51. Absolutely, totally AGREED!
Let me get this straight - you're a Democrat, strong Obama supporter, and you would rather he WALK AWAY from a sure, if messy, nomination???

Pray tell, WHY? Because Hillary Clinton is making a fuss, running nasty ads and insinuating things about Obama's background?

Grow a spine! Get real! This is a taste of what McCain and Co. will throw at the Big "O" EVERY DAY until Election Day!

Now maybe you're not used to seeing this sort of dirty campaigning from a Democrat - yes it is repulsive to me as well. But Dear God in Heaven you don't run away from it, you face it like Obama is doing. With class, and by not descending to their (her) level. He has done an admirable job so far.

Please don't tell me that he couldn't counterattack, or "close the deal", that's the other side playing cards they can't deal again! The effectiveness of any future "3 am" ads will be miniscule, the NAFTA thing (which was nothing to begin with), was a news cycle. Obama came from 20 points back in two weeks and nearly won Texas, and cut Clinton's lead in half in Ohio. These two states will be very much in play in November, just because McCain has nothing except Stay the Course. Even two years of experience beats that!

Sorry to burst your bubble, but the Repugs are not going to go gently into the night. It's going to be one tough campaign.

Obama has shown that he rises above the fray. Give him another eight months to let the country get to know him, and we will win.
