Barack Obama Gets Big Endorsement In Kentucky

3rd district Representative John Yarmuth endorsed the Illinois senator Friday morning over a conference call.

Yarmuth represents the Louisville-area in Washington. He won his seat from republican Anne Northup back in 2006.

    The congressman does not represent the views of people in the Ville, We are still waiting to hear Obama's accomplishments! We would also appreciate that he refrain from using the word Whinning when he is defending something he does not like coming from Clinton, It is a typical Male Dominated Tatic used by Men to intimidate Women...He has not agreed with some men..But of course they were not whinning, just voicing their Opinion. That one comment showed some true colors there. Most every women has heard this from a male (who veiws women a subordinate) in their career. That comment totally tuned me out and quite a few other women here in the ville and we together make up more races then Obama has in his bloodline. It's not the race that matters it's the judment he passed. It was out of line.

    I wouldn't vote for Hilary because she isn't strong enough or smart enough to kick her sick, oversexed, lying husband out of her bed, house, and life. Any woman who continues to live with that kind of a man is weak and maybe even mentally challenged!

    Sorry, RM, but the MEDIA won't let the race/gender/religion aspect of the candidates alone, it isn't the people, it's the media.

    Has anyone heard of separation of church and state? I think a lot of people need to research the issues and vote based on that. Not gender, race of religious affiliation. To say that you will not vote for someone because they are Muslim or Mormon is just ignorant. They have religious beliefs and live their lives based on those beliefs the same way you do. If someone said that your religion was evil and your beliefs are wrongs, I'm sure you would be greatly offended. It's not like your voting for an atheist. I had a friend tell me a few days ago...."If we elect a black president, blacks will get of place and think they can do whatever they want." That is the reason Kentucky and the rest of the south has the stereotype it has. Vote on the issues and leave race, gender and religion out of it.

    I'm not voting for Obama because FOX NEWS tells me he's a Muslim with ties to terrorism....

    @woman's day out - True, it may be time for a woman to run the country, but not this one...

    I think DEMOCRAT-Female from Laurel Co should believe in a dictionary before she believes in God. Too many spelling errors and grammatical errors to even give examples. What is wrong with you people? The government keeps talking about making sure everyone has internet access but I think we should make certain everyone can at least spell.

    I don't need celebraties to encourage me who to vote for. And YES it is time for a change. And I believe that Clinton has the experience, and education to do the job. Not because she's a woman, because she will make decisions. I would like to see this war over. Bring our soldiers home. Make our country & economy stronger. Clinton debated Obama in S.C. and brought up the fact that he is so neutral on voting as a sentor. If he can't make decisions there, I sure don't want him in the White House. I agree Americans better wake up.. His religious back ground truly concerns me. He wants change, but he's not giving enough details to sale it for me. If he makes it for president; his Vice will be whose running the country. I still can't believe how many trillions of dollars this country is in debt.. The U.S. is too dependant on other countries. We should be more self sufficient. Believe in GOD -and pray.

    I do not endorse either party as I like to hear what each candidate will do for America. With that said, I still have not heard anything from Obama except the same rhetoric involving the word "change." Change of what? Change for what? What kind of change? He needs to explain this in detail. Until he can explain what "change" means, I can't even consider him a possible candidate.
