Clinton concedes...?

We already knew it was bound to happen. Too bad she didn't keep pushing. It would have been good to see the Democrats battle it out in Denver. Operation chaos may have contributed something, but it may not have been enough.

What is it going to take to cripple the Obama campaign? He has survived close ties to racism (though I expect this is not the end of that issue).

Several minutes in, her speech turned to the question of who can win the general election. She talked about 18 million votes she received in the primaries which was the largest number of votes for one candidate in primary history. That was 35 million votes total in the primaries (a record). She talked about who can with 270 electoral votes in November.

"The challenges are great, but our determination is greater."

Her speech sounded like it was to be a concession speech. Then it sounded like she was laying out the case for her continuing to fight for the nomination.

No decision tonight.

This has been the most involved I have ever been in an election. With that said, I didnt get to see hear her speak but in listening to her campaign chairman speak on CNN it appears as though she has realized the inevitable. . .In addition Obama is only 4 delegates away from locking up the nomination.

She probably has a strategy to raise some money as quickly as possible to pay off some of her campaign debt. She is said to also be interested in the VP position. Maybe she wouldn't mind being under Obama.

If she just conceded, and threw her support to Obama, both of these goals might be that much more likely to fail.

Again with the extreme scenarios and conspiracy theories. Too much churchgoing will do that to you. And remember, I don't like Hillary one bit.

Oh well, you also think earth is 6k years old...

Where I have I ever made that claim? Show me. I'll tell you now, you will not find it because I have never made that claim. Use your argument against somebody else, fool!

Who do you think murdered Vince Foster?

How about some proof?

IIRC, it was deemed a suicide.

There are a lot of questions about the death of Vince Foster that have gone unanswered and left many people unsatisfied that the case was called suicide. It's too old of a case to motivate me much now, though it is "interesting" to contemplate. There is plenty that can be found on websites that document the questions better than I can ask them myself. I do not try to provide the answers to those questions, though the implication is foul play.

While I agree with you that there were a lot of unanswered questions, it is far from your conclusion that the Clintons murdered Vince Foster. Anyone making that in an official capacity would be sued for Libel.

I don't make any claim that either of the Clintons did it, but I ask the question of who did. And why was it "swept under the carpet" rather than fully investigated. There is a lot of evidence of foul play, yet that evidence was dismissed before it was even examined. It never got a fair hearing. Somebody has something to hide.
