June 2, 2008 — With speculation crawling around the meaning of Bill Clinton’s statement that this may be the last day he campaigns, Hillary Clinton is as strident and rebellious in victory as ever. According to FOX News, Hillary Clinton says she is *@#$@$^ (my swears) NOT DROPPING OUT. She says that the magic number has NOT been reached and that they are NOT ACCEPTING the new number of 2118.
Yesterday, in Puerto Rico upon her 68% to 32%* gigantico, humongo win over Obama, Senator Clinton said:
And I want you to know that this election is really about your future. You voted even though some tried to tell you that your votes wouldn’t count. You voted for the person you believe will be the stronger nominee and the strongest president. And you are not alone. You are joining millions of people across the United States, more than 17.6 million, plus the votes that we’ve received today. People who don’t always make the headlines; who don’t always feel like your voices are being heard.
I think about these people all the time, because that’s who I care most about. The nurse on her second shift who still can’t pay her credit card bills; the worker who can’t afford the gas on the way to work, the waitress on her feet without health care. The small business owners saddled with rising energy bills; the college student who can’t afford to continue college; the farmer, the teacher, the trucker, the soldier, the veteran. The people yearning for a president who will rebuild the economy and a Commander-in-Chief who will restore our leadership and moral authority in the world.
Make calls! Contribute! Hillary Clinton for President.
* I’ve updated this to reflect the will of the voters. I mistakenly gave Obama an extra two percentage points in the first published version of this post, which is now correctly amended. Well, at least I didn’t do it on purpose and at least it was only 2 instead the 4 delegates that the DNC RBC willfully “hijacked” from Clinton.
