  1. “Without the Hispanics, Clinton does not win,” Adolfo Carrión,
    It seem that we have worked so long and hard to matter in this country just to be set back another two hundred years by the Hispanic vote. I don’t believe the hispanics in america fully understand what they have done. Even Though we stood with them and marched with them when the U.S. said get out. We made picket signs that said” hell no we wont go” because we know what it is to be left behind and treated like second class citizens. They had a chance to stand and make history but chose to block the greatest progress the U.S. has ever been on the verg of making. History will allways blame the Hispanic vote for stalling America. We still love you but we hurt because of you. Will it be your fault when the supper delegates are not given to Obama? Maybe not but you sure made it easier for that to happen. That’s one small step for a man; one giant leap backwards for mankind. My soul cries out in agony. I hope you will not continue in this direction.

  2. According to the demographics, I should be voting for Hillary Clinton: I’m a white, 60-year-old, highly educated woman from the Northeast. But I’m voting for Obama. I’ve waited all my life for a viable woman candidate for the presidency, but this is not the right woman. I want a woman of the highest ability and virtue, who would serve as a glorious role model to all young women. Hillary Clinton is not that woman.
    She rode into power with her husband, and together they’ve acquired a long and seriously flawed history of self-serving and secretive financial and political dealings. The most cursory research will prove that true. She started out her political life supporting the racist Barry Goldwater. She is as comfortable with deception and trickery as George Bush. When I hear woman saying, “Oh, but that’s how you get things done in Washington,” I literally cringe.
    I am passionately supporting Barack Obama. He can beat the Republicans; she cannot. Obama has attracted Independents and even Republicans to his camp, and in a general election they would vote for him, but not for Clinton. Clinton voted for the war, and has never apologized for it. Obama has spoken out against it from the beginning. Obama brings us hope–and not just that. Take a serious look at his ideas and experience.
    Please, I beg of you, Sisters young and old: wait for the right woman. Then we can be proud.
