Chicago politics are known for being some of the more scandalously driven politics in the United States. That is where Barack Obama calls home, and it's why he picked up a 2-1 margin in caucus delegates over Hillary Clinton even though Hillary Clinton was leading or tied in the caucus contest polls.

Bring it on, bring it all on. The guy got backing from the D.N.C. higher ups, who should have been neutral, and I ms so disgusted with the D.N.C. I can't believe I am actually going to vote Republican this fall just to see them topple.

Maybe the SUNDAY TALK shows should have SNL members on instead since they are the one that are the "REAL CANDIDATES" and are leading "PUBLIC OPINION"

here's the Leslie Sanchez transcript (0.00 / 0)
"SANCHEZ: Well, it's absolutely correct. I mean let's look at the bottom line is Democrats benefit from this economic downturn. People want to punish the party of power and that's the reason you have seen the fluctuations in these battleground states. A lot has so much more to do with this economic implosion and what's happening on Capitol Hill than it has to do with the candidacy of Barack Obama and any fresh ideas.
I mean, let's just -- call it a spade a spade. With respect to that, he knows the conversation could shift. Now that that were normalizing this economic issue, there's going to be a change and look at the fact that we have a month to go and in a political campaign, that's an eternity. So he's correct. You are going to see them be aggressive in these attacks and try to keep the issue on the economy. But there is a lot of other concern with respect to judgment and experience that are going to be alluded to.

BLITZER: How much, Hilary, will this latest effort by Sarah Palin and the McCain campaign to try to revive the whole questions about experience, his judgment, Barack Obama, how much will it resonate?

ROSEN: You know, the McCain campaign has no choice right now but to try to hit the reset button on this campaign. And as we have seen over the course of the last two months once they were successful doing it, when they picked Sarah Palin, and polls seemed to bounce a little bit and once they were unsuccessful which is when John McCain jumped in on the economic issue, I don't think that they are going to be successful if their reset button attempt here is to go negative against Barack Obama. He's too risky and too liberal, he's not ready.

PUTRID RACIST, apologize for your calling a spade a spade crack!
