    Hillary should reveal her tax returns and other papers. She has shown herself to be deceitful, power-hungry and out of control–not qualities for a leader.

    I think that Mrs. Clinton shoud reveal her tax returns to prove her transparency. The American people have a right to know that they can trust her especially since there has been a scandal in her political campaign for the Senate in NY(with the person who reimburse monies to persons that contributed)

    Villery is an empty bucket that makes a LOT of noise. She carries an air of inevitability around her to mask her emptiness but it still shows through with her often sudden and unpredictable outbursts. Just look at how her campaign is run, different messages riddled with various versions of her. One can tell she doesn’t have a stand of her own and she is only dancing to the tune of Bill and her advisers much like our current president.

    Please start a petition to expeditiously settle the dispute in Florida and Michigan fairly by splitting the delegates 50/50. A validated re-vote is near impossible, especially in Florida.

    I want to thank everyone who signed the petition to have Clinton tax returns released to the general public, regardless who they support! At first, I thought it was in defense of transparency from our would-be leaders, but now, with Geraldine Ferraro’s comments, I can see this transparency issue is just the tip of the iceberg. Not only to we have to expose backroom closet financial shady dealings, we also have to expose closet racism as well. Ferraro’s remarks are way out of line, and invite division in the party, in the country and in the world.This is precisely why I support Obama – to take back our country and all the ideals it was founded for, to take back our political party and all the old school good ol’ party machines! Too bad Geraldine Ferraro didn’t know this Asian-American voter voted for Obama without even considering his color ! I just considered his good judgement, his good ideas, and common sense. The Democratic National Committee needs to think about what kind of candidate, what kind of party, and what kind of country we really need. COME ON EVERYONE – SIGN THE PETITION FOR FAIR PLAY, AND LET’S TAKE BACK OUR COUNTRY!!

    YES, we want to see the tax returns to verify they are clean and up to snuff BEFORE the next primary state votes…NOT AFTER! What good are they then?

    Also, if she is wants to continue to rant and rave about her grand experience, then don’t just spout words Mrs. Clinton, turn over the First Lady records (ALL OF THEM!) and let Americans judge for themselves about your experience. She received them a full month before the Ohio debate–that crap about a process & it takes time was just stall tactics. WHY? Maybe she doesn’t want us to see the little experience she really has…or perhaps she really doesn’t want Americans to see who was coming and going to visit her at the White House…….hmmm, again WHY?

    Mrs. Clinton: You can’t demand other candidates speak publicly about questions the public has about them and then hide yours in a locked box without creating a growing suspicion about you and what the records may contain.

    You are literally destroying the Democratic Party with your negative, “Voter Terrorist Attacks” and for that I will NEVER vote for you. Your “hint” that Obama would run on the ticket with you (as VP no less—HA HA HA) was nothing but a pathetic, desperate attempt to steal undecided voters votes from Obama.

    OBAMA FOR PRESIDENT! A candidate who shows integrity, leadership, class, great unity & inspiring skills to pull this country up by its bootstraps, boost the economy and repair years of corrupt politics and a poor American reputation. Just ask the millions of foreign citizens from all over the world who are rooting for Obama to be our next President of the United States!

    – The petition must be on more than Hillary’s tax returns. For one, we should also be requesting Bill’s tax returns. I am sure that

    they planned her presidency a long time ago. So I am sure they would be smart enough to put as much as under Bill’s name as can be

    possible. Also, a lot of undisclosed documents are being held under Bill Clinton’s orders. We MUST request these as well since if

    there is nothing to hide then why not disclose them. Also, Hillary’s visitor logs. WHo and why they met. Lastly, who made the

    contributions for Bill’s presidential library. Important since this will show if any favors, such as pardons, were connected to

    these contributions.

    The secrecy and paranoia endure too. Releasing tax returns is routine for a presidential candidate. Barack Obama did it some time back. The Clintons still haven’t – and say they won’t for more than another month. Why? They have no explanation. They seem affronted by the question.

    This is the appropriate time (overdue for Hillary Clinton) to supply this information. Ability to handle one’s own finances surely speaks to one’s ability to handle those of an entire nation – especially one under severe financial duress. It also says something about methods, an important item which voters will mark with * (asterisk)

    Everything about the Clintons is Business; which means they’ll sell their souls to the devil to get whatever they are after. Forget about Mrs. clinton releasing her tax return anytime soon; if not only after the elections. What to think of a woman that has been repeatedly cheated on, dragged in dirt , humiliated in public but has vowed to stick by the very man that has brought disgrace on an entire nation? Do not give me the “love” bull shit!

