Clinton's Last Minute Attempt in Mississippi

Hillary Clinton is making a late run at Barack Obama in Mississippi by way of a TV ad she also aired in Texas. The ad discusses Clinton's plans to create jobs, improve the economy and end "giveaways for corporate special interests."

While Clinton is not expected to win the Magnolia State, the economic themes of the TV ad play into her campaign's last-minute strategy.

"I think it'll be a tighter race, and primarily because the Clintons have worked so hard this last week," says Sid Salter, columnist with The Clarion-Ledger in Jackson, Miss. Salter suggests that several weekend campaign stops by Bill, Hillary and Chelsea Clinton may have helped close the gap among some of the state's Democrats.

"The Clintons have concentrated their efforts in areas of the state where you had blue-collar, rural white populations, and they have strongly contested the support of White Democrats," Salter said. "It's clear to me that the Clintons are not exactly ceding the African-American vote to Obama in Mississippi, but they are concentrating on shoring up their numbers among blue-collar whites."

An ad about "leveling the playing field against the special interests," cutting taxes for working families and investing in job training programs may help close that gap.

(You can hear more from Salter on Tuesday's Post Politics Podcast.)

Personally I find very interesting the proud with Sen. Clinton gladly accepted the endorsement of Gov. Spitzer (now officially involved in prostitution ring
http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2008/03/10/AR2008031001482.html?hpid=topnews)

It is wonderful how this woman can still claim to have judgement and experience and how short she is in understanding people and situation :-)

http://hillaryclintonnews.blogspot.com/2007/05/sen-clinton-gets-endorsement-from-gov.html

Good luck America, seldom did you need it so much as now.

By the way: I find extremely embarassing how most reknown newspapers could not manage to recall the connection with Sen. Clinton. I checked New York Times, The Washington Post, CNN, MSNBC,...
Let's say the plain truth, I do not care too much who he endorsed and from my perspective this should not have much to do with the democratic primaries. Still I recall that for much less newspapers made their best to crucify Sen. Obama before the primaries in Ohio and Texas, pumping up a story at a time where it was largely not proven and turned out to be much less that claimed. Well, nothing more to comment, everyone has his/her own mind and is able to draw conclusions or to ignore everything.

She will not win Mississippi close. Not after Obama coming out today and quashing her little ploy of him on the ballot with her. What a joke. He will never run with her...so she can kiss his votes goodbye in the general election. Sorry Hillary....maybe you could run for governor of New York....lolol.

Posted by: Linda | March 10, 2008 5:09 PM

Again...don't be so certain that Mr. Obama's rejection of a joint ticket will resonate as loudly as everyone thinks. He comes off arrogant. People don't like arrogant and he has a tough time hiding it. She will not win in Mississippi, of course not. How can she with such a high African American population who feels pride, obligation and pressure to support BO? Please! But please read carefully, African Americans still like her and her husband an awful lot so it is a fallacy to say that she will lose the African American vote if she gets the nomination. She will not, well, except for the Kool Aid drinkers, but then there is nothing to do about that kind of voter, is there.

Breaking News!!! Major Political Scandal!!!

Large numbers of Republicans have been voting for Barack Obama in the DEMOCRATIC primaries, and caucuses. Because they feel he would be a weaker opponent against John McCain. And because they feel that a Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama ticket would be unbeatable.

Hillary Clinton has actually won by much larger margins than the vote totals showed. And lost by much smaller vote margins than the vote totals showed. Her delegate count is actually much higher than it shows. And higher than Obama's. HILLARY CLINTON IS ALREADY THE TRUE DEMOCRATIC NOMINEE!

As much as 30% of Obama's primary, and caucus votes are Republicans trying to choose the weakest democratic candidate for McCain to run against. These Republicans have been gaming the caucuses where it is easier to vote cheat. This is why Obama has not been able to win the BIG! states primaries. Even with Republican vote cheating help.

If Obama is the democratic nominee for the national election in November he will be slaughtered. Because the vote cheating help will suddenly evaporate. All of this vote fraud and republican manipulation has made Obama falsely look like a much stronger candidate than he really is.

The democratic party needs to fix this outrage. I suggest a Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama ticket now! All democrats need to throw all your support to Hillary Clinton. So you can end this outrage against YOU the voter, and against democracy.

