Clinton, off the trail and on the dance floor

CNN

Watch Hillary Clinton dance with a choir in Pennsylvania

(CNN)—Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton began a two day sweep through Pennsylvania Monday.

While in Cranston, the New York senator took a step back from serious campaigning and showed off some her dance moves with a local choir.

After today’s vote in Mississippi, Pennsylvania’s April 22 primary is the next critical Democratic contest with 158 delegates up for grabs.

    Can anyone calculate the voters state by state? I do think Hillary won more voters but less delegates now. Because in the big state, a pledged delegate represents more voters than in the small state. And in the primary, a pledged delegate represents more voters than in the caucuse.

    Hillary Clinton and Mitt Romney should be the next reality dance show contestants. He can let the dogs out and she can scare them into voting for her!

    This lady is a mess. Her administration is going to owe out so many favors that she won't be able to do anything. Why is the governor of PA and the governor of NJ both who have endorsed pushing so hard for their to be a recount in Florida and Michigan. Why didn't they speak up when all of this foolishness was taking place. Why didn't she stand up and say I am not going to sign this because this is stupid and voters should be counted. I will tell you why she and they thought she was inevitable. No one expected a Barack Obama and so now they are trying to cheat.

    I think that she could care less about the American people. I think that this is all about her ego. Look at the people surrounding her this is not her first and it won't be the last scandal of someone endorsing her.

    Have you ever heard of a Democrat or a Republican endorse a candidate from an opposite party before while the race was still going on. She fills if she can't win no democrat will win. And this man is suppose to pick this evil, backstabbing, coniving, vicious, & monstrous person to be his number two. Think realisticly in real life terms would you want someone like that guarding your back.

    She's got no other choice but to dance. Pennsylvania may be her last stand.

    The Clintons kitchen sink strategy? The bathroom toilet strategy sounds more appropriate. This famous family keeps hitting new lows.

    How can Barack be unqualified one week but qualified the next? It doesn't have to do with his lead, does it? Just as we thought, throw the guy a carrot and hope everyone believes you.

    And Geraldine Ferrarro's comments are just plain stupid. Barack attracts packed crowds everywhere he goes. Is that because he's black, semi-black, a muslim? She represents a past generation that doesn't get it. No wonder this country has had its heads planted in the sand.

    My next question for the Clintons is this:

    Since you can't accept defeat, will you promise not to bolt the party, ala Joe Lieberman?

    That was awesome! And, of course we all know what's going to happen.
    Obama copies everything Hillary say, and now we will be waiting for someone in the Obama campaign or supporters to copy something like this. Tipical mentality.

    She's totally red in the face and made efforts to turn away from the camera. She came off as embarrased by the whole thing. The kids seemed to have a great time though.

    Wow- the attacks that come from just a little dance video! Just shows how easily hateful spin can develop from absolutely nothing!

    HILLARY 2008!

    another clinton-republican similarity. they both like to dance for the cameras. clinton may as well seek endorsement from Bush and McCain. She is doing their job for them in tearing down our strongest candidate. SHAME ON YOU HILLARY you make us sick. No one in my family would vote for you – we would rather NOT VOTE AT ALL

    That's dancing?

    She's standing there clapping with her mouth gaping open like some drone.

    Who cares?

    Why don't you skip this silly stuff and tell us more about John McCain pulling strings to get the air tanker contract away from Boeing so that his spear carriers could get the deal for Airbus.

    How many Americans are going to lose their jobs over that little heist?

    You call that dancing? More like an over ripe pair wiggling in the fall breeze..

    To joanna,
    you can find multiple websites that have the cumulative popular vote up til now. For some reason CNN is not one of them. I think realclearpolitics is one, just google 2008 primary popular vote. And by the way, Obama is ahead. I'm not as hopeful as most of his supporters, I still think there is plenty of time for Hilary to steal the nomination. You go girl!!!

    Hillary did not dance, she merely embedded herself among the kids, nodded her head a few times and clapped out of rhythm. Plus, she did not submit herself to the discipline of the group. Does anyone notice how plastic her smile was? Follow the sequence and you would see her turning away from the camera when she was supposed to be doing the routine. Maybe this is not be best way to show off her dancing skills, that is, if she's got any.
