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.

    The best solution is an Obama/Clinton ticket...
    The problem is... she's already been VP once...

    Why would you give someone money when you know they can't win?

    She should be shame for asking, she is taking advantage of her supporters and they are fools for giving it to her because Hillary has millions and they are the one that will be struggling to pay there bill.

    What a shame. 🙁

    Hillary has only herself to blame for her failing campaign. Too many lies, too much mud slinging, too much pandering to voters. Her surrogates, especially Bill, Lanny Davis and that clown Carville haven't exactly helped her either.
    Obama's victories are well deserved and honestly earned. He will be a great President and bring a welcome reprieve from the Bush/Clinton years.

    To Deb
    Your a little Racist aren't you? That also discribes Hillary and Bill. Neither of them know how to tell the truth... Dodge those bullets in her kevlar pantsuit. The only thing bigger than her ego is her pantsuit.

    I hope they both really feal the pain of the American public who more and more can't stand them. I don want any more of the Clinton scandels in the White House. NO HILLBILLIES in the White House.

    Bill Clinton and Hillary Clinton ruined this country with Nafta and their scandals....Whitewater, Travelgate, Not releasing papers, Not releasing Income Taxes, Voting for a war, Not getting Bin Laden when he could, Monica Lewinsky, Paula Jones, Perjury, Jennifer Flowers, Chinese Influence on fund raising, Marc Rich pardon, disbarred Husband lawyer, strange suicides, etc...

    In any game, the experience players dominate the feild of play. Obama is considered to be inexperience whereas Hillary is considered experience. If she's the experience one then she ought to be rolling the ball in leading in every aspects. Instead the supposed inexperienced, the underdog–Obama is dominating in lead.
    How can people say He is incapable of leadship or leading this country in the right direction. He as not loaned his campaign any money. no debt on record.

    According to Time magazine,George McGovern, who was supporting Clinton, has just announced he will now be supporting Obama and has called for her to drop out. I'm certain more will follow. What does that tell you?

    It's OVER. Pack up your bags Hillary.

    OBAMA 08

    I have often suspected that Hillary is all about EGO. Now its confirmed. Her ego wont allow her to admit what we all know.

    For the good of the Democratic party, the Clintons have to bow out gracefully and endorse Sen. Obama. Even with FLA. & MI. she does not have a chance.

    I am SO proud of INDIANA & NORTH CAROLINA for not falling prey to pandering! THANK YOU INDIANA & NORTH CAROLINA!

    OBAMA 08 & 12!

    Oh for the love of God, you don't soldier on after a brutal beating of the May 6th Primaries. You limp until you break, and she's way past her breaking point, once again... she's damaging the DNC with her misconception that she might actually have a shot at this. Who the hell is she kidding anyways?

    YES SHE CAN!!! Hillary will make a 100% effort to carry on and if at the end she is not successful, she will prove to America that they have made a grave error AGAIN!!

    And then people like me will be lost to the Republican Party and will vote John McCain. We are the Moderate to Conservative segment of the Democratic Party that will and can never support Obama, not because of his RACE but because of lack of TRUST IN HIM, his lack of EXPERIENCE and his lack of GOOD JUDGMENT.

    If Colin Powell was the nominee of either party then I would vote for him because I and many of us see him as a President ad Commander in Chief. I cannot vote for a person who has not demonstrated any real accomplishment in his professional life, period

    Staying in the race now is only a sign of selfishness. She knows she cannot win as she is far behind in delegates and will soon lose the lead in super-delegates. And who in the world would have $11m to lend her campaign? Surely an elitist. It's a pity half her racist supporters cannot look beyond Obama's color to take a stance for the Democratic Party's values. It is truly a sad day for America.

    Hillary won consecutively in Ohio, Texas, Pennsylvannia and Indiana while Hillary cut Obama's lead in North Carolina from 20% down to 14% only.

    Good job Hillary. Wake up superdelegates!

    Save 30c a day for three months... that's the problem with this country, one sales gimmik after another where the only beneficiary is the sales person. I'm glad it didn't work this time.

    I think, Obama for President.
