New Pennsylvania Poll Shows Slim Clinton Lead

By Jon Cohen
A new poll shows Hillary Clinton hanging on to a slim lead in Pennsylvania, highlighting the breadth of Barack Obama's newfound appeal and the challenges Clinton faces should the race for the Democratic nomination reach the Keystone State.

As recently as two weeks ago, the Quinnipiac poll had Clinton up 16 points in Pennsylvania, but their new survey has her edge shaved to six points. The earlier poll was conducted just after the remaining Democratic candidates each scored big wins on Super Tuesday. Since then, Obama has gone undefeated headed into next week's critical contests in Ohio and Texas.

The Illinois senator's momentum has also translated into gains in most national surveys. A Los Angeles Times-Bloomberg poll released last night was the latest in a string of polls to show Obama picking up steam among Democrats across the country.

In the new Pennsylvania poll, Obama scored his largest gains among young voters, white men and those without college degrees, three groups that have, on average, leaned more heavily toward him in the post-Super Tuesday contests.

Two weeks ago, Clinton led Obama in Pennsylvania among likely Democratic voters under 45 and among white men; in the new poll, Obama is up 17 points among younger voters and he all but erased Clinton's advantage with white men. While Clinton retains the edge among non-college voters, her margin among those voters was more than halved from the earlier poll.

In the tandem Post-ABC Ohio and Texas polls released last week, Obama had a 10-point lead among white men in Texas, Clinton a 12-point advantage in Ohio.

50 Lies and Counting: Posted on Political forum.com - Elections and Campaigns by Latisha

1.) Selma Got Me Born - LIAR, your parents felt safe enough to have you in 1961 - Selma had no effect on your birth, as Selma was in 1965.

2.) Father Was A Goat Herder - LIAR, he was a privileged, well educated youth, who went on to work with the Kenyan Government.

3.) Father Was A Proud Freedom Fighter - LIAR, he was part of one of the most corrupt and violent governments Kenya has ever had

4.) My Family Has Strong Ties To African Freedom - LIAR, your cousin Raila Odinga has created mass violence in attempting to overturn a legitimate election in 2007, in Kenya. It is the first widespread violence in decades.

5.) My Grandmother Has Always Been A Christian - LIAR, she does her daily Salat prayers at 5am according to her own interviews. Not to mention, Christianity wouldn't allow her to have been one of 14 wives to 1 man.

6.) My Name is African Swahili - LIAR, your name is Arabic and 'Baraka' (from which Barack came) means 'blessed' in that language. Hussein is also Arabic and so is Obama.

7.) I Never Practiced Islam - LIAR, you practiced it daily at school, where you were registered as a Muslim and kept that faith for 31 years,until your wife made you change, so you could run for office.

8.) My School In Indonesia Was Christian - LIAR, you were registered as Muslim there and got in trouble in Koranic Studies for making faces (check your own book).

9.) I Was Fluent In Indonesian - LIAR, not one teacher says you could speak the language.

10.) Because I Lived In Indonesia, I Have More Foreign Experience - LIAR, you were there from the ages of 6 to 10, and couldn't even speak the language. What did you learn, how to study the Koran and watch cartoons.

11.) I Am Stronger On Foreign Affairs - LIAR, except for Africa (surprise) and the Middle East (bigger surprise), you have never been anywhere else on the planet and thus have NO experience with our closest allies.

12.) I Blame My Early Drug Use On Ethnic Confusion - LIAR, you were quite content in high school to be Barry Obama, no mention of Kenya and no mention of struggle to identify - your classmates said you were just fine.

13.)An Ebony Article Moved Me To Run For Office - LIAR, Ebony has yet to find the article you mention in your book. It doesn't, and never did, exist.

14.) A Life Magazine Article Changed My Outlook On Life - LIAR, Life has yet to find the article you mention in your book. It doesn't, and never did, exist.

15.) I Won't Run On A National Ticket In '08 - LIAR, here you are, despite saying, live on TV, that you would not have enough experience by then, and you are all about having experience first.

23.) I Have Released My State Records - LIAR, as of March, 2008, state bills you sponsored or voted for have yet to be released, exposing all the special interests pork hidden within.

24.) I Took On The Asbestos Altgeld Gardens Mess - LIAR, you were part of a large group of people who remedied Altgeld Gardens. You failed to mention anyone else but yourself, in your books.

