Clinton: 'You listened and today you chose'


Watch Sen. Clinton's Pennsylvania victory speech.

(CNN) – Sen. Hillary Clinton claimed her Pennsylvania primary victory Tuesday night, telling Pennsylvanians that “you listened and today you chose.”

“It’s a long road to 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. and it runs right through the heart of Pennsylvania,” Clinton also told her supporters as they cheered.

Clinton also said Tuesday that the “stakes are high and the challenges are great” but “the possibilities are endless.” The audience responded by co-opting a trademark phrase of Sen. Barack Obama’s campaign; Clinton supporters shouted “Yes she can! Yes she can!”

    I want to thank John King for making the case that the votes in Florida and Michigan should count. If Obama was stupid enough to think he could play by the rules it just underscores that he can't be president

    Hillary lost me 6 months ago and their isn't a prayer that I'd vote for her if she steals the nomination (or ever thereafter)...

    Obama must answer why he cannot win the big states and why he is afraid to Debate Hillary Clinton.

  13. Yes we can!

    Absolutely correct, Yes we did choose, Obama has won more states, more popular overall vote, more pledge delegates and on June 3rd he will still be ahead.....

    Did Obama's premature concession of a Clinton victory cause Clinton's 10% victory margin?
    i think it was an error.
    He will still take the nomination, because for one simple reason, he is the best candidate ever to face the electorate. He is America and the world's only hope.
    Clinton's politics of decadence must be stopped...at all cost.

    They 'listened' to Fat Boy Rendell and Philly's new joke of a mayor.

    Now I know why McCain was dancing last night. He already knew that Hillary would be his new dancing partner in the Fall.

    Two great choices. American can't lose with either.

    Country first, party last.

    This madness need to stop and stop now. How can primaries go on forever?
    Hillary has nothing to loose that is why she keep going and going.

    It is over Hillary. Actually I commend Obama. He went to Penn. and made inroads with almost a million voters.
    Thank you Bob casey for your hard work. Clintons are arrogant, divisive,polaring and all about themselves.
    It is time for Hillary to drop out and stop hurting Obama!
