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!”

    While Obama shows restraint for the good of the party, and by corrolary for the good of the party, Clinton piles on with self-aggrandizing emasculation. Superdelegates, how about a little courage?!?!

    We'll wait and see just how this will play out. When the popular vote goes to Obama and the "loser-delagates" sway the scales, we'll all be in the middle of exactly what the democrats cried foul in the Geo. Bush fiasco. GOD helps us.............

    I think that says it all. Obama's slogan is "Yes we can" and Hillary's is "Yes SHE can". For Hillary, its all about Hillary, and nobody else.

    If Clinton wins the nomination, this country diserves another 9/11 for it's stupidity. I will certainly go for McCain because because then there will not be any differnce who is a president.

    I love how the New York Times's editorial ENDORSING SENATOR CLINTON didn't warrant a mention on CNN, but this critical editorial does. Your Obama bias is shameless.

    Too bad the electoral vote for Obama in Pennsylvania would be just as decisive.
