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.

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

    1. How did she prove that? By getting blown out in NC or narrowingly win in IN? If shes such the politician and has all this experience and she SHOULD be the nominee..why isnt she? Why has she not ended this race?

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

    1. But a "cult" following of whites and hispanics will? Its so funny no one was talking so heavily about the "black vote" when they were voting for Clinton! I think WHITE PEOPLE are afraid that the BLACK PEOPLE are going to decide the nominee which is a CROCK.

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

    1. Balanced budget? She cant even raise money for her campaign or stay out of debt! You want peace? She said she would demolish Iran! How would peace come from that? How will we prosper by saving $20 on a gas tax holiday?

    That's great news for the Gimmick Candidate. Now she can mount her horse into her native town of little West Virginia where her Daddy raised chickens and racing horses before running to Washington DC barefoot to protest equal rights for his unborn daughter then threatened the then president he will have a daughter that will one day take over the world!

    I support Hillary. If it's over for her then it is also over for Obama. Her supporters will never vote for him, including myself. He will probably get the nomination, but I see a fierce battle for him against John Mccain. I don't really think that Obama will win in Nov.

    Well...NO SHE CAN'T!!!

    All of her ridiculous arguments and antics are null and void! I don't even believe that she believes it anymore (as if she ever did). Now we learn she just loaned herself 6.4 million dollars. She surely won't raise any substantial money after last night. Well, unless she gets the oil companies to pay for it just like the gas tax. LOL!!!!

    Let's get real; even when you throw in Florida and Michigan now, she no longer has the popular vote argument! There is 0% possibility for her to win the majority of states, popular vote, or delegates.

    Bye, bye Sillary Clinton. Silly rabbit! Tricks are for Clintons. Now I guess they'll get back to getting millions of donations to the Clinton Museum from questionable Middle East donors.

    OMG, she is Rocky!!!! She is getting her head punched off her shoulders and she doesn't have the good sense to stay down.

    I think Bubba should play the role of "Mick" and tell her: "YOU CAN'T WIN, ROCK!"

    The only bright spot for her is that in 2016 (Rocky 3), she will beat the Republican candidate. Provided that he looks like Mr. T and his campaign slogan is "I pity da fool," of course.

    What I would truly love to see now is an announcement that Hillary will run as VP to John McCain. Bye Bye Obama!!!!

    I just saw a post stating that black americans are voting for Barack Obama because he is black... So what. There are a lot of whte americans who are not voting for him and will not vote for him because he is black. Neither is right, but Obama could have won all of the states he has won solely on the black vote.

    Clinton supporters let place the blame for this tight race where it belongs on her. She was the self proclaimed democratic nominee for " day one" in this election, Obama was not even in the conversation, his campaign put in the work and she got surprised and by the time she took him seriously it was too late. Now take an unbiased honest look at it and that is exactly what has happened. Give him credit, he is the true underdog here, not her.

    I hope that Hillary uses her stop in West Virginia to point out to voters the dangers of another four years of neocon madness.

    Anyone else find it interesting that the less educated the voter the more likely a vote for Clinton? Pretty much seems to be a trend in primary after primary...

    The voting patterns really concerns me. African American voting to African American candidate is in 90% range which is very alarming. I do not see any non African American presidential candidate from Democratic party nomination anymore (period).

    This is an end to two party American Politics.

    Obama supporters PLEASE help me understand.

    I must be an uneducated poor white folk or something.....

    Sen. Obama has a white mom and a black dad and black step-dad, correct? Correct!

    Sen. Obama STILL attends a "church" that preaches that the white man is to blame for all the problems of the black man. That they need to RISE up.

    For 20 years Sen. Obama has listened to this type of "crap" and now we should "Unite" behind him? I have seen him SAY, he want to unite all, but actions speak louder than words, and the only actions I have seen is DIVIDED.

    Please tell me what, where and how he is bring us back to the core of Unity? I don't see it.

    Why are people giving Obama a hard time because much of his support is from African-Americans? Many of the democratic victories in recent years (including Bill Clinton's two presidential wins) have been achieved because they have received about 90% of the African-American vote.

    Thanks, Scott. You just proved my point. By the way, "exact same" is redundant. A SCHOLAR like you should know that.

    I guess Hillary's campaign spokespersons are the only ones up at 3am. This is over. It's been over.

    Being tough is nice, but anyone can be a bully. It's time to unite behind the winner. Why won't you folks give this to Obama! HE'S WON!!

    It's time for HRC to step down.

    Bill Clinton has supported and endorsed many losing candidates over the years. Many of those candidates lost because they lacked Bill Clinton's natural charm and charisma. The voters have decided that they don't want Hillary. The Clintons should acknowledge that fact and graciously step aside and help to unify the party.

    If Hillary does not take the Dem. nomination, this country will be on the landslide to Hell. Given history and the power of the indifference but brilliant antics of the Rep. party, I guarantee that Sen. McCain will be the next president. Obama does not have the strength, knowledge, or experience to beat the cold, ruthless Rep. machine. GO HILLARY!

  24. Hillary Supporter

    Hillary, I think you have been great for the last several months, I have supported all along but honestly I think the time has come to bow out gracefully and let us all of Hillary supporter reconcile the party and support Sen. Obama and get a Democart in the White House.
    Democart 08.

    Hillary is now going to West Virginia, how nice. A few months ago she said that the small states did not matter and it was the large states like California that counted. Of course that was when Obama won so many small states. Her claims that she can win in November because of states like California is nonsense because Democrats always carry California anyway. All of a sudden the small states like West Virginia and Kentucky are very important. Hillary will not give up because her ego will not let her. Michigan and Florida votes should be equally divided if they count at all. Everyone including Hillary agreed to abide by the rules of the DNC, now she is behind and wants to break the rules. I wonder if she would want MI and FL to count if Obama was behind like she is. Somehow I believe that she would be fighting to keep those 2 states out of the race if she were leading. Obama won big here in NC last night and Hillary only won Indiana by only 22000 votes or so.
