Clinton Wins Pennsylvania

Hillary Rodham Clinton is the winner of the Pennsylvania primary.

The former first lady secured roughly 55% of the vote, to Barack Obama's 45%.

Exit polling shows Clinton getting support from blue-collar
workers, women and white voters.

The economy is a looming issue in Pennsylvania. More than 80
percent of those surveyed as they left their polling places say
they believe the country is already in a recession.

Clinton won despite being heavily outspent by her rival in a
six-week campaign that allowed plenty of time for both candidates
to court voters.

Clinton says "the tide has turned" in her effort to become the next president.

Clinton made the comment at a victory celebration in
Philadelphia. Clinton said some people had counted her out, but that "the
American people don't quit and they deserve a president who doesn't
quit either."

The New York senator said she'll continue campaigning and will
work to solve problems, not just talk about them. She also made an
appeal for financial help, asking donors to go to her Web site and
show their support.

Clinton was joined by her husband, former President Clinton, her
daughter, brother and mother.

    The sad fact is, that it doesn't matter who of these two make it, they are both bad choices for president. Neither of these two candidates can give the US the kind of leadership we need to recover from a recession and to effectively pull back in our involvement of international affairs.

    I would like to commend Hillary for being the first lady Presidential candidate to make it this far.
