Please tell me why the current No. 2 presidential candidate in the Democratic race, Hillary Clinton, had her husband ask Barack Obama to be her running mate when he's first place in this race?
Wait a minute, let's count those votes from Michigan and Florida real quick. Would you look at that! The votes that previously didn't count, may count very soon by a below-the-belt-hitter, first-class whiner: Hillary Clinton. Good job, Hillary; many of the folks I hang out with at college don't support and didn't vote for you, and I never will, even if it means I vote for John McCain!
If the Democratic Party turns away the young voters so easily, we will turn on it. I vote to rally against these cheap moves and ridiculous e-mails about Obama, all of which are not true.
By the way, Mrs. Clinton, who is going to pay for your recount? Not your pals in Washington, so I'm guessing the dear people of this country will.
Thank you for taking the little money and hope we had left out of our pockets. Too bad you're not president yet, or I could officially discredit your loyalty to this republic.
