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."

    I have to say after listening to obama's speech on cnn tonight about how he feels and his stance. that it amazes me that he wants none of his background brought up but did bring it up in his own speech. Not only that but he said that "america should be the last hope". The man must have forgot he was running for president of America......I was planning on supporting Obama but after stating america is the last hope for people that turns me off and I fully Support Hillary .. Go Hillary .

    I cannot believe that Ohio is still that stupid! Were they not the ones that helped George W. Bush get elected? If the DNC puts Hillary up as the nominee this time around I will quit voting Democrat and switch to Independent. That is not easy for me to say since I have been a consistent voter since I was able to vote at age 18 almost 34 years ago. I rather vote for Ralph Nader than Hillary Clinton. The Republicans have been her biggest supporter and the general public have sold into it hook, line and sinker. What a sad day for Ohio and the Nation! By the way, I will also take all my monetary support with me and move to another Country!

    Yes! Go Hillary! She is a fighter and she doesn't quit! I want to find out more about this cherry picking Judge who kept some areas open. They were not flooded. What is going on there? Now, just take a look at how Chris M. and Keith O. the campaign chairs for the Obama team respond.

    The numbers and polls show it. Common sense shows it. Even Rush Limbaugh/Ann Coulter can claim it. The right knows they can beat Hillary. There is enough division amongst it's own party, hatred from any republicans that may switch over, and lack of independent support for Hillary that all point that a vote for Hillary is a vote for McCain and four more years of Bush.

    With Obama keeping his lead, the polls show he will beat McCain. Part of this is due to McCains lack of Christian support which will go to Obama.

    Hillary's pluses over Obama are experience and military support. However take her pluses and they are dwarfed to McCains.

    Luckily, he has a dominating lead.

    Oh I am afraid the deflector shields will be quite operational when you return to the trail, Hillary.

    You're still behind in delegates.

    The Republicans are so happy the Hillary won. She is the polarizing force that will make another Republican term happen. Obama IS the hope of this country.

    Christmas comes early for John McCain and the Republicans. Think of all the money the Republicans will save while HRC and BHO beat the hell out of each other until Pennsylvania.

    Wow, did you just hear Obama – putting Hilary with McCain and saying she doesn't want change and health care for all Americans.

    If Hilary did this she would be attached by the Republic Run and Biased Media (yeah you CNN).

    Lets see if anything is said about this.

    Go Hilary!!

    For the believers in socialized medicine, answer this question – do you want the same care that the VA has delivered? The government sponsered VA has been in place for 50+ yrs and have you ever heard anyone appauld the VA's service? Something to think about...

    HILLARY!!! MY Heart is bursting with PRIDE! You Go Girl! Only you could win while he outspent you 4 to 1. Only you could win when the media (except SNL) is in his back pocket. Only you could win when all the biased political pundits urge you to (WHAT?!?) drop-out! Only you could win when he had the momentum of winning 11 states. Only you will be able to defeat McCain.
    I will NEVER vote for him. It's time we Democrats all woke up. How can everyone not see how green, naive and fake this guy is? The 18 year olds vote for the guy. Anyone past the age of 30 votes for her. Remember how clueless you were when you were 18? I mean, come on already!

    Thank you Ohio and RI for voting Hilary Clinton. She will pay tribute to people in those states.

    To Black Man for Hillary... And... what is it exactly that Hillary has done for us in her 35 years? Uh... supported NAFTA which basically destroyed Ohio, ran a scandalous law firm, sold us out to big Healthcare companies for a check, and... what else has she done for us? Uh... No, she can't.

    Listen to all the Obama-ites start whining, and wouldn't you know it, they do it by trashing Clinton. Get a grip, dreamers. It ain't over 'till it's over, and it ain't over yet.
