Presidential Race Focuses On Kentucky

Kentuckians head to the polls in just six days to vote in the presidential primary.

Hillary Clinton says her win in the West Virginia Democratic presidential primary is an "overwhelming vote of confidence."

And Clinton, who coasted to victory over Barack Obama, told supporters in Charleston that she is "more determined than ever" to carry on the campaign."

Former President Bill Clinton is scheduled to visit Louisville, Bardstown and Elizabethtown.

Hillary Clinton appealed to backers for their financial support to help her through what she calls "the home stretch." She asked them to go to her Web site. She also called for the party to make sure that delegates from Florida and Michigan are seated at the convention. Those states were sanctioned for moving their primaries ahead of Super Tuesday.

The New York senator said she's in the race because she believes
she is "the strongest candidate," even though Barack Obama is closing in on nomination.

Clinton also said she will work out her heart to make sure there is a Democrat in the White House.

    It's Muslim, not "muslin", you dummy. What ignorance! Do some research and you'll discover that Obama isn't a "muslin". Although I'll have a great time making fun of you today!

    A democracy is supposed to be that the PEOPLE vote for whomever they want as president, not the media! Obama is hiding alot of things & it will be too late for all of us if he is elected president! I think he is a sneaky liar that has fooled alot of people! He says whatever he thinks people want to hear! He has NO experience to be president. He'll hand this country over to the muslins. He's not devote to this country because he holds dual citizenship with Kenya. What will Americans say when we become another state of Kenya, which is mostly muslin? I'm voting for Clinton! People who vote for Obama will be crying out in horror if he becomes the president! I'm not going to be one of them. I urge every Christian in this nation to vote for Clinton in the primaries! Let's show the media that they don't know everything! Chandler & our Lt. Gov. lost my vote because they didn't wait & let the people vote before they endorse Obama! Their actions say that they don't care about Kentuckian's.

    This is starting to get funny. All these posts make it sound like this is the election and not a primary. "It's either Hillary or Obama". Let's not forget, there are other parties and candidates that will be running for the REAL position. In the mean time, I'll just sit back and rest assured that this great state will vote another lame, worthless lump in office, just like we did for Governor...

    As a proud supporter of Hillary Clinton, and having attended one of her campaigns speakings. I would like to encourage all readers of this comment and every registered democrat voters to vote for Hillary. No matter what the media may try to tell us we do matter. Please do not get me wrong on this I do believe that Obama may have some good points on his campaign..BUT.. Hillary has more experience in this, she has been there before with her husband Bill. She is more ready for this position. Hillary has what it takes for this and being as I just stated formally in the white house, she knows how things work and would be able to more quickly bring to action all of her great plans for our country. Not only her being in the white house before, she is also a very very VERY successful senator. Again please make the right decision and vote for Hillary!
