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."

    FLORIDA AND MICHIGAN 350 DELEGATES SHOVED TO THE BACK OF THE BUS.

    WHAT IS THE DEAL?

    IF FLORIDA AND MICHIGAN IS NOT PERMITTED THEIR AMERICAN RIGHT TO HAVE THEIR VOTES COUNTED, THEN SOMEONE HAS HIGHJACKED THE AMERICA DEMOCRATIC PHILOSOPHY.

    NEITHER CANDIDATE IS LEGITIMATE UNTIL FLORIDA AND MICHIGAN VOTERS HAVE THEIR PHYSICAL VOTES COUNTED JUST LIKE THE REST OF AMERICANS, IN THIS UNUSUAL PRIMARY YEAR...

    Jessica, Obama has nothing to do with the fact that MI and FL votes arent counted. Wake up and learn the facts. The DNC warned the states that their votes wouldn't count if the primaries were moved up, they were moved up and they paid the price. The DNC has stated that those states wont be allowed to determine the winner. Give your head a shake before you start ranting because you are sad Hillary has lost.

    Jessica honey..... this old grandma is supporting Obama because he's the real deal. Honest, intelligent and strong. You must be listening to Clinton lies, reinforced with her bobbing head.... they took a course on how to brainwash people when Bill ran for office, the bobbing head is reinforcement technique. How's it feel to be one of their 'subjects? Another thing, Obama has NOT refused a revote in the two states. Another Clinton fabrication.... after reading all of your post, I have come to the conclusion, she has you under her spell..... Wake up honey, it's time to learn reality. Clinton lies to get votes

    Obama won by 14 points over Hillary in North Carolina. A large majority of those voters were white. 14 points – double digits! How do you like them apples, Hillary?

    Questionable politics. First Florida in 2004. Now Obama's home turf in 2008. It sours my faith in the honesty of our voting system. What is going on in Gary? Something's rotten in "Denmark".

    Clinton alway say she won the "Battleground" states, so do that really mean all votes really count. This mean you won the states that matter and thats not a good statement. How you claim victory before all the votes are counted. This goes against your speech that all votes matter when come to reason to count MI and FL.

    I am a 25 year old registered Republican and a NYC public school administrator. I am impressed with what Barack Obama has done and he has my vote in November. One problem that I have is with Hillary Clinton telling Americans that every vote should count but turning to the delegates and saying that I can run better in November. With that comment, I dont feel that my vote does count because many more Americans have voted for Obama. If Hillary takes her advice then Obama is the clean nominee. Hillary needs to stop saying our votes should count then tell the superdelegates that they should go against us. TWO FACED.

    Clinton sounds very gracious. I really admire how hard she fought for the nomination. She's been tireless. It's time for us to unite to defeat McCain and the neocons in November!! Yes we can!!

    If it's going to be "more of the same" then why is she using republican playbook on another democrat!

    Unlike Clinton supporters, I, a Obama supporter will vote for Hillary if she's the candidate. I'm not spiteful! I know my values and principles and beliefs and what this country needs. I'm not a Benedict Arnold! Tonight, it looks like Obama will get nomination. But, if McCain wins at least we Democrats got the candidate we wanted and he has run a respectable campaign that we can be proud of.

    Can the clinton campaign say the same?

    For all the conspiracy theorists out there, it's taking a long time because of the high number of absentee ballots, which are not machine counted.

    Chill out, go grab a beer and settle in. It'll probably be tomorrow until the final results are in, and if it's as close as it looks to be, there may well be a recount. Remember the Texas primary? That wasn't finalized for a few days.

    Well look at the company you keep...

    Look how the anger little man Thomas McDermott show his unkind attitude... face red, tone naste and he's a mayor commenting on television like that... and he's for HIllary... He is one who needed to vote for Obama... He REALLY needs change. Or he needs to take a sit on the stool...because he is full of himself as is the folks in Indiana. A state who is known for their prejudice views.
