Clinton predicts more 'twists and turns'

 Clinton campaigned in Montana Sunday.
Clinton campaigned in Montana Sunday.

MISSOULA, Montana (CNN) – Hillary Clinton on Sunday predicted “more twists and turns” in the primary battle with Barack Obama during a campaign event in Montana - one of the last two states to weigh in on the Democratic presidential race on June 3.

At a town hall meeting in Missoula, the senator from New York said the race is so close that “we don’t know how it is going to turn out.”

"This campaign has been exciting and incredibly energizing - for people all across the country - and I believe with all my heart that it is good for the Democratic Party to give the people of Montana a chance to vote in June, to have your vote counted and your voices heard," she also said.

While listing her credentials to be president, Clinton also said people vote for different reasons, including how a person looks or their hairstyle.

"And that is another difference, you know how long it takes me to get ready than my two opponents - I mean really just think about it," she joked. "I think I should get points for working as hard as I do plus the time it takes to get ready."

    now that she's thru playing the race card for all its worth she pulls the gender card, or perhaps she's subliminally reminding folks that obama is black and she is white.

    Incredible

    I thought that "little" states weren't important, Hillary?

    Okay, I like a candidate with a sense of humor as much as the next guy, but it doesn't add to Sen. Clinton's credibility to joke that she should get points because it takes her longer to get ready. Of course with how things are going for her right now, her sense of humor is about all she has to campaign with.

    Efforts are appreciated, but only performance counts when it comes to the Oval Office. Voters are no longer as stupid as before. We don't really care what hairstyle Hillary has over her head. It's what's under that we are worried about.

    clinton and all the media say its a close race i dont think so obama is ahead with 130 delegates and 700 000 votes so i dont believe its a close race clinton is way behind period, thats why she is coming up with these lies about the poor pregnant women why tell lies, it shows you that the clintons can do anything to win,

    The difference is simple. She lies, gets caught and blames someone else. Obama at least stands up and takes accountability. She plays the gender card,the everybody is picking on me, but in the background she is twisting the truth to make her look better, with her sleazeball husband as a willing accomplice. WAKE UP AMERICA! This is no presidential person.

    Obama has run a strong, efficient fiscally responsible campaign. His organization has been stellar.Clinton's campaign has been a disaster from day one. Its obvious Obama is the best candidate,

    People vote for different reasons, but I hope being good at lying is not one of the reasons.

    Remember Obama fans, it's a long time until the convention and anything can happen. Maybe CNN will start doing their job and do a little investigating of Mr. Obama. This guy has gotten a free ride so far and everyone is tired of it. Even if he gets the Dem's nod he can't win the general election. Reverend Wright has spoken so get over it.

    I never agreed with Sen.Clinton with may of her points.

    But this one I agree, "There are many unexpected twists and turns in this election season for sure".

    I wish we can have a dream ticket and win in majority

    The only TWISTS are in her soul! A seriously twisted human being! Just watched HILLARY: THE MOVIE on Youtube and I don't know why anyone would want to vote for such a conniving, lying, manipulating hypocrite. She did a lot of horrible things to people and ruined families, and all that as a first lady. Imagine what she will do on day 1 as president! I can't fathom the thought. Please God, anyone but Hillary.

    Obama 08, PLEASE!

    Hey all you Obama lovers. If "Hillary'08" does not make it then "McCain '08" will. Take that to the bank.

  25. Pathetic Hillary

    She gets whackier by the day. Would the people of Pennsylvannia please take her out of misery. Your children and the educated can clearly see that Obama is the only leader who can being change. Don't take their hope away like the Clintons took away your jobs via NATFA. You vote for the Clintons you get what you deserve: jobless.
