Clinton talks to boisterous crowd

Surrounded by more than 500 supporters at the Columbus Athenaeum, Sen. Hillary Clinton, at 11:15 p.m. declared, "Thank you Ohio. You know what they say, as Ohio goes, so goes the nation."

"Well, this nation is coming back and so is this campaign."

A man interrupted the New York senator by shouting, "It's a Hillary state."

"Yes she will. Yes she will," the crowd shouted.

"Ohio has written a new chapter in the campaign,'' Clinton said, "and we are just getting started."

Hillary is the anti-Hope. Why so many flock to her web of deceit and culture of corruption remains a mystery.

The Ohio results represent a "triumph" of smear, defame, distort ,and destroy.

What a proud day for our party.

I remain.....Obama 08
Be the Change

Congratulations, Sen. Clinton, and to all who prevailed despite the nay-sayers.
You are a strong, intelligent, thoughtful, concerned person and I'm so proud of our state for correctly choosing you as our Democratic nominee. We'll meet you in Pennsylvania!

clintons victory is tainted at best by neocon crossover voting. she is a blue dog democrat who will continue four more years of george bush's failed policies.

McCain gets my vote in November.

Why don't the republicans just stay out of the Democratic race if you are not truly going to support either Hillary or Barack. This is not a game. Are you guys really that afraid for McCain to go up against Obama? Hillary won Ohio because foolish Republicans listented to Rush and Cunningham, and voted for her yesterday. If she gets the nomination, then what? She will be a fool if she does not ask Barack to be her VP. That's the only way she will get back in the White House. She is so power hungry its pathetic!

On March 4, 1193, Saladin, the Musilm warrior who opposed the Crusades, died. On March 4, 2008, Obama, the Muslim warrior who maquerades as a Christian, died at Ohio's polls. History repeats?

Will David Crowley now jump ship and support Hillary since she's winning? That was his stated reason for backing Kabaka Oprahbama.

"The people of Ohio very clearly said that it should be me" - Hillary

That says it all...our ploy worked to absolute perfection. What unabashed arrogance from this woman, she wins two states based on Republicans crossing over to sully the votes, and she'll forget that she'd lost 12 states in a row previous...

And people really want this lady as President?

How many delegates did Clinton win Texas by? 2, out of 126 counted so far.

How many delegates did Clinton win Ohio by? 12, out of 130 counted so far.

There is simply no way that Hillary can win the delegate count. None. All we Republicans did was to give Hillary 3 more months to attempt to lie, cheat, and steal her way into the Dem nomination...and the staunch Hillary supporters are crawling out of the woodwork, just like we thought they would...

Played like a fiddle.

Can't wait to see the dirt from the Clinton hate machine fly...it's what they are best at..

Be careful what you wish for, though, Hillary....the skeletons in your closet are "vast"....you may regret what you're about to do.

If I recall the 2000 hubbub correctly, liberals and Democrats insisted Al Gore be elected President because he won the popular vote and to hell with the Electoral College.

Why now are Oprahbahamians clamoring for the delegates to count but not the votes?

Hillary's only down by 300,000 including Florida. Why is everyone so afraid of an actual nominating convention where the candidate is chosen vs. this ADD-driven need to consolidate early?

McCain's the Republican. There will be a Democrat. Let it play out- the Republic will survive.

For the first time in my adult life I'm proud of my State. THANK YOU Michelle Obama! Now- no more questions- I've already answered eight! (tee hee)

As long as Hil stays in the ring, she and the other socialist will spend all their time and money wrecking each other, which will both deplete themselves and write McCain's campaign commercials. Granted, he's Ted Kennedy's lickspittle in most things too, but there is at least a chance he won't abandon our troops in Iraq, unlike the other two. So, to keep Hussein from "being the change" to Socialism and defeat, "YES SHE WILL" be his spoiler.

I'm an Independent, who tends to lean towards republicans, but didn't want to vote democrat yesterday for fear of "playing the game" incorrectly. So, I want to ask those of you who "crossed over", the reasoning behind your decision:

1. Voted Obama - because Hillary would be the worst president in history.
2. Voted Hillary - to keep the democratic race tight, thereby making Dems use more resources during primaries instead of presidential election; and have Obama and Hillary (mostly) sling mud that Republicans can use against the winner come presidential race time.
3. Voted Hillary - because she is so polarizing, negative, mean, and would be easier for McCain to beat than Obama

I'm not trying to pick fights with Hillary or Obama camp here. I just was curious what the mindset was of the crossover voters. Thanks.

John W. McCain has embraced every one of Bush's polocies. He admits that he doesn't understand the economy. He's a tired old man with a bad tempure.

A vote for George W. McCain is a vote for a 3rd Bush term.

Wow, 4:02, you're pretty helpless without spell check. Hope it's not because you wrote that while you were having a "bad tempure" too!

As to facts, the fact is that a vote for McCain is a vote for Ted Kennedy. He doesn't stop at reaching across the aisle, he gives TK a reach around too. It's a shame the Republicans chose not to run any Presidential candidates this year, but anything's got to be better than a thinly veiled terrorist or a socialist shrew.

I crossed over to vote Democratic because I was ashamed of the horrid performance of my former political party. I am a philosophical conservative but the people we elect have been grade-A monsters.

I've had a bad tempura before; I was sick for three days off that rotten shrimp.
