Presidential Campaign Heats Up In Kentucky

The political spotlight continues to shine on Kentucky, with two presidential candidates making visits to the bluegrass state this weekend.

Senator Hillary Clinton plans to visit the commonwealth on Saturday. So far, her camp isn't providing details on where she'll visit.

Her husband, former President Bill Clinton, plans to make five stops in western Kentucky on Friday.

Thursday, he made stops in Louisville, Elizabethtown and Bardstown.

At Nelson County High School, the former president maintained the race for the democratic nomination isn't over. Clinton also talked about early education, affordable health care, access to higher education and the economy.

Despite being behind in polls in Kentucky, democratic presidential hopeful Barack Obama has picked up four more super delegates.

Obama traded barbs with President Bush on Thursday. The flap started with the President's speech where he warned against negotiating with terrorists and compared it to trying to appease Hitler before World War II.

Obama, who has said he would talk with other world leaders, called the comments a "sad political attack".

The White House denies President Bush had Obama in mind when he made the comment.

Republican candidate John McCain will also be in Kentucky on Friday.

Senator McCain will speak at the National Rifle Association convention in Louisville.

Ron Paul is also in Kentucky Friday. He's visiting folks at Bowling Green High School. Saturday he'll be making rounds in Louisville.

    Jeremiah Wright - You should always give credit where credit is due and state where you received your information if you are taking a direct quote from someone else's words. You need to know true research skills before claiming something to be true. Craigslist? That is, unless you actually wrote the commentary on the following site. Then you have every right to quote. Let that be known, if that is the case. http://nh.craigslist.org/pol/634092668.html Use your own synopsis if you are going to put your name on it. Copyright infringement comes with a huge cost.

    In her senior thesis at Princeton, Michele Obama, the wife of Barack Obama stated that America was a nation founded on crime and hatred. Moreover, she stated that whites in America were ineradicably racist. The 1985 thesis, titled "Princeton-Educated Blacks and the Black Community" was written under her maiden name, Michelle LaVaughn Robinson.
