Clinton campaign plans to keep going - but isn't saying where

The primaries may be over, but there are signs the Clinton campaign may keep going.

The primaries may be over, but there are signs the Clinton campaign may keep going.


(CNN) -
Democrats, reporters and rival Barack Obama’s campaign have all been scrutinizing Hillary Clinton for signs she may continue her presidential run after the last primary takes place June 3. On Thursday, they got an answer: definitely maybe.

The press corps traveling with the New York senator received an afternoon e-mail asking them whether they wanted to stay on the road with the campaign next week – most of which falls after Tuesday’s votes in Montana and South Dakota, the final contests of the primary season.

Reporters were offered the option of traveling with the campaign on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday, June 4-6.

But the Clinton campaign – which regularly informs journalists of travel plans just hours beforehand – is offering no other details, including possible destinations.

Said Clinton spokesman Jay Carson. "There are a lot of places for us to go between June 4 and November."

    STUPID STUPID STUPID. There will be NO place for you to go after June 4th, believe that. Have you heard? Pelosi and the crew are "putting it down" and you won't have a legal leg to stand on–you will no longer be relevant come the close of the primaries. Get it? I hope so...there will be NO taking it to the convention. Or, weren't you privy to Pelosi's first post this morning???!!

    Well hopefully HIllary finally steps out of the race and allows the Democrats to get things together. Obama has won FAIR and SQUARE.

    If Hillary cannot win the her primary, how can she win the general?

    I have a suggestion as to where the Clintons can go after June 4th.

    In that case the reporters should respectfully decline and go and cover real news like the general election.

    Of course, she's going to keep going on!

    Don't you people understand? That's all The Clintons know how to
    do. That's all they've ever done, all their lives, is campaign. Both of
    their lives has been nothing but one, long 35-year campaign. From
    the time they got out of college, until today, that's all they're qualified
    to do.

    And, they both realize, that on the very day that the campaigning stops,
    that is the day that their lives are effectively over. There's nothing left
    after that. No more campaign, no more Bill and Hillary Clinton.

    Period.

    I hope she keeps going and going and going, just like the bunny but in her case I hope she goes over the edge Saturday at the DNC meeting and then goes on a bridge to nowhere.

    Keep going, Senator. Keep going while Obama confirms the nomination and wins in November. I'm sure you'll get there someday, where ever that is.

    Are we surprised absolutely not. It's unfortunate that the Clinton's are willing to destroy the party one for which they worked so hard in the past. However, that does not give them an ENTITLEMENT>

    Hillary is trying to mkae sure she ruins Obama's chance in Nov. She is clearly planning the victim role to the fullest... If she destroys the party people will not forget and if she run again... she will not win.. she can't run her campaign let alone a country......

    Regarding the statement from Jay Carson "There are a lot of places for us to go between June 4 and November". Another words, if Hillary and Bill don't get there way, it will only take between June 4 and November to try and destroy the Democratic Party for one's own selfish reasons!

    Someone (Pelosi? Ried? Dean? Gore?) needs to put Hillary's campaign out of its misery.

    Let's hope the superdelegates are merciful.

    IT IS NOT A MATTER OF HAVING A NOMINEE; WE SHOULD HAVE THE ONE WHO CAN WIN IN THE GENERAL ELECTION.
    IN THE FUTURE PLEASE CHANGE THE RULES WITH PRIMARY AND CANDIDATE WITH MOST VOTES TAKE ALL.
    GENERAL ELECTIONS ARE PRIMARY AND NOT CAUCUSES.

    THE PURPOSE OF THE SUPER DELEGATES SHOULD BE THE CONSIDERATION OF ALL PRO AND CON. SEE WHO THE MOST QUALIFIED ANF IS PREPARED CANDIDATE THAT CAN WIN IN NOVEMBER.
    HILLARY WON THE BIG SWINGS STATES THAT ARE NECESSARY TO WIN IN NOVEMBER.
    SHE IS THE MOST ELECTABLE.
    DOES NOT TAKE THE BLUE STATES FOR GRANTED, HAVE THE ENTIRE VOTE COUNTED, TOO MANY PEOPLE ARE DISENFRANCHISED.
    HILLARY 08
