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.

    In West Virginia, she'll have to go into the hills and take her money personally. I don't think everybody has internet access yet. In a way, that probably helps.

    Clinton is finished. She likes the limelight.

    Go Obama – Yes We Can!!!

    I agree with all the comments about Hillary leaving. After her near lose in Indiana last night (she didn't nearly win, she nearly lost), and Obama's big win in NC where Bill was consistently campaigning for her (to no avail), she would be wise to just drop out and concede. It would make her look better in the long run. She needs to stop being a stubborn mule and get over it. You could tell she was finished by just looking at her daughter's face last night. It's over. Anything else is will just divide the Party and it's time for damage control.

    If she pushes this too far and continues to be destructive to the Fall election, I think there will be serious doubts about her even winning her next Senate race.....

    CNN, why are you approving comments that are more divisive and reactionary before approving comments that are respectful of both candidates? I posted my initial comment just after 10 and you have already approved several that came after.

    Obama's V.P. nominee? Whoever it is they need be a female candidate who supports his view of change and can attract blue collar voters and white women. That would be a formidable ticket!

  8. democratic party is sorry

    Hillary you sounded the most presidential last night in your speech. The Democratic party has failed you but we support you. They want to AGAIN put their weakest link first. We see how good that did them in 2004.

    its like they say History REPEATS itself and the DEM's don't seem to learn.

    Hillary, Hillary, c’mon now. Give up the ghost. Its over. Although I understand why you must continue to campaign. How else are you going to raise the money to pay yourself back. Afterall, $11.4 million is nothing to scoff at. And I know you and Bill wants yo’ money.

    This 66 year old white woman thinks electing Obama is our only hope to turn this country around and to begin to regain the respect we have lost throughout the world.

    Hillary supporters need time to heal and then those who truly love their country and care about issues like Roe v Wade will realize that a Democrat must be elected or this country we love will be doomed.

    Hillary, you can catch the Obama train on the way to the white house. That's the only way you are going to get there.

    As a north carolinian, I am so proud of our state for recognizing a movement that is destined to change our nation. Hillary, your party is bigger than your pride so it's time to step aside.

  18. Tired of idolatry

    Stop talking about "splitting the party" – this party is a joke and has been since Dean disenfranchised Michigan and Florida. Neither candidate has split the party – it is the absurd comments from both sides that is the problem. This Dem will not vote for Obama – I will be voting McCain. (but notice I am not bad-mouthing your god.... just your stupidity)

    It is time to heal the party. Hillary, you can't win. You just can't. So be graceful and do the best thing for your party and constituents.

    This white woman voted for Obama. And I will do so in November.

    Remember in a year you have no one to blame but yourself if you vote for McCain.

    We are learning more and more about Obama, Hillary needs to stay the course and save this election for the Demos. Where there is smoke.... the goods will be delivered on this man before November, Wake up America.
