« Harlem Reacts to Gov. Paterson's Same Sex Marriage Directive | Main | Some Thoughts on Obama's Speech »

03 June 2008



On one level, I'm surprised that I'm the first person commenting. On another level, given much of the ugliness on the blogs on this election, it's not surprising that no one wants to comment when they are reminded to be gracious winners. That is in short supply tonight.

I am a Clinton supporter but will be gladly casting my vote for Barack Obama. This is an historic moment and I am glad to be part of it. Obama is a terrific candidate and will make an excellent president. He will lead our nation into the 21st century an away from the destructive policies of the Bush years.

Congratulations to Barack.


Yeah. Bammas are suddenly real quiet.

IN YOUR FACE!!!! lol

GREAT Day in History and a message to Black Youth, regardless of what... anything is possible.


Nova you are right. On the night Obama wins the nomination, it's crickets from the ObamaNation. I have my own theories for that, but, that is for another night.

I'm also a Clinton voter and congratulate Barack and Michelle Obama on their win and victory. This was a remarkable campaign and I wish them the best of luck.


What isn't surprising is that you guys couldn't resist some last few digs at Obama supporters.

But anyway I am proud that he has clinched and I certainly hope the democrats are able to solve their family dysfunction and he is able to be successful come November.


This primary season was on for the record books, tonight was historic. . . and it made me proud to be an American.

I have been waiting for this for quite some time. . .since 2004 when Obama gave his speech in Boston at the DNC. I am looking forward to the debates with John McCain.

This was an incredible campaign. I am so proud to be an American and a black man. This is wonderful.

Picking up on what ATL Kid said, I am also a Clinton supporter. I am happy to vote for the Democratic nominee.

This is a happy, blessed evening! I never thought I would see the day a black man would be nominated for president! Congratulations!


DFS, I was not trying to be rude. I was being very honest. Compared to other recent threads, the relative silence is very surprising. But since you are extending the olive branch, I'll apologize if my words offended. Hopefully you will accept it. IMHO, This is a great night for America. This election is retoring confidence in America, so many people across the world are watching.

Gawd, that was a terrific speech. Obama is probably the most skilled speech maker since Reagan.

DFS makes a very good point. Let's focus on Obama and those who are here to congratulate his historic win. As far as the usual suspects, maybe they are celebrating with a glass of wine or at a watch party.

Obama ran a very strong campaign. He deserves our respect and has inspired many voters. As Iemmathu said, this primary season will be one for the record books.


What a wonderful night.; IO never thought I would see this.


Although I am a diehard Clinton supporter it is amazing to see that a black man has a real chance at becoming president of this country. This would be a step in the right direction. I am voting for Obama 08 and I hope Clinton will be in his cabinet preferably as Secretary of State.


'Bout time! I don't want HillBilly 500 ft. near this administration let alone have her as a possible VP.


I feel just the opposite of Broke....I hope Obama can place Hillary in a meaningful role in his run for the presidency.

whether that be as VP or a cabinet role, etc.

From CNN:

"[Obama was] telling supporters at his victory rally in St. Paul, Minnesota, that the country and the party "are better off because of her." He added that Clinton has "an unyielding desire to improve the lives of ordinary Americans, no matter how difficult the fight may be."

I agree....


I'm a big supporter of old Hills but even I have to confess it was cool to see him get the nod. I'll vote for him if that's what it takes to keep the GOP out of there.

BROKE FF is correct and your comments are the principal reason why Obama will have such a difficult time uniting this party. Obama clinches the nomination and you have nothing good to say about your candidate and nothing but pathetic Clinton hate.

Oh, and let this be the last time you are told not to use profanity or graphic language on this board. Re Matt SANCHEZ.

RENE Your attitude is pathetic. This thread is about Obama clinching victory. You candidate has WON and you are still obsessed with Clinton.

This is your third comment and your third off-topic Clinton rant. Stay on topic and make it your last.
