    What is common among Obama, Clinton, and Wolfowitz? Bilderberg. All visited the meeting of the Bilderbergs the year before they came upon their treasured positions. Recall? And yes, there is a point. I'm going to ask, was Emanuel also showing up at these meetings? Our so called leaders are not elected, they are picked.

    Gee, wonder why we don't see that Obama's going to campaign for him? Could it be he doesn't want him to? Can't blame him a bit if that's the case.
