Deval is a cool name.
Hillary tried to imitate Barack once., and no one went along with it.. turns out, 'Yes we will' = fail.

Rhode Island was what Hillary won? I wouldn't be proud of that, thsat should have like, five delegates. It has more then I'm really surprised.

But Ohio..that's gonna be a problem.

Great job Homerun's state >: (

I know, right? D: Way to go, everyone else in Ohio.

To make things worse, I'm pretty sure no president in the last 50 or so years has won the nomination without winning Ohio. This does not bode well. Honestly though, I'll be happy if anybody but Hilary wins.

Yeah, I'm from Ohio too.

Sorry guys.

Though I sort of deep down hope that Hillary will win so it'll make it easier for the Republican nominee to win.

Ohio's the new Hugo.

So did Obama win Texas? Because I'm hearing different things on this.

The Hillary hate seems to be pretty universal among the Internet crowd. I don't blame them, either.

I'm hoping Obama wins it, if only to see the [rule 6]s on FOX News have aneurysms live on air.

Well of course the Internet hates her, she opposes video games. And that's like saying that everything you believe in is wrong and you're a stupid-mclameface on the Internet.

Heh, I actually wanted to vote for Bush (wasn't legal age yet) in the 2000 election because I didn't want Lieberman as VP for that reason. Of course, now I realize that there is more to life than video games, and what's more, Lieberman would have been less powerful as VP than as Senator anyway.

Yeah, but at least I have class, Ace.

Most kids my age actually call people "Bundle of sticks" and stuff like that. Ticks me off.

EDIT: I do not approve of the cigarette, eh? censor.

EDIT2: WHAT. You censor fag00t too?

Well it was clever, I was more surprised Rad didn't get it.

I want Obama to win because Hillary winning is like signing a death warrant for the Democrats this election.

Mainly this, also, HE GOT BIG EARS SO HE HEARS WHAT PEOPLE WANT LIKE AN ELEPHANT

ALSO:

Hilary's campaign shops any footage they put out of Obama to make him look blacker. That's right. They actually AMPLIFY the blackness of his skin in anti-Obama commercials.

This is the woman that won Ohio and Texas.

WHAT, AMERICA

The "3 AM" ad also played well.
Rule 1 of politics, if you need votes, mention "your children". Not enough people hate children to offset the uptight soccer mom demographic.

Source?

(I'm not disputing this; in fact, I think it's highly likely, I just want to see where you're coming from with this.)

I don't want to play devil's advocate here, but notice how the background around him is darker, too. It could be a product of poor video quality.

I mean, I don't like Hil either, but I'm just saying, consider all the options first. Besides, I can't see why making him look blacker would discourage people from voting for him.

It isn't necessarily deliberate. Color correction is a big problem... if you take a screenshot of something, the colors you see may not be the colors you see when you print. Likewise, if you scan, the colors may not be the same. Color correction is one of the main uses of Photoshop, but not everybody knows how to do it well or even that it might be necessary. It's possible that whoever worked on the photograph honestly did not know what Obama's skin tone was. Or even if it was deliberately manipulated that way, that doesn't mean that the higher-ups approved it... they might have simply not noticed. After all, it only takes one guy to make a change like that. I could do it in my sleep.

Of course, if they are deliberately doing that, it's pretty low... and pretty stupid. I doubt anybody who was going to support Obama would change his mind because his skin was apparently a little darker than they thought. Most racists don't care what your skin tone is, and if you're not a racist, it's irrelevant anyway.

It's 3 AM. Your children are in bed, asleep. Who do you want editing your pictures for you?

What do you guys think of the debacle in Florida and Michigan?
The rumor is that the republicans moved up Florida's primary, knowing full well that it would strip the democrats of their delegates in August. However, checking into this further, I see that democrats voted for the bill to move up the primary, too.

Anyway, it doesn't matter. What do the democrats need to do with the voters in Florida and Michigan?
Hillary won Michigan, but she also ran unopposed there. She won Florida as well, but she was the only one to visit the state because the other candidates knew the state wouldn't count.

Crist sounds really annoying when he's talking about how "the people's vote isn't getting counted, how dare them". Obama wasn't even on the ballot in Florida, was he?

I don't want that guy to be Vice President if McCain picks him (and wins, but we're a looong way from there).

It's very similar to one Mondale ran during his election.

Charlie Crist, some annoying looking white guy that's the govenor of Florida or something that has been talking or been the subject of talks of McCain's vp. Wexler is a much better Florida based-potician.

Why would he pick a left-wing guy as his running mate, though?
