    Hillary will not be running in 2012. This is her first and last political chance to become President.....McCain......you have him already elected......that is not going to happen.

    Gore did not want Clinton's support because he was "HIS OWN MAN." He did not ask Bill to campaign for him, which even led to the losing of his home state of TN. Kerry didn't deserve any support because he wouldn't even defend himself. Instead of smacking those Swift Boaters back, he just took it for 3 months and that made him weak in the eyes of voters.

    Hillary Clinton at her celebratory speech last night said "I'm in this race to fight for you … You know you can count on me to stand up strong for you every single day in the White House." And I believe her. She is staying in this race until the remaining States have had their votes. She is fighting for every voter's voice to be heard. And that includes Michigan and Florida. I think it is the principle, regardless of whether she wins the nomination or not. For that, I stand behind her proudly.

    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?

  9. LucieLee

    And just where are those 12 delegates that remain to be allocated located? If they are anywhere near the Philly area..then Barack's got 'm too. BTW Hillary didn't win by double-digits...it was 8.6....Not exactly a "blow-out". I have another score to settle with the Hillary camp...she's saying about PA.."a win is a win..." Yes, Hillary that is true, but remember, in trying to continually sway the superdelegates, Barack still has more popular vote, more delegates, more states won......It's Barack Obama who will be saying.."a win is a win" and just what are you going to do about it , Hillary?

    why is my comment not posted? Others submitted after me have been, and I know you have room for it.

    Hopefully North Carolina folks will give Obama a decisive win, and then hopefully we can shut down all of this polarizing craziness in this race. Hopefully superdelagates will go ahead and pick a side, any side. Hopefully people will vote based on what is actually best for our country at large, not based on racism, sexism or any other "ism". So far with most of the comments on a lot of these copious posts, our country's red neck has been showing.

    Billary are two idiots and the American people that can vote for an idiot like that should read and listen to ABC, FOX,CNN,ABC or NBC.

    The People have no idea what is in the Constitution The Three Amigos, Billary and Obamam want to give everything away and Johgn wants to blow up countries.

    Where are the real Patriots?? Read a book and get some real information. Your TV is for fun it has nothing to do with reality it is People magazine.

    Sad day for America

    In the end, Hillary got 9 more delegates than Obama from Pennsylvania, 80 to 71. However Obama did to Hillary what the US did to the Soviet Union in the mid 80's. Out spent them until they went bankrupt. This contest is over and actually it’s been over since Texas. Hillary has continually tried to change the rule of the game and in the end she still will loose. Yes, she raise $2.5 million after her victory, however she was $10 in debt. So if you do the math, she’s still $7.5 million in the hole. And by the way, I will make another donation to the Obama campaign!

  16. India California for BARACK OBAMA

    why is my comment is never posted? Others submitted after me have been, and I know you have room for it.

    Hillary simply cannot tell the truth. Here’s her scorecard:
    Admitted Lies
    • Chelsea was jogging around the Trade Center on Sept. 11, 2001. (She was in bed watching it on TV.)
    • Hillary was named after Sir Edmund Hillary. (She admitted she was wrong. He climbed Mt. Everest five years after her birth.)
    • She was under sniper fire in Bosnia. (A girl presented her with flowers at the foot of the ramp.)
    • She learned in The Wall Street Journal how to make a killing in the futures market. (It didn’t cover the market back then.)
    Whoppers She Won’t Confess To
    • She didn’t know about the FALN pardons.
    • She didn’t know that her brothers were being paid to get pardons that Clinton granted.
    • Taking the White House gifts was a clerical error.
    • She didn’t know that her staff would fire the travel office staff after she told them to do so.
    • She didn’t know that the Peter Paul fundraiser in Hollywood in 2000 cost $700,000 more than she reported it had.
    • She opposed NAFTA at the time.
    • She was instrumental in the Irish peace process.
    • She urged Bill to intervene in Rwanda.
    • She played a role in the ’90s economic recovery.
    • The billing records showed up on their own.
    • She thought Bill was innocent when the Monica scandal broke.
    • She was always a Yankees fan.
    • She had nothing to do with the New Square Hasidic pardons (after they voted for her 1,400-12 and she attended a meeting at the White House about the pardons).
    • She negotiated for the release of refugees in Macedonia (who were released the day before she got there).
    With a record like that, is it any wonder that we suspect her of being less than honest and straightforward?

