Well this is our country and voting for the wrong person because it logical to do does not necessary mean it is the right thing to do. People i beg you take a look at this person Barrack Obama before you make that vote. I would personally tell you not to vote for Barrack Obama for the following reason:
You definately do not want to vote for Obama, i am very worried of the company he keeps. There is this saying” show me your friends and i will show you who you are”, “Birds of the same feathers definately flock together” and Finally ” a fly without direction will follow the corpse to the grave” From Pastor wright to Louis Frannakan(Anti-semetic), i wonder what plans Obama have for Israel and our national security as he meet with the President of Iran who is pledged to the destruction of israel and current sponsor of terrorism (Hezbollah in Lebanon and Sadr Miltia in Iraq). If Obama thinks he can negotiate with this regime? The same regime that humilated President Jimmy Carter( I understand why every attempt at negotiation fails with this fellow after all he could not secure the hostages seized by Khomeni cronies during America Embassy incident). Well, i just worry for the sake of this country.

I know you really want Hillary to be president. I don’t blame you. She is an intelligent and strong candidate. When she announced that she was running I was excited about the idea of her and Bill being back in the White House. I was all about voting for her until I started to really look at Obama. He wants most of the same things as Hillary does. He might want to do them in slightly different ways but their ideals are very close. There are some differences between them I’m sure. But come November I will vote for either one of them if they are on the ballot because I know that they are both better than McCain. If you can honestly say that you would vote for McCain over Obama you do not believe in the things that Hillary Clinton wants for this country. The Democratic party will have it’s nominee very soon. We as Democrats need to stick together no matter who we have as our nominee. We can’t afford to have McCain win. I hope you all see that. If you are not going to vote for Obama if he wins why are you a Democrat? We all have our opinions and we want to see our favorite in the White House. Most Obama voters seem to think Hillary would be a great second choice if Obama was to lose. But it seem like most Hillary followers would vote for McCain or not vote at all instead of voting for Obama.
DO YOU BELIEVE MCCAIN WOULD BE BETTER FOR THIS COUNTRY THAN OBAMA?
If you think That Hillary Clinton is the better choice over McCain. Logic would suggest that you would believe Obama would be better than McCain.
I’ve actually taken a whole college course dedicated to Logic….. seriously look into it.
Logic is wonderful. McCain does not agree with your way of thinking. He thinks you are wrong to believe we should leave Iraq. He believes in most of the policies of BUSH. A man that 91% of Democrats believe has done and is doing a horrible job as President. McCain will follow in the foot steps of a President who is widely known and believed to be the worst President of all time.
ARE YOU A DEMOCRAT?
BETER YET WOULD YOU LIKE BUSH TO HAVE A THIRD TERM MAYBE?
Im not going to start saying Hillary should drop out. At this point its wasted breath. She will stay in until the end and I say good for her. This election has been a great thing for the Democratic party. An African American and a Woman both coming this far is amazing. It will be a great thing if we all come together and vote for our Democratic nominee because we will take back the White House by a land slide.
We messed up the last two elections. Lets not lose this one.

We can tell our Grand Kids that we were there.
We where there when the First African American was elected President.
And our grand kids will ask why we called him an African American.
Because maybe by then we will all be simply referred to as Americans.
OR we might say we where there when the first Woman was elected President.
I know thats what Hillary Clinton supporters would rather hear.
That time will come.
Lets take back the White House as a united people.
Obama will most likely win the nomination.
Im asking you all to vote for the logical choice.
The logical choice is not McCain.
Thank you,
That’s all

You people who are saying you’ll stay home and not vote because Hillary doesn’t win the nomination are just lacking sense! You sound like a spoiled child who didn’t get what they wanted from the candy shop and are going to whine about it all the way home.

Also, to the people say MI and FL votes need to be counted. Why? Why change the rules whenever they suit YOUR political opinions? MI shouldn’t be counted simply because Obama was not on the ballots. Also, if you want to include both states, then split the delegates 50/50. There won’t be a change in Obama’s lead but they’ll both be closer to the required delegate count. AND please quit saying this is Obama’s fault! It’s not his fault that TWO states decided to break the party rules that THEY signed off on to begin with! This country needs to learn some accountability.

She was elected to the Senate in 2001, Barack was elected to the state senate in 1996. Being a first lady does not necessarily mean she has experience! Should we vote for for Laura Bush next election since she has 8 years experience? Sometimes someone can make up for a lack of experience by using intelligence. Just because you lack experience does not automatically make you a bad leader and just because you have experience does not qualify you as a good leader.

Clinton begun ruling since her husand was enthroned. Now, however, what I wonder is the eagerness that she still has to be among rulers. Anyway, I would not blame her, I believe that power is like money; “The more you have, the more you would long for” and this is a continueous course. If at all the American people wanted to know who is best to lead, they would probably check more on the intergrity of the individual rather than simply voting out of passion or favoritism. Remember, the one you vote for stands for upto about 5 years till you can think of replacement, unless otherwise. Hence, this proves the fact that CLINTON SHOULD REST, and a brand new era, generation and ideology should be embraced soonest possible.

You might doubt me now, b’cause anyway, it’s your “birth right”, but in the long run…Yu will find out that, we all need: “CHANGE”.

Thanks

ErickBest

Because a McCain presidency would be just that. More preemptive wars, more dead soldiers, more missing money, more squandered money, more extreme-conservative Supreme Court justices, more attacks on abortion rights, equal pay, free speech and privacy…

If we do not come together after this mess is resolved, and as the other poster said, ‘hold our noses and vote’ for our second favorite democrat should our favorite not get the nod, we will deserve everything we get.

I’m not alone in my thinking that Senator Obama is still wet behind the ears.What exactly is Obama going to change about the politics in Washington?Is Washington broken?What does Obama have to say about our environment and what does he propose to do about green house emisions?Just because someone can speak well doesn’t make him presidential material.I may just write in Clinton’s name or just sit at home this November, I haven’t made up my mine yet.

She only “won” because of the Rush factor.
Our county is almost exclusively Republican but had an unusually high number of democratic ballots cast by what I suspect were Republicans….

Indiana voter

What I have a hard time figuring out is why you’d do that when McCain (a) voted against the equal pay act, and (b) wants more judges like Alito and Scalia.

There are dozens and dozens of other reasons for not voting for McCain but those 2 alone would I think be of critical importance to any woman who calls herself a feminist. Would someone please explain and not just use the typical responses that Hillary is more qualified -because the delegate count isn’t going to end up in her favor.
