When I refer to people who support Obama, I call them "Obama supporters"

I expect the same level of respect back. I'm nobody's "Bot"

11. maddiejoan she is about 150 Delegates behind

this means SHE IS LOSING TO HIM.

Every time I check the Super Delegates more have moved over to Obama.

This IS NOT ABOUT THE POPULAR VOTE as much as you may like it to be

This is about delegates.

SHE IS LOSING TO HIM say it with me eventually the pain will go.....

It's not a wide enough margin of pledged delegates
to say that. Sorry --but it isn't.

It's mathematically impossible for either to not require Super Delegates to gain the nomination.

That means the SDs will be deciding on all manner of criteria --not just the one that Obama, Clinton ( or you and I ) thinks is best.

Obama has not made a better case for the nomination than Hillary has.

They are for all intents and purposes in a dead heat for the nomination. They will both have to make their cases.

25. Is that who ignored is, LOL... Still endlessly stuck in denial stage
Obama is winning the popular vote as well - but you can't expect HillFans to consider facts.

16. Yes, in fact she is losing to him. There's no way for her to catch up with any reasonable certainty
If she's going to hold the election process hostage, then clearly we need to come to some compromise, and if she will only take President and must suspend the party's nomination procedures to do it, then fine, but we need to be realistic about the situation.

18. "It will be me."
So says Hillary when asked by Couric whether she'll be disappointed if she's not the nominee.

She will say or do anything to win. "Winning. Winning. Winning. Winning. That's my measurement of success. Winning."

Not power hungry. Power CRAZY.

26. She's got a lot of nerve

and Bill's "unstoppable" comments. Ugh. They just know he would never ask her to be
V.P. I also think she's trying to warm up McCain to the idea of bringing her to his
ticket. She wants to be president one way or the other, and she'll stoop to any
level.

34. Her repeated praise of McCain

creeps me out.

How Dem's can support a candidate that does this is beyond me.

It's sickening to watch her sell her soul like that.

28. It's called chutzpah and the definition is..
"1892, from Yiddish khutspe "impudence, gall" from Heb. hutspah. The classic definition is that given by Leo Rosten: "that quality enshrined in a man who, having killed his mother and father, throws himself on the mercy of the court because he is an orphan."

And the m$$m is playing for continued ratings gloming on to hilary as if she were nothing more than a fucking meal ticket which it turns out she is.