    In a USA Today/Gallup survey when people were asked whether the canditates were “honest and trustworthy”, Senator John McCain came in first with 67percent, Senator Barrack Obama second with 63 percent and Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton came in last with 44 percent.
    Some of her “mispoken stories” include…
    1. Daughter Chelsea was jogging around the Trade Center on Sept. 11, 2001. (In reality, she was sleeping in bed.)
    2. She was named after Sir Edmund Hillary. (He climbed Mount Everest FIVE YEARS AFTER HER BIRTH!.)
    3. She came running off a plane in Bosnia because she was under sniper fire. (That’s not the way the CBS camera recorded it. In reality, a girl presented her with flowers at the foot of the ramp.)
    4. She was able to make a big killing in the futures market of what she learned in The Wall Street Journal. (TWSJ didn’t cover the market back then.)

  17. @americans

    From NBC's Domenico Montanaro
    NBC News has updated its Pennsylvania pledged delegate count. Clinton now has an 80-71 split with seven delegates still to be allocated.

    Keep in mind, however, that when the counting is done, Clinton will likely net more than that.

    Obama now leads by 157 in the pledged delegate count: 1,488-1,331

    Factoring in the superdelegate count (Clinton 262, Obama 238), Obama leads by 133 overall: 1,726-1,593.

    Hillary started out with tremendous name recognition and an immense lead – she had every political advantage 6 months ago, but has squandered all of that goodwill, and is the least trusted politician and is 23 points behind Obama nationally. She squandered the very tax resources that would fund universal health care, hospitals, schools, roads and bridges (I-35 in Minneapolis) by dedicating them to Iraq, by voting to authorize the use of military force in Iraq. Her solutions involves shipping US TAX dollars overseas to Iraq and raising taxes so that factories aequpment and jobs are shipped to Mexico and overseas to China. But her "Solutions" are good enough for Ohio and Pennsylvania's citizens – who then ask how they got into this mess. If you want to change the tide of jobs, dollars and opportunities flowing out of the US, in big cities and small towns, then vote for change,
    As for Hillary's 3AM phone call, it's probably Bill phoning her to say he's working late with his staff!

    Winning Pennsylvania by less than 30 points was a crushing defeat for Hillary Clinton. Her only chance now is for the Super Delegates to overturn the will of the people (or to win around 75% of the remaining pledged delegates). Nice try Hillary, but you've only served to indebt yourself, and aid the McCain campaign. Its over.

    Great win and great speech Hillary!!! No matter what, we are not going home and shutting up, we are in this to win, and if that means on the convention floor then so be it. There is no way Obama can win in November, and if they give the nomination to him by cheating and not counting Michigan and Florida votes, then you will really see trouble in the Democratic party. This needs to be fair, and Hillary has won more votes than Obama has.

  23. Ben

    The exit polls showed a majority of people in Pennsylvania thought that even if Obama lost that state he would still get the nomination . So why did they vote for Hillary. Sounds like more rebublican shenanigans. By the way, to all the Pennsyvanians that thought dragging out this process would be a positive spotlight on their state, all I learned is that Pennsylvania is a sh**hole full of old racists and stupid (I'm sorry, uneducated) people.

    Seriously, that's her "BIG" win? Obama will get that back in N.C. with no problem if not more. She would need 10 PA's to catch up to Obama, How in the world can she honestly win this nomination? By making Obama look bad? If Obama looks bad, isn't even worse that she can't beat him? If you can't beat the slowest runner in a race, that means you came in last place!
