If Obama Wins The North Carolina Primary Will Hillary Concede?

Assuming she wins Pennsylvania, she will also need a strong win in North Carolina to keep her in this race. The polls show her losing to Obama in N.C.
Should she concede or should she take this all the way to the convention and try to convince superdelegates to vote for her even though she lost the most primaries, the most caucuses, the popular vote, and the delegate count, and that she is losing to Obama in the polls against McCain.

    Good question. It’s been increasingly funny to me that a few months ago I was complaining on here that the primary system was screwed up and that my vote wouldn’t even count since I am in NC and I figured the primaries would be over long before May. So, now it looks like my vote might make a small difference after all……….especially since I am for McCain, and have no reason to vote in the Republican primary. I might vote for Hillary too! A vote that she would not have gotten if McCain had not secured the nomination before now. I was relishing the possibility of being able to vote for McCain against that religious fanatic, Huckabee, since I knew that he would get lots of votes in this highly conservative state of NC. But now I’m free to not only help pick the Democrat Senatorial nominee to go up against Senator Elizabitch Dole’s re-election bid, but also I can decide whether to vote for Obama or Hillary too!!! If she doesn’t win big enough in PA, which I don’t think she will, then she should actually concede before the NC and Indiana primaries. But she probably won’t, since she is still counting on some miracle happening at the convention. Now I want to make this very clear: I am in no way for violence and hope that nothing bad happens during or after this election. But I still remember that very sad day that my own favorite candidate, Bobby Kennedy, who had basically just gotten through wrapping up the Democrat nomintation for President, got assasinated. And I certainly don’t think for a moment that this was the act of ONE crazy person. So, I don’t put it past some people, whoever they might be, to attempt to repeat this act on Obama. So, I can only hope that he has very good security. Apparently whoever decides on the level of security is needed for the candidates has already given a bit more to these candidates, but they probably should step it up a lot more. I hate for any election to be thwarted by assasinations. But since I’ve lived through 3 big ones in the U.S. in my lifetime and seen many others in other countries, such as Sadat, Bhutto, Begin(I think), and some others, I guess I’m just gun shy nowadays.

    She’ll stay in, she’s likely to win in PA. It’s hard to tell what will happen after that. She might wait till the convention and try and beg the superdelegates to vote for her since she’s won a lot of big swing states.

    She should… but she won’t she is too self centered to give it up. She’ll still be wanting recounts and re-votes until she wins.

    You Obama people need to get over the infatuation. When Hillary takes Pennsylvania will Barock Hussein concede? She still has a 40/60 shot at winning. And once the children are done and the adults take a close look at this guy we will never hear his name again.

    NC will be a toss up in my opinion so don’t speak too soon.

    If Obama doesn’t win any more states besides Mississippi and North Carolina he will be out of the race. Winning North Carolina = nothing; b/c of the black vote there. Hillary is 37% behind there like Mississippi before the vote even starts.

  • Obama S says:

    She’ll stay in and throw so much **** at Obama that he’ll lose to McCain. McCain will be a one-term President, so she’ll have a second shot in 2012. Of course that means we’ll have to endure 4 more years of Republican Misrule, but that’s not important. What’s important is Mrs.Clinton’s own damn ambition.

    I hope so…I live in Charlotte, and it would be great if my vote finished off Hillary and sent her packing

    Hillary will be still asking Obama to be her V.P. when he is being sworn in as President in January of 2009.

    She’ll stay in until there is no chance that she can win. Which is likely the convention since it will come down to superdelegates. maybe she can bribe endorsements out of Richardson and Edwards by then.
