"Hillary's word: It's worth nothing"

So says an angry Manchester (NH) Union Leader, which takes Hillary Clinton to task in its editorial pages, saying that she's violating the pledge she signed to not campaign in Florida.

"Clinton coldly and knowingly lied to New Hampshire and Iowa," the editorial says. "Her promise was not a vague statement. It was a signed pledge with a clear and unequivocal meaning. She signed it thinking that keeping the other candidates out of Michigan and Florida was to her advantage, but knowing she would break it if that proved beneficial later on. It did, and she did.

"New Hampshire voters, you were played for suckers."

She followed the pledge it was Obama who advertised in Florida, it was Obama who told Florida they don't count. I found it ironic that in the last election the African Americans voters were surpressed in the last election and this election an African American is surpressing the election to all of the voters.
Anyone who can support him even if they have a D after their name should be ashamed to all of the voters in Florida and Michigan. Senator Clinton thank you for caring of enought to do it what is correct for us..the voters!

Hillary isn't campaigning in Florida. She is going there after the election to thank the people who voted for her. If you can't see a difference, then you probably didn't support her in the first place.

But for the other Democrats to say that Florida doesn't matter is pretty short-sighted. I guess they have already forgotten the lesson of 2000.
