Somehow the American people need to see Obama doing not just better but much better then Clinton inorder that he may be allowed to win the nomination which he has already proven that it is his only.

Why don't Americans see that this man from Illinois is a totally different one from his peers and once in a lifetime does one such as Obama come to fill this planet Earth.

It is said that the 21st Century is Asia's and America will go into yesterday just like Europe is already yesterday today. If Obama does succeed as President then Asia's time can wait and the world will look up to America with pride not seen in a lost generation.

It is sad that Obama even though ahead on almost every count will continue to remain the underdog. I am sure he will somehow still overcome all the odds and rise to the occassion when the time comes and situation arises. He has already done this a few times now. If a new speech with new words is what is required, i am sure it shall be and it will be.

Barrack is a cool esse vato who can get the job done like in a different way. Hillary is a puppet to uncle Bill's circus. Let change happen vatos
and keep the oldies but goodies in the past. It's time for a new tune in the juke box. Orale Carnal!

great thoughts, I hope Obama's team work hard enough to find a common language with working class Americans, they are essential part of the American society and their voice has to be heard loud and clear.

YOU MIGHT BE AN IDIOT:-)

If you think Barack Obama with little or no experience would be better than Hillary Clinton with 35 years experience.

You Might Be An Idiot!

If you think that Obama with no experience can fix an economy on the verge of collapse better than Hillary Clinton. Whose ;-) husband (Bill Clinton) led the greatest economic expansion, and prosperity in American history.

You Might Be An Idiot!

If you think that Obama with no experience fighting for universal health care can get it for you better than Hillary Clinton. Who anticipated this current health care crisis back in 1993, and fought a pitched battle against overwhelming odds to get universal health care for all the American people.

You Might Be An Idiot!

If you think that Obama with no experience can manage, and get us out of two wars better than Hillary Clinton. Whose ;-) husband (Bill Clinton) went to war only when he was convinced that he absolutely had to. Then completed the mission in record time against a nuclear power. AND DID NOT LOSE THE LIFE OF A SINGLE AMERICAN SOLDIER. NOT ONE!

You Might Be An Idiot!

If you think that Obama with no experience saving the environment is better than Hillary Clinton. Whose ;-) husband (Bill Clinton) left office with the greatest amount of environmental cleanup, and protections in American history.

You Might Be An Idiot!

If you think that Obama with little or no education experience is better than Hillary Clinton. Whose ;-) husband (Bill Clinton) made higher education affordable for every American. And created higher job demand and starting salary's than they had ever been before or since.

You Might Be An Idiot!

If you think that Obama with no experience will be better than Hillary Clinton who spent 8 years at the right hand of President Bill Clinton. Who is already on record as one of the greatest Presidents in American history.

You Might Be An Idiot!

If you think that you can change the way Washington works with pretty speeches from Obama, rather than with the experience, and political expertise of two master politicians ON YOUR SIDE like Hillary and Bill Clinton..

You Might Be An Idiot!

If you think all those Republicans voting for Obama in the Democratic primaries, and caucuses are doing so because they think he is a stronger Democratic candidate than Hillary Clinton.:-)

It is SO VERY obvious from your pandering nonsensical tripe, you ARE an idiot.

Now what is Hillary hiding in her tax returns she REFUSES to release?

He ALWAYS has the RIGHT words!!! He doesn't need them anyway. The results of the primaries speak for themselves! There are three categories, and Obama is FAR ahead in ALL three!!! Popular vote, 700,000+,and rising, primaries won 29-16, after Wyoming and Mississippi, with 10 to go, and he WILL win 5+ of those, and the one that really counts, a 150+ DELEGATE lead after all the primaries are finished!!! ALL three leads are LOCKS, and WILL be greater, in ALL three categories, when the voting is finished. ALL of this is in black and white and can NOT be DENIED no matter how much Clinton spin, that is LIES from the LIAR, is said about it. DO THE MATH!!! It is a NO-WIN situation for Clinton!!! She IS the LOSER!!! Obama IS the WINNER!!! Obama will either BE the nominee, or Gore will be selected to break the stalemate, if neither gets the 2025 votes needed. The LOSER can not be given the nomination without total bedlam breaking out at that convention!!! They WILL say they did it to appease the Clinton's, and because of his race!!! MCCain WILL be your next president anyway!!!

As a white upper middle class professional with undergraduate and graduate degrees from prestigious schools, I don't fit the Clinton supporter stereotype IndependentMe posits, perhaps ironically. But coming from a lower middle class background where we nothing came easy, I am drawn to Hillary as much by her grit and tenacity as her positions on the issues (which, as has been often stated, are not that much different from Obama's). For his part, Obama is a brilliant orator and smart politician, but I have yet to see in him the fighter's spirit that we'll need to take on the Republicans. Hillary, too, can be a uniter -- see her record working with Republicans in the Senate -- and I passionately hope that she'll be our party's nominee.

The Harvard advisor with the big mouth would have been meeting with world leaders and framing U.S. policy.....let's look carefully at who will be advising our next President.....we have seen and are wringing ourselves out of the outcome of Bush's advisors. This woman must have acted like this around Obama at some time. He didn't realize the danger? I'm sorry but Obama isn't showing the depth of experience to know the difference between words and actions.