Fortunately the Clinton's have been able to hold on against this fraudulent outrage with those repeated dramatic comebacks of Hillary Clinton's. Only the Clinton's are that resourceful, and strong. Hillary Clinton is your NOMINEE. They are the best I have ever seen.

You should be angry America. "This is not a game" (Hillary Clinton)

Sincerely

The Clintons are using Karl Rove tactics. I voted for Bill, but he has really changed. The Clintons will stop at nothing to get Hilary elected. If they are that dirty, we don't want them back in the White House.

Posted by: Deloris | March 10, 2008 5:39 PM

Recently, Clinton has won Ohio--the "Texas victory" is a figment of her imagination and bit of help from Rush. Otherwise she has been on the wrong side of the vote, and her offer of the VP to Obama reveals her inability to smell the coffee. She should return to the Senate, and work toward an undoing of the Bush wreckage.

Look, if the tables were turned and the number favored Billary - Barack Obama would have been sent packing on 2/6 - this whole process has become a farce - the DNC and the DEM Party are trying to ram their candidate down our throats - too bad the people are finally getting up and saying ENOUGH ALREADY - who in their right mind would want a divisive, boxcar of baggage, mean-spirited, kitchen sink throwing, win at all costs, can't run a financially sound campaign nominee to win - stop smoking the crack Clintonistas & get on board - OBAMA 08 - he's winning in delegates & the popular vote REMEMBER - he's in first place - he deserves the nomination. So don't go throwing FL & MI at us - they chose to NOT follow the rules - the candidates, including Billary VOTED TO OMIT THEIR DELEGATES - leave well enough alone & give Obama his nomination already - McCain is waiting...

let us not make any personal attack on a candidate for the presdency, even if we don't support him or her. Instead, we should focus on the issues and compare and contrast the plan each candidate has tabled for solutions. Senator Hillary Clinton has a more transparent plan to turn the economy around and provide a Universal Healthcare Plan.

BREAKING NEWS!
I traveled from California to Texas, and I saw the corrupt caucuses with my own eyes!! There was no structure, and out of 5 precincts, there were only two precinct captains for Hillary, and 5 precinct captains for Barack. There was supposed to be an eyewitness for both sides to avoid voter fraud in the caucus. BUT THERE WAS NOT. It makes me sick to my stomach. Hillary Clinton has had 1.1 million more democratic votes that B.O. has. Yes, he wins the causcuses, but he does not win the big states. If we were to count electoral college votes right now, Hillary would have 263- needing one more state to win. Barack would have only 189 and be no where close to what it takes to win the General Election. TELL ME THIS DOES NOT MATTER?!!

Donor hedging
Another McCain fan is Robert Wright, the chairman and CEO of SNL's owners, NBC-Universal. Like Michaels, Wright donated to Straight Talk America -- $2,000 in October 2005. But Wright is hedging; he gave $2,300 to Obama in May 2007 and $2,300 to Hillary Clinton four months later; he hasn't helped McCain's formal presidential bid. NBC's owner, General Electric, has contributed $1.3 million in the 2008 election cycle through its PAC; 53 percent to Democrats, and none to presidential candidates or their PACs.

I am always amazed as to how the American people have one, a very short memory, two, a very short attention span ( in believing everything that someone tells them) and three allow the media to let the Clintons always change the goal post if it does not go in their favor, how is it that Obama has one more states, and this idea that he won't get votes in the General is crazy, democrats will votes for him with his crossover appeal, he has accumulated more delegates even in Texan, and the media in wanting Clinton to win and overcome his lead so badly stated that the momentum was over, she so called won by less than 3% of the vote and now with the caucuses that is questionable.

Most of the votes she received at the last moment was due to the kitchen sink strategy, but those who made up their minds to vote for her, were not going to vote for Obama and looked for a reason, this Resko crap that the press is allowing her to continue to bring up, he is not on trial Resko is, you have dug and dug and the only thing that you can come up with is property that he purchased, remember Obama gave his money to charity, why can't we see the presidential papers or her tax returns to see what she did with Resko donations that she received, or his middle name or his wife's papers from college, let's not forget the scandal in about her senatorial campaign with Peter Paul giving her campaign 1.2 million dollars, which was never used for the campaign, never donated to charity, but there is a court case that is pending that shows Billary and Chelsea will have to testify on charges.

