As a Democrat, I’m still deciding if I should vote for Obama or Clinton in the primaries. Any advice?

By admin ~ December 5th, 2010 @ 5:00 am
Or is there another candidate who you feel would be better? Personally, I think Hillary Clinton and Barak Obama would both make great Democratic presidential nominees, but in the near future we’ll be asked to pick one nominee out of the several people running. What do you think?

    Vote Obama in 2008 both in the primary and the general election. Visit as much information as you want about him, you will feel the same way when you are done, and you will vote for him. Guaranteed.

    Hillary is a liar, and has gotten good at telling her lies and skirting all the issues, yet winging it. Do you notice how she attempts to make all answers better than others than speaking from her own mind. She has no answers, and messes up when she is asked a question first, so she tries to make everybody laugh to avoid looking stupid.

    Go with the one that comes closest to your own beliefs. If you believe they are too close to call flip a coin.

    vote for clinton….we need a woman in the white house….GIRL POWER!!!!

  5. amnesty sucks

    Before you vote, look at their recent promises and comments.

    Hillary – raise taxes, illegals get amnesty

    Obama – bomb Pakistan, won’t wear an American flag on his lapel out of protest to the war (unpatriotic)

    I don’t support ANY of the democrats since they are soooooo far to the left they are socialists. Whatever happened to personal responsibility and taking care of yourself instead of demanding that the government do it for you?

    I debated who I was going to vote for up until about July, I have now decided that Hillary seems to be untrustable.

    I like what Obama says and he seems far more trustworthy then Hillary. To me Hillary has become a member fo the Washington elite and no longer has the interest of individual at heart. She is funded by Corporate America and seems to be the democratic version of Bush.

    It has been consistantly reported that Obama is known for actually reading the bills he’s voting for, and is known as having a better understanding of bills then most in Congress. He is (imo) the most intelligent of the candidates and the most likely to beat the republican candidate.

    Hillary is already extremely well known and most people already know whether or not they would vote for her in the general election. The point is she already has a number of supporters and enemies, so she likely will not pick up many swing voters and will be reliant on the democratic base which has failed to elect there representative the past 2 cycles.

    I say as a Democrat OBAMA is our man in 2008.

    Great question, I was considering these two until I did some more research. You have to realize that both parties have failed.. The neo conservatives of the Republican Party support a failed war on false pretenses. The democrats were elected into congress in 2006, with nothing to show for it. The current democratic candidates just dance around the issue of Iraq and continue to play the blame game. Neither Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama has a proper exit strategy outlined for Iraq. Not too mention they both support full amnesty for illegals and both voted for the Patriot Act, which is a direct infringement on our privacy….

    Many will express their disgust in our current government, but simply not voting is not the solution. This election is crucial for us, if we ever want to see a change. This is the time we need to be more involved than ever. I went from supporting a democrat, to not even wanting to vote.. to researching all the candidates until I finally found a solution. He is anti-war, wants to lower taxes for the middle class and poor, voted no against the Patriot Act, voted no against the amendment banning gay marriages. He believes the United States should have a non-interventionist foreign policy where we trade and negotiate with other countries instead of fighting useless wars where so many innocent people die. He wants to drastically reduce the debt the United States is in and restore our country to the democracy it once was. Finally we have a voice for the people. One that isn’t backed by corporations and lobbyists. but by the people.. Ron Paul is a man of his word. Just check his track record. He knows where he stands on the issues, unlike other candidates whose stances seem to change from week to week. I truly believe he can boost the morale of this country and restore a democracy for the people not just for the elite…

    Some more things to consider, their voting records..

    With these stances on the issues, are these the people you really want running the country.. Our job as voters is to be informed so we can select the right person who will benefit the majority of this country… not just the elite.. Unfortunately Hillary and Barack are not those candidates..

    IF YOU WANT YOUR CHILDREN AND YOUR CHILDREN’S CHILDREN TO LIVE IN A FREE COUNTRY, I WOULD ADVISE YOU AGAINST VOTING FOR OBAMA AND HILLARY CLINTON……”GOD HELP AMERICA”……..HILLARY CLINTON IS WEARING THE “MASK” OF A “MOVE TO THE CENTER” “CONSERVATIVE”. DON’T LET HER FOOL YOU. BENEATH THAT DISGUISE IS A HARD-CORE, ULTRA RADICAL, LIBERAL, SOCIALIST EXTREMIST……HILLARY CLINTON AND OBAMA BOTH ARE FOR:…….. TAKING OUT THE SECOND AMENDMENT , ACCORDING TO HILLARY CLINTON SHE STATED MANY TIMES THAT “AMERICAN CITIZENS DO NOT NEED GUNS, THAT THE SECOND AMENDMENT SHOULD BE ABOLISHED”……..HILLARY CLINTON AND OBAMA WILL SEEK TO DISARM THE AMERICAN PUBLIC, A LONG STANDING GOAL OF THE UNITED NATION, THIS PRO-MUSLIM, PRO-LUCIFER, ANTI- AMERICAN, ANTI- ISRAEL ORGANIZATION…..ABORTION WILL BE ON DEMAND: PROTEST ILLEGAL……”WELCOME TO THE POLICE STATE 2008″…..CENSORSHIP OF THE NEWS: INTERNET, INTERNET RADIO, NEWS BLOGGERS AND BIBLE PROPHECY SITES…..BAN ON CHURCHES SAYING THAT HOMOSEXUALLY IS A SIN….THIS WILL BEGIN THE SILENCE OF THE CHURCHES……”HER ACTION AGAINST ISRAEL WILL BRING GREAT JUDGMENT AGAINST THE UNITED STATES”…..

    censorship
    less rights
    more government control
    distruction of our country
    she has no respect for our military

    Democrats should look at all the candidates and decide who best represents their views. Who is the strongest anti-war
    candidate. That would be Kucinich. Who has the best
    foreign policy experience. That would be Biden. Who has the most White House experience. That would be Hillary.
    Who has the most interesting middle name. That would be Obama.

    I could certainly give you advice to this delima you are facing… but you cant , let me put it this way, you can lead a horse to water , but you certainly can’t make it drink it. So with that having been said I can only tell you this. Yes I am too a registered Dem. so for me it’s all to personal. I would definatley take Hillary, based solely on the premises that I would love to see a Female run this country. Men have been doing it all too long. It would be nice to see how a woman puts into perspective how and why the world is operating the way that it is. So that would just be my $.02 worth. Good Luck!
