    Demoncratic party is the way to go. Change your party and come on over to the democratic side. Thanks.

    OhYea: Get a brain will you? dataclerk is just a name, honey-sweets. It do not tell my life story. It just a cover name like yours only sounds better.

    Don't think you're going to win many people to your opinion by saying a woman shoudn't be president.

    That's the hold point. People have a right to vote and a right to their opinions. You have yours and I have mind. Learn to agree to disagree. Learn not to get upset because of what another person opinion/comments is. Not everyone may like or love what you have to say. Think it over and become a better person than you are. I will pray for you on this change. Thankfully, we have the freedom to do that right here in the United States. There are some countries where you do not have certain rights. Where have you been?

    I never said I didn't like Hillary or McCain. They just don't fit the "glove." Obama will fit the "glove" perfectly. :)

    bullet656: Well, bullet, my grit&grim person, why are you embarrassed of me. Of course I am for Obama. Get a life, read a book. Obama is my first choice. McCain is really too old. An a woman like Hillary needs to know her place. You should know that by now. :) A woman should not be running the United States, I assure you kitty-kat. That's a job for Obama a man that handle all situations including yours. :)

    OhYea: Thank for coming on board for Obama. You are great for doing that. Thanks again.
    dataclerk, do not need to check themselves out,sweet-thang. You are already doing that. You must be jealous of me. lol lol

    I'm an obama supporter. If you are serious than I am embarrassed that you are too. You seriously think that McCain is too old and won't vote for Hillary b/c she's a woman? Why does that matter? There's plenty of other reasons not to like these people. Don't think you're going to win many people to your opinion by saying a woman shoudn't be president.

    dataclerk - It's becoming apparent why you are a dataclerk.

    dataclerk, check yourself here. Most of our economic problems were created by a Demoncratic Congress who was going to get us out of Iraq. BO won't get us out either. Congress doesn't have the will to get us out and the President doesn't have the power to get us out.