25.) My Economics Bill Will Help America - LIAR, your 111 economic policies were just combined into a proposal which lost 99-0, and even YOU voted against your own bill.

26.) I Have Been A Bold Leader In Illinois - LIAR, even your own supporters claim to have not seen BOLD action on your part.

27.) I Passed 26 Of My Own Bills In One Year - LIAR, they were not YOUR bills, but rather handed to you, after their creation by a fellow Senator, to assist you in a future bid for higher office.

28.) No One Contacted Canada About NAFTA - LIAR, the Candian Government issued the names and a memo of the conversation your campaign had with them.

29.) I Am Tough On Terrorism - LIAR, you missed the Iran Resolution vote on terrorism and your good friend Ali Abunimah supports the destruction of Israel.

33.) I won Nevada - LIAR, no you did not.

34.) I Want All Votes To Count - LIAR, you said let the delegates decide.

44.) I Have Passed Bills In The U.S. Senate - LIAR, you have passed A BILL in the U.S. Senate - for Africa, which shows YOUR priorities.

45.) I Have Always Been Against Iraq - LIAR, you weren't in office to vote against it AND you have voted to fund it every single time, unlike Kucinich, who seems to be out gutting you Obama. You also seem to be stepping back from your departure date - AGAIN.

46.) I Have Always Supported Universal Health Care - LIAR, your plan leaves us all to pay the 15,000,000 who don't have to buy it.

48.) I Am As Patriotic As Anyone - LIAR, you won't wear a flag pin and you don't put your hand over your heart during the Anthem.

49.) My Wife Didn't Mean What She Said About Pride In Country - LIAR, your wife's words follow lock-step in the vain of Wright and Farrahkan, in relation to their contempt and hatred of America.

I am a REPUBLICAN..and I will definitely VOTE for OBAMA for President of the USA!

I'd vote for Mickey Mouse instead of McAmnesty or that liar married to a liar.

Dream on. Clinton has this one. The press can't manipulate it example Ohio and New Hampshire try. She won both and they were close too. I predict over 10% if not more.

$ years of the Bush's, followed by 8 years of the Clintons and then 8 years of the Bush's.

Haven't you people had enough of this crap already?

LST, can you pleae "Preview" your comments prior to sending them in. Nothing in your post looks like it was written by fourth grader. Just incase you do not understand that, I am saying that you are not a fourth grader.

One example follows:

OBAMA IS NOT SOUND BETTER THAN CLINTON.

Now that does not sound or read like a fourth grader wrote it. Try something like this, "Obama does not sound as good as Clinton" Reads a lot better and also notice how I used capitol and lower case typing.

So, to sum this up, LST your post reads like a third grader wrote it, so please do yourself a big favor, STAY IN SCHOOL or if you have managed to finish school, GO BACK and get your parents money back!!!!

Thanks

As I said before Obama will win because of the fact that he is right when he thinks that most americans are not stupid and want thing to get done that will better their lives and has ran his campaign based on that fact, Since the majority of americans today don't want to be associated with racism, sexism, or bigotry they have followed him and will continue to follow him into 2009

Clinton has lost me as a supporter with her extremely negative campaign. Why does she feel the need to be in constant attack mode? Her close mindedness to speak to people on the wrong side of her political views suprises me - she doesn't show great diplomatic skills by totally rejecting the idea of speaking to controversial characters. We wouldn't be in a dumb war if we had the smarts to converse......
Obama has won my respect because of his abilitity to communicate with all kinds of people. His ability to get the following of young people is most impressive - anyone who has the ability to get heard by teen agers has my respect.

UTICA -- When the Rev. William Procanick put his hand on the Bible during his sex-abuse trial in Oneida County Court earlier this year, he swore to tell the whole truth and nothing but the truth.
But as the former Clinton pastor was sentenced Friday to three years in prison for inappropriately touching a 7-year-old girl at his home last March, Judge Michael L. Dwyer said Procanick sacrificed his honesty the day he testified.
"As a minister of God, you got on the stand and you lied," Dwyer told Procanick, the 54-year-old former pastor of Resurrection Assembly of God church on Kirkland Avenue.
A jury found Procanick guilty Jan. 22 of first-degree sexual abuse and endangering the welfare of a child.

