She just doesn't know how to lose gracefully. You want this person to represent and lead the country. Good Lord.

No problem! To be honest, the only reason I even watch the MSM's anymore is to see just how outrageous they can get. The one segment I still like is Dan Abrams where he calls the "Cheapshots, blunders and misstatements" of both Obama and Clinton.

He seems to be the most fair and balanced this week. It changes on a daily basis though. Somebody on his program said the other day that the biggest problem with journalists today is that they all think they are being paid to be analysts.

Remember the good old days when news was presented to us and WE got to interpret it ourselves?

The official campaign outlet says one thing, and a journalist citing an inside source says another.

I guess I wouldn't consider it clarified yet, but rather undecided.

A sober decision would be nice.
I was off a little bit: Obama: $694k Clinton $228K.

A. Sexism is not cool. The sexism in the media and on this board is getting a little bit out of control. How would you feel if people started saying things like "That N word" should just drop out of the race?

B. She hasn't lost, not even close. In fact, that are virtually tied. Have you forgotten that THREE of the largest Democratic primaries have yet to be held?

I'm just glad that they're actually covering politics instead of teenybopper culture for once.

Then again, every time I've gone to refill on coffee or heat up a meal today, Headline News has shown the latest on Lindsay Lohan.

Wow, as a woman, I can't begin to tell you how offended I am by your post. Yes, I want this person to represent and lead the country and when I see her called this name by you, I realize just how far the country still needs to go in treating women with respect.
