Hillary: “More Determined Than Ever”

Make no mistake about it… Hillary Clinton is still “in to win.”

She told supporters tonight in Charleston, West Virginia: “I am more determined than ever to carry on this campaign. I am in this race because I believe I am the strongest candidate. … I can lead this party to victory in the general election if you lead me to victory now.”

Watch a clip from Hillary’s speech here:

I have to concur with Jeralyn: “The media is not going to determine the future of the Democratic party. Voters are.”

UPDATE: The full text of Hillary Clinton’s victory speech in Charleston, West Virginia is here and the full video is available on MSNBC (note we had the MSNBC video embeded, but it is causing slow loading for The Dem Daily).

Salon notes this about Clinton’s speech last night:

Once the speech ended, Clinton spent another 45 minutes working a rope line near the stage, as adoring fans pressed themselves up against the velvet barriers (and Secret Service agents) and passed books, campaign buttons, T-shirts, scraps of paper — whatever they had handy — to aides for her to sign. A troop of Girl Scouts gave her a patch, embroidered with the White House and “Madame President,” which they said was part of a project they were working on (presumably to elect women to high office). “When I was a Girl Scout, we never had a patch like that,” Clinton told them.

    How many delegates for West Virginia ? Team up and sign in ! Review voices across America question # 1 and end the mandates on NCLB before it bankrupts public education and disrupts our entire educational system of which it already has ! It’s not working ! Compare Clinton’s agenda to Obama’s and the detail,substance and experience she brings to the table ! That’s serious and she’s the best problem solver for the nation ! What a fighter and it scares me they’re saying she might not win and it’s almost shocking when you compare her agenda to Obama’s. Not only that but her accomplishnents and experience is so far beyond Obama that the only math that’s not adding up, is why this race is so close ! Punish the people of FL. and MI. for voting and not counting their votes ? Is that why we keep hearing we have a broken gov ? We have leaders that are playing games in politics, we don’t have time for in America ! We need to solve problems and find positive solutions and counting votes is a great start ! May meeting ? 10 delegates that will decide for all of America in this very tight race and they will take the solutions back to the DNC ? Who will be involved in this meeting and what are their names ? Do Americans get to view this meeting ? Yes and Anderson Cooper asked last night about that and I for one want to see it and know what they’re doing ! Honestly,if the leaders in Fl. and MI. had been doing their jobs,would we be in the confusion with FL. and MI. to begin with ? Who were the leaders that broke the rules ? Millions voted and we have a question in America if their votes will be counted ? We have super,super delegates,super delegates and then delegates ? Yesterday,I viewed a petition moving to get rid of all that in the country ! God bless the delegates but count the people’s votes ! Obama,didn’t win Fl. and there’s a huge argument on their votes being counted. Refused to do it over and this was offered to be paid for by Clinton’s team ? That’s what they are reporting ! Obama blocked it and why ? The people are in the streets and more will go if votes in America aren’t counted and it was not the people’s fault as millions went to vote !

    Not only CAN she win, it seems as if she MUST. We and our country desperately need her…. her experience, her strength, her brilliance, her compassion, her ability to have a broad enough base of voters to carry the election against McCain in the fall. She gave BO a THUMPING (cnn quote) last night, by any measure and will do the same to MC.

    We love her and want her to win this and She can do it!

  4. Peace Out For Unity says:

    Like the lightening strikes ! Go Clinton ! Great interview on CNN ! She does work her heart out and she’s amazing ! NC went with Obama and Edwards followed the crowd and majority.The race goes on and this ballgame is in over time ! It’s far from over ! God’s speed Clinton and send her lots more energy to keep fighting and on her, always go for the people of America !

  5. Peace Out For Unity says:

    Motivating speeches but where is the action and substance on the issues we face with intelligent solutions and the experience and wisdom ready day one to get the job done ? Strike back like lightening ! Go Clinton ! Let them thunder on with speeches but she’ll get the job done,details included !

  6. Peace Out For Unity says:

    Metaphorically,you hear the thunderous speeches but you better look out ,lightening is going to strike ! It’s going to light up the White House for Hillary !

  7. Peace Out For Unity says:

    CNN,the magical math man John sits in for Larry King and sells Obama.You need a new worm for your hook and it didn’t work ! He didn’t sign on for Obama but good try ! Time Magizine ? Did Obama pay for that ?

