Pillorying dignity by Thanos Kalamidas
A boy who still spends most of his time going to school and a girl still playing with dolls were sexually active; so active so the girl was taking the pill and because she forgot to take it a few days she became pregnant.

If a film starring Robert De Niro, Christopher Walken and Meryl Streep was released today expectations would be astronomical, but 30 years ago two of the names were barely known.

Obama Challenges Clinton on Leadership

Barack Obama has knocked down one of the three tent poles of Hillary Clinton‘s campaign for president, surging ahead of her as the candidate Democrats see as most likely to win in November. He’s challenging her on leadership as well, leaving only experience as a clear Clinton advantage in a recent poll.

On the eve of their debate before the Pennsylvania primary next week, Democrats by a 2-1 margin, 62-31 percent, now see Obama as better able to win in November — a dramatic turn from February, when Clinton held a scant 5-point edge on this measure, and more so from last fall, when she crushed her opponents on electability.

The poll finds other pronounced problems for Clinton. Among all Americans, 58 percent now say she’s not honest and not trustworthy, 16 points higher than in a precampaign poll two years ago. Obama beats her head-to-head on this attribute by a 23-point margin. The number of Americans who see Clinton unfavorably overall has risen to a record high in this polling, 54 percent — up 14 points since January. Obama’s unfavorable score has reached a new high as well, up 9 points, but to a lower 39 percent.

Tough times for the lady, but have faith, well with the Pope in USA now … you never now miracles happen and she hasn’t shown yet what she’s got under the sleeve.

Democrat rivals defend the right for abortion

The two Democratic rivals for their party’s presidential nomination have both affirmed their support for abortion rights.

Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama were speaking at a forum on faith and politics in Pennsylvania, where the next key primary vote is to be held. Both candidates professed their Christian faith as they were questioned on a range of issues.

Republican candidate John McCain declined to attend the forum. Senator Obama leads Senator Clinton in terms of delegates won in the primaries so far. He is hoping to seal his lead with a victory in Pennsylvania ahead of the party’s nominating convention in August.

What the ones against abortion miss is that if somebody wants to do it will do it under any circumstances even if that costs them their own lives, isn’t it better to be protected in a healthy environment with experts around? This is the simplest argument!

Clinton’s chief strategist quits

The chief strategist for Hillary Clinton’s campaign to become the Democratic Party’s candidate for the US presidency has resigned.

Mark Penn stepped down after a row over a potential conflict of interest involving his public relations firm. Mr. Penn’s company had been employed by the Colombian government to help it pursue a free-trade agreement with the US – a deal Mrs. Clinton opposes. Mrs. Clinton is vying with Barack Obama for the Democratic nomination.

They have been fighting a close battle in the continuing state primary election campaign. The latest count of pledged delegates to the party’s national convention in August, according to Associated Press, puts Mr. Obama at 1,634 and Mrs. Clinton at 1,500. A total of 2,024 delegates are needed to win the Democratic nomination.

I’m wondering if it is true that the mice are the first to run out of a sinking boat!

Clintons’ earnings exceed $100m

Democratic presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton and her husband, ex-President Bill Clinton, have revealed they earned more than $100m (£50m) in eight years.

Since 2000, the former first couple took in nearly $110m, with more than $20m made in 2007, and gave more than $10m to charity in the same period. Almost half of the income was made from the former president’s speeches.

Sen. Clinton had been under pressure to release her returns since rival Barack Obama disclosed his for 2000-2006. Both Sen. Obama and John McCain, the Republican presidential nominee, have said they will reveal their 2007 returns later this month.

Both Democratic candidates are keen to show they have nothing to hide from voters as they fight for their party’s nomination, the BBC’s Jack Izzard reports from Washington. Many Americans will pore over these figures, which show just how much the Clintons are worth, he adds.

Now I might sound stupid but is it possible with $100m to have tax …returns?

Hillary like we say …Rocky

Hillary Clinton has vowed to fight on in the contest to be the Democrats‘ presidential candidate, comparing herself to the film character Rocky.

 

Speaking in Philadelphia, where the film Rocky was set, she said: “When it comes to finishing a fight, Rocky and I have a lot in common. I never quit.”

Sylvester be aware a female Rocky is coming! I have to admit that it is amazing what politicians say for a few votes, occasionally even …entertaining!

Obama Says Clinton Should Keep Running

Barack Obama refused Saturday to go along with other Democrats who are calling for Hillary Rodham Clinton to step away from the race for the Democratic presidential nomination. “My attitude is Senator Clinton can run as long as she wants,” Obama said.

Obama told reporters he did not agree with one of his supporters, Vermont Sen. Patrick Leahy, when he said earlier this week that Clinton cannot win the nomination and should therefore drop out. “I hadn’t talked to Pat about it,” Obama said.

At stops throughout the day, Clinton raised the question of whether she should leave the race — eliciting loud jeers from supporters. “There are some people who say we should just stop these elections.’Enough people have already voted, what’s a few million more?'” Clinton said in Louisville, Ky. “I don’t know about you but I’m glad Kentucky is going to be voting and you’ll be choosing because it’s such an important election.” The state holds its primary May 20.

Well he could not say anything else, could he? At least to the media, but he can do something more important, pick the phone and call her and Finlay give an end to this dog fight!