WHY IS THE PRESS NOT BRINGING THIS UP.? And her 35 years of experience is a joke and makes me want to throw up when I hear it, do the comparison of her 8 years in office passing legislation or getting it passed and Obama's 8 years in the state senate and 3 years in the senate and the important legislation that he has passed and how he has always been able to cross over party lines, but not Hillary the fighter who only wants to get back in to show the (Right winged conspirators) republicans and rub it in their face.

The bottom line is if Florida and Michigan are allowed as is to be counted it is not fair, he was not on the ballot, and so what if he chose not to by following the rules, and they Super delegates can wait for the Convention and choose Hillary, I will never vote for her, it will be McCain or stay at home, and it would be a sad day, because all the youth that Obama brought into the campaign not Clinton, she only wanted the youth after she saw what Obama was doing, just like she is insulting the states that she did not win, or have very small delegates stating that in the general they won't count. Hopefully you guys will read and learn.

Hillary Clinton is not a *itch, as far as I know. The Clintons are not gaming the system, as far as I know. They are not lusting after power, as far as I know. They are not hiding nefarious ill-gained wealth by not releasing their tax returns, as far as I know. The Clinton dynasty is not slurring and smearing Senator Obama, race- and xenophobic-baiting, as far as I know. They are not destroying the Democratic party, as far as I know. But we all know when Bill and Hillary are lying. Which is all the time.

OK, Katie1263. IT DOES NOT MATTER!!!.

If I use CNN's count, Clinton is behind by 147 pledged delegates, with 680 left to allocate (including those from the Texas caucuses). That means, if my math is correct, in order to pull even in pledged delegates she will need to get over 61 percent (414) of the rest of the pledged delegates, or to put it another way, a greater than 22-point lead in the rest of the contests. That just isn't possible. And unless she can absolutely destroy him in public opinion, the super delegates are not going to take the nomination away from the first viable black candidate, when he clearly won more popular votes, more pledged delegates, and more contests (unless they want to see another convention like 1968).

I have to believe that she is now planning for 2012 or 2016 rather than 2008.

Hilary has nothing to lose at this point by trying to wound Obama as much as she can. It's unlikely she will be able to win the 2008 nomination, but it's not impossible if she can somehow destroy him before August. Even in the more likely scenario that she loses the 2008 nomination, she's still better off hurting Obama as much as she can, because she's better off with McCain in the White House in 2012.

Running against Obama as a sitting Democrat in 2012, when he had beaten her before, would be almost impossible. But if Obama loses the general election against McCain, she can easily get an "I-told-you-so" Democratic nomination. It to her advantage to stay in the race and wound Obama as much as possible, as long as she can do it without alienating too many voters.

Posted by: John | March 10, 2008 6:56 PM

I had not realized there was so much hatred from the Obama camp. I guess I should have realized that politics is not unlike religion and folks get very emotional.

The bottom line, as they say in America, is experience and wisdom, both in short supply among all of the general leadership. So the race comes down to which Democrat can defeat the lame duck Republicans? It will be tough for either candidate but from my unemotional viewpoint and distance, it would appear the HRC would be more likely to win against the Rep. Which of course means the Dems will select BHO and then curse their stupidity for the next several years while the country continues to spiral down. I sure hate to see that happen but after reading all of this vitriol, scurrilous attacking and downright false statements, it appears highly likely.

I suppose I should go to Monaco early and take the McCain bet.

Posted by: Munchen | March 10, 2008 7:22 PM

Hillary's team has finally looked at the numbers and realized that she can't win. She won't win the pledged delegates and not enough of the super delegates will swing her way. It will divide the party and harm the Dems chances of picking up more House and Senate seats in the fall. So she is pursuing a course that will lead to one of two outcomes. One to convince the super delagates to vote for her anyway by guaranteeing Obama a VP slot. Then it will not seem to be a travesty if she wins. It can be spun as a victory for everyone. Or, she indirectly presses for the VP slot. She can't ask for it (Obama will likely turn her down), so they talk up the idea of a Dream ticket with Obama as the VP. This interests people and they buy the suggestion. But people argue that he has to be on the top of the ticket because he is leading. People all around drum up support to pressure party leaders and leaders pressure Obama. Eventually after much debate and talk of party unity, the plan is to push Obama to ask her to be VP to which she "reluctantly" agrees.

