'Oprahpalooza' comes to South Carolina

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) -- Oprah Winfrey has told thousands of people at Williams-Brice Stadium to reject Barack Obama's detractors and help him "seize the opportunity" in his bid for the White House. Obama's campaign says nearly 30,000 people attended yesterday's event at the stadium in Columbia. It had the feel of a rock concert, with bands playing for early arrivals and campaign supporters yelling "fire it up" to the crowd. A new poll for McClatchy newspapers and MSNBC shows Hillary Clinton and Obama in a virtual tie in South Carolina. Former North Carolina Senator John Edwards is a distant third.

-----CLINTON SLEEZE FATIGUE WILL INVIGORATE GOP, DISPIRIT DEMOCRATS AND SINK DEMOCRATIC TICKET----- -----EDWARDS/RICHARDSON TO WIN----- It is possible that Senator Clinton is the best candidate. However, even though many may like the policies that Senator Clinton proposes, they should also consider her record, just as Senator Clinton insists. . The last Clinton Administration, when faced with the fact that protection rackets where assaulting, torturing and murdering people with poison and radiation, chose to avoid its responsibilities to incarcerate the criminals and to protect the citizenry. . Instead, they made a deal with the criminal gang stalker protection rackets to leave them alone and to consequently abandon the citizenry. . Do we want a President who sells out the citizenry for votes? . Do we want a President who sends a "crime does pay" message to society? . Would you vote for a President who signed nonaggression deals with the KKKlan or the Nazi party? Gangs that torture with poison and radiation are much like the KKKlan and Nazi Party. . We do not need a sellout President. We need a principled leader President. .
