    Obama and Hillary in CIVIL WAR !

    http://www.newsmax.com/insidecover/Obama_Hillary_Civil_War/2008/03/06/78521.html?s=al&promo_code=46B9-1

    With Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton's decision to stay in the Democratic race to the bitter end, she has signaled a delegate fight all the way to the party's convention in Denver this August.

    Both candidates appear in something of a stalemate. Political strategists have concluded that Clinton cannot overcome Sen. Barack Obama's pledged delegate lead by winning additional primaries.

    And despite his lead in electoral and delegate wins, Obama cannot seal his nomination without the support of the party's superdelegates.

    Clinton's decision, after winning in Texas, Ohio and Rhode Island this week that she would not capitulate has opened up the first skirmishes in a looming Democratic civil war.

    Already the intraparty battle -- described by the Boston Globe as "trench warfare" -- has cost the Democrats a whopping $275 million. The war has no end in sight and is shaping up to be a take-no-prisoner's battle.

    Consider:

    Cash: Both sides are now swimming with the ammunition that politicians need to wage war. Obama announced this week that he raised a stunning $55 million in February. Clinton hasn't matched those numbers, but she is playing catch-up. Since Tuesday, she raked in a cool $3 million.

    'Monster' Hillary: Obama foreign policy aide Samantha Power told Britain's Scotsman that Clinton is "a monster . . . she is stooping to anything" and described her circle as being on the "warpath."

    Ken Starr: Clinton's campaign lashed out at Obama Thursday, accusing him of becoming another "Ken Starr" because he promised to be more criticial of his opponent. The Obama campaign has complained Clinton has dragged her feat in releasing her tax returns and her documents as first lady.

    Florida and Michigan. Both the Obama and Clinton camps are deadlocked on the matter of the Florida and Michigan delegates. Party Chairman Howard Dean says he wants a new vote in those states but he won't use party money to pay for it. That benefits Obama, because Clinton would have likely won those states in a re-vote. If Dean and the Obama can keep the current slate of Florida and Michigan delegates off the convention floor, Clinton's position is further undermined.

    Black Revolt: Influential African-Americans like Donna Brazile, Al Sharpton and former Virginia Gov. Douglas Wilder are warning that the Democratic Party may be fractured and crippled if it does not abide by the will of the pledged delegates in picking the nominee.

    Meanwhile, the fraternal struggle among Democrats may be netting Republicans support.

    Former Bush strategist Karl Rove notes Thursday in The Wall Street Journal "the interesting electoral phenomenon is the emergence of the 'McCainicrats' -- Democrats backing Mr. McCain."

    Rove continued: "In three recent polls, (Fox, LA Times/Bloomberg and Gallup), almost twice as many Democrats support Mr. McCain as Republicans support Mr. Obama. Three times as many Democrats support Mr. McCain as Republicans back Mrs. Clinton."

    • "i was refering to the Myron Cope guy"

      Gotcha Bear, my misunderstanding! Myron was one of the best color play by play announcers in football.

      When you see a terrible towel flying it was because of Myron's inventivness.

    • "I suspect that you know full well that Rove, along with several of W's insiders leaked the information as to Plames CIA status."

      If suspicion of an "alleged crime" were made a criminal offense then many of us would be in trouble or worse yet in prison.

      The problem Liberals have is decifering truth from fantasy. In a Liberals delusional world (of their making) they place their opponents in a category that they refuse to place their delusional fraternal Liberal brothers.

      In the Liberal World they make up delusional events which are totally false but it gives them warm fuzzies which amplifies their illogic.

      Again, being very redundent, I must point out for the umpteenth time that in order for a Liberal to win an argument he MUST pervert truth and/or name call. This makes the Liberal believe that he's won the debate.

      But I digress; Rove in no way broke any law and your assesrtion to the contrary is proof positive that you're as delusional as most of your cohorts and contemporaries.

    • RE: that you think that OJ killed Goldman and Nicole Simpson notwithstanding the jury's verdict.

      >>and your verdict...opinion is what alph????

      >> not guilty???

    • Tell me, Eggs is it the lack of an indictmtent or lack of a conviction. Somehow I suspect that you think that OJ killed Goldman and Nicole Simpson notwithstanding the jury's verdict.

      As for the decision to prosecute or not to prosecute either you know little about the process and prosecutorial discretion or being purposefully obtuse.

      I suspect that you know full well that Rove, along with several of W's insiders leaked the information as to Plames CIA status. [Although, your reactionary cohort Bear seems to be playing another version of the outing apologists' defense.] Guess you are guilty of what you label as Liberal behavoir.

      I seldom make the mistake of thinking the extremeists on either the Left or the Right are terribly fair or truthful. I can see just how extreme you are in this instance. Thanks for the revelation.

    • "On July 11, 2006, Robert Novak, "a conservative columnist for the Chicago Sun-Times newspaper, admitted publicly for the first time that Mr Rove, a close adviser to George Bush, had been one of his sources for a story outing CIA agent Valerie Plame," David Fickling reported in the Guardian Unlimited (UK). "Publicly naming a CIA operative is a criminal offence in the US."

      If that were a true and accurate statement Rove would have been prosecuted for the "alleged crime"

      http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/13018897/

      Since Rove was never prosecuted and found guilty the "alleged" comments then the accusations are moot and unfounded.

      I thought Liberals were for fairness and truthfullness? Apparently attempting to smear and slander innocents is justified by a Liberal when it's made against a Republican.
