Have you any idea please how I can obtain a copy of the OBAMA CAMPAIGN 08 DVD, I have been trying for over 6 months to get one. For a long while the official website was sold out, now they are back in stock, but they will not let me order on the website. I have to phone w Chicago number which I have now done six times, it is an answerphone, hey ask you to leave your number which I have done with any response. I am only on benefits after heart surgery and I can't keep ringing.

Thanks John

This just taken from CNN news today: The state has a larger proportion African-Americans (36 percent, according to the 2000 census) than any other state in the country. And black voters make up nearly 70 percent of registered Democrats. Those numbers appear to benefit Obama, who's overwhelmingly won the African-American vote so far this primary season.

This was written in regards to the Mississippi primary that is being held today. Isn't this another way of saying the same thing that Farraro said in her interview.
