I appriciated the comment about reducing sen. Clinton's performance, responces and others reactions to her to being about sexism. Well summed up. Thanks.

Its ironic how the Bush administration's sentiment, that most on the left so dispise 'you're either with us or against us' and the concept of being anti-american if you dare to critique, is suddenly being applied to women who don't support Hilary...

I'm an Obama supporter, prior to that I was for Edwards. I could not contemplate voting for Hillary Clinton because her record in the senate has not been one that has been in service to the people.

Frankly, she'd be little different than Bush. I know, I know, that would set some people howling.. however, if you've seen and experienced what I have, and others in my community, and so many I've read and been told about, likening to Bush doesn't seem to be quite a stretch.

Clinton is exploiting people's legitimate concerns, and lying to their faces. I regret ever voting for Bill Clinton, because I feel he laid the tracks that have enabled so much of what this Bush has been able to get away with.

In all honesty, Bill and Hillary, and too many democratic leaders these days represent a democratic party that is frighteningly close to what was once the party of slavery.

For me, and so many people I know, Hillary Clinton is not a valid choice because she is corrupt and more interested in power than in public service.

Re: "In all honesty, Bill and Hillary, and too many democratic leaders these days represent a democratic party that is frighteningly close to what was once the party of slavery."

Are you kidding me?! The Democratic Party? The party who has given us the first viabale black candidate for President? (A candidate who has one of the thinnest resumes of any candidate in history.)

The moral superiority trip many Obama supporters are on is totally unwarranted.

I'm coming onto this pretty late, but I'm glad you mentioned Clinton's disdainful remarks against young people in this country.
