The funny thing about all this talk about Obama (here and everywhere) is that it HELPS him out. As everyone keeps talking about Obama, they are not talking about others. His problem was name recognition and as each caucus/primary has come, all this attention has helped him out tremendously.

And all these accusations are just so petty they must know they are being ridiculous, just trying to push people's buttons.

Superdelegates get campaign cash - 2008 Presidential Campaign Blog - Political Intelligence - Boston.com


What do the Democrats think about buying the superdelegates' support?


So, one office seeker shouldn't be allowed to contribute to another's campaign?

I see Obama as just another left wing democrat. IMO he has no more chance of uniting the nation than a right wing republican does.But then neither does clinton.

Fortunately, you're free to vote for a candidate other than a Democrat.

No. They just don't want her husband to be in office for a third term !
