About vetting Obama:
The Clinton campaign has raised $134,536,488 according to Open Secrets.org

http://www.opensecrets.org/pres08/summary.asp?ID=N00000...

Obama declared his candidacy just over a year ago. If the Clinton Campaign spent 1/2 of a percent of its money doing background checks on Obama, that would amount to roughly $600,000. Presumably every Clinton supporter from Bill on down has been checking with contacts trying to find dirt. The Rezko connection has been examined over and over by different organizations. After all this, the worst anyone could find is that maybe Obama is ambitious and his pastor wasn't politically correct?

2. Thank you.
Obama will make a great candidate for the Dems and a great President. He's being put through the fire right now and he shining. He'll be able to battle McSame with one hand tied behind his back.

3. I have faith that Democratic voters will continue to see through the Clinton smear campaign.
They have lost the election on the issues.

Their only hope now is the filthy, rotten "kitchen sink" smear campaign. :puke:

4. Was just thinking the same thing yesterday
If all they have is a form of the southern strategy, with it's inherent risk of alienating a critical voting block (sort of a 'nuclear' option), I would say Obama is 'vetted'.

5. I would like the MSM to answer why they aren't talking about the following scandals on HRC?
Edited on Sat Mar-15-08 08:24 PM by 1776Forever
Why isn't the media talking about the trial coming up in Oct. '08 for Peter Paul who says he gave the Clinton's $2 million that they didn't report?

http://youtube.com/watch?v=xq8aopATYyw

Why isn't the sale of HRC's campaign mailing list being questioned more to a huge Indian-American supporter named Gupta who had flown Hillary and Bill on private trips and given Bill a 3 million bonus for consulting and Gupta's investors filed a court case because of this?

And why isn't Clinton releasing her earmarks and tax records?

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2008/03/15/clinton-wont-r ...

.......

Because of this and a lot more I cannot support HRC.

6. And like what happened to Powell, when they can't find anything on the man
they go after the wife, which has already been happening in this case. They even went after the grandmother and I suppose his dead mother and father and his children will be next since they have no morals.

They signed a pact with the devil promising to cause disruption and time's almost up. You can tell by the desperate and mindless thrashing around looking for anything.
