<b>The 'Race' Factor</b>
FOX News - Sun Jan 27, 3:06 PM ET
Al Sharpton weighs in on the role of race in the Democratic primaries

Excellent, he is right and on dot for a change.
John Kerry said that "being an ex-pres does not give u a licence o distort the truth" referring to remarks made by Bill Clinton while campaigning for Hillary. NBC political chief says dems are mad as hell about Bill...
Mudy how accurate do you think reports of Barack being a muslim (even in the past) are? The Bible camp is trying really hard to convince people that he is a muslim. In fact, faux news was spreading this propaganda to people in 2007 I believe and then apologized later after it was revealed to them that he was xtian.

Both Bill and his wifey are liars.

<b>Obama: "Punjab" Memo Was A "Dumb Mistake</b>"<!--QuoteBegin-->QUOTE<!--QuoteEBegin-->In an interview with The Associated Press, Obama labeled the memo and its headline — <b>"Hillary Clinton (D-Punjab)" </b>— as "unnecessarily caustic." The memo had referred to Bill and Hillary Clintons' investments in India; her fundraising among Indian-Americans; and the former president's $300,000 in speech fees from Cisco, a company that has moved U.S. jobs to India.

"It was a dumb mistake on our campaign's part and I made it clear to my staff in no uncertain terms that it was a mistake," Obama told the AP in a brief interview.

The memo has created a furor in the Indian-American community and raised questions about Obama's claims that he is above attack politics epitomized by secretly distributing opposition research about a rival. Placing the blame on his staff is not new. Earlier this year, Obama faulted his staff for comments in a dispute with the Clinton camp over Hollywood donor David Geffen.
Obama was born of a fundamentalist muslim who then left him and his mom when he was 2.
<b>JD-U offers to campaign for Hillary in US</b><!--QuoteBegin-->QUOTE<!--QuoteEBegin-->"In case we receive an invitation, party Rajya Sabha Member of Parliament Digvijay Singh will go there and campaign in her favour," said Kumar.

He made the statement when asked to comment on reports that he and Singh have been approached by Hillary's campaign managers.

"So far, I have not received any invitation. If invited, Singh will go since he is well versed in foreign affairs," Kumar said.

Lauding profusely the first woman aspirant for the top job in the US, he said,<b> "I am definitely in favour of Democratic Party candidate Hillary Clinton".</b>

<b>Indicted Obama fundraiser Rezko arrested </b><!--QuoteBegin-->QUOTE<!--QuoteEBegin-->CHICAGO - Indicted political fundraiser Antoin "Tony" Rezko, who has poured thousands of dollars into Barack Obama's political campaigns, was arrested by federal agents Monday after his $2 million bail was revoked.

<b>Rezko had long been a fundraiser for Obama.</b> The Democratic presidential candidate and senator from Illinois has said he had no indication of problems with Rezko when he accepted thousands of dollars in campaign contributions. When prosecutors unsealed their charges against Rezko in 2006, Obama gave $11,500 in Rezko contributions to charities
<b>Earlier this month, Obama gave to charity more than $40,000 in past political contributions from seven individuals with ties to Rezko. The </b>decision to donate the money contributed to Obama's House and Senate campaigns — but not his current presidential bid — came after a published report that Obama is the unnamed "political candidate" in one paragraph of a 78-page prosecution document that outlines the case against Rezko.

<b>Obama also has had to answer questions about how Rezko became involved in the purchase of the Obama family home as well as other ties that go back more than 15 years.</b>

Obama got 80% of black vote. White vote was a three-way split between the candidates.

Probably THis will be the last male democrat candidate in any election.
From #27:

Lauding profusely the first woman aspirant for the top job in the US, he said, "I am definitely in favour of Democratic Party candidate Hillary Clinton".

This guy probably has no other rationale for his choice than the fact that Hillary is gora chamdi mem. She is blonde too, which makes her mem-er.

Not that I have anything against Hillary..she is the pick of the lot as far as I am concerned. Obama seems too raw (with only 4 yrs experience), and will have a hard time working with anyone in DC. Yeah, yeah..JFK was young too..but he had good looks. Now Eddie Murphy could win if he decided to take up politics (I'm serious).
<!--QuoteBegin-->QUOTE<!--QuoteEBegin-->Probably THis will be the last male democrat candidate in any election. <!--QuoteEnd--><!--QuoteEEnd-->
You mean, last white male democrat candidate.

Media is playing big game, I thought Indian media is nasty, here they are worst. Lets see how much it will effect voters. Repb money is in good use.

Who knows, we may see Gore as candidate and once again we will have Rep government.

Romney or Huckabee had better shot.
Sen. Edward Kennedy to support Obamam
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Sen. Edward Kennedy, who bears one of the most famous names in politics and is a leading liberal voice in the Congress, will endorse Sen. Barack Obama's presidential campaign on Monday, Democratic sources said.

