    So, you are campaigning for "Change We Need". All I can say is be careful what you ask for - as it may not be the change you are wanting. Obama has no track record and he voted "present" while in the senate, instead of yes or no. Don't take my word for it, check this out yourself: www.realclearpolitics.com/articles/2007/02/the_everpresent_obama.html

    umm wow. shut up! i think she is doing a great thing! she may be a celebrity, actress, or whatever else you want to call her. but.. she is a US citizen! not just some dimwhit celebrity. and she does have an opinion. she can do whatever she wants. even if that means joining the Change We Need Tour. heck if i could, i would join her! everyone has their own "political veiws" but don't bash her for really getting out there and supporting hers! when is the last time you stood up for what you really believe in huh?

    Courttcourtt, you are right that people are entitled to their opinion. In light of that, I am surprised that you would tell me to shut up. I am also entitled to my opinion even if it differs from yours.

    I was totally shocked to see dear Marlena has choosen to go to the Obama side; I always thought she was pretty smart and now I see she's just the opposite; hey Marlena why don't you get on the internet and search ACORN, you might find some pretty interesting things you and probably not a lot of other people know about your dear boy; take a look; I agree with Mamma_Head; be careful what you ask for because if the little skinny man gets into the big house on PA Ave., this country is in for a terrible chanage; you and others need to really look into this nominee more carefully

    To all of you that feel it nessecary to put down Deidre Hall for choosing to vote for Obama for president,she is over 18 yrs.of age , and a citizen of the US, which last time I checked, makes it her right to vote for whomever she likes. Furthermore, if she wants to speak in support of him and help with his campain, that is also her right. Deidre, YOU GO GIRL!!!
