I am so mad and disgusted! I just listened to Tim Russett's MEET THE PRESS (Sunday, May 25) . I am for Hillary Clinton for president because I think she is better informed about the problems facing our country, and more able to deal with them. But the first half of Russet's panel spent the entire time on her missstatements, mistakes and especially critized the reasons she gave for staying in the race. NOT ONE WORD was said about her program, her solutions, her views or what kind of a president she would make. I think the press in general has not won any kudos during this primary season, but this was a low point. I will vote for whomever wins the nomination, and I strongly support the Democratic party because I feel that our future safety and progress depend upon turning around, if possible, the bad government of the last eight years. But I feel so sure that this morning's program, based on nothing about our country's problems, but only on how many mistakes they feel that Hillary Clinton has made, will NOT help us in any posiltive way to a better government. I have lost all respect for Tim Russet for planning such a presentation, and feel that this was the last straw in my respect for the press as it has operated in this election!!! It will be hard for me to have any joy today-----Marian

I guess the deal is to make the race seem more like reality TV and focus on personality, poles, and gaffs. This makes it easier for people to follow without having to learn about what the candidates stand for or what may happen when the general election is over. Like you I will vote for the Democratic candidate in hopes that we will at last get out of the war in Iraq and maybe return to more sensible fiscal policies. It would be nice to buy things made by us once in a while.

Now this is said maybe I can get back about my business.
