ANOTHER MILESTONE


Another milestone has been etched in US history as the death
toll in Iraq has reached the 4,000 mark since the beginning of
the war 5 years ago. A sad reminder to this Ill conceived and
completely miscalculated period in US history.

Bush Monday expresses his sympathy to the families of the 4000
Americans who lost there lives, promising that they will not have died in vain.

Four US soldiers lost there life sunday when they were killed
by a roadside bomb....

McCain continues his pro Bush doctrine of occupation an totes
another 100 years of US occupation.......

The United States has sadly lost it's way, led down a blind alley
by republican adventurism. (CORNER TALK REPORT)

A BREACH OF PRIVACY

Can we just believe the recent invasion of Obama's passport file
is just the antic's of some curios contract employee or is there something
else going on here.

In 1991 the then-Gov. Bill Clinton’s passport file was compromised while he
waged a campaign for the White House against President George H. Bush.

The state Dept. announced that Mr. Obama's passport file had been
accessed three times over the pass 3 month by curious contract
employees.

The first breach, being reported took place on Jan 8, shortly after Obama
defeated Sen. Hillary Clinton (D-N--.Y.) in the Iowa Caucus.
Again it was tapped on Feb. 21, and again on March 14.

The Obama camp is demanding to know who opened Mr. Obama's
file and to get to the bottom of who is responsible for this outrageous
breach of security and privacy. But a senior State Department official
continues to echo there was no political or malicious intent.
just the antics of the "curious".

This latest new comes on the heels O Mr. Obama's historic speech
on race in America which received 1.6 million clicks over on the youtube
site.

CLOSET RACISM

Whats the matter with these people? It's seems to disturb them when someone comes along an has the intelligence that the Senator from Illinois displays. For he's one of the or the brightest that has come out of there Ivy League schools, but because he is black they want to tear him down...

It only points to the closet racism that still prevails in this country. Yes sexism exist an will continue to exist, but know one has to remind people of color the position they have had to endure since the birth of the country....

The former congress woman Geraldine Ferraro an one time vice presidential hopeful needs to climb back into a hole and get a life after her verbal remarks, and should have know room
in the current political agenda.

Hillary Clinton on the other hand needs to sort out her house if she wants to stay in this race with some dignity. All should be held to the same standard........(CORNER TALK REPORT)

NUBITOONZ by Butch Leake

OBAMA TAKES MISSISSIPPI

Senator Barack Obama (D-ILL) wins Tuesday Mississippi Primary over
Hillary Clinton (D-NY). Mississippi had 33 pledged delegates, which
will be allocated proportionally.

Obama wins with overwhelming support from African American voters.
They came out for him over Clinton 91-9 percent.

Mississippi white voters overwhelmingly back the New york Senator
71-21 percent. Mississippi along with neighboring Alabama and
Clinton's former home state Arkansas are racially Polarized states.

Obama also finished first in the Texas Democratic caucuses. That race
wasn't called until Tuesday night.

Obama will get the most delegates out of that race even though
Clinton won the primary. Two thirds of the states 193 delegates were
at stake, a third of that was decided by the caucuses......(CORNER TALK REPORT)

POLITICAL SHELL GAME

Clinton offers Obama the 2nd of the bill in the race for the
presidency. A case of someone offering a job in a house they
don't own. It seems the Clinton's have forgot that they are behind
in the popular vote and in delegates.

Saturday Obama smash Clinton in the Wyoming Caucasus 61 to 38 percent....

"I want everybody to be absolutely clear," he said. "I'm not running for vice president. I'm running for president of the United States of America."

"This kind of gamesmanship, talking about me as VP but not ready for commander-in-chief, that's exactly the kind of doublespeak, double-talk that Washington is very good at," Obama added.

The Illinois senator's campaign clearly recognizes its rival benefits from the increased speculation of a joint ticket.

"They understand that this is a way for the Clinton campaign to play some politics here," "If you suggest to voters, who might have some question about Barack Obama's experience, but they like his message of hope and change, that they could have both, and that maybe he could get eight years of seasoning, that's the suggestion here."

The Clinton's are very aware of the math In this process an seem to be playing a shell game with the voters. Estimates are now that Obama leads Clinton 1,553 to 1,438 in delegates. This can all fall down to the super delegates which is the Clinton's goal for
hopeful bail out.... (CORNER TALK REPORT)

SUPER TUESDAY 2


Senator Hillary Clinton (D-NY) has managed a come back with wins in Ohio, Rhode Island and Texas Primaries. Slowing down the the momentum of Senator Barack Obama (D-Ill).
Both contenders still fall short of the 2,025 delegates needed to secure the parties nomination for the run to the White House in November with Obama
leading in delegates 1,451 to Clintons 1,365.

Obama did well among African- American voters, young folks and the well educated. But he didn’t win over enough Latino voters in Texas or older voters in Ohio. Clinton trumped him by getting more late deciders in both states.

The real measurement last night ... was not whether Hillary Clinton could win Ohio or Texas," said Sen. John Kerry, an Obama supporter. "It's whether she wins by a large enough margin to win the nomination. She has to win by a very big number for the math to work over the course of the next week."

'Texas Two-Step'

Texas' results may not be as easy to measure as counting votes, either.

In what pundits have been calling the "Texas Two-Step," the state's Democratic Party hosts both a primary election, in which 126 delegates are awarded, and a post-election caucus in which another 67 are handed out.

It's possible for the loser of the primary to win more delegates with a strong showing in the caucuses.

In the Republican camp Senator John McCain (R-ARIZ) seals the GOP nod for
nomination Huckabee drops out of the race.......(CORNER TALK REPORT)
