  - Nice link to a scathing "Obama quiz" from this site, too  Obama_for_our_future   Mar-08-08 11:04 AM   #18 
  - So Mark Brewer - a supporter of Hillary Clinton - told the media that the Obama campaign  Debi   Mar-08-08 11:05 AM   #20 
  - They Shouldn't Get Anything, But The Clinton Camp Did Reject Caucuses  DrFunkenstein   Mar-08-08 11:14 AM   #27

  - This sounds awfully familiar.  Laelth   Mar-08-08 01:38 PM   #76 
  - I'll bet it is a lie  Obama_for_our_future   Mar-08-08 01:55 PM   #82