It is so irritating when I see people saying Obama won the black vote. And implying that is the only reason he is winning. On the flip side, Clinton has wont the uneducated vote. There was a report in TX when asked who are you voting for a Hispanic woman replied "the white woman" she didn't even know her name.

Why belittle the mans accomplishments? She was all but ordained the next president of the USA. You saw it as a birth right. she wasn't even prepared for this race.

Posted by: hhkeller | March 10, 2008 9:29 PM

What tires me is reading all about how he only won small states, red states, caucuses, etc. What do Hillary supporters think? That once he's the nominee (which he already is) the democrats in New Jersey, New York, California, and PA will suddenly all become republicans and vote for McCain? That's just ludicrous! Yeah sure, her most rabid supporters will probably switch to McCain as some sort of vengeance against Obama, but I don't believe for a minute that there will be some sort of exodus of democrats in those states to republican.

Also, the idea that all African Americans only voted for him because he's black is also stupid. Yeah sure, some have. But he's not the first African American to run for President so the logic fails. And Condi Rice would be last AA to get my vote. The person above is right, she would only hurt his candidacy.

Posted by: PHL | March 10, 2008 9:37 PM

The reality is that neither Obama or Hillary are seen as experienced with national security issues compared to McCain. The argument of change resonates far more effectively. Hillary herself says that she & McCain are far more experienced but, experienced in what? Deciding to go to war when we had conflicting intel? Why did Hillary not recognize that the administration was hoodwinking her? They played to her fears, just as she now plays to ours. I have no idea how this election will play out but, I WILL be disappointed if Obama loses. It will mean that fear wins again. Life is risky but we still go on, we still strive for better- we hope!

p.s. John F Kennedy lost the Ohio primary to win the general. Where goes Hillary...goes the truth.

"Now, one of Clinton's laws of politics is this. If one candidate is trying to scare you and the other one is try get you to think, if one candidate is appealing to your fears and the other one is appealing to your hopes, you better vote for the person who wants you to think and hope."

Obama 08!!!!!!!!!!

It's so funny how Obama has fooled so many people, at least Hillary is honest about her attacks. Obama denied the NAFTA-gate talks with Canada until today when it is so convenient that many Mississipians won't read it. The republicans HAVE been voting for Obama, many, many websites prove it. The caucuses have been corrupt, especially in IOWA. Obama will not win a general election. Older people will vote in the general election as compared to the caucuses. He isnotvery electable. He has done nothing for Illinois, how can he get anything done for the US. Obama doesn't know the first thing about healthcare and knows even less about the economy. I wish people would stop making excuses for Obama.

Hillary Clinton claims that she has the experience to be ready on day one. But she isn't even effective at managing her campaign. The campaign is replete with in-fighting, ego battles, and generally seems to lack direction. One of her campaign managers said, off the record, that she is "willing to learn" from the problems with the management of her campaign. And we're supposed to trust her to run the country from day one? Will she again prove "willing to learn" about managing the country? In all ways, the problems in her candidacy reflect the same shortcomings that came to the fore in her unsuccessful foray into health care -- poor communication and an inability to unite disparate groups. This isn't about experience -- it's about character!

Barack Obama is far more ready to lead than Hillary Clinton. We're getting plenty of "all he does is give speeches" from the Clintons. Look at it this way. All Obama does is inspire people. All he does is bring us together - young and old, Republican, Indpendent, and Democrat. All he does is inspire young people who have never been involved in the political process to participate in democracy.

Now I know that some people prefer a partisan "figher" like Hillary Clinton. But believe me, Hillary represents the status quo. If you like Washington as it is today, then go ahead an pick Hillary. She is bought and paid for by any number of special interests, and they'll all be happy to go ahead with business as usual. Hey, she may accomplish some stuff that may benefit you. She's enough of a Washington insider to game the system. But ultimately, we're all losers in this game; it's rigged to benefit corporations and the wealthy.

Basically, believing in Barack Obama requires that one believe that it's possible for Washington to be turned around. It takes people who are willing to get involved in the system and take the government away from special interests and give it back to the people.

