president. GO HILLARY '08!

Texas, like Florida and California, has a large Hispanic population, and their votes have gone to Clinton not Obama

How dumb is the person that started this thread? The title should read "Hillary is Losing Texas Voters"

She enjoyed nearly a 20 point lead in TX up until weeks ago. It is now in an absolute tie with less than 24 hour before the primary! Obama has gained incredible momentum in TX and the polls are showing it!

What is happening in TX is happening all over the country. She is losing! 11 contests in a row people! 4 more tomorrow!

See ya then....

Dodo sounds like another crybaby. First you have the woman, then the whiner and now dodo. What's next? If Obama was so far apart in texas all of a sudden he's ahead and is winning and the same goes for Ohio? How stupid can people be. Money, green, sellouts. Don't you believe in that? He's not that great to keep winning one after the other. Not even McCain did that and this inexperienced mutt is doing it. Oh sh.t. That's what happens when you have a biased media, polls that report crap and Oprah that's peddling her money. Not this time Oprah, Not this time. Texas and Ohio would be stupid to let this b.tch get away with it again and that goes for all the other a..holes and their threats.

You again listen to what the media tells you! Can you tell me how much longer she has served on the Senate versus Obama?
Or perhaps you consider sleeping with the President "experience"??(And she obviously sucked at that too! hence the name Monica!)
Andwer the first question.....
Ok I will try my best to "andwer" the question. She has experience on the state level as first lady of Arkansas,(and don't tell me that doesn't count) First-hand in the White House as First Lady, and as Senator of New York, which she has had more of. She has been in Washington far longer than Obama has, no arguement there. We must also not forget that back in the 70's she was out here in Texas registering voters, Obama was just a child then. She has got the EXPERIENCE, no doubt about it, and she has showed us what she can do. Obama has not. GO HILLARY '08!

Clinton's NAFTA-gate? Posted: Thursday, March 06, 2008 3:37 PM by Domenico Montanaro
Filed Under: 2008, Clinton, Obama
From NBC’s Domenico Montanaro
Per the Toronto Globe and Mail, in a story that was the lead on the paper’s front page today, that call to the Canadian embassy was actually from the Clinton campaign, not Obama’s:

“Mr.[Ian] Brodie,[PM Harper’s chief of staff], during the media lockup for the Feb. 26 budget, stopped to chat with several journalists, and was surrounded by a group from CTV. The conversation turned to the pledges to renegotiate the North American free-trade agreement made by the two Democratic contenders, Mr. Obama and New York Senator Hillary Clinton.

“Mr. Brodie, apparently seeking to play down the potential impact on Canada, told the reporters the threat was not serious, and that someone from Ms. Clinton's campaign had even contacted Canadian diplomats to tell them not to worry because the NAFTA threats were mostly political posturing. The Canadian Press cited an unnamed source last night as saying that several people overheard the remark.

“The news agency quoted that source as saying that Mr. Brodie said that someone from Ms. Clinton's campaign called and was ‘telling the embassy to take it with a grain of salt.’

“The story was followed by CTV's Washington bureau chief, Tom Clark, who reported that the Obama campaign, not the Clinton's, had reassured Canadian diplomats.

“Mr. Clark cited unnamed Canadian sources in his initial report. There was no explanation last night for why Mr. Brodie was said to have referred to the Clinton campaign but the news report was about the Obama campaign.”

your not fooling me,i work with a mexican and he wants clinton for president too. hispanics dont want blacks to have more political power than them, but blacks are more worried how there skin looks than advancing their race so you dont have to worry to much about hispanics not gaining political power. youll eventually get what you want.