Obama was instrumental in raising the minimum wage when he was in the state senate in Illinois. To me, that counts for more than all of Hillary Clinton's weekly re-statements of who she is. She directly insulted voters like me by calling us "hypnotized, latte drinking elitists" saying "boutique" states like my home state of Minnesota do not represent "real Americans'. Now, suddenly, she is on a high horse about Obama allegedly being out of touch with people who support the 2nd amendment. Give me a break, Bill Clinton's campaign embraced gun control. Maybe, Hill has reconsidered the importance of guns after Bosnian snipers fired on her and Chelsea? She is real middle American, okay, as her husband flies around on private jets buying up uranium mines and giving speeches in South America, coaching leaders on how to circumvent trade agreements put in place to protect American workers.
Obama has inspired youth, and re-energized elders like me. If he wins, he will inherit the mess left by the Clinton/Bush dynasty, but I have faith he will the one who can turn things around.

Please, let's keep the comments free of abuse and disrespect for either candidate. I do know and understand the passion that each of you have for your chosen candidate, but let's remember that both candidates are human beings and both candidates have shown their love and passion and devotion to this country and both have worked hard to better this country.

What do you think our forefather's would be thinking right now? We have a DNC that is trying to silence the voices and votes of millions of Americans in our great state of Florida and our great state of Michigan. A rule that deprives amercicans of their civic duty is unconstitutional. You cannot create a rule that usurps the constitution and people's rights.

Remember the proclamation,"No taxation without representation". The people of Florida and Michigan are being denied their choice for representation, why then should they pay taxes?

I know that our media has not been a good role model, nor have they taken the lead, but we as americans should debate respectfully and fairly. It is okay to choose one candidate over another, but do it based on the facts and their records and not based on all the other hype. I understand that the Republican media is keeping this alive for their benefit. It is the media strategy that has served them well. But we must bring the word respect back into our culture, for the good of our children, and for the good of our reputation abroad.

Obama and Clinton deserve respect. So please, let go of the anger and nastiness. It is horrible to read.

I think that Obama will win because he believes that the majority of Americans are not racist or sexist and most Americans want to make decisions that will affect their lives and the lives of those around them in a positive way. That is why most of the major attacks in this race so far have been against Obama "the preacher" "The middle name association with muslims tying him to terroist" "the add on his in ability to answer a phone at 3am", even the attack on the press for being pro "Obama". Their are plenty of things about the Clinton's that Barrack could drag out but he doesn't because he believes that America doesn't want to base their decisions on ignorant statements like that which is what we have been pressured and frightened in to doing for the last 8 years. Instead we should base our decisions on facts and look for the real problems in our society and take full responsibility for those problems and look for a way of coming together and solving them. Barack believes that the majority of people in America believe this way to and is not worried about the racist or sexist bigots out there because there are enough good people in America to come together and solve our nation's problems that we won't need the others if they decide not to help.

Obama's efforts to connect to the Republican Party, specifically Bush, and Dick Chaney, of the Halliburton Company, dates back to the Presidents Grandfather, Prescott Bush, and indeed Chaney was once an executive officer of Halliburton.

The American military pounds Iraq with Artillary, bombs, and the like, destroying large sections of cities, and infra-structures, then Halliburton comes in to rebuild. Halliburton and Halliburton associated companies have raked in ten's of billions.

Obama is just like the BIG HALIBURTAN. Haliburton has contracted to build detention centers in the U.S. similiar to the one in Quantanammo Bay, Cuba. Halliburton does nothing to earn the Two Dollars for each meal an American Serviceman in Iraq eats.

http://www.halliburtonwatch.org/

Halliburton was scheduled to take control of the Dubai Ports in The United Arab Emiirate. The deal was canceled when Bush was unable to affect the transfer of the American Ports.

Now we see what some might suspect as similiar financial escapading from the Democrats.

Two years ago, Iraq's Ministry of Electricity gave a $50 million contract to a start-up security company - Companion- owned by now-indicted businessman (TONY REZKO) Tony Rezko and a onetime Chicago cop, Daniel T. Frawley, to train Iraqi power-plant guards in the United States. An Iraqi leadership change left the deal in limbo. Now the company, Companion Security, is working to revive its contract.
Involved along with Antoin "Tony" Rezco, long time friend and neighbor of Democratic Presidential hopeful Barack Obama, and former cop Daniel T. Frawley, is Aiham Alsammarae. Alsammarae was accused of financial corruption by Iraqi authorities and jailed in Iraq last year before escaping and returning here.