Yes, there have been similar mistakes in Hillary's camp as well. It can happen anywhere. But I thought there was a difference. It wasn't a top advisor, described as closer to Hillary than any other advisor, who made the mistake.

The simple answer to your question? Because he is NOT different. He has already been caught lying he is friends with a terrorist and he has shown that he is EXACTLY the same as all the other politicans. He is a politican not God.

It galls me to hear the arrogance of Clinton saying that some states are more important than others. It seems the only REAL!! important states that REALLY count are the states that she won. She knows rules. The one with the most delegates wins the election!! Perhaps we are forgetting that Rush Limbaugh got on the air and urged Republicans to take a Democrat ballot and vote for Clinton in Texas and Ohio. Here in Ohio, there were several locations that ran out of Democratic ballots. At the Texas Caucus (Probably mostly democrats) democrats voted 56 -44 for Obama. He will end up with more delegates than Clinton in Texas. Also Clinton wants the votes of Michigan and Florida to count.(as they stand now). The only fair way to do this is to have another election or caucus in those states. Clinton is against that. Why you might ask. It's because even if she were to win both of those states 60 / 40 (which she probably won't) she would still be behind in delegates, and more importantly, Obama would probably reach the goal of 2024 delegates if you add in the delegates of those 2 states.

There is not a dime's worth a difference between Barack Hussein Obama and Hillary Rodham Clinton. They are both extreme left wing liberals. There policies will destroy America. They both have one mantra: Tax Tax Tax Tax

Hold on to your wallets if either of these two are elected. There object is to subjugate you and make you dependent on them. If you like living on welfare, vote for them.

For the record, I don't think all Clinton supporters are "uneducated". And I can see how my post could be read as such. However, it's a fact Clinton appeals to more "uneducated", lower class, whites than does Obama.

Obama is a breath of fresh air and the type of change this nation needs. You're right, Clinton is a fighter. But so is Bush. And just like Bush, Clinton fights dirty. She wants to win at all costs. It's evident in her attacks on Obama. She realizes the numbers are against her, yet she continues to throw the kitchen sink, dishwasher, microwave, refrigerator and everything else at Obama.

America sees through her - at least the educated among us. America is ready for change, not the fighting and division Clinton seeks.

Through all of your lengthy comment, one wonders just which Clinton you are voting for? I certainly would not want the "2fer" that Billary would produce if she won. I in fact do not like any one who is running for either party. Can I vote "None of the above" and hope someone else will come forth? Come to think of it, who in their right mind would want to follow Bush with all of the economic woes, Iraq, etc.? No wonder the "pickens' are slim".

I disagree....I think that it is all about race. You are talking about non-educated whites with perhaps very limited exposure to different people outside of their world. They have a very difficult time voting for a black person. They may be Democrats, but they are the Archie Bunker wing of the Democratic Party....whether they want to admit it or not!

Obama has no hope of winning Pennsylvania. Mr. Hope and Change and Turn the page and tent revivals that are called political rallys don't set well with hardworking people who are living from paycheck to paycheck.

And the George Bush economy isn't going to get any better in the next seven weeks making it a more important issue than which republican Mr. Hope and Change is going to have in his cabinet.

Also there is no way the Democrats are going to win without the states of Michigan and Florida. Howard Dean is a fool. Obama is rejecting the idea of do overs (and I'm not so sure that I support them) making him look like he is afraid to go head to head with Mrs. Clinton in a primary (which should only be limited to Democrats)

Also I would like to see Mrs. Obama sitting down, as she did with either the Texas or Michigan moms with $33,000 annual income average telling them they should reject going to work in corporate America and instead go to work in community service or government or teaching. And how surprised her husband was to find out that it costs $10,000 a years for their children's extracurricular activities and camps.

This from a woman with a privileged upbringing, child of Democratic leaders in Chicago and ivy league college and law school and making OVER 300,000 a years in her CORPORATE job.

Where to begin.
1. Bill's economic boon was largely brought about by the dotcom bubble. His economic policies encouraged financial institutions to make ill-advised subprime loans to predominantly poor people entering the housing market. His economic team certainly didn't scrutinize the record profits of Enron, HealthSouth, Tyco, GlobalCrossing, etc. when they were committing their financial crimes during his administration.
2. Hillary's utter failure to pass a health care bill when she had an entirely Democratic congress is not an accomplishment to tout. Perhaps not holding the health care meetings in secret and threatening Democratic dissenters would have been a more effective way of handling it.
3. Bill's "war" experience? You mean like Black Hawk Down? Pretending the genocide in Rwanda wasn't occuring? Unilaterally bombing Serbia and damn near starting a war with China in the process? How about when Madeline Albright was having tea with the North Korean government, while they were secretly building a nuclear program after assuring Clinton that they wouldn't? How about Bill's bombing of an aspirin factory? Or refusing to take out Bin Laden when he had the chance?
4. As for Hillary's "experience", how do we know? She has yet to release any of her documents from her time in the White House. Should we just take her word for it, or do you think it might be prudent for the American people to have ALL the information before passing judgement on her self-proclaimed experience. I suggest you go to Politico.com and find the link to the article where an Irish Nobel Laureate is mocking Hillary's claim that she brokered the Northern Ireland peace accords.
