Not only am I swamped with more work than I can handle, but then I get to wake up to this. Pardon me for speaking plainly, but ugh.

That was my honest and heartfelt response as I watched Headline News in bed this morning, immediately followed by an overwhelming desire to stay in bed all day long. Forgive my lack of eloquence, it’s before 9 a.m. here. And apologies to any Hillary supporters in the house. As a candidate, she hasn’t won my heart or mind. Just the opposite, in fact.

So apparently the battle is not over for Barack supporters, although he still leads the delegate count. Obama is a savvy enough politician to know that he’s got a hard road ahead of him. The media has taken the gloves off,and he’s getting shouted at by zealous reporters now. In some instances, they’ve got solid issues to latch on to — NAFTA and Tony Rezko. In others, their case against him seems more… vague. Case in point, this cover story from the Dallas Observer, titled My Drama with Obama on the cover, Obama and Me in the article. Full disclosure, I work for a newspaper in the same chain. So no more opinions from me, but I’m dying to know what you all think about it.

I’ve been encountering quite a bit of Obama backlash from naysayers recently, and the most common bleat I hear is, “but what does he even really stand for? All he does is make speeches.” The best way to deal with the haters is by informing yourself. The key issues of his campaign are clearly stated on his official website, and there’s also a fact check page, where you can find his response on most of the recent attacks. Educate yourself, so when someone makes an ignorant statement that immediately evokes a WTF response, you have an accurate and intelligent answer to give. The sweetest satisfaction is in silencing a hater who doesn’t know what he or she is talking about.

Even after last night, I still believe the slogan chanted at each Obama rally. Yes, we can! But it won’t be easy.

What do you think?

I'm upset. Luckily, the next smaller primaries/caucus (Wyoming and Miss) look good for him. And then on the PA. I'm buying my ticket home to Philly today so I can vote Obama.

That article from the Dallas Observer was an interesting read. When I saw this on the first page "His intelligence was intimidating", I immediately knew what kind of article it would be. Just a bunch of fluff. The article gave no real insight to what kind of man Obama is/was. And those other politicians that were mentioned who felt like they were being left out of "history" just sounded bitter. So is all of this just fun to people, a way to get your name written in a book? Or are people really wanting a change no matter how it comes about? I say, too many self-righteous people walking the earth. But I still believe it Bella...Yes We Can!

Dear Bella, Obama is still leading in the delegate count and Ms. Clinton showed her true color when she lined herself up with McCain on the "experience" issue. When the dust settles and Obama has won most of the primaries and if it comes down to the super delegates, I hope it's not a matter of how it has gone for a long time: You do all that is necessary to win the race and then you're told at the finish line, "Ah, Barack, you see we really didn't think you'd win, and ah, well you see there's this whole issue..." I hope there isn't a glass ceiling in the Democratic party Peace, Geoffrey

Its a very hard road ahead indeed. We have to be strong in our beliefs and hope that it is not "stolen" from him. He is still ahead. We have to work with that, he has to be a stronger candidate now and give it his all. Please let us remember also that we can cannot have him and Hillary fighting either, because then Mcain will come from nowhere and win. There is a great article by Errol Lewis from the New York Daily News who states that also Hillary and Barack better watch their backs before Mcain sneaks in through the back door. This has been a very interesting race. It will surely go down in history. Believe People "Yes We Can"!!!

I have to say I think their best bet (as I am not a believer that McCain isn't a threat), is to run together. I don't care who gets the top of the ticket...but they need to in order to lock this thing down. Hillary has the experience that Obama lacks, and Obama has the vision and the drive to make the changes that are neccessary. I also think that Obama and Hillary would be able to handle, well, the international issues that we are facing. Niether of them have completely won me over. I find them both to be exactly what they are - politicians that will say what they need to to be elected...with flip flopping (Hillary) and a bit too much idealism without the track record to truly back it up(Obama). I am all for change, Lord knows we need it, but here is what I know for sure: there is a war going on that is draining our resources and won't be ending any thime soon, the immigration issue that only seems to be an issue for those entering the country with dark skin ("Not the RIGHT kind of immigrants" I heard someone say), and an education & health care system in the crapper. I am confident between the two of them they could come up with the proper solutions to these issues. I hate that the run for President in this country has turned into some kind of effed up Friday night football game - with the mentality that it is US against THEM. Now, more than ever, we should realize we are in this together. Knowing that, they (Obama and Hillary) are both Democrats and should be working towards the greater good, no? I don't align with either party completely, I see points made by all campaigns - but I honestly believe that Obama and Hillary need to come together, if only, to show that Change can happen. That, or wisely, who ever makes it should pull someone in from the opposite party as their VP. I am just sayin'.

