Hello, Larry,
Great job on your show tonight. I wish to vote for Michelle Obama as my choice for FIRST LADY !!
Hands down. She is dignified and first lady material, where as Mrs. Mccain is National Enquirer standards. Not first-lady material, whatsoever!

I also wish to vote that you never use the republican commentator you used at the end of your show, again. I will- as will my friends, turn the station if we ever see her again!
She lies as does all the republicans seem to want to do these days, and the slander of Senator Obama was degrading to your show. Not CNN standards.

Thanks, Larry, Great show...

Michelle obama protrayed herself as a person who could be another Eleanor Roosevelt. She is super intelligent, so aware of a womans needs in this age, and would not just be a tea drinker, as First lady. She appears compassionate, and so admiring of her mother. How many women are? Not too many. Let us get out and vote for she and her husband. it is time to recognize that an African American can attain anything with hard work and desire. Plus a great education.

McCain and Palin approach of enraging people at their rallies - that result in death threats on Obama will come back to hurt them - if they get elected. How can I, an Obama supportor, ever look at a possible President McCain with any respect after taking these horrid tactics, rather than intelligently dicsussing the topics, like Obama is trying to do. It is an OUTRAGE and they both should be ashamed of themselves. America will not accept them if they continue down this "mob anger" approach! I wish they would lead a campaign with dignity and respect! Quit trying to SCARE people. I pray to God that the majority of America feels the way I do.

Thank you for listening.

You need a format that is easy to get ahold of you Larry King, first of all.

But over all, you are the most unbiased, and fairest nest to CNN.

I am a mixed, so called African American; only by standards set by the US Congres.

Nevertheless, I am educated with a Bachelor Degree from a university called "CSU' in Wilberforce, OHIO!

Nevertheless, why can you accept AIG to accept BILLIONS - and sit in the SPA? Without acusing them of RAPE of AMERICANS, ABUSE and then asking for an additional $34 Billion?

FIRE THEM!!!!!~!!!!!!!

I feel Mrs. Michelle Obama did a wonderful job!! she is a very strong woman standing by a very strong man. She is filled with much grace and we need a woman like her to be our first lady. May God bless Michelle, Barack, and their precious little girls.

ELEANOR ROOSEVELT WILL ALWAYS BE REMEMBERED AS
A GREAT LADY, AND SHE FOUGHT HARD FOR THE
TUSKEGEE AIRMEN!
SHE WAS A TRUE AMERICAN, SHE DIDN'T PLAY THE RACE
GAME, IF YOU WERE TRAINED FOR THE ROLE, HER THING
WAS YOU SHOULD PLAY YOUR PART!
AND WE ALL KNOW THE TUSKEGEE AIRMEN PLAYED THEIR
ROLES TO THE LEDGER!
GOD BLESS MRS. ROOSEVELT!
GOD BLESS THE TUSKEGEE AIRMEN!

WHERE HAS MICHELLE BEEN HIDING? THE OBAMA CAMPAIGN KNOWS THAT THIS COUNTRY DOES NOT WANT AN ANGRY, MILITANT, BLACK WOMAN IN THE WHITE HOUSE. SHE IS AN EMBARRASSMENT TO HIS PARTY.
WHY DO YOU THINK SHE DID NOT ATTEND THE SEPTEMBER 11TH MEMORIAL SERVICE? WHY IS SHE NEVER SEEN AT HIS SIDE? HE MUST BE EMBARRASSED ALSO. HOW SAD!

I am always amazed by the way some people view the world.

Michelle Obama is graceful, engaged, sincere, positive, credible, and genuine. The world will adore her as America's first lady. History will remember this generation well for finally putting aside the racial biases of past generations. America has been a dysfunctional society since our slavery days and the hard fought civil war was over 143 years ago. Time for us to rise to the occasion. We are blessed to have Barack Obama as our President in these difficult and challenging times.

It that fear I smell coming from you?

A comment to BY REESE on October 17, 2008

Fear and hatred always brings out the worst in men. Obviously, you are so out of touch you don't recognize you are symptomatic of both!

Here's a prescription for you:
Get over it, get use to it!
