Pam, it is a shame that you are so against Obama. It reinforces the sense that Hillary and her supporters were focused on themselves and her "entitlement" to the office vs. the greater good of the Democratic Party and the country. I expect you are a better person than that and hope, after you get over your disappointment, you will get behind the party's nominee.

Was it Will Rogers who lamented he didn't belong to an organized political party because he was a Democrat?

the clot thickens!!!


Rezko and Odinga are important persons in their own right, but it is their connection to Barack Obama that has the press interested.
First, Kenyan PM Raila Odinga is not going to meet with Obama when he visits the US.
"Mr Odinga has said he is a cousin of Mr Obama's, although the senator's representatives deny that the two men are related.
The Kenyan-American presidential candidate may wish to avoid meeting with the PM due to concerns that such contact would be used to stoke rumours intended to wound Senator Obama politically. ... Right-wing extremists have been circulating baseless claims on the Internet that Senator Obama is closely allied with Prime Minister Odinga, who is described by the Obama-haters as both an Islamist and a socialist.".

Over in Chicago, Tony Rezko says prosecutors pressured him to talk about Barack Obama.
The prosecutors deny it. "In a letter to a judge publicized last week, political fund-raiser Tony Rezko said 'overzealous' prosecutors pressured him to tell them "the wrong things" about presidential hopeful Barack Obama."

the Chicago mobsters are crawling out of the garbage

You also told us Hillary would be the nominee, so why should we believe you now?