I am a resident of Clevelan,Ohio and volunteer for Barack Obama's campaign. We made phone calls and canvassed for three weeks to make sure supporters voted. Yesterday we were out in the freezing rain encouraging and reminding people to go the polls, we even provided rides. I am still HOPEFUL and will continue to chant "YES WE CAN" Obama still has the delegates and the momentum to win this nomination. I just engourage all Obama supporters to read up on his policies, just like Afrobella stated.

I was as disappointed as you were that Hilary won the states that she did. But I think it is better that the put throw out the daggers at Obama then later with McCain. In order for us to have the victory there is going to be some tough times. These are those very times for Obama. I strongly believe that he will be our next president. If you notice the republican numbers against the number of people that vote democrat, there are a lot of people that were republican that voted democrat. And a lot of those people vote for Obama not Hilary Clinton. She does not have a chance of winning the ticket because I know the Obama camp is going to work their butts off from now till November. What's the old saying, you can't keep a black man down. Hilary is going to put up a fight because she is a woman. I give her that. But darkness which Hilary is, can no longer exists in the light, which Obama is. ~ Diana ~ Shea Bath

It appears that the Republicans are extremely desperate as to basically commit a 'psuedo-fraud' and vote for Hillary just so Obama has to 'struggle' to win the nomination. Isn't this why this entire country is so "effed" up? I mean, whenever people are going to do whatever it takes to win there is going to be division, strife, and that is EXACTLY what the power hungry elite wants. A divided people is easier to conquer. And this goes for the Hillary campaign as well. It's completely disgusting that after all the two-faced tactics she's been using against Barack (rather then attempt to be more unifying). Truly, fellow Americans...are we that inept? Instead of integrity, responsibility, accountability, and the issues, we would rather vote for someone because they can apparently 'answer the phone at 3 a.m.' What the hell is that? What kind of "effed" up thinking have Americans developed over the past, oh, 40 years (since JFK was assassinated). So I tell you what...if you want our troops to continue their Iraqi occupation and want to pay $5.00+/gallon and want the medical insurance companies to stick around, and corporate domination of Washington, fine. Vote for Hillary. Vote for McCain. Just like Bush, you will reap what you sow. I personally, am tired of sowing bs politics and a paycheck where %40 of it goes to gasoline.

I know that she and Barack love the country and want to make it better place for all, BUT when did being a president's wife translate to experience for being president. I find that to be quite ingenious. She and Barack have pretty much the same experience. As a matter of fact, he has more legislative experience that she does. What type of national security experience does she have when she voted for the war? If people actually read, they would know that Barack has specific plans. Oh and why is she cozying up to McCain. She better get on the good foot and start doing the right thing b.c she has turned me off w. her campaigning tactics. Oh nyc/caribbean ragazza and Davina E, I live in Michigan and I went to vote in the bogus primary. I trekked in the cold and icy walkways to vote uncommitted. There has to be a do over in Michigan because being disenfranchised voter is not cool. ;( (Never had this experience when I lived in New England) The governor of Michigan is a Hillary supporter and I hope she will have the good mind to negotiate with Dr. Dean and the DNC to have a new Caucus or Primary. I even signed a petition to have a caucus in May. I will be there whatever day and time to cast my legit vote.

I feel the same way you do, Bella. Initially, I was a "fence-sitter" who liked both candidates and was of the mindset that I would support whomever the Democratic Party nominated. I really liked Hillary...but Obama slowly won me over and did get my vote in the CA primaries. I'll still support the Democratic Party's ultimate choice, but I have to say if that choice is HRC, I won't be as gung-ho as I might have been before things got so sticky. At this point, I would be absolutely CRUSHED if Obama was not our Democratic nominee. ~*T

I know this is going to make me very unpopular, but I am glad that Hillary pulled it out. As a black woman I cannot stand sexism and the racism that is going on. A lot of you people ar just voting for Obama because he is a black man, I believe that obama is a smart man and a wonderful person but I do not believe he is ready to President, Yet. I really do believe he is inexperienced. I believe that black america is just excited to see a a black candidate who actually has the potential instead of those Jokers we had before,( jesse and Al). I believe Obama has all characteristic and potential to become a good president but he is not yet ready nor does he know how the inner working of politics in Washington. I really believe he needs more experience, he has not even completed his first term as Senator. I urge people to really study the candidates before voting-Because it's obvious that republican want Obama to win because they believe that McCain can easily beat Obama. How easily we for get how it was when the Clintons were in office, and I said clintons because believe that when we vote for Hillary were getting Bill too, just as when we were Voted for Bill we got Hillary. When tthey were in office everything was good, the economy, foreign relations, etc. I am both black and a women, I am proud of my race and I am proud of my gender and I believe if we want real change we need to put a woman in the office

