Clinton Claims to Lead in "Every Poll


www.cbsnews.com

BILLINGS, MONT. -- During an evening rally in Montana’s largest city Tuesday night, Hillary Clinton explained to the crowd why she should be the Democratic Party’s nominee, but what ensued was a list of overstatements and exaggerations as she made her case. “You have to ask yourself, who is the stronger candidate? And based on every analysis, of every bit of research and every poll that has been taken and every state that a Democrat has to win, I am the stronger candidate against John McCain in the fall,” she said.

The problem is, there are a number of polls that show Clinton in a close race with John McCain, many within the margin of error, not including a few that show Barack Obama beating McCain by a larger margin than Clinton.

Really?

I suppose that's why she has lost the nomination.

Oh that's right all of those who vote for Obama are sexists.

Talk about a disconnect from reality.

The only thing Hillary is leading in is a poll of Testosterone content...


Maybe is is another "mis-speak". Persumably she meant that she was last in all polls, but misspoke it into first.

This whole process is wearing very thin with me.

Votes for or against Hillary are sexist, votes for or against Obama are racist, and a vote for McCain is a vote for Bush. If the candidates spent as much time on pointless, meaningless crap that shouldn't matter one iota to the informed voter as they did on running the country... maybe a corner could be turned.

I listen to a lot of speeches and read a lot of material surrounding this election. I'm not an eligible voter because I'm not American. So speaking from what I would like to think is an informed position, and an unbiased one, I would cast a vote for Obama over Hillary and I would vote for him in the general election.

Maybe I'm wrong, but he seems to talk more about the country and what needs to be done, than one another. When he speaks of McCain, it seems to be in response of something he or Bush said.

I'm certainly not "pro-Obama", but at this point.. it's got to be one of them. And I'd like to see Obama get elected.

Hillary's last minute scrounging should be seen for what it is, as disingenuous as those tears were a few months ago.

Oddly enough, at the beginning of this democratic race.. I would looking to see Hillary come out on top on the primaries. Not sure why, wasn't really a fan. But as the results poured in, I was hoping to see her name come up.

In the long run what is important is whether the candidate can govern. In all actuality on that, all three are certainly capable. The rest is entirely personal political preference.

I like both Clinton and Obama, and I want to be fair. She was reciting a "laundry list" of factors that should be taken into account when selecting a future president, and polls were one factor. She didn't actually say she won all the polls.

You know it's a close contest when you have to dissect every word out of a candidate's mouth in order to make your decision.

Your take on this makes Clinton look ever worse (quite an achievement!).

Since when should polls have any bearing whatsoever on who is elected? This claim at its core is more ludicrous than it even appears on the surface (not your claim, Clinton's).

When did the Democrats turn the electoral process into such a fiasco? It's like trying to convince the commissioner of the NFL that your team should be declared the winner of the Super Bowl because you played better than the other team, even though you lost.

She will have lost it because people voted for Obama before he was vetted. He got all his big wins at the start of this campaign. Now that more facts about him are coming out, the haze of the hope-ium is clearing a bit, and Hillary is getting more votes.

But people, why can't I be president? What is wrong with me?
I really am a good person!

It is such a shame when someone her age acts like a 5 year old lying in the middle of the toy at Wal-mart crying because mom won't buy them anything.

If three is the rule, I'm looking for another 'y' meltdown.
There was Britney, Lindsey, and now Hillarity?
