HOUSTON--Hillary Clinton kicked off a primary election day that will shape the fate of her candidacy by greeting supporters at an elementary school that also is serving as a polling place in the Texas city's east end.

"We think we're going to do really well in Texas and Ohio," she said of the two big prizes in today's balloting, which also includes Vermont and Rhode Island. "I feel really good about today."

About 100 people waved signs along a rope line set up outside the J.P. Henderson elementary school. The neighborhood is diverse but has a Hispanic majority--a key supportive demographic for her in a state in which she and rival Barack Obama are running neck and neck.

As salsa music played from across the school grounds, vans and pickup trucks displaying signs for Clinton and Obama repeatedly drove past.

While the campaign attacks have grown more pointed in recent days as Clinton looks to try to upset Obama's winning streak, she said the nature of the race has been polite.

"This is one of the most civil and positive campaigns that I can remember," she said. "This is an incredibly positive one and an historic one. There is no doubt we're going to have a unified Democratic Party behind our nominee."

Clinton was clearly buoyed by a new Washington Post/ABC News poll that showed by a 2-to-1 ratio that Democratic voters want her to remain in the race, even if she wins only one of the two major states at stake today.

"Never underestimate the intelligence of the voters," she said.

"This is a really invigorating campaign and its just hit its stride," she said. "We're finally beginning to draw those contrasts and differences and that's when voters start to zero in and that's what's happening now."

Wow, just when you think the sh%t can't get any deeper! Hillary the great divider. What else would she say, I've run one of the most underhanded democratic primarys in recent memory? I must be in the minority of the 2-to-1 ratio of Democratic voters that want her to remain in the race.

Take your crooked politics and hit the road baby!!!


Hillary has not been tested either. So to say she would be the best to answer that 3am phone call is an opinion just like Obama's.
She has held no other office other than Senator right out of the White House because it was a northern state with a Democratic leanings where they could move and she could run for a contested seat. She didn't do any sensitive foreign relations work during Bill's terms. She had no National Security Clearance. She wasn't in the room making those calls. She is no more ready for this than Obama. She is even making McCain's argument for him, but McCain has not had to make those decisions either. He is a senator and was a pilot in Vietnam, not a commander. He is a decorated hero and deserves respect, but he didn't hold a command post.


Hillary clinton disgusts me. She makes me feel physically sick!

She divides people, Obama brings people together!


This this is all but over. Graciously step aside or look foolish, Hillary.


Hillary Clinton is one of the most polariing figures that this country has ever seen. She claims to have a lot of foreign policy experience which to me is a figment of her imagination. Her multiple personalities worries me. I can confess that when the primary is over, the democratic party will be extremely divided as a result of her negative campaigning. She is doing some of the dirty work for John MCCain at the expense of her own party. Continue Hillary, you are sinking your party's ship. The Republicans are salivating in the background.


I guess that does it. Election is over. None have experience being the president.


Give it up Obamaites. Negativity will not get you far.


YOU MIGHT BE AN IDIOT:-)

If you think Barack Obama with little or no experience would be better than Hillary Clinton with 35 years experience.

You Might Be An Idiot!

If you think that Obama with no experience can fix an economy on the verge of collapse better than Hillary Clinton. Whose ;-) husband (Bill Clinton) led the greatest economic expansion, and prosperity in American history.

You Might Be An Idiot!

If you think that Obama with no experience fighting for universal health care can get it for you better than Hillary Clinton. Who anticipated this current health care crisis back in 1993, and fought a pitched battle against overwhelming odds to get universal health care for all the American people.

You Might Be An Idiot!

If you think that Obama with no experience can manage, and get us out of two wars better than Hillary Clinton. Whose ;-) husband (Bill Clinton) went to war only when he was convinced that he absolutely had to. Then completed the mission in record time against a nuclear power. AND DID NOT LOSE THE LIFE OF A SINGLE AMERICAN SOLDIER. NOT ONE!

You Might Be An Idiot!

If you think that Obama with no experience saving the environment is better than Hillary Clinton. Whose ;-) husband (Bill Clinton) left office with the greatest amount of environmental cleanup, and protections in American history.

You Might Be An Idiot!

If you think that Obama with little or no education experience is better than Hillary Clinton. Whose ;-) husband (Bill Clinton) made higher education affordable for every American. And created higher job demand and starting salary's than they had ever been before or since.

