LOUISVILLE, Kentucky (CNN) - After winning Tuesday's Kentucky primary by an overwhelming margin, Democratic presidential contender Hillary Clinton told a cheering crowd that "we've achieved an important victory" and that she had no plans to drop out of the race against Barack Obama.

"It's not just the Kentucky bluegrass that music to my ears - it's the sound of your overwhelming vote of confidence even in the face of tough odds," she said.

"You've never given up on me, because you know I've never given up on you."

    Tonight's Hillary's last hurrah! The fat lady is singing "Party's over...turn out the lights..." The fat lady in odd looking pant suits will be fading....fading....fading! Obama needs only 93 delegates for the nomination and Oregon's votes haven't even been counted yet. More and more superdelegates are jumping on the Obama band wagon. Now even adding Michigan and Florida votes won't change the final outcome.

    CNN: please keep up with the Clinton stories and headlines. I am about ready to vote by changing the station and website. Where is the balance?

  4. No.Cal. for Obama

    Well, congratulations Hillary. You did it! A win is a win.

    I do think as an Obama supporter he should have campaigned there more. Oh well, those who know him now must be proud they voted for him anyway. Thank you to those who voted for Sen. Obama.

    I gave up on you HIllary a long time ago. I never really cared you, but I thought I could hold my nose and vote for you, but your campaign totally disgusted me. How you can look yourself in the mirror I will never know.

    As a hard working 30 year old African-American woman from the small state of Delaware I wish this race was over. According to Hillary Clinton's latest political angle, my vote doesn't even count. The more I hear her talk the more I feel that she is highlighting a racial divide in this country. Intially, I was one of the voters that would've voted for either candidate (in November), but NOW I would NEVER vote for Hillary Clintion in November. If she manages to steal this from Obama, I would encourage the hard working African -Americans of the "small" states to stay home !!!

    I think the Attorneys General for Michigan and Florida should file suit against the Democratic National Committee because the DNC's rules are in direct violation of the Voting Rights Act of 1964!! Obama, being an African-American, whose voting rights were obstructed for far too long should be one of the most vocal seeking the Michigan and Florida votes to count. However, he is clearly self-serving and doesn't care about fairness!!! Think about that!!!!
