MEET YOUR NEXT PRESIDENT
Obama kicked Hillary's ass in Iowa tonight. And his speech afterwards was absolutely presidential. Love how he called out for an end to the politics of fear and using Sept. 11 to get votes. That's a big middle finger to you, Dubya. Barack's got my vote. Mike Fuckabee -- oh, yeah, that's what I'll be calling him -- cannot win. This country does not need four more years of crazy, Christian conservative rule.

*sigh* I was really rooting for Edwards, but I'll take Obama over Clinton any day of the week. What really gets to me, though, is that the media refuses to give Edwards any air time yet he came in second in Iowa, down from a lead he held early in the night when the smaller counties had their votes in first. What really matters though is that it's very obvious this Country is crying for change, the middle class/working class is standing up.

Mike Huckabee is who the Republicans deserve for courting the religious freak vote.

Obama is a great candidate.

yes! Great speech! Finally some hope - but he needs to keep saying "centrist" stuff just to get elected . . . and on the catty side - Michelle's dress was just a tad tight around that booty lmao - and then the prez front-runner used the phrase "shout-out" re thanks to his wife - LOL!

Rachel, I like Edwards okay, but he never had a prayer. He's too associated with Al Gore's failed bid and he doesn't have the bank that Obama and Clinton at their disposal. I think America wants to wipe the slate clean of anyone's who tried to run before and get totally new blood in the White House. Obama is it!

go obama. i usually don't get excited about presidential candidates -- you have to be congenitally insane to want to be president -- but i am hoping beyond hope obama wins.

hillary would be mediocre or bad, romney a bust, fuckabee a disaster. but as bad as another christian conservative would be in the wh, it wouldn't be bad as guiliani.

rudy g. = world war 3. not to mention a perpetual police state. (and i am totally serious when i say that).

Hi Collin. I do hope you are right.

I heard the news on NPR this morning. If I remember correctly, he wasn't too far ahead of Edwards. The only thing about Obama for me... I wish he had more experience.

I was beyond tickled to see Mr. Obama win this round. His speech flowed with grace and experience of a future president. I thought the fear of 9/11 comment was aimed at a certain former Mayor. Here's to a interesting 08.

Happy New Year to all.

Hi there, kids...
I love Obama.I had been hoping for a last-minute bid(when Hillary fails, which I have said for over a year, she will)from Gore(I know several REPUBS AND INDEPENDENTS that would vote Gore!!), but running for Prez would be a step "down" for him, now.
I think Edwards/Obama would DEFINITELY win(Edwards=experience & no links to war-lobbyists;Obama=great hope & new policies.)I do NOT think people feel Edwards "failed" in the 2004--that was all about the Swifties sabotaging Kerry et al(sigh).
I hope if Obama DOES win the nomination, he'll pick someone really strong for V.P. spot.NOT Hillary(I don't think she'd accept second-spot, anyway!)

You're so right about Clinton not taking the second position. However, if she's smart she may take it for a another chance at the first position. What a year this will be. I really hope Mr. Obama wins.
