i see what you're saying... but who is to say he even did it. do they have physical proof?

i see what bob's saying also. i read mccain's statement, which didn't overtly deny anything by the way.

i dunno, man. it seems like a calculated move to fuck up a candidacy, and obama's going to win anyway so who cares?

also, the conservative base already doesn't like mccain and the liberals obviously hate him... so with that said, such accusations won't change a damn thing.

What won't help him is if Nader becomes a candidate.

But my prediction is a split Democratic vote at the convention which means another candidate will be chosen.

That person will be Al Gore.

No I don't think he does. While I trust Nader more than Gore, Gore has most of the good qualities that Nader has and could actually be picked out of a police lineup by the average American.

I just got back from an Obama rally here in San Marcos. It was pretty nuts. I can't believe how many people came. It looked to me to be about 12,000. People were really pumped up. I enjoyed it.

Just got back from an Obama rally too. I've heard his rally speech probably a dozen times on T.V., but it was pretty cool to be there and hear it in person. Plus, afterwards I got to shake his hand and say hi.

BTW, Obama just pulled ahead in the Texas polls.

Looks like this thing's gonna be decided by a bloody knife fight at the convention...

I am so disappointed in Texas. I really thought Obama would win.

Despite losing the popular vote in Texas (giving Hillary all the headlines), it looks like Obama may actually come out on top with delegates.

So Hillary got the Texas vote after all?

How upsetting. I still don't think she'll win though.
