That is great for Obama! Good turnout. I didn't know it was happening. I do know it looks like a shoo in for Obama in Ory-gawn.<br><br>The Clinton/Obama teams are now working on combining efforts to work on the November campaign. I will still cast my vote for Clinton but support the nominee in the November election, whomever <br><br>They've both done such good jobs and must be near exhaustion. I wish for them some refreshing, resting experiences before getting down the the serious business of beating McCain big time!<br><br><br><br>

That campaign must be extremely grueling. <br>They are traveling back and forth between states with very little sleep at times. <br>I couldn't come close to doing something like that.<br><br><br><br>

It's pretty easy, Sean. She's the one wearing the Obama button.<br><br><br><br>

The Oregon primary always seemed so far off and the only reason I was even looking forward to it was knowing that you would finally be able to cast your vote for Hillary. <br><br><br><br>

Well I have to say, Hillary can be proud of most (not all) of her campaign... I think she'd done better if she'd kept the "high" raod on several occassions.... but she IS one savvy, and powerful political Lady. NO one can match her - she is the most powerful woman in politics, Dem or GOP ! <br> I'd pay big $$ to see her and Coulter duke it out! ... course that be expensive for the 10 sec it'd last , with Ann down on the mat begging the referee to call the match !! <br><br>I hope she does come back and run again... but with a little more finesse.<br><br>David (OFI)

I was very worried about how the campaign was going a few weeks ago, but now that we are at the end and it is time for the Democratic Party to unify, it does look like both candidates are handling their campaigns with tremendous decorum. Sen. Obama is not showing any impatience for the race to end and not rubbing any of the results in. Sen. Clinton has totally ceased some of her less attractive arguments and returned to a positive campaign. Party activists have resigned to reality and stopped wringing their hands and (quite bizarrely) looking to Al Gore to settle this.<br><br>It's the end of a good campaign that stirred a lot of blood. I only hope that the primary road show will end up motivating more volunteers for races up and down the ballot in all of the many states it stopped in.<br><br>-- Cee Bee Double-U
