WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Democrat Barack Obama's big national lead over Hillary Clinton has all but evaporated in the U.S. presidential race, and both Democrats trail Republican John McCain, according a Reuters/Zogby poll released on Wednesday.

I knew this was coming and I see it getting much worse for Obama. People will not tolerate his lying. His heart is been filled with racism from this bogot pastor of his and I believe deep down he hates all whites, including dragging his own white grandmother into the mud which we all witnessed.

If Hillary gets the crown, I'll definately be voting for McCain.

The public is a fickle beast, I wouldn't be surprised if this is a bump in the polls, but who knows. I, for one, refuse to make predictions on what the public will do (remember when Guiliani was the front-runner in the GOP).

However, I really do feel that this whole affair ought to be a tempest in a teapot, and if it is not, we are a poorer nation for it.

At the present time, it looks shaky for Obama. My fear is the potential for violence in the Black community should Clinton get the nomination. African-Americans have a history of burning down their own cribs and communities.

No doubt, we will get the President we deserve (as always).

There is absolutely no need for you to openly share thoughts of this nature. Ignorant

While I hope that this is not the case (burning down of communities, raping, and pillaging), it has happened before with the "Can't we all get along" Rodney King riots. Hurricane Katrina didn't show a pretty side either at the Superdome or whatever that was called down in New Orleans, where there were incidents of rapes, possibly murder. I didn't see the same thing happening in San Diego during the fires of 2007. I don't mean to be policitically incorrect, but sometimes one has to be in order to speak the truth. While I do NOT think that something horrible like this will happen if Obama does NOT win the Democratic nomination, I have heard other people speak of this too. I don't know if everyone's "ignorant" or whether or not we've seen horrible acts of violence and destruction and none of us want to see it again. We all hope that we've moved farther as a society. Sometimes, I'm not so sure, based on even what Michelle Obama has said, what Queen Oprah says sometimes on her show (frankly, I'm appalled at some of the racist things she says continuously and seems to never be called on it because she's Queen Oprah).

So tell me, what part of Nirvana do you reside in? I'm a Viet-Nam vet and I spent 6 days in Washington DC with the 6th Cavalry in 1969 with live ammunition when 55 people were killed in the worse rioting to that date in the US. I was all of 22 years old and I spent 18 months in Viet-Nam where half my squad was killed. My sympathies to your sorry ass.
