Hillary Crows: “I’m Just Getting Warmed Up”

From from her loyal lickspittle lackeys at the Associated Press:

Clinton suggests she’ll stay in the race

By MIKE GLOVER, Associated Press Writer

TOLEDO, Ohio – Democratic Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton suggested Monday she’ll press on with the campaign after Tuesday’s crucial primaries, arguing that momentum is on her side despite 11 straight losses to rival Sen. Barack Obama.

I’m just getting warmed up,” Clinton told reporters, looking ahead to a busy day of campaign events in Ohio and Texas where polls show a close race ahead of Tuesday’s primaries.

Clinton’s husband, former President Clinton, has asserted that his wife must win both Texas and Ohio to keep her campaign alive. On Friday, Hillary Clinton’s advisers recast the stakes, saying if Obama lost any of the four presidential primaries Tuesday — Rhode Island and Vermont also vote — it would show Democrats are having second thoughts about him.

Hillary Clinton predicted success on Tuesday and looked ahead to the next big contest — Pennsylvania on April 22.

“I think I know what’s happening and I believe I’m going to do very well tomorrow,” she said. “I think that’s going to be a very significant message to the country, and then we move on to Pennsylvania and the states coming up.” …

As for Tuesday, Clinton said, “Obviously it’s within the margin of error in both the popular vote and the delegate count. Ohio is the key to winning the presidency and I’m excited about tomorrow and I’m looking forward to it.”

Speaking with reporters on her campaign plane, Clinton argued that the competitive primary contest would be good for the party heading into the November elections, a view at odds with some in the party who fear a lengthy, divisive nomination fight would weaken the Democratic candidate.

“Hard-fought primary contests are a part of American politics,” said Clinton. “We’re going to have a hard-fought contest, we’re going to have a unified Democratic Party, we’re going to get behind whoever our nominee is and we’re going to win in November.”

Lacking from Clinton’s comments was the traditional confidence assurance of victory.

“I intend to so as well as I can on Tuesday and we’ll see what happens after that,” she said

One always suspected that it took the cold and joyless one a long time to “warm up.”

Clinton argued that the competitive primary contest would be good for the party heading into the November elections…

Who can argue with logic like that?
