Election 08, Did Hillary Really Win Anything?

Hillary "The Liar" Clinton Wins Pennsylvania. But did she really win anything?

Field Negro says it best,
The Bill and Hillary show continues. Black bloggers have suggested she concede for some time. Blacks across the world have asked Hillary to Concede Hillary and Unify the Democratic Party.

There are a lot of established media seeing through this madness as well. The NY Times has noted her low road to victory.

The NY Times said, "
Voters are getting tired of it; it is demeaning the political process; and it does not work. It is past time for Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton to acknowledge that the negativity, for which she is mostly responsible, does nothing but harm to her, her opponent, her party and the 2008 election."

Also, as reported by Bill Lambrecht with the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, Clinton faces uphill battle despite win in Pennsylvania primary. Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton's victory in the Pennsylvania primary Tuesday keeps her on the playing field against Sen. Barack Obama in the extended World Series of Democratic politics, but the game for her now becomes harder.

Her finances bleak and Obama still leading in every statistic despite a few recent stumbles, Clinton's campaign faces a steady uphill climb as the Democratic Party winds up this historic primary season with a six-week stretch of contests from Oregon to Puerto Rico.

The next big event: May 6 primaries in Indiana, where Clinton has another fighting chance, and North Carolina, where she is a big underdog, en route to the primary season's June 3 windup in Montana and South Dakota.

"She did what she had to do, shore up her base. And the race goes on and on and on," said Terry Madonna, director of the Floyd Institute's Center for Politics and Public Affairs at Franklin and Marshall College in Lancaster, Pa.

With 99 percent of precincts counted, Clinton had 55 percent of the vote to Obama's 45 percent. Despite losing the Pennsylvania popular vote, Obama retained an overall lead of at least 500,000 votes.

The Illinois senator also scored heavily in the delegate hunt to keep an insurmountable lead in pledged delegates. A preliminary tabulation showed Clinton gaining at least 66 national convention delegates to 57 for Obama, with 35 still to be awarded. That gives Obama 1,705 delegates and Clinton 1,575, according to the AP tally. More HERE

AAPP: I was surprised that Hillary did not throw Gov.Rendell under the bus for praising the work of Minsister Louis Farrakan and the Nation of Islam. But then again, why should you or I be surprised at Hillary Clinton. She wanted to win at all cost. Right?

It's time to sign the Online Petition and urges Hillary Clinton to concede.
