THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY IS COMING TOGETHER VERY NICELY, THE NEXT
PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES WILL SHOW THE GOP AND MCCAIN HOW
A REAL TOWNHALL MEETING IS CONDUCTED!

Without Hillary on the ticket, i still say we're goners in the fall. Hope I'm wrong. But the states Hillary won--those are key to an electoral college victory.
I do not much care for McAuliffe and Penn. I believe with all my heart that it was HILLARY quarterbacking the successful dem pres runs we've had in the past 30 years.

I don't care who appears with him on that platform. After everything Obama has done and said not to mention his associations. I will never be convinced to ever vote for him.

Who is Mohammed Al-Churbaji?: Key Al-Qaeda Terrorist "Abu Salim's" Son is Barack Obama Fundraiser; Islamic Terrorist "Mr. Mom"

Hopefully Rendell is talking some sense into the obama camp--about the fact that Hillary on the ticket wins for us in November. Hillary for veep! Take it Hillary please!
