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.

    She eked out Indiana by 1.8%, not even 2%! Now, if you take out the effect of the 7% republican vote that went overwhelmingly for her just to cause chaos, she would have lost...
    Regardless, they will probably split the delegates evenly...

    Why oh why is she doing this to herself? When this is done, she will have lost all of her dignity... not to mention destroying the former President's legacy...

    At this rate, the value of his speeches will drop significantly, and she might not be able to recover her $11M loan to her campaign...

    Worse, she might not even get re-elected to the senate if she keeps doing this to herself....

    Someone needs to intervene... Al Gore, what in the world are you waiting for?

    One thing everyone on this post has to remember, HRC cannot win without OBAMA supporters and OBAMA cannot win without HRC supporters.

    The Facts are that no matter how much we support our candidates, in the end, we need each other to win.

    to Deb and Baby B, the people have spoken and they have chosen OBAMA. We do need each other, however, OBAMA is not resposible for the statements and attitudes of all of his supporters. Especially on a message board that he probably doesn't know exists.

    Good for Hillary.

    I continue to be amazed that people are still being bamboozled by Obama. But then again I was amazed that Bush was voted in twice.

    How many obama supporters here are black or under 18. I bet it is 90%. It's really sad that CNN caters to these people.

    Last night on CNN, Wolf Blitzer was about to go into "cardio arrest". They were doing everthing they could to try to secure somekind of way to secure the Indiana Victory for Hillary. It was hilarious and disgusting at the same time. Lanny, lost his voice, Cupto, was there cancelling a spot that Hillary was to appear on TV the next moring. The Clinton camp was in disarray and the whole world was looking at this fiasco Hillary has been playing games all along in this campaign. She is not for real. I'm wondering now how does she feel now playing "Follow The Leader" with Senator Obama leading. Last night when Hillary was giving her talk, not speech, Bill Clinton's face was red as a "BEET". He looked so angry until he was scary to look at. Every now and then he would try to put on a happy face but the world could see that Hillary, Bill and Chelsey were not "happy campers. Good for them, they are the so called quote, "strong candidates". They do not care about this country. Bill proved that when in was in the White House. He was down the hall having sex "with that woman". Where was Hillary sleep at 3:00 a.m. while Bill was with "that woman". The Clintons are a joke to the whole world. If she wants to bring more humiliation upon her and her family, so be it.

    To Deb:

    Do your research on Hillary please. Obama is not winning by a cult of blacks. 2/3 of N.C. voters were white my dear. If you look at NM, she barely won, and there's a lot of whites and hispanics there. It's folks like you that are keeping this party divided over RACE. If Barack Obama had half the baggage Hillary has and is creating, he could not even RUN for POTUS. As senator, Hillary has not made very many presidential decisions, but it's folks like you that hide behind the fact, you do not want a black man running the country. BY THE WAY, OBAMA IS HALF WHITE HALF BLACK. Racially, he represents most of us -if you want to base the leadership of the country on skin tone- which would be sad, but people still do it.

    She can still win, dont kid yourself people. It's dawnting, really steep climb to the sumit, but still possibe! Amazing how Barack had a great run, huge momentum BUT still behind in the ever so important Super Delegates. They will decide it, and it will be close.

    For all of you out there who think Obama has won, ask yourself this. Does he have 2025? the answer is NO.

    Some of you seem to think that Hilary is just trying to "stick it" to Obama. You miss the point. In this election, they are nealy evenly split right down the middle of the Democratic voters. If Obama was truely the winner, then he would have reached the 2025 number and be the one that "We the People" have chosen. That has not happened. If he reaches that number and is our who will run against McCain, then I will support him. But, I firmly believe that he still does not have the best path to win. And even 4 more years of a Republican White House is unacceptable

    Truth wins out. Amazing how all the media is trying to make it seem like they believed this would happen, especially after their wall to wall Rev. Wright coverage. Even with the media's help and all the blatant pandering, Hillary's personal ambition was transparent to a large majority of the great state of NC. Indiana almost wasn't fooled. Wonder what depths she'll sink to this week in order to claim what she feels entitled to. The only reason that makes sense to me why she would stay in this is personal ambition, not the good of the party ... or the good of the country.

    Obama all the way!!!

    Clearly with 90%+ balck votes, Obama is a race candidate.. Why doesn't the media say it as is..

    none of the other demographics are so skewed..

    I guess she is continuing on to get back her money that she loaned herself to restore her 109 mil. and her stup- supporters will probably send in more money. Suckers!!! And this is a woman who you want to run our country? No wonder they say are supporters are uneducated

    I agree with "atypical white person" – the victory for Obama is clear no need to respond at all. maybe Obama supporters should just completely stay off these message boards for a few days and give Hillary supporters some space to let it sink in.

    Obama has won. Welcome to reality. If you don't understand how primaries work (the winner usually decided well before now) then you'll keep falling for Clinton's ever changing goal posts. What's her next argument? – "Obama cannot win with left handed asians over 85 from the midwest, so I should get the nomination".

    Go ahead Hillary. Enjoy traveling and eating good food, and ordering pant suits every day on the back of your donors. But then, they deserve what they get. However, the race is over. Everyone gets that, except for you.

    Even w/ Fla. and Mich. she is losing. You have to give Obama the "uncommited" vote in Mich.

    NC has erased the small gains she made in Ohio and Penn. When she wins it's not by enough.

    I say let everyone vote now. There is no reason to bow out. However both candidates should stay away from the dirt.

    If she stays she needs to play nice for the good of the party.
