2/10    I like Woz, and I like iWoz, but let me tell ya, no one worships
        him because he has the charisma of an highly functioning
        Autistic person. Meanwhile, everyone worships Jobs because
        he's better looking and does an amazing job promoting himself
        as God. I guess this is not the first time in history. Case in
        point, Caesar, Napolean, GWB, etc. Why is it that people

11/2    California Uber Alles is such a great song
        \_ Yes, and it was written about Jerry Brown. I was thinking this
           as I cast my vote for Meg Whitman. I am independent, but I
           typically vote Democrat (e.g., I voted for Boxer). However, I
           can't believe we elected this retread.
           \_ You voted for the billionaire that ran HP into the ground

2/20    Ok serious question, NOT political.  This is straight up procedural.
        Has it been declared that we didn't find WMD in iraq? (think so).
        So why did we go into iraq (what was the gain), and if nobody really
        knows, why is nobody looking for the reason?
        \_ Political stability, military strategy (Iran), and to prevent
           Saddam from financing terrorism.

8/5     Regarding NKorea relesing the journalists, here's what I think the
        actual deal between Kim and Obama is:
        - Both agree that Kim needs to save, or gain, face to pave the way for
          his son's succession and for NK's stability.
        - Both agree that Obama doesn't like losing face by publicly

4/27    "Obama the first Asian-American president?"
        Just like the way Clinton was the first African-American president.
        \_ Two wars, a banking, housing, and general economic crisis, a truly
           massive deficit, and now, Swine Flu.  Has any president except for
           Lincoln and Roosevelt faced worse?

Go to Google News Candidates Donate to Superdelegates By STEPHEN OHLEMACHER - 2 days ago WASHINGTON (AP) -- Campaign committees controlled by Sens. Barack Obama and Hillary Rodham Clinton have donated at least $890,000 to the campaigns of superdelegates, according to a report by a group that tracks money in politics. Obama donated the largest amount, about $694,000, to those campaigns in the past three years, according to the nonpartisan Center for Responsive Politics. Both campaigns are furiously lobbying for support among the Democratic Party's nearly 800 superdelegates, who will be free to support whomever they choose at the convention, regardless of the outcome of the primaries. Superdelegates include all Democratic members of Congress, Democratic governors and other party officials. If the candidates continue to split delegates in the primaries, superdelegates could decide the nominee. "People put a lot of trust in their elected officials to represent them," said Massie Ritsch, spokesman for the Center for Responsive Politics. "It would be particularly unpalatable if money seemed to be a factor in who ultimately got the nomination." On Thursday, the delegate count stood at 1,276 for Obama and 1,220 for Clinton after the Democratic National Committee released an updated list of superdelegates that dropped supporters of both candidates. Atlanta Mayor Shirley Franklin, an Obama supporter, is no longer a superdelegate because she left her position with National Conference of Democratic Mayors. Tom Lantos of California, who died Monday, also was removed from the list. Spokesmen for Obama and Clinton said donations were not used to gain endorsements from superdelegates. "Obviously, Senator Obama has fought hard for the Democratic Party, donating to Democratic candidates, raising money for Democratic candidates and traveling to events to help build the party all over the country," Obama campaign spokesman Bill Burton said. The study tracked donations received by members of Congress from the candidates' leadership PACs and from their candidate committees. It tracked donations made to governors by examining the presidential candidates' expenditures. Among the findings: _ Since 2005, Obama's committees gave $228,000 to superdelegates who have endorsed him, $363,900 to those who were still undecided, and $102,400 to those who have endorsed Clinton.
