Right. So you know how it is w/ politicians. Looking for the next job. So I figure, kissing Hillary's hand puts him in the position to cash in on some political currency if Hillary wins - a nice Cabinet position . . . an ambassadorship . . . or who knows - maybe he thinks she needs a Southerner on her ticket for VP.

I for one am glad to see a politician from my state NOT jumping on the Obama bandwagon. I have to turn the radio down every few minutes b/c they are playing his ads so freaking much. I CANNOT stand to hear Obama talk....if he gets elected I won't be watching a SOTU until 2012!

so you are willing to support a candidate that has comitted election fraud felonies and obstruction of justice? the truth will come out later this year when the Peter Paul vs Clinton trial starts in November 08 AFTER the election. If she is elected, it will be TOO late to change your vote to Obama. Id rather vote for a candidate that has a social connection with an unorthodox preacher than vote for a candidate that has lied under oath and committed fraud. Everytime a Bush gets in office we go to war in Iraq and now it looks like everytime a Clinton gets in office they get impeached.

I DON'T TRUST OBAMA AS FAR AS I COULD THROW HIM! At least with Hillary, I know what I'm getting. I've been nothing but honest about that. I'm just embarrassed that NC has so many colleges which is skewing the numbers in his favors here. That is the only reason he's winning by such a large margin in this state. All the young, impressionable college kids wanting to make a statement and be part of a movement without a clue as to what they are actually supporting. So to answer your question, yes, I'd rather support Hillary than Obama. Nothing new there.

And you'd rather vote for a man with known relationships with racists, terrorists, and a wife that has major issues with the country? Oh yeah, there is a lot more to be proud of supporting there. But he can deliver a great speech if it's written for him.....he is no better a candidate.

Rev Wright is not racist and just because Obama knows the man and went to his church doesnt mean he shares Rev Wright's views. Its amazing that you fell for all that campaign rhetoric and spin. All that spin is the reason people are getting suckered into supporting Hillary.
