    The outlook on Iraq's future is so bleak. with an immediate troop pullout... I bet the Democrat elected for president will change their opinion on that right after the election.

    AMEN FL Democrat!!!

    PLus here are a few more things to ponder

    At this point to me the only thing that can be done that is anywhere close to fair is split the MI & FL delegates evenly. This way you will at least have the delegates from these states at the convention. I’m not saying I think this is fair, because it doesn’t give the voters in either state a chance to really vote what they feel.

    However, the voters in both MI & FL should have been paying attention in the 1st place. The DNC laid down the law in the fall of 2007 and prior to that there was buzz about this rule being put in place for ANY state to go against the DNC. They had the option to write, call and even march or do a sit-in at their respective state Capital’s starting last fall. If nothing else they should have taken action in Dec and early Jan. It is there responsibility to keep up with the political actions in their local governments and state legislature. If they are not happy or feel disenfranchised they need to take it out on their local & state officials at the polling place. Vote the idiots out that took these actions in MI & FL.

    I am a HUGE fan of CNN, and especially Anderson Cooper and Erica Hill. But I am becoming increasingly exasperated with the reporting of Jeremiah Wright's "personal political commentaries" that have nothing to do with Obama's political views. I thought this was America and we had a right to free speech? But that's beside the point. Can't you move on? Obama's answered the press and denounced Wright for what he said, but how can Obama pivot to the real issures of the campaign when you keep asking him questions about it?

    Furthermore, as much as Hillary claims to be a victim of the media’s hardball tactics, she's gotten off relatively easy considering she and Bill have a major campaign finance fraud trial coming up in California. Why has CNN chosen to not talk about this??

    The voters have a right to know about this and consider it when choosing their candidate. This to me is more newsworhy than whether Obama wears a flag lapel pin or not!

    I like Barrack Obama. He makes me feel good when he talks. He is very smart. I think he has a lot of leadership ability. BUT, I do not think that he should be given a cake walk to the nomination by the media. I believe that you and CNN have done nothing but served up softballs to him. Your questions are not to the point. Example: He says he is the only one who will get us out of Iraq immediately. Yet , in the same breath, he says Senator Clinton is being disenjenous because she will not say she will listen to the Generals. I think he is having it both ways because he is very glib of tongue and does not have an equal in the media that will call him on it. Also, I do not think giving him hours of press coverage in prime time and then saying that Senator Clinton would not abide by your rules so she does not get equal time is anwhere near fair. Come on, you are either smarter than this or you need to find another job. The only good political pundit on TV at the present id David Gergin..SP? (If you could clone him by a factor of ten we would all benefit).

    The biggest issue is not the violence in Iraq but the fact that the Government that we the US helped to form along with their constitution and their election has refused to step up to be a government.

    Why hasn't the government started to rebuild their country. Restoring electricity 24/7, running water. There is alot of oil money in Iraq. I expect to see cranes, I expect to see infrastructure building. This Iraqi Govt. is a joke. Our troops are not construction workers or contractors. The Iraqi Govt has to step up period. Are they that stupid. Does this Govt. want a civil war. I am starting to think that maybe the current government is using us. The longer we stay there more they sit on their rearends doing nothing. They have not met any political milestones that we have set.

    We don't need to have 140,000 troops but we will have some troops remain. I think the withdrawl will force the Iraqi Govt to get off their butts and govern.

    I have been following the story about Rev. Wright and his comments. My question is why aren't the media sources commenting on the actual issues that Rev. Wright brought up. Such as Mendela, foreign attacks on other countries, etc.

    The media should look at the whole context of the sermon, rather then taking his words out of context.

    I usually watch your show and was doing so this evening. I was shocked that DeeDee Meyers, as one of your panelist, commented that Barack Obama did not put his hand over his heart during the Pledge of Allegiance. Where has she been all of this time? I have heard him say, as many others have also said, that the picture of him where he did not put his hand over his heart was taken during the singing of the Star Spangled Banner and not of the Pledge of Allegiance. And, she is discussing how the comments of Barack's minister are going to impact his campaign?

    It's amazing how taboo it is talk about race in a country that was built in large part on the foundation of slavery! I am laughing at so many of these "used to be Barack supporters," these people saying how they supported him until race became a factor. They supported him UNTIL he gave? the republicans ammunition. They had ammunition from the moment he decided to run for President. Wake up! He was going to have to address race sooner or later. If you have such little faith in him that he would not see all this coming and be strong enough to deal with it, then you have not researched him enough and certainly need to join the McCain camp.

    I have no problem that someone would ask questions about statements such as those of Pastor Wright's. Not all, but some of them were wrong and misguided. I think it should be addressed and understood IN ITS ENTIRETY. I think it should be analyzed from a place of sincerity and truthfulness. Why? Because of the LONG history of racism in this country. Does it surprise you that some feel this way. Wow, you should leave your front porch a little more often!

    That some are shaken up and buying into some FOX clown's campaign to turn Obama into a "racist", as if that were possible, is beyond me!

    I agree with David Gergen that Iraq is going to cause problems for the Democrat if he/she becomes President.. but I think they need to make the case to us that America is choosing the lesser of the 2 evils. We can't stay in Iraq forever.

    All the candidates & the states knew what the DNC rules were before FLA & MICH moved the primaries. It was the republican Governor who changed the law and the elected folks let him without a fight. So the people needs to look at the people they put in office and no where else! Why are people saying that Clinton won when the candidates campaigned in those states but Clinton? Revote is not fair to anyone (Edwards)! Clinton needs to stop- when she was winning they shouldn’t- now she is losing they should –flip flop. If they change the rule there will be a lot of fall out because it’s not right. The Clintons always want to change the rules to fit them! There’s her being divisive, those papers she released today do they really support her statements about her experience or say nothing at all and where are the tax paper for 06?

    How exactly do you become a president who "won Iraq"? What is the definition of "winning"? I'd much rather be a loser, if it means saving lives and stopping the hemorrhage of funds.
