    I am a registered Democrat in NC and would like to proclaim a few things for those of you that "just follow party lines", the sheep of the party. This is a historic opportunity to witness the first black and female american to be elected. Hillary was given some special pass from the party since she was Bills lady, but she had no more experience that Palin. I will not vote Obama. He has a closet door ready to spring during the next months. Or, you haven't been paying attention. He is too shady. 24 year old, you cannot afford Obama unless you make 6 figures. You know nothing of history of the party. The liberals took over prior to the Carter years and swung way to the left over the past Clinton years. Clinton was moderate and was electible, Obama is liberal and so it Biden. They do not have your best interrest in mind, only your money. Again, the party doesn't offer us a canidate since Hillary is out of the loop. Period.

    To Rob, You know as well as I do if McCain goes to the Whitehouse, Bush will still be there. McCain has been so far up Bushes A** for the past eight years he is beginning to look like Bush. "TRUCKERS GET IT DONE THE TRUCKER WAY FROM COAST TO COAST TAKE BACK THE USA" Never forget truckers keep this country moving because "WE GET IT" You too Unites Steel Workers, help us take this one home for the Democratic Party and the American people. THANKS

    I have to say...this election has been interesting to say the least. I'm only 21, but since I've been able to vote, its always been republican. I've been on the fence this entire election...until now. After McCain's choice for VP...I'll now be voting dem in November. OBAMA 08!!!

    We are calling on all democrats to work three times as hard to keep the republicans out of the Whitehouse. We can not endure two more unqualified politician running America. If you love America get out there and take her back. "God bless America" "NO MORE OF THE SAME" "SAY NO BUT H**L NO TO McCAIN"

    You know, Woman Trucker, you may be right. I think there are a lot of us who are just tired of the last eight years and we are so frustrated with the way the country is. I'm inclined anymore to wait, see what happens, and vote (if I do) for whom is best qualified for the job. It dosen't matter if it's Obama, Nader, McKinney, Barr, or McCain. Change will be nice. Although look at this way- For the first time in 28 years, there will not be a Bush or Clinton in the White House!!! Now THAT is change I can believe in!!!

    They need to run a H**L of an investigation on McBush's new sidekick, She is not all she looks to be and if she gets in the Whitehouse she will be an imposture, Pretending to be VP when she is only a soccer mom and may not be to good at that. However I am not one to tell you not to vote for a soccer MOM LMAO.
