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.

    Winners never quit, and quitters never win. That's why Hillary will win in West Virginia and beyond. Carry on, Madam President, you carry the hopes and dreams of a Democratic victory in November with you; something your competitor can never achieve.

    I stated in another posting it's not my place to call for Sen. Clinton to concede the race, and I really feel that way. I will say that it is now time for the superdelegates to make their intentions public regardless of who they support. I know there are some who are holding out until the convention, but I believe that is for selfish reasons and doesn't help the party as a whole. We've got to start thinking about what's best for the party as a whole, and not what's best for me as an individual.

    This election is not going to be a cakewalk, but it is ours to lose depending on how long we remain devisive instead of decisive. Sen. McCain is a former military officer and trained on strategy and subversive warfare. You better believe he is thinking that "The enemy of my enemy is my friend" and will let us as a party rip each other to shreads in the coming weeks.

    It's time for the superdelegates to start earning their titles by demonstrating party leadership instead of playing "wait and see" political games like President Bush is and Sen. McCain wants to with the economy and housing crisis right now.

    As a Hillary supporter I recognize that Obama should get the nomination and that she needs to gracefully bow out. I'm highly suspicious of the supposed Hillary supporters who say they will vote for McCain. They are probably neocon radio listeners messing up the board. There are a lot of Obama supporters who need to chill out and be respectful of others opinions. Democrats need to unite to lead this country back from this lunatic administration that McCain would keep going.

    Hillary, please go away. The Clinton name, the predictions from her camp, the phony gas tax holiday and a lot of help from the media couldn't fool the voters so the only one being fooled is Clinton herself.
    She doesn't care that she is hurting the Democratic party. She feels it that the presidency is her birthright and she can't understand that the majority of voters don't see this.

  5. yes

    What is Obvious to me is that the party is divided and the Whole country from coast to coast to all the territories are half for Obama and half for Hillary... there is two fractions of the party and the country is telling Obama and Hillary loud and clear that we want them both in a joint ticket. How can it be clearer? Hillary is running for something and perhaps today is more clear to me is maybe VP. I hope I am not the only one seen this. Obama needs Hillary as much as she needs him and the whole country is counting on them. Let’s call, let’s unite!!!

    What Hillary might have ment was American people really do not act like our for fathers did. We are at war and what do we do? how many people are really voting on experence, values, and knowledge? I don't think many are. The black americans are voting for Obama because of the colar of his skin and for some reason they feel that with a black president this nation will be turned over to Black power!!!!!! like rev wright had preached. Wake up super delcates it will be up to you do you want to worry about your owen vote or can we just stay focused on the realy ISSUE (AMERICA) we need to dig out from the BUSH Damage. I don't know whay was worse Katrina or the Bush years. we have already had a 8 years of ignorance why give us Obama and or McCain for 4 years. When clinton was in office I lived good my doller went further. Today we can't get out of a doller what we use to pay 5 cents for. GO HILLLARY !!!!!!! GOD BLESS ALL AMERICANS!

    I was disappointed in the coverage last night. As commentators, it was abundtly clear the "Hillary" supporters were showing their anger and making up new number games, excuses, etc. Especially Lanny? Enough is enough. When is the democratic party going to say enough is enough? If you are truely a democratic, you should be trying to bring the party together not trying to divide it. This is a great example on how Hillary has run her campaign. People are seeing through it.

    Fred, you are wrong. As for experince as the key issue. George Bush had enough experience. He was the governor of Texas and managed numerous successful corporations/teams.
    I am sure Clinton does not have that much experience.

    Dems lets come together.

    I think Hillary needs to leave the Democratic party. It has been taken over by blackmailers, thugs, anti-Americans!!

    Give Obama the nod Howard Dean, your HATE for Hillary, overides the safety and security of the American people!! You have allowed this all to happen!

    CNN- why do you support such hatred?
    I know this will not be allowed, I no longer care.

    Why isn't CNN admitting facts that other stations are reporting. Why don't you talk about Obama's pledged delegate lead and super delegate lead?? Give some analysis. Stop trying to hope that Clinton stays in.

    CNN = Clinton news network

    Democrats Unite, we know the Republicans are going use use Race, Rev. Wright and The party's primary fight to attack Obama, the Democratic Nominee.

    We need to be ready as a party to say no to the Republican/conservative polarizing politics. Every chance we get as Democrats we need to knock the Republican Machine down by forcing them back on the REAL ISSUES:

    1. Economy
    2. War in Iraq
    3. Health Care
    4. US World Image
    5. Education
    6. Supreme Court Judges
    7. Imigration

    I am extremely disturbed by the constant attempts Hillary has made to hijack this election – race baiting, slander and pandering to any group that will listen to her. Now she wants the Michigan delegates and our legislators are attempting to hand it to her on a silver platter. Initially, by moving the primary up without consent of the people and now attempting to re-write the rules mid-stream in an effort to hijack the nominee selection and hand it over to her in exchange for who knows what. Enough is enough, folks, Hilliary did not win here in Michigan, she ran uncontested, hardly a case for her to receive any benefits from that farce of a primary. Needless to say over 51% of voters here in Michigan voted uncommitted, that speaks volumes.

    It's amazing how ignorant some whites can be by thinking Obama only has African American voters–maybe in your small and racist world, you only see two colors black and white but the reality is he has transcended race in a way she can never transcend gender and his supporters are of may races, that's why he's win the general...Hillary, is no more than a female with an agenda and if she steals this, then I along with many other men will play the sex card and not vote for a lying feminist.......two sides to every coin....believe that!

  20. I was a Hillary supporter

    For all you Hillary supporters that will not vote for Obama when he is the democratic presidential candidate:

    You cannot be a true democrat if that is your attitude. A vote for John McCain is a vote for Bush. Come to your senses before it's too late.

    This must be a really hard day for Hillary and her family. But, she is a fighter and a good politician, I am sure she will start to rebuild the democratic party now.
