Clinton (sort of) responds to Dean

[cnn-photo-caption image= http://i.cdn.turner.com/cnn/2008/images/04/28/art.deanhill.gi.jpg caption="Dean suggested Monday either Clinton or Obama should drop out shortly after the last primary."]GRAHAM, North Carolina (CNN) – Hillary Clinton wouldn’t say Monday whether she agrees with Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean's latest comments that either she or Barack Obama should drop out of the race following the last Democratic primary on June 3.

“We’re going to go through these next contests, we’re going to see where we end up and we’ll take stock of where we are after they finish,” Clinton told reporters on the trail in North Carolina, adding that she feels the prolonged race has been good for both the party and voters.

Clinton said again that Michigan and Florida’s votes should be counted.

“We have to decide, do we wish to punish Michigan and Florida, two states that we have to win in the fall in order to win back the White House? When there are perfectly acceptable ways of resolving this?” Clinton asked. “So we’ve got to resolve Michigan and Florida and we’ll see how the process plays out.”

    Do the right thing. Hillary is our only choice to beat the Republicans in November. Hillary has a better plan with solutions to solve our problems that Bush created. Obama is great man, but he's not ready to handle the most difficult job in Washington, D.C.

    With all due respect, Hillary Skank, you can take your salute and stick it where the sun don't shine. And that goes for all you morons who think Bush III is a better choice that either of the [D] candidates. The voting IQ of the American public is at the level of retardation, and you people - along with your buddies the 28% true-believers and the neo-nugggets who sit in front of FOXnews and worship the likes of Limbaugh - are THE problem. Our forefathers are rolling in their graves looking at what you have perpetrated on our great country - BY CHOICE!

    This is information that the American people NEED to know; this is VITAL to ALL voters. The Clintons are scandalous. There is a case pending RIGHT NOW in CA, it’s a real, legit case Peter Paul vs Clinton. For the skeptics, the case number is : BC304174

    LMAO!!!!!! As a lifelong independent voter, I'm loving all this. The Democratic party is quickly imploding and the Republicans aren't far behind!
    Maybe we'll get back to a government "of the people" in my lifetime after all. Who woulda thunk it?
    But, I wonder what all you lazy fools who need someone to feed you slogans and tell you how to think are gonna do when the puppeteers aren't there to pull your strings any more?

    I just can't believe how backwards we are here in America for not accepting the fact that it's about time to have a woman president. Hillary has been ready from day one to be the next president. Barrack says, he is for change, talk is cheap we need action. On the other hand, Hillary also represents change and has the experience. It's not rhetoric but action that we need. I am all for Hillary she'll make an outstanding president., the kind of leader to get us out of the irreparable damage that the current president got is into.

    Anything I say is censored so I'll try and play nice. Ok? Have you ever noticed, that Howerd Dean offten looks like a gerbil, shaved and ready to go in. When he comes out he looks like the same kind of mess he made of the DNC. Don't you think so? Not that I would know about shaved gerbils, or anything, but that's just what I hear people say. Or something. If I were Hillary, I wouldn't stand to close to him. He's looks ready to go again.
