Have you noticed that he lifts his quotes from others? I have.

Do you want a plagiaristic Black male to represent you?

Think about it. No experience, and he copies others.

OMG black peoples oh noes!

WTF does his race have to do with anything.

He actually lifted one quote in one speech from his best friend, who shares a campaign speech writer with him.

In the past he said "to quote my friend..." before quoting him, but this time he didn't. He apologized later. He had permission to use the quote as well, in fact Patrick approached him about it. It was no big deal. They all have speech writers, and most of the words that sound similar are generic stuff.

Hillary lifted a direct line from Edwards though. The "if we can track who has overdue movies at blockbuster we can track illegal immigrants" line - directly from Edwards. And "Fired up and Ready to Go!" from Obama (McCain also picked this up) And a few others. Not a big deal. The blockbuster line was a bit specific and I think it's a pretty bad repetition, but it's not a huge deal. The other stuff is so fucking generic it's not plagiarism it's just generic shit. She did a "yes we will" instead of "yes we can" like Obama (it didn't take off)

"We can disagree without being disagreeable" about 15 million people must have said that in the past - including my high school theology teacher, and this book http://www.amazon.com/How-Disagree-W.../dp/0471157058 and apparently Obama plagiarized every single one of them when he said that line. At least according to the McCain campaign. Give me a break.

I've just been busy. It's not easy being a woman competing against a 'cult' following for Obama. Plus, Bill does have his needs, afterall.

Hey, Hillary. Tell us again about the crucial role you played in the Northern Ireland peace process. Only, the reaction from everyone else involved was: "Oh, Hillary? Yeah, she was there, I remember that. If you see her, can you ask her what happened to the teapot?"

Well, he inspired the Blackeyed Peas to record another song. That's a start, isn't it? And he even made Bob the Builder sound cool.

I think hc used to be darth but is now someone else.

Quote:
“I think that since we now know Sen. (John) McCain will be the nominee for the Republican Party, national security will be front and center in this election. We all know that. And I think it’s imperative that each of us be able to demonstrate we can cross the commander-in-chief threshold,” the New York senator told reporters crowded into an infant’s bedroom-sized hotel conference room in Washington.

“I believe that I’ve done that. Certainly, Sen. McCain has done that and you’ll have to ask Sen. Obama with respect to his candidacy,” she said.

Calling McCain, the presumptive GOP nominee a good friend and a “distinguished man with a great history of service to our country,” Clinton said, “Both of us will be on that stage having crossed that threshold. That is a critical criterion for the next Democratic nominee to deal with.”

...
She said she and McCain had traveled to Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan together as she repeated a line that surfaced from the campaign trail. She and McCain “bring a lifetime of experience to the campaign, Clinton said, while “Sen. Obama will bring a speech he gave in 2002,” stating his opposition to the Iraq war as an Illinois state senator.
Obama co sponsored a few bills with McCain but they got shut down. Right now the state of the election is looking bad for hillary unless the superdelegates overrule obama. Hillary is pretty old now, and she should have maybe run when all we had was dumb old Kerry. But if Obama wins in 2008 against McCain, she probably can't run again at 68. A man could, but the older she gets the more and more people will see her as fragile, adding onto the fact she's a woman. Also the appearance based stuff will get worse for her. Maybe she doesn't want Obama to win if he's the democratic nominee.

He wrote, petitioned, and argued until it passed one of the most crucial laws in criminal law while a state senator, requiring all confessions and interrogations to be taped. The cost is minimal and it provides protection for police (even though initially no one saw it that way) and the accused.

He co sponsored the Obama-Lugar act, and for that act to be successful he had to meet with tons of foriegn leaders and convince them to entrust AMERICA to safely dispose of all their expired WMDs. I mean that's fairly impressive.
