She didn’t had a proper plan for the states to come after this day, nor had she any money left. The woman who always try to prepare everything got in a unprepared situation. Or if you turn it the other way round the obama campaign in full conscious of hillary’s strength tried to be prepared as good as her and ended to be better in her best field.

means Obama spent 150 million
and Clinton spent 50 millions

Why is she broken?

Where is the rest of the money?

Over the last decade we have US 4.1 trillions dollars in national debt How does she plan to do a good budget with our tax money? If she was outspent and has a large debt herself in her own campaign?????????

If Senator Obama spent 150 millions in the campaign she only spent 50 millions that is 3 to 1

where is the rest of the money?

Mrs. Clinton must understand that american people needs a president that leads by example. We need a president that represents the minorities, Why?

By the year 2050 hispanic minorities will be the US majority. By the year 2050 aging population SS and medicare will consume 56% of the GDP.

The reason she win the gneral vote is because her mongering fear propaganda against Senator Obama.

She threatening to go independent? do it, california, and texas will vote against her. Her behavior is inappropiate and a shame to white people.

Obama spent, with the entire media behind him, Kennedy behind him, Oprah behind him…why is this still a very close race???? Could it be that maybe he’s not all he’s
cracked up to be?

I don’t see anything wrong with Barack Obama spending that amount for advertising. He had the donations to pay for it!

He is not as well known as the Clintons, plus he didn’t have a former president campaigning for him like Hilary did.

(Former presidents generally stay out of the primary races.)

So lucky Hilary, and also luckier Barack, he was not afraid to say:

“I am in this race, to tell the corporate lobbyist that their days of setting the agenda in Washington are over. I have done more than any other candidate in this race, to take on the lobbyist, they have not funded my campaign, and they will not drown out the voices of the American people.”

…which is why I am voting for him, supporting him, and excited to think of who will be in his White House administration.

The reason why Mitt Romney is the Republican nominee is because of all that money he spent. Oh wait, you mean maybe the person who spends the most doesn’t automatically win?

The money is representative of a movement that has overcome the establishment!! Hooray for the people!!! Hooray for all people no matter gender or race or religion!!!

The Illinois senator has spent nearly seven times as much on advertising as the Republican presidential nominee, Arizona Sen. John McCain, who has paid $11 million.”

And when you add in all the free boosts from the reliably liberal press a) the figure spent over Clinton doubles that and b) tuning into any major news organization over the next five months will leave you with the conclusion that Obama isn’t even running against anyone.