    Hillary is bordering on hilarity, and just embarrassing herself. Go away, it’s time to get out of the race. The American people are sick of living in the past. Barack is showing us the future, and we will have him as president and no other. Goodbye, and have a nice sleazy rest of your life with Bill!

    Jason Kennedy said:

    Senator Clinton,
    It is time to be tranparent. As Americans we put high value on accountability and we want you to be accountable to us. Please release your returns and put us all at ease that you are not a fraud. There is one way to end the criticism, show us the page and we’ll stop. Until then, we will be that nagging pest that won’t ever go away becuause we can’t stand a thief.

    Mr Barack Hussein Obama needs to forget all tax returs , forget canadian nafta, forget about rezko. Now time to focus on ecomomy, and explain about change and hope. Reach out voters not the speeches…..

    About MI and FL, dont re-do primary , Hillary will get more votes than it was in January in both states. Take FL as it was Jan 29 result 50% Hillary and 33% Obama. ASK MI to take Hilary 55% and ask uncommitted 40% for Obama.

    PrivateVoid, it’s the law that she releases those returns to run for president. All candidates have to do it. What we don’t need is a candidate with a secret at the top of our ticket. Democrats have a real chance at getting the White House back and we need to make sure the candidate we choose doesn’t have a financial skeleton in her closet. We don’t need another 8 years of Bush via John “Hothead” McCain.

    Julie Adams said:

    We need your records to make an informed decision about your candidacy, Mrs. Clinton. It’s VERY important to all of us that we have a clear idea of exactly where your income and support have come from. This is an ethics issue, not only in how willing you are to allow THE FACTS to be known, but also as a check for any undue inflluence your financial support may demand. Senator Obama has been completely transparent and forthcoming with his records — WHERE ARE YOURS???

    I would also need to see Mrs. Clinton’s scheduling records from her time as FIRST LADY in the white house, to determine exactly what kind of “experience” she has actually had. Thank you.

    PrivateVoid said:

    I assume all of the people making this demand have posted their tax return so the world can see it; right?

    The Clintons are a disgrace to humanity. They have stumped so low just for personal glory. I am ashamed to say that I once was
    a Clintons supporter. HRC act like she cares about people, but if she really did, she would have dropped out a long time ago. She’s bringing the democratic party down with her. She is waiting to get more delegates so that the superdelegates cast their votes in her favor. What she doesnt care is that the MATH is not in her favor. So, the superdelegates will have no choice to give the nomination to Obama, who earned it. HRC is such a fraud. I cant wait to get her off the race already so that we can move on and beat McCain. Mccain is another Bush.

You claim to know what the little guy goes through. Give me a break. Let’s see your multi-million dollar secrets NOW. You are sour grapes and embarrass so many. TAX RETURNS NOW.

    No more secrecy will be tolerated.
    No more politics as usual.
    No more big mean bullying. You have proven yourself as tough, but have now crossed over into evil.

    In addition to Hillary Clinton’s tax returns (not just this year’s returns), she needs to provide the White House visitor log that has been asked of her repeatedly that shows who came to see her and why. This has to do with her claim of 35 years of experience.

    As a former staunch supporter of Hillary Clinton in the ’90s, I could never see myself voting for someone that has demonstrated a bipolar disorder. She is nuts and I could never trust her answering the phone not just at 3am, but at any hour of the day.

    Mrs.Clinton doesn’t want you or anyone else to know how she and her husband made their millions. She doesn’t also want you to know about the lawsuit against them. Peter Paul , a man who helped Hillary financially to get her senate seat, is suing the Clintons.

    Greg said:
    March 8, 2008 at 8:35 pm

    I agree that she should release the records but let’s be careful that she’s not just using this as a smoke screen. That is she keeps them hidden, everyone makes a big stink of it, then she releases them and there’s nothing notable in them. Then she counter attacks by saying the Obama campaign had nothing better to offer
    than quibble over meanlingless tax returns.

    I do want to see those returns but just be careful of this campaign that has been backed into a corner with relentless delegate math. You know how dangerous cornered animals are and Hillary is the most dangerous kind of political animal you can imagine.

    Jack Paulson said:

    We the People deserve an administration whom we can TRUST. So many of us have lost faith in our government due to the corruption under the current administration. We deserve to have all this information disclosed, if fact we demand that it be disclosed. It is our right to know if any of our elected officials are beholden to special interests etc. To be honest, it doesn’t look good if she doesn’t release these documents. It appears to the public as though she does have somethings damaging to hide. If there’s nothing to hide, why resist so strongly?