Some people just can't believe anymore. I'm pretty jaded myself, but Obama really, for the first time in a long, long time, makes me believe that someone can get elected to the presidency without being ... slimy. Bill Clinton was maybe as charismatic as Obama, but let's face it, he was slimy.

Over the past three weeks, Hillary has held a veritable Bacchanalia in slime. Her campaign has thrown more mud than a monster truck. What befuddles me is that anyone would vote for her after running so relentlessly negative a campaign.

Barack Obama continues to run a fairly positive campaign, against all odds. All that Hillary has won from me is the absolute certainty that I will never, ever cast a vote for her. At least John McCain is honorable....

News Flash: Hillary Clinton is running for Presdient of the United States!!! That means she has to really want it. That means she has to campaign hard to win. That means that she must play tough. And she is.

Completely reasonable for her to suggest Obama as her VP pick. She intends to be President, but she feels Obama would make a great VP. That's a very positive endorsement for her opponent. Why isn't Obama saying the same thing - that she could be his VP? That would be the unifying thing to do, and isn't that what Obama's platform is supposed to be about? Contrary to all the reports of Hillary being a divider, this really just shows how interested she is in unifying the Party. With her at the top of the ticket, of course. But let's be fair, one wouldn't be running for President if one didn't intend to be the President.

People really need to stop questioning why Hillary Clinton has the audacity to be running for presdident and is absolutely determined to win. No one is questioning Obama's right to run or campaign hard. Hillary, with all her years in the hot seat, her key exposure to Presidential matters , and her strong record in the Senate is the last person who needs to prove to anyone that she has a right to campaign and campaign hard for this office.

Posted by: K | March 10, 2008 11:57 PM

As a Democrat, all the Hillary-hate comments make me sad. They mean too many in our party bought into the Republican smear tactics. Look at her Senatorial record--the stuff that is really all about HER as a politician. Allowing crap words to come out of your mouths that Republicans taught you is quite disrespectful. Even sadder...should Obama get the nomination, you'll feel you have a right to call either Clinton a hypocrit no matter if they campaign for him or not. Maybe Obama, like Gore, will ban them from the campaign trail...good luck with that...

Posted by: joywinnebago | March 11, 2008 12:14 AM

She CANNOT win. It's been over for some time now. And, she will have to answer for her decision to tear the party apart. Perhaps the people of NY will be treated to her willingness to do ANYTHING to keep her senate seat.

Posted by: DV | March 11, 2008 12:16 AM

Oh Hillary, she just can't win. All the kings men, and all the kings horses can not make Hillary win. She is a sore loser considering the high margin of 30-40% points she was ahead when the campaign started. Now both the Clinton's have gone beserck. The little Clinton still thinks she is helping her mom win the white house. But all we hear is that photo ops with the daughter is possible if you are willing to cast your vote for the mommy. Now the question of how close you get to stand with her in the photo is determined by how much money you are willing to shell for her mommy's campaign.

NEWS FLASH: SENATOR OBAMA WINNING, SENATOR CLINTON LOSING.
Senator Obama is kicking *** in number of wins, delegates and popular votes. He has won 28 states to Clinton''s 17. And he got more delegates in three of her wins than she did. Thats more than twice as many wins. She has been attacking him with lies since he won Iowa! He answers her attacks with truth. He has maintained his integrity, she just goes lower and lower! He is winning, she is losing. He will bring honor, intelligence and judgment to the White House.

Posted by: Jackie McDonald | March 11, 2008 12:29 AM

Obama is unstoppable. Hillary will have to wake up pretty early in the morning to pull a fast one on Obama.

Now that Hillary has determined that McCain will make a good commander-in-chief, and McCain is also in the process of looking for a veep, Hillary might jump ship and join McCain's ticket. A McCain/Clinton ticket is possible. Hillary used to be a republican before she married Bill.

Both Hillary and McCain wrote the war bills together, staying awake late nights while Bill was doing..(I don't know what Bill does at night nowadays, since we don't really know where he spends his time.)

Hillary's argument that in order to be a commander in chief you have to be a senior citizen and Obama clearly doesn't qualify that criteria.

