Campaign Official: Clinton's Campaign Over

A campaign official says Hillary Rodham Clinton has decided to end her historic presidential campaign while leaving her options open to retain her delegates and promote her agenda.

The former first lady told House Democrats during a private
conference call that she will express support for Barack Obama's
candidacy and congratulate him for gathering the necessary
delegates to be the party's nominee.

Clinton's communications director, Howard Wolfson, says Clinton
will host an event in Washington Friday, during which she will
thank her supporters and express support for Obama and party unity.

Clinton is expected to urge once-warring Democrats to focus on
the general election and defeating Republican presidential
candidate John McCain.

    Hillary should just drop out altogether, resign her Senate seat, and just be Mrs. Bill Clinton for the rest of her life.

    To David, if you do get your sweet McCain I hope you pay for it. Don't gripe and complain about anything!

    Ok now I am really confussed! All I have been reading and hearing for months is American Citizens screaming that we don't need another Democrat as president but yet, thats pretty much all they have been voting for. John McCain, who is a Republican has not been on the forfront like Clinton and Obama over the past few months. He has been sitting back watching as the other two go head to head. Now that Clinton is dropping out, I feel is the time for McCain to step up to the plate and prove his worthyness as our next president. If Americans feel wholeheartedly that democrats are not what this country needs, then why do they continue to vote for one. Is this about the race or the "RACE"? I for one am going to stick by my word and I am not voting for another democrat. I feel the American people are barking more than biting! I am not going to be one of those who will regret my decision in a year or two. Stop crying about it, if your to scared to do anything about it!!
