    This is political horse shoot in the bucket and Clinton had nothing to do with this. He's been out there in support of Meeks for months.Mr.Rowland straightened it out and don't throw Bill Clinton into this like he's responsible for some back door political on the sly deal and that sounds more like Obama's team ? Good luck Meeks but Rubio wins and will do a great job.

    A lot of black voters what Meek to drop out. This is not about Meek as it is about winning. He is not going to win and the sooner he realize the better it will be for the Dems. This is just not his time and he know this. He is just being a but head just like Michael Steele. This is not about pushing a black out of the race as it is winning and Steele is making a comment because he wants to WIN just like we do. Meek is losing so why would he continue to stay in a race he will not and can not win.

    I'm genuinely puzzled... We're at the stage in this story where reporters should be checking out these rumors, talking to sources, finding corroboration (or not), etc. Why is this all being played out in real time, in prime time? Cable news moves too fast: rumors now get coverage within minutes and so we all have to sit through the sausage-making of fact-checking and he-said/she-said. What a waste airtime.