Spitzer's an Obama-like creep who talked the same rhetoric to get elected. No one thought he would be this way. Funny, always the most smiling types end up being the most sinister. Almost like those creepy Scientologists, of which btw, I believe Obama is a target of- Oprah and her stupid L Ron Hubbard-like Earth book. The people we need to be worring about is the ones who act all unassuming and nice. Those people are Dahmers-in-disguise. Anyway, it's interesting to see that women aren't in no hurry to pay a male intern to, um, vacuum the carpet of the oval office. Notice, it is always the MEN who are doing these things. I give Hillary props for having withstood Bill's arrogance. She is IRON WOMAN. I am glad I voted for Hillary, we need some ESTROGEN on the Hill.

Clinton 08!

Last week was supposed to be a bad week for Obama but he finished the week with 13 more delegates than Clinton. He got more votes out Texas than she did and picked up more Super Delegates. In addition, he picked up 4 more California Delegates with the Official count.

He will win in Mississippi and all he needs to do is keep it close in Pennsylvania. He will when as many as 35 States. So much for Clinton's 15 State Strategy

Posted by: James P | March 11, 2008 1:55 AM

These blogs are worrisome. Do they represent mainstream America or just the extremes? If the extremes, which they appear, they quickly become boring and meaningless. Where does one go for a reasoned conversation?

I'm a Democrat. I have such great respect for Hillary and her obvious intelligence; she's remarkable. Yet, I am ever more disappointed with her tactics. She wants to be the Democratic nominee, but spends increasingly more time destroying the party's base in a "strategic" effort to win the nomination.

I simply can no longer support these political manipulations.

I now support Barack. Is he perfect? Of course not. But his consistency of communicating and representing his ideals and those of the Democratic Party means more to me....

The time has come to halt those who win by how far they can throw the kitchen sink. Hillary is a great Democrat and has so many other positives. Yet to me her message has been lost amidst the loud and devisive clatter of the shattered "kitchen sinks".

It seems to me that leadership should not be about individual ambition, it's about the hits you are willing to take for the greater good.

In many days gone by, before the advent of political gurus and talking heads, back all the way to our founding days, our statesmen and stateswomen cared more for the country than themselves.

Therefore, I will vote for idealism over ambition. I will vote for Barack.

Hillary supporters! Since most of you relate to ALL CAPS when you want people to really hear you? Note these facts:

ELLIOT SPITZER IS GOVERNOR OF OF THE SAME STATE OF WHICH HILLARY CLINTON IS A GOVERNOR: NEW YORK.

ELLIOT SPITZER ENDORSED HILLARY CLINTON.

ELLIOT SPITZER'S PROSTITUTION RING SCANDAL REMINDS OF BILL CLINTON'S AND HER CO-CHAIR ANTONIO VILLARAIGOSA'S CHEATING.

IT HAPPENS AND PEOPLE DEAL -- AND MAYBE IT IS JUST ALL BAD LUCK AND COINCIDENCE AND NOT HER STINKING BAD JUDGMENT THAT SHE'S SURROUNDED BY ADULTEROUS SLIME

NO ONE REALLY WOULD CARE...IF SHE WEREN'T SUCH A LIAR AND McCAIN BOOT-LICKING TURNCOAT TO THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY.

SO QUIT POSTING LIES ABOUT SEN. OBAMA AND FREAKEN RELAX ALREADY BECAUSE BEYOND YOUR UNNECESSARILY NASTY ATTITUDES DIVIDING OUR DEMOCRATIC PARTY? YOU GUYS LOOK SILLIER AND SILLIER EVERYDAY.

Seriously. Be positive about your candidate, sure. But the cheesy scare tactics and oooh-Obama-scares-me lies and exaggerations are really corny.

Save the venom for the Republicans if you just have to have a kitchen sink to throw.

Posted by: Julie, Burbank | March 11, 2008 2:20 AM

You Obama people are very vicious in your idiotic comments posted here. No wonder many of Clinton's supporters will not support an Obama election. However, one comment above is right. Republicans are putting money into Obama's campaign because polls show Clinton, not Obama, as the strongest candidate in November. I am still waiting for Obama supporters to tell me why I should vote for him. I have studied his state and U.S. Senate records. They are pathetic. I have talked with journalists who have covered him. They tell me he is an empty suit. I have asked university students why they are voting for him. They tell me they like his smile. Democrats need to get their heads on straight or sit in the back row for another eight years. Hillary Clinton will be an outstanding president.

