Why is it so shocking that staunch HRC supporters are having a hard time backing Obama? They might be smarter than Obama and McCain supporters, combined. They can see that if Obama gets elected, he'll run again on the Dem ticket in '12 and she'll NEVER get her chance. But if he loses, that opens the gates for HRC to run against a very old, and more than likely, subpar performance by McCain in his four-year shot.

Hillary will be a great Attorney General. History will shine well on Hillary as she takes on all the BS thats happened the past decade. The Attorney General is far more important in this political climate than VP.

Hey Igor - if your REASON for opposing Obama is racist (e.g. I can't figure out the difference between Saddam Hussein and Barack Obama, and his ferrin name scares me) then... well, you figure it out.

The Clinton Attorney General talk makes sense in the real world, but you have to remember this is far from the real world. It's politics. And in this world, where our "leaders" (selective readers, see both parties) have an indeligible craving for power that we cannot even comprehend, HRC would not accept that position. She wants power, not responsibility.

I wouldn't count Hillary down and out as of yet. I believe her speech tonight will ignite fireworks at the convention. I think it will turn out to be one of the most entertaining conventions we have seen in a long time. Moey

This is the group that wants to run the country, they can't even get their north and south wired together. I'm sure that in the end everyone will hug and make up. Right now, it's not so much what's said as much as what isn't being said. You don't need a stage to communicate.

They are begging her right now to behave herself. Pitch the party line and unity and get off the stage. If she says anything contradictory to her comments on the campaign, she will have made a fool of herself, and that will not happen.
