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."

    Hillary i splanning on stealing this nomination. She has no ethics, no party loyalty and especially no loyalty to the "little people". Any multi-millionaire that can take money from a child – who sold his bike and video games to get it – has no scruples whatsoever.

    She lied about NAFTA, Bosnia, and Ireland. Sha has proposed an ill-advised gas tax reduction simply to pander to voters. She stole the Ohio primary by putting out vicious lies about Obama and NAFTA just prior to the election. She has mismanaged her campaign and then cried about Obama outspending her – when she has raised nearly as much money as he has.

    Her husband sold presidential pardons before he left office – specifically to Marc Rich – and then she had the audacity to talk about Obama's nominal relationship to Ayers.

    I am sorry, I detest Hillary and her lying vicious evil ways. And just for the record, I am not being sexist because I feel the exact same way about her husband. the day she gets the nomination is the day I leave the democratic party and vote for McCain. After all, I am already bankrupt, my kids are too old to draft and i have no grandchildren. So waht do i care.

    I HAD TO CHANGE THE STATION FROM HANNITY & HOLMES LEAVING HILLARY OUT OF THE RACE REFERING TO THE MAP LAST NIGHT RE.VOTES IN STATES & ONLY COUNTING MCCAIN AND OBABMA. THE VOTES ARE NOT COUNTED STILL, AND THERE ARE A LOT OF CLINTON FANS WHO MUST ALSO GET DISCUSTED TURNING THE STATION AS I DO. HOW CAN YOU LEAVE HER OUT WHEN SHE'S STILL IN THE RACE? BILL IS RIGHT, STATEMENTS ON HILLARY'S TREATMENT BUT YOU KNOW THIS. THERE SHOULD BE SOME RESPECT, SO IF & WHEN SHE IS OUT, CLINTON FANS MAY "WANT TO WILLINGLY" GO FOR OBAMA OR JUST STAY HOME AND NOT VOTE. THERE ARE A LOT OF CLINTON VOTERS OUT THERE. THKS FOR THE DIME

    I BET $100,000,000.00 THAT HILLARY IS GOING TO RUN AS AN "INDEPENDENT"

    WHEN IT HAPPENS, CALL ME FOR A BEER.

    THAT IS THE PLAN. IF SHE CANNOT HAVE IT, "NOBODY WILL"

    Hillary appears to have lost her mind. She just can't come to grips with the situation in that mathmatically it's impossible for her to win.

    Yes I wouldn't put it past her at this point to be the next Joe Lieberman and either run as an independent or join the Republican party.

    Obama would probably get more votes than McCain and Clinton regardless.

    READ CNN'S LEAD ARTICLE TODAY: About how Obama played "hardball" (DIRTY!) in his first Chicago Senate campaign. A real eye-opener about "Mr Clean"!
    • Used Chicago rules to invalidate voting petition signatures of 3 challengers
    • Challenged every single one on “technicalities”
    • If names were printed instead of signed in cursive writing, they were declared invalid.
    • If signatures were good but the person gathering the signatures wasn't properly registered, those petitions also were thrown out
    • "It's not the tactics of 'let's all people come together and put your best ideas forward and the best ideas win,” as he now likes to claim
    • "That's the spin; that's in the Kool-Aid.”
    • In the end, he made sure voters had just one choice: HIM

  11. tell the truth

    Please stop people. You can not measure the popular vote. This is a fact. The rules are delgates which Obama has more. Please stop this is sounded stupid. I repeat you can not measure the popular vote. No way. Please talk with facts. You ask your kids to tell the truth but you can not. This is what is wrong in American. People do not want to tell the truth.

    Bill,
    you succeeded in getting Bush elected twice so your wife could waltz into the whitehouse, but you lost the primary. The last eight years of evil rule was all in vein. The pendulum is ready to swing, but not to your wife. You're plan has taken it's toll on the world and especially our country. Now that it isn't going to work, the least you could do is stop the bleeding.

  16. Figures!!!

    They are really getting to be the jokers of the world...I cannot believe they will continue to campaign for her to win the nomination. At least I hope not. Hopefully that whole Hillary group will try and unite the party and and once again be someone we can look up to as a partner...

    Go Obama!!!

    I don't know what to think of this.

    It is hard for someone rich and entitled to hear and believe "NO". I think she will continue and it will be her fault if the Democrats do not win in November. I also don't believe she cares at all. She will blame Obama for the loss and claim if she had been the nominee the Democrats would have won. She might even try to run again. This is endless. Bill is smart enough to end this but if he doesn't do everything he can to get her elected I see him apartment hunting. The only reason she has hung on to him is that he is suppose to give her the help she deserves. The clintons are a discrace to this country and the fact that people are supporting them just makes us look worst.
