LYNN SWEET YOU WERE PART OF HISTORY!
HOW DOES IT FEEL?

WHY IS THE MEDIA PUTTING SO MUCH EMPHASIS ON ISSUES THAT MEAN LITTLE AND NOT ON THE REALITY OF RACIST HILLARY-SUPPORTERS. ALSO, I NOTICED THAT MCCAIN IS TRYING TO PUT HIMSELF IN THE POSITION OF OBAMA BY STEALING PART OF HIS SLOGAN. THE COVERAGE OF THIS ONLY AIRED ONCE. OBAMA HAS NO REASON TO GIVE ANY APOLOGIES. I THINK THE LAW SHOULD PROHIBIT RACIST PEOPLE FROM VOTING. IT SEEM LIKE SINCE A BLACK MAN WON THE DEMOCRATIC NOMINATION MOST FOLKS(WHITE HILLARY SUPPORTER) ARE FURIOUS AND ANGRY AT OBAMA. THEY COME UP WITH ALL KINDS OF REASONS TO JUSTIFY THEIR HATRED. AND THE BLACK HILLARY SUPPORTERS SEEM AS IF THEY'RE JUST SUPPORTING HILLARY BECAUSE THEY SURROUNDED THEMSELVES WITH SO-CALL WHITE FRIENDS. IF IT'S NOT IGNORANCE OR RACISM, WHAT CAN IT BE! I MYSELF LOVE ALL, BUT I JUST HATE THE ARROGANCE AND WEAKNESS OF SOME PEOPLE. HOW MUCH EXPERIENCE CAN ONE GAIN JUST BY TRAILING BEHIND ANOTHER AND AT TIMES VOICING THEIR CONCERN AND SYMPATHY... REV. FLEGER WAS CORRECT IN EVERY WAY. THE TRUTH HURTS, AND I THINK THAT'S THE REASON SO MANY HILLARY-SUPPORTERS WERE OUTRAGED BY THOSE COMMENTS. THIS COUNTRY REPRESENTS WHITE-DOMINANCE AND HATRED.

Mr. Smith, STOP IT! The moment is not over until Senator Obama - The 2008 Democratiic Preesidential Nominee's HAND IS ON THE BIBLE AT THE SWEAR-IN during January '09.

Yes, enjoy this nano-second of success but there is a long road ahead to becoming president.

Ms. Sweet, thanks for the coverage and future blog entries you will write.

Johm McCain is not George Bush. There is no Bush/McCain ideology. I don't think that they exchange Xmas cards and have barbecues together. When making a decision between the two candidates, base it on reality and not media hype and distortion of facts. It is truly unfortunate that we only have the two to choose from. Neither one of them is a good fit for a majority of Americans. The problem in these election cycles is that voters have never seen anyone truly unique and not beholden to their political masters. Ross Perot was probably the only taste of it that we ever saw, and then his brain quit firing on all eight cylinders. Lynn, you are one of the best Chicago politicos to be brought to the national scene. I hope that they call on you more in the future. Stay objective!

IF MCCAIN COULDN'T DEFEAT BUSH, AND ALL BARACK OBAMA HAS TO DO IS
CONVINCE ALL HILLARY SUPPORTERS AND INDEPENDENTS AND SO-CALLED
REAGAN DEMOCRATS THAT THEY SHOULD VOTE FOR HIM, WHAT MAKES YOU
THINK OLD MAN RIVER CAN DEFEAT OBAMA!
WE TRIED IT THE OLD WAY, NOW IT'S TIME FOR NEW IDEAS, AND I MEAN
BRAND NEW, SOMETHING THAT HASN'T BEEN IN THE WHITE HOUSE, NEW!
OBAMA NEW!
