Hillary’s lying ability is sad, especially in the eyes of the American people. I am embarassed for her and my country for her such acts. Children watches the election and gets the idea, that it’s okay too lie, Bill’s wife does it all the time and he did it too. Well, what can I say?

Life-long Democrat here (now 65), and I supported Bill Clinton in both of his election efforts, but your candidacy for President has gotten out of hand. I understand that self-recognition and the ability to laugh at one’s self is a sign of health, but your playfulness around the Bosnia visit is so insensitive, cruel; just no room for bantering in the face of a chapter of the human condition that brought suffering, struggle and death to so many. Please don’t do that again; just no way to cover up a falsehood or exaggeration. That mistake was indeed off the chart, and I fear confirms an emerging family pattern of embodying “…the people of the lie!” Please, please refrain from such…and/or get some help!!

These are not qualities myself or my children hold in high regard. Hilary Clinton is a joke. Both herself and her husband have shown that they are uncapable of telling the truth, and make no qualms about lying to the american public. Shame on her.

Insulting. This makes me really confident about her leadership qualities. Will she lie and say whatever comes into her mind when interacting with other world figures, then get back home and say sorry just kidding? We need to return integrity to government. I used to admire her so much, but she has shown her true colors in this campaign and I am now another white, middle-aged woman for Obama.

Our opinions are our rights. People with passion and belief are truly amazing. How can we not appreciate what makes us who we are? But I watch people around me struggle with the pressures of today’s society. They are so stressed out and unhappy most people I know are on some kind long term medication just to cope with life. That’s sad… really sad. I just yearn for a time much simplier than it is today. Life was good, really good when Bill was in office. My desire is to recapture what we have lost and have that for everyone. EVERYONE deserves happiness, hope and to be fulfilled!

There is nothing funny about 1) Lying about being under a sniper attack 2) Getting caught in your lie and trying to defend yourself by saying you misspoke and had a memory lapse due to stress and 3) getting on national TV and making a joke about your having told the lie.

That was a huge slap in the face to all the service men and women and their families who constantly live in REAL fear of the consequences of fighting the war… The war that she voted for. I can’t believe she said that, how sickening!

If anyone doesn’t realize Hillary Clinton AND Barack Obama are very good candidates for presidency, they are fooling themselves. If you are a true Democrat, STOP the divisive non-sense and welcome discussion on candidate positions. Sometimes I think it is already too late….Democrats have divided themselves into two camps and if either of the candidates stands alone in the contest against McCain, McCain will win (current poll numbers are crap) only because of disillusioned Democrats not turing-up to vote. Only chance for a president from Democratic party is joint Clinton/Obama ticket ….and that I don’t see happening. So, better get ready for four more years of another Republican President.

Our only electable, HEALTHY, candidates are therefore, John Mc Cain and Hillary Clinton!

(Obama may break a smile occasionally, but that is the mask he wears! )
