Between North Carolina and Indiana, things are about to heat up to a rolling boil. As the Chicago Sun-Times put it, “Today, Clinton needs a game changer and Obama needs a closer.”

Which will it be at the end of today — the game changer, or the closer? This political season is all about the battle within the Democratic party. And as Conan O’Brien said last night, “meanwhile, John McCain is watching a Golden Girls marathon.” I sincerely hope that this is a decisive day. I am anxious for this to be civilly settled.

You all already know how I feel, so I’d like to just move past my own political vision for this country and open the floor for discussion. I’ll be watching the results closely tonight, but for now I’ve got questions for you.

How’s your candidate of choice doing? Are you concerned or confident about today? And tell me — who do you predict will win this whole thing in November?

Closer - all day! Truth is even if Hillary "wins" Indiana and North Carolina and wins a couple delegates, she's still behind in popular votes and delegates. I'm just ready for this to be OVER. So, lets turn our attention to the superdelegates. That's the only way this election will swing the other way.

Obama Rocks! I predict that America will have it's first black president ever come November. Obama is a destiny type thing; he's not Black America's president; he's the change America needs.

I'm praying that Obama will go on ahead and lock this down and stop giving Clinton a reason to move forward. As much as she irritates me, I can understand her wanting to continue when she is still winning states, coming in close when she's second and picking up superdelegates (much to my chagrin and dismay). I hope that this Rev. Wright think has run its course and that the media can just move forward. Hey, at least this whole brouhaha didn't come earlier. Go Obama!

I totally agree with Melinda. I don't even look at him as the "black" candidate. I see him as the man we need to get this country where it needs to be!

Obama all the way. Closer! I use to support Clinton but her tactics disgust me. Meanwhile Obama has been the Man no more than that the Human. We need that in our next President.

I am waiting until the ballots have been cast and counted because I just can't take the suspense!!! I'm in California, so I will probably tune in to CNN around 8:00 tonight. Its 4:57 now!!!!! OBAMA 08!!!

I am all for HILARY, SHE JUST AMAZES ME, HOW FAR SHE HAS GONE WITH OUT QUITTING. However I really think that the democrats should know who their presumptive nominee is by now. Look at the republicans they already have a candidate and are getting to know him better. I for one would never vote for a republican but recently I have noticed that I have been checking his profile and what he stands for in the issues that Americans are most concerned in. He actually is pretty impressive and actually has the most experience out of all 3 candidates. If he wasn't republican he could actually pass for a democrat because they all agree in most of the issues such as immigration, abortion and etc. Unfortunately for us democrats we cant relate to our candidate yet, IT saddens me because I can already see swift of votes to MC CAIN if we prolong this democratic victory. GO HILARY, I HOPE YOU DO WIN BUT IF NOT GOOD LUCK TO OBAMA MAY HE WIN THE PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION
