SHE IS FROM CHICAGO SO SHE HAS COMEBACK QUALITIES!
THE CITY OF BIG SHOULDERS MAKES YOU TOUGH!
SHE COMES FROM A POLITICAL FAMILY!
SHE IS A ROLE MODEL FOR ALL WOMEN, YOU FALL OFF
THE HORSE, YOU GET BACK UP AND RIDE AGAIN!
SHE LEFT ONE WINNING TEAM FOR ANOTHER!
BARACK OBAMA SURROUNDS HIMSELF WITH WINNERS!

Maybe Hillary should have fired her sooner, given her warm welcome at the misogyny central HQ.

This hardcore Hillary Clinton supporter is amazed that Doyle is part of the Obama team. Whose next? Mark "i can't walk and chew gum at the same time " Penn?!?
I want to beat McBush in the fall!
The Obama campaign got ZERO bounce from the overwrought recent trip. McBush seems to control the topics. And now we are going to nominate a guy for VP...personality-challenged Gov Tim Kaine..who has ZERO foreign policy street cred and might not even be able to carry his own state for sure. HUH?
Putting Hillary on the ticket would clinch 270 electoral votes. Looks we want to once again snatch defeat from the jaws of victory!!
It's mindboggling that this race is close instead of Obama being up 10-15%! Don't get me started!
