Voting for change is all well and good but it needs to begin in Congress.
Doesn't matter all that much who's President if we keep re-electing the same people time and again.
Stop and think about how mad you are because your representatives don't seem to be representing you.
A new President won't change that.

Get rid of the dinosaurs in Congress. As long as these people feel SAFE in their jobs, they will NOT work for you or me.

Oh for crying OUT LOUD!
The Statesmen and Adults, have almost ALL dropped out of the race for lack of support!
Richardson, has EXPERIENCE running a large state. He negotiated SUCCESSFULLY WITH N KOREA TO GET THEM TO BACK OFF THEIR NUKES THREAT,

Dodd was the one who said his first act as Pres. would be to "restore the constitution!"

Kucinich, doesn't take money from ANYBODY who would try to influence him. His ideas most line up with what Americans want.
HE actually is the "Abe Lincoln" model; smart as a whip, articulate,honest,and yet the "dim" Americans can only see as far as how his beautiful young wife, employees her tongue piercing.
AND he is AS TALL AS HILLARY!

Mike Gravel; has saved this country twice.
( READING THE PENTAGON PAPERS aloud to Congress with tears streamning down his face, at risk for going to jail over it. And philabustering the draft bill, until it failed to pass.)
Admittedly he is given to fits of anger; but since I too react to a lot of sleepwalking people, the same way, that, doesn't bother me.

The Obama phenom has been created for our consumption by the media and the powers that be.
We're being suckered AGAIN!

You can all blather on as you wish but if the truth be known; Until the American people start putting the country AHEAD of their personal agendas NOTHING will change. I don't give one hoot in hell WHO the candidates are. This is not some damn football game. This is our country. Get your heads out of your asses and do something about it.

This feels more like a Class President Election rather than one for The Leader of the Free World. While we're at it, why not nominate Anderson or Charlie, better yet-- how about Diane, she's the prettiest?

Speak on it, Mr. Baitz! Fantastic post! Yes, what Obama brings to the election is something Hillary (for all her admirable qualities) cannot provide, or replicate: a real and palpable sense of hope for a new direction.

I'm voting for the Democrat who wins the nomination. Period.
These amateur HuffPo pundits who harpoon Hillary on a daily basis will presemably vote for the GOP nominee if Hillary is our candidate.
Am I right? If I'm wrong, please Google the phrase, "keep your powder dry."

The title to this article as presently on Huffington Post claims panic in the Clinton camp. The article talks about that panic and relays it to a life or death experience. But not one word of one source named or unnamed indicating that such panic actually exists.

I see no evidence of that in this article. Is this IMAGINARY panic (the imagination being that of Jon)? The entire piece seems to hinge on this unsubstantiated panic.

I would have found that piece more credible had it quoted a named or unnamed source leaking some first hand knowledge of ALLEGED panic. To me it came across as idle speculation rather than reality.

While I love your beautiful writing and your sweet soul, I beg to differ with you here.

Obama is riding a wave--for the moment. And he may ride that wave to the White House, but I have my doubts. I hope he does not get the nomination, but if he does, I will support him. My hope is for Hillary.

She's ready to take office now, and while that couldn't be more important, it is equally important that she is prepared to battle the Republicans. She's been there.

I strongly disagree with you that she is on the attack. Yes, I am sure she is panicked, but make no mistake--she is already regrouping. Don't count her out.

What she is doing is what every politician should be doing at this stage. She is fighting for the nomination. And that is what we want--a fighter. If she becomes President, her battles will be huge, requiring strategy, tenacity, determination, and relentless fight.

She is not playing dirty. I am not only dismayed, but also disgusted, at how everyone is trying to portray her campaign as one of dirty attacks, mud-slinging, and unfair tactics.

Welcome to politics. While we all want change, this aspect of politics will never change--nor should it.

Swift-boating is not acceptable. Nothing repulses me more how the Republicans play dirty--as they will do again, whether against Hillary or Obama--make no doubt.

But she has not. She is legitimately pointing out differences between herself and Obama. She has been vetted--as should he.

Everyone is acting like a bunch of wussies. Like they expect candidates to roll over and play nice. This is the most important job in the world--this is not for the weak of heart.

They should all be fighting like hell--fighting the good fight.

She is not doing a damn thing wrong. I wish her Godspeed.



As you have said, you love women, so why not rethink this? She's a great woman whom we all would be very lucky to have as President.

all of the so called experts and pundits just cannot see the forest for the trees. People are sick and tired of the status quo. Hilary screeches about 'change' with her 35 years of experience. And she can't see the dichotomy of a statement like that? And it's not just her to be sure, look at the popularity polls of the president. Look at the approval polls for a Democratic controlled Congress. People are sick of the same old same old. Clinton, Bush, McCain, et al. All of these people have been there and did nothing in the time they had. Well, guess what, Obama will be the next president because the youth of this country and to some extent the forty-somethings as well will turn out for Obama if for no other reason than to send the message to the political class that we are sick of it!

Didn't Obama (and also Edwards) Panicked sometime ago when Hillary was ahead and started attacking her? I remember they we ganging up against her in the debates. I like Obama and share his idealism but I don't think he is the Messiah of Democrats (and all of us Liberals) to get us through the 2008 presidential election. Wait until Republicans and those conservative media start working on him. Hillay took all the crap from the so called Conservatives for 15+ years for all you progressives and I believe she deserve the credit and support from all of us now more than ever.

"stil she hasn't done anything worse than any other politicians."

There's a great campaign slogan!

I say run with THAT. It's so inspirational.. so rallying...
so possesed of the zeitgeist

... and EXACTLY why I hope she tanks.

Perhaps Obama is today's Gene McCarthy? RFK? McGovern? Gary Hart?? Sorry, no, but if he was, it would be good.

Hillary Clinton needs a Hubert H. Humphrey moment.

She needs to go before the nation and declare that she was wrong about Iraq.

But unlike Humphrey, she needs to do it now, not wait until it is too late.

Hillary Clinton is not only paying for her own policies, positions and baggage, she has become the target for progressive rage, independent disillusionment and republican frustration towards the DLC and RNC for their years of complicity and blind support of Bush policies.
