Hillary Clinton Tells The Truth!
Sorry. April Fools. We aren't living in Bizarro World so instead it's another day, another whopper from the Clinton campaign:
"My take on it is a lot of Senator Obama's supporters want to end this race because they don't want people to keep voting," (Clinton) told CBS affiliate KTVQ in Billings, Mont. "That's just the opposite of what I believe. We want people to vote. I want the people of Montana to vote, don't you?"True, some Obama supporters want Hillary to drop out of the race, but not because they don't want people to vote but because Clinton cannot possibly (honestly) overtake Obama's lead in both the popular vote and delegate votes. And they correctly believe that the longer Clinton stays in the race, the greater the damage to the Democrat's chances in November. But that's not the really big Clinton lie from this interview. Check this out:
Responding to Clinton, Obama spokesman Bill Burton said: "That is completely laughable from a campaign that thought the race would be over on February 5. We have encouraged our supporters to do no such thing and Senator Obama was very clear he supports her carrying on in this race."
Obama has been picking up superdelegates at a rapid clip while Clinton's success with that group has slowed considerably.And if you believe that, you'll also believe Hillary was under sniper attack in Bosnia and brought peace to Ireland...
"I don't even keep track of it, I can't even tell you that figure," Clinton said when asked by Pittsburgh CBS affiliate KDKA how many superdelegates had endorsed her in recent weeks.