LIKE FATHER LIKE SON --
Recently, Obama's campaign staff have been vetted by the IRS to disclose his connection to the criminal money generating underworld. Besides, his connections to the REZCO MAFIA types, his up-coming tax fraud charges -- Obama needs to disclose why he is a MUSLIM "PATWANG-FWEEE" and disclose Obama's MUSLIM Farrakhan mob connection to Chicago's Trinity United Church of Christ. Its minister, and Obama's spiritual adviser, is the Rev. Jeremiah A. Wright Jr. In 1982, the church launched Trumpet Newsmagazine; Wright's daughters serve as publisher and executive editor. Every year, the magazine makes awards in various categories. Last year, it gave the Dr. Jeremiah A. Wright Jr. Trumpeter Award to a man it said "truly epitomized greatness." That man is Louis Farrakhan. Farrakhan and Chicago's Trinity United Church are trumpeting Barack Obama AKA Barack Hussein Obama as the second coming of the messiah. Obama should stop suppoting our intervention in IRAQ. It's time to introduce this false, fake Xerox - X box Obama and invite the self-indicting thief plagiarizing pipsqueke "GLORK" Xerox - X box to meet the Buffalo "GAZOWNT-GAZIKKA" Police Department Buffalo Creek. He is MAD!!! --

OBAM YOU'RE NO JFK --

"GLORK" Obama looks like Alfred E. Newman: "Tales Calculated To Drive You." He is a MUSLIM "Glork" He's MAD!!! Alfred E. Neuman is the fictional mascot of Mad. The face had drifted through American pictography for decades before being claimed by Mad editor Harvey Kurtzman after he spotted it on the bulletin board in the office of Ballantine Books editor Bernard Shir-Cliff, later a contributor to various magazines created by Kurtzman.
Obama needs to disclose why he is a MUSLIM "PATWANG-FWEEE" and stop suppoting our intervention in IRAQ. It's time to introduce this false, fake "GLORK" Xerox - X box Obama and invite the self-indicting thief plagiarizing pipsqueke Xerox - X box to meet the Buffalo "GAZOWNT-GAZIKKA" Police Department Buffalo Creek.

With Michigan and Florida, Obama Will Win Nomination by May 20th

For the past several days, the Clinton campaign has been clamoring for a re-vote in the delegate-rich states of Florida and Michigan. The poor judgment of the leadership in these states to move their primaries before February 5th and be stripped of their delegates, the argument goes, should not be held against the people. Their voices should be heard and their votes counted.

Of course, the Clintons haven't been quite as keen on democracy when it comes to pledged versus superdelegates. But trailing now by over 150 pledged delegates and 100 total delegates with just over 600 left to divvy up, this strategy, on the surface, seems to make sense for Hillary Clinton. After all, Florida and Michigan are big states, she "won" them both originally, and would be favored in a do-over.
However, looking a little closer, there is actually a compelling case for the Obama campaign to agree to the Clintons' request. If Michigan and Florida are put back in play, it turns out, it will actually speed up Barack Obama's victory. Instead of going all the way to the Democratic Convention in August (where it could get ugly and complicated), Barack Obama could secure the nomination by May 20th. Here's how:
According to RealClearPolitics, Barack Obama currently has 1,573 total delegates to 1,464 for Hillary Clinton. Add in Michigan (128) and Florida (185) and suddenly 313 more delegates are up for grabs. Let's say Hillary wins both of these states by 12-point margins, 56-44. This will give her approximately 165 delegates to 148 for Barack Obama, a net gain of 17.
That puts Barack Obama at 1,721 to 1,629 for Hillary Clinton.
Now, word is circulating in the press that 50 pledged delegates are going to come out for Barack Obama by the end of this week so if we add those in that puts him at approximately 1,771.
That's when the remaining states come in. Here are my modest approximations for the states holding primaries and caucuses up to May 20th:
Wyoming: 12 delegates (8 for Obama, 4 for Clinton) Mississippi: 33 delegates (20 for Obama, 13 for Clinton) Pennsylvania: 158 delegates (74 for Obama, 84 for Clinton) Guam: 4 delegates (3 for Obama, 1 for Clinton) Indiana: 72 delegates (36 for Obama, 36 for Clinton) North Carolina: 115 delegates (65 for Obama, 50 for Clinton) West Virginia: 28 delegates (13 for Obama, 15 for Clinton) Kentucky: 51 delegates (24 for Obama, 27 for Clinton) Oregon: 52 delegates (30 for Obama, 22 for Clinton)
And the grand total is...
Barack Obama: 2,034 (reaches the 2,025 threshold and wins the nomination)
Hillary Clinton: 1,881
Of course, the more superdelegates start jumping to Obama (which has been the trend since February 5th), the sooner he can wrap up the nomination. It is not farfetched at all to believe he could be the presumptive nominee by May 6th.
So send the memo to the Obama campaign: Give in to Hillary's demand. Let Florida and Michigan re-vote. It only speeds up the path to the magic number.
UPDATE:
Well, apparently my analysis is somewhat flawed. The 2,025 threshold, according to some sources, would increase to 2,208 with Michigan and Florida, though this hasn't been officially confirmed by the DNC and likely won't be until they set the new ground rules with the re-votes for these states.
Bottom line: I think this will be over by May one way or the other, particularly if Obama is able to do better than expected in Michigan, Florida and/or Pennsylvania.
Bottom line 2: If Hillary Clinton had any regard for the party above herself, she would drop out when the math becomes impossible to overcome (ie if she doesn't win Pennsylvania 85-15).