I think he can still win the delegate count. Hillary has so many problems with Obama's experience, his speeches, his this and his that. BUT she is willing to consider him as a running mate? Why consider somebody who is all about speeches as your running mate, Hill? Or is it Bill? Whoever. I also don't get the whole I'm a woman first voter rationale. Hillary has run her candidate as a dude in a skirt essentially, with the exception of her well rehearsed 'They're beating up on me cause I'm a girl' moment. AND THEN She has run on the basis of her HUSBAND's experience. Well gee, I'd LOVE to apply for my job by tacking my husband's resume onto mine, but I don't think it's the best indicator of MY capabilities.

Bella, I live in a suburb of Dallas and I just want to let you know, the caucus process was a nightmare last night! I early voted and still it was a total mess! The people who were over the polls did not know what they were doing, they were overwhelmed by the amount of people who showed up, and some people in our area even reported that they were not allowed to vote because there were not enough forms for everyone. It was a nightmare, it took me 2 1/2 hours and my best friend in Houston showed up at 6:45 and didn't even get to sign her name at the caucus until 2:15 am (now talk about being dedicated and making our ancestors proud!). Texas should be ashamed of the way they've dealt with their voters and I'm sure BOTH candidates lost votes due to it, because many people just gave up and left!

As long as you keep repeating a line, it gets into the national consciousness. Career politicians know this... most people get their information in soundbyte media rather than do the work to research the reality of the situation. I don't know a single person who spouts the "experience" line that has research BO's or HRC's records. She's claiming every year since she graduated college as experience! I don't know... the last time I applied for a job, I could only include relevant experience. If we are talking relevant experience, then she has less elected years in office than Obama. We have had politicians with plenty of "Washington experience" and all that has given us is more of the same. It's nice to look fondly back on the Clinton years in the 90s and think, wow how prosperous we were as a country... except does anyone remember that prosperity was the tech bubble... that burst? Clinton certainly didn't create that bubble, but he presided over a fortunate moment in time. I want someone less corrupted by Washington politics. I want someone less beholden to secret interests. If Obama is beholden to one sleazy real estate developer, I can live with that. The Clintons are the LAST people to talk sleazy real estate deals... Whitewater anyone? How about all the highly questionable pardons on their way out of the White House... including Hillary's own brother? The Clintons are the very definition of sleeze in Washington! I would love to see a woman in the White House, just not this woman. If she gets the Democratic nomination, I'm staying home in November. I'm tired of giving my vote to "the lesser evil."

So it is wrong to vote for a Black man because he is Black, yet, it's alright to vote for a woman when you are a woman? Are white men torn between race and gender too, then? Please people, vote for the best candidate NOT race or gender. In fact, just drop the whole argument because it is stupid.

Mills Nills - with all due respect, you're perpetuating the same superficial idealogy that you claim Obama supporters are buying into: That we're only voting for him because he's black. By voting for HRC just because she's a woman you're doing the -Exact same thing!- Further you're voting for the desire of a legacy. HRC is not her husband and should not be voted for just because she's married to him. Bill Clinton was an excellent president but he didn't have the Iraq war going on, he didn't have the housing crisis going on, he didn't have a health care crisis going on either. So to assume that the day HRC steps into office all those magic Clinton family powers are going to take effect is really quite laughable. Times have changed and these times need to be addressed. Mills, if you had backed up your choice with hard facts, or even "I just like her and thats it" then I could understand that. But unfortunately your reasoning feels a little superficial to me. I realize that you don't have to defend your position to anyone, least of all me, but I think we should talk about these types of things and thats why Bella did the posting. Again, this is with all due respect, and I am definitely looking forward to your response should you feel like responding. Peace and love!

Honestly, their stances are quite similar so for me, it really is a toss up. So, I don’t get the “If Hillary wins the nomination, I’m staying home” argument. My argument is simple... I want a candidate I can believe in. If Obama had not been running at all, I likely would have voted for Hillary, but I still would have not been thrilled to do it. It would have been yet another election where my choices were "not good" and "worse." I simply can't stomach giving my vote to the "lesser evil" candidate again. Here's a link to an interesting article I read on DailyKos. This woman was not thrilled about voting for Hillary Clinton, yet she felt that Obama was all "hype" and no substance. Check out what she discovered.

