Clinton: GOP win in November 'more of the same'

CNN

Watch a clip of Sen. Clinton's speech Tuesday night in Indiana.

INDIANAPOLIS, Indiana (CNN) - Hillary Clinton claimed victory Tuesday in the Indiana Democratic presidential primary, but pledged to work for the eventual Democratic nominee "no matter what happens."

CNN has not projected a winner in Indiana because the race between Clinton and rival Barack Obama, who won Tuesday's North Carolina primary, remains tight.

"We know how desperately people want to see a change, and it will not be a change if the Republicans keep the White House," the New York senator said. "It will be more of the same - something that no one, no matter what political party you may be, can afford."

    I think it is now time for Hillary to step aside. She has done her best but it is too close. Obama is a black man thus making him a strong contender in a time when a call for political correctness is at an all time high. I seriously doubt that the majority of America that votes in the general election will vote in Obama, a man who has little experience and who has set before a minister for 20 years that preaches hate against this great country of ours and against the white man. Many Obama supporters say "now let's not make this about race" but the truth is Rev. Wright has made it about race and the 90% black voters have obviously made it about race.
    Obama will not win in November, thus giving the Republicans 4 more years. THEN America will be so tired of Republicans that Hillary can come back in 2012 and be the President we need!!

    My vote this fall will go to McCain. I will choose experience over race any day.

    With all due respect, the numbers are not in her favor, the people dislike her, the few wins she has had is because of Limbaugh's operation chaos,

    someone please tell her to leave now................. it is not her turn to run, we will eventually have a woman president, but it will someone who has earned it in her own right, not her husband, it will be someone honest, who represents people not her own desire for power and desire to continue a clinton legacy. This is a democracy not a dynasty.......

    Please Senator clinton leave now...............

    I' Live in Northwest Indiana, and let me tell you the obama campaign has run war dialers, in the past 2 weeks i've gotten over 30 phonecalls from his campaign, and only one from clinton's campaign. Unfortuantely, many of the voters in this area do work in Chicago and the suburban regions through there, where crime bosses run rampid- I have no problem with voting for an African American, but I will not vote for a scurvy yellow belly corrupt backed by criminals politicians.

    Nannie – thank you for checking Venus and Amy Iowa. I don't believe they are democarts. My Repub friends and family members who read these blogs believe that the Obama supporters are real hateful bunch – they attack anyone who is not for Obama. Bitter Tommy you can't stand the truth – ddi you not read the attacks on the Edwards for not endorsing a candidate?

    MATHEMATICALLY HILLARY CANNOT WIN. SHE NEEDS ALL REMAINING STATES INCLUDING NC AND INDIANA GO TO HER 70%.

    OR SHE NEEDS 75% OF SUPER DELEGATES WITH 50% OF ALL TEH REMAINING STATES. THEN SHE CAN REACH THE MAGIC NUMBER, BUT SHE CANNOT OVERTAKE OBAMA. WITH 25% SUPERDELEGATES AND 50% OF REMAINING STATES OBAMA WILL STILL AHEAD.

    A MATH TEACHER FOR OBAMA

    Please don't pity Hillary. Hillary has proven she is the real winner and the Wright affect is unfortunately not over as it did not impact the early votes, which amounted to nearly 30% of all the votes counted tonight.

    Claimed victory? Hillary claimed victory?" Wasn't that a bit premature? Eve if/when she wins, it's going to be less than 5%... That's a Clinton loss, a HUGE Clinton loss.

    Sen. Clinton supporters... she fought a GREAT fight! I suspect tomorrow the supers will close the deal.

    Hillary for VP? Hillary for health czar. Yep, yep, yep!

    Bitter Tommy – Obama didn't need to play dirty – the media did it for him. BTW, criticizing someone's record and policies is not playing dirty.

    Hillary I don't know why you think you are the one to beat McCain. I really do feel sorry for you. We need change,

    Yeah, she'll bring real change: who voted for the war? Who sat by the last 7 years and allowed this administration to spit on our rights and constitution? Who has accepted millions and millions of campaign contributions from insurance companies and PACs?
    She is more of the same despite her monotone rhetoric.
