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."

    This Republican boy voted for Hillary and will continue to support the best candidate. I am none too impressed with McCain (ugh) and will agree with the devil Ann Coulter for once. GO HILLARY!!!

    Hillary may have won tonight, but with her negative compaigning as if she was a republican, she won't win my vote.

    "for everyone who works hard but never gives up"
    That's why I like Hillary.
    I think she is a good role model for me and my daughter. Tonight I am happy not because Hillary wins, but also that this country still appreciates hard work.
    Old value takes us a long way, please prove it for us, Hillary.

    If Hillary wins Texas, it will be due to Republicans voting for her, open primary...and just look at the numbers. Republicans understand that if she gets the nomination, Obama supporters are jumping over onto the Nader raft. Easy win for McCain.

    Barack, you are still ahead.....You have a commanding lead with voters. Hillary stop talking about experience. What experience do you have. You were the first lady, not the president. You talk about experience, well, Ms. Thing, we see where experience has gotten this country.

    people asked if we were ready to give up, and i told them that "I DIDN'T PICK HER BECAUSE SHE WAS GOING TO GIVE UP WHEN THINGS GOT TOUGH!"

    Go Hillary!

    Go Hillary. We are going to go all the way.

    Like at who support Obama, a big margin on age 17-24. My God. We do not need some one who can excite the majority of those aged people while leave the rest out.

    Clinton, the more you stay, the bigger the blow you'll get.

    You Decide. 2008.

    BLACK MAN FOR HILLARY- She can have your vote. You are probably one of the broke down brothas, anyway.

    I watched Obama speak and you are lying!!! Uncle Tom.

    Did Hillary actually claim the FLORIDA primary as one of her "wins" in the battleground states during her speech tonight?! Wasn't she the only on the ballot? Unbelievable.

    Why can't CNN be more positive about Obama?

    If the democrats nominate Hillary – then we are doomed. She has successfully divided the party for her self serving purpose. Hillary supporters seem to have forgotten she will need Obama voters in November.

    The republicans are salivating over the fact the Democrats found yet one more way to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory. As a democrat – all I can say is unbelievable. I am disgusted by my own party.

    If Hillary wins – I will vote Nader in protest – and 90% of Obama supporters feel the same. So enjoy your victory and thanks for shooting the democratic party in the head.
