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."

    Is the rumor correct that Hillary is planning to divorce Bill if she does not win the nomination?

    It's quite clear that this is a revealing comment that Hillary plans on being in the public eye between now and November, unfortunately for her, campaigning for Barack Obama.

    I'm really looking forward to seeing Clinton keep campaigning while Obama is giving his victory speech... after the general elections. I'm sure after this is over and done... Hillary's next step is to campaign to be the president of another country. After all.. if she could run as a NY'r for state senate... why not take the next step.. I'm sure Canada's going to be having elections sometime soon 🙂

    Hillary is promised by McSame, to pay all her dept, if she stayed till the convintion.
    The only way to end this race is to push Hillary out. Obama will be naiive if he thought otherwise
    Pelosi knows better and she will know how to push her out
    Then the party will be healthier

    someone needs to shake Hillary and Bill back to reality
    I mean to think we have to go thru another primary night where we have to listen to media BRAG about her double digit win is getting beyond boring to just plain annoying!!!
    Barring some some underhanded or deceitful act which I might add is not beyond those two, this thing is over!!!
    They need to get over their great big EGOS and face that fact

    As Martin Roland said, Clintonites think they are first, the party second.

    They want to do more damage to the party.

    Looks like Roland Martin was right.

    I just wish she would bow out already. Okay, fine stay in till June 3rd but it is obvious to everyone but Hillary that she has lost. You put up a good fight but if we want the White House back in November she needs to go away!!!! Obama has won and won big time and he will be our next President of The United States. GO OBAMA!!!!

    Hopefully this is just posturing until Tuesday is over...the proverbial we're not quitting until we quit. Lets hope.

    Why are we at all surprised, not just that she will keep in this thing...but that CNN will keep reporting about it. If the media would stop giving the Clintons air time this thing would have been over a long time ago...but they kept feeding the beast and now the beast is out of control. Congrats Clinton News Network...you should be ashamed of your bias.

  18. Turnabout is Fair Play

    Hopefully the hell back to NY and out of our lives forever. This isn't the '90s anymore and we need someone fresh and new for the 2000s and old style politics ain't it. Get thee behind us Hillary!

    Obama/Sebelius '08!

    I'll vote for a Clinton before I'll vote for another Carter.

    Good. Hillary needs to take this to the Democratic Convention in Denver. Obama will not steal this nomination from the will of the people. Hillary has more votes, and Obama is unelectable. He's done more harm to the democratic party than anyone in recent history. She needs to fight this out and become the democratic nominee.

    Hillary will not be bullied by party elitists and special interests (aka, those backing Obama).
