Clinton wins in Pennsylvania

NBC News projected Tuesday night that Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton had won Pennsylvania’s presidential primary, a victory that analysts said she had to have if she were to remain a credible candidate for the Democratic nomination.

Clinton, independent analysts and the campaign of Sen. Barack Obama of Illinois had predicted ahead of time that Clinton would win the state, where she enjoyed large leads in opinion polls until recently. But after closing the deficit in the last few weeks, Obama’s advisers said he would have the momentum unless Clinton won by a sizable margin.

Apparently Clinton scored her victory by winning the votes of blue-collar workers, women and whites in an election where the economy was the dominant concern. So Clinton goes on to fight another day.

This race continues and I don't know if this is good for the democratic party. I have a sense that if Hillary gets nominated, most of Obama's supporters are going to be very dis-pleased. If Obama wins it, then many Hillary supporters will also be too pissed to vote for Obama. This may only help McCain.

Don't care for any of the candidates...!! I would rather see Clinton get out of the Race

Hi Vulcan's Hammer - It is a dilemma for the Democrats. I wonder do you think that they will end up on the same ticket?
I can't even think about McCain as President ;p
Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment,

Hey Tom,
I am in the same boat as you. I don't like any on 'em.
Long time since you've been by. Really good to see you,
Hugs,
Carol

Does not matter who gets in I think.The wheels of the New World Order Agenda are in motion already. From on now there are only hard times in our futures. The sooner we realize that the better off we will be.

I wouldn't vote for either of them. The Democrats have been tossing around so many toxic PC bombs that ultimately I think the party may have hurt itself beyond repair.
I think it is unlikely that we will see an Obama/Clinton ticket. But you never know.
