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


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."

    Listen up Super Delegates, doesn't the fact that Rush Limbaugh encouraging his listeners to vote for Hillary send a message to you! The GOP cannot win an election against Obama, and they know it! Hillary has more negatives and baggage than any candidate in history! She will be a easy target for them in the fall! I believe that the super delegates should make their move starting tomorrow! Come on Gore! We know you cannot stand the Clinton's, make the first move! Edwards you better step up too!

    The GOP might be more of the same. But who does she think she's kidding? SHE is more of the same. Honestly, I don't know how this woman looks at herself in the mirror.

    Get out of this race now! Stop using Obama's lines!

    You have acted just like a republican with your negative and nasty campaign!

    Go Obama!

    Thanks North Carolina and thanks Indiana – even if you believed and gave Obama a small lead from Hillary!

    Did any one noticed how sad and shocked all the news-media looked tonight! (:

    Sounds like she is ready to get behind Obama to me. I hope she does cause we need to move past this and start attacking McCain.

    I just pray that it is not you that we have to look and listen to for four years . That is when it will be a crying shame to have you and billy boy in the house again.

    this woman is now copying Senator Obama's lines, and also
    she would not have come this far if it was not for limbaugh sending his troops, this is no lie, ask him and his supporters, they will tellyou,
    so the little margin she gained in OH, PA is thank you to Limbaugh
    if this does not tell you where she stands, forget it, then..........

    Hillary is just like George W. Bush; totally dishonest!

    Billary, does your experiences in math cause you anxiety? Have you been left with the impression that math is difficult and only some "delusional" people are 'good' at math? Are you one of those "un-hopeful" people who have the audacity to claim we 'can't do math?' Perhaps, you have the dreaded disease called Math Anxiety?

    Now we can dispell Billary's Math Myths and move on to the White House
    Thank you North Carolina!

    If we can't trust Hillary to follow her OWN PARTY'S RULES and she keeps pleading for Michigan and Florida to be counted then how can we trust her to follow any LAWS of the US? Do not be fooled by her screams that it is undemocratic to "take away the vote" from Michigan and Florida. It was and is a political party nomination, not an election!

    She claims that she is on the "fast track" to the white house with only 6% lead in Indiana. Ummm, should he hand her a calculator?

    I voted for Hillary. I want to see her win.

    Unfortunately, I can't vote for obama because I just don't like him. He wouldn't ever get my vote even on behalf of the democratic party. At least Mccain has more experience.

    I cannot vote for a big bag of wind.

    Toy Hillary has committed to go on and I strongly suggest her to do whatever necessary to please her "Boig Brothers". I truely wish to see Toy Hillary to win. I know best of my political experience and knowledge that no one Toy Hillary or Mechine has intellectual capacity to bring economic and international political stability. Let see how the Caucians bring peace in the world.

    Cue the Clinton-crybabies, trying to spin this night of more losing. Another night of elections, and another night where Obama takes home more votes and more delegates. Again. Like almost every single other election night in this cycle. She wins by a couple points, and he wins by 14%. Spin. Spin. Spin.

    Watching your TV coverage, and here go the Clintonites, talking about Florida, Michigan, "rural voters", "the stronger candidate" (despite losing popular vote, states, delegates – every metric that matters).

    bitter Obama fans

    May 6, 2008 11:13 pm at 11:13 pm |

    This is in response to the issue of why "conservatives" go more for Clinton (as usual the comments were closed for the previews post)

    Conservative democrats go for Clinton because she is more MODERATE!!!

    Obama is a left wing liberal nut – once the media reports this it will make sense.

    I am a moderate democrat and that is why I am attracted to Clinton (and even McCain), but Obama is TOO liberal

    I just want to point out the neo-conservatives are still trying to play games with the electorate. Hillary is obviously going to be the next president of the US. The black American core are soon going to see how they are being used to thwart a win in the election. Republicans crossing over to Clinton are not doing it to please the Rush Limbaughs or to be racist. They are doing it because they can see that she is what the world needs right now. Mr. Obama is a great guy, albeit untried, but he doesn't even come close to depth and breadth of the intelligence of this woman. Please black america realize that revenge against previous wrongs cannot be wiped out by hurting the best candidate you have ever had for your president. She cannot change the color of her skin!

    Hillary would have been much worse than "More of the same".

    Didn't she see her supporters saying goodbye to her tonight?

    We do want to have a woman president some day, but she has to run on her own merit.

    Hillary does not want to consolidate the party. If she did she would not be slinging mud regarding his spending and still talking about that stupid gas holiday garbage.

    Yeah, you folks deserve a leader like Obama.

    Whatever!!! Obama was copying all our former leaders and now he feels that he can unite the party. I have always been a loyal democrat BUT if Obama wins I will vote for McCain. Obama only stands for himself and what Wright has drilled in to in his head. Sorry but Obama is not the best canidate nor does he have a chance to beat McCain.

  24. joy

    why is it that no one is mentioning how Hillary Rodham-Clinton stuck to her husband's side with the Monica Lewinski scandal???

    In a way, the Wright scandal is similar but at least Obama did something about it where Hillary didn't...................

    Maybe it is time to pull that card out.
