obambi is done for. I was a white voter who loved him, but he has the nerve to accuse Hillary of playing the race card when he used ebonic words like "Hoodwinkied" and Okie Doke, I said, 'HELL NO"

come to PA where we are waiting for you Separtist boy.

Jack,

Hahahaha. "Hoodwinked" and "the Okie Dokie?" Those are incredibly common terms and have nothing to do with race! My white grandmother uses them all the time! And how has Hillary's campaign NOT used the race card?!? Her surrogates have brought it up, and even her own HUSBAND brought it up in S. Carolina. Sure, they can frame it in a way that doesn't sound outright racist, but people aren't stupid. You brought it up for a reason to try and pit whites against blacks.

hahaha. you're funny. By all means, vote for Hillary. I think he'll live without you.

and PS, try and spell correctly next time. It may help your argument.

The wheels are coming off the Obama Bandwagon and Justin and the rest will soon see. This race thing is Blowing up in Obama's face. Fox news just reported today that there would not be a mail in vote in Florida and that the Delegates will likely be counted at the Convention.

John,

"Fox news just reported"...

Haha... that made my day. The idea that Fox news reports anything. So thanks for the humor there.

But sometimes I wonder what it's going to take for these out of touch Clinton people to accept reality. In this poll posting showing Obama still ahead nationally and still ahead vs McCain, two days after Obama won Mississippi by 24 points over Clinton despite 10 points of Clinton's lowly 37% coming directly from Republicans who are actually supporting McCain, erasing the five or so delegates Clinton gained from her win in Iowa last week, and after the last two weeks of a lot of pro-Clinton reporting, we still have the same old in-denial folks making up crazy one-in-a-million chance plans for how Hillary is still some how going to steal the nomination from Obama and from the voters.

What's it going to take for you all to accept that Obama won and Clinton lost?

Maybe you'll accept it at the convention this summer when Obama is making his acceptance speech?

Nah, not likely. Perhaps next January when Obama is being inaugurated as President of the United States of America?

Peace
Henry

As an Obama supporter I would like to ask a couple of questions to the Clinton supporters. I'm not trying to start a war of words, I would just like to hear it from another view point. What did you think of Sen. Clinton's response on 60 Minutes when asked if she thought Obama was Muslim, she replied something to the effect that she wasn't aware that he is, at least nothing that she has heard. Also the race baiting in South Carolina. As a Obama supporter I will be glad to tell you how I feel about things you find wrong with his campaign.
Again I'm not try to start an argument between Obama supporters and Clinton supporters, we've had too much of that already. I just want to hear you side of things.

@Scoop,

I watched this interview and didn't see a real problem with how HRC handled that question.

Everybody knows (long before the interview) that Obama is currently a Christian (or we wouldn't have the whole mess with his Reverend).

So when I heard this question, it took me a few seconds to understand it and why they asked it: did they mean that he is still a muslim? Or that he was a muslim in the past? (which to a degree he was, because if you go to a madrase you have to recite certain prayers). Both would make more sense than the "did you think he is a muslim" which is too ambiguous. I am guessing she went with option 1.

Also,and this might explain the response, it is not clear to me that from a technical point of view he is no longer a muslim. For example, if you are born to a jewish mother, you are considered jewish unless you actually get baptised; starting to believe in jesus is not enough to not be considered jewish by the faith. So, what does it take to stop being considered a muslim by muslim tradition? I admit, I have no idea, and I doubt Hillary did either. From the question, it sounds as if the interviewer thinks that he still technically is.

People are reading too much into that whole thing. It is not as if anybody was not aware of the Hussein factor at that point so that Hillary's opinion would matter on it or that she would be revealing anything to anyone.

I'll be waiting for those wheels to come off, John. Looks like it's the other way around. Even if the Florida delegates are seated as is, he's ahead in states, delegates, and popular vote, so I'm not really sure how that's the end-all in your mind. Many objective individuals have done the math and found that it's next to impossible for her to catch him in delegates OR the popular vote (INCLUDING all the current unkown circumstances like FL and MI), so I guess Hillary keeps filling up her car with gas when it gets low only to find the road she's on leads to a dead end.

Jerry:

I would like to know if Obama is black. His campaign keeps saying that race is a not an issuse. I'd like to hear Obama tell us if he is black or what. Maybe he is not. Muslims are not black. So is he black or is he Muslin. It time to step forward and be one are the other. Then we can refer to the right race. Then it will not be an issue.

Don't forget Jerry, he could also be white! *GASP*

Rick:

I think the point is that he has transcended race, so it really doesn't make a difference. At least that's what he is hoping and many people are making it difficult by bringing things up without merit.

Steve:

Jerry, "Muslim" is not a race. A Muslim is an adherent of the religion of Islam. Muslims can be any race. And some blacks are Muslim, as well as other races.

Obama is not Muslim.

And Obama is half black. He is probably considered "black" because he looks more "black" than "white".

Justin,

You wont have to wait long, its already started. Thanks to Rezko & Rev Wright !!

Scoop,
I dont think its Hillary's place to say wether or not he's Muslim - besides that, the Muslim issue is blending in with the fact that Rev Wright ( Who has been his Mentor, inspiration, adopted uncle & all that according to BO ) is a FULL SUPPORTER Of Louis Farrakahn (MULSIM/RACIST) and has proven to be an absolute Racist in his own persona. Obama has been influenced admittedly by Wright for more than 20 years and has only till now Rejected, Denounced him & all that other meaningless BS which are nothing more than words & EVERYBODY Knows, except for the few of you. IF IT WALKS LIKE A DUCK & QUACKS LIKE A DUCK ITS USALLY A DUCK !!

Rick:

John,

I don't think Hillary should want to bring up Rezko as much as she has. She should be careful what topics she bring up, in this case real estate controversy. Remember Whitewater? Here's how I see the race right now. Hillary and Obama are from the same high school and are both running in a track event. She's falling behind and is reaching forward and pulling on Obama so that he falls with her, leaving the rival school, McCain HS, a better chance to win.

@ Rick,

What about Whitewater ? she was never charged for any crimes and there has been no proof of anything - Old news Rick, Whitewater was named after Watergate (Do you remember that) by the Republicans to try to derail the Clintons. It didnt work then and it doesnt work now. Shes taken her shots - lets see if he can take his ?
