Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-N.Y.) asserted Sunday night that Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.), through his recent description of sentiments in small-town America, reinforced a stereotype of “out-of-touch” Democrats that doomed the party’s past two presidential nominees. “We had two very good men, and men of faith, run for president in 2000 and 2004. But large segments of the electorate concluded that they did not really understand or relate to or frankly respect their ways of life,” Clinton said at Messiah College, referring to former vice president Al Gore and Sen. John F. Kerry (Mass.). She repeated her view that Obama had been “elitist . . . and, frankly, patronizing.” (Continue Reading…)

Obama goes on offensive against Clinton
After a weekend of playing defense about his “bitter” comments, Sen. Barack Obama went on offense Monday against his Democratic rival and the presumptive Republican nominee. Obama mocked Sen. Hillary Clinton for throwing back a shot of whiskey in front of TV crews over the weekend and said she must think she’s “doing me a favor” by attacking him and toughening him up for a fall race against Republican Sen. John McCain. (Continue Reading…)

DNC sues to block McCain spending
The Democratic Party on Monday filed a lawsuit against the Federal Elections Commission seeking to force the group to investigate whether Sen. John McCain has violated federal spending limits for his primary campaign. (Continue Reading…)

    i HAVE CHECKED BACK A FEW YEARS…I COULD NOT FIND ANY WANNABE PRESIDENT HAVE THE ASSOCIATIONS THAT OBAMA HAS..HIS ASSOCIATION WITH WRIGHT, FARRAKHAN, REZCO AND WILLIAM AYERS IS JUST VERY CONCERNING….VOTING FOR OBAMA MAY BE A TRAGEDY WAITING TO HAPPEN..
    LOOK INTO THIS AND VOTE REPONSIBLY…

  • Look. If you were to look at the people behind Clinton, McCain, and BUSH then you will most likely find KKK affiliations. So, do not come here bashing Obama. As for myself, Obama is the best candidate for the job and it looks like a lot of Americans White and Black and other think so as well. Also, as a Black American I love Farrakhan and regardless of what you or anyone else think or feel about him I know what Farrakhan preaches and is trying to do for Blacks all over the world.

    Why don’t you “look in to” the backgrounds and affiliations of Bush and McCain and you then “VOTE RESPONSIBLY in 2008”.

    Obama supporter, oh really, you really think that behind Clinton, Bush and McCain we’ll kind KKK affiliations? Oh really? As a Black American you love Farrakhan. At this point in American history, Farrakhan is pulling racial equality backwards. White Americans were thinking racism was dead. As a white American, I can honestly tell you, if someone in a room full of whites made a slightly racist comment, everyone would chastise them and think they were a jerk. Farrakhan coming back into the forefront because of Obama’s association with Wright has renewed a feeling of disquiet. There is no way Obama will win the National election, coupling Wright/Farrakhan with Tony Rezco & co. Obama’s baggage is extensive. On top of it, his mocking comments all along are turning off women as he acts more and more as the jerk exboyfriend. He came out in the beginning like a knight in shining armor, but folks we are not voting for American Idol here. Character matters, big time. Vote intelligently.

    Yes I do.

    “White Americans think racism is dead” come on! You and I both know that isn’t true. I get so frustrated when I think about how people have pushed under the rug what happened to blacks during slavery and in the 60’s and 70’s in the Civil Rights Movement – that was not that long ago! Most of the people who come to this site parents were the ones getting hosed down and beaten. Racism is not dead and we have seen that daily in the media and our everyday life.

    On Farrakhan, most don’t agree with his past statements, but we do agree how he always encourages us to love ourselves and our history and culture and if you don’t get that that ‘s fine.

    Character does matter and I love Mr. Obama’s and not Bush, McCain or Clinton. Why are you coming to a site targeted to black women trying to persuade us to “vote responsibly”? We are all intelligent enough look at the stats, issues and background before we make a decision and we do not need someone to come over here and tell us that is not “American Idol”.

    Obama will win the national election and I really feel like we are in the 70’s again when the FBI was all over Dr. Martin Luther King trying to pull him down and people like you infiltrating Black sites to deliver your “vote responsible Black people” message – it’s so sad the lengths people will go to keep power.
