Clinton: 'I don't quit'

[cnn-photo-caption image= http://i.cdn.turner.com/cnn/2008/images/04/05/art.clintonor.ap.jpg caption="Clinton campaigned in Oregon."] HILLSBORO, Oregon (CNN) - Hillary Clinton repeated her intentions to stay in the presidential race at a campaign event in Oregon Saturday.

“One thing I hope you know about me is that I don’t quit,” Clinton said, adding she will continue to campaign “hard” in the final ten primaries.

Clinton also again pushed seating the delegates from Florida and Michigan - the two states penalized by the Democratic National Committee for moving their primaries ahead of February 5.

“Some say their votes should be ignored, and discounted…well I have a different view.”

Clinton added that ignoring the 2.3 million democrats who voted in those primaries would hurt in November: “We cannot afford to give up on Michigan and Florida.”

    That fact that Clinton even thinks that she has a chance is the media's fault. The media keeps egging her on and has allowed two stupid Saturday Night Live skits dictate how she should be treated. The Mark Penn story, when read in conjunction with her "outrage" at NAFTAgate (which has since proven to be an absolute farce), should be front and center on the news, but it is buried in the ticker. I haven't heard not one single political show on any station address this in detail. Wright isn't even paid by the Obama campaign (as wasn't Powers), but yet Penn, who is paid millions by the Clinton campaign, is going under the radar. It's absolutely outrageous.

    it's too bad the democrats are falling for the republicans old dirty tactics. no one ever talks about crossover voters, and that is what the republicans are doing voting for Obama now, because the republicans know that McCain has no chance against Hillary. Why does Obama have all this money? Thanks to all those rich republicans who fear Hillary.

    I like both candidates, but Hillary has my vote, because that is who republicans fear the most. And as for all those people and the media saying that if their candidate doesn't win they will vote republican, that is bull because once a democrat always a democrat until the end.

    So, to all democrats don't let the republicans divide us, and to young people thanks for voting. You learn from your mistakes, but don't ever give up. You will all learn that your vote does count

    Go Hillary, wish you well on your race to the Whitehouse

    I believe that Senator Obama should practice what he preaches. He is not being fair to the people of Florida and Michigan. How can he be awarded the nomination when all these votes are not counted and calling on Clinton to quit. Because she is a woman they are trying to push her out of the way,but she is not just a woman . She is strong ,she is a fighter, she is knowledgeable well poised, very smart, great on foreign policies and does not have to depend on her husband to lead her. She is a true caring and dedicated American who would represent us well at home and all over the world. He might not say it aloud for her to quit but actions speaks louder than voice. Let us judge Hillary on her own merits She is well qualified to be our First female President of the USA. COUNT OUR VOTES IN FLORIDA AND MICHIGAN. This is democracy. GOD BLESS AMERICA. GL

    Well, Clinton should leave now. Another story she's been using on the campaign trail - about a girl dying in Ohio - has been found to be completely untrue.