Kennedy, the youngest brother of assassinated President John F. Kennedy and a veteran senator from Massachusetts, intends to announce his support for Obama at American University in Washington, a source close to the senator said.

Far left endrosement at this stage may hurt him more.
A good report that will help people who do not understand primary elections in US

enjoy it

01/28/08 10:23 AM An endorsement from the man who has killed and did no time, that puts him right in the same cell as Charlie Manson in my opinion.  I'm not voting for anyone democratic any way.  I also wonder why they refer to her as "Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton" in the news stories, but do not say "Barack Hussein Obama" in his news stories.  Is the media playing favorites?  Or trying to lessen the fact of who he is named after?  It scares me to think of either of these two candidates to become president.

01/28/08 10:39 AM I have always supported the Kennedy family since i was a child, i feel betrayed and disrespected by the family. Hillary was getting the majority of the female vote. Clearly the democratic party now is hampering women in the United States and obviously they don't even care. We should send Kennedy a black flower arrangement because he died to numerous democratic women today.  If Hillary does not get the nomination..I will not vote Obama.  The media didn't even catch his reverse discrimination of John Edwards at the last debate where John was just a White man.  Perhaps the republician party can do an outreach to the democratic women-We need help- Our party does not care about us.  I urge all democratic women who feel betrayed like me to call Kennedy and tell him they will no longer endorse him until he accepts our views as women.  It probably was best if he did not endorse at all.  Also, I urge all democratic women that are Hillary supporters to let the democratic party know we will not take this abusive approach to our future(s). Now is the time to UNITE WOMEN within the Democratic Party.  If they continue to push Obama down our throats-we will not vote and the  may again be in the white house.  I am a mother, sister, wife, aunt, worker, and daughter  MY VOTE COUNTS  STOP TELLING ME WHO YOU ENDORSE AND WHO TO VOTE FOR IN THE PRIMARY.

01/28/08 10:24 AM What will be interesting is the trip Obama (Hussein-Bin-Lama) took with the most notorious Muslim Louis Farrakan to see the Muslims terrorists back in the late 80's.  That will be interesting. Two muslim radical fathers. It is amazing how gullable people are in this country surely as the muslims stated we will get the US from within. Looks like the anti-christ is emerging.

01/28/08 10:24 AM Strange to see Ted Kennedy talking about changing the evil atmosphere in Washington while Andrea Mitchell gloats in the background about Hillary Clinton being hurt by this endorsement - really ugly, Andrea...

So what if the Kennedy's endorse Obama!  They're as corrupt as they come.  Never liked them, and don't like Obama.  Enough said!

mysonismyheroMessage #36
01/28/08 10:26 AM Hillary Clinton should be down on her knee's thanking God that Ted -I never met a bottle of Jack Daniels I didn't like- Kennedy has endorsed Obama!  She is indeed a lucky lady.

jerasmilesMessage #81
01/28/08 10:42 AM As much as I think that Senator Obama is perhaps what we need as a president, I think with the Kennedy endorsements he just lost the nomination for the Democratic party.  Their endorsement of Obama will make the Independent voters back-off and he can't win in the primaries without them, especially as he heads west.  Hillary isn't liked by Indpendent's and if she wins the nomination, I think the Republicans will come out in droves.  Personally, I think it's time for a third party candidate to step forward since the candidates of both parties only offer more of the same.  Same free trade policies, bigger national debt, larger trade deficit, higher taxes, and all of the candidates are for the (SPP)  Security Prosperity Partnership, which will give amnesty to the illegal aliens and form the North American Union.

01/28/08 10:33 AM I feel that the Kennedys are traitors to the Clintons. I will not vote for Obama even if JFK came back from the dead to support Obama. Again, I do not think that just because someone is black he should be president. If the democrats choose Obama, I will vote Republican. Teddy and Caroline you are both traitors.

01/28/08 10:16 AM Rain fell on Teddy's parade with the announcement Reczko was arrested today by the FBI.  Bad timing, Teddy.  What is your endorsement worth?  Ask John Kerry who also got your endorsement.  You have been a non-player in the party for decades now.  But, it makes you feel good, I guess.  Sorry about the rain today.

01/28/08 10:18 AM These Kennedy's are no way close to John or Bobby, these Kennedy's are a joke and the brothers would probably be turning in their graves to see the nonsense little edward has become. The EXTREEEME left endorses Obama it is just to show in whcih direction this team is heading. Next they will invite Castro and Bin Laden to retire in this U.S.  More and more the anti-christ (obama bin lama) is showing his stripes.

chalmersMessage #63
01/28/08 10:36 AM The Kennedy endorsement tells me that it's not just Republicans who don't want to see the Clintons back in the White House. Are both sides willing to risk everything to make that happen? It seems so. Putting Obama in the White House, at this perilous time, could be national suicide.

