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."

    clinton has received more money from industry–defense, healthcare, insurance, financial, oil–than any other candidate, and she thinks she deserves points for her hairstyle? that poor $110 million victim.... she voted to allow my bank to charge up to 30% interest on my credit card, so she gets no props from me.

    I have to say, she really isn't endearing enough to get away with the lame jokes she keeps telling. Maybe she should spend less time getting made up and more time fact-checking her stories.

    Actually, the race isn't close and we know exactly how it will turn out. It's just a matter of how long it takes before we can finally nominate Obama.

    Hillary is cautioning in advance about more twists and turns in the campaign. Means, more secretive and ugly tactics by her...?
    We are tired of her all these tactics, lies, distortion and specially exaggerating her little experience just aa a first lady. Hillary, please try to respect the party's rules and quit gracefully.

    OBAMA 2008...!!!!!

    Hang in there, don't worry about the "Old Boys Club" your our pick. Must have the voters in Florida in Michigan votes to count, otherwise we are in big trouble for a general.

    Go Hillary Go!

    She can go out and act out her dream as long as she likes for our entertainment until the sunset . She is a talented actor. The only way she can win now is to cheat the voters.

    Wow...a shining example for feminists everywhere...is she really discussing how long it takes her to get ready compared to the men candidates?

    I guess she has to distract attention from the Penn situation, the inaccurate hospital story she's told in her stump speech, and the "mispeak" about sniper fire in Bosnia any way she can...

    Whatever it takes...

    OBAMA '08

    yes we know more attacks on Obama. nothing left for republicans to attack Obama. can anybody tell me how a candidate who is behind by 700,000 popular votes can win nomination. you have a long held ambition it is very hard to accept defeat. Replicans in PA are openly saying that that crosssed over to vote for Clinton to prolong the primary. that didnt become news here in CNN. so strange.

    I'm pretty sure it takes Mccain longer to comb his hair in the morning than it takes Hillary. McCain IS an actual war hero with genuine war experiences (including broken bones that now hamper his ability to raise his arms above his head), as opposed to the "snipper experiences" of a delusional presidential candidate.

    Clinton predicts more "twists and turns", in other words, she'll continue throwing the kitchen sink at Obama, WWE-style, and see what sticks. Getting Bill and other surrogates to do the dirty work. framing Obama as the black candidate (or worse). Blaming the media for being unfair to her campaign and always "asking her the first question". Fighting against the "disenfranchisement" of Michigan and Florida primary voters at the same time she insists that all the pledged delegates produced by primaries and caucuses to date are up for grabs. Pretending that she had a substantive role in dealing with foreign leaders during Bill's administration. Making up stories to make herself look heroic. Claiming she has "fought for working men and women" for 35 years, when in fact many of those years were spent in the service of Wal-Mart Corporation, infamous for union-busting and buying cheap goods from China. And did she mention that she was a woman, all you female voters out there, nudge nudge? Hey, it's really unfair, isn't it! Maybe she'll cry again the day before the PA primary, for those who were slow to pick it up.

    Then Bill will pitch in with his patented rants, Obama's opposition to the Iraq war was a fairy tale, Richardson promised him 5 times to his face he wouldn't endorse Obama, etc. More lies! But he was POTUS, so people pay attention.

    Send this couple back to Arkansas already, where they belong.

    How long will Hillary continue to coax for votes by using her gender, in reference to her comment about she should get points since she needs more time (as a woman) to get ready? Get real! On the Ellen Show, she brought up the gender card again stating that as a woman she needs to be strong and not be bullied out of the race. If Obama was to use the race card to justify his support, he would be criticized heavily and appear to be playing victim. I know that its tough for both to face the criticism and bigotry of being either a woman or non-caucasian in such an important process, but to play the victim only feeds into the bigotry and prejudice, in hopes to seek pity or support. Rather she should just stand strong and be transcendent like Obama....people stand behand those principles.
