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."

    I am really surprised how much Hillary supporters know about the election process!!They keep telling her "keep goin,keep goin",but what they don't realize is that this campaign is only days to be over,and that they can vote a million times but their votes will not count at all!!!This is all about delegates,not votes!!!!!!!!!And what happened in Florida and Michigan is a fair deal.They both knew they couldn't vote when they wanted to,and they did.We can NOT change the rules of the game,because she is losing!Anyway,Obama is winning in all spects: more pledge delegates,more superdelegates,more Primaries won,more people voting for him.What else does she want?!!!She can still come back in 2012.

    If Obama doesn't have enough delegates, then I say good for her.

    Finally, the GOP has an opportunity to win the African American vote. Better start reaching out now, Republicans.

    I don't get why everyone feels the NEED to end the democratic process.

    WHY does Clinton have to concede prior to the convention?

    This race is so CLOSE (neither candidate has enough elected delegates to win the nomination) - and NO one will WIN until all the votes are cast at the convention - so why not wait and let the process run it's course!!!

    We have had MALE candidates - with FAR fewer delegates than Clinton - take it all the way to the convention. So why is everyone attacking Clinton? Seems blatantly SEXIST.

    The Clinton campaign continue to make promises that are misleading to the citizens that remain loyal to her. It is imoral to pander to that extent. Puerto Rico's state hood can not be delivered by one person, gas prices are complicated, sitting in the White House with your husband that is the president gives her no special powers.
    Where were all of these rule protesters when the rules were made and approved. The agurement seems foolish to me.

    I feel sorry for her!!!!

    ok CNN... I have been waiting for you to post the latest, why do the other stations carry the story and you don't? Are you out to protect Sen. Obama, again?

    Take it all the way to the convention floor. The first votes are committed the second is not. If the majic number is not reached on the first vote, it is anybodies game. I will write in Hillary Clinton on my ballot in November, if she is not the nominee. Obamas' church may cause his campaign to emplode between now and then. I pray for devine intervention...

    The place to go is home if you are not going to work in Obama's camp.

    I always liked the Clintons; but, to see how they have put themselves ahead of the country for their own agrandizement is pathetic! If Hillary's selfishly delusional campaign results in a republican win in the general and the war in Iraq is extended–that will be a bigger tragedy than her vote to get us into this war in the first place.

    Hillary is staying on the race because her supporters want it so.

    It is shameful that so many Democrats have called for her to give up, and is also shameful that many on the DNC have not stayed neutral.

    This all boils down to Hillary can't except the fact that her and Bill's once powerful machine was beaten by a junior Senator with an idea of how to run a 21st century campaign. They were outmaneuvered, outgunned, and outcontributed. She had no plan after Super Tuesday. Her annointing didn't happen and they spent weeks in disbelief. That is simply the facts.

    I do find it quite amazing how Clinton supporters spew the EXACT same line of nonsense that she and Bill use. Apparently if you say something enough it must be true. How gullible we are. If anyone thinks that Hillary is doing this for you, YOU MUST BE STUPID!!! She is no different than any politician. She is doing this for her own selfish interests. Please people, wake up!!!! Think for yourselves, not what some tired old politician wants you to think. Don't follow blindly down this same old path. I was hoping we were finally better than that.

    It's ok, let her rage on! She's already lost so don't worry everyone! All the Hillary supporters are a force in this country, and they should have their voice and vote, and the superdelegates should have a chance to weigh in on their decision. Patience everyone.... she's just putting up a good fight. There is an upside to this: Fighting Hillary has given Obama an edge against McCain. McCain has nothing on Obama and everyone knows it. Even Rupert Murdoch himself has acknowledged this. It is irelevent whether or not Hillary keeps contending, Obama is going to smash McCain!!!!

    If you haven't figured it out yet, rules are for the rest of us...
    not for Clintons.

    I can't wait for the end of his finger waving and her raspy screech. I'ts like I'm stuck in bad nightmare in the 90's and I can't wake up!

    Funny how they usually only give the press a couple of hours notice and now they are giving them several days. Must be the start of a new game Hillary is playing. Hillary, don't try to tell me this is all for the good of the party.
