The irony of this, perhaps, is that Clinton has criticized Obama for borrowing the words of his campaign ally, [...]

It boils down to the fact that Hispanic districts with more voters actually get less delegates than black districts with fewer voters.

Artists rendering of the Northrup KC-30. We told you yesterday that the decision may come down as early as today… Northrop Grumman and EADS have somehow managed to defeat heavy-favorite Boeing in the battle to replace the Air Force’s aging fleet of aerial refueling tankers. The initial contract for 80 aircraft is valued at $40 [...]

This man must not be allowed to become president. This is the most frightening 52 seconds I have ever spent listening to a politician. Don’t forget, “independent” means “unqulalified civilian beard-pullers”. >

Those polled were split between believing that many of the pictures bordered on soft-porn or were not ever even directly related to the story. [...]