Involved along with Antoin "Tony" Rezco, long time friend and neighbor of Democratic Presidential hopeful Barack Obama, and former cop Daniel T. Frawley, is Aiham Alsammarae. Alsammarae was accused of financial corruption by Iraqi authorities and jailed in Iraq last year before escaping and returning here.

LIKE FATHER LIKE SON --
Recently, Obama's campaign staff have been vetted by the IRS to disclose his connection to the criminal money generating underworld. Besides, his connections to the REZCO MAFIA types, his up-coming tax fraud charges -- Obama needs to disclose why he is a MUSLIM "PATWANG-FWEEE" and disclose Obama's MUSLIM Farrakhan mob connection to Chicago's Trinity United Church of Christ. Its minister, and Obama's spiritual adviser, is the Rev. Jeremiah A. Wright Jr. In 1982, the church launched Trumpet Newsmagazine; Wright's daughters serve as publisher and executive editor. Every year, the magazine makes awards in various categories. Last year, it gave the Dr. Jeremiah A. Wright Jr. Trumpeter Award to a man it said "truly epitomized greatness." That man is Louis Farrakhan. Farrakhan and Chicago's Trinity United Church are trumpeting Barack Obama AKA Barack Hussein Obama as the second coming of the messiah. Obama should stop suppoting our intervention in IRAQ. It's time to introduce this false, fake Xerox - X box Obama and invite the self-indicting thief plagiarizing pipsqueke "GLORK" Xerox - X box to meet the Buffalo "GAZOWNT-GAZIKKA" Police Department Buffalo Creek. He is MAD!!! --

OBAM YOU'RE NO JFK --

"GLORK" Obama looks like Alfred E. Newman: "Tales Calculated To Drive You." He is a MUSLIM "Glork" He's MAD!!! Alfred E. Neuman is the fictional mascot of Mad. The face had drifted through American pictography for decades before being claimed by Mad editor Harvey Kurtzman after he spotted it on the bulletin board in the office of Ballantine Books editor Bernard Shir-Cliff, later a contributor to various magazines created by Kurtzman.

I do applaud both Hillary and Barack I think they have both ran great races. So all of this talk about idiots I think needs to stop. Lets talk about the issues and listen to the issues. Let us not base our votes on Gender, Race, or hatred for one over the other. Let the issues drive your vote. If we can do this, then our country will be stronger than it ever has been. We have one of the greatest opportunities in U.S. History. Let's keep it civilized and respectable. We can do that by keeping it that way between each other. We can disagree on issues with each of the candidates, but let us not lose focus on one thing continuity of the Democratic party, and the removal of George W. Bush from the White House. So let us come together to debate the issues and keep the negative words out of the conversation.

