Hillary Clinton added a previously unscheduled campaign stop Wednesday in West Virginia, soldiering on after a split decision in Tuesday's voting in Indiana and North Carolina, her aides said.

The senator plans to appear at 11:45 a.m. at Shepherd University in Shepherdstown, West Virginia, Clinton aides told reporters about 3 a.m. Wednesday.

Her daughter, Chelsea Clinton, had already been scheduled to speak at the university.

    Why is she still in the race. There is no way she can win by the numbers. Lanny keeps talking about polls. They will try anything to justify holding Obama back. Polls don't make votes. Everybody votes, everybody is not polled. They don't count. Why doesn't the DNC and Superdelegates just vote and put an end to this. If it were reversed, Obama would be out of the race by now. Actually if Obama had won Indiana there would be hysterics and recounts,

    I hope Obama and his fans took note of the exit polls. He will not win w/o Hillarys supporters and if the Obama cult is not nicer, its going to be harder to win us over. Obama fans can be so hateful and its people like you why I and many others would never vote for Obama.

    More spin? She is losing ground and she continues to push on with this. We need to start the healing and move toward taking back the White House before even more damage is done to this party.

    At the current delegate levels and poll numbers, Clinton needs about 90% of the superdelegates remaining to win.

    She has been losing the superdelegate race by a nearly 2 to 1 margin.

    She shouldn't be adding *ANY* stops. She should be *CALLING IT STOPS*.

    Get it, Clinton? It's *OVER* ... stop dragging this out.

    I think we need to give HRC some space to let in sink in that she will most likely not be the nominee. If we don't push her into a corner and try to force her out, it may provide her with the necessary opportunity to bow out gracefully.

    So let's have all the Obama supporters step back for a minute and leave well enough alone.

    We have to remember that how we respond has an impact on how HRC's supporters respond. We can either encourage divisiness or promote unity. Walk the talk.

    Peace

    At this point it appears clear that Hillary is simply staying in the race to try to get back some of the money she has lost in "loans" to her campaign. After her last ditch gutter politics and pandering have not worked she just has to hang in long enough

    DEMOCRATES - STOP THIS NOW !!!!!
    The only reason Hillary made Indiana close was the Rublican "Chaos" factors it's clear, yet no one wants to publically admit this..... it makes a mockery of the system and shows Rublicans are in control of the Democratic race. Wake Up make a decision NOW !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    This is becoming painful to watch.

    Since when has "eek"ing by with a 2% lead in a vote considered a victory? ...a game-changer?

    The writing is on the wall. I have supported both candidates, I'm truly happy with either. They both bring qualified, albeit different, attributes to the White House. But this charade that CLinton is perpetuating is becoming ridiculous.

    I admire the fervor of her supporters...but c'mon people...isn't this race to the nomination over now?!

    Pelase superdelegates...I beg of you...SPEAK!!!!!!!!!!!!

  17. Tampa Votes Barack Obama

    It's over honey. At this point, if you win, it would officially be considered THEFT. No one would support that idea.

    Obama is no longer a viable candidate!

    Hillary proved once again that if we want the White House back we need to have her as the Nominee!

    A cult following of Blacks won’t win the General Election!

    We are looking forward to years of Peace, Prosperity and a balanced budget!

    But we know from Hillary's own words that West Virginia is the kind of state that doesn't matter. Oh, wait, she expects to win it, so it does matter.

    I suppose it's a farewell tour at this point.

    Hopefully she will deliver her concession speech today.

    This is over, and it's time to show a little dignity, Hillary.

    Hillary Clinton will be in my town Thursday here in Oregon. I am supporting her.

    She is going to give those people in the remaining states who haven't yet held primaries a CHANCE TO VOTE! WE do not want to be disenfranchised like Florida and Michigan.

    I will vote for Hillary, and if she loses, I will vote for McCain.

    Obama is not qualified to be a president of the greatest nation in the world. What do we really know about him????
