It's over. She lasted till the end. Big Speech in NY with Bill and Chelsea present and Obama expected to go over the top by mid-week. Reading between the lines, my guess is that she will concede.

"My political obituary has yet to be written, and we're going forward," Clinton said aboard her campaign plane Sunday night. "It is not over 'til it's over."

She told reporters, "One thing about superdelegates is that they can change their minds."
Uh huh. She's just going to give up. Right.

Nice wording in that article, btw:

The news of her post-primary speech back in New York came at the same time the senator sounded defiant, starting the week with an insurgent strategy not only to win over undecided superdelegates but potentially to peel away rival Barack Obama's support from those party leaders and elected officials who already have committed to back him for the nomination.
That writer has a crush on Obama.

A hillary "concession" speech would sound something like this..

"I really won, but because party leaders have threatened to kill Chelsea, I will step aside and let that black man who doesnt appeal to white america go on to defeat in November. To all the angry women out there who supported me, I say not to worry, we've done enough damage to my opponent that he'll be toast in the fall, then that old geezer will get the white house, but he'll botch it up so bad that they'll come begging for me to run again in 2012, until then, Barack Obama, go to hell".

I support Hillary Clinton.

Hillary Clinton should keep campaigning past the convention. Hillary Clinton will be the next President of the United States.

Woot Hillary

No. It'll be a great speech. I don't know when she's going to make it, but I do know it will be a stellar moment. Hillary can be an incredible speaker at moments like this.

By all accounts, Obama will be the nominee. That doesn't mean I hope she quits. Like you, I won't believe it til I see/hear it. And I wouldn't have it any other way.
