I was remarking on how you said "2.9 million nurses" endorsed her. I doubt thats true. Whats probably more accurate is to say that the leaders ofthat particular union,with 2.9 million members, endorsed her.
It may be true that a lot of the members support her, but i really doubt every single one of those 2.9 million nurses actually support her.
But whatever. Good for her. She's still not gonna win.

"Clinton falsely accused Obama of saying he "really liked the ideas of the Republicans" including private Social Security accounts and deficit spending. Not true. The entire 49-minute interview to which she refers contains no endorsement of private Social Security accounts or deficit spending, and Obama specifically scorned GOP calls for tax cuts."
"We can't speak to how things "came across" to Clinton, but we've listened to the entire interview and to our ears, it's just flatly false that Obama said he "really liked the ideas of the Republicans"
I dont care how slow you are...no one, no one gives up a run for the most powerful government office in the world because you don't want to go on the Daily SHow. He could have, instead of dropping out, just cancelled his appearance. It happens all the time in the world of tv booking. I love TDS as much as anyone, but seriously, to think Thompson dropped out because he was afraid of Jon Stewart is a pretty gigantic stretch i think.
Bill Richardson is his own worst enemy. He keeps making gaffes like he did on the HRC forum or on Meet the Press and his candidacy is done.
I do believe he has the experience and the resume for the job. I just think he lacks the polish that some of the others have and so, in all honesty, he looks amateurish next to Obama and Clinton and even Edwards. He's going to have to overcome that and stop putting his foot in his mouth.
