Why the hell did Carol get the nod?

Obama smokes cigarettes - If he doesn't care about his own health, how much will he care about ours?

I am thrilled The Caucus chose to endorse Obama. I was an early voter & used the endorsement card throughout. I was very pleased to recognize some of the Judges' names from the christmas party and political clubs. I have needed these face-to-face contacts ever since I came to Texas 26 yrs ago - and been whelmed-over by needing to make choices between so many unknowns. It was like facing an important exam & not being able to study for it. I think that's why so few people vote in non-presidential years.

I am looking forward to my precinct caucus Tuesday evening. In fact I was here on the site to see if there were any specific suggestions for presenting the vanquished part of ENDA for the Transgendered people as preliminary legislation.
If Obama gets the nomination, hopefully that part of ENDA will be passed within the next four years; if not it's a continuing omission.

I envision a ground swell of The Caucus folks hitting their precincts with the same idea of completing ENDA.

Why did the GLBT endorse Obama? I would NEVER vote for that man! GO HILLARY! I am a democrate all the way, yet if Hillary loses, I will switch my vote and go with John McCane, as will many of my Hillary Clinton supporters! No way will any of us vote for that Obama muslum!

VOTE FOR HILLARY! Gay people need to vote for Hillary! Obama is a crook and has no experience! I agree with the other person who posted a response. If Hillary loses, I also will vote for John McCane. No way will I also vote for Obama. I also have heard that many people will turn away from the Democratic Party and vote for McCane if Hillary loses.

My vote goes for Hillary Clinton. I am disspointed to see the GLBT endorses Obama. Shame on you! Hillary is the best and only candidate. I agree with the others, I also will vote for McCane if Hillary loses.
