“I agree wholeheartedly. Anyone but drama-filled HRC (and yes, Bubba). I understand this is Obama's choice, but there are many other qualified candidates out there. However, it looks like his cabinet is starting to look like nothing more than former Clintonistas. I hope and pray that is NOT the case. This is NOT the change I voted for... Let's see what happens.”

“Call me confused. If this is not the change you voted for, then...what the heck did you vote for?”
“It's best to just personally stop by and visit your nearest campaign office. If you have time this weekend, the campaign could definitely use more volunteers. This coming weekend (Sat., November 1st through Tues., November 4th) is the last opportunity to volunteer before the election. If you can spare an hour or more over the next five days, this could help Senator, Barack Obama and Senator, Joe Biden win the general election.
“Agreed, please cover all bases when voting (read the ballot thoroughly) and ask questions, if you have any. I live in North Carolina and there have been reports of problems (e.g., straight party vote, etc.) at the polls.
So, to all my folks in North Carolina, please be aware that a straight-party vote counter-intuitively does not include a vote for president. Voters must make a separate mark under the Presidential Contest box.
Remember what happened with the butterfly ballot in Florida? When just a couple of hundred votes (out of 5.8 million cast) separated George W. Bush and Al Gore?
The ballot design flaw disproportionately impacts three groups who are likely to be heavily represented in the election this year: new voters, the poor, and the elderly.
Early voting started a week ago, already there have been reports that people don't understand the ballot instructions.
If two percent or more of North Carolina voters unknowingly "skip" the presidential contest, it may very well have an impact on the outcome.
VotersUnite.org recommends that people in North Carolina avoid straight-party voting.”
“I see why more and more Americans are calling themselves Independents... As a lifelong Republican, I have lost all respect for my party. That said, I'm not a fan of the Democratic party, however, with so much at stake this year, I will be voting for Barack Obama.”
“Seth, please tell me this is a joke. Whose behind these focus groups? The RNC. If these independents are real, America should all be concerned. Wait, Bush 43 won twice. It's all about "likeability" with many voters. They ignore the issues and the facts. They want someone that reminds them of their feisty and crazy (bless his heart) Uncle in the white house. I need (America needs) a President that has the intellect; the judgment; the knowledge; the temperament, etc. to lead this great country into the 21st century. I will NOT be voting for two Neo-con puppets who can care less about everyday Americans struggling to make ends meet.”
“Everytime she opened her mouth it was nothing but gibberish, nonsense, b.s., scripted talking points (e.g., maverick, energy, etc.) and no substance at all. And what's up with the wink wink? Obama/Biden 08'”
“It was painful to watch. To the SP supporters: This is not an election that should be based on likeability or party loyalty. It's about the issues and challenges we face here and abroad. Wake up people!!!”
“Thanks for this very informative article. Americans need to know that Senator McCain is NO friend to veterans or veterans issues. As an "informed" veteran I will be voting (early) for Obama; a TRUE friend to veterans and veterans issues.”
