So, here I am, watching the democratic debate tonight. Poor Obama, seems he's loosing his edge and Hillary's zoning in for the kill. One positive thing I'll say for Hillary is that she knows how to play the game, and Obama does not (which is consequently why he won't win).

And now Hillary has said that the Republicans should apologize for the Bush Administration and for the last 8 years and should not even have a candidate running in this race. And then implied that people were stupid if they didn't agree.

Excuse me, Mrs Clinton, but who should be apologizing to whom?!?! You gave the American people nothing but an unapology a few weeks ago. You are the master of them and wouldn't apologize even if your life depended on it. And you are in politics, so you should know - BUSH DOES NOT HAVE SUPREME POWER!!! There's a thing called "checks and balances" that our country has. Any decision made in Washington is a joint decision between the President, and the Congress, which YOU are apart of, I might add. It was a democratic majority for the last 4 years. If you weren't happy about the way things were going, why didn't you oppose them???

How elitist and full of yourself do you have to be to demand an apology from me? Or from anyone in this country, for that matter. THIS is why you are not right for this job. I'd demand an apology from you for making us listen to you flap your lips and clog our airwaves with your crap, but then I'd be on the same level as you. You have a right to the 1st Amendment as anyone else, but your "I'm-better-than-you" attitude absolutely just ruins your image. YOU WILL NOT WIN. Or did you not hear all those votes you lost as those words flew from your mouth.

No doubt, you will most likely be on the airwaves tomorrow, trying to unapologize your way out of them or say your words were "misconstrued", but we won't buy it... No, Americans are too smart for that, Mrs. Clinton.

And btw, I am NOT embarrassed that I voted for Bush, and I'd do it again if I had to, especially to keep people like YOU out of office. The only thing I'm sorry for is that I didn't vote for him when he was against Al Gore. And in fact, I am also sorry that you are so offended by Bush that you had to resort to making a low comment as you did.

p.s. In the same debate, she mentioned that she would be the candidate to unite the two parties. You wanted an apology, Mrs Clinton? Here it is: SORRY!! Not gonna happen...not with your attitude. The only time playing both sides works is when you toss a penny in a coin toss, doesn't work for humans. Sorry!

So what's the deal with Superdelegates?

Many people aren’t really aware of what superdelegates are exactly. Sure, we hear of them in passing in the media, but I have yet to hear on news station, radio or television, say what they are.
Wikipedia defines them as such: “Superdelegate" is an informal term for some of the delegates to the Democratic National Convention, the quadrennial convention of the United States Democratic Party.
They have the same role as delegates – they can vote in the primaries, and enable them to get the nomination. BUT, they do not have to be elected not do they vote based on our votes. They vote how they feel like it, and they make up 1/5 of the delegate vote. Which may not be much, but if there is a close race as we have now between Obama and Hillary, they can turn the race.
Right now, Obama leads in number of delegates, but if the superdelegates put in their vote, then Hillary is ahead.
And guess just who two of these superdelegates are? Our two friends Bill and Hillary, who, mind you, already voted in this election once. They get to vote yet another time as superdelegates, which essentially gives them 2 votes – a normal one that you and I have, and a super vote.
Also taken from Wikipedia, these are the democratic members who are allegeable to cast a super-vote: “all former Democratic Presidents, all former Democratic Vice Presidents, all former Democratic Leaders of the U.S. Senate, all former Democratic Speakers of the U.S. House of Representatives and Democratic Minority Leaders, as applicable and all former Chairs of the Democratic National Committee.”
All of these people get TWO votes. Last time I checked, isn’t that unconstitutional? They just join the ranks of the illegals and people that live in two states who vote.
And before you ask, yes, Republicans have these type of delegates too. But they are called “unpledged delegates” and are not as much of an issue, as there is not a tie to break on the republican side. I do believe, however, that it is wrong for either party to have such a thing and people need to be more concerned about them to want to get rid of them completely. On CNN's website, had this to say: "Although the national Republican Party does not have these superdelegates, 123 members of the Republican National Committee are free to vote for any candidate at the GOP convention this summer in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Of those, 26 have already expressed support for McCain and three for Huckabee."
But I guess gas prices, free healthcare, and whining about tax cut checks are much more important.
