• Mc Cain is probably standing back, laughing at this whole three-ring circus the DNC has unwittingly become a part of...  And really, could you blame him?  By allowing this merry little war betwixt Hill-Bill and Obama to continue, the DNC is quickly starting to divide.  The battle lines are being drawn.  When is it going to end?  If the DNC doesn't pull together soon, the GOP are going to have the DNC right where they want them.  I know many professed Democrats who are now saying they are going to vote for Mc Cain simply because they are tired of this petty, childish foolishness between the two Democratic nominees.  And honestly, I'm not so sure that I might not join them...

  • I had a tough time voting this year. Neither of the Democratic candidates really stood out to me.
    I was at the Victoria Democratic Party meeting when reps from both parties gave their pitches and I was not greatly impressed. Obama's guy kept talking about "change" and this "isn't a campaign, this is a movement." Hillary's gal talked mostly about what she did prior to her husband being elected governor.
    I hate mud slinging, I want to hear real issues that the candidates will focus on.
    But in the end, I really don't care who's president as long as it's not a Republican.

  • I Understand what you mean Trisha, but that’s the politics of old that Obama is preaching against.Obama has brought in a lot of new voters, many independent and former Republicans , who were tired of the politics of old.
    Mainline Democrats are sensitive to what happened to the Clintons during their first years in office; Bill Clinton still enjoys a high 85% approval within the party. If Obama uses this line of attack, he will alienate the Democratic base, much to the joy of the Republican Party. A split Democratic Party, cannot defeat the Republican Party in November.
    Barack Obama must continue to use a quick response, and stay above the fray approach, that propelled him to this lead he now has. He must also provide more detail on how his proposals would generate more jobs and revive our economy. Whether or not you like Hillary Clinton, you can not dismiss her knowledge of the issues. Since it was her camp that went back to the Ken Starr investigation, Barack could use that to his advantage by saying “They want to go back to the politics of old” instead of compromise and they want to rehash the vast right wing conspiracy. I think he would be foolish for the front runner to change game strategy in the middle of the stream, just because Hillary landed a few punches.
