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."

    Why isn't anyone but Anderson even commenting on the
    story about Barak's campaign in Chicago? Aren't we allowed?
    I think Barak is great and he will be a great President but the practices
    he used then fly in the face of his philosophy now....are we allowed to say that? Are we all ignoring it? I didn't get the memo....

    For those who think Obama can not win the general election you are being brain washed by the propaganda from the Clinton machine. This country is in such a bad way that Obama can sleep walk into the presidency.

    More nasties came out of the closed today on obama – Hillary needs to stay in until the convention. Let the green eyed monster Pelosi keep her mouth shut and the superdelegates wait until the convention which is what they were suppose to do in the first place.

    Time for a third party. Many want it and it's going to happen. Democracy can't be wrong. Hillary should run as an independent or start a third party. Let 120 million people decide who they want as president between McCain Obama or Hillary and screw the dnc with the deans brazile and pelosis. Freedom of choice. Make it happen and you 'll see real change.

    Stop lying; no America does not love Hillary. If they did why is she losing and trying to steal this election. Not to worry, the Clintons will go down in history as the worst family ever in American History. And, if Obama loses, he will only be the first African American to lose in the most racist country in the World. Don't get it twisted. Hillary will NEVER GET BACK INTO THE WHITE HOUSE.

    Hang in there Hillary. We want to win in November.
    Obama has blocked revotes in Fl and Mi-they are not going to be appeased and voting for him. Clinton supporters are so infuriated by media bias ,and the sexism that is rampant not only in the media but the Democratic establishment as well. Top that off by the bad behavior of Obama supporters ( they seem to have forgotten we are in the same party) and a HUGE backlash is forming. Finally, lunchbucket dems will vote McCain over Obama because he actually has some experience.

    As a side note-Nancy Pelosi is the Katherine Harris of this election cycle.

    You're going to go to bankruptcy court! You sure are irresponsible. Get a life. How about going to the Senate to represent the people who voted for you. Now, that's an idea! That's what I thought.

    Let her ride wherever she wants to all she is going to do is make the Democratic Party shut her down. They have been trying to be respectful to her and let her go out with some sembalance of dignity – oh well. She is going to do what she wants to do and the Democratic Party will do what they need to do.

    I think she's had one too many shots, publicity and others, during her Delusion '08 tour. What happened to don't drink and drive?

    Playtime's over! You've had your fun. Hand over the keys. The bus is in the ditch. Thanks.

    The Obama Tow Service is here to save us from you, I mean, get us back on the road to recovery.......thank you Mrs. Pelosi (she's like OnStar) for all your help.

    Yes, there are a lot of places to be going between June 4th and November. She will be campaigning for Senator Obama.....

    Seriously, I've been saying this all along, don't ever get complacent or think she is going to concede. She never will.

    Idiot Obamarites--why do you think she invited the press to be with her next week? Of course you don't know so I'll tell you. She's going to announce that she's running as an Independent.

    Take out your calculators Obamanians--

    As a Clinton supporter, I have accepted that Obama will be the nominee (and hopefully president!). I would love to see Clinton as president, but after Puerto Rico it will be time for this nonsense to end and for the party to come together around Obama. I believe that in order to truly unify the party, Obama must offer to make Clinton his VP.
