Hillary Clinton is the best choice for this country. When she is elected she will prove it to all those naysayers!

jillness i couldnt agree with you more. your probably right, fox news and republicans alike are just chomping at the bit to get their hands on hillary in the general election. they would much rather run against her than obama, he appeals to just about everyone. he has proven he can win a practically all white state and win over voters in the northern more conservative area of nevada. thats what i think this country needs is a president who can bring EVERYONE together from the left to the far right and i really think obama can do it. im team obama all the way to november!!

I think that the Clinton's style of divide and conquer campaigning is very old fashioned. They really pulled out all the stops this week, and it only backfired. 70% of South Carolina voters thought Hilary was unfair to Obama (granted, 50% thought both were unfair). As the Wall Street Journal said, this week reminded everyone why they didn't like the Clintons years ago. Me personally, I think Hilary could do the job but I think Barack would be so much better in so many ways. But I think that Hilary's campaign tactics will be her undoing. And if she makes it to the general election, the Republicans are going to let lose with 8 years of pent up rage. I think Fox News has been storing a bunker of mud to fling at her that might do a lot of damage. I think Obama's poise this week has shown that he can take it. He really came out of this looking above the fray, and I think the Republicans would have a hard time throwing him off balance.

Piper: I doubt that very much. Hilary put the nail in her own coffin. She's isolated her own sure thing with the black vote, and women with backbones (aka feminists) dispise her. she's outta here! Plus,people respect him more because he takes the high-road. THe Clinton have been carrying on like big babies.

Wake up, people. Seriously. The Clintons are going to destroy Obama. This is one of his last moments to shine. Obama, if you're listening, please grow a backbone and hit Hills where it hurts.

The white vote was pretty much a 3 way tie, though. I think that is completely relevant.

The Clinton's are brilliant. They are pretty much saying that they are going to lose SC (which they have from what I'm hearing) because Obama is black. Some pundits are saying that they are doing this to get their white base "fired up" (I swear I heard this on Hannity and Colmes last night!). The Clintons are playing the race card and no one is really calling them out on it.

I agree piper. I am SO TIRED of the tag lines behind Hilary and Obama's names in the press..."vying to be the first woman/African-American President". They are so much more than their broad demographic. Interestingly, Bill Clinton was just asked what it said about Obama that he needed 2 people to gang up on him (bias question,of course). But what Bill replied was really odd. He said that Jesse Jackson had won twice in that state before. Which in no way ties into the question. Maybe I am jumping the gun, but it sounds like he referred to Jesse simply because he was a black man. Jesse didn't run against a married couple team, right?

I live in South Carolina too and I'm looking online at articles about the election and I'm seeing "Massive voter turnout reported in racially charged SC Democratic primary". What the heck does "racially charged" mean? And why wasn't it a "racially charged" primary in Iowa or New Hampshire? Are the Democrats trying to make race an issue in their own party's election? This is pretty insulting to the voters in SC.
