    Guess it's a little more than 6 Obamanites. "DO THE MATH," Oh, and don't forget the popular vote gain of 200,000. See you in Indiana.

    It's sad people in PA did not see this outcome. What a waste of the money and efforts.

    In a prolonged campain, Obama failed. He was not able to sell his television evangelist message of intangables (hope, change) to a more astute electorate. The country has not seen this type of intangable message candidate since Huey Long or William Jennings Bryant. This is why the younger/inexperienced voters are flocking to Obama. In a protracted campain these Obama shortcomings are very apparent.

    Wow – so after 6 weeks of misery, backbiting, and negativity, she got 14 extra pledged delegates. And he STILL leads by 154. And PA was the biggest state with the most delegates left. And so you can't catch up.

    Way to go HRC. Keep it up – you may not only wreck the election this year, when we have a republican president with the lowest approval rating ever, but you might actually destroy the democratic party too.

IF SHE CAN NOT GAIN A LOT OF DELEGATES IN PENNSYLVANIA STATE THAT WAS TAILER MADE FOR HERE HOW IS SHE GOING TO CATCH UP TO OBAMA WITH THE REMAINING CONTESTS. CNN YOU NEED TO HIRE SOME ONE WITH A MATH MAJOR.

    If you use the delegate counter you will see that giving Hillary better chance than she may have, she will still need 75-80% of the super delegates. Can she do it?

    Her claim to fame will be popular vote, but why isn't anyone pointing out that the popular vote is not accurate. It does not include caucuses. She gets her way every time. Its time for these type of tactics, win to win, vs, running on merits and winning because people want you, by the rules, to stop.

    Obama will make it. It will happen.

    Here is the official results from PA Secretary of State

    Clinton 54.3% 1,237,696

    Obama 45.7% 1,043,174

    Spread 8.6% 194,522

    The question is why is the media reporting double-digit?

  21. FNJ in Pa

    Never will vote for you HIllary. I would rather not vote at all. You are tearing your party apart for personal gain and your personal agenda. You think your entitled to win this election. You are an arrogant woman and I am so annoyed with your mocking "yes we will chants" and your attempts to make Sen Obama look stupid. Your lucky so much of PA is old racist people. People who have screwed over the city I live in with their ignorance.

  24. mike concerned democrate

    Yes and Clinton and all CNN reporters keep saying Clinton won Texas when IN FACT OBAMA WON MORE OVERALL DELAGATES (Primary and caucus) than ClintoN SO WHO REALLY WON TEXAS– OF COURSE OBAMA as it is only the delegate count that has real value – why show the distinction in Penn. when you did not and continue not to in Texas??????

    Ok Obamanots don’t panic. Hillary was expected to win by 10 points. She had a 30-point lead just a month ago. The Clinton name has been a staple in PENN for years. The demographic was her own. Even if he spent lots of money there it was an up hill battle and he knocked 20 points off of her lead. She had the endorsement of mayors, the governors, and Rep Murtha. Still, a Jr. Sen. from ILL was able to bleed her into debt and bog her down as he campaigned in Indiana, ran commercials in NC and also Oregon. So now Obama must:
    Continue the sharp retorts against Clinton without going Nuclear
    Show he can fight and still stay on message
    Get out the vote in Indy, as it is also a Clinton demo.
    Continue to raise money
