    What about Feinstein's endorsement of Hillary Clinton? Why hasn't that ever gotten a headline here.

    It's amazing to see the press wanting McCain and Obama to win so badly. Every time Obama sneezes it gets a headline, while Clinton gets nary line written about her - even though she just won Florida last night by a huge majority (really a BIG deal, because it shows she can win that crucial state in November).

    Go Hillary! The glass ceiling is waiting for your breakthrough.

    Screw Hillary she is a fake no commiting hypocrite that has nothing better to do than to change her views repeatedly. (Most noteble the Iraq war) She uses her out of date husband to try and win her votes (Which she did greatly in Florida) and her views keep on changing. If Hillary's moron self becomes President I am going to move to Canada because she will bring nothing but bad upon this country with her socialist agenda and lack political views. GO OBAMA. She would bring even more debt to this country than Bush already has. Again I say GO OBAMA.

    The same media outlets who shilled for GWB and the Iraq War are shilling for Obama.

    I smell a rat, and am voting for Hillary.

    This whole election is sounding more and more incredible. If someone had written a book five years ago about this election, it would have been dismissed as too far fetched. What do we have, an aging has been v a couple of religious squeaky cleans and a heroic nyc mayor on one side and on the other, an african american (with more african and muslim background than american and protestant) v a woman from a powerful political dynasty and an also ran with a wife with serious health concerns. The fact that there is no incumbent with this lot is also an unusual situation on top of that.

    Not to belittle any of the candidates individually, but it does sound like the blurb on the back of a novel.

    Resident, by qualification through elimination, you've left yourself as the only viable candidate, but it's too late to raise money. Maybe next time?
