Hillary glad Kennedy did not endorse her...

According to CNN:
(CNN) — CNN's Ted Barrett reports that on the Senate floor just minutes ago, Massachusetts Sen. Ted Kennedy, who has endorsed Sen. Barack Obama, approached Sen. Hillary Clinton during the vote on the economic stimulus package. He shook her hand and said something that caused her to laugh loudly — it seemed to be about her success in Massachusetts last night. Obama, standing two feet away talking to Sen. Tim Johnson, turned.

After a few more comments that couldn't be overheard from the press gallery directly above them, Clinton laughed again and said to Obama. "I had a big sigh of relief when he [Kennedy] endorsed you." Everyone laughed, a little awkwardly. Sen. John Kerry, who has also endorsed Obama, took the Illinois senator by the elbow and walked away with him.


I was thinking earlier that part of the reason many want Obama is because they hate Hillary and it seems that hate is driving some of the Republicans as well who support Romney not because he's the best but because they hate McCain. How does that reflect on us as a nation when we are not driven to act by those who are better but those we hate less...

I have decided to support Hillary. I find him inauthentic. He puts on a good show, but the substance behind it is hard to discern.

I see her 5 Million loan, as putting HER money where HER mouth is!

And we gave her some of ours tonight. Signed, sealed, delivered...Hillary...We're yours.

Gary, that's where I'm headed as well, thanks for letting me know what you decided.

I concur with Gary. If I am unable to go with John Edwards, then I am going for Hillary. Clinton over Obama, I say. Substance with a proven record of accomplishments over talk with no accomplishments that are substantive.
