Kentucky Superdelegates Being Courted By Clinton, Obama Campaigns

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - When Moretta Bosley's phone rings, it
could be a Clinton or Obama calling.

As a Democratic superdelegate, the western Kentucky activist has
been courted by relatives of Hillary Rodham Clinton and Barack
Obama in the historic struggle for their party's presidential

In recent weeks, Bosley has heard from Bill and Chelsea Clinton
and from Obama's wife, Michelle.

"I'm a housewife and work at a restaurant," said Bosley, whose
family runs a well-known Owensboro barbecue eatery. "I never
dreamed that I would be in a position to know and meet presidential

If the Democratic race remains a tossup, a lot more Kentuckians
will become familiar with Clinton and Obama. For a state best known
for the Kentucky Derby, the hottest political horse race in years
could still be in doubt when Kentucky has its primary election May
20. Oregon holds its primary the same day.

"It's going to be a really exciting time in Kentucky," said
state Democratic chairwoman Jennifer Moore, predicting both
candidates will visit the Bluegrass state and fill the airwaves
with commercials.

    I think the people need to remember that when Bill Clinton was in office he had to turn us around from the problems that were left over from Bush and Reagan. The people also need to remember that if Congress and the Senate had had their way the taxpayers would have had to bail out the Bureau of Indian Affairs for monies they spent ( not on the American Indians ) and couldn't account for. All Newt Gingrich and the Congress wanted to do was cut Bill Clinton down because he had also cut Government spending and they couldn't get a raise. And he also kept Welfare from going under, by making the sorry men to work. Now, we have a war we don't need ( and Bill warned Bush about this ), we have no money in the Social Security, Veteran's, Welfare or any other cabinet because we have been robbed by Bush and this war. Does Obama know how to turn this around? No. He can't get anything passed in Congress. Does Hillary? Maybe not. But, she is married to the man that does.
