I am So Proud of Hillary and Barack!!!!


THIS CNN 2008 debate was IT! Both people are equal to the task. I am voting with pride, for Hillary or Barack. The champion's of this long, long road to the White House...Hillary Clinton AND Barack Obama. The winner's of this national roller coaster ride...US!

This reflection of the Democratic Party is the best I've seen, the most inspiring I've heard and a party I just might want to return to completely.

After 20 plus years, I might be able to find a place among the new Democratic Party. Hard problem. I don't mind reminding the new President that I'm here. That I am not shy about letting them know I heard every word. That I am ready to help our country restore, that I am up to task of all of the challenges. Hope does spring eternal! What a feeling!

CNN's Bill Schneider - Hillary 'just made an effective argument against John McCain.'

NBC News' Chuck Todd - Hillary 'had a couple of very good moments on health care and the economy.'

New Republic's Michael Crowley - 'The subject of health care always brings out a formidable passion and policy fluency in Hillary.' "So much of the time politicians just seem to be going through the motions when debating the issues.

ABC News' Rick Klein - Hillary 'sounds calm, in charge, deliberate.' [ABC News, Political Radar, 2/21/08]

BARACK The debate reviews are in...By Sam Graham-Felsen - February 21, 2008 Go to site for more...

MSNBC (Jonathan Alter): Obama won.
Hotline – On Call: …Barack Obama wins the night -- and the momentum in his direction continues.

Atlantic (Marc Ambinder): … The Debate Belongs To Obama LINK

TIME (Mark Halperin): Mark Halperin’s Grades: Obama B+, Clinton B

NBC (Chuck Todd) : …Obama set the tone LINK

CNN (Donna Brazile): …And look, Barack Obama tonight was exceptional- he was presidential, he was poised, he was calm. He had the poetry, but he also had the prose. He put the substance ahead of, you know, perhaps some of the rhetorical flourishes that he's capable of giving. He was good; so, you can’t deny him that.

CNN (Gloria Borger): …Tonight, you saw Barack Obama as a very credible commander in chief.

Politico (Ben Smith): Obama has come prepared to talk about substance, and offers detailed personal anecdotes, not more abstract oration, for most of his opening statement, before pivoting to the question of who can unify the country to get it done. LINK

CNN (David Gergen): … Barack Obama is dramatically better as a debater than he was a few months ago. I thought he was excellent.