MISSISSIPPI

We're praying you deliver us Senator Clinton as our nominee. This 'will of the people' big lead he supposedly has, is primarily based on caucuses that inherently only include a limited number of voters...which should make it a mute argument. Caucuses are skewed toward young voters in it to 'party', the political fanatic, and those who are free with time and transportation and health to caucus. Did your grandmother caucus?

When all is said and done, Obama is more devisive and inflexible. And now Rove says he's arrogant the way he flat out refuses to consider the VP slot

I kinda like Obama, but I trust Senator Clinton. Obama enthusiasts online are almost militant in their comments against Clinton, while the opposite does not apprear to be the case.

As far as their tax records and financial disclosures:
I want to know where EACH AND EVERY dollar originated from monies raised and donated on the Internet, online, for BOTH SIDES!

As you continue to read about Barack HUSSEIN Obama.. you find conflicting views/actions he has made.

I have been appalled that he has not changed his name to something more normal in mainstream America. Then I find out tht he was called 'Barry' most of his life.

Now he has found his 'roots' and goes by Barack HUSSEIN Obama.. Now I ask you, why...???

That is a p;efectly good sounding Muslim name.

That along with "I'm a Christian, his wife's comments about 'now proud of being an American, his taxpayer trips to finally meet his siblings, his daughters attending the best private schcols, his adversion
to the wearing the American Flag. These are all indications of an entirely different culture which presents a 'better than thou' type of thinking.

We hear about his BOOKS... well, we already know how well he presents himself on the 'political stage' so he should be evern better as an author.

Posted by: Bob | March 11, 2008 5:01 AM

As I said before, most of this blog is pathetic. I'm not too proud that I bother with a response, but I try neverthless.

For those that would rather focus on his name, and not the issues....even if you call yourselves part of the Democratic Party, you are a waste of time, and have a serious lack of intellect.

I'd go far as to say you represent neither Democratic or Republican ideals. In fact, ideals have no part in your politics.

Enjoy your time in muddy and meaningless politics. You'd rather have us hate each other than doing something good for our community. In this way, you have clearly adopted the self-serving and destructive politics of years past. Go ahead and spin your wheels in the negative and non-productive politics of the past. We'll simply leave you behind.

I'm a disappointed former supporter of Hillary. But I - barely - trust in her enough that she would be revolted by your comments.

If/when you wake up and have ANY appreciation for the ideals of America, you'll realize that you were part of a movement that would otherwise have destroyed us.

Good riddance to you.

You can tell Obama is getting mad when he starts using Malcolm X's line "Bamboozled" and Hoodwinked."

The problem is Obama is never angry enough.

Clinton's "offer" of the vice presidency is an OUTRAGE. If she were the front runner, it might be a valid gesture. But for the candidate in second place to make such an "offer" is insulting, at best. She's saying plainly that Obama should REMEMBER HIS PLACE AND GET BACK IN IT. She's saying Obama should GET OUT of HER PLACE -the "WHITE" House.

Clinton is no longer the "presumptive nominee." She has made of herself the "presumptuous also-ran". Maybe John Edwards can come back around now and offer Clinton the Vice Presidency. It would be little more insulting.

Meanwhile,Barack Obama will never frankly and directly call out even the most blatant racism - no matter WHAT happens to people of color, no matter, even how racist the slap he _himself_receives at white hands.

Dan Quayle was "No Jack Kennedy," and , sadly, Barack Obama is "No Malcolm X."

To Leigh and other bloggers who at least attempt to have an educated conversation of the issues: Thanks for trying.

The rehashing of the same issues by the same people--oftentimes cutting and pasting the same emails regardless of topic--has made these blogs virtually worthless. At times, I think workers from both campaigns write incredibly offensive blogs pretending to support a candidate just to anger the other side.

Maybe the Washington Post can start blogs that are monitored to remove repeat emails or off-topic responses. To Leigh and a few others--whether Hillary or Obama supporters, I wanted to let you know I appreciate reading your thoughtful comments. But it doesn't appear possible to carry on thoughtful discussion.

