    It's over and Barack is in. But remember that the Clintons are all about the endless and permanent campaign. A politically mortally wounded Obama sets her up for a 2012 contest against an extremely aged McCain who will have spent four years battling incredible foreign and domestic problems. Watch for the implementation by Billary of Plan "B" soon; the same kind of non-supportive "support" they gave Al Gore and John Kerry, while all the time doing everything they can under the table to shovel the ground out from under Obama.

    Congratulations Hillary!

    Now all the superdelegates from Pennsylvania need to endorse Hillary to follow the will of the voters.

    Most Americans living in poverty work, but still cannot afford to make ends meet.
    Is Mrs. Hillary Clinton a part of the problem?
    Where are the jobs Mrs Hillary Clinton promised Upstate New York?
    Can America trust Mrs. Hillary Clinton and is this another sniper fire in Bosnia campaign tale?

    Mr Obama can unite the DNC and win!

    A no vote for Mrs. Hillary Clinton is not a yes vote for Mr. McCain and Americans will vote!

    To Tim:

    You are just just too naive!

    Yeah. Primary is decided by our people. what decides Caucus? Is there any fraud in Caucus?

    Our people want to know why Obama can only win Caucus not primary!

    08 Hillary!

    This is so crazy.....Why doesn't CNN factor in the independents who were denied voting yesterday because they were told they needed to pick up a provisional ballot in order to vote last night. What a scam they should have been told days or weeks before the PA primary. Clinton can spin all she wants but it was not a 10% win more like 8%. It doesn't change anything at all. Obama is going to take the nomination not Clinton. As far as I'm concerned Obama is our nominee and the Clinton supporters are wasting their good hard earned money to support Clinton and for what...to lose?? That is just really sad....

    So what else is new ? She is just buying more time, at the expense of the democratic party and the voters who would like the campaign to focus on McCain.

    This changes nothing. Obama is going to sweep her in N. Carolina (she does not have an ultimate chance!!). Indiana is a very close race, so delegates will be split almost evenly. Hillary is damaging the Democratic Party attacking Obama as if he is a Republican. Shame on her. Obama will be our nominee!!!! She was suppose to win Penn. (Believe or not, you have those Americans that will not vote for a Black man period, point blank) We need to stop beating around the bush and admit to that. I believe in change and President Obama WILL bring it.

    OBAMA O8

    It's too bad that the Democrat Party doesn't give equal representation to all humans, but gives some greater voting weight than others. It's shameful, actually. It'shypocrisy to the max.

    Those who fall for her deception, refused to do the homework to find the ugly truth behind her cute smile. At least make an effort to look into her eyes that are windows to the soul. If you are sensitive and smart enough, you will find the truth.

    Obama all the way!

    Still not clear why media claims PA results as10 (percent) vicotry.

    Actual difference is 9.2%. I am very good at math and still don't understand how 9.2% is rounded as 10%.

    Regadless of how much head in delgates,contests, poplar votes

    "THE JUDGEMEN" factor advocated by Obama

    has now been exposed for PA did not buy his 'JUDGEMENT"about small town folks.

    OBAMA's argument that he is a better judge and unifier hasbeen exposed.

    She is on her way to matching him in the popular vote. And you thought it was ugly now? Wait til she catches up in the popular vote. You havent seen ugly.

  17. @americans

    for some miserly 16+ net delegates, this is a NO WIN contest for Billary!

    HILLARY needs to Drooop Out of the race and rally her support around the EVENTUAL NOMINEE – BARACK OBAMA!!!

    OBAMA '08, 12' – YES WE CAN!!!!

    That win does not matter much. He will leave her way behind in the next vote that will get him much closer to the finish line. Keep in mind that he will only need just a few of the superdelegates to reach the finish line. He's going to have more than enough superdelegates he needs. So it's safe to say he's already the winner. She is just there because the attention is addictive. Luck is not even on her side.

    I totally agree that a win is a win ! No question about it. But is was only a single digit not a double digit...

    It is only 9 % or less not 10%

    It is a victory she deserve. I am a black but do not take side with the way african-american seeing the primary as a RACE thing.
    Obama should know is the black race that gave him the edge. This can not make November easy if he get the nomination. It will be back to your tent o! Isreal.
    He is talking of Change without telling us the specific change he had to make in terms of health care, economy, foreign policy etc.

    Go ahead destroy the party!!!

    WE know Barack is spreading Hope and Change, but is Hillary spreading False Hope and Status Quo?

    You Decide!!!

    Take you head out of the sand and look at the math.

    Democrats let's unite around our candidate Barack Obama and win the White House.

    Let's kick the Bums out.

    I agree with the above Obama is the nominee. Clinton CANNOT win . She keeps saying she is the best suited to beat John Mccain yet she can't win her own primary. She is only concerned with her own political agenda and not the party. I now believe she is trying to wound Obama so he can't win and she will be set up as the 2012 "i told you so" canidate. Because we all know if Obama wins the general Hilary will never be president and she can't stand that. So a word of advice for Clinton. DROP OUT NOW. Don't be another Mike Huckabee.

    This is all such doodoo that the Clinton campaign is spreading.
    When you look at the list of delegates to each canidate– Clinton only came out way ahead in CA and NY. Check the list- her spin does not agree with the polls on who is the most electable.
