Obama to headline major fund-raiser in Chicago on Thursday.

| 4 Comments

CHICAGO--Frontrunner Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) close to clinching the Democratic presidential nomination, is launching a new round of fund-raiser events. He headlines a big dollar event Thursday in Chicago--still aimed at collecting money for the primary--not the general--election.

I just hope the postings from the rabid Hillary haters like Angellight will stop.
It's not productive.
Hillary (and Bill) will be needed to win places Barack cannot.
She is being reserved about the Rezko trial and possible fall out--but I think that is the REAL reason she's not getting out just yet. And maybe it's also why Edwards has refused to endorse anone just yet.
Will there be photos taken of everyone arriving and leaving this soirree?

Who on the invitation list, Ayers, Dohrn, Alsammarae, Wright, Mahru, Frawley, Mallay, of course the Rezko's will be tied up. Obama should give out 'straws' for party favors.

Obama's claim to fame was a neighborhood organizer, and a state rep, from the Chicago area. Michelle talks about being from south Chigago. Why do neither have any comment, or words to the community, on the crime spree in south Chicago? What did he do to combat the gang activity when he was in a position to affect, or try to affect, change? What is Michell alluding to as her role as first lady-women's issues? Is she going to use more taxpayers dollars for subsidizing mothers that have children they cannot afford? I'd like to hear some answers!

WELCOME HOME, JOB WELL DONE!
MCCAIN WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO WHEN OBAMAMANIA COMES DOWN ON YOU!