Democrats are making this primary too contentious, and I think it will be disastrous--their candidate will have to stand up against McCain, period, and be able to sway voters that a. might otherwise vote Republican; or b. might otherwise not vote at all. Regardless of experience, platform, etc., Clinton just cannot do it. She wasn't popular with non-Democrats as First Lady, and she won't be popular with them now. Obama, no matter the specifics of his experience or beliefs, inspires hope for change in a lot of people--that is his real power, the movement of hope he has fostered among folks who previously wouldn't/didn't vote or who had given up on this country. The Republican I work with even voted for him. He would never have voted for Hillary.

Bella, I too awakened to Headline News to the announcement. Ugh. I fussed and cussed all the way through my morning routine--ironing, showering, everything. Hillary's arrogance and sense of entitlement annoys me. Her implication that Barack could be her VP choice as if she has the nom in the bag angered me so much this morning. I have always been involved and excited with the political process but this could be one election year where I contemplate the significance of my vote and take it outside the party if Hill is the pick. I've been supporting Barack here in IL since his career began and have watched him move to get things done. His connection to Rezko is negligible and he's since gotten rid of all the contributions Rezko made to the campaign. Our wretched butthole of a governor is name-checked by Rezko but not Obama--he's not a part of it. I've been scratching my head trying to recall what Bill and Hill have done for me as an African-American since they feel that it was profound enough to earn my precious vote. I am baffled by her fake emotional displays and weak attempts to prove she's human/soft/funny/whatever. As a feminist and strong woman, I think if you are tough/steely/boring/manipulative you should own it and not apologize for it. If you're soft/sweet/crazy/whatever, own that too. You are who/what you are and a real woman or man doesn't need to cater to anyone or prove anything. Even in politics. In a perfect world....

I read the comments here and I tell you, I get angry and upset with anyone who tells me that I am supporting Barack simply because he's a Black man...that's a bunch of makes me proud that the candidate that I believe in and chose is Black, yes; but that is not the reason that I support him... I do, however, believe that most people are on the HRC train because they believe they are getting Bill Clinton back...Hilary is not her husband...all of his accomplishments while President, although she claims to be a part of them, are not hers; they are his. Her touting her experience as First Lady while he was Governor and President is a crock...all she did was stand and take a couple of pictures...really, if you compare her true Senate experience with Obama's senator experience, they are equal; better yet, Obama has more experience than she... So don't feed me this baloney about supporting Barack because he's Black...I have more values and morals than that...check your own before you point fingers at others...

You could not have put it any better...UGH. I had the misfortune of turning on the TV this morning and watching HRC & BO on Good Morning America. Ugh. I am a Democrat who USED to wish Bill could run again. But never have been a fan of HRC. When she became a Senator she couldn't fight the fight. Her ideas got watered down. And then I realized that was a large part of Clinton's presidency...backed off from the Health Care issue, Education, Gay issues. The conviction they ran on became nothing. They gave in to the political machine. And the fact that she still stands by her decision to enter a war based on lies? I can't understand that. BO has created and inspired a political movement. Previous apolitical people are voting and making their voice heard in unprecedented numbers. His supporters...won't let him become watered down, fall into the political machine. I find HRC comments about "just speeches" condescending to me. It is discounting my involvement to be inspired and make change happen. Part of me can't believe I am writing this. I was an Edwards supporter challenging my family who has supported BO. Once Edwards dropped out, I chose BO. And with all of this negative campaigning from HRC, my decision has strengthened. I will continue to pray and keep believing that "Yes, WE can. Thanks Bella!

