“They are still campaigning across the country and on the news every day, so how can that be a bad thing? It's excellent exposure to the citizens of our nation. If anything, it detracts from the facetime that McCain is getting, and people with goldfish memory forget about him.”

Bad actor on Mar 30, 2008 at 21:17:47

“I think Hillary must stay in the race as a backup in case something nasty comes out of the Rezko trial which connects Barach to the slum-lord business--anything is possible. If the selection of the candidate goes to the convention, please draft Al Gore and put an end to what we all know is this lesser of two evils election. Gore/Edwards would trample McCain and lead us out of the Bush nightmare with a landslide so great that a majority in both houses would be overwhelming assured. Then, we can reclaim our country. A lot of people do not understand that Gore is a graduate of Harvard, studied law and theology at Vanderbilt and served in Vietnam, was a Representative and Senator in Congress and Vice-President of the USA for eight years. Don't you think it is time we gave deep thought to what we want in the White House?”

“Nora, half of the Democratic voters disagree with you. It would be ill-advised for Senator Clinton to bow out of the race with a popular vote gap of 1%. As you said, it isn't all about you, and she would be doing her supporters an injustice if she were to pull the plug when not everyone has had their say. Looking at historical primary seasons, it is not uncommon for them to last until June. If anything, this contest will only make the Democratic nominee more prepared for the Republican onslaught. Why do you think it's acceptable that so many American voters would be stripped of their voting right? It's not enough to say that it would make you sleep easier at night. Elections involve the gestalt of the country's citizens, not just a privileged few.”

“1%???? get your figures straight............app. .700000 votes out of 13-14 millions IS NOT 1%”

AuntSally on Mar 30, 2008 at 20:35:25

“Actually, I'm interested in this notion that nearly half of Democratic voters are for Hillary.

The problem is, all these votes happened over the last three months. I suspect a substantial fraction of those that voted for her in Jan. and Feb. would not do so today. (Nora seems to be one of them, and the discussion threads are littered with similar sentiments). Further, the national polls (e.g. Gallup's national tracking poll), show Obama leading her among Dems by a wide margin, 52-42.”

HeadScratcher on Mar 30, 2008 at 20:31:04

“I just love this view of the 'popular vote gap of 1%' as being something that is significant as an excuse to continue Hillary's campaign.

"Only 1%' at this point translates to nearly 800,000 votes in Obama's favor. In a democracy, a one-vote margin is sufficient to win and also sufficient to lose. The loser can bemoan the one-vote loss and say that the 'vote gap' was miniscule, but they lost regardless. The percentage of the "vote gap' is meaningless. In a democracy, the actual vote is what counts to determine who wins. Polls use percentages to determine trends and attitudes, but they don't determine the winner. And while saying that the voter gap is only 1% seems like a surmountable goal, it's pure spin place on what appears to be an insurmountable reality.”

BrettnCalgary on Mar 30, 2008 at 20:10:14

“Cite a source for that 1% comment, please. I read somewhere that Obama was leading by approximately 700000 in the popular vote. Simple math suggests that for that to be 1% of a total, that total would have to be 70,000,000. I'd be interested in your source.”

“You are really assuming an incredible capacity to suspend disbelief if you think those clips were not indicative of what Jeremiah Wright believes. Those sermons were written, taking quite a bit of forethought. This is hardly the same as telling an off-color joke and then blushing at its inappropriate nature.

How about Jeremiah Wrights' praise of Louis Farrakhan. To Wright, he "epitomizes greatness". He showered him with an award and highlighted his work in the Trinity newsletter. All these things take forethought and a certain belief system. The Black Value System, to be exact.”

“After 20 years as a parishioner at Wright's church, Obama states after Wright's retirement, that he would have left the church if Wright stayed on. Who believes this? He didn't denounce anything that Wright preached until he was called on the carpet about it. Those inflammatory sermons were on youtube for a year prior. How can he say, one day, that he was not aware of any controversial statements by Wright, and then, in a speech the next day, he confesses awareness of the inflammatory sermons? Obama is dishonest and pandering for votes. What else is he not truthful about? How is he to provide CHANGE WE CAN BELIEVE IN? Too many people are seeing through the smokescreen. He will not be able to win the general election.”

“Kudos for speaking your mind. Both Dean and Pelosi have been amazingly ineffectual. Not that I agreed with him, but Hastert was a force to be reckoned with, Nancy is well...a nancy.

People who back Obama have glossed over the fact that 28% of Clinton supporters will vote for McCain in a Obama - McCain matchup while 19% of Obama supporters will vote for McCain in a Clinton - McCain matchup. Isn't it funny how it's all about numbers when the statistics support their candidate, but we hear crickets when it goes the other way.”

“I would have to say the majority of those Obama supporters that wouldn't vote for Hillary probably wouldn't vote for her because of her recent tactics. The majority of the those that would vote for a Bush 44 instead of Obama are those that wouldn't have voted for him in the first place.”

Aleka on Mar 29, 2008 at 01:27:34

“But it is not about popular vote. It is about pledged delegates, which she can't win.

This "popular vote" thing Hillary has suckered you into is really sneaky because Obama won most of the caucuses and most of those dont report "popular vote". So what you are really advocating is to change the goal from pledged delegates, which are representative - and which ALL PARTIES AGREED TO AHEAD OF TIME - to popular vote, which NO ONE agreed to and which just so happens to leave out most of the states Hillary lost.”

