    This is just wrong. The system here in Texas a mechanism by which one can win the popular vote and STILL have most of the delegates stolen by caucuses.

    Hillary won the popular vote. Obama supporters just flat screwed her.

    This isn't even relevant. Besides, Molly Ivins used to give Bush hell.

    The delegates weren't stolen and Obama's supporters did not "screw" Clinton. The parties can implement any system they choose. If they want to reward strength of support in addition to breadth of support, they are free to do so. There is nothing wrong about it, and neither Obama nor Clinton do anything wrong by winning caucuses. One may disagree whether it makes sense to implement such a system, but there you have it. Maybe they will amend it for the next presidential election cycle.

    I wonder if the delegates are aware of how 'slick' Obama is on oil?

    Cute... the right's starting with the "slick" stuff again.

    After 7 years of the most corrupt, incompetent self-serving administration I've seen in my lifetime, I really don't think y'all have standing to say word one about anyone else's candidates.

    Clean your own house.

    Jillian, you are comfortable with the facts? Funny, I'm way not comfortable with McCain on several fronts and have made that clear. You on the other hand, seems to excuse anything, is that what you wish to elect?

    For a newbie, you sure like to run your mouth without knowing WTF you're talking about. I've denounced Bush plenty of time. Guess that takes care of that little bit of stupidity.

    Second, this thread is not about Bush.

    Third, don't presume to tell me what you think I do and don't care about when you can't even think for yourself.

    The facts are pretty simple for someone who isn't so brainwashed to partisan bullshit and steeped in hatred for one man based on it.

    I'd prefer Hillary to win because she isn't as loony tune left as Obama. Hell, in comparison, she appears almost conservative.

    Then there's the fact I don't support McCain that kind of just shows your running off at the mouth for what it is.

    Feel free to go get an education and come back when you know WTF you're rambling on about.
