Obama Campaign Opens Second Kentucky Office

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - Democratic presidential candidate Barack
Obama's campaign has opened its second office in Kentucky.

The campaign on Monday held a rally for supporters at its new
Lexington headquarters that drew around 400 people.

Obama's statewide director Carolyn Tandy says plans are being
made for Obama and his wife to return to Kentucky for campaign
events, but no dates have been set.

The campaign opened an office in Louisville last month and is
slated to open other offices later this month across the state,
Tandy said.

Kentucky has come into play in the tight Democratic race between
Obama and his rival Hillary Clinton, although the state's primary
isn't until May 20.

Clinton stumped in Kentucky on March 29 and former President
Bill Clinton has been in the state on her behalf twice in as many
weeks.

    Anyone who votes on the basis of ethnicity, religion, or gender please throw your ballot away and never return again because you are the root cause of bad politicians. When Bush was appointed President there were many who said they voted for him because he was a Christian, so was Hitler. If you voted for Bush because he was white...so was Hitler. If you're a woman and you're voting for Hillary because you want to see a woman in charge, throw your vote away too. Gender doesnt change how a decision is made just who can make the babies. If you're a greedy capitalist pig of a man or a woman you're still a greedy capitalists pig. If you vote for Barack because he's black throw your vote away, Ken Blackwell was black and he aided in Bush's second term by messing with the 200,000 votes in Ohio. I think everyone should vote so long as they know what ideals they are voting for and not a look a like contest. Vote to make a difference not to stay the same. Vote for peace.

    People are encouraged to believe that by there not yet being a democratic nominee that the party is dividing. I do not agree. I am proud that finally there is an uproar for the presidential election. I feel sorry for the republicans that were cheated out of choosing their presiidential nominee due to their quick policies to knock out potentially better candidates, who do not have the advantages of 'celebrity' status, such as McCain. If the window of opportunity is so small for being able to become a presidential candidate how can a country be sure that someone else cannot do a better job? It is a miracle that Obama, given the journey that he has ventured, has been able to make it this far. As citizens of the United States lets put humanism back into politics and seriously consider Obama, our true candidate for the people.

    Im just wondering! Would he be opening these offices in KY if the primary didnt have much of a say so? Probably not! Its all about the votes, not the people.

    To those posters screaming discrimination against Barack Obama...get over yourselves! Kentuckians have voted for minority candidates in the past. Check this link and see where a highly qualified gentleman by the name of Harry Sykes narrowly lost the race for Mayor of Lexington over 37 years ago...only 7 years after the Civil Rights Act. http://www.thehistorymakers.com/biography/biography.asp?bioindex=374&category=civicMakers Ever heard of Georgia Powers and her contributions to the Commonwealth? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Georgia_Davis_Powers

    Let's see........Bosina, Mark Penn, Hosptial story, not paying bills... Lies, lies, lies..........and if you can't manage your campaign, how can you manage the most powerful job in the world? Read up on Hillary and all these bad decisions. Oh and lets not forget the taxes......all these business deals with foreign interest. IE: Colombia deal...Bill was paid $800,000 to lobby for Colombia......