“Tenure has NOTHING to do with the title. If you are a new hire as "tenure track" (pre-tenure) you are still "assistant professor." Someone will recent tenure is "associate professor" and someone with maybe a decade or more at college will be "full professor."”

Geovan on Mar 29, 2008 at 06:21:10

“SocialConscience?
Here's a clip from a November 9th story in the DailyCollegian:
"Almost half of the professors in the U.S. work in part-time positions with lower wages, less benefits, and only partial job security. As of 2007, only 32 percent of university faculty members are tenured or on the tenure-track, as compared to the 97 percent forty years ago."

The term professor is used regardless of tenure in this academic newspaper. As a matter of fact it points to extreme lack of tenure with professors, no doubt as a result of Reaganomics and "the government is bad" syndrome. What is your standard definition and where is your source?”

Thatcher on Mar 29, 2008 at 03:43:34

“Please ... the university says "professor" is correct. end of story. Who, but them, best knows what to call him in that position???”

JonStewart4President on Mar 29, 2008 at 02:15:22

“Not all Professors have tenure. There is no standard definition when it comes to US universities and colleges. But speaking of standard definitions, here is the definition of professor from Merriam-Webster.com: 1: one that professes, avows, or declares
2 a: a faculty member of the highest academic rank at an institution of higher education b: a teacher at a university, college, or sometimes secondary school c: one that teaches or professes special knowledge of an art, sport, or occupation requiring skill.

So if we look at number 2 a-c, Obama was a professor...by a very standard definition indeed.”

Benton on Mar 29, 2008 at 02:14:37

“Actually most professors do not have tenure. What is the the standard definition? I do not recall anybody who taught in Law School who was not referred to as a Professor.”

“Did they just poll Trinity church members? The reflection of Jeremiah Wright as a mentor and spiritual guide for Senator Obama has cast a shadow on him, and it absolutely has swayed voters. It certainly hasn't helped him advance any in Pennsylvania. These daily polls are hard to take seriously. Hopefully, campaigns are gullible enough to afford them too much weight.”

NtFourSale on Mar 27, 2008 at 00:34:12

“Agreed. I made a large donation to Obama and did a lot of volunteering for him. Wright's comments bothered me, as did the "typical white" comment. I'll still vote for him but with far less enthusiasm. Far less transcendent or global than I once thought.

I had hoped he would make racism a footnote rather than the lead story.”

Monkeytime on Mar 27, 2008 at 00:00:39

“You didn't like him before the pastor stuff. You like him less now.

Can't you see that your own bias invalidates your analysis? How can you tell that voters have been swayed? You can't judge the whole country by your own feelings.

For arguments sake, I'll agree that NBC is Obama friendly. But surely even you must recognize that that is not the case with the WSJ.

Obama will be the nominee. Try to imagine a scenario in which he is not.”

A Few Unanswered Questions About Bill Richardson's Obama Endorsement

“No pass was given to the rest of the superdelegates. feelfree merely pointed out that John Kerry, Patrick Deval, and Ted Kennedy are voting contrary to how their constituents voted. This is also contrary to what many Obama supporters are saying, that superdelegates should echo the votes of their constituents. Superdelegates are allowed to be free agents. Which definitely raises the question of why we have them. There should be equitable voting, no one with a stronger voice than any other individual. I wonder what American citizen packs the most punch? A Texan superdelegate who voted in the primary and caucus?

The Judas thing is a bit much. Better to stick to the facts than use religious imagery.”

factbased on Mar 23, 2008 at 01:11:09

“I agree with most of what you said - on SDs, equitable voting, facts over religious imagery...

But I really don't think feelfree picked 3 SDs at random to rant against. He or she picked 3 Obama-backing SDs and was mum about the more numerous Hillary-backing SDs. Maybe you meant a pass wasn't given in the media or overall in the comments or something, but feelfree did look the other way, at least in that comment.”

“Excellent point. The "pissing and moaning" rant got me off track, my apologies. It's likely that any candidate that would stand to seat delegates by counting the electorates' votes would behave just as marybanilow described. Any candidate worth their salt. In the case of Barack, he doesn't have a benefit, so of course, he opposes. It's elementary politicking, but it's the American people that get left out of the process, and it just isn't right. It's time we eliminated this opportunity to jockey for primary positions, and when I say that, I am looking forward to the future since there is nothing that can be done with this election cycle.”

“What has Obama at least FIBBED about:

- Obama's stance regarding NAFTA when conversing with Canadian officials (wink, wink)
- Exelon- nuclear energy company, nuclear waste generator, Obama donor (supposedly not beholden to corporations, lobbyists)
- Obama's "present" votes allow him to be a clean slate. How can you criticize someone who doesn't have a voting record on the issues? There is a reason "present" votes are color-coded yellow. One needs courage to be POTUS; that means making tough decisions.
- Obama should not accept a Subcommittee position when he has no intention of fulfilling any of the duties. Holding a meeting is the bare minimum. He knew he would be stumping. Relinquish the position to someone who can affect change instead of padding your resume with empty "accomplishments".
- Following the Black Value System, yet claiming that we are all in this together. Trinity is not working for the advancement of all humankind. It's a specific subset of the human race. He elected to be part of that congregation for 20 years. How does a man move past racial differences when that is the topic du jour every Sunday?
- Convincing a slumlord under indictment, Tony Rezko, to buy an adjacent property to ensure his own mansion purchase. They were friends for 20 years as well. That case just began, and I'll bet there is more to the story.
- There's a lot more...Please consider the red flags before it is too late. McCain's campaign will use all this and more as ammunition, and they won't give polite notice before the attack.”