You Might Be An Idiot!

If you think that Obama with no experience will be better than Hillary Clinton who spent 8 years at the right hand of President Bill Clinton. Who is already on record as one of the greatest Presidents in American history.

You Might Be An Idiot!

If you think that you can change the way Washington works with pretty speeches from Obama, rather than with the experience, and political expertise of two master politicians ON YOUR SIDE like Hillary and Bill Clinton..

You Might Be An Idiot!

If you think all those Republicans voting for Obama in the Democratic primaries, and caucuses are doing so because they think he is a stronger Democratic candidate than Hillary Clinton. :-)

Best regards

ms clinton said she would do well. i assume even if she loses ohio and TX and a poll said dems thought she should stay in race she will. my personal thought is that it will hurt the dem. party and will not help when they try to unite behind eventual nominee. she is hoping obviously that superdelegates will trump voice of dem voters. that will cause even more bad feeling and confusion. i do not see a possible happy end to this.


jacksmith:

How about something new?? You've posted the same trash for the past 2 weeks.


YOU MIGHT BE AN IDIOT!

If you think Hillary actually has 35 years of relevant experience. Can somebody please explain to me how everything she has done since the day she graduated law school counts as experience?!? And as for answering that phone, how is she qualified? The only thing she has ever been the leader of is her current campaign for the Presidency... which hasn't exactly been run in a competent or efficient way. And no, her husband's experience does not automatically get conferred to her because of their marriage... it's not like she had clearance or decision-making power in his administration.

YOU ALSO MIGHT BE AN IDIOT...

if you continue to cut and paste the exact same post onto every single message board in The Swamp for the past week.


Poor Rhode Island, back to not mattering to Sen. Clinton before they've even voted.


Jack Smith, you might be an idiot...excuse you are an idiot. If you think that Clinton singlehandedly led the expansion of the economy during his tenure you have no grasp of the complexity of the US economy. I don't recall Clinton enacting any grand tax cuts, spending initiative to stimulate the economy or master plansto propel the US into the computer age. What happened is a firm hand at the Federal Reserve (Greenspan) and the economy experiencing the efficiency gains from the realization of the computer age.
Also, Hillary has no more than 8 years experience being a Senator. She was the wife of an office holder.
Also, almost all of your posts talk about Hillary's husband. Who's running for office here? Those would be Bill's accomplishments, IF any of them were true. Mostly they're not.
You are a lying idiot.


Maggie/Jacksmith,
Bottom line is the She weasel and her Iranian gal pal will not cojoin the White House!
No matter how many law suits, no matter how many lies, distortions and all out slander-The Clinton's will not steal the nomination.
As more and more is revealed/exposed about Disbarred Bill and his illegal "fund raising", the taint will spread to Shrillary faster than the stink from a road killed Arkansas Skunk.


Already some African-Americans names are missing from registrations in Black neighborhood polling places. Just as was the case in Harlem during the primary election in New York. Hummmm


Hillary is a traitor to the Democratic party but encouraging division and plugging McCain's experience over Obama's. The only real experience Hillary has is hiding records, covering for Bill and cheating and lying to the American people. Thanks Hillary for dividing us once again

There is no, you night be. You are an idiot jacksmith!


Everyone read this! I am in Ohio, and several precincts have turned away "independents" and Republicans wanting to vote Democratic (yes, it's allowed), telling them they are out of ballots and Democratic Party members are a priority. This should have been anticipated and smells very fishy to me, since most independent voters are for Obama, etc. I think they should let ALL PERSONS turned away the right to vote tomorrow!!!!


Let the Obama supporters who trash Hilary form their own party--they will NOT trash democratic party chances to repair this country. Not without being called spoilers extraordinaire. The Hilary haters on here apparently are going to vote for McCain and the 8 to 12 billion per month Sen. Obama has done NOTHING to stop going to Iraq. Calling people idiots, calling Hilary the b word---shameful, people.
Rememger who stopped the black churches from burning in the civil rights south? Yup. bill clinton. With hilaryright there watching and learning. obama can't even NAME all the world leaders---Hilary knows them.

Gracie stay of the crack. Your clearly delusional.

Hillary is the one doing the mudslinging. Sen Obama not interupting Mrs Clinton during an answer in a debate, does not equates to not naming world leaders. Get your facts straight.

Crack kills!!!