I do not think this race between Hillary and Barack is no where near over. I think we will be seeing these campaigns for sometime now. At first I was leaning toward Hillary, but I found myself considering Barack on many occasions. After tonight I have once again been shown Hillary has what it takes to be the next President of the United States. Let me tell you why I am voting for her, not because she is a woman and I am not voting against Barack because he is black, I am voting on the issues, and although the issues between the two are fairly close, I think Hillary has the stamina and guts to go after the Republican nominee John McCain, and if we want to get the crap out of the white house that we have seen for 7 years now we need someone who can really take it to the republicans and I do not think Barack has what it takes. I think Barack needs to grow a lot more before I can vote for him. If it came down to it I would vote for Hillary over McCain without a doubt, but if it came to Barack and McCain, at this time I would see myself voting for McCain, unless he has Romney as his Vice President then I would vote for nader. Sorry this is how I currently see things, and Barack would really have to change for me to vote for him.

Is Obama Lying or Just...Inexperienced?
By David DiBello

Contrary to Barack's remarks that the Bush administration created by default "Al Quada in Iraq" is blatantly false. Al Quada has been in Iraq with training facilities in outer Iraqui regions prior to March 2002. The difference now is they developed a name tag and party banner, but the surge has put a severe dent into ongoing operations.

Obama is embarking down the road less travelled for him this remaining campaign season, previously having an interrogation free press on his side, witnessed in every debate and confirmed by SNL this past week, never being hit hard by Clinton for fear of her seeming too aggressive and mean spirited.

The free pass will come down to haunt the Democrats this Fall if they choose Obama as nominee. Allegations of inexperience, especially in foreign affairs will not disappear, and despite protestations of admiration, the Republicans are salivating at an Obama nominee. This is apparent by their constant hatred of Hillary, and the votes for Barack in crossover primary states that are anti-Hillary votes since Barack has the most liberal label attached, and stands for everything Republicans despise.

Republicans are already voicing opposition over meeting with world leaders from terrorist nations with no preconditions, an act of weakness, or wonder the purpose of his withdrawing troops if he is in favor of sending back if a conflict re-blossoms. Does he expect a rose garden upon immediate withdrawal?

This past debate the Harvard graduate Obama claims to know no difference between denouncing and rejecting Farrakkan, which is the difference between saying "I don't like what you did," and "I want no part of you." He stammered at the forced "rejection" just as he stammered regarding his illegal immigration stance, although in fairness Hillary did the same.

Lost in the glossy rhetoric is the hemming, hawing moments; the times when he becomes unglued and tells people outright fabrications as "Al Quada in Iraq," but survives due to safe ground in front of a partisan primary group. This will change, if it hasn't already, with attack dogs like Karl Rove, this decade's Lee Atwater or James Carville, waiting in the wings with facts and figures, like referencing Obama support of Bush's intervention in 2002 and 2003.

These are more fabrications that will be unveiled by a McCain campaign already in full gear, and if timely enough, can flame the fires of buyer's remorse, as already seen in polls which indicate Barack supporters not as confident about their candidate as Hillary supporters are of theirs(1).

Barack has the ability to win the general election by ten points because of the promising heavy primary voter turnout by Democrats. However fear of a Barack presidency can coalesce amongst those not moved by primary choices, especially Republicans, and vote to deny Obama the Presidency based on such weak credentials. Conversely Obama could become McGovern redux, and Democrats need reconsider the former heir apparent, Hillary Clinton, who will have no fluctuation surprises in a general election, and a resume that warrants the Presidency.

People are finally starting to see Obama for who he is because his flaws and inadequacies are beginning to emerge. We will see more as time goes on.

Everyone: For the last time, JakeD and Ermias.Kifle are all one and the same idiot. He's a multiple poster--a racist ignoramus and rabid Hillary disciple who can't even spell. Obama's supporters, on the other hand, are erudite, transcendent, and cultured, just like Obama.

And Jack Smith, you are an idiot if you think longevity = experience and that experience = good judgment. You are an idiot if you think that Hillary will beat McCain, when all polls show that Obama is the only one who can beat McCain. It's reality check time! Please don't even try to insult the superior intelligence of Obama's supporters.
Hillary's supporters: Here's a surefire way to increase your IQ: Discard your blinders, open your minds, read Obama's two bestselling books, and check out his website. Remember, a mind is a terrible thing to waste--and so is a vote for Hillary.

