Thad Beier:

Well, given the fact that the African American vote is almost precisely half of the pool, then you can calculate that Clinton leads Obama among non-African Americans 37% to 31%, at least at this point. It's surprising to see Edwards doing so poorly in his home turf -- but then again, Gore lost Tennessee in 2000, and if he hadn't this long national nightmare would not have begun.

God never intended for a female to run the country over men! God created man and gave him an helpmate taken from a man. a woman is the weaker vessel. no woman should be telling men what to do or not to do, It out of God's order, I will vote republican before I vote in a woman and Im a democrat.

Ron Paul in 2008
Balanced budget, no more unfair free trade agreements, close the borders, end the war, no more foriegn aid.
Give the man a break.
All media should be arrested for the treatment this man has received.Stupid questions, others interupting him.All the other candidates complain of unfair ads yet this man is being persecuted for telling it like it is.
Vote for the zombies if you must but at least look at what this man says.
Ron Paul in 2008

Where in the Bible does it say that men are superior to women? No where! Where in the constitution does it say that a certain sex is requisite to become president? no where! I can't believe the sexist society we live in. The president of the United States should be chosen by merit not by race or gender. We must elect someone with experience and leadership!! Someone that will actually listen to the people once in office. We must elect a wise candidate who will make favorable decisions on wars, foreign trade, the economy and at the same time keep our country's reputation high. I'm an independent, I don't have any affiliation to any party but I vote for those who will bring positive change to our country. The only two candidates that have determination and leadership, are HILLARY CLINTON AND JOHN McCAIN!!!!

Hillary is more capable to run this country than any of the other democratic candidates that are running. Atleast she is not afraid to take a stand on tough issues. She has never been afraid to stand her ground and speak her mind. Give em Hell Hillary!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Obama will win in South Carolina but that will prove to be a hollow victory. The American people will not be bamboosled by someone who claims to be an agent of change and is really one of the members of the old boys team!!!!!!!!!!!!
