    It is a remarkable thing, the young people's enthusiasm for Obama and the rock star type image. But, the truth is, federal beauracracies are designed to change slowly, local government is designed to change quickly, and for good reason.

    Obama will not succeed in bringing the country together and changing Washington. He's been in the Senate for 2 years and he hasn't brought about any change there. He was against the war but he's voted for every war funding bill and he wasn't able to  bring the Senate to gether to override Bush's vetoes of the war funding with timetables for withdrawal.

    It's a mirage the idea that we are going to join together and unify behind Barack. I feel that Democrats are more powerfully divided about this choice than we've been about any other. I know I, as a woman, have been anguished by Obama's sexist rhetoric...especially since  it goes unchallenged and unrecognized by the media and by young women and men. We are a lost nation if sexism continues without notice.

      you directed toward Senator Obama, and your perception of what he hasn't done, your comment indicates that you support Sen. Clinton solely because she is a woman.  Other than Sen. Clinton's vote to give President Bush the right to go to war in Iraq, what legislation has she passed in her brief Senate term that convinces you that she is the person to lead this country?

      We can change the world. Let's start with America. Obama for America '08

        I don't support Hillary because she's a woman, but I do reject sexism and am loathe to support a candidate who treats women dismissively and with derision.

        Clinton has sponsored and passed legislation to get health care for veterans, and SCHIP, to mention two.

        Hillary has been working to help the poor and disenfranchised since forever...look at her record. You'll be amazed.
