Clinton Says Nomination Will Be 'Long Process'
Though she led in most polls in Texas and Ohio headed into Tuesday’s contests, Sen. Hillary Clinton, D-N.Y., has hinted that even if she doesn’t win more delegates than Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., she would keep her campaign going. Ten states will vote after Tuesday.
On Monday, Clinton told reporters she was “just getting warmed up,” and Tuesday morning she said securing the nomination is a “long process.” She also offered a reminder that her husband, former President Bill Clinton, did not secure the Democratic nomination in 1992 until June.
Hillary Clinton spent the morning in Dallas wrapping up her Texas campaign. She greeted diners at Herrera’s Cafe. (It’s a Dallas institution, says the New York Times, which recommends “an enchilada plate, one cheese, one chicken, one beef, and a hard taco on the side.”)
“I feel really good not only about the primary today, but about what’s possible for us here in Texas come the fall,” Clinton said, according to the Dallas Morning News.
Clinton plans to spend Tuesday evening in Columbus, Ohio, where she’ll watch the results come in. In Ohio, the latest Zogby poll showed Clinton and Obama tied.
CBS offered some insight into the minds the Ohio voters at a bowling alley, scoring 300 on stretching a pun: “Voters ‘Pin’ Down Candidates: Harry Smith ‘strikes’ up politics talk with Ohio voters on the lanes. Ohioans explain the issues that really bowl them over.”