01/28/08 10:37 AM You are right Max, it will be if Obama wins the Democratic Ticket, Hello Mr McCain, President Sir!
The kiss of death was when Clinton made Obama validate Bill as his brother. Even Sonia made Bacchan validate her as Raja and himself as Runk. These validations are the key ingredient for western domination.
<b>Obama would nuke the Indo-US deal</b>
<!--QuoteBegin-->QUOTE<!--QuoteEBegin-->The Hyde Act, passed by the US Congress in 2006, is a legal provision that enables the US Administration to negotiate and conclude an agreement for nuclear trade with India. Obama was one of the 17 Democrat Senators who proposed amendments that would have struck down the Act if any of them had been passed.

His amendment opposed giving India the right to build strategic fuel reserves for its imported nuclear reactors. As it turned out, the Obama amendment was rejected along with the other “killer” proposals and the Hyde Act passed into law. <!--QuoteEnd--><!--QuoteEEnd-->

<b>Odinga says Obama is his cousin </b><!--QuoteBegin-->QUOTE<!--QuoteEBegin-->Kenyan opposition leader Raila Odinga has said he is a cousin of US presidential hopeful Barack Obama.
Mr Odinga told the BBC's The World Today that Senator Obama's father was his maternal uncle.

Mr Obama has previously been identified as a distant cousin of Vice-President Dick Cheney

He said Mr Obama had on Monday taken time out of campaigning for the New Hampshire primary to call him twice, to express his concern, and to say that he would also be calling Mr Kibaki


Mr Odinga party is behind current Kenya killing
Florida Republicans Vote
McCain 36%
Democrats Vote
Clinton 50

Giuliani to quit race, endorse McCain

Giuliani look very sick, no info out yet, but something had happened to him in St. louis, when he was in hospital for couple of days.
His cancer is back?

McCain - another skin cancer patient
Romney is still better candidate.

<b>Must read</b> -
<b>Bush quietly advising Hillary Clinton, top Democrats, says new book</b><!--QuoteBegin-->QUOTE<!--QuoteEBegin-->Bolten said Bush wants enough continuity in his Iraq policy that “even a Democratic president would be in a position to sustain a legitimate presence there.”

“Especially if it’s a Democrat,” the chief of staff told The Examiner in his West Wing office. “He wants to create the conditions where a Democrat not only will have the leeway, but the obligation to see it out.”

To that end, the president has been sending advice, mostly through aides, aimed at preventing an abrupt withdrawal from Iraq in the event of a Democratic victory in November 2008.

<b>“It’s different being a candidate and being the president,” Bush said in an Oval Office interview. “No matter who the president is, no matter what party, when they sit here in the Oval Office and seriously consider the effect of a vacuum being created in the Middle East, particularly one trying to be created by al Qaeda, they will then begin to understand the need to continue to support the young democracy.” </b>

To that end, Bush is institutionalizing controversial anti-terror programs so they can be used by the next president.

“Look, I’d like to make as many hard decisions as I can make, and do a lot of the heavy lifting prior to whoever my successor is,” Bush said. “And then that person is going to have to come and look at the same data I’ve been looking at, and come to their own conclusion.”

As an example, Bush cited his detainee program, which allows him to keep enemy combatants imprisoned at Guantanamo Bay while they await adjudication. Bush is unmoved by endless criticism of the program because he says his successor will need it.

<b>“I specifically talked about it so that a candidate and/or president wouldn’t have to deal with the issue,” he said. “The next person has got the opportunity to analyze the utility of the program and make his or her decision about whether or not it is necessary to protect the homeland. I suspect they’ll find that it is necessary. But my only point to you is that it was important for me to lay it out there, so that the politics wouldn’t enter into whether or not the program ought to survive beyond my period.” </b>

The Examiner asked Bush why Democratic candidates such as Clinton and Barack Obama, who routinely lambaste his handling of Iraq, should take his advice.

<b>“First of all, I expect them to criticize me. That’s one way you get elected in the Democratic primary, is to criticize the president,” Bush replied. “I don’t expect them to necessarily take advice from me. I would expect their insiders to at least get a perspective about how we see things.” </b>

He added: <b>“We have an obligation to make sure that whoever is interested, they get our point of view, because you want somebody running for president to at least understand all perspectives, apart from the politics.”</b>

Besides, Bush suggested that Clinton and Obama just might benefit from his advice.

<b>“If I were a candidate running for president in a complex world that we’re in, I would be asking my national security team to touch base with the White House just to at least listen about plans, thoughts</b>,” he said
This is great about USA, national priority is always first, not like Indians.
Continuation of policy is very important.
Obama is fighting this election on anti-war agenda, his 60 days return policy, lets see whether he can do, but after Ted endrosement it will be impossible.
Behind administration will make sure that Hillary gets white house.
