All of this racism crap is making me want to vote for Clinton tomorrow.
I am not sure I want my proxy vote possibly going to Obama at this point. The media is blowing this way out of proportion. The Clinton's have always been champions of the African Americans in this country. It looks like I will be reconsidering my uncommitted vote for tomorrow.

1. seems like an illegitimate reaction to me...

If you blame the media then why does it reflect on the candidates? It seems to me that if the media blew it out of proportion then it is the media who is to blame not Obama.

I confess, I've mostly ignored this story as it seemed to me to be pre-election day infighting. I just ignore all of that because it tends to be misleading.

Being honest here: It seems to me that perhaps you secretly wanted to vote Clinton all along and this is just your way of admitting it to yourself. I'm not being flipant... just honest.

2. No HONESTLY I really wanted to vote for Edwards in the primary.
But since I can not decide exactly where my vote goes by giving it by proxy, I am not going to vote uncommitted. I did not plan on ever voting for Clinton since I had chosen Edwards as the best candidate. I really liked Obama too but I feel like everyone is not looking clearly at him and vetting him. They have acted like they were at a rock concert with googly eyes rather than really seeing what he stood for. Even I could give a truly inspiring speech. That part of him has not impressed me in the slightest. I just see no substance to him. In any case, this whole Michigan primary and the race crap being thrown around is very frustrating.

3. OMG! You're a Closet Clinton supporter?? Who cares, vote for who you want.
And I too think the media is doing its best to wring the last drop of reason out of all of us. Illogical should be the hip new word for the day as its surely what most people are putting out there these days.

4. NOTHING makes me want to vote for Clinton. NOTHING. I am voting UNCOMMITTED
Just say no to the status quo: Hillary and her triangulating wind sock politics.
Give me Edwards or Obama any day.

6. Um ... Bill Clinton was not a "champion" of all African Americans.
The rate of black men imprisoned under Clinton's "war on drugs" policies skyrocketed. He basically sold their freedom for his votes.
