Hillary Says She’s Like ‘Rocky’ (Who Er… Lost)

From her undying fans at the Associated Press:

Clinton likens herself to ‘Rocky’

By BETH FOUHY, Associated Press Writer

PHILADELPHIA – Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton says she has something in common with legendary film boxer Rocky Balboa — she’s not a quitter.

Recalling a famous scene on the steps of the Philadelphia Museum of Art from the 1976 Oscar-winning film "Rocky," Clinton said that ending her presidential campaign now would be as if "Rocky Balboa had gotten halfway up those art museum steps and said, ‘Well, I guess that’s about far enough.’"

"Let me tell you something, when it comes to finishing a fight, Rocky and I have a lot in common. I never quit. I never give up. And neither do the American people," Clinton said in excerpts of prepared remarks to be given Tuesday to a meeting of the Pennsylvania AFL-CIO…

"The Republicans aren’t going to give up without a fight," Clinton said. "And no matter how beautiful your rhetoric, the Republicans aren’t going to turn off their attack machine — it doesn’t have an off-switch."

"But one thing you know about me is that when I say I’ll fight for you, I’ll fight for you," the New York senator said. "I know what it’s like to stumble. I know what it means to get knocked down. But I’ve never stayed down, and I never will." …

Someone needs to remind Mrs. Clinton that Rocky lost.

Apollo Creed (a black man) was given the victory by the judges (the superdelegates) in a split decision.

But when has Hillary every bothered her pretty little head (meaning small) with such petty details?
