2. I'm relieved.
I can't specifically say why, but I thought no good would come of it.

4. This is hardly breaking by any stretch of the imagination.
There are already numerous threads about it. Just look and you will see.

6. The media pigs Gloria Borger and Campbell Brown are going nuts. That Brown is a total idiot.
They don't know "why" she did it!. Oh my God! "What have you heard? I've been working the phones...." What a pair of shrieking pigs.

9. No, but don't let that stop people here
from spouting negative crap about which they know nothing.

"On Wednesday she called the governor, David Paterson, who is making the selection of who should succeed Senator Hillary Clinton. Her concerns about Senator Edward M. Kennedy's deteriorating health (he was hospitalized after a seizure during the inaugural lunch on Tuesday ) prompted her decision to withdraw, this person said. Coping with the health issues of her uncle, with whom she enjoys an extraordinarily close bond, was her most important priority; a situation not conducive to starting a high profile public job."

10. It seems that at times DU=FR... We should give people the benefit of the doubt when dealing
about personal choices. Not everyone is calculating and evil like Dick Cheney and Rumsfeld.

11. I'm not sorry to see this. I never commented about it, but
she just didn't seem like a fired-up political candidate. I'm sure she's a nice enough person and all, but she lacks the spark.
