That link doesn't work. Besides, no poll in any right-wing rag is going to stop us from putting the strongest candidate on the ballot. Obama can't get the EV's to win the general and it would be an abdication of conscience for the superdelegates to put a proven loser in to give the WH to McSame. Obama can dream all he wants but his bid is essentially over. This phony uproar in the press is all just an attempt to save him. With Fl. and Mi. sure to be seated and a clear map showing Obama can't win in the general, it would simply be political suicide to nominate him. Besides, why would the party give it's nod to the guy with the least Democratic support? Only 67% now to Hillary's 78%. Further, of the participants so far, 25.4 million (incl. Mi. uncommitted) will vote for Obama while 28.4 million will vote for Hillary. That's a 3 million vote advantage just in the primary. 5 million primary voters so far would rather vote for McSame over Obama. The numbers are too big to ignore. I've said this before, a vote for Obama is a vote for McSame. Idealism meets reality, big time.
And let's vote for Mike Huckabee to stay in the race as well. It's his 'right' to do so! Jeremy, what purpose does this serve?!
Right-wing rag. The Freeman? ROFLMAO! I can't stop. LSM. Ok, oh, too funny. There lies the problem with you libs. If a paper doesn't believe in EVERY thing you do, they immediately become a 'right-wing rag'.You got yourselves a real political hot potato there, don't you? On one hand, Clinton 'appears' to be stronger with the EV, but you are going to risk disenfranchising your beloved minority and young voters by choosing Clinton. Maybe even risk a 'Walk on Denver'Furthermore, when you allow MI and FL to break the rules, you are going to weaken the strength of the DNC.I can't wait for Clinton to take the DNC to court. That is the ONLY way MI and FL will be allowed to count.BTW, I guess it's the right wing media making up the stories of EX Clinton SDs pulling their support for Clinton, and throwing their votes to Obama. Bill Richardson and George McGovern to name 2 of these 'made up' stories.
Thank you, no. Please call her Jeremy, and ask her to bow out gracefully.Sing her that Kenny Rogers song,"The Gambler". Thank her and ask her to get behind our man...smitty
7:47AMWith all due respect,1960 -JFK a longshortLBJ the odds on favorite.Nixon the heir apparent!and those were good times economically.The American public, for the most part, does not live out of a Statistical Textbook but out of a Bank Checkbook!Let's wait and see...smittyRemember N.E.

She is done..she is now just postering for VP. Even if Fla and Mich are seated, she still loses. She cannot catch up and the superdelegates are now heading to Obama like lemmings. All he has to do is keep his mouth shut, they will force her to bow out. I am sure the freeman poll will sway her one way or the other though.
The DNC makes the rules and changes them on the go. There are no rules to break. If Obama gets the nod, he has less chance than McGovern. Clinton carried both Kentucky and West Virginia twice! With Hillary 40 points ahead in WV and 36 ahead in Ky I think it's pretty clear Obama won't carry them. If your lackey Barack makes it into the General, I hope you're all happy with McSame. He'll make me a few million more and kill the capital gains tax so I can spend it while you poor saps will be stuck with the bill. Obama won't even support legislation to cut you some slack on your mortgages and credit card debts. Get used to 30% until you go on welfare. I hear the dole in Kingston is fun. Old hotels and shopping cart races.
George McGovern is not a superdelegate, moron. Do your research. He's the reason we have superdelegates so we can dump losers like him and Obama. He won the delegates and put Nixon in office.
You realize, 6:44, you can give the IRS MORE money than they determine you owe. You don't HAVE to make millions, and leave 'us' poor slobs for the dole. If McSame continues the tax levels they are today, and not RAISE them, and you make off on that. As a true liberal, you should set up a Kingston Fund to help out the needy, or those idiots who made themselves 'house poor' by buying more than they could chew. What was the old axium? Mortgage 3x your salary, no more. Is it my fault that rule isn't taught in school?
The Dems will nominate Obama and thus we will have President McCain.Hillary will run and win in 2012.
At the levels that Obama thinks are fair lending practices, that rule would be reduced to never mortgage more than one-half of your yearly salary. Under the Bush administration, banks have undertaken such predatory practices that many parts of the country, ten years' salary was considered normal. I've given plenty by spending in areas that need it. A "Kingston Fund" for the stupid only perpetuates poverty. I'm for solving poverty, not farming it. The answer to your plight is to move to greener pastures. You cannot lay claim to territory unless you can keep up with the expense. Like it or not, the manifest destiny of our nation is to expand accross it, not stagnate in one place. Massive increases in healthcare and life expectancy is forcing this to increase. Two generations in one place is now slow. My children will be forced to move or have to work at dead end jobs. My family left Kingston and moved on back in WWII. Plan for the next generation elsewhere and let the City of Kingston find new suckers to bring up the rear.
Hillary will be 64 in 2012. We'll get Chelsea instead!
Clinton is no different than Bush. She does not know when to give up the fight/war!
