Clinton predicts more 'twists and turns'

[cnn-photo-caption image= http://i.cdn.turner.com/cnn/2008/images/04/06/art.clintonmontana.ap.jpg caption=" Clinton campaigned in Montana Sunday."]

MISSOULA, Montana (CNN) - Hillary Clinton on Sunday predicted “more twists and turns” in the primary battle with Barack Obama during a campaign event in Montana - one of the last two states to weigh in on the Democratic presidential race on June 3.

At a town hall meeting in Missoula, the senator from New York said the race is so close that “we don’t know how it is going to turn out.”

"This campaign has been exciting and incredibly energizing - for people all across the country - and I believe with all my heart that it is good for the Democratic Party to give the people of Montana a chance to vote in June, to have your vote counted and your voices heard," she also said.

While listing her credentials to be president, Clinton also said people vote for different reasons, including how a person looks or their hairstyle.

"And that is another difference, you know how long it takes me to get ready than my two opponents - I mean really just think about it," she joked. "I think I should get points for working as hard as I do plus the time it takes to get ready."

    If she want points for her attire, she should re-think those pants suite she wears becasue they are not all that attractive.

    If she has to take so much time to get ready, won't this distract her from the job in the White House? lol

    I'm not confident that the primary battle with naturally have "more twists and turns" as a result of the voters having their say. Instead, I foresee that the Clinton machine will do everything in its power to introduce more "twists and turns" in this campaign than a clown making balloon animals at a kid's birthday party.

    Is she saying she should win the nomination because its takes her longer to get ready in the morning? I guess sexism is wrong unless its in her favor. Vote for me women of the world because you know how hard it is getting ready to go to work. How did she get ready so fast to take that 3am call on the economy?

    I think the world is looking for real change and Obama is liked around the world more than the other candidates.

    That said, Hillary would be people's second choice – no question about it. I just hope her "twists and turns" don't amount to more kitchen sink tactics. It will hurt her in the end.

    Its not only the US that is suffering from the fatigue of war – we are all tired of the US "crying wolf" – we are starting not to listen any more. Your president is a joke – and electing McCain will only continue the downward fall in your international reputation.

    I am neither a Democrat nor a Republican; therefore, as an Independent I have no allegiance to either party. In truth, I have voted in many presidential primaries and subsequent general elections.

    This presidential cycle marks the first time that I have voted for a Democratic candidate.

    I voted for Barack Obama in both the Texas primary and caucus because I believe in his candidacy for a myriad of reasons.

    However, I will not vote for a Democrat in the general election if Senator Obama looses the party nomination due to poor party leadership and unethical backroom dealings.

    In fact, I will not vote for Hillary Clinton under ANY circumstances!

    It's 3 a.m. and the phone is ringing in the white house, but Hillary can't answer it just yet, she has to put her makeup on and do her hair first...

    You know people, I've been thinking about it, and I really think we shouldn't be so hard on Hillary Clinton for not speaking the truth about the Bosnia sniper fire, the Ohio hospital story, and all of the other times the truth has gotten in her way. We must remember that she is a Clinton, and the Clintons are never to blame.

    No, we should instead blame the truth for trying to get in the way of the inevitable Hillary Clinton nomination. How dare the truth try to steal this nomination from Mrs. Rodham Clinton? The truth clearly hates women, hates white people, is a naive hopemonger, and is undemocratic. The truth also fails to understand that Hillary Clinton is the only one who is ready on day one, and the only one who can pick up the phone at 3 AM to deal with the evil banks foreclosing on people's homes after standard banking hours.

    The truth had no right getting involved in the Democratic nomination, because the truth is not even a Democrat, nor is the truth from a big blue state, nor is the truth a pro-Clinton superdelegate. The truth is nothing more than another Judas like Bill Richardson. The truth is nothing more than a John McCain supporter who happens to be a member of the vast right wing conspiracy against Hillary Clinton.

    We must not allow the truth to get in the way of Hillary Clinton. If there is anything the Clintons have taught us, it is that the truth is wrong. We must not let the truth win.

    Screw the truth. After all, if the truth is against you, why should you speak the truth? That would be like selling out to the Republicans.

    Hillary Clinton '08

    She cannot control her husband, her chief strategist, and even her own mouth! How can anyone believe that she is ready on day one?

    She cannot even run a credible campaign! Where is her "experience?"

    Hillary tells a typical lie,
    Barack tells a lie,
    Hillary tells a lie,
    Barack tells a lie.

    The truth. They are both liars.

    Hillary has had to admit to another fabricated story and her chief strategist has left the campaign. I'd say that the next turn for her is out of this race.
