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!”

    Looks like a 10 point win was all that was needed to quite all the doubters. HILL is the best candidate. People cought up with No-Bama's "hope" and "change" and are no longer fooled by an empty suite...

    Hope she doesn't start crying again when she loses badly in NC.

    National Polls Barack Obama 51% Hillary Clinton 41%

    Director Michael Moore has endorsed Obama calling the Clinton's "digusting"!

    Director Michael Moore is a former Clinton "friend"!

    ... actually they responded "yes she will" not "yes she can". Take the time and listen before reporting. Oh... and "NO SHE WONT".

    We always listen to Hillary, and we always choose you, because you are a champ, a doer, a solver, and a solution.

    Yep, you listened, all you gullible fools, and you chose the one candidate who has proven herself to be a pathological liar again and again and again and again...

    Don't give up Hillary! We trust that you can get the job done! Hillary has been strong and has not given up even when her chances looked bad. That is something to take into consideration.

    Go Hillary!

    I guess Ed Rendell knew what he was talking about back in Feb:

    “You’ve got conservative whites here, and I think there are some whites who are probably not ready to vote for an African-American candidate."

    In the words of the Smokey and the Bandit theme song: "We've got a long way to go and a short time to get there. We're gonna do what they say can't be done."

    Rise Hillary, Rise!!!!

    CNN is anti-Obama. Well, the rest of the country is Pro-Obama. Wait and see.
