    I think it's clear by Fox News Channel's overblown coverage of the Rev. Wright story that their GOP sponsors want to steer the Democratic nomination to Hillary Clinton because they know they stand a much better chance of winning against her as opposed to Obama.

    Really? I guarantee that every station, including Fox would make it the leading story every single night if Obama had just been a Republican. After all, the NY Times put Abu Ghraib as their headline story every day for 46 straight days -although absolutely NO new information was found after day 9 and CBS ran a phony story right before the 2004 election about Bush -hoping it would affect the election outcome. If you want to play the game of whether the media is more biased to the left or right -you are going to lose that one.

    Personally I think Obama is more defeatable than Clinton. As much as I can't stand the Clintons who disgraced the White House, if forced to choose between the two, I would have to pick Clinton. Although I was utterly CHARMED by Obama's speech at the Democratic Convention in 2004. The man is undeniably charismatic which can cover a lot of flaws. (As we well know after Bill Clinton.)

    But I think he is more defeatable because Obama's record in the Illinois legislature shows he is far more to the left than Clinton -who is pretty far left as it is although she has spent the last four years in particular trying to cover her tracks. And those on the far left or far right -just aren't electable. Obama's record is even extreme left at times and he isn't going to be able to hide that. Clinton has no reason to attack his left extremist views and record since the Democrats voting in primaries are more to the left than in a general election -but come time to campaign for the general election, McCain sure will. Especially since McCain needs to convince independents that he isn't near as leftwing as either Clinton or Obama.

    I find it very odd that extreme liberals always pretend to be far more conservative in the general election than they really are -but conservatives tend to run as conservatives. Everyone else suddenly adopts conservatism when in the general election.

    Want to know the Democratic ticket that will hand the election to McCain? Both Clinton and Obama on the same ticket. It will be a difficult election for either one of them to be the FIRST to be elected -whether as a woman or a black. But both at the same time and on the same ticket? One or the other could make it -but both at the same time? I just don't see it happening in this country yet.

    The ploy to try and shift the villification of Hillary from foaming at the mouth lefties to the right is about as glaringly obvious as daylight.

    The fact is, any conservative in their right mind wouold prefer Clinton to Obama. That isn't really saying a whole lot on her behalf. Only that she is actually more moderate than he is. A scary thought in and of itself.

    Excellent and for many an obvious point. Conservative MSM fears an Obama candidacy as he offers a point of view that contradicts their worldview. Clinton is an easier target as she has a history and let's not forget she is a she. McCain too has a history as you notice so often today in his swearing allegiance to the ideological church the republicans have become. Obama on the other hand doesn't have this long history so Wright becomes that history. Wright and other irrelevancies are all the Rove spin bastards have, so spin they do. This piece on Fox, from one of its own was interesting, even Wallace called them to task for not reporting news but reporting conservative MSM ideology.

    This is like saying bin laden wanted Kerry to be the president.

    Does FOX define your thoughts?

    I've been saying this for months. Not about Fox, but about how republicans are falling head over heals to push Clinton onto the ballot.

    I disagree. FOX will never support one Dem candidate over another. They are just slamming Obama because they think he is the annointed one from the Dems and he will be facing McCain.

    I just hope there are no more Rev Wrights in the woodwork.

    Where is your link showing that the GOP sponsored their coverage of Dr. Racist Wright? I believe at this point Clinton is polling better than Obama against MCcain. So your post is flawed factually and logically.
