Clinton vows to go 'all the way'

COLUMBUS, Ohio (CNN) – Sen. Hillary Clinton claimed victory in Ohio Tuesday night and vowed to take the win "all the way" to the Democratic nomination for president.

"For everyone here in Ohio and across America who was counted out but refused to be knocked out, for everyone who has stumbled but got back up, for everyone who works hard but never gives up, this one is for you," she said.

"You know what they say," she said. "As Ohio goes, so goes the nation. Well, this nation's coming back and so is this campaign."

    Um, maybe OBAMA SHOULD DROP OUT? Let your analysts consider that. I'm watching right now, and his acolytes seem a little less than thrilled.

    ~no he can't

    There is a huge difference between – "Yes we can" and "Yes we will"

    Figure it out!!!

    Good for Clinton that she won, but realistically speaking, is there any chance she can still beat Obama?

    OK.. Obama just spoke for 15 minutes and hasn't said a thing about his platform or plans. He's trashed everyone and everything in our government.

    I couldn't care less where he's from or his skin color, I want to hear HOW he's going to "CHANGE" our country.

    GIVE ME SPECIFICS!!! NOT SERMONS!!!!

    I'm still wondering who the "WE" in "Yes 'we' can" is? He is definantly NOT speaking for this black man.

    Sounds like we all better get used to the words "President McCain."

    Conrats, Hillary, on putting your ego before the good of the Party or the country.

    Even though she won she still is going to be behind about the same number of delegates as she was before today. Congrats to her for Ohio but it is time to step aside because she wont have enough delegates to beat Obama. Step aside for our party and stop being selfish and bitter.

    After reading more about Ralph Nader, if Obama doesn't win the nomination this is one Democrat that will be voting for Ralph Nader over Hillary or McCain in November.

    Her win just goes to show that it is politics as usual. Sling some mud, make a few unsubstantiated claims and voila!
    There comes a time when Americans will realize that her stunts are just that. She wants to the White House -not to work for Americans. Every time she wins, it is a sad moment in time because we know she is fighting dirty.

    Her tactics continue to divide the party. She is about two populations: older white women and Latinos.

    Barak is about EVERYBODY.

    Its interesting how the same demographics that voted for George W. Bush (according to CNN exit polling) voted for Hillary over Obama.

    I just sent my doantion to Hillary. The future of America which in her confident, dilligent, dedicated heart and hands can be spent to continue the course. Please consider being nicer to her. You are hurting all the women in the country when you are so snide. You can't do that to Obama because the black power is stronger than the American Woman.

    Too little too late Hillary. Obama is still in the lead, and will go on to defeat McCain. Thanks for trying dear, now go fix me a sandwich.

    CNN, please post some blurb about how the Clinton campaign decided LAST WEEK that they were going to file a lawsuit to keep the Texas caucus results from coming out on Tuesday night/Monday morning in an effort to keep the actual results out of the normal news cycle.

    Oh please Melanie! Obama is a copy cat. Everything Hillary says, he says I agree with her. And when she put up the ad with the red phone, he wanted to be have that red phone ad. Go HILLARY!!! DON'T LET the Obama Supporter scare you!!! The Obama Supporters are scary cuz you have bad people who support him. Like Rezko the scum and that outspoken farrakhan guy.

    How about you all grow up and stop bashing the Obama supporters and campaign! Every time I come on this site, it's constant bashing against his campaign (or against CNN because supposedly they are in favor of Obama). Why don't you accept defeat when it comes into your face? right now you are all happy because Hillary won (I congratulate her on her wins) but as soon as she'll lose again, I would love to see how you will all react then....

    I think that the remainnig two percent go with the undecided. The other thing that I wanted to say is that Obama is a copycat. He's using everything that Hillary says as his own words. Sorry Melanie, but we are moving on.
