I hope the super delegates will start coming out now for Hillary.

if the supers come out for a looser like hillary, they will be looking for new jobs when they come up for re-election, please lets get real. this is really getting silly, and penn looks more and more like alabama during the 60s. hillary is making a joke of this whole process, if our fonding fathers were here to see this, they would go back to england. also since when is it fashionable to pander women because you are a woman, i don't remember seeing thatcher doing that when she was prime minister of great britton.

It was her last victory. She isn't going to win Indiana or North Carolina to close the deal. She's still down in votes, caucuses, and delegates. They aren't going to count Florida and Michigan just to give her hope. She'll be doing well to keep her Senate seat for New York in 2010.

Face it, the states she's won, in most cases by slim margins, are basically blue states that will support which ever the Democratic candidate wins the nomination, just to hold Grampers McCain out of the Oval Office.

Obama has raised the bar by turning red states a bluer shade of purple. Even if Hillary can game the system into a nomination, the Dems will lose with her when those states turn back to the red.

An 8.9% margin is not enough for everyone to claim the tide has turned. That margin is reflective of the gullibility of the bigoted middle of the Keystone state, out to find any reason to vote against their own best interests. After all, only an ass and a fool would fall for that 'Barak is an elitist snob' tripe, coming from a woman who makes hundreds of millions a year. If the Keystoners really think Hillary has a single lick of concern for blue collar wage earners, we're already too late with their warning about wooden nickels.

It doesn't matter what the superdilholes do. McCain will whip either of the pathetic excuses for a presidential candidate that the Democratic party provides.

A VOTE FOR MCCAIN MEANS SOME WILL EAT IN BREADLINES!
BUSH HAS WRECKED THIS COUNTRY!
MCCAIN ISN'T THE SHARPEST KNIFE IN THE DRAWER!
OBAMA WILL DEFEAT MCCAIN, HE'S SMARTER, YOUNGER, MORE IN TOUCH
WITH WHAT AMERICA NEEDS!
MCCAIN WILL SHIP MORE JOBS OVERSEAS!
TRUCKERS WON'T BE ABLE TO USE THEIR TRUCKS, IF MCCAIN WINS!
MCCAIN NEEDS JOE LEIBERMAN TO TELL HIM WHAT TO DO!

TELL MCCAIN THAT VISITING BLACK COMMUNITIES WITH ALL OF THOSE
EMPTY PROMISES WON'T WORK!
MCCAIN SHOULD HAVE VOTED FOR DR. KING'S HOLIDAY A LONG TIME AGO!
A LEOPARD DOESN'T CHANGE ITS SPOTS!

Hillary Clinton was introduced to civil rights in 1962, at the age of 15. It was then she attended a civil right gathering by the late great Rev Dr Martin L King Jr. She even got around to greeting King and shaking his hand. As a junior and senior in high school, she was a babysitter for immigrant workers, that worked the fields.

In 1965 she attended Wellesley College. Upon her arrival, it wasn't long before she took a new black female friend, of hers, to an All White Church, in Wellesley Mass. The congregation was in awe.... In 1966, after becoming President of Wellesley Student Union, she was able to increase the black student enrollment and black faculties employment at Wellesley College. She was proud to say that Wellesley black enrollment had increase from ten (10) blacks in 1965 to more than a hundred (100) blacks in 1969. She also participated in other civil rights acts, rally against the Vietnam War and The Women Movement. One civil movement on Wellesley Campus still haunts her today, because two days afterward that, the Massacre at Kent State occurred. Doing these times in history, she could have been one of those fatality. Since Education was her number one priority, she didnot participate with the Freedom Riders.

Upon graduation from Wellesley College in 1969, she was recognized by Life Magazine as being on her way to become a political Meteor.

She was then offered to attend either Harvard or Yale Law School. Since Harvard didnot support Women Rights, she decided to go to Yale.

Obama was doing well before all his sleazy connections came out but now he has more baggage than Clinton, who looks like she's just carrying an overnite bag by comparison. Obama's campaigners have picked up Republican rants about Clinton to further their own agenda. Obama has been following the Republican play book to try to take out Clinton but that is going to backfire on him because Dems don't like Republican tactics. Hillary has the most comprehensive health care plan, knows how to work across party lines and has a history of working to achieve better conditions for all downtrodden social groups.

Evan Bayh may be the most powerful Democrat in Indiana, but he's also a hypocrite.

Bayh told three freshman Congressmen from Indiana to hold off on endorsements (they were planning on endorsing Obama because Obama campaigned for them) until their districts vote. So how come Bayh didn't hold off on his own frickin' endorsement of Clinton until after Indiana votes?

Taking advantage of the relative "weakness" of freshman Congressmen whom Obama helped get elected is more than just politics as usual. It's sick and disgusting vomit spew that only Bayh can brew.
