This is not a reflection of actual political beliefs. This is an example of what corporations and business leaders tend to do in elections--bet on a winner. If they do that and donate money, they gain more political influence. That's how the system works. There's a long history of it, and Murdoch, neocon beliefs notwithstanding, is no exception.

who cares what that manipulating shrunken head doll says? He wants Obama to get the nomination so that Obama can lose all 50 states to McCain. For crying out loud, super rich folks only care about lower taxes for the super rich and that's what McCain brings to the rich.

Only Hillary can win folks, face it or lose to McCain in Nov.

Obama 08! I'm sick of the Clinton's mess. There was a time when the Clintons had my respect, but not anymore. How could a family that so many people had high hopes for stoop so low just to gain power. Mrs. Clinton doesn't deserve the nomination ever. I can't stand to look at her on TV any longer. I only hope that the public and Senator Obama can forgive her for what she's done.

I don't think we should get to excited over Murdoch's glowing comments regarding Obama, since we know he also owns the Wall Street Journal. Maybe he just was more against Hillary, than for Obama. It's good though that he admits the truth about Barack.

Interesting Silence from Clinton & McCain supporters. Nothing...1 post that's it.

When the man is right he is right. It is this brilliance that built him an empire, he obviously has great foresight to see that the next President of the United States will be President Obama.
