He won with the manufactured delegates from Michigan. If Clinton cannot fight that one in court, they have really lost their touch. She actually ended up with more elected delegates than he did. There is no way I would quit in her position. Super Delegates have shown how fickle they are.

Reminds me of the freak shows in England...Obama and Clinton could have been circus freaks...maybe their current popularity is because our young people never learned anything about history because their liberal professors were more interested in promoting liberalism instead of substance. Snake oil politics never delivers positive change. I wonder if Obama’s ego is so stroked that he doesn’t have a clue to the fact that he could not deliver a millionth of what he has said.

"This has been a long campaign and I will be making no decisions tonight."

When those tapes are released tomorrow morning, well.. oh wait, I meant when those polling numbers are released... oh never mind. I have to return to the bunker.

Barack Obama became the first black presidential nominee in U.S. history

WRONG.

US News: A Look At Other Black Presidential Candidates Before Obama

Lenora Fulani. In 1988, Fulani—a psychologist—ran as an independent and was the first black woman to appear on presidential ballots in all 50 states. She also ran in 1992.

First black Democrat presidential nominee. An amazing turn of events for the party that gave us the KKK, has a Klansman third in line of ascendency for the presidency, and opposed the Civil Rights Act of 1964 in greater numbers than the GOP.

None of the delegates were even supposed to count. Michagan was not supposed to count and Clinton herself said that. If the DNC had stuck by their guns, then neither candidate would have one any delegates from Michigan.

"This has been a long campaign and I will be making no decisions tonight."

I thought she was the one who could make a decision when the phone rang in the middle of the night.

Hillary’s speech tonight was pathetic. She gave some honor to Obama in general terms about how he had run a good campaign, but did not address the fact that he’s over the number of delegates needed for nomination. Nor did she concede, instead, saying she was making no decisions tonight. What the heck decision is there for her to make? She lost the nomination (barring unforeseen circumstances).

She’s going to meet with party leaders and check her e-mail as she asked people to e-mail her with suggestions going forward. Is she really going to read her e-mail where people suggest she shoot for the VP job, or run as a 3rd party candidate in the general election? I can’t believe some of the nonsense out of her mouth.

Darn right!

Obama stole half of Hillary's votes in Michigan, and the black racist never received a vote from the people.

It's really disgusting how the Democrats treat their own: No loyalty or fairness at all.

Heaven help us all if they run everything.

I saw a tiny bit of Obama’s speech, talking about a war that never should have been authorized (talk to your pals in the senate, mate!) and saying that the gas prices keep the unemployed from finding work, and to solve this, we need more caps on energy and pollution! Is this the kind of ignorant change that his voters support? Such appalling ignorance couldn’t possibly be serious!

Even if it is just for our sake (LOL) she should take it all the way to the convention. There is no way I would give up now especially with the amount of stuff that’s come out about obama after many of the primaries were already done. I think the race is not necessarily over for her and that also she is still after VP if she can’t get POTUS.

Give the superdelegates a chance to have their say and rip the democrats to apart!

“...Clinton refuses to concede Democratic nomination”

should read

Clinton tells entire nation...”Not tonight, I have a headache!”

A year ago I did not think such a headline was possible. Politics is indeed very strange.