I cannot lie. The results of Tuesday's contests were very disappointing. Especially being an Ohioan, I am very frustrated with my state! After watching Barack's Tuesday night speech and seeing how confident and determined he was, I grew more confident and determined. He's not down and out, so we shouldn't be either! We lost 3 states after an amazing 12 state BLOW OUT, and are STILL way ahead in pledged delegates! We should be happy! If anything, March 4th was a turning page for the race, that's all. Barack will learn from this and become a better candidate. He's expected to increase his delegate lead by winning Wyoming and Mississippi. He's 9 points down in PA right now, but there is time. 7 weeks to be exact. Once the makes the case to the people of PA, the gap will close. I am determined to soldier on and do EVERYTHING I can to make sure Barack secures this nomination. Ride or die. Lastly, I'd like to say something to the people who accuse blacks for voting for Barack just because he's black. Don't be ignorant. This past summer, Hillary had the majority of the black vote. Barack had to earn it and he did--Rightfully so. I am voting for a candidate who is honest, trustworthy, brilliant, has superior judgement, who has the ability to inspire Americans to get involved in their government and who believes that the best days of America still lie ahead...and he happens to be black. To insinuate that blacks are voting for him because he's black is just plain insulting, so FALL BACK with that mess. You can watch Barack's March 4th speech here:
E-Fresh says:
March 6, 2008, 4:21 am
With all the Hillary hype... she actually picked up what? between 4 to 10 delegates on Tuesday? Obama is likely to pick up more than that in the next two states and have even a greater delegate lead than before March 4th, and with a lot less states left. Seems like Hillary is done, even with any Florida & Michigan scenarios.

Ugh!!!!! I have totally lost all respect for Hillary Clinton. Why is it okay for her to whine when things aren't going in her favor? I also hate the fact that she can get away with always throwing it out blatantly that she's a female candidate. So what? People would pass out if Obama kept saying I'm the African American candidate. I think the voting people could really care less (at least the Obama supporters) about sex or race; it's all about the issues and who would be the best person to handle them. Now she's acting like the Chesire Cat because she feels like she can sway the Superdelegates in her way. You think that by winning Ohio and Texas you should be the candidate? Nope, wrong answer. The fight will continue. This also means that Michigan and Florida will have a do over if they are to be counted fairly. Clinton was the only name on the ballot in Michigan, and all had agreed not to campaign in Florida (although she had a fundraiser in the State of Florida Hmmmmm). Let's start playing fair. Stop doctoring pictures, saying stuff about NAFTA and Reznek that you can't back up with facts. How about showing us your tax returns? Clinton will do what whatever it takes to win even it that means losing the General election. I must admit she has added drama into the campaign, but it't the type of drama I'd much rather see on a soap opera. The mudslinging will divide the party and will make Democrats, Republicans and Independents consider voting for McCain or some other candidate. Yes, all parties will need to vote for our candidate (who ever it is) in order for a Democrat to regain control of the Oval Office. I find it sad that only a few people in the know have openly stated that Obama has more legislative experience than Clinton. Besides, experience doesn't always equal wisdom and good old fashioned common sense. The 3 a.m. phone call commercial insults an informed American's intelligence. I want the Commander in Chief to consult with the rest of the staff before making a major decision. Our country would be in more trouble if Bush could just automatically decide to do what he pleased. Now that's a scary thought for real people. Please Superdelegates vote for the will of the people or we're going to be plenty mad.

I'm actually quite glad that Hillary won these states. Yes, I definitely feel that experience plays a huge role in the inner workings of politics, and Hillary has beaten that by a huge margin. I can honestly say that both Hillary and Obama have skeletons in their closets, but I'd much rather have a president who has proven to help many minorities (Hillary) including African Americans, Hispanics, Asians and so forth in the state of New York than someone (Obama) who was know to have played a role in shutting down a factory in Illinois leaving hundreds of minority workers jobless. Who's really for the people? Playing dirty? That's like a rule in politics, so what's all this fuss on "playing dirty"? Didn't one of Obama's representatives call Hillary a "monster" not to long ago? Clearly Obama's campaign is getting personal, and is not adequately describing professional flaws that Hillary has. Just "dribble, dribble, liar, cheater, dribble". All allegations clearly biased. Here's one many of you are going to love: Which presidential candidate is funding the war right now as we speak? Obama Yep you guessed it, Although Hillary along with most of the U.S. Senate voted for occupation in Iraq in order to find the real "monster" that was responsible for 9/11 (Osama bin Laden); the person that's funding the blood bath is the leading Democratic nominee. Many of you are probably saying "Well, he's funding for the soldiers, not the war" Wrong. Obama is currently funding the war with Iraq which adds to the already 1 billion dollar war funding that the Federal Reserve is providing in order to SUSTAIN militia. Non-profit organizations such as the Red Cross is funding medicine, food, amenities and so forth. Obama's bucks are going for weapons. This is coming from someone who's so anti-war? Even Obama said that he was unclear if he would've voted for occupation back in 2001 if he was in the U.S. senate. To conclude, I stated facts about Obama, inefficiency to provide what this country needs; A strong, experienced leader. Expressing my opinion like everyone else who wrote a reply in this blog.
