    Exactly how much is the Obama camp. paying CNN to be in his pocket. I find the attacks on Gov. Sarah Palin incredible and so unwarranted. As Americans we come along way since the 60's. Why is sexism taking the role of racism in present day? I was a Hillary supporter that is lost right now. CNN is just pushing into McCain's camp.

    Anderson, I heard that Gov. Palin was a candidate for the Miss Alaska contest. If so, do you know what year she participated in the beauty contest?
