He sees clearly that we must craft a strong foreign policy and rebuild the United States' image abroad. He will move our nation forward."Congratulations also to Senator Barack Obama, who came in second with 21.37% of the vote. Sue in Waco speaks for a lot of Texans when she says "I've watched Senator Obama since his speech at the Democratic Convention. That night I decided that this was a man that could make a difference. I heard him speak again in Austin and I was further impressed that he was a man of vision and someone that could heal this country and put us back on the right track."

"John Edwards is not a divider. His words are uplifting. His wife is a solid person and will be a strong first lady. He has the best solution for the health care crisis in the US, and I believe that he will settle the horrific mess the Republicans brought us in Iraq. He has a great record, and I trust him."

Senator Hillary Clinton came in a strong third, with 20.43% of the vote. Marissa in Edinburg summed up why she and so many other Texans are supporting Senator Clinton: "I think we are in desperate need for a change and I think she is the right person for the job. The country needs a descisive person to help clean up the mess the United States is in and it's going to take some one with a plan and a vision for the future. Hilary Clinton is that person."
