    It’s laughable that someone with less public service, is running against someone who has an international relations degree, & taught constitutional law and thinks that being a lodger at the White House is more experience.

    Hillary has name recognition on par with McDonald’s, and has still had to fight for her political life. Obama has shown he can gain support from working families, right down to their donations. Even running against Obama’s high road campaign she has had the poor judgment to approve “kitchen sink” tactics of desperation.

    If the way these Candidates run their campaign is any measure, there should be no doubt that Barack Obama is the most fitting candidate to send forth in November. Otherwise, the Hillary campaign looks more ill prepared to handle the Republican than the John Kerry team, and we see where that got us.

    Senator Clinton,

    Release your tax returns today. What you have done in the past does not count.

    How can you claim to be ready on day 1 in the Whitehouse when you can’t even pick up the phone and call your tax accountant to produce copies of your taxes in a timely manner?

    You are making a grave mistake to think American’s are stupid enough to accept your excuses.

    Its plain shocking that she forced someone else to release their’s in the past but is playing games when she has been called out on the very same thing.

    I would like to see those tax returns. How can you say you believe in a transparent government when you are hiding where your wealth comes from? I suspect she’s hiding things from America, SHAME on YOU HILLary Clinton!

    I’d also like to see her papers released when she was First Lady, from the media it seems like she was quite the unfriendly sort of gal, maybe that’s why she won’t release them.

    Senator Clinton:

    Please release your tax information. It will remove any doubt about questionable financial support being given to your campaign–and your unwillingness to release the information in a timely fashion just increases speculation that there IS questionable financial support.

    Hillary, please release the tax returns. If you cannot get this done on time (you are so late already) how can you be “Ready on day One” to run this country?

    What are you hiding? Release the tax returns already. If you are unable to run a copy machine…what makes my think you can run a country.

    I for one wants obama to get down and dirty. anyone who thinks billary will not do the same is living in la la land.

    Fighting hard in a campaign is one thing, fighting dirty, sleazy and dishonest is quite a different thing.

    one is admirable, the other despicable. if she gets the nomination i will NOT vote for her – ute levi (and i am a democrat)

    If Hillary wins this nomination.. I will not vote for the democratic party. She’s trying to win by all desperate means.