  8. Norma says:

    I was surprized by Edward’s endorsement as Hillary has spoken many times of her health plan similar to Edwards’ partial government subsidies plan.

    I’m still for Clinton – if only for her terms as Senator of the most populace state in the union and because HER endorsements are not coming from the WASHINGTON INSIDER CLUB.

    Obama says he wants “change”, but I see all his endorsees are exactly the opposite: Ted Kennedy & the Kennedys, Jay Rockefeller, John Kerry, Pat Leahy, Bill Richardson, Robt Reich, Dick Lugar…… IS THAT CHANGE? ? ?

  9. Kendall Johnson says:

    CLINTON MAY NOT WIN THE NOMINATION, BUT SHE WILL EXPOSE THE DNC AND HOW THEY DISENFRANCHIZED VOTERS, RIGGED THE ELECTION, AND ENGAGED IN RACE BAITING AND SEXISM!!!!!!!!

  10. Kendall Johnson says:

  12. Mitch says:

    I’m a registered Independent living in Florida. As an Independent I do not vote by party but vote for the best candidate. The best candidate is Hillary Clinton. I will be voting for Hillary in November (and it will count). I will not vote for the media creation Barack Obama. If Hillary is not the Democratic nominee, I will still be voting for her

    The relentless hate that MSNBC has spewed against Senator Clinton has reached a critical mass.

    Recently Keith Obermann of MSNBC made statements that sounded as though he was advocating for the physical ASSAULT and or RAPE OF SENATOR CLINTON as a means of convincing her to quit the race for the democtratic presidential nomination.

    The comment went like this: “someone should take her into a back room and when he was done, only HE comes out.”

    The outragous and insulting connotations and images that this comment conjers can only mean one thing, to assault and or rape her. Wake up women and men!!!! Now MSNBC has advocated for the ASSAULT and RAPE of a United States Senator!!!!

    And where is the democratic UNITER, Senator Obama denouncing this advocation???Nowhere!!!! Instead, he basks in the light of male privalage and he trapes John Edwards accross the country as this working class prop in an effort to pull white male working class voters away from Clinton!!!!

    The Party Male Leaders say nothing to denounce the misogyny. Instead they chime in with more misogyny and take Obama’s side in an effort to pressure Clinton to leave the race!!!

    The truth is that they know Clinton would win the general election given the nomination, but they just won’t let a woman have a chance. That’s why they have done everything they can to cut her down. The disenfranchisement of MI and Fl, whose demographics clearly favored her, is proof positive of the measures many in the democratic will take to ensure that she does not win.. Moreover MSNBC and CNN, who profess to be the progressive alternative to conservitive media have engaged in a level of nagetive and misogynistic media coverage of Senator Clinton, that is like nothing we have ever seen.

    HERE’S A MESSAGE TO HOWARD DEAN AND THE REST OF THE BIGOT BOYS THAT MAKE UP THE MALE DEMOCRATIC LEADERSHIP. CALL IT SOUR GRAPES OR WHAT YOU MAY, BUT YOU DEMOCRATIC MEN HAVE DIVIDED THIS PARTY BY GENDER, AND THERE WILL BE HELL TO PAY!!!!!!! YOU CAN’T WIN WITHOUT US AND YOUR THREATS ABOUT ROE V. WADE WON’T WORK!!!!

    YOUR MISOGYNY WILL NOT BE FORGOTTEN!!! YOU CAN FORGET ABOUT OBAMA BEING PRESIDENT!!!!!! ITS NOT GOING TO HAPPEN. THE ELECTORAL MATH DOESN’T WORK FOR HIM AND YOU ALREADY KNOW IT!!!!! IT IS YOU , NOT CLINTON OR THE REPUBLICANS OR ANYONE ELSE, WHO IS RESPONSIBLE FOR 4 MORE YEARS OF REPUBLICANS!!!!

    HISTORY WILL SHOW THAT IT WAS THE MALE MISOGYNEY WITHIN THE DEMOCRATIC LEADERSHIP THAT DENIED THE PEOPLE A DEMOCRATIC PRESIDENT AT THIS CRUCIAL TIME IN HISTORY!!!!!!!!

    They (DNC & friends) are afraid Hillary Clinton would come into the Whitehouse and make a complete turn around, to better the country and the American people…allowing that to happen is not in their cards. Hillary would put them to shame, they would not tolerate the ridicule.

    “Each time a man stands up for an ideal or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring, those ripples build a current that can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance. – RFK”
