I think that the Robert Little piece above is quite biased. I have never written on The Baltimore Sun cite before and I try read the Baltimore Sun online every morning. But, sometimes I do feel that the some of the postings are more of a commentary than a news article based on pure facts.
I wish that the Sun's writers would stick to the facts and put less of a 'spin' on their work. A reporter letting their feelings slip into their writing is poor workmanship. People read the Sun for fact, not to be swayed in one direction or the other.
I don't think the Sun's writers have any intention of wrong doing, but perhaps they are unaware that their writing style wreaks bias.

Seems like emotions are in high gear today.

To speak to some of the perceived shortcomings of Barack Obama, we that support him don't really consider race, ethnicity, religion or political party are not really the determining factor.

His Approach is the most important factor. After having Bush for 8 years, anyone that is ready to work with people of every race, ethnicity, religion and political party will get my vote. I voted republican before, but it is time for a change.

Unity and a willingness to compromise are key. There are good ideas from each party, but they never get passed into law because no one is willing to support the other sides legislation. We need a President that will set the right tone and example. This tone is also important with our Friends and Enemies around the world.

On the question of not having any stated positions, I recommend that you check out this section of his site:

http://www.barackobama.com/issues/

His plans are pretty detailed, like:

Taxes -
Obama will cut income taxes by $1,000 for working families to offset the payroll tax they pay.

Education -
Create the American Opportunity Tax Credit: Obama will make college affordable for all Americans by creating a new American Opportunity Tax Credit. This universal and fully refundable credit will ensure that the first $4,000 of a college education is completely free for most Americans, and will cover two-thirds the cost of tuition at the average public college or university and make community college tuition completely free for most students.

There at least a hundred such plans on topics ranging from Energy to Defense. You may not agree with the positions, but he has stated them for the record.

It's ok to support Hillary without getting angry at those of us who support Obama. I'm sure there is a convincing case to make on her behalf and if done so, I am sure she will win in the upcoming MD primary.

Happy Campaigning :).

Yes we need HELP and not HOPE!!!!!!!!!!

As a doctor, I am convinced Hillary is our only choice to save healthcare for all people. Obama's plan is weak and frightening. Cutting costs is not a safe way to go.

People of Maryland, D.C. and Virginia it is up to you.

As an avid Hillary Clinton supporter I can tell you for certain my family and friends would NEVER VOTE FOR OBAMA, he is only concerned with black America. The media has pushed him down our throats, dismissing and attacking very good candidates. The saddest part I believe that people supporting Obama are doing so based it on media coverage alone. CNN exit polls were asking voters about Obama issues and NONE, I repeat NONE could tell you where he stood on anything. Being an inspirational speaker is nice for church, but is not what we need in our President. It is a great disservice to our great country that the main stream media continuingly manipulating the Presidential election with biased untruthful so-called news. The likes of Bill Kristol, Roland Martin, Tucker Carlson and the other idiots of MSNBC completely use their media avenue to bash and attack Hillary Clinton and her family. My question is why are these guys so afraid of Hillary? Did she beat Kristol and Carlson up in the parking lot? Do they just hate all women? Appears so. I honestly feel they are part of the media who is extremely afraid to say anything negative about the Black candidate even if it’s true, but will attack the former first lady, two terms Senator and yes, A HONORABLE WHITE WOMAN. My family and friends stopped watching FOX and MSNBC for these exact reasons. None of the news media is unbiased. They built Clinton up early on as the sure thing only to tear her apart. I frankly am very offended as a white male that Michelle Obama is allowed to tout racism in every speech only addressing blacks, stating if you are dark skinned and do not vote for Obama your against your race. Then ALL white voters and woman voters should vote for Clinton, since Michelle obama insists on using skin color and gender to elect our President. Its take frustrated and angry voters to research and blog obama facts, since NO news media will report on Obamas failed and missed votes in senate, lack of good judgment, his constant voting with Bush on economy issues and supporting Bush on not withdrawing troops. His constant flip flopping on Abortion, gun control and voting to with republicans siding with credit card companies raising interest rates over 30% causing hard ships on middle class Americans, causing student loans rates to increase and yes for black Americans as well. Or that his health plan would also hurt his non-fan base low income Americans. He states people who don’t have health insurance don’t want it. Another perfect example of how he is not connected with working class Americans. I URGE ALL AMERICANS TO RETHINK THIS MOST IMPORTANT VOTE. We cannot allow Obama to get on-the-job training as a leader. I suggest since Oprah feels so strongly then let him run HARPO Productions. As for me I will continue to support the best candidate to help our failing country instead of selling out to main stream media who is just looking for a fight to get viewers and sell papers again at the great risk of our country.
PLEASE VOTE CLINTON THE ONE WHO IS MOST VIEWD AS COMMANDER IN CHIEF. Not obama the church preacher and race divider.
Racist much ? BTW- not that it matters , but Sen Obama does lay out his agenda , you choose not to listen because you are a Hillary supporter . I research, I listen and I fact check.
Oh and I also REMEMBER what it was like to have the last Clinton in the WH!Can u say ...controversy after controversy !

In the event that Obama does make it to the Presidential race I have no doubt whatsoever that he will never see the inside of the Oval Office.

There are many who would choose to assassinate him rather than have him sitting in that swivel chair.

I can sense another watermelon event coming on.

It appears to me that Sen. Obama's message to America is simple and in this sense he is the true conservative. He wants Americans, no matter who they are, to be proud again of their country, their leaders and their identy as Americans. Maybe, because of him and through him we will finally stop being Irish-Americans, Italian-Americans, African-Americans, Hispanic-Americans, white-Americans, black-Americans, female-Americans and the like, and become simply Americans, giving America the value and worth she is due.

hillary->70,000 job LOSS in upstate N.Y.(I live here. I know)

hillary->zero leadership capability; flip-flop on Iraq war; you don't stick your finger in the wind regarding war!

hillary->No foreign policy experience; cerimonial 1st "lady." Never had a security clearance.

hillary->7 years as N.Y. senator; accomplished nothing.

hillary->rapist enabler for bill, who raped JUANITA BRODDRICK; Put "clinton rape" in Google search you will have plenty of information.

hillary->defendant in Peter Paul criminal and civil lawsuit for campaign finance fraud. Trial opens for discovery proceedings on Feb. 21 (this month).

hilary->health care failure in 1994; wants to set up communist style national health system that will have an annual cost of $110 billion dollars.

hillary->lied about absurd 5 trillion dollar surplus during bill's term. FACT: clinton left Bush with a 132 billion dollar deficit. Don't take my word. Go to the treasury department's website.

America at this point in time is NOT ready for a female president. Especially in this time of war, with a retrograde ideology such as radical islam. I have a number of academic colleagues who are Muslims. I have tremendous respect and affection toward them. Having said that, I also know at this time in history, the Arab world would not have any respect for a female president.

Adding this to the fact that the clintons have a long history of corruption, hillary rodham would make an abysmal president.

I am not an Obama supporter. However, I do know both of the clinton's are an anathema to this country. My comment to hillary supporters is: do some serious research about your candidate.