It is so obvious that you are a Republican posing as a Democrat. No true Nadar supporter would opt for Hillary as an alternative. Your lack of political acumen is only slightly less obvious than your bigotry.

Who do you think you are kidding?

The only reason you are suggesting support for Clinton or Nadar is because you know as well as I do that either one of them will be much easier for the Republicans to defeat in November.

The latest Penn. poll is the latest iteration of a story we've been seeing all year: Hilary starts out with a mondo lead in the polls, but then as the election gets closer and both candidates start campaigning in the state, Obama starts to close the gap and often pull ahead.

Bottom line: Every week the campaign goes on, Obama's numbers go up and Clinton's go down. I don't see how this is sustainable for the Clinton camp.

um, asmith111126, have you deliberately been ignoring all facts about this race? Whether or not you love Clinton, you cannot deny the simple truth. Clinton doesn't win independents - Obama does. Obama even gets conservative Republicans who think McCain is disastrous to their party. In nationwide polls he beats McCain, whereas McCain beats Hillary. If Hillary would be so good against McCain, why has she done such a lousy job running her campaign thus far? Instead of making up statements and posting them, try getting some basic critical thinking skills and learning to apply them.

How Precious. An Eritrean (ermias tekle) who is running a smear campaign against Obama? Are your feelings hurt because Obama is not a wannabe Arab like your psychotic Eritrean leader Issayas who has tried to join the Arab League of Nations twice and been rejected on both occasions? You should if anything embrace Obama because he represents everything your native country (and sadly mine too) would love to have in a leader: a vision, an ability to unite and an unwavering sense of decency. I suggest you do what most Eritreans in the diaspora are doing and vote for the candidate that has America's best interest at heart...you may think highlighting his muslim middle name may discredit him but I think we both know that the real dissappointment here stems from the fact that he hasn't panned out to be the stand-up Arabesque candidate you were hoping he would be.

Notes from Wikipedia regarding McCain:

"Gaining the nicknames "Punk" and "McNasty" due to his combative and fiery disposition"

"graduated from the Naval Academy in 1958; he was sixth from the bottom in class rank,[19] 894th out of 899."

"McCain had extramarital affairs,[84] and he would later say, "My marriage's collapse was attributable to my own selfishness and immaturity..."

"McCain's upward political trajectory was jolted when he became enmeshed in the Keating Five scandal of the 1980s."

"Between 1982 and 1987, McCain received approximately $112,000 in political contributions from Keating and his associates.[112] In addition, McCain's wife and her father had invested $359,100 in a Keating shopping center in April 1986, a year before McCain met with the regulators. McCain, his family and baby-sitter made at least nine trips at Keating's expense, sometimes aboard the American Continental jet. After learning Keating was in trouble over Lincoln, McCain paid for the air trips totaling $13,433."

At a meeting in 2007 on immigration legislation, fellow Senator John Cornyn (R-Texas) objected to McCain: "Wait a second here. I've been sitting in here for all of these negotiations and you just parachute in here on the last day. You're out of line," to which McCain replied, "F*** you! I know more about this than anyone else in the room."

Anyone who would focus on the randomness of someone's middle name, given to him over 40 years ago as an infant and coincidentally being that of a deceased and disposed Iraqi leader's last name is not a 'proud' anything.

You may as well go look for dirty words in a bowl of Alphabet soup and complain to the manufacturer.

Obama is clueless what is happening in US today. In yesterday's debate he mentioned that some sectors, such telecommunications, were doing great. How did he come up with telecommunications was doing great? Doesn't he already know that white collar jobs are the new area of outsourcing? If you look at telecommunication companies today, employment at Lucent is reduced from 90K+ to 30K in 5 years, Nortel same way, Motorola is shrinking rapidly, and the list goes on. Those jobs didn't come back, and they are still reducing the numbers, Nortel just announced today 2k more job cuts and 1000 outsourcing. All I see is Obama looks at the past to position himself to gain votes, but he is incapable of observing what is happening today or may happen tomorrow.

Regarding the Hussein and the African custome thing. Obama was not offended because he was trying to hide anything. He was offended because the comments from the Clinton campaign revealed a very mean prejudice against other nation's traditions. That man with Obama in the picture is a very respected elder of the North Tribes in Kenya, so Obama is upset with the disrespect for that Elder, and not afraid of anything as you KKK fearmongerings are trying to imply.
