I am proud of Barack Obama. He has really come from no where to being an inspiring figure for a new generation. His powerful message is undeniably moving. And it has given rise to his nomination in this race. He has proved to be politically savvy -- extraordinarily charismatic -- and genuine. My candidate did not win this -- and that's really a heart felt let down, I have to say. I think it's important to understand that Hillary has real support and a lot of passion has went into her ca...

Part 1: (Link) Hillary winning Ohio, Texas, and Rhode Island last night really sealed the deal for her Vice Presidential Seat aside Barrack Obama. She will unlikely win the nomination. I think that should be made clear. She is relying on quite a lot of things to happen in order to secure the nomination. In my eyes, to win the big prize she needs to continue to pound Barrack and reveal things about him that are questionable to the character he is attempting to portray in his speeches; she needs...

Interesting thoughts have been running through my head over the last couple of days. How great would an Obama/Clinton ticket be? It's our dream ticket, really. (Image) Obama could remain his hopeful, positive self, giving change speeches and delivering movement rallies to the people -- while Hillary can come in as the Veep Attack Dog and go after John ~McCain without mercy, unleashing the tough lady we all know and love, while defending Barrack Obama along the way. This ticket would bring ...

You know -- sometimes I feel like I'm becoming more conservative as I grow older. The Obama voter makes me angry; affluent college grad with his bourgeoisie harbor flat and his alpha omega gayki bumper sticker on his VW Jetta; wanting so much to just add that "supported the black guy" push pin to his pretentious liberal peg board. Meanwhile, an unpaid for war rages on -- and our economy falls to pieces. People are out of work -- sick -- in pain. The rich get richer ... so on and so on. List...

We often forget that we can just write a letter. Who knows if she'll read it; but I feel better having wrote it. It's important for us to understand that these people are human beings -- and they've seen and heard a lot of things. They have seen the inner workings of this crazy, but somehow functional government of ours. It's definitely not perfect and it definitely has in it some terrible injustices. But somehow, by the grace of God Herself perhaps, we live our lives and we pull through. ...

Hillary, I just want you to know that I believe in you. I want you to understand that I absolutely know that you will rise above and beyond all of this. I know the media -- the world of talking heads run by powerful men and unconscionable "neo-Conic" demagogues -- is against you now. I know that the polls look down and the challenges are stacking up for our campaign. But I see your Calling -- from my mother who cries at your speeches because she is debilitated by chronic pain from slipped...

WHAT? Turn on C-Span, Barack. They have the accurate times. :-) Obama said in the debate that missing the Iran vote was due to "Casualties of the campaign." How many passes does this guy get? I think he gets a pass for every delegate he wins. Or perhaps a delegate comes with every pass? I'm not sure. Something tells me that Republicans won't be so nice to him come Spring. I don't think they're going to play nice with the media darling, Barack Obama. The Republicans won't care about upsetti...

I am proud of this country for being a position where a black candidate can get to a point of gloating and over confidence. And I think you're right at the end of the day -- Hillary should not be underestimated. And I also think overestimation is a problem for any candidate. It's interesting ... I have watched over the last year+ as the news media has done nothing but pour on the Hillary Clinton bashing. They have all but given Obama sainthood. When in History has the "revolution/change" c...

I will be voting today in the Maryland primary. I am blessed to live in a time when I have a choice between a black candidate and a woman candidate. As you know if you read this site, I have chosen Hillary Clinton to be my next President. Serious times call for a serious leader. I am proud of Hillary and what she's been able to accomplish in this country as a woman. Women have been suppressed throughout humanity and come 2009, a woman will be commander-in-chief of the most powerful nation i...

Very nice. That has to be the best thing I've read in a while. Wow. W.

Is nobody outraged by the statements of Rush Limbaugh about Hillary being an "aging woman?" This is the kind of misogyny that highlights why a woman needs to lead this country. I am proud of Hillary and I believe she has earned every single wrinkle she has. She is experienced and has run a better campaign than anyone out there right now. This is a woman we're talking about -- a woman who has faced challenges for not having a penis since the start. Has this discussion board become so overly ...
