She said she would fight for universal health care, which Obama is not pledging to deliver...invest in environmental technologies to create "Green Collar" jobs to help the ailing economy...$3,500 tax credit for families with children in college..

Personally being one of the people in that crowd, it was great to see Hillary Clinton speak to the people of AZ straight from the white men digging at opposition telling her to go iron a shirt....just straight talk about COLD HARD DESPERATE problems we need to deal with in this country. She was smart, she is capable, she is EXPERIENCED, and she is ready and loyal to a country she's served most of her adult life. Despite what you may have against a strong, aggressive white WOMAN when you get into that voting booth....please know that I, for one, KNOW she is the only one capable of getting us out of some of the very serious MESSES we have been put into in the last 8 years. If you don't think she has the finese & experience to cope with everything thrown at her - you just don't know Hillary Clinton.

I think she is a very strong woman and I'll be just as happy if she or Obama win - I thought their debate was excellent - they both stood out if y'all saw it. And now that most Americans realize that Obama is not a Muslem, and we are listening to the issues think how fortunate we are to have two very strong Democratic candidates to choose from. I met Hilliary in Austin, TX three years ago and she signed her book and told I had on a beautiful antique watch - that woman knows quality! And I am impressed w/her - anyone who chooses not to vote for her based on any of that old propaganda is sick...there is no basis to any of it. She is a winner as is Republican needs to be in the White House after this next election until they clean up their party and their act. Noted.

I sure hope you are right about her being different when it comes to the big issues that affect this country and the world.

I hope if everyone is out for change and is deeply concerned with the issues that I can post a couple things for people to read---and for my post to be taken for what it is---just a post of some things I think people should see and then they can decide for themselves what they think about it.

I am in no way a person who just posts to attack or undermine, and I would hope that's obvious to anyone.

The first of two things I would like to mention are that (according to the Huffington Post) "On June 5, Rupert Murdoch, chairman of the News Corporation, gave her presidential bid $2,300. A few weeks later, his son, James R. Murdoch, chief executive of British Sky Broadcasting in London, gave $3,400. Altogether, NewsCorp/Fox executives gave at least $40,000 to the Clinton campaign."

That's Fox News people donating to her.

That seems like something noteworthy when you take into account Fox News and all the people on Fox such as Bill O'Rielly, etc serve Bush and his administration and policies so well there is hardly any way to tell the White House policy and Fox broadcasts apart.

Then there is a great article pointing out Hillary's militarism goes back before what is made out to be her just going along with Bush on the invasion of Afghanistan and Iraq. We are told all the time that backing those things was not normal for her.

Please take a look at this article:

Like I said, I am just out to find the truth, and if someone had posted something about Kucinich or Gravel or my parents or anyone, as long as it was not just some flaming or propaganda attack then I would welcome it, and I would look into it and if it was true I would take it into the equation and if it was false I would show how it was false.

But I can't just sit idly by and live my life worrying about offending someone when the stakes are this high.

How you all react is up to you.

I was going with Edwards at first and then he just keeps falling behind, the more I listen to Hillary I love her. She is not just smart, she is quick to think ahead, you can not knock her off track. She has the best of the children in her heart, health care for all, and to help put all children in collage. She is not evil, as most Preachers call her, yes that is right they call her evil the maker of Satan. This is coming out of Churches like the New Life Church which Bush gets his advise from each week. They had a special on A&E on this Church 3 weeks ago, a summer camp and had children there from the ages of 7 to 13. Not teaching them the love of God but the fear of God, and then they had a cardboard life size Bush and they all came up and laid hands on him and prayed over it and called him the mighty savior of our country. Then the church in Denver Co. their Preacher got on T.V. and said, that this was the best business to be in, for he was rich.. Just by preaching the word of God. Or lets say his word, not God's word... How scary is this to think that they or brain washing children into the right wing party? And most of these people were poor and lived in poverty... I just can not understand their thinking, I want health care for me, my grand children, my children and all the children in America. I worked for mine, and I think it should be done.. So go Hilliary and help us that need you....

I was wooed by Obama's speeches, but, I knew he was NO FRESH and NEW CHANGE, especially, after Obama stalled so long on the Co-Sponsoring of the "American Horse Slaughter Prevention Act" or S. 311, until finally, in late 2007. Around the same time he changed his long time position on the use of coal or "liquid-coal". Hmmmm, his timing is impecable. I might be dropping my ballot for this Democrat candidate, in November, and that makes me ill, after looking at his performance, lack of experience, affiliations with corporate interests (just like the rest of them), along with his investments. His record of "Present" in Congress and actions of sponsoring important legislation, isn't pretty.
Edwards was my strong second choice, but, he has withdrawn. Ron Paul is playing a "Nader factor", and I don't know why he is still in the race..., he can't win, but, he can sure mess things up.

Congress is ran by two parties, and I choose the lesser of two evils, because, that is who gets behind the legislation, the strongest for Wildlife, Child Abuse, Poverty, Global Warming, and so much more. I will have to vote for the Democratic Nominee, in November.

I forgot to say, Hillary has been a very strong advocate for Animals, in legislation.