Posted by: amaikovich | March 11, 2008 6:37 PM

Hillary and Bill Clinton have made a significant issue about how the press is treating Hillary unfairly in their hyper-critical reporting on her and their "softball" reporting on Barak Obama. Hillary maintains she has been fully investigated by the media and Barak hasn't!

As the Tony Rezko trial begins in Chicago, Clinton and her surrogates are linking Obama to Rezko and the media is speculating about whether Obama will be called to testify as a witness in the case. Obama has always admitted he received $85,000 in contributions from Rezko which Obama has now donated to charity rather than keep.

Yet the civil fraud trial of Bill Clinton for defrauduing Hillary's largest donor in 2000 into giving her campaign more than $1.2 million, pending in Los Angeles courts since 2003, is now preparing for a November, 2008 trial. The discovery that is now proceeding after a February 21 hearing, and the pending trial, have NEVER been announced by the mainstream media.

Hillary was able to extricate herself as a co-defendant in the case in January, 2008 after years of appeals to be protected by the First Amendment from tort claims arising out of federal campaign solicitations she made. Her abuse of the intent of California's anti-SLAPP law after the California Supreme Court refused to dismiss her from the case in 2004 is emblematic of her contempt for the Rule of Law.

Hillary will be called as a witness in both discovery and the trial according to the trial court Judge who so-advised Hillary's attorney David Kendall when he dismissed Hillary as a co-defendant in 2007. A subpoena is being prepared this month and will be served personally on Hillary, along with Chelsea, Pa Gov. Ed Rendell, Al Gore and other well known political and media figures.

Yet the media has refused to report about this landmark civil fraud case- brought by Hillary's biggest 2000 donor to her Senate race, regarding allegations that were corroborated by the Department of Justice in the criminal trial of Hillary's finance director David Rosen in May, 2005. That indictment and trial was credited as resulting from the civil suit's allegations by Peter Paul, the Hollywood dot com millionaire Bill Clinton convinced to donate more than $1.2 million (according to the DOJ prosecutors and the FBI) to Hillary's Senate campaign as part of a post White House business deal with Bill.

The media - except for World Net Daily- has also suspiciously refused to report on Hillary's last FEC report regarding her 2000 Senate campaign, filed in January 30, 2006. In a secret settlement of an FEC complaint by the plaintiff in Paul v Clinton, Peter Paul, the FEC fined Hillary's campaign $35,000 for hiding more than $720,000 in donations from Paul, and it required Hillary's campaign to file a 4th amended FEC report.

In that report Hillary and her campaign again hid Paul's $1.2 million contribution to her campaign and falsely attributed $250,000 as being donated by Paul's partner, Spider Man creator Stan Lee, who swore in a video taped deposition he never gave Hillary or her campaign any money.

Lee did testify to trading $100,000 checks with Paul to make it appear he gave $100,000 to Hillary's campaign (admission of a felony) but none of that has been reported by the "overly critical" media!

Where is the outrage from Obama that the press is engaging in a double standard relating to his possible role in the Rezko trial and his refunding the $85,000 contributed to his campaign by Rezko- which Obama has always admitted taking. The media makes no mention of Hillary's role as a witness in Bill's fraud trial for defrauding Hillary's largest donor- and Hillary's refusal to refund the $1.2 million she illegally received from Paul, which she has denied taking from Paul ever since the Washington Post asked her about Paul and his felony convictions from the 1970's before her first Senate election in 2000?

What I see in this campaign is there there will be a point where there will be nothing anyone better would do to stop Obama and the only solution will be tricking the elections like the French people do in Africa.
The More everyone attacks Obama the more stronger he becomes.
When I see and hear people attacking his color and race I ask myself did theses same people study the History of America?Do they know that their foster parents were criminal in Europe and ran for refuge in the America's;
Thank God the red Indians accepted them.They now oust them and claim it to be their land.Is America Freer than Africa where they accept every person?How many black people are being killed in Russia,Belgium,France,Germany,U.s.a etc because of their color as compared to the white killed of their color.The Pale colored are only killed all around the world by Arabs because they don't want to REASON and UNDERSTAND that Muslims and Arabs have their own way of life which is suitable for them.
Is there Blackman,Muslim,Color in Democracy.Huh? Ooh maybe we can Give another definition of democracy."Government of the whites of the other colors" or government of the weak by the strong".
God Bless BillHill God Bless Africa.God Bless America.
