I hate to burst your bubble but it doesn't look good for Hillary.
She'll need a miracle now.

From the wjztv news room:
Democrat Barack Obama swept Tuesday's "Potomac Primary", defeating Hillary Clinton in Virginia, Maryland and the District of Columbia, CBS News projects based on exit polls and incoming vote tallies.

According to the psychic twins Hillary will win. Only time will tell. I just hope not. Those buggy eyes of hers scare me.

Hillary is the same ole political machine we have now that's doing absolutely nothing for the working class. We need a total change in Washington. The Democrat majority was voted in to end the war, bring back jobs to this country, end the overwhelming lobbying, get rid of the illegal aliens, etc., and we are no closer to any of that than when we started. It looks like if we want real change we need to start fresh and new. If Obama wins, he has my vote, and I will vote for him in the Ohio primary election.

Mike, right now the vibe I'm getting is that Obama represents new, both Hillary and McCain represent old and are a couple of retreads.
Rick GComment by Rick G - February 13, 2008, 9:11 am
Obama said in one of the debates that one of the first things he'd do as President would be to review all laws passed since 9/11 regarding our nation's security and how they are affecting our civil liberties. He has also made it quite clear that he was against the illegal invasion and occupation of Iraq from the get-go, as was I.

Between the two, my vote would go to Obama.

Between anyone vs. John McCain, my vote would go to anyone. McCain has stated that he doesn't care if we're in Iraq for 100 years. 70% of the American public disagree with him. Also he is a short-tempered, arrogant man who thinks he has all the answers. It's his way or the highway.

Sound familiar?

Well, all I can say is with the world like it is right now, I would prefer someone who has the experience and strength to make the tough choices that will have to be made.

Has EVERYONE forgotten what happened so soon? I would rather fight terror over seas than at home. Stop and think just how easy it would be to plant bombs along interstate highways. I'm surprised that nobody thinks or cares about that.

If Musharraf loses control of his military and terrorists get control of their nukes, what do you think they are going to do? Does anyone REALLY want Hillary or Obama in charge in that kind of situation? THAT does scare me.
Rick GComment by Rick G - February 13, 2008, 10:27 am
rcbbuckeye, why do you think we are in danger of of being attacked by terrorists? Could it be that our foreign policy has anything to do with it? We've made more enemies in the last 7 years than we have in the last 70 years. That's what you should be afraid of...the root cause of the problem.

If we had a non-intervention, non-aggression foreign policy in place during the last four decades, 9/11 wouldn't have happened and we wouldn't be ensconced in a "War on Terror" or any other war for that matter. Americans wouldn't be cowering under their beds in fear. I don't put all the blame on our current dictator...this has been going on since the end of World War II and we are paying dearly for it.

The IslamoFascists are coming to a realization, they are losing badly, and they are fighting a losing battle. The only way for us to finish this war once and for all, is the way most wars are won, the other side surrenders or is killed. I've been to the middle east and it is a misconception that everybody hates the U.S., the statistics are probably the same around the world as they are here, you can't make all of the people happy all of the time, there are Americans that hate America, just like there are other peoples that hate America, but most of the world likes America.

Just ask yourself this question when you vote: Who do the IslamoFascists want in the White House? HMMMMM....Remember 2006? Who did they want then in the Congressional elections? Good thing Congress was ineffective.
rcbbuckeyeComment by rcbbuckeye - February 13, 2008, 11:17 am
I think we will aways be in danger of being attacked again, because of several issues. Yes, our foreign policy is one. Another is they do not like our way of life and what we stand for. Granted, the US is not perfect, and we make mistakes. However, these are not people you can sit down and reason with. If they feel they have been insulted their answer is to kill the offender. A murder plot was foiled the other day over a cartoon! These are NOT reasonable, rational people.

I do not believe that we need or should adjust our foreign policy to appease any other country. Every country is going to form their own policy to their own benefit.

Finally, I'm not nor ever have been in the habit of cowering under my bed in fear. I do not like war either, and would very much prefer not to be in one. But if we must protect ourselves, it is much better to take the fight to the enemy, rather than let the enemy bring it here. If Obama or Hillary, or McCain, or anyone else for that matter becomes president, the danger of terrorists attacking the US again will not magically disappear. I think that unfortunately this is a fight that we will always have to face.

Hillary is the best candidate

Waging a war based on ideology is an unwinnable war.
Ms. PatComment by Ms. Pat - February 13, 2008, 12:54 pm
We need someone who can get us out of this mess we find ourselves in. My wallet is at stake here. I think Hillary could do it but I sloa think that Republican are behind the Obama campaign. If McCain wins guys it's MOS!
four4meComment by four4me - February 13, 2008, 1:33 pm
The Clinton's had two terms in office she didn't fix the health care bill issue then and she cant do it now. She would need congressional support to pass such a bill and the support isn't there. While i think America is posturing for a woman president. I think our country would be better served if a woman was vice president first so the American people can see first hand how she handles the task.

We are living in some volatile times at this point in time and some really hard decisions will have to be made in the coming years. If the prophesy that we are living in the end time holds true do you really want a woman running this country in the event of all out war.
ToddComment by Todd - February 13, 2008, 1:44 pm
@rcbbuckeye: You are 100% correct, but you have to remember who you're talking to. People who don't care what kind of attack they're making, as long as it hurts George Bush. Truth be damned. And they're the ones who say that George Bush lied.

They do not seem to be on friendly terms with the concepts of logic and higher-level thought, and prefer to dwell forever in the mindset of a college freshman.

Once I figured that out, my political comments here have become fewer and more direct, because I began to feel that I was wasting an enormous amount of time explaining concepts in detail to people who refuse to open their minds to alternative viewpoints, and want to attack me in the same manner that they attack anyone whose views differ from their own. That has become the definition of liberal (and sadly libertarian, as evidenced by Ron Paul supporters): socialism masked as an all-inclusive philosophy. That is, "We respect your opinion, as long as it agrees with our own non-traditional agenda."

Don't feel that you are alone in your views on terrorism in the world, because you are not. Liberals are creating an environment in which people who believe in the concepts of good and evil are afraid to speak out. Don't be convinced by a perpetual drumbeat of illogic, negativity, and spiked polls. And don't allow the media to convince you of who will win the presidency. According to the media and liberals, George Bush lost twice. According to reality, he won twice, the second time by a wide margin.

I'm glad you wrote that Todd. I don't want to accept the polls as they are now. I don't want Obama to win.   Mc Cain or Hillary or ANYONE, so long as they are not singing the tune of taking my weapons from me. Taking them away from law abiding citizens to be rampaged by the criminals is in itself a criminal act.
ToddComment by Todd - February 13, 2008, 2:16 pm
@spy153: Amen to that.

How quickly people forget Bill Clinton signed into law legislation which allowed corporations to overstate assets thereby precipitating massive bankruptcies of Global Crossing, Enron, etc. which the Bush Administration inherited along with a terrorist attack Clinton's inaction also precipitated.

Thanks Todd. I don't usually get too involved in these "discussions". But I just have a really hard time understanding what happened the last few years after 9-11. I will never forget watching those towers fall. And I vividly remember wondering what was going to happen next, because nobody knew the extent of the attacks that day. I live just a few miles from DFW airport, and it was so strange to not see any planes flying over my house that week. My wife and I visited New York City for our 30th anniversery in 2005, and when we went to Ground Zero, it made me cry to see that. I think that videos of the towers falling should be shown on TV every week to make people remember.
