What happens if they won't let Michigan or Florida send their Delegates, I hear Obama won't cooperate with that (not let them count as is & won't let a revote happen either) so that he can help block those votes from counting and win by default, is that possible? I hope not.

I think if Obama continues to support disenfranchising the voters of Florida and Michigan the democrats will pay for it come November if Obama wins the nomination. I see those voters becoming McCain democrats.

Yeah, Obama successfully blocked a revote in Michigan, and we are disgusted in his lies of "unifying the party". He thinks nothing of our votes, only of his campaign! GO HILLARY!

HIlliary is probably going to get the nomination and if she does it will disenfranchise the entire BLACK vote. With Hilliary way back in the polls against John McCain if she loses the BLACK vote there will be no Democrat in the White House for another 8 years.

I disagree Kevin. Gallup polls don't show Hillary "way" back in the polls, heh. And Senator Obama is losing his luster in both the African-American commuity and the Caucasian community. Then the Rezko trials starting, and Barack blocking FLORIDA, too.., when ALL the candidates were on the ballot.., well..., He is showing his real colors to all..

too much speculation...

I disagree as well for the same reasons as Dar D stated above. AS far as disenfranchising black voters....this election never should have been about race. It only became a race issue because Obama has time and again played the race card whenever it benefited him to do so....just like it benefits him not to have revotes done in Florida and Michigan.

Iwas supporting John Edwards. Then he pulled out, the reason being lack of media coverage,therefore lack of fund raising. The race has been about Gender and race from the start.I am disappointed in my party, and leaders. Our Presdiental election should not be like some cooked up reality TV show. It should be about the issues facing the America, like health care, poverty,people losing their homes and jobs. None of Candidate has shown me in voting record as Senators that they should elected. However after Obama had to bring race into the picture. I am going with Hillary. It only hurt his campaign . There are area in Indiana where the Klan is still strong. If Mc Cain would get in Canada looks better all time.

Vote for a change. Hillary is totally old-establishment and nothing will change. I believe that both Michigan and Florida decided to break the rules and that is that. Why should there be a re-vote? It is perfectly clear that they made the wrong decision. As for race, Obama is half black and he is not hiding it. Seems to me that the media can't handle an honest candidate who does not spin like our Hillary does. She needs to drop out and give a new generation a chance and not mess around with her "eperience" as the wife of a former president. Her eperience allowed her to vote for the war. His experience forced him to vote against the war. Let's get a change here...a real one! She is extremely wealthy just like Bush. You think they care about you and me??? I don't think so!

Obama has admitted in his own book that he had second thoughts about not supporting the war. So for him to say he was against it is hypocritical when he's second guessed his own decision. The only reason he stands firm behind his decision now is because it benefits him to do so....just like not counting Florida and Michigan and just like playing the race card.

As far as Hillary's think Obama is a poor man? You may want to look a little further -

Obama has been far from honest, his most recent lie was saying he was never sitting in the pew when Reverend Wright spewed his despicable sermons. He later admitted yes, he was there.

Im for CHANGE also! Go Hillary! I want a change from 8 years of lies and destruction by our current administration. Hillary has a boatload of experience in the world community, she has definitive plans and ideas, many of which were so good they were then claimed by her opponents as of their own invention(!). Watch C-span instead of the spins on national news, most of all of which have completely lost any even dreamed-of objectivity. C-span shows you real-time interviews and speeches, from there you can make up your own mind. Her answers to trying to deal with the US economy, which is in a state of disaster now, blew my mind. The lady knows her stuff!
I completely agree that this primary election should not be about race vs. gender, but these elements must come to the surface because we as a nation have so far to go with towards any kind of resolution, understanding or peace with these particular issues. Having been a civil-rights proponent for my entire life I hate that the national discussion be taken at face-value, we Americans have more depth than simply deciding the issues based on race vs gender.

doris...The Constitution protects my rights of representation by voice or vote...THAT OVERRIDES WHAT EVER GAMES THE POLITICIANS OR THE POLITICAL PARTIES WANT TO ENGAGE IN, OR RULE, OR BREAK THEIR RULES.

The Constitution ISN'T A RULE...., It protects my rights as an AMERICAN. So as a MICHIGAN RESIDENT, your statement is empty.
