Hillary: Why Is Barack's Bigger than Mine?

1/26/2008 11:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Both Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton spoke at Furman University in South Carolina last week -- but sources say Clinton is pissed because Obama upstaged her -- literally!

On Tuesday, Barack was given access to Furman's 1,400 capacity McAlister Auditorium -- while Clinton made her Thursday speech from the smaller, 500 capacity Younts Conference Center. Apparently, size does matter!

We're told Hillary's people were steamed when they realized that BO had a bigger room -- and complained to the organizers of the events. A call to Clinton's people was not returned.

Awww, Not This Crap Again!    

I REALLY hope what I'm reading here is a sampling of a consensus from this site's average age group! Since so many do not vote, or think liberal because they are young, and haven't experienced the "real world" yet, their votes are often wasted on not understanding the big picture.

My fear is that if Hilary gets in she'll bring back all of the corrupt "friends of Bill" (including Bill), as payback for keeping their mouths shut during all of the scandals during his terms in office. Never mind the fact that if SHE were to get in, it will set the women's movement back to the Stone Age! There won't be a reputable woman alive who will be able to seek a power title after she sends this country in to a downward spiral--assuming her "make friends with the enemy" foreign policy doesn't get us all blown to bits first!

At least IF Obama gets in (not good either), he doesn't "owe" anyone anything, he's too young and inexperienced, and clueless, but FAR less destructive than Bill and Hil!!!

Vote with your heads, not your hearts, people!

NEITHER will get my vote...and I'm a "soccer Mom" who DOES NOT watch Oprah, Ellen, The View, and HATES Rosie O'Donnell.

HEY, TMZ ........... HOW ABOUT SOME REAL NEWS ???!!!??? LIKE THE FACT THAT ................

JOHNNY DEPP HAS ALREADY BEEN ASKED BY TERRY GILLIAN TO REPLACE LEDGER IN HIS FINAL ROLE ...

They were only 6 weeks away from wrapping on the production "Imaginarium of Dr. P." when Heath died. They plan on a script re-write to "explain" the change in Heath's character's look. At one point in the film Heath's character falls through a magic mirror. It is here that Depp takes over emerging from the mirror.

IT'S ALL ABOUT THE $$$$$$$$$$$$$$ FOLKS !!!!!!!!!

Nice photo manipulation, TMZ. Use the blurry, downwards casting eyes shot of HC and the clear, upward looking shot of BO. Not very subtle, eh?

BTW, both Dems are in the pockets of Big Business just like our last four presidents. John Edwards is the only candidate fighting against BB, lobbyists, and their corrupt influence on our government.

Grow up and stop pushing for Obama, this country will NOT elect a black man to the white house. Anyone who thinks it is possible is stupid. Think about it, in a country that has things such as the Jena 6 still going on and so many instances of the KKK still VERY MUCH alive and well in the South this country will NOT allow him into office. Even if he is elected it will be a matter of time before someone removes him from the office by force. He will not actually serve this country, he will either lose or be carried out in a body bag.

Racial tensions that are still very alive will prevent him from winning.

I don't think that Hillary's bunch could be blamed one bit for getting bugged over this, Next thing you know, hhe stupid media would be reporting on how Obama filled a auditorium to thousands and Hillary only sold 500.This would not only make her look bad, like she couldnt sell seats to many. Every politician wants as many people as possible to attend their forums, I dont blame the Clinton campaign for not liiking this, Im sure if this had happened to Obama , he would have bitched, also. Most people would have.

Does anyone with brains think Obama would not have griped had this been him and his campaign in this situation? Of course he would have, I agree, there is no politician who would have gladly put up with Hillary's situation.

The Clinton team complains about everything. How would Hillary like it if Michelle Obama kept getting on the stage and disparaging her the way Bill does to Oback?
