(CNN) - Clinton campaign manager Maggie Williams issued the following statement:
"We congratulate Senator Obama for his win in Mississippi and thank our supporters and volunteers there for their support, hard work, and long hours. Now we look forward to campaigning in Pennsylvania and around the country as this campaign continues."
Wow, she actually said congratulations for ONCE. Amazing.
Very good. This is how to play the game. Both of you still belong to one party. STOP FLIGHTING.
OMG..Hillary can NEVER do anything right for Obama's cult!
wait, is maggie saying hillary campaigned in mississippi? last i checked she didn't even visit.
Maybe Maggie should of added Hillary will drop out in she does not win Pennsylvania by 30 points since it is a Clinton state. Remember Bill and James The Clown Carville said if she did not win Texas she could no go forward. Well I got news SHE LOST TEXAS. Obama received more delagates.
Hillary is just too busy or Mississippi is not that important!
Hillary cant win, and Obama isnt going to select her as Vice-President. What is she fighting for? She can only hurt the party at this point.
Clinton/Mccain08 have just lost my vote. True democrats will not nominate a traitor. God knows.
Ok I have to applauded them for good sportsmanship for the first time in a while.
Can you congratulate someone with one finger?
First No surprise, Mississippi, has always been divided by color lines. Second! DO HILLARY SUPPORTERS, REALLY BELIEVE NY, NJ, MS, CA, WILL NOT BE BLUE IN NOVEMBER? Please, her argument tht she has won the big states does not fly. She didn't even win big in those states. Obama, has the chance of pulling in republicans and independents. HE WON WITH WHITE VOTE IN ALL THOSE MIDWEST STATES, NOT AFRICN-AMERICANS. Hillary cannot draw republican or independents, and we need to think about what is best for the party. NOT OUR EGOS OR BIRTH RIGHT!
This is the first time I have read Clinton congratulating Obama this quickly on a win by him. Man, she's got to be serious about this 'dream ticket' idea!
Can someone please explain the statement made by a poster here that "Obama plays the race card like a fiddle." When has Obama ever made his race an issue? Hillary and her supporters have made gender and race an issue throughout this campaign. I see the writing on the wall here. I was hoping that the younger generation could serve as an example for the rest of us... It's not about the color of that man's skin. It's about the fact that most folk in America that voted for him did so because they believe him to be better qualified.
Congratulations to hillary and her camp. I have never been a racial situation until now. I would like to thank her for bringing out the true feelings of the mentality of the people in south. I thought America had gotten a couple of rings up the ladder until this race.
I'm positive you will get the nomination and I hope that it goes the way you would like for it to with the white and latino votes. I am so disappointed in all the race baiting that I will NEVER vote democrat again in my life.
iT'S ABOUT TIME THEY CONGRATULATE HIM!
I'M DISTRESSED BY CNN TURNING HIS WIN INTO A RACE ISSUE. YES, WE HAVE A HORRID HISTORY OF RACISM IN THIS COUNTRY, AND OF COURSE VERY MUCH SO IN MISSISSIPPI, BUT TO SAY THIS ELECTION IS BECOMING MORE ABOUT RACE IGNORES THE FACT THAT OBAMA JUST WON WYOMING, A VERY WHITE STATE INDEED.
PLEASE STOP WITH THE RACE BAITING
Karl i agree with every word of this!!!!!!^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
Nice try Clinton campaign. No need to start congratulating now that your "McCain is better" tactic blew up in your face. Back out now while you still have your dignity. I'm sure Bill is Client #1 and has the Emperor's VIP Club on speed dial. It's 3am, Hillary. Where is your husband?
Thank you, Maggie.
Yes, on to Pennsylvania. Keep it clean please.
Perhaps now, Hillary will consider what so many democrats are hoping for, that she will gracefully bow out of this race and halt the ongoing division in the democratic party that will give McCain the edge in the general election. We need the party to come together and support one candidate, and that should be Obama!
Jay in Kansas – Don't forget all the horrible things she did in the 80's & 90's... and she sold us out on her Healthcare promises in the 90's. They paid her off, and she'll do it again. Don't be an ostrich man.
To Tom Grippe, CNN waited until long after the polls were closed before reporting anything. They called the race based on a combination of exit polls affirmed by early returns.
Do your research before you make up stuff people. Hillary (and BO) have always congratulated each other for each state – via televised speech or statement issued or telephone call.
STOP SPREADING MISINFORMATION
Hillary Clinton will win the democratic nomination in spite of all this Obamamania. When the veil of Obama the hero falls (and it will fall) we will see Obama the man, and we don't know really know what we'll see. And that's the scarry part.
She is so fake. I thought that small states don't matter, please make up your mind.
From an interested Aussie – Go Obama, you are doing your nation proud and will finally bring some balance to the 'United' States.
Hillary wont congratulate him herself because of that same ego that wont let her bow out gracefully
CNN STOP THE RACE BAITING, OABAMA WON WHITE STATES TOO....STOP OR I WILL GO TO THE OTHER NETWORKS WITH WHAT YOU GUYS ARE DOING!!!!!!!
