Clinton postpones Charlotte visit

There's no luck 'o the Irish for Charlotte supporters of Sen. Hillary Clinton.

Former President Bill Clinton was expected to visit for a fundraiser on Monday. Invitations had already gone out for the St. Patrick's Day fundraiser at the City Club.

Now Clinton is scheduled to visit Friday April 4. That's about a month before North Carolina's May 6 primary. Organizers are still working on a time and place.

"We had a scheduling issue with the president," says Mark Erwin

Campaign officials say they had pledges of more than $100,000. Now, with more advance notice, they hope to raise more. Tickets are still expected to go from $250 to $2,300.

"We'll still have a $250 level for folks, which is very unusual for people to come see the president of the United States for $250," Erwin said.

I was on the fence but after the Rev Wright video (he is the equivalent of the KKK) and Tony Rezko trial, NO OBAMA.

Why is there no coverage of Rev. Wright in this newspaper?!

How can Obama possibly claim to be a unifier when he's spent 20 years listening to his divisive and racist Pastor's comments?

“Barack knows what it means living in a country and a culture that is controlled by rich white people,”

"Hillary ain't never been called a ni[xx]er,"

In addition to damning America, [Rev.Wright] told his congregation on the Sunday after Sept. 11, 2001 that the United States had brought on al Qaeda's attacks because of its own terrorism.

Just saw analysis and OBAMA cannot win a general election, only Clinton can.

Why did Michelle Obama get a $200,000 raise/promotion from her employer when her husband became senator?

I think if this had happened to Bill Clinton it would be thoroughly questioned.

Obama then earmarked $1 million for her employer -University of Chicago Hospital--which was not granted by the senate.

This raise and its timing would rub MANY Americans the wrong way.

You have a choice between a new vision for this country (Obama) or politics as usual (Clinton and/or McCain). Think carefully my friends. Don't let negative press sway intelligent thought.

* Why did Michelle recently get a huge raise to $300K per year salary? My understanding is she is working for a charity and she gave herself a raise.
* Pastor Wright is like no pastor who I've ever heard. He talks like a sailor..and this ain't the first-time...definitely R-rated language and body movements. The stuff he said about the girl in Aruba was a disgrace!!
* Buy a ticket now to hear about what Hillary can do to help our country. Hillary Clinton is the best presidential candidate choice- we had peace and prosperity and a budget surplus during Bill Clinton. Hillary traveled widely,and wrote her book It takes a Village. She was an extraordinary first lady!

In the U.S., we probably need to update the presidential qualifications to define that a natural-born citizen is one who has parents who were both citizens at the time of the birth, their native language must be English. The candidate should be born in one of the 50 states of the USA, or an exception can be granted if away from the US due to military duty. The person needs to live in one of the 50 states of the US for 20 years. Now that we outsourced our manufacturing, IT, financial, and customer service jobs, it's not so radical to think that the next step could be to outsource the presidency to a third-world nation.

Then you ask me to
"Buy a ticket now to hear about what Hillary can do to help our country."

So its ok for me to give my money to the Clinton machine then turn around and blast a person for getting a raise. WOW, maybe you should think about the logic of what your saying.
